New Zones and Spells added to the game! [2018-12-18 20:42:17]
Lerges and Whispering Woods have been added into the game on the continent
of Ark'num.  They can be found by following the Scelestus river west, then
look for "Underneath a Dying Tree" south off of the Wetland's Trail.  Also,
you can now move to Ark'num via the movers in Lerges (currently not trolls,
demons, or vampires).

The following spells have been added into the game: group heal,
group invisibility, group sanctuary, morph

These spells can be trained by exploring those new zones, Lerges and
Whispering Woods

Enjoy mudders,
Mirexis

Mud Now Supports Auto Detection of Client Size [2018-12-16 19:26:46]
If your MUD client supports sending terminal dimensions to the MUD server then you can turn on auto detection via the following commands:

   auto width
   auto height

This probably should have been added a decade ago but I just didn't get around to fixing the code to properly perform telnet negotiation.

Celebrating 100 days of continuous uptime! [2018-09-12 00:18:23]
Wow, it's an impressive record... all those years of crashing every half hour or so, then every 12 hours or so, then once a day, on to once every few days have finally come to an end. Several months ago I fixed a tough to track heisenbug and since then we've been rock solid stable. To celebrate, for the next few days, you can receive your special celebratory gift. All you need to do is go out and kill something :)

Cheers,
Blobbie.

Wiki and Forum have been updated to latest versions [2018-05-24 18:13:58]
These had been broken since I migrated to the current server.

Recently I went through the painful process of upgrading and reworking the themes to work with the new versions.

New area: Dreamscape [2018-02-06 21:16:24]
Looking for something new to explore? Grab 50 of your biggest buddies and head over to the Astral Plane... Track down Taumaurile and he'll hook you up with a plan. There's some sweet ass stuff there, but first you'll likely endure an ass-kicking or 10.

Compliments of Teshaghez!

New website client! [2018-01-05 23:08:33]
Whipped up a new web client for the quickies where you can't access the mud from your usual client. Also helpful for random website visitors. May do more work around it since it doesn't use telnet at all and could support separate panes with up-to-date score, inventory, equipment, and recent communication.

Check it out at https://www.wocmud.org/client.php

Filesystem Corruption Issue [2017-09-06 22:28:36]
Server had been experiencing some issues over the past week and then it crashed again tonight. Unfortunately some of the player files were corrupt and unrecoverable except via backup. Please let me know if you have any specific issues.

Cheers,
Blobbie
