  • (1888PressRelease) October 24, 2011 - Duris Mud is the longest serving PVP Diku Mud on the internet! The company has been around since the 90's and has a large staff dedicated to the success of the game. The Immortals have decreed that the Game world has been accelerated while they put the finishing touches on a new iteration of the game. This means grinding experience and getting great equipment has never been easier.

    Duris has been around for over 13 years and appeals to the hardcore PVP and Role Playing Crowd.What is a MUD? It is a multiplayer real-time virtual world, with the term usually referring to text-based instances of these. MUDs combine elements of role-playing games, hack and slash, player versus player, interactive fiction, and online chat. Players can read or view descriptions of rooms, objects, other players, non-player characters, and actions performed in the virtual world. Players typically interact with each other and the world by typing commands that resemble a natural language.

    Traditional MUDs implement a role-playing video game set in a fantasy world populated by fictional races and monsters, with players choosing classes in order to gain specific skills or powers. The object of this sort of game is to slay monsters, explore a fantasy world, complete quests, go on adventures, create a story by roleplaying, and advance the created character. Many MUDs were fashioned around the dice-rolling rules of the Dungeons & Dragons series of games.

    Duris Mud is based on the Forgotten Realms game setting and mainly deals with Race Wars. There are two main sides for players to join, and each option has tons of customization and skillsets to make each character tremendously unique.

    The Good side features Humans, Halflings, Gnomes, Dwarfs, Minotaurs, Thri-Kreens, Barbarians, Centaurs, Half-Elves, Grey Elves and each race has a ton of different specializations to pursue and epic skills. For example You can be a Grey Elf Ranger and have a specialization as a blademaster, which gives you whirlwind based attacks dealing a copious amount of damage in a short period of time. Epic skills can increase your base statistics or give you new abilities to either craft equipment or give you extra skills such as Track or increased memorization of spells.

    The Evil side is harder to play and is recommended only for advanced users and the races get extra benefits because they are harder to play. Races include; Ogres, Orcs, Githyanki, Illithids, Drow, Duergars, Trolls and many more.

    Duris has the most extensive class based system in any online persistent world and gains a large following with die hard D&D players. Each race normally has 12 different class options they can pursue and can elect to specialize even further over time. A human paladin has the option to specialize as a Cavalier which is focused on mounted based combat or a Crusader which focuses on Combat. The classes are so extensive that you have the option in some cases to specialize even further. A paladin at high level can elect to pursue being an "Avenger" which makes them deal even more damage and an entire new skillset. This promotes players being heavily invested in their characters and spending many years optimizing them properly.

    Core classes of the game include, Warriors, Paladins, Anti-Paladins, Rogues, Druids, Conjurers, Sorcerers, Psionists, Mercenaries, Rangers, Reavers, Necromancer, Ethermancer, Clerics, Bards, Illusionists, Monks, Shamans and many more!
