ABOUT Shadows of Isildur RPI MUD

Shadows of Isildur is a text-based online game of the variety usually referred to as MUDs, an acronym for Multi-User Dungeon. Perhaps the most helpful way to think of it would be to consider it an interactive novel; you will take on the role of a character in this novel, and you have the ability to shape its outcome in whatever way you feel comfortable.

Unlike most other MUDs on the internet, Shadows of Isildur is an RPI, an acronym that stands for Role-Play Intensive. Although our code is complex and enjoyable to play with, the main goal of both our players and administrators is to engender a realistic and engaging environment in which to roleplay. Therefore, the focus is on the characters themselves - their quirks, lives, and ambitions - not on numerical statistics or skill rankings. In fact, you will notice that we have taken great pains to hide things that are generally the hallmark of MUD mechanics: you will encounter no numbers whatsoever here. Everything is specifically engineered to help further the suspension of disbelief necessary to fully engage yourself in roleplay - which is strictly required and enforced.

Another important thing: unlike most other MUDs, in keeping with our aim to provide a realistic and well-crafted environment, the death of your character is permanent. Again unlike other MUDs, however, it is entirely possible to play through a character's entire life without ever needing to put him or her in direct danger - crafters, scholars, and other such professions abound. However, make no mistake: the moment you leave civilized areas, life can become nasty, brutish and short rather quickly. Combat here is realistic; and just like real life, combat here is harsh.

That said, we cater to the more adventurous player as well as to the socially-oriented ones. With more and more of Middle-earth coming online, dangerous and long-forgotten places to explore are not infrequent: some hold riches, while others hold only death.

Remember: here, at Shadows of Isildur, only you are in control of your PC's destiny.

We should do an online CK2 game. What add-ons do you folks use, if any?
