Old Players' comments page

In this page you will find comments from people that played the game back then.
Not much so far, but i hope that more people will learn about this site later.

Let's start with Pollux. Pollux wrote a post on his blog mentioning MUDA and
i posted a comment about this site. Got this mail back:

    | As soon as I started reading your comment, I got a huge nostalgia   |
    | attack.                                                             |
    |                                                                     |
    |As far as I can remember, my character was named Pollux and belonged |
    |to the Grey Swords guild (or whatever name the guilds had at that    |
    |time). I remember whispering to Bobo, the unsteady room, killing the |
    |bull with arrows, but shooting them from the next room (when it was  |
    |still alowed), being able to look at a distant room, being able to   |
    |complete some of the easiest quest, taking notes and composing a map |
    |with the only other friend in campus who also played (he belonged to |
    |the Round Table). I remember all the begging to the high level users |
    |(gods maybe) in order to get items created or personalized.          |
    |                                                                     |
    |My deep thanks, from my inner child. My academic child is not so     |
    |thankful, but to hell with it, I finished my career anyway.          |
    |                                                                     |

    | I remember being on there being a member of The Children of the     |
    | Mist. My name was Thomas and I carried the SoulTaker Sword and my   |
    | gf on the game was a girl SoulCatcher she was in The Greyswords I   |
    | think...we would have major battles with the Lords of Chaos and one |
    | of my IRL friends at where I played at Eastern Kentucky University  |
    | played Anthrax who was in the Lords of Chaos we would drink beer    |
    | and eat pizza and play all night oh those were the days....ever     |
    | think about bringing it back?                                       |

    | Dear fellows from MUDA,                                             |
    |                                                                     |
    | Lately I was feeling somewhat melancholic and started searching the |
    | web for all kinds of old games. And you will guess it - I discovered|
    | Gandalf's MUDA memorial site. I was more than pleased to read the   |
    | old known names and texts from 20 years ago. I do not remember how I|
    | initially got to the game but I do well remember that I was totally |
    | addicted at that time. I was working at the European Space          |
    | Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt/Germany... well... I am still |
    | there today! ;) They were connected to the BITNET, and there were a |
    | few hidden terminals in some hidden rooms. No need to tell you      |
    | more...                                                             |
    |                                                                     |
    | I made it up to Mage in a few weeks with the great help of the other|
    | Mages and Semigods like Haribo, Natasha, Thomas, Pollux, Terminator,|
    | and of the Gods Grego and Marty. And I remember the bad guy Rambo   |
    | who killed me many times (besides Kthulhu, that is!) :) By the way -|
    | Marty is a German and he really visited us in Darmstadt one day, so |
    | we did shakehands in real life!! Then I participated in the first   |
    | Semigod elections - and I was elected!! What a great experience. I  |
    | remember well my arch-enemy and co-Semigod from Greece - he cheated |
    | with the elections and he did other nasty things I would rather     |
    | forget - ok, it's forgotten now! :)                                 |
    |                                                                     |
    | The best thing - I have got the MUDA source code (from Marty?), and |
    | I kept it on my hard disk during all those years. I came across it  |
    | from time to time, and that is why I never forgot MUDA. Now, what do|
    | you think about resurrecting MUDA? There are emulators around like  |
    | Regina Rexx, and I have a web server running in the internet. Is    |
    | that something we should try to achieve?                            |
    |                                                                     | 
    | Anyway, I wish you all good luck and perhaps we can rejoin some     |
    | time... in good old MUDA!!                                          |
    |                                                                     |
