Did throughout search today to find some game that supports strongly old-school roleplaying. I found few promising ones, but still I realized that the grind in order to level was in major part of those games.
So.. anyone come across a decent game, where the roleplaying itself plays the major part? By that I mean games where you won't have to worry about stacking bonuses or boosts or whatever you find in mainstream powergaming. Game where you can play lunatic shaman or guiltydriven thief etc. without need to grind or force your character through a narrow questdriven development process. Game what allows to play character with great depth.
MUD:s could be the answer, but still I am more keen to games where you have at least minimum UI to keep things somewhat organized.
Appreciate any directions pointed.
