Other notes:

1) Enter "newbiechat " to ask for help if you get stuck. If an administrator is on to help, they will answer your questions.

2) Amitoune is a roleplaying game, and there are rules against names that are incompatible with the game theme. Please choose your name carefully. At any time while connected, you can type "suggest" to display a randomly generated name that will be acceptable with our rules. Here are some examples of excellent names: Aeetes, Nuala, Ianthe, Izol, and Altarus.

3) As soon as you enter the game, you will still be in character creation. Please read the beginning text carefully, as it explains how to continue. The idea is that you move down and choose your characteristics as you go.

4) When you are finished with your session and want to leave, type "quit" before closing the window. Otherwise, the game will think you are still connected and you can still die.

5) If you die, first enter "stand" to stop resting, then type "recall". Next, find the morgue by typing "beacon". After reaching the morgue, type "getcorpse" to have your corpse brought before you; then get your items.

6) If your pet dies, take its corpse and bring it to the pet doctor. You can locate the pet doctor using "beacon". After you are at the pet doctor, type "resurrect corpse".

This is the first MUD client to ever be made in flash. We focused on customizing for the MUD itself, which means lots of special features you don't find on other clients: health bars, quick buttons, and greatly improved clickable interface for commands. It also supports color and sounds, and we might add features later such as fastwalking (this is only the first version). Overall, this project has taken two people over two months to complete and has required over 6,000 lines of programming in C++ and in actionscript.

If you get tired of the in-game tutorial and want to see the actual game, go west from the Cruach and say explore. If you have trouble figuring out what to do, type help or click on Help -> Help. Also, you can use the newbiechat command to ask for help; if someone else is on and feels like it, they will answer. Remember: lines in the text area that are underlined are clickable; this will save you from typing alot, but you will still have to type in some commands.

Additional notes:
1) The filesize is small because it immediately loads another .swf file from another location. This is required in order to get past actionscript socket restrictions.

2) If the colors annoy you, you can turn off color parsing under options or you can configure the colors typing the "colors" command while connected.

This is a really content rich application, a complex game packed into the form of an application. Takes some time to get used to the controls, but once that's been accomplished, it's great! Long time since I played a MUD, so this is a kick of nostalgia. Nice work!

Wonderful game.

Some colors for the texts are a little bit too bright for me to read, though. Had to squint a little, since highlighting doesn't do me any good in this.

It's promoting the unfortunately dying breed of games known as MUDs, MUCKs, etc., and for that, I commend you. I have some particular requirements when it comes to MUDs I play, and this one doesn't quite fit. I can't really explain to you what's wrong with it, it's sort of an inner, personal thing.

Anyway, to all you people giving it bad reviews because it's only in text; that's what the game is. It's a MUD. That's its genre. All MUDs are text-based because that's a requirement of the genre.
And you should never rate a game based on genre.

What's wrong with the admin on here?

Who ever the hell keeps bootng me, your suck at making games.
I try to make an account, but then this guy keeps comming on and telling me that i'm a hacker and I'm not allowed to play. I'm just starting up for the first time, and you already banned me. I hope flash gets blammed (impossible, I know, but what can I say?)
