If there is any one constant to Ancient Anguish, it is passion.
Most surviving text games are either churned out by paid coders or
painstakingly toiled on by a group of overly-dedicated people who have

As a new player, Ancient Anguish can be almost daunting in its vast
and immersive expanse. Though Ancient Anguish is not a strict
roleplaying mud by any means, tight Balance, World, and QC standards
set it apart from any other. While a few of the oldest areas still
exist, great care can be seen from the moment players step from the
Ancient Inn into the world of Anguish. All Immortals are players who
proved their knowledge of the world of Anguish before helping to
extend its story.
Anguish is not a world based on a myriad of races and classes, but
rather a handful of classics given robust development. The game-play
is geared toward intricacies and depth rather than simple pellet
rewards. While certainly one can run through in the hack-and-slash
style, and many do, it is difficult even then to miss the vast variety
of strategies and opportunities.
For even the most thorough explorers, it is virtually impossible to
do everything available. With an enormous number of rooms and rich
description, even after years of gameplay there is always something
new to discover.
