Dart was created by Alluthia
...Maybe this word is forbidden here. If it is, I'm sorry, I didn't know. I recently read that AL is derived from this. I was wondering if someone could tell me how Dart is different from AL, so that I don't have to waste time finding out for myself.

You need a "paid" email address to play Dartmud. If your ISP didn't give you one, you have to bum one off a friend. Or find an AOL user who doesn't want theirs.


You can use any old email to play AL.

Whoa. I remember playing dartmud long long time ago. But ... whoa, it's absolutely different then Accursed. I'm suprised they're related somehow.

From what I understand, long long long ago DartMUD had a test MUD that they used to test a new combat style. This was the beginning of AL. For some reason, certain Creators of DartMUD decided to break off and form Accursed Lands. There's no hard feelings between AL or Dart, and some Creators here still have Creator friends over there. I've only played DartMUD briefly, but it was a -lot- different than AL.

Really the only similarities I really saw were that they both used the LPC codebase, but then again I really only played for 20 min tops. And their bramen are elephants. :P

But remember that AL was made about 10 years ago. Both AL and Dart have had plenty of time to evolve individually so it makes sense that they've become completely different games.

DartMUD's one of the best free MUDs around.

AL's Wikipedia entry has a paragraph that summarizes the relationship between AL and DartMUD.
