Looking for a huge world to explore? Tired of clumsy pay-for-play
games disguised as "pay-for-perks"? Bored of enforced role-playing
and looking for a place where you can indulge in wanton slaughter or
clever banter with good company? You've come to the right place!

Ancient Anguish is a vast, free, and incredibly engaging MUD that
has since 1992 retained a friendly and loyal playerbase. The world
is constantly expanding, adding new challenges, fun new highly
developed classes, and more ways to pass the time than you can swing
a hobbit at. Home to an average of 40 players at a time - any time
of the day or night - you're never hurting for a partner in
genocide, a room full of poker buddies or just someone to chat with.

Ancient Anguish received the prestigious MudConnector "Mud of the
Month" award in November 1995.


One of the things that really sets Ancient Anguish apart is its
commitment to both balance and diversity. Each race, class and guild
is genuinely unique, every combination providing the player with a
different set of strategies and perspective of the world. While the
necromancers raise one of their many powerful undead minions to
annihilate anything that stands in their way, rangers prefer to
raise a wolf from a pup as a lifelong companion that will eventually
grow to enormous proportions! There's no end to the amount of
strategies you can use to enjoy the game, and you'll play for years
trying all of them out.


But our engaging gameplay is only the beginning. Ancient Anguish
is an open ended story, a fantasy novel come to life, a perfect
place to escape from reality. An adventurer weary of hack and slash
can relax in a posh restaurant, fish for giant squids in the ocean,
engage in a game of trivia, plant and nurture unique herbs, woo
sultry exotic dancers in hidden desert cities or compete in an elf
tossing contest. The possibilities are endless! Ancient Anguish is
not just a mindless treadmill to run on, it is a magical world
waiting to be explored.


So if you're looking for a place to cure your bloodlust, a
wonderful and beautifully described place to explore, or just a
friendly game of chess, AA is the place for you. Join us at
anguish.org on port 2222!
