At first I thought of posting this in the looking for new muds to play but that has become the nonofficial thread for materia magica discussions so I decided to create a new topic.
Well as the title says, I'm looking for a new game or a mud that will be able to keep me hooked for a while. Mud-wise, Alter aeon was the first mud that I played and I enjoyed my time there immensely but I stopped playing due to a combination of factors. Other muds that I've tried for several weeks are aardwolf, miriani and materia magica but none of them just seem to be able to keep me interested for an extended amount of time.
I'm looking for a mud that is at least moderately active (20+ users online), has good areas and room descriptions, a large world, does not have arcaic equipment saving limitations such as requiring rent to store eq (am surprised so many muds still force you to do that), strategic combat, restricted or no pk, non-enforced RP, and no remort system. I didn't realize how hard it was to find such a mud but have been searching for over a fortnight without much success.
Btw, anyone knows what happened to project bob? I tried to connecting to the mud without success and their site brings me to a generic dreamhost landing page.
I'm also looking for a realtime or turn-based strategy (online/offline) or an rpg game. There are not many of those that I know of and it seems that most of the recent new releases have been of the arcade/sidescroller genre. Tactical battle and Sound RTS are awesome examples of strategy games but both have their limitations.
