What is Alter Aeon?
Alter Aeon is a text-based MMO, or a graphical MUD
As a text based game, Alter Aeon differs from most other online games in one very
significant way: most actions are done using typed commands instead of using the
It is an on-line game where people from all over the world
can play together and interact in a huge virtual world. In a lot of ways, this is
similar to other online games such as Ultima Online and World of Warcraft.
Lack of graphics is in some ways an advantage. Rather than focus on creating skins for
every object, monster, and place in the game, MUDs focus on creating an outstanding game.
Alter Aeon has a huge world, countless quests and other things to do, for all types of
players at all skill levels. Some people have been playing Alter Aeon for over ten years!
When you start in the world of Alter Aeon, you must create a new character for you to guide
through the world on your adventures. Your character need not be anything like you, and it is
even common for females in real life to play male characters or the other way around. There are
several ways you can build up a story around your character, such as its history, personality,
appearance and skills, but you need not do this to play the game.

improve your character in many ways - from becoming stronger, to learning spellcasting arts or
worshipping one of the many deities in the game. Over time, your character will be capable of
exploring farther and farther from the main town of Ralnoth, and by grouping with others you
may even glance at the things that lay ahead of you.
