Program Based Clients

While the above website will generally work for game play, there are other ways to play. There are programs made specifically for playing MUDs, called MUD Clients.

These clients have special features such as saving connecting information, macros, triggers, logging (useful for keeping a history of your sessions), sounds and so on.

There are several popular ones out there, including ZMud. ZMud can be downloaded at the following site: www.zuggsoft.com.

Regardless of what client you end up using, the connection information will have to be put in like above with the web client. Host Name: game.tempestseason.com and port 8875. IP: 167.88.120.135

Upon connecting to the game from these MUD Clients, you should see this on your screen(which is similar to the one above):
