Volume 7 issue 1 of the new Imaginary Realities is out now, after a long delay. Imaginary Realities is the only remaining e-magazine dedicated to MUDs.
This issue contains:
- Choosing an Emoting System – Written by Griatch, this is a discussion of different types of ’emoting’ systems and their implementations using Evennia.
- The Dungeon Keeper – Written by Robert “Hugo” Winter, this is a discussion of the purpose of a ‘dungeon crawl’ in the context of MUDs, along with various ways of implementing the concept. There is some interesting use of group-wide multiple choices from Epitaph.
- What Do I Do Now? – Written by Kavir, this article discusses newbie retention methods and the use of ‘MUD School’.
- The Worlds in Which We Wander – Written by Michael “Drakkos” Heron, this is a discussion about developing areas, the important choices and the fact that area development is HARD WORK, again using Epitaph as an example.
There is a lot of solid content in this issue, so check it out!
