true addict

  • noun The MUD equivalent of what mainstream computer people would call a "wizard", except that in MUD this term is already taken (and is gender-specific, to boot!). Many players claim to be - indeed actually are - addicts, but they don't have the kind of deep knowledge of the game that true addicts possess. Being a true addict is something you have to work at, although not all true addicts bother to make wiz since some consider that the life of pampered luxury which such individuals enjoy will prove corrupting in the long term. It is always understood, however, that a non-wiz true addict could make wiz at any time he or she desired. True addicts can quickly determine other true addicts from addicts, by means known only to themselves... True addicts are never ever plodders - the two terms are mutually exclusive. See real addict.
