Might be aging myself here, but did anyone get into Clan Lord back in the day? https://deltatao.com/clanlord/
It was essentially a waaaaay low-budget Mac OS answer to Ultima Online, and despite (because of?) some ridiculously unintuitive design, hideous graphics and narrow scope, it was HUGE in RP potential, and even had an unofficial newspaper.
Apparently there’s still a small community of those still playing. I remember it quite fondly.
