Description
DarkBlade is a hybrid split into 2 sides. One is CHAOS, the MUD, a gangland city filled with plotting and evil, killing and bribery. Gangs fight for the city, while the corrupt mayor Backy stands between. The staff and players are _very_ friendly. DB includes the basic MUD attributes, plus it's modern and includes programs for elevators, subways, mobile phones, apartments, swipe keys, item caches, heavy safes, a helicopter, planes, and more. The MUCK is a Portal linking Countries, each a theme created/built by players. These include Reciprocity, a covert (spy) RP country with secrets to be revealed; Recreations, a player-built country for re-enacting movies, TV and books; the Pueblo-enhanced area with sounds and pictures which can be added by players [get at...

These include Reciprocity, a covert (spy) RP country with secrets to be revealed; Recreations, a player-built country for re-enacting movies, TV and books; the Pueblo-enhanced area with sounds and pictures which can be added by players [get Pueblo at the site!]; FreeForm, a player-built area which allows ANYONE to edit ANYTHING, no matter who built what! We're waiting for the newest Country, Sci-Fi Colonies. The MUCK also contains new programs, including a Computer system for personal and public-access files and mail and the chance for any player to build major game areas and join the staff. [1]
DarkBlade MUD/MUCK is a hybrid of two different types of game, split into 'sides' of DarkBlade. One is CHAOS, the MUD side, a gangland city filled with corruptness and evil, killing and bribery. Rival gangs fight for the city, whilst the helpless mayor Einstein stands in between, accepting bribes for his trouble. The staff and players are very friendly and the game now includes a level system and is adding a skill tree. It is modern-based and includes special software for elevators, subways, mobile phones, and will have personal appartments and a plane too. The other side of the game is the MUCK side, which consists of a Portal which links different countries, each with a separate theme. These include Reciprocity, a covert RP country with secrets to be revealed; Recreations, a largely player-built country for re-enacting movies, TV and books; the Pueblo-enhanced paradise, containing sounds and pictures (and will have restricted, staff-checked HTML player building); and FreeForm, the new solely player-built area which allows anyone to edit anything within it, no matter who owns what! The MUCK side also contains new software for DarkBlade, including a new computer system for personal and public-access files and mail, some more mobile phones, and the opportunity for any player to build major game areas and join the staff.

DarkBlade is a hybrid MUD/MUCK. The MUD is known as CHAOS, a gang-war city filled with corrupt citizens whose rivalry extends to money, power, sex, and the size of their personal bases. CHAOS sports mobile phones, elevators, subways, swipe keys, sub-machine guns, 100-floor apartment blocks for city-dwellers who have the cash, airports, terrorists, secret passages. The MUCK's Countries are Recreations - Where books, movies, TV shows are recreated; Reciprocity - the exciting new spygame; Pueblo-Enhanced Paradise - With sounds and pictures for those who have the MUD client Pueblo; FreeForm - Where all can build and edit anything. VERY friendly game. [3]
DarkBlade is a new hybrid of the text-based game types MUD and MUCK. One half of DarkBlade is a MUD, and the other a group of MUCK Countries attached by a portal, with varying themes and levels of player control. The MUD half is known as CHAOS, a modern-day gang war city filled with corrupt groups of citizens whose rivalry extends to money, power, sex, and the size of their personal bases. The MUD sports mobile phones, elevators, subways, swipe keys, sub-machine guns, and 100-floor apartment buildings for city-dwellers who have the cash, as well as airports, terrorists, secret passages, and a lot more. The MUCK half has no single name. Countries are Recreations - Where books, movies and TV shows are recreated; Reciprocity - the exciting new spygame; The Pueblo-Enhanced Paradise - With both sounds and pictures for those users who have the MUD client Pueblo (see: CLIENTS); FreeForm - Where players can build anything and can edit what others build too.

DarkBlade is one of the most unique hybrids I've ever visited, and eventually staffed upon. It is a great place for everyone, as we recognize that we have younger people frequent our game. Our rules even allow for the saftey of the younger players, allowing them to be able to visit every area in our game. Many people come to DarkBlade for it's completely unique codebase on the MUD side, as everything has been coded from scratch. We use MUCK Forth (MUF or softcode) to code all of our features, so all of our features are very uniquely done! Our game itself is based off of (a now pretty heavily) modified TinyMUCK version 2.2fb5.30, allowing us to be able to accomodate for those who enjoy completely roleplay, without having to worry about experience points, skills, and the like. We have a variety of unique areas, constantly being added to, taken from, and revamped. Unfortunately, not many people realise that we have this MUCK side to the game, and are discouraged with our current revamp of the MUD. I'd just like to say, personally, that after having worked on the MU* since near the beginning, BOTH sides can offer a great experience, whether you're into gangland gun battles, or feudal warfare between the humans and gods. In fact, we are currently reworking the MUCK side to better provide for people. Above all, we have fun. Everyone knows each other, and although everyone has their quirks, everyone is helpful. Everyone loves the environment we create, and the friendships that we've made through the game. In fact, many of us have gotten so close, we don't realise there's any distance between us! The friendships I've made here, along with the politeness and giving spirit of the inhabitants of the game, are all invaluable. We always want to make more friends! If you're looking for close relationships in a place to have fun and be yourself, then this is the place to be. We also a social... Read More

I've been playing this mud/muck for a little over 3 years, and i've tried playing other mucks, but i end up coming back to darkblade.ath.cx:7575 I think it's the best one, cause of the unique coding structure and the helpfulness of the people there. I also like it cause its one of the few games that are a hybrid between muck and mud. I think everyone should play this game.
