We are still under development... Nothing works properly. Please get some more stuff to add, it'll be appreciated!
Also NOTE: You must have referers turned ON or at least fake it such that it looks like it's referring from this website to view pictures. Too many people stealing bandwidth. Sorry!
IllusionMUD, started in 1994 as "CMU MUD", is a Dragonlance-Saga adhering
Multi-User Dungeon. For the most part, the world is designed to mimic what
Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman wrote about in their best selling trilogy,
The Chronicles. IllusionMUD is also non p-kill, meaning you may not
attack other connected players on the MUD (for the most part. High level
Gods can turn the global flag on to allow player kills but usually no
need to). This choice was made since many of the players made an interest
in non-pkill, plus the fact that well, the mobs are harder to kill than most
players. Occasionally players with notorious behavior may be offerred
for player killing.
A user-based option for player killing is being thought about. For other cases, there is a "PC Fighting Arena" where players can kill each other if they want, at no risk to their equipment or experience points. Good way to practice skills (spells) though. (Note: we found some spells tend to instantly kill other players but are impossible to cast in time versus warriors as they will be bash/interrupted, and mage vs. mage battles would be "first/fastest cast wins". Anyway please try it out! We're also trying to adhere to the Dragonlance Saga, but rather loosely. We are generally trying to adhere to the pre-cataclysm days but there may be some hiccups in the chronology, it's all in the name of fun.
Lots of changes are in store for the MUD, and new users are encouraged to login and have fun!
Note that this MUD is still in ALPHA mode and you can see things that may change
unexpectedly. Because of the alpha state, we cannot guarantee anything
to remain constant and can't always reimburse for losses. If you don't
do anything real funny, the MUD is relatively stable and
you won't lose items nor experience (unless you do the obvious stuff!)
Brownie points to all those who report bugs, especially those that could
negatively affect yourself!
There are many new skills and features being added to the MUD. The help
files are hopefully being edited frequently, as well as the NEWS command.

Top Deaths :( ... Alas, we see these, so you
get to see them too :p
Please use the free equipment we've given to all new characters. All players get a basic set of equipment upon generation, which includes just about all armor, some food, water, and a weapon. Mages get their first spellbook. Note that all of this equipment, when dropped, will self-destruct so don't put them on the ground if you still want the equipment. Exception is the bag that you can use to fill with stuff you might want to put down temporarily.
