Ashirion is the result of 6 years of work online and 23-4 years of work offline, from Wolf. Ashirion is a dark universe of danger and adventure, where the forces of light strive to battle the ever growing menace of a triad of despicable foes. The Shadoen, merciless and ruthless servants of the Shadow Lord. The Void, instruments of a mad God, and the Risen - Undead that think, and reason, footsoldiers in the endless twisted games these beings play. Many events have transpired on Ashirion since the beginning and they are part of the world's history now, heroes have come and gone...shaped the very essence of the Broken Sphere and still they strive to banish the darkness forever. [1]
Set on the mythical world of Ashirion, a place with its fair share of problems, one of these being the fact that the Sphere is broken, aka sundered, this means that like a real planet if you viewed it from space you'd see a broken ball of glass. [2]

Ashirion is a massive, original world with so much history that your first few hours on the MU* are spent swimming in it. At first this seems like a daunting task but when dealing with any new world is it not important to have a decent background? A decent hold on what is going on? In this regard, Ashirion more than provides. Now, in my opinion, a detailed history is great but I enjoy equally creative races or species. I have played on a number of fantasy MU* and after awhile, the basic human, elf, dwarf combo with it's variety of variants becomes tiresome. Not trying to bash these races/species, they are after all classics in many a sense, but playing something new and exciting, stepping out of the box, can be a refreshing experiance. Once again, Ashirion provides both of these things. Ever played one of the cat-like Felin, the Foxlin (the name gives it away ;) ), or jackal-headed Ishanti? Or, better yet, if your rp is up to snuff and you can provide a substantial background for your character, perhaps one of the application races is for you. In any case, a host of both old and new races/species (they are referred to as species in Ashirion) are available to play. Another beautiful thing about this MU* is its incredibly free form environment. I can easily say that it is the most free form out of any MU* I have ever played. This is accomplished in two main ways: Firstly, there is no combat system in the usual sense. Combat is a consent-based series of poses (actions) that the players enact as their characters. That is, one person may say lunge in an open-ended pose and the other will literally choose how or if they are wounded based on their skills and the other persons and the overall basic structure of their opponents pose. When this style is done properly, (I'll get to the opposite shortly) it is a more... Read More
