Woot Woot! I know Aardwolf has a huge playerbase, so it may not last, but to be 1st even for a short time has a nice feeling to it.

So with the end of the year coming and the holidays right around the corner, now would be a good time to submit a player review of Forgotten Kingdoms, especially if you haven't done so before. These player reviews can be the decision point for someone to give the mud a shot.

Some tips to get the ball rolling:
  • What does the FK and our community mean to you?
    What is your favorite aspect of the Mud?
    What has been your experiences with the other players good or bad?
    If you can send a message back in time to convince yourself to play the mud, what would it be?
    How have you grown as a player from your experience with FK?

Looks like #1 isn't a chance thing that we are to lose after the first week passes. It's ours by fair margin at this point, and I just want to say how proud and happy that makes me.
Most of you know by this point how much our TMC rank means to me. I had spent a significant length of time bumping this thread with daily reminders, and I am sure many of you are thankful I have stopped spamming about it so much (seems we do better without the spam anyway!). The value I place on TMC rank is mostly because I found FK through TMC after my old MUD died off and when my desire to play another sparked anew, but it is also because of how much I love seeing our game grow as a community. It has become not uncommon for us to start seeing 30 players online again, which is something altogether beautiful on its own.
January will make it five years since TMC brought me to FK. That we look like we might be stepping into January in the #1 slot just makes me jump for joy, and that all these many players are about for it only makes me happier still.
Thank you staff for continuing to give us such a great game, and thank you to everyone who has been voting or putting great effort into their RP. As we gain new players, we shape and lead the way of how they will grow and play this game by being examples of strong roleplay and sportsmanship ourselves, and I am thankful to see so many players take this role very seriously.

p.s. don't forget to vote!

Thanks for your work and contributions also
I trained up double-edged bananas because the uber-plantain of doom I scored from the beehive quest was the best weapon in the game. Now it's being treated like a bug and they have gimped its damage! That's not fair! My character is ruined!

Being the original creator of this thread I am also happy. Over a decade ago we where hitting a critical point where our numbers where starting to stagnate a bit. I titled it Advertise or Die specifically as a call to action to start taking some time to do the simple things to get the word out about this amazing game. That original thread got lost, but thanks to the imms, for resurrecting it back to life via 2.0 and 3.0. Seeing our lead continue to grow makes me happy everytime I vote. Good jobs guys and let's keep getting the word out!

We are currently beating games with active player bases cited as being between three to four times the size of ours*. That's impressive. Keep voting, folks.


(We generally have between 20-30 players online and the current second and third place games advertise more than 100 and more than 50 players minimum, respectively.)

Vote early and vote often, folks. We're keeping our five vote lead for now but we have awoken the sleeping giants.

It's because of this vote drive i have been compelled to try FR again after seeing it number 1 on TMC.

i tried a mage probably a year ago and gave up after a week. Now i am back as a priest with the aim to become a druid which i hope is easier.

I also voted just now :)
