Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

That sounds good until you note that experienced players rarely mobdie, so the burden falls mainly on new players and serves to discourage new players from playing MUME. And at this point, I feel we need to be making efforts to bring in new players and keep them so that the userbase doesn't fade away.

Re: Game mechanics basically

The funny thing about this is that when Mume VIII came out everyone was of the opinoin that single-class training styles were the way to go now and there was massive complaint that the new system was too limiting in this way. It was not until later that people experimented more with combos and learn...

Re: Time Sinks

The 1-3 hour thing is one of the few viable points you have here, its not like there aren't things that can be done while you wait for most of the things you describe if you don't enjoy socializing within the game. (Surf the net, watch TV, get a snack, clean up your place, whatever)

Re: Time Sinks

No reason you 'have' to do most of the things described to play MUME. Why *must* you go to Lorien, or *must* you create a focus? I always try and think ahead about going to shops...if that's not feasible I always enjoyed socializing or even, *gasp* roleplaying a little. If you don't like these thing...

Re: Survey: World problems

I can immediately think of two examples where zone reset can lock you in with aggressive mobs (there's a small chance that those have already been fixed because I haven't played much lately): 1) Tharbad chief 2) room with two wraiths at strange black helmet zone near hillmen If possible, I think it...
