Before you begin your travels through our world, we strongly suggest reading through our website to familiarize yourself with Advent and help answer any questions you might have. There are many helpfiles also available in the game if you come across something that confuses you. Just type: help <topic> in game.

Each MUD’s introductory screen or “greeting” is different, but once it loads, you’ll be asked to start the process of creating your character, usually starting with the first name of your new character.
Each client differs in setup, obviously, but the basic information you will need to know to configure your client to play on -our- MUD is this:
We have a freeware version of zMUD available for download. Install it and simply add in the host and port information and login 🙂 Be sure to select “Evaluate” to continue using this free client.
