I feel like it's a mud, or could be, depending on whether you choose to =
run
it in persistent world mode.

As I understand it, you will be able to play the thing solo/offline and
follow the prepackaged plot until you "win" and then delete the thing, =
which
wouldn't be very mud'ish.

But then I consider our private UO shard thingie a mud, too, and when NWN
comes out, we'll consider switching software from POL to NWN.

I think, if we're a mud, and we can replace our software with NWN, then =
that
would make NWN some mud software, too.

'Course, if their scripting language lives up to the hype, it could also =
be
very Quakish, Diabloish, CRPG'ish ("you win! now logout and never come =
back")
or whatever else people can dream up. So I guess it would depend on the
implementation.
