What is Aelisus?
Aelisus is a multi-user dungeon, or MUD. A MUD is a multi-player computer game that combines elements of role-playing games, hack and slash style computer games and social chat rooms. MUDs are text-driven, where players read descriptions of rooms, objects, events, other characters, and computer-controlled creatures or non-player characters (NPCs) in a virtual world.
Players interact with each other and the world by typing commands that resemble a natural language. Modern game-like MMORPGs, such as World of Warcraft, and social virtual worlds such as Second Life can have their origins traced back to the original MUDs, and, in fact, the MMORPG RuneScape originally started out as a text-based MUD before graphics were added.
How Old is Aelisus: Asunder?
Aelisus officially opened its gates on May 7th, 2021 after a year of beta. Its world is original, always-changing and exciting. It is a roleplaying enforced, player killing encouraged MUD. This means that if it is within your character's roleplay, you are within your right to kill another player. Aelisus has applied a balancing mechanic to all items within it to make sure that there are always many viable options to dress your character. You can gain extensive, hard-earned loot for your efforts, be that from the world of Aelisus, or off the backs of others who have gathered their own items. The world is massive, with over 10,000 unique rooms for you to explore. A massive variety of race and class combinations allows Aelisus endless replayability for as long as your creativity flows.
