Lusternia – That which was Old is New Again

I recently lost interest in League of Legends. What happened? Weeell… I have physical issues, one of which affects my joints. My wrist is the specific joint I’m talking about in this instance.

So I looked into Lusternia, a game I used to play. It’s a text game that isn’t “hardcore” (your character dies, that’s it, it’s over), but it does require you to always remain in character. The last time I played, there were four “nations”.

Now there are six.

The game has really opened up in a sense, and there’s been some major updates. There is, for example, the following that my readers may be interested in…

  1. Gaudiguch, a city dedicated to chaos, disorder
  2. Wiccans
  3. Gods
  4. Astrology
  5. Tarot
  6. Runes
  7. Healing
  8. Pets
  9. Angels
  10. Demons
  11. Fae
  12. PVP
  13. PVE – fighting
  14. PVE – influencing, for those of you who don’t believe anything should be killed

Keep in mind these all are within the game’s context, not our real-world context. But if you think you’d be interested, feel free to give it a try. The players are usually quite eager to help, and the leveling isn’t too terrible.

The main things you have to look out for are the text – which scrolls by at the speed of sound, sometimes – and staying in character at all times.

If you’re interested, head over to Lusternia’s website. If you’re a coder-type who wants to have triggers and of the such, I suggest Mudlet or MUSHclient. The game is free to play, though there are non-required items and lessons you can purchase to enhance your gaming experience.

For my more regular readers, I am sorry I haven’t been writing any posts. Things over here are still hectic, and likely won’t ease up any time soon.

    What does PVP stand for?

    • myrkr says:

      PVP = Player versus Player. This is where you can kill other players like yourself. (Of course, different organizations in Lusternia have different rules about who you can or can’t kill)
      PVE = Player versus Environment. This is where you can kill NPCs. (Again, some organizations have NPCs they don’t want killed!)
      NPC = Non-Player Character.
