Accursed Lands is back up and I wanted to share with you all the new address.

You can reach us at     66.11.164.23   port 8000

A great mud for those of you who enjoy a challenge.

I've been in the accursed lands for 5 years now and in many ways, the game, players, creators and the occational deer hoof to my skull challenge my best efforts to completely dominate the world.

You can also check our makeshift forum site at

Every game has weapons and armor.
In AL you can craft your own weapons & armor

Every game has a place where you can buy all kinds of items.
In AL you rent your own shop and stock items that you would like to sell to other players.

If you need something to eat, you can buy a slice of beef in most games.
In AL, you can hunt down your own food, skin the corpse and butcher meat from the corpse.

If you are thirsty, take a drink from a tavern or if you want to take a bath, dive into a fresh water lake and swim about.

Everything you do moves your character to becoming better at that particular skill. Just like in life.....the more you do, the more you learn.

This is a small list of skills

meditation - contemplate your lifes work
logging - cut down a tree
wind instruments - play a tune
gathering - discover herbs in the forest
repairing - sword needs to be sharp to make a clean cut
perception - got to watch out for those theives
carpentry - take that tree and turn it into a fine log
glass making - make something shiny - it could be very valuable
pilfer - working for a living is too much work
snap shot - who needs to aim at a target
whittling - anything from a torch to a spiked wooden club
basket weaving - pick a few flowers, put them in a nice basket
metal working - you need that sword & armor by next week..no problem
skinning - I can make some good money as a fur trapper
butchering - everyone needs to eat
envenoming - assassination is my game
fire making - for those cold winter nights & dark hallways
stringed instruments - music is good for the soul
bashing - you're in my way.....move or I will move you
geology - those ores have flakes of gold....I'm RICH
palming - you want to see a magic trick ?
weaving - give me some simple grass and I can make most anything
blocking - You're not leaving this room
fishing - a simple day in the sun, relaxing with your line in the water
gem cutting - I can take that rough stone and make sparkle
glass blowing - I like to work with hot stuff
lock picking - I forgot my keys.....of course this is my room
mining - I have a contract to deliver ore
smithing - I can pound that out
stone carving - Mount Rushmore...watch out
stone masonry - that wall looks a little used
tanning - i need some leather

Come visit our web site at

http://www.accursed-lands.com

You can try out the game through our telnet or java telnet connections. There is information on the various races, a timeline of events in the past and of course rules & guidelines for playing in the game.

Perhaps you would like to do some coding or building for the game. There is an online application form to fill out and this will begin the process to see if you have what it takes to be a creator in the Accursed Lands.

Come and check out the web site, create a character and roam around in the land for a while. Get your feet wet and perhaps this is the MUD that you've been dreaming of playing.

Hope to see you in the game.

> info
You are Grendal.
You are standing here ready to jog.
You feel full and you feel quenched.
You are well rested.
You are slightly encumbered.  

>inventory
You are wearing a grass hat on your head, a dark pearl choker around your neck, a canvas backpack on your back, a long flowing velvet robe on your body, a leather moneybag strapped around your waist.

Health:
body: in perfect health.
head: in perfect health.
left arm: in perfect health.
left leg: in perfect health.
right arm: in perfect health.
right leg: in perfect health.

> look pack
You examine a canvas backpack.
A canvas backpack with finely tooled leather straps and an opened leather cover.  It seems to be moderately used.  It is being worn on your back.   It contains: iron knife, a couple rabbit pelts, wooden torch, a couple tan roots, a few handfuls of dried grass, crude lock pick and a hardened steel file.


Everything in the game is just as you would have it in real life.

My items are in my pack. My pack is worn on my back.
My pack will only hold so many items.

> get file from pack
You reach to a canvas backpack.
You take a hardened steel file.

> weigh file
You heft a hardened steel file.
You estimate that it weighs somewhere close to 4 eggs and 4 stones.

> weigh pack
You estimate that it weighs somewhere close to 87 eggs and 6 stones.

> put file in pack
You put a hardened steel file into a canvas backpack.


My health is not some amount of hit points. Each limb takes damage when hit. The limb can break or even be ripped off.
You don't fair to well in a fight with a broken leg.

My description includes everything I am wearing.
It can be very basics items or elaborate clothes of a king.

We don't have +25 vorpal weapons of death & destruction.
We have longswords, clubs, quarterstaves, slings, bows & arrows. and many other weapons of choice.

Our mud isn't about who can fight best or what magic spells you can obtain. It's about ROLEPLAY.

Taking your character and doing as he or she would do.

Talk to people. Interact with your environment. React realistically. If someone walks up to you and spits in your face, are you going to smile and say "hi" ?  Of course not.

Our mud has over 600 verbs that you can use in the game.

Here is a small list

ack           dim           hiss          prance        spin
activate      disagree      hit           pray          spit
adjust        disarm        hmm           preen         splutter
admire        disembark     hold          prepare       spring
afk           dislodge      holler        press         sprint
agree         dismount      holster       price         squat
ahem          display       hoot          proceed       squawk
ambush        doh           hop           prostrate     squeak
annoy         don           howl          protect       squeal
apologize     drag          hug           puke          squeek
applaud       draw          huggle        pull          squint
appraise      dream         hum           pull out      stab
approach      dress         idle          punch         stack
ask           drill         ignite        purchase      stagger
assail        drink         ignore        purr          stand
assault       drool         ingest        push          stare
assess        droop         inscribe      put           steal
attack        drop          insert        put away      steal from
babble        duck          inspect       put down      steer

We have a large world to interact in, so if you like to explore and discover new things, this could be the place for you.

Our creators are top notch and very helpfull.

Our playerbase is growing everyday.

Come give us a try and see if you can survive in the Accursed Lands.

This is a small example of some RP that you might find in the Accursed Lands.

The great warrior Braven was struck dead in battle.
I did what I could to restore his soul to his body.
Sometimes things don't always go as planned.

==============================

You jog to the east, dragging Braven.
|| >

A circular room, open to the sky

A stone altar stands in the center of the room.
==============================

You pulled in Braven.
|| > stop dragging
You stop dragging Braven.
Done.

|| > emote kneels by the altar
You kneel by the altar

|| > emote prays to the gods
You pray to the gods

|| > 'please hear my words
You say "Please hear my words."

|| > 'I have found the corpse of my dear friend
You say "I have found the corpse of my dear friend."

'please show mercy and let his soul rise again
You say "Please show mercy and let his soul rise again."

|| > get stone from bag
You reach to a snakeskin moneybag.
You take a transparent crystal.

|| > get scroll from bag
You reach to a snakeskin moneybag.
You take a parchment scroll.

|| > emote unfolds a parchement scroll and begins to chant the written words slowly
You unfold a parchement scroll and begin to chant the written words slowly

| > emote continues to chant
You continue to chant

| > emote finishes his chanting
You finish your chanting

| > put item in bag
You put a parchment scroll into a snakeskin moneybag.

| > prepare spell
You start concentrating on your spell.
| > Your preparations for the spell have been completed.

'let the light of his soul find it's way back into his body
You say "Let the light of his soul find it's way back into his body."

| > cast spell on Braven

You wave your right arm in the air.
| > You whisper quietly.
Your face tenses with concentration.
You shake.
You incant strange phrases.
You rub a transparent crystal.
Your face tenses with concentration.
You complete your spell and direct it at Braven.

Braven begins to glow.


Braven's body gradually turns to vapor and whisps into nothingness.

There so much more to say about the Accursed Lands, but the best way for you to truly understand is to come and try it out yourself.

Hope to see you in the game.
