Your experience in that starwars game sound distressingly familiar. I've
been searching for a decent text rp game for a long while precisely for this
reason, and most things I've found have either been so fully of other
players bent on pvp you can't engage in the story, or, have so litle story
you have to engage in pvp just to keep things interesting.
For instance last year I reviewed unification wars. This interested me sinse
it was a stratogy game where you ruled a galactic empire, and yet had single
player missions to complete making up a story, for instance one involved
putting enough government resources by to create a university so that you
could send an archaeological team to explore alien ruins on other planets.
The problem? The amount of times I was attacked and my planets pinched by
other players made completing these missions almost impossible.
i'd been through the standard tutorial which fitted me with a reasonable
starting force, but several powerful players just turned up and destroyed
everything I had.
This for me is an absolute turn off, but unfrotuantely sinse most muds and
rpg games online are! multiplayer, people want to interact with eachother
and that usually means pvp, in fact a lot of games I've seen like the Dark
grimoire and time hunter are pretty dull unless! you do pvp, sinse they
really have litle else to offer but grind grind grind!
This is why I'd love to see developers working on games with actual story
and exploration elements.
Beware the grue!
