Trying the Free Online Game of Medievia

If you have not heard of it there is a game called Medievia which is an online game for people to play. The game is what people call a MUD which is short for Multi-User Dungeon or in a short a large online multi player RPG. Generally speaking these games are text based and Medievia fits this perfectly. A simple way to put is probably a pure text based version of a game such as World of Warcaft or the online version of dungeons and dragons. The game dates back several years all the way back to 1991 and people have played it ever since then.

The game is very simple being in the same vein as dungeons and dragons or a similar game you simply choose a class at the start of the game. Your choices are Thief, Warrior, mage and Cleric. It plays like your standard RPG game except everything is done completely by text. It’s rather difficult to expand on the true depth of the game but I’ll try to give a basic idea. At the start you do your usual things in most RPG games. You explore dungeons, kill monsters, level up and collect gold. However once you begin to level up the number of things which you can do increases rather dramatically.

So far the only class I have played in depth is the Cleric which I’ve managed to level all the way up to upper twenties, your max level is thirty two. Some of the reasons why the game can get so in depth and complex is because once you reach level thirty two things aren’t actually over, just like any good multiplayer RPG. Once you reach this level you have the option to become level one, keep all your old skills or magic, and begin all over again as a new class which essentially allows you to multiclass. On top of this there are a new endless number of dungeons, zones, towns and cities to explore all which have NPC characters who are a part of the story of the area.

They can give you quests which can reward you with experience gold or other things. There are dozens of clans you can join to network and play with other players or you can even do things such as buy items and take them in a caravan to sell at other towns. You can ride horses, dragons, buy a home, get married to start your own blood line and have children, these children then become playable characters which you can give to other people and you can do other things such as buy your own ship or start your own business. So it’s hard to truly put in perspective everything which you can do in this game. I’ll be honest that I haven’t personally gone as deep into this game as you can or as other people have. However I have been playing the game on and off for several years now.

I’ve been in lots of dungeons and zones, gone on trade routes, joined clans and overall just had a lot of fun. The nice thing about this game is that it’s very much no pressure if you choose to do it that way. Like I said I’ve been playing the game on and off for years now and I’ve never had to worry about my account being deleted no matter how long I left it idle. The game is very intuitive with most commands being what you would expect, typing S makes you move south, N makes you move North, rest makes you sit down and rest, etc. As you can guess since it is a game it is somewhat limited on what you can do but the game creators have expanded it so much that there are very few limits on everything. As an RPG it plays extremely well giving you all of the usual stats which such a game needs.

You have health (HP) mana for magic, stamina for movement, vitality which you need to sleep to restore and you need to eat when you’re hungry and drink when you’re thirsty. The game has a huge player base many of which are very active and the more active clans are usually looking to have new members join and they are more than willing to help you out. MUDs in general are good games and this one is a very good example of a well done MUD. Being so large and in depth the fact that they keep it completely free for anyone with an internet connection to play is nice.

You can play it in a browser but the free application which you can download and install to play it works much better. For people who have extra money they do have the option to donate money which results in special items which can help give you an edge in the game. The game also has simple maps to help give you a small visual idea of what you’re playing which almost makes it feel like a nice text based game/story. The thing which I like most is how you can be a regular player or a more casual player like I am.

This is nice for me because when I’m in the mood I’ll play the game and when the mood passes I’ll let it be. I know that my account will always be there for me when I come back and there’s no requirements for how often I need to be around. If you really like RPG games, something which you can play with your friends, and you are looking for something which is completely free then I would try out this game. The fact that you can play it on something as simple as a dial-up connection is nice as well. So if you have the interest and time I would suggest checking out the online game of Medievia.

How To Choose The Right Auto Repair Shop

When you decide to have a car today, you are considering so much more than you used to. The economy has made us all leery of spending where we don’t have to but in many places in the world, you need a car. This is an expense in several ways and they are; the car payment, the insurance as well and if you are making a payment each month then they require full-waiver which is collision etc. On top of that, you have the car repair. This is the one to factor in today because if you make a payment and the car breaks you still need to pay that car note least you lose the car. This is a headache but if you screen auto-repair shops before you have a repair you can feel out the situation and get better service and a better price. Most people don’t think of and don’t want to think of a car repair shop until it is too late and something goes wrong with the car but some good research at different times during the year is something worth doing.

Some tips to choosing the right auto repair shop and tire dealer

The next time you go for an oil change look at the place to see if they do anything else like tires or auto repair. If they do then check out the prices while you wait for the oil to be changed and the tire rotation to be done and get to talking to the mechanics and the staff because statistically people who are well-known at an establishment are more likely to get great deals and less likely to get ripped off.

Check for whom they are accredited by as well

Credentials go a long way and you should look to see who endorses them and who recommends them. The American Automobile Associations endorses and rates auto repair shops all over the U.S. and Canada. You may even ask them if their mechanics are certified and who certify them.

Private garages versus chains and dealerships

For auto repair, you have choices as to who you go to and there are differences you should take heed of. There are many people who insist on bringing their cars into the dealership to be repaired. This is fine when a new car is still under warranty but people continue to do so after the warranty is expired. This is a fools-game of sorts because it is the most expensive option. The second choice is a chain like an auto parts dealer. They are good for the parts but as far as the services are, concerned it can be cheap or it can be expensive depending on what the service is you are having done so be aware and shop around.

Investing in Automobile Warranties

Automobile warranties are a great investment to make. We all know that sometimes our automobiles can break down at any time. Automobile repairs can be very serious and can require hundreds, or even thousands of dollars to pay for them. In today’s economy many Americans cannot afford to make the necessary car repairs for their automobiles because of the immense repair costs.

Getting a warranty on your automobile can protect you from having to pay most, or if not all of your necessary automobile repair costs. You can obtain an automobile warranty through your automobile’s manufacturer, or you can ask your local car dealership about warranties. Most new automobiles come with some type of automobile warranty called a factory warranty, but you can always purchase an extended warranty when your current automobile warranty expires.

There are two different types of warranties for automobiles; the power train automobile warranty and the bumper to bumper warranty. The bumper to bumper automobile warranty covers most of the car’s parts except those that need repair due to constant use and wear such as tires, wind shield wipers, brakes, brake pads etc. This can be a good warranty to have because it covers the most expensive repairs that might arise. The downside is that you still have to pay for the repairs that are caused by wear, but it is still a good warranty to have because it protects you from larger problems.

The power train automobile warranty covers all the moving parts of the automobile such as the engine and transmission. This is a great type of warranty because a transmission can cost over $3,000 to repair and if your engine goes as well, it is just as expensive, if not more expensive than replacing a faulty engine.

The bad thing about purchasing a new automobile, is that even if the car cannot work mechanically, you will still need to make the monthly payments that you agreed to when purchasing the vehicle. If you purchase a warranty or an extended warranty on your automobile then you are protecting your investment. You don’t want to have to make monthly payments on an automobile that is parked in your front yard because you cannot pay for the necessary car repairs on top of your monthly car payments. When you go to buy your next automobile, consider purchasing a warranty if your automobile does not come with one. You will be grateful when you need a car repair and your coverage takes care of the expenses. Any warranty pays for itself in the long run.
