Sindome is one of the most in-depth and realistic games I have ever played. I found it during a time in my life where I was both intrigued and sickened by the current state of MMORPGs. At first I thought it would be the kind of game that would help pass the time for a few days until I moved on to something different.
That simply wasn't the case. The game drew me in and has never let me go. Years later, I am an admin. I still love playing my character from time to time but my real passion is creating new code and new story-lines for the non-admin players.
The game has a somewhat steep learning curve, something us older players and admin tend to forget since most everything is second nature to us at this point. However, we do our best (both players and admin) to help newer characters out as much as we can. (Out of Character. In character we're probably trying to screw you over.)
The game has a large number of help files available in game and through the website. It also has a timeline on the website which was crafted to give both existing and new characters a place to start when they are writing their history and figuring out the theme of the game.
Sindome was my first MOO/MUD and every other MOO/MUD I've tried since has fallen short. If you are interested in a dystopian future where mega-corporations rule the world and Judges are all powerful street thugs who can kill you on the spot if they decide too.. this is the game for you.
