A description of our wonderful little MUD

(Blatantly stolen from the Mudconnector Listing.) Welcome to Ansalon,

Ansalon is a Dragonlance MUD (Multi User Dungeon, Text Based Game) where a player can become an imaginary character in the DragonLance world, and interact with other players who are also playing at the same time.
Your character can be a Silvanesti Elf, a Neidar Dwarf, a Human, a Minotaur, a fun-loving Kender, or any of a multitude of [races].

Ansalon has been up and running since 1996. It is a stable, well-developed world, with custom code and custom areas to explore.
Even over a two decades later, we're making upgrades and changes on a regular basis!

Ansalon is always looking for new players with new stories to tell and new conflicts to insight.
Speaking of stories, check out our stories page!! Thousands of stories from 1999 through now! Read them by author, updated as they post!

Newbies are encouraged!
With them in mind, Ansalon offers detailed maps and lots of people willing to help out and give advice so that folks unused to Ansalon _don't_ have to struggle through the often painful process of learning a new MUD.
There is a great 'USE' command for almost any object you find, give it a shot!
Ask questions on the Newbie channel (or OOC), get all of the free maps from the school.
And READ that email we sent you, it does have some great information on how to get started!

We fully encourage clans and other organizations. Perhaps you'd like to join the Solamnic Knights? Or join the Conclave of Mages? Or maybe you want to take over the world in one of the wings of Takhisis' Dragonarmies? No matter what your character wants to do, there's a clan that should suit his/her taste.

This is the Ansalon people talk about, where we share our love of the DragonLance world without an iron fist... We welcome all of you home.

Recent additions: 5 coin system, full on insane fishing code!, drinking anywhere that makes sense, corks & labels for potions, fountains that gurgle and refill, nuances that make the game feel real, much much more! See our changes page on the web by year at:
