together and displayed for your viewing pleasure. Masses of
photos to rekindle memories of events that may have been a little
more blurry at the time! It's fully searchable too! Check it

The Winter mudmeet is to be held on 22nd November 2003 at Ye
Old Cock Tavern, Fleet Street in London. This is the last meet
of the year and is set to be a good one! We hope to see you
there. For more information visit the mudmeet

The recent 'msblast' virus that has been circulating on the
net unfortunately uses port 4444 for its nefarious purposes.
While this has no effect on Ele, some ISP's and universtities
may filter out traffic to and from port 4444 to help catch the
virus before it can do any damage. If you are having problems
connecting to Ele, this may be the reason why.
fix is simple. Ele is also available on the default telnet port
- 23. Thus if you are having problems, you can simply change
your client to use port 23 instead of 4444 and all should be
well. If you use 'telnet' to connect you can even leave off
the port number as it is the default.

Mud celebrated its 10th birthday on the 12th of April 2003 in
London. At 10 years old Elemud is still going from strength
to strength and continues to be on of the longest running and
most stable MUDs out there. This years birthday celebrations
complete with party balloons and banners saw an excellent turn
out, awards to be remembered and
Taking a very very
deep breath (or two) the Admin of Elephant Mud have accepted
the wiz applications of nine players to join the Immortal ranks
as Apprentices. We would like to welcome onboard the following
* Gremlingirl - A hardened Monk Councillor and a woman
with a mean eye for spelling mistakes. Her wizzing gives the
wizard team a chance for some payback :)
* Gatwyck - Well known for his sharp sense of humour
*cough* and affinity with nature. Gatwyck has served time on
Council and produced two issues of the Daily Trumpet.
* Lan - Logging in from across the pond, he has represented
the fighters on Council and has always been a keen and enthusiastic
* Boromir - A Fighter through
and through, Boromir is quietly considered and has spent time
on Council as well as running the player side of the Drakenwood
* Glyndwr - Returns from the mortal Realms to join the
Wizard Team once again. Clearly once bitten is not twice shy
in his case!
* Yautja - An old player, and recently Monk leader. He
now casts of his mortal coil to join the ranks of the wizards.
* Hood - Has been
around on ele in one way or another for many moons. As a Wizard
his coding skills will be put to good use.
* Handy - A role
player of skill. In her hay day she would strike fear into the
hearts of any adventurer of evil alignment.
* Kelda - Spent
time in many different guilds she has been on Council as both
a Monk and a Cleric and has been an active mortal for years.
All this fresh blood can only
be a good thing for Ele and we look forward to seeing what exciting
development these new team members can bring to the Mud. For
