: play with 2-100 players, blast each other, do quests and train your
: character... What's the fun about World of Warcraft or Everquest or
: something.. it's a virtual world with LOADS of characters controlled by
: other REAL people... it's a MMORPG Marathon. I am a big roleplayer, play
: Dungeons And Dragons with my group once in a week and have a great time. I
: know there is a marathon GURPS role play around there but with that you
: can't play with as much people as in the Marathon MUD.
: so... Marathon multiplayer normally is fun, if the MUD will be done right it
: will be as fun to (and mb more fun but i doubt that because marathon is a
: masterpiece which hard is to copy) but why wouldn't a marathon mud be fun?
: lack of graphics? (if so.. why are you still playing marathon?)
Hey -- I'm a MUSHer myself, since I prefer the story side of things, but on Videoland MUSH, which is a multi-theme video game RPG type thingamajig, we have a Halothon cast going -- I myself play Leela, and the other most active person plays Master Chief and Cortana (I include them because the Marathon and Halo folks hang out with each other a lot). We currently also have a Durandal and a Tycho and a Mjolnir Mk. IV, but none of them are very active. Tycho less so, but still.
...I kinda realize now that if we have a more or less full cast it's kind of pointless to mention it, but I figured some of you guys might find it as neat as I did. I for one love exploring the storylines that we miss out on in the game. (Leela and Cortana, for example, get along like sisters, including arguments and hairpulling.)
