GarouMUSH is a cooperative storytelling MUSH themed around White Wolf's line of Storyteller games, with specific focus on Garou; the werewolves of the World of Darkness. Unlike many other StoryTeller MUSHes, GarouMUSH places its focus on story rather than than on the unique powers of its individual characters. It is very definitely non-statistic intensive; we emphasize drama, not dice, and writing, not rules. [2]

The staff are responsible for alot of the over-arching plots that shape the worldview of the MUSH, and they accept this responsibility well. Always willing to work with the player rather than take an adversarial role, they know that to make a MUSH work you need the players to trust you, rather than fear you. While they can at times seem to be picky on character and story applications, they have been doing this for a long time and GarouMUSH has seen many other similar themed MUSHes come and go over that time... thus the Wizards of GarouMUSH obviously know what they are doing. As for the other players, I couldn't ask for a group of cooler people to roleplay with. The application process keeps the quality of player to a certain standard, and while that may seem to sound elitest... well, it is. If by elitist one means that we like to make sure the players that join the game can form a sentence, use at least decent punctuation, and can be a part of the world rather than try and be above it. So far, of the players that have come through the application process, less then five have turned out to be "problem players". These mainly being people who refused to accept that their characters were not the 'best at everything'. That said, there is plenty of room for your character to excel above and beyond the norm. As for the MUSH itself, we recently went through a massive code overhaul. A lot was added, and alot refurbished. We have a strong playerbase at a current total, at time of this review's writing (8/26/05), of 64 garou characters 28 humans, and 6 characters that fall into the 'other' category (Mages, Other Shifting Breeds, Etc...) While the focus is on Garou themselves, an already established player may apply for a non-Garou or Human character as a foil. Meaning a character that isn't the focus of the story, but rather helps story... Read More
