DiscworldMUD recruitment page

As per a current discussion on the MUD site’s Frog board, it might be a good idea to have an easy-access one-page advertisement for people to link to when trying to recruit new players to our vast, infinite, and altogether awesome fanverse.

I’d like to take a shot at putting one together. So here we go, asking for suggestions as to what information a new, potential player absolutely must have at the first glance. I am thinking a link to the official website, free-to-play, in continuous development since 1991, 70-120 players online at most hours… And a couple of easy-to-share on social networks buttons, of course.

Throw in some comments below, let me know what you think!

    I think perhaps linking to some logs would be a nice touch.

    Perhaps showing some wizard spells and how they work. I know I play an assassin, but I think the spell system in Discworld is perhaps the most amazing game feature I’ve seen in any game.

    Combat logs/Job Logs
    Talker chats showing how the community interacts
    Newspapers (really nice feature that might attract some adept writers)
    Overview of all the different clubs/administrative positions

    This game has a lot to offer and I think that the fact people can still advance while taking a passive approach is especially important which should also be outlined.

    This post is a hot mess, just some quick brainstorming of ideas that I’m sure already crossed your mind.

    I think something else that makes us look terribly ancient and boring is the fact that we still use boards over forums.

    Do recruitment cards with famous Discworld chars. Name, rank, guild, whatever. And you could make them look like the old Uncle Sam recruitment posters; Discworld MUD needs YOU!

    There are a ton of Discworld-related forums out there that we aren’t tapping. Seriously, imagine being able to walk around the various cities and villages you’ve only read about, interacting with much-loved characters, having the opportunity to be a part of one of the guilds.

    Any lover of the series will jump at the chance.
