It occurs to me I could stand to write down how I came to CaveMUSH. There isn’t much to tell, so I won’t be wasting much of anyone’s time.
As it’s irrelevant I’ll gloss over the years spent on role-play MU*s and say that I found myself on an old MUSH called Delphi MUSH. It was a no-quota build-as-much-as-you-want sort of thing, which I enjoyed. Real life, as is its wont, got in the way and I had to leave MU*ing in general for a while save the occasional popping-in. Feeling the old itch to build and chat, I went looking for Delphi again only to discover that, in my absence, it had shut down. So, I headed on over to The Mud Connector and started poking around. After a good bit of searching, I came across CaveMUSH.
It was different than what I was used to, primarily in code-base, but I’m glad I found it. The “regulars” are nice to chat with, RedWolf, Nrg, and RLaw usually more than happy to either help out with a technical issue, or just shoot the breeze. The “sleepers”, when they unidle, are often ready to pass on interesting stories about MU*ing history (just pester Finrod for TinyMUSH stories, for example–well worth the listen) or, as well, shoot the breeze.
All in all–CaveMUSH is what MU*ing should always have been. Relaxed, fun when appropriate, serious when appropriate, and overall a good place to hang one’s e-hat.
Yeesh, I’m starting to sound like a freakin’ advertisement over here. Not that it’s not deserved, but. Ah, well. Let’s see if I can keep the verbosity going.
