Playerlinks Updated, posted on Sat Mar 14 20:54:26 2015
Posted by: Borealis
Category: Web
The playerlinks code has undergone a revamp.

Firstly, we've changed the link validation code so that a few valid pages that the old code was unable to validate will now be validated.

Secondly, you can apply a tag to a link. This tag can be one of: General, Crafts, Assassins, Priests, Thieves, Warriors, Witches and Wizards; and the display of links can be filtered by the tag.

All links have been tagges as 'General' initially, so you may want to go to the playerlinks page, scroll to the bottom a...

Website Changes, posted on Sun Nov 6 11:57:04 2011

The website has seen some internal changes. Most users should not

notice much of this, but we hope it has increased accessibility.

If the website behaves strangely for you, try to close your browser

and/or clear your cache. If it still behaves strangely, please

bugreport the issue!

P.S. We are aware of the "seemingly logged in as a different user"

bug, and are still looking for the cause. If you can find a

reproducable way to trigger this bug, we would like to know about it!

You can now view open cases, recently closed and closed cases for each Council area through the web site. This has been around for a while but I forgot to link it into the main Council page. Oops! (Thanks Asha for reminding me).

Decafmud[1] now supports numpad walking.

If you were previously using decafmud without problems, and suddenly

it starts acting weird, you can turn it off via the Options -> Macros


[1] the client you get when you press the Play Now link no the website[2]

[2] unless you're using internet explorer 6 or 7

Electoral Rolls, posted on Thu Mar 19 12:06:08 2009

I've added the ability to view the electoral rolls through the Player Council web pages. These numbers are fairly close to "real time", but please note that the roster may include inactive, deleted or (possibly) creator/test characters.


About Us, posted on Mon Feb 16 15:53:01 2009

I've added an 'about us' link to the web-page, showing when we've been mentioned in external media. If you see any other references to the MUD in somewhere interesting, drop me a line so it can be included:


Polling, posted on Thu Feb 5 11:35:29 2009
Posted by: Drakkos
Category: Web and General
Sometimes, we would like to know things from the playerbase, and we don't have any way of putting simple questions across. In the spirit of addressing this, we've added a polling system to the web page (you may have to force a page refresh to see it) and to the MUD (the 'poll' command).

The current poll is just a test - please take a few minutes to try and break it before we start using it for Important Things.

I've added an RSS feed for each of the blogs, because that's kind of cool.

A new page is available on the web-pages, under the Playing->Help submenu ( It lists some of the opportunities available for those who wish to make a more formal contribution to the MUD.

We have added a blogging system to the game, to better serve you! The idea behind this blog is that it gives us an opportunity to announce things that are cool, but too minor for a news post. We do a lot of things, all of the time, and most of the time it never gets wider coverage than a 'fixed' reply on a bug-rep. Keep checking the blog!
