I'm sure you'll get the same old responses here, alter aeon (blah), and miriani (blah.) I've been playing a mud called Blood Dusk lately. It's a bit like the conquest mud I posted a while back, only slightly more developed. The combat system is somewhere between manual and automatic, you have full control over your character in combat, but if you don't make an action before you're supposed to act, the AI will perform whichever action it thinks is best, or perhaps it selects one at random. Not sure. All the mud seems to be so far is strictly combat. I've seen some references to quests, like finding a hermit's dog, or paying your respects to a certain living god, but they all seem to be either not developed, half-baked or exceptionally hard since I haven't managed to complete a single one of them yet. Its definitely worth a look though if you're into advanced mechanics. This is in general, not directed strictly towards lindsay.


As an example of how advanced the combat system is. The most advanced fighting style I've seen is wrestling. In most games wrestling is either just random unlinked throws and junk that barely make any sense. On this game positions are actually taken into account. If you put someone in a joint lock and perform that attack again, you'll tighten up the joint lock instead of applying a new one, and your opponent will be described as struggling to escape your leg lock, arm lock, etc. You also have standing grapples, like headlocks and such. You can also do standing joint locks, and there's even various position based attacks. For example. If your opponent is grounded and you're standing, if you perform an elbow, you'll do a flying elbow drop. I find it kind of interesting, though the wrestling style needs some serious rebalancing. Anyway, if you feel like checking it out:

mud.dusk.org:7000

Gordan or talerous if you need help. I won't always be on as these characters and gordan is my main, but the list of characters I plan to create to explore all skillsets is too long to post here.
