By far the easiest way* to start playing MUD right away is by using the Java-based client program that we provide here. There's only one catch: newer versions of Internet Explorer do not always have a Java "virtual machine" installed, thanks to the lawsuit between Sun (the makers of Java) and Microsoft. What this means to you, dear Player, is that if you wish to use this client, you may have to install Java support on your computer. Sun's Java VM can be found at

With Java installed, you can start playing right away by clicking one of the links below:

If you'd rather not install Java, or for some reason prefer not to use this client program, there are other ways to play.

*Unfortunately, with recent versions of Java, it's not that easy to play anymore. Before you can use the Java client, you need to add and to the list of site exceptions in the Java control panel. I apologize for this inconvenience, but I'm not going to buy a code signing certificate just because Oracle/Sun cannot properly implement a secure sandbox for Java applets and decided to use this kludge instead.
