Game Description: Ansalon is a Dragonlance MUD
(Multi User Dungeon, Text Based Role-Playing Game)

world, and interact with other players who are also playing at the
same time. Your character can be a Silvanesti Elf, a Neidar Dwarf, a
Human, a Minotaur, a fun-loving Kender, or any of a multitude of
Ansalon has been up and running since 1996. It is a stable,
well-developed world, with custom code and custom areas to explore.
Even over a decade later, we're making upgrades and changes on a
Ansalon is always looking for new players with new stories to tell and
new conflicts to incite. Speaking of stories, check out our stories
page!! Thousands of stories from 1999 through now! Read them by
author, updated as they post! www.AnsalonMUD.com/new/stories.php
Newbies are encouraged and with them in mind, Ansalon offers detailed maps
and lots of people willing to help out and give advice so that folks unused
to Ansalon _don't_ have to struggle through the often painful process of
learning a new MUD. Ansalon originally came from a Diku/Merc/Rom line so
those familiar with that style MUD will feel right at home. There is a
great 'USE' command for almost any object you find, give it a shot! Ask
questions on the Newbie channel (or OOC), get all of the free maps from the
school.. And READ that email we sent you, it does have some great
information on how to get started!
We fully encourage clans and other organizations. Perhaps you'd like
to join the Solamnic Knights?
Or join the Conclave of Mages?
Or maybe you want to take over the world in one of the wings of Takhisis'
No matter what your character wants to do, there's a clan that should suit
Unique Options: 5 coin system, full on insane fishing code!,
player owned shops that work 24/7, homes/personal areas available,
drinking anywhere that makes sense, corks & labels for potions,
fountains that gurgle and refill, nuances that make the game feel
real, much much more! See our changes page on the web by year at: http://www.ansalonmud.com/new/changes.php
Lol, there actually ARE walleye heh.
Just have to find the right place to fish and buy gear etc. I know that part isn't 'dragonlance' as far as the books didn't get into it, but I dig fishing so kind of went off on that aspect.
I think over 100 fish species, tons of variables, all sizes/lengths, feeding times, kind of nuts. But hey, it's fun and a way to make some cash in game heh.
Not sure what I can say about this game. I have played here, off and on, for about 8 years. Perhaps I am being a bit self serving here, but Ansalon has one of the greatest player bases around. The players are, generally speaking, very helpful if you have questions and most of them have been around long enough to know what they are talking about.
The game itself is constantly evolving and becoming deeper and more in depth. The builders are working on new things all the time, such as the new areas Skullcap and Plains of Dust.
The thing that always keeps me coming back though is the active roleplaying environment. The story board is constantly being added to by the players and the added effect of having stories from the game immediatly being added to the website is a wonderful touch.
Overall, this is a game that I woud encourage anyone to come give a try, new or old. It has something there for anyone.
