    I was just wondering if anyone would like to play a MUD set in the world of ogrewars...I certainly would have fun making it, and (until I find somewhere to host it) I could host it on my computer for a while...(not 24/7, I'd probably post when I turned it on and off...)

    You could make a MUD of Ogre Wars? If so, we could probably host it somewhere. Besides, we own OgreWars.com:). We thought about making it into a full online game at some point.

    Not the ogrewars game itself, but of a game in the same world of ogrewars...
    and hosting would be awesome, but who are you hosting through? I'd have to be able to get shell access to it to install the MUD server.

    For now I'm going to research servers and such...and learn MUDCode...Mushes are all I have run before.

    I'm going to put it on my computer for now to work on it, and once I find hosting, I'll move it. I think there are a few free hosters, I'll take a look at those.

    I'm thinking about using Coffee MUD, as it's documented well, and it should have the capabilities to do everything with the four groups as classes...(big beasts and such).

    Also, if anyone reading this keeps there computer on the majority of the day, and is willing to run a small program in the background, you could probably be a host. You can PM me about it if you want.

    I'm starting up the Vanilla CoffeeMUD on my laptop right now...just to see h.ow it works..


    you can try it yourself at coffeemud.sourcefourge.net

    EDIT: GAH! It's taking forever to unpack...its going at 194 Bytes/Sec

    Anyway, here's my plan...I'm going to make all Playable Characters one of four races, each race one of the clans in conquest. (Big Beasts, Whompers, etc.), I'll add more later, gtg.

    The OgreWars mud has been created...I will probably give you the address for it once I at least have all the races be Ogre, and the classes set to our Big Beasts, Goldteeth, Whompers, and that other one. :D

    Should Ogres have magic? There is a really extensive magic system it would be sad to waste... maybe only one of the four clans?
    Alright, here's what I am gonna do, I am gonna make each "clan" one of the Races, and then I'll have different classes such as fighteer, cleric, mage and such. If anybody out there can please test connecting to it, please post here and I'll PM you my IP/Port.

    OK, it worked!
    I am working on learning how to edit the world...as soon as ogres are the only race I'll let the public connect.

    If anyone wishes to help mod it or host it, please contact me. Thank you!

    I plan on keeping a good enviroment in the world, and just because it is a MUD doesn't mean you can be rude to everyone. Prepare to be BAN'd spammers!

    Alright, ogrewars.pwnz.org currently redirects to my IP...at least until the 26th.

    The port is 5555, you can connect with any telnet client.

    You can make an account, but I shall reset it once I figure out how to kill the races that aren't ogres!

    Got it! Just testing, but I think I can make Ogres the only PCs now.

    EDIT: Yup I got it!

    Working on the Newbie Underground...it will end with you emerging into the world. I plan on making a few dungeons after that...and a town for each clan.

    Another user and I are talking about hosting right now...it depends if their router and ISP have the capabilities to run the server.

    Alright, I'm sending the files to the user who has agree'd to host it. Yay!
    I plan on testing it a little bit before telling you people the new address.

    SOME PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED.
    We are working on it...

    I could have offered hosting it, but I have limited bandwidth as it is :(

    I'm not a big fan of MUD's myself, but I think it's cool you're making one. I wish you the best of luck quinn.

    Thanks Shugo! I'm not used to MUD scripting, and I'm hosting it myself for limited times on my laptop. I'm using the server to test out scripting, and I'm going to use their default races and such until I am skilled enough to create factions and such for the clans.

    I found out that I can make areas conquerable, so we could have the clans fighting over land, which would be cool.

    I'm not used to mud scripting either... I find it is easier tinkering with your own code, than with someone else's code...

    Yeah, it's kinda weird...MUSH scripting is way better. But hey, MUSH's are impossible to do good battle in, they just aren't built for it.
