Greetings Jeremy Saunders,
Many multiplayer games can say they are 100% free to play in their browser. Only Lusternia can claim to be a multi-planar realm whose players can both hunt and influence, take on quests in every area, fly through aetherspace, or face trials to become an Ascendant. Yet highlighting these aspects is secondary in the current layout of Lusternia's front webpage.
A large number of players have commented on how to make the website better. Many comments can be found here on the Lusternia Forums. For the front page specifically, some of the more insightful comments and suggestions are outlined below.
- The web page is too commercial and generic. Highlighting what is unique to Lusternia is more effective.
- It's not easy to navigate for old or new players. New players want to read about races, archetypes, etc. when starting a new character. "Game Info" is too broad an umbrella to put this under. Links to "Characters", "Society", and "Planes" on the front page highlight what make Lusternia unique.
- The impression people get from the current design conflicts with the actual features of the game and consequently the kind of people who'll enjoy them..
To welcome mature players that will add to the richness of Lusternia, the front page should focus on telling people what is unique about Lusternia instead of giving generic lines that other MUDs, even other online games, can claim.
