I have to agree, usurper is pretty neat. You can still find it at gamemastersrealm.com. Its one of the few good bbs's that's still around.

True, its not really necessary to advance in the guild, but it's the only way to train your skills past adept and get into the more powerful stuff from what I understand. Perhaps I'll give it another go at some point, the martial arts classes were entertaining with their combos and the like. But it should be interesting to see the non-roleplay alternative that iron realms comes up with once their next two games are finished as well.

There's an old, old game for grinding that I thought was pretty good.
Usurper. I have a copy of it, but I don't know how to host it.

As for Iron Realms, if you have an out of character question, TELL one
of the fate guides. That word, TELL, is in all caps, by the way, to
denote a command. Tell Fate-Guide message. Remove fate-guide and
insert name. Correct spelling is a must, however. This also works with
other people. It's private communication, and fate guides are used to
that sort of question. There are a lot of commands, and I'm not
surprised that they're eluding you. THey're eluding me, and I feel
pretty devoted.

As I said in my original post, Iron Realms seems to be about the
players and their requests. I know what it is to not want to do the
homework to advance in guilds. I may never do it. It's not necessary,
you know.

Most of IR's quests are awesome, and they need to be put into other
muds. In those quests it's not all about grinding. Yet on other muds,
in those quests you have to kill something, go back and get quest
points. I hate quest points. Nothing significent about them accept
getting what grinders like, better equipment. I personally can't wait
to see what IR has for a scifi game. It'll be awesome and I'll
probably stay on that one than I had more of the others because scifi
is more of my thing. I must say, though, that I might try Lasternia
again, since it was the game I had the most success on the first time
playing.

I must be loony, but I love all of the "homework" in Iron Realms
games. There are plenty of muds out there for grinding; most of
them, in fact. Iron Realms is games are some of the few in which you
really have to think about what you're doing, whether you're a
paladin or a mage.  If the IR crew wants to put up a new game for
more hack and slash players --and I'm not knocking that, everyone
has fun in a different way--that would be great, but for one I'd
hate to see the existing games converted into that sort of thing.

Yeah, me too. Iron Rrealms games would be awesome without the
roleplay and guild requirements that have at least 21 steps,
including an interview at the end. Also, in-character when I want
to know, for example, a command, I have trouble asking about it IC.

Not sure how many people this will interest, but this morning I
sent  an email to the iron realms team asking about alternate
versions of  the games with a focus more on exploration, questing
and grinding  rather than on roleplay, pvp and politics. Here's
the response I got.

Response here:

That is actually a good idea and something I have considered,
something with very relaxed rules for PK, gaining 'class', and role
play. However, we currently have two games in production. Perhaps
after those two are released we will look into doing something like
this.

Thanks for the email.

Looks promising, in my opinion at least. I've always wanted to get
deeper into the iron realms stuff without having to worry about
the roleplay side of things.
