Description
The Forest's Edge (TFE) is a text adventure designed in a fantasy setting. You must make your way through a dangerous world where civilization is confined to a few small villages and the occasional feudal enclave. In this largely lawless world, you can achieve great glory through works of good, or become infamous through unprecedented atrocities. How you fit in to this world depends largely on your choices of race, alignment and class. The races of TFE are sundered into two major factions, light and dark. The light races - Dwarves, Elves, Ents, Gnomes and Halflings - tend toward good alignments. The dark races - Goblins, Ogres, Orcs, Trolls and Vyans - tend toward evil. Straddling the fence are the Humans, who can any...

Description:
The Forest's Edge (TFE) is a text adventure designed in a fantasy setting. You must make your way through a dangerous world where civilization is confined to a few small villages and the occasional feudal enclave. In this largely lawless world, you can achieve great glory through works of good, or become infamous through unprecedented atrocities. How you fit in to this world depends largely on your choices of race, alignment and class. The races of TFE are sundered into two major factions, light and dark. The light races - Dwarves, Elves, Ents, Gnomes and Halflings - tend toward good alignments. The dark races - Goblins, Ogres, Orcs, Trolls and Vyans - tend toward evil. Straddling the fence are the Humans, who can be any alignment, and the Lizardfolk, who remain neutral, apart from the doings of the mammals. Each class, or profession, is a specialist, and, at their main task, they are very powerful indeed. However, they rely upon each other to make up for their shortcomings in other areas. For example, the warrior is the most robust and can take staggering amounts of physical damage, but his recovery is terribly slow without the healing powers of a cleric. A mage to transport the group, a monk to decimate the ranks of the enemy, a ranger to bring beasts to hand, a paladin to cure the weak, a thief to clear away traps without exception, every class reaps more benefit by joining a group of complementary classes.

One of the best role-playing MUDs on the net, The Forest's Edge features a diverse race, class, religion and clan system that allows you to expand your character's name into a real, vibrant personality. The Forest's Edge has nearly doubled in size in the last year, yet it has still remained friendly, entertaining, and 'real.' [3]
This highly modified mud is almost entirely new code, with many players, and great gods. With 7 Classes, Including rangers and monks, and 90 mortal levels, this mud is easily one of the best out there. An extensive clan system is in the works, along with a religion system, and racial tensions are building as time goes on. [4]

I was introduced to the original Forest's Edge game in 1997 by a friend of mine and was instantly hooked. I had never played a mud before, but had played other ganes. I had no problem figuring out how to play TFE. Much to my (and many others) disappointment, the original game was shutdown in 1998. Some time after the shutdown, the creator of the game released the source code. This spawned several 'clones' of the original game, some of which have died out over time... at one time even I was involved in running one of these games. Of all the clones, this mud stands out over the rest. It has stayed true to the original 'vision' of TFE, without the extra silly and useless features. There are 8 available player classes, Bard being finished/added from the original, Druid currently being implemented, 12 races, player-run clans, in game quests, and items that can be 'customed' from other items found in the game. Magic users cast a variety of cool spells, bards sing songs that benefit themselves and other players, and monks are fightning machines. The world is extensive and detailed... to this day I am still not able to navigate through the world without finding something new. Roleplaying is optional, but definitely something that you can do. The bottom line is, this mud rocks.
