Lothlorien is a very, very unique mud. I know how the players react with new people, and I know how the new people usually respond. Just a quick thought. These players treat Lothlorien like their babies sometimes. I know people work on the mud for hours upon hours trying to improve the game and the pbase. Players may be jerks at times, but you have to remember that it's a game. People are going to act that way. The Immortals What can I say. I know the Immortals want to see Lothlorien grow, I can tell by how hard they work on improving and balancing everything. I am a quest goddess, and do my best to keep everyone entertained with quests so that it is easier and faster to gain specific things that they want. When an Immortal sees someone that they have not before seen, they usually do their best to help the new player out. Also, we do look over every complaint and try to fix it, sorry if it doesn't always seem like it, but we do. The Players We love love LOVE our players on Lothlorien. Even though they argue about little things, and have debates between clans, it's like any other game. There are going to be rivalries, you just need to pick the right side. Usually, the players are very understanding of newbies. Sometimes they'll kill you for fun, but after they kill, they usually do their best to help you get on your feet like an older player, so nobody can tell that you're new. I know when I first started I was repeatedly attacked, but it's a part of the game. Not only that, but it made me a stronger and more skilled fighter. All in all, I love this mud. I'm not saying that it's the best in the world, but it's like home. I hope to see many more good things come from Lothlorien in the near future. ~Freya

When I tried out Lothlorien, I have to say it was the worst mud I have logged onto in 10 years. Not only was I not greeted by the immortal staff, but the immortal staff was behaving like middle school kids which I presume they are. If you are in the 10-12 year old age then this mud is for you, if you are a grown adult, I'd stay away from this mud.

Lothlorien is a very unique mud. When I say that, I don't necessarily mean that Lothlorien has commands, skills, or classes you haven't seen before. When I say Lothlorien is unique, I am speaking of the atmosphere and the overall gameplay. This mud is difficult, interesting, engaging, addictive, and requires a high level of intelligence to be competitive. I have been playing this game for nearly a decade, and while many of the players *CAN BE* jerks, ultimately they want other players to rise through adversity and fight for their right to play on this incredible mud. There are a large number of well-crafted and difficult areas. Many of the mobiles are as difficult (or more so) than fighting players. And aside from well built areas, there is beautifully strung eq, and a direct equipment hierarchy that allows dedicated players enhanced ability in combat. This can make it difficult on newer players, but again, the players of Lothlorien simply want newbies to be fighters, and have the drive to compete. Finally, the coder and owner of Lothlorien (Kalkin) does his level best to be fair, balancing, and efficient in his administrating of the mud. All of which reflects itself with the speed at which he fixes 'bugs' (which is to say, tweak balancing of classes), and adds new abilities for the players. At the end of the day, Lothlorien is a wonderful mud. I truly love this mud, all the players here truly love this mud. Log on, ask a 'Hero', ask if they can even play other muds, ask why they play on Lothlorien. They will tell you they no longer know why they play, they just love it. Warlord

Lothlorien has potential to be a very fun mud, however the playerbase makes it very hard for a new player to get into the mud. The immortal staff works hard to make the environment enjoyable. The head coder listens to players a lot and responds to their ideas and complaints with either code changes/fixes or sound reasons on why things should or shouldn't be a certain way. I also believe the immortals try hard to make the world a balanced place at the end of the day. That said, the playerbase of Lothlorien is completely un-newbie friendly. Though it is supposed to be a PK mud, it is in actuality largely a griefing mud. Players equipped in top end quest gear which takes hours upon hours to accquire (or high level friends who can hook you up with quest points) feed on the new players relentlessly. These overpowered griefers enjoy killing you and sacrificing all of your gear, then waiting until you have regeared to have their friends do the same to you. There is little, to no chance a new player can stand up to these older low level players due to the gear differences between quest gear and lootable gear from mobs. Though I am no stranger to PK, and am not afraid of it, there comes a point where it turns from good natured competitive rivalry to just a bunch of guys who like being jerks. In general, Lothlorien has reached that point. There are definitely players of Lothlorien that try to make new players feel welcome. They will go out of their way to answer questions, give advice and hints, and generally be a good sport about things. However, the majority of the active players are more of the griefing sort described above. If you are looking for a truly competitive environment with blood pumping PK challenge, pass this mud up. If you want to be beaten down time after time until you finally manage to do enough to... Read More

Hey Gnome, apologies for the jerks that play here. I am currently in the process of changing how older players deal with newer players as I realize that it is currently unacceptable. I appreciate your comments towards the administration as a whole, and I am deeply sorry for having caused you grief. Thank you, Kalkin

Honestly Lothlorien is the best mud i have ever played on, staffed with, or owned. I started this mud as a fun (and time-consuming) activity, but Lothlorien quickly captured my full attention and I haven't played anywhere else since. It's truly addicting, competitive, and full of interesting people. Most of the players are from the southern states or Wisconsin of all places. We mean it when we say we have a HUGE mud, we have over 90 areas most of them used constantly and (get this) useful. The class system is balanced and VERY specialized. The races are also balanced, and we have 15 of them. My one warning to you all: this is a PK mud, and if you want to RP heavily, this isn't your place. The players here can be ruthless one second and guarding you like a brother the next. I highly recommend Lothlorien to any and all, an old mud awaits!
