Alter Aeon has been around for awhile, and I have played on it for a
It is a multi classing mud, which allows the player
to level in mage, thief, warrior or cleric in any combination they
chose (new classes coming soon!). There are a huge array of skills

The creator of the game, Dentin, is very active and is constantly
weeding out bugs, putting in new content, and shaping the game into
what I believe is one of the best muds around. Recently Dentin has
created a custom game client which is very useful and displays the
mud very well. It is a completely free download. You can find the
client and tons more information about the game at www.xirr.com
Come give it a try! It takes just a few seconds to create a
character, and of course Alter Aeon is free to play!
