Recently my friends and I have been searching around for a good free online game that we can all enjoy. So far we have tried Hyperiums, Runescape, Kol and a few assorted other less known ones. I was wondering if anyone here knows of any really good ones that are out there.

It's hardly complex (what MUD is? :P ), but I have progressed that far that i mainly stay around for community, rather than any ingame achievement.

Kings Of Chaos is a good online RPG. Based on the lord of the Rings theme. I played it quite some time, but i resently quited because i didn't had time for my account. It's good though, i've been on rank 1507 of 89,328. It's not hard, but it takes time to be good, and time to keep up.

There are 400 words in the dictionary that begin with "self" and only 8 that begin with "fellow".

The clicking gets tedious in KoC, and the sabbing sucks as well. It can be fun, but it got old for me fast. Then again, I only reached like 4000 or so, but I got involved in a guild spat around that time and got the guts sabbed out of me.

sabbing sucks, i admit, that's why i quited as well, beside the fact i didn't had time. And wars suck as well.. my commander couldn't live without wars, so i ditched him constantly. But KoC is fun, for a while :P

If timekillers is what you're after, Everwars/ is worth a look. Except it isn't, but nor are most online games.

For simplicity and a vast, almost entirely literate community (a very rare thing among MMORPGs), NationStates is your best bet.

I downloaded tibia. It looks like it might be fun, except for the fact that it won't move faster than 3 frames per second. How do I make it move faster? Is it somehting to do with my connection?

EDIT: Nevermind, fixed it.

It's completely free.

AdventureQuest(www.battleon.com) is good if you like mindless killing. There's not too much strategy, but it's amusing.

Vast community is right. There is a forum that takes takes up some disk space. Just a little.

I play an online game. Unfortunately, it's single player.

(And single-handed.)

Indeed. Now Jolt is one place I would *not* want to archive, nor get stats of.

Compared to that, our pitiful 15,400 threads, 269010 posts and 6701 members are quite manageable...

Yes, well, it was the first thing that came to mind when I read your post.

If you are going to continue posting in this topic, can you please talk about something that is neither illegal nor awful?

But of course.
So Ben, since you seem to know Nationstates, do you still play it? Anyone else?

Holy crap. Google manages to be worse than babelfish.
Is there no way a man can simply fondle his testiclage in peace without the internet trying to interpret him?

Maybe, if you do it in English.

However, this is not Desp; I imagine some people might object to the current topic.

Edit: Babelfish came up with exactly the same, by the way. Minus the second "is" at the end.

Okay, screw this nonsense. In order:

「」 (These are essentially quotation marks.)

陰嚢 ("innou", scrotum)

で ("De", particle for setting/manner, indicating that the scrotum is the manner in which the verb takes place.)

遊んで ("Asonde", -te form of "asobu", to play. Te form implies an action that has been taking place and still is. The object of the verb is an implied first person. [It can also imply polite/keigo imperative, but that's not the case in this sentence.])

を ("Wo", accusative particle, indicating that "[I am] Playing with [my] scrotum" is the object of the verb.)

言いたい ("Iitai", "want to say", with first person again as the implied subject.)

が ("Ga", but)

射た ("Ita", past participle of "iru", to shoot)

いる ("iru", to be [animate])

んだ ("nda"; "da" being impolite conjugation of "desu" [copula], "n" being kansai-ben equivalent of "no"; "no desu" implies something definite and in the future.)

So:

"I want to say 'I am playing with my scrotum' but I will be shot."

Speaking of scrota, I have a present for babelfish. >8E

Wow. I really should learn Japanese some time. It seems I miss out on a lot by relying solely on Google and Babelfish. :P

The fact that my primary interaction with Japanese comes from reading TM's posts makes me believe firmly that I am better off not knowing Japanese.

—Alorael, who would be afraid of any good computer translator. Translation is difficult, so the computer would have to be artificially intelligent. Very intelligent. Possibly even strongly intelligent. If an AI gets that far, who is to say that what it translates will be what was entered? "We will bury you" indeed!

And a very, very simple language to translate into. So certainly not English.
