Greetings... The Hyborian Lands (THL) MUD is a new mud that officially
opened Thanksgiving 2003 as a non-beta playable mud. Over 2 years in the
making, and running on a SMAUG codebase, we've managed to make it our own
by creating a realistic simulation of the lands and races imagined by
sword and sorcery master, and creator of Conan, Robert E. Howard.

Since 2003 we have continued to develop and build the game, despite the
fact that we haven't really advertised alot for players. Now we have
reached a point in development where we will be aggressively advertising
for a playerbase. Please don't be discouraged by the lack of players.
The game is fairly huge now, with tons of secrets, suprises, danger and
adventure for even the hardened Mudder! Ancient tombs, reeking sewers,
vast plains, dusty forgotten crypts in the mountains, and more, are all
waiting to be explored by the first adventurers in this new THL!
