Just joined the server maybe a couple of weeks ago. It is by far the best server for actual RP in the brutal world of Hyboria! You won't find griefers here. You won't find admins taking advantage of their position. And you most certainly won't find what I call "chest bumping pvp", where all there is, is talk about how big and bad you are as a character- only to be cut down to size (sometimes literally in half!) in that instant. And since such occasions imply that permadeth could happen you and the other player(s) are much more hesitant to actually start a fight unless you are extremely confident in the outcome. Will you usually lose? Of course, this is Hyboria! But sometimes... just sometimes, you win. And that's good enough for me!
So if you want a good sense of what it's like to 'live' in Hyboria's enchanted sands, pick up your cross, and park it on The Exiled server. The only way this could be better, was if it were in VR!!
