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,

Connection Problems [2012-02-02 06:00:01]
Hi All,

If you experienced connection issues over the past few days it's because my ISP decided in their great wisdom to assign me a new static IP address. That of course created a problem because I had to reconfigure DNS and DNS updates can take up to 3 days to propogate across the Internet. If you're reading this though... welcome back :)

Cheers,
Blobbie.

Downtime [2011-07-23 15:54:25]
Sorry about the downtime this past week. I went on vacation and like a good energy saver shut down all my computers except the MUD server. Unfortunately, there's some inter-relationship between the systems and some stuff queued up and eventually hung the server :)

Cheers,
Blobbie.

New Command: dice [2011-02-06 15:25:38]
You can now roll dice in the game... weeeee, so much fun!

Multiplay [2010-06-23 22:38:50]
I've been asked to allow multiplay since the active player base is so small at the moment. Since this would probably be more fun I'm tentatively agreeing to the proposal. Only 2 chars at a time though for now.

Cheers,
Blobbie.

New Ranger Spell: Smokescreen [2010-04-02 02:25:15]
Rangers now have another trick in their backpack. See the help for full details.

Skills Simplification [2010-03-24 23:08:29]
All teachers can now teach any skill they know up to 80%. Other skills they already teach will be at least 80% up to max depending on their settings. The final 20% is still subject to the usual channels (quests / tomes).

Cheers,
Blobbie.

New Necromancer Skill [2010-03-20 21:00:48]
This has been in for about a month now, but I forgot to add a new item for it. Necromancers can now learn the Chaos Cloak spell. This will aid them greatly in combat.

Cheers,
Blobbie.

Three New Ranger Skills [2010-03-16 15:37:26]

   Multiply Arrows
   Double Shot
