Welcome to Ansalon,
Ansalon is a MUD (Multi User Dimension) 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. He/she can be a powerful Warrior, stealthy Thief, a devout Cleric, a backwoods Ranger, a mystic Mage, a martial Monk, and more!
Ansalon is a mud thats been around for a long time, in fact Ansalon has been up and running for 20 years, and is a stable, well-developed world, with custom code and custom areas to explore. There are always immortals around who are very helpful and open to the constantly changing wants and needs of players.
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 2000 through now! Read them by author, updated as they post!
Newbies are encouraged and 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 _dont_ have to struggle through the often painful process of learning a new mud. There is a great new '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 further Takhisis' evil Knights of Takhisis' cause? No matter what your character wants to do, there's a clan that should suit his/her taste. Many of these groups are looking for fresh blood as well. Its very possible for new players to rise to leadership positions given hard work and a lot of interaction with other players. New/Old clans, Mercenary, Mariner! Ships ahoy! There are rumors of a goblin uprising!
Ansalon, your source for DragonLance excellent role playing since 1996.
