Created by Iovan around 2009, Dragonball Advent Truth is a RPI (Roleplay-Intensive) MUD that has stood against the test of time and evolved over the past decade+, offering players a unique venue for roleplaying in the Dragonball universe. Set in an alternate timeline where the Saiyan empire of Vegeta separated from King Cold and still survives to this day, Advent Truth's setting offers a unique blend of familiar, fleshed out, what-if, and homebrew elements focused on the North Galaxy of Universe 7.
Beyond roleplaying, there are the obvious MUD elements with a vast amount of PvE content to whet one's appetite for exploring and fighting using the game's more engaging combat systems, including a unique combo system for hand-to-hand/martial arts combat. Progression feels weighty and impactful, with over a dozen different races to play all with their own unique quirks and potential playstyles enhanced further based off of which Sensei you choose for your skills and the Traits you choose to further flesh out a playstyle. With the ability to take over planets and the presence of immortals who can handle NPCs, events, and alter the very planets based on the actions of the players through roleplay, Advent Truth offers a unique RP experience in the DBZ universe like none other in the MUD-verse.

Note: We now handle all communication and handling of biographies/RP logs through Discord as our old site of advent-truth.com and forums have unfortunately been bought out (do not go to that site as it's now a malicious one!). Our host name also had to change from advent-truth.com to mushhaven.com with redirect attempts being shut down by the previous host. Despite these struggles we have maintained a decent player count with friendly players and imms more than willing to help new folks out.
