rusticleman: Greetings from a New Player!
I'm a new mudder who happened to discover Aardwolf via a friend who directed me to some mud sites, and I must say that I am having a wonderful time. True, I have died quite a bit, but what's life (be it real or virtual) without risk? Although I might should think a bit more about them before I jump right in...
Anyway, I play under the name Modred, and though I'm only Level 13 right now, I don't plan on staying there for long. Just thought I'd drop in and introduce myself. See you all online!

haha, "don't plan on staying around too long"
all i got to say is 7 years ago i joined never having played a mud before and also didn't expect to be around too long. 7 years later and way too much time later, i'm still there. it's addictive bud :p

I was the exact opposite, I'd heard about MUDs since I was about twelve (We Brits invented the concept, after all), and I always thought they sounded incredibly cool. Getting online in those days generally cost more than actually buying a house, though.
So when I finally got on the net in '95, I went scouring for MU** type things, expecting wonders of them, and with a few notable exceptions, I've always been kinda diappointed. Aard is one of those exceptions.
Welcome to your new home from home ;)

Aard IS the only MUD, Matt, are you smoking crack again? ;)
Welcome. Arrr and stuff.

I dunno. I've always heard you meet some really weird, creepy people on MUDs. Especially Aardwolf. And really especially IMMs and former IMMs. Haven't met one yet that wasn't totally odd.
(Watch out for that Wolfe guy, I heard he meets up with girls from the MUD and talks them into getting married.)

Yeah. Gotta watch out for that Saphyre chick, too. I hear she lures poor unsuspecting males to distant continents.

I believe you misunderstood me. I don't plan to stay 'there' (Level 13) long. I'll stick around the mud for a quite a long time, at least that's the plan.

Haha. Aard is addictive. Wait till you start making friends etc :) For me, I totally love my friends on Aard. Welcome anyway.

I hate every single person I know on the mud, especially all my clan members.
