Welcome to d20MUD: Star Wars
Welcome to the home of our free star wars mmorpg. We are a genre of mmo that preceeds the earliest graphical mmos, yet has the fun, enjoyment and lasting power to keep thousands of people interested them today, and going forward into the future!
Why text over graphics though? We prefer to say, why not text in addition to graphics? Most text game players also play graphical mmos, but what is the advantage of a text game?
- Portability: You can play on your smartphone, tablet, laptop anywhere you have an internet connection.
- Role Play: There's no better medium than text to have fun with role play.
- Strategy and Smart Playing: With the use of triggers and aliases, which almost all game clients support, you can really use your brain to maximize the efficiency of your playing ability.
- Awesome PvP: PvP is fast and furious in text games and the ability to role play out the combat is second to none for the avid role player.
- Playable by the Visually Challenged: With voice to text programs, you can have a lot of fun playing text games where graphical mmos would be impossible.
When it comes down to it, we simply have to ask you one question? Do you enjoy books in addition to movies? If you can say yes to that then there's no reason you wouldn't enjoy a text game. Both books and text games rely on the imagination which can often conjure more powerful mental and emotional images than just looking at graphics, however beautiful they may be.
So how about our own little text game? Well it's based on the star wars universe, set in the sith wars era of the knights of the old republic timeframe.
