Alter Aeon

Alter Aeon is a multi-player online game, where players can play with or against each other in a huge world filled with challenges. It is free to play, and it isn't a crippled version designed to get you to buy something else later. All you need to start is a telnet client, a little bit of time, and a little bit of patience.

The game itself is a text adventure, and you must create and name a new character when you enter the game. You control your character by giving it commands, such as 'cast' to cast a spell, 'get' to pick up something, and 'look' to see what is around you. As your character advances and learns things, it will gain increased abilities, powers, and you may even make a few good friends.

There is a place for everyone here. The brave of heart can trek to the edges of world in search of fortune and fame, and sometimes bring home vast treasures. Those less confident in their abilities can remain in safer or more protected lands, or join up with others to reduce risk. Come test your mettle in the world of Alter Aeon!

Getting Connected

Anyone can connect to the game with regular telnet, allowing people from across the world to play regardless of the speed or type of their computer. If you want a specialized client that has more features, we try to keep current a short list in our 'How To Connect section.

Microsoft Windows users - we have a custom client you can use to connect to the game right from your desktop! Just click on this link (AlterAeonLauncher.exe) to download it. Click on 'save to desktop' to give it an icon. The file should only take a few seconds to download.

The custom client is based on the popular PuTTY client. For PuTTY information and source code, see the PuTTY Home Page. PuTTY is an excellent telnet/ssh client that is freely available. Our version neither adds nor removes features, and only changes a handful of default settings.

Banished Lands Page

The web page of our sister mud, Banished Lands. Banished uses an older and more stable version of DentinMud, v1.02+, and is a year younger than Alter Aeon. With similar features and game play between the two, players on one mud may also find the other enjoyable.
