Welcome to ElvenMUD.. Here is what's new in our world..
27 Nov 2005 Some bugs have been fixed where files were not getting closed
when the MUD was reset or rebooted.
26 Nov 2005 The AWAY command has been updated slightly so that if you're
already away and type AWAY and supply a message, it updates your
away message rather marking you as returned.
07 Mar 2004 Some major behind the scenes changes have taken place. All
the file locations have been tidied up and some of the
configuration moved from compile time C header files to run-
time changable text files. This should make future development
easier especially as the MUD has now finally been moved into
30 Sep 2003 A sword in the realm will now detect dragons! Can you find it?
Also some minor bugs have been fixed so you can no longer play
at being Jesus and leave footprints on water. Some code has
been added to hopefully help track down a slight problem with
the corpse code. Please let us know if you spot anything
strange or unusual happening.
29 Dec 2003 The server has been converted from RedHat 7.2 to Debian Stable.
04 Jan 2003 Well the holidays are over and we at ElvenMUD would like to wish
you all a very Happy New Year. We have been very busy working
on lots of "behind the scenes" things and we hope to start
bringing you new and exciting things soon. A big thank you to
WooHoo and Moosechees who have been helping Ellyll with his
crazy plans! (and forgiving of his very stupid mistake)
25 Dec 2002 As a Christmas present to all our players you will gain twice the
score when fighting mobiles from the 25th of December to the 1st
We have also implemented autoresets so that the MUD will reset
itself if all of the following are true:
- it has been 3 hours since the last reset
- it has been 3 hours since the last kill
- there are no mortals logged on
We have also changed the names of the Powers' levels as follows:
Founder => Eru
God => Ainur
Avatar => Valar
DemiGod => Maiar
ArchWizard => Eldar
The colours have changed slightly on some of the communications
channels and support for underlines has been added. You can
turn this on and off with the NOULINE command and use it
yourself with the &_ code (use &* to turn it off again).
There have also been many other behind the scenes changes to
enable future developments. If you come across any problems
please report them using the BUG command. Thank you, and Merry
Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at ElvenMUD.
02 Sep 2002 We're back! Sorry about the unexpected downtime, we lost our
hosting for a while, however we're now back on Ellyll's server.
One problem though is that we lost a few days data as we had to
restore to the 22nd of August. If this is causes any problems
please talk to Ellyll.
17 Aug 2002 The SENDNOTHING command has been added. This should help
if you have problems with your ISP dropping your connection if
you're idle for a short time. See HELP SENDNOTHING for more
26 Mar 2002 The POGO action has been added.
11 Mar 2002 Well, it took longer than we expected, but we finally got
Genesis to take our damn money, and we're back up! (and
looking for a new server, probably)
