Let's get you
First things first, our address is:
Some applications require a port
number and sometimes in a different area. If so, the correct port number is
23. Many applications assume this as a default so you do not always need to
specify it, for example Windows Telnet doesn't need it.
You connect to Ele Mud via something called Telnet.
The simplistic version of events is that Ele is an online text based game, requiring
a net connection. Telnet links your machine with Ele, and allows you to send
commands from your machine, and Ele responds. Easy eh? You need to put the time
Choose your tools...
With your net connection running, you have some telnet choices available to
you. Ele is in colour, so you'll ideally need something which supports colour.
Telnet applications come in many forms, but we've got this to offer.. Download
one of these.
As well as the traditional Java applets we can now offer a flash option!
You can get to our flash client here.
If you just want to get playing you can do so from this very
browser window right now by going here.
This will work on most modern browsers, but if you have trouble
try this one.
You probably have a something that will allow you to connect
to telnet programes free with your chosen operating system.

line. Click HERE to launch
yourself a telnet window and get cracking immediately.

Let us begin
Feel free to have a look
round first, we have a Guest character
set up for this purpose. You can log in as Guest and explore
the town of Drakenwood, chat to other players and generally
get a feel for the place so that you can be sure you choose
the right name and guild when you start your new character.
But if you've got the character
in your head and you know what name you wish to use, then it's time to meet
new people, head out on quests and make a difference to your chosen guild..
At this point you may well have
