A mud based on Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, we've tried to create a blend of role playing and hack-n-slash elements, to offer a little something for everyone.

This isn't your standard, stock ROM mud. We don't have skill and spell "groups", you take each skill and spell individually, and shape your character exactly how you like, it is impossible to have a "cookie cutter" build.

Play any of 9 class and 20 race combinations, with the ability to multi class, giving immense options in your character's potential array of abilities. Random loot drops combined with predefined objects give players many options for their equipment.

Objects are somewhat more immersive than most muds. We have an extensive random loot generation system, which creates millions of variations of items. You can push, pull, or pry objects as well, all with varying effects. One example I've seen is players pulling corpses of other players into a safe room so they can retrieve their equipment after dying to a tough monster. Objects can also be buoyant, and thus float on water, and furthermore, drift in the direction the wind is blowing. Trees age and grow, you can pack tobacco in your pipe and smoke it, scribe scrolls, erase them, and more.

[U]Some of our features:[/U]

races, and MUCH more.).

- Stronger mobs drop stronger random loot. Bosses set up to have loot tables.
- Boss mobs have typically much better AI.
- Group ranks, so your fighter can be in front and soak all the damage. Allows for interesting strategy.

players can collect materials from smelting/cutting objects and from
skills like mining, prospecting, and more!

- Dynamic weather; each area has it's own climate, and weather can
affect your character in many ways (Rain can put out your torch, you can
slip and fall in combat, snow/rain washes away tracks/blood, etc...), and
the weather shows up in the room! (If it's been raining you see pools of rain,
if snowing it will show blankets of snow, etc..)
- A QEditor (Quest Edit) custom created for OLC.
- Multitudes of expansions to the stock OLC, including new
sectors, obj types, npc races, act flags, and much much more.
- Weapon specialization for fighters.
- Elemental specialization for wizards, giving them an edge
when dealing with their element of affinity.
