  • Avalon: The Legend Lives is a text-based online multi-player role-playing game world that was first released on 28 October 1989 at the gaming convention Adventure 89. It has maintained a continuous on-line presence with consistent and intact persona files and player history since the late 1980s, rendering it the longest continuously running on-line role-playing game in history. While it follows closely in the tradition of many early Multi-User Dungeons, it was Avalon that pioneered many features that have since become signature components of the role-playing game genre: real economies, distinct ecosystems and weather effects, gods with followers and priests, player housing and autonomous governments, skill-based real time PVP combat, and a fully realized warfare conquest system as well as pioneering plotted quests rather than the standard puzzle or treasure dash systems seen in first generations MUDs and MUA. Within Avalon, players are offered the opportunity to "live another life"; to fully immerse themselves in the gameworld—a world of merchants, thieves, princes, gods, dragons, and more. It was the first game of its—or any—kind with its own history and narrative that was decided by the players themselves. (en)
