Hello! I'm Belle, and I'm a new player here as of yesterday, and a new player of MUD/MUSHs in general. I've been wanting to take a stab at Sindome for a long while now, and yesterday I finally made my first immie. I've decided to make my character a native of the HMP after looking at the map, but aside from the mention in the Timeline of its establishment, I couldn't find any lore across the site.
Obviously the society of the HMP would have an impact on my character's history which I'm currently in the midst of writing, hence my search. Is there anything akin to a lore-writing team that could give me a rundown on the differences (if any) between it and wider society?
I understand that most population centers aren't too different from Withmore besides turning the dial on overpopulation and class issues up to eleven; there is a pseudo-equality between races, creeds, genders, sexual minorities, etc., but would that hold true for the Protectorate?
I don't think I need to go into the issues and intolerance that arise from a religious society, especially one that could be written as fundamental in their beliefs, which could occur as a reaction to the "denigration" of society, but I'm not going to pretend like I have any say over lore, as its ultimately up to staff. However, is this really the case, or should I assume that the HMP is no different than the rest of global society?
(Though I would like to point out that a fundamental religious and intolerant society would be quite themely and could make for great histories of people fleeing persecution, smuggling booze, soda, coffee, and the like.)
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
