Dawn of the Ages Tenth Anniversary

Greetings!

I wanted to let players old and new, as well as the general public, know that Dawn of the Ages celebrates its tenth anniversary today.

Dawn of the Ages is a pk/hack-n-slash mud with the look and feel of the ROM codebase. The game was written from scratch in Java, and enhanced over the years with Scheme (Lisp). While the playerbase has dwindled, Dawn itself has not, and the immortals (including the game's primary creator) continue to improve it.

Why April 1st? Back in 1998, the creator of ROM made a joke announcement that he had created a Java port of the ROM codebase. Little did he know at the time that four guys out of Germany had been doing exactly that, writing a ROM-like game in Java since 1996. They decided after the announcement to open their game the following year in honor of the joke.

While we aren't handing out gifts or free xp, feel free to drop by anytime. The immortals of Dawn of the Ages are looking forward to the next ten years!
