Hmm... Im very much into MUD as RP game but it comes from my pen and paper
background.

Can someone suggest one or two top quality newbie freindly MUSHes?  Im not
a newbie RPer but I dont want to have to go through an applciaiton process
that will take a long time just to see how they are doign things...

Yet another side note: Thsi debate-- role playing v. rule playing, goes way
back into pen and paper.  The MUD debate seems to just parallel everything
we've gone through there...

There are about 4 terms I am aware of for "rule players" in the rolepaly
community...
"Rule play"
"Roll play"
"GOPer (Game Oriented Player)"
"MinMaxer (a specific kind of GOPing)"
