NodeJS based MUD engine with full localization support
- Full localization for any strings displayed to the player after they log in. This isn't a common feature in MUDs so I'll explain it. Player A and Player B log in, play the same game and see a different language. Same items, npcs, rooms, etc, different language.
- Scripting is event-based. Put a listener in the script attached to your mob and it'll automagically happen when the event is emitted. Adding new events is easy as npc.emit('eventName');
- Pfile saving in JSON, easy to parse for external usage
- Rooms, items, and npcs are easily described in yaml. No wierd bullshit ~~~~ and byte-specific parsing that requires a GUI editor to build.
- Arbitrary room exits custom to each room not locked into n/s/e/w and it's not a pain in the ass to add them
- Basic leveling system
- Basic combat sytem. Due to the way the repl works it could be used to do turn-based or real-time combat without changing the base functionality.
- Basic, easily customizable/overhauled skill system
- Basic channel system
- NodeJS >= 0.6.2
