Hello everyone. First to introduce myself being older than average player(mid 30s) and my profession and studies being related to PCs I played a lot of online games over the span of almost 18 years but I got little to no experience on online MUDs(just a few weeks Avalon from text MUDs and Drakkar from graphical ones plus one more in 2001 that I cant recall) even though I played lots single player MUDs in early to mid 90s, definitely handling and the experience is not the same.
Started a char a bit on the tutorial, I usually like something close to or a paladin so I picked up Templar here to check it out. Got to admit the text client is very polished to what i remember on old MUDs and looks like being easier to learn. The only thing I dont like is the 10 min kickout if you got to afk a while. Can sometimes annoy cause when at home I may have to pause to take care my pet or the house etc and at work even though I got lots of mini breaks I got some afk times. I used to be good at RPing but havent done that in pretty much a decade so initially I probably should find a MUD where I can take it easy or slower back to RPing and also in general. Moreover in Avalon for example there was a problem that those that leaders the guilds you needed to advance were players who rarely logged so joining one took a week of trying to find the right person. Then there was some ranking and achievement system where higher ranked people who werent online mostly had to grant you certain achievements as completed so after hitting a wall i left it out - I do hope there isnt any situation like that here. It may come as a suprise but I love grinding mobs, especially if the rewards on character growth are worth it and, moreover, I sure like crafts too like making weapons/armor etc. I am not someone who likes much PVP although occasionally I do like to get involved in it as long as mechanics in the game doesnt ruin the gaming experience of the player you killed.
Taking all that into account would Imperian be a good game for me or any other Iron Realm game you would suggest? Checking all would be hard with the free time I got nowadays so I would prefer to invest time in the right game
Sorry for the long text and thank you in advance
