Darkness and Despair (DnD) is an old school MUD with a high fantasy
theme and a focus on exploration and adventure.

After being lost to the sands of time for several years, DnD is back
again from the dead with a vengeance. Whether you are here for the
nostalgia or just want to gear up and explore the ruins you will
find a large world filled with diverse areas and hidden secrets
to discover.

It is originally based on the Nightmare 3.2 mudlib and has 7 core
classes (cleric, druid, fighter, mage, monk, reaver, rogue) and
22 races.

There are 10 advanced professions (Anti-Paladin, Assassin,
Elementalist, Illusionist, Necromancer, Ninja, Psionicist,
Runemaster, Paladin, Cabalist) that are unlocked by questing.
