'Tis said that only the Unique survive... and Legend is indeed a
land of the truly Strange, for there are Elements found here that are Scarce indeed
in other Worlds, and to the experienced Explorer they offer much to be discovered....
LegendMUD is a highly customized environment, with features unlike
most muds you may have seen in the past. Below is a brief tour guide through some
of the features that Legend offers which set it apart and make it special. They are
in no particular order, so that you can browse through the pages in this section as
Legend has a unique system which allows players to speak in much more realistic
prose than is possible in traditional muds. Socialization demands eloquent
expression, and Legend's facilities deliver this. Set up moods for your
character that affect the output of your commands, and let your temperament
show in your roleplay. Legend also offers a wide array of features designed
to enhance roleplay, ranging from all the way to setting aside a special
space, the Out of Character lounge, for those who wish to just chat about
their day at work or school. If you have ever hankered for a Spanish villa
in Viceroyal Peru, or for a
sturdy cottage bordering the deepest part of Sherwood Forest, now you can
fulfill that dream. Legend offers a wide range of available housing, which
players can actually build and furnish to suit. Lastly,
a world is so bland if everyone is seen only by their name. Legend offers a
system whereby players can register a special description so that they can
each be seen in a unique, distinctive manner by all those around them.
- Skills system
Legend was one of the first classless games on the Internet, and offers a
unique and fascinating system for developing your character. Choose from a
wide array of skills and abilities, and let your home time period and city
determine in which way your character will grow.
Spells on Legend aren't merely convenient macros you hit. Instead, magic is
done by learning syllables in an arcane language, and finding the proper
grammar and syntax to express them. Or perhaps you prefer the life of an
herbalist, wherein the properties of herbs you might have growing in your
garden are revealed to those who know how to make amulets, teas, and potions.
- Fun stuff
Legend pushes the boundaries in countless small ways as well. Missile
weapons, vehicles ranging from the primitive to the technological, furniture
you can sit in, under, or around, and countless other small touches make
it a place where there's always something new to discover.
- Clan system
Anyone who plays online games is aware that the thing that keeps you coming
back is other people. Legend offers a flexible clan system that allows players
to form groups and clans with shared common interests on the fly, and offers
a dynamic and flexible system for voting in clan leadership and managing the
clan membership. And, of course, it also enables warfare between clans who are
of a mind to do battle!
- Internal game mechanics
A powerful scripting language forms the backbone of Legend's unique features.
