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…
- Gaudiguch, a city dedicated to chaos, disorder
- PVE – fighting
- 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.
