It isn’t a secret that CoM is inactive right now.  Most of that is due to the fact that the staff all went their ways and got lives.  I can’t speak for my peers, but real life stuff is what’s kept me from here.  In the meantime, I’m still (somewhat) maintaining the server and coming by every few weeks to fix what needs fixing.

A few of you have reached out to me about trying to breathe life into the MUD again.  While I welcome your efforts, I personally don’t have the time to be a part of the MUD as I was years ago.  If you have a crew and a plan to make it work, feel free to shoot me an e-mail and we may be able to come to an agreement.


Lythren have been revamped in terms of skills, while most of the background remains the same.  Of note, they no longer have blindness to daytime but suffer their curse in other ways.  They have also gained the ADAPTABILITY skill which allows them to make limited use of all weapons except bow.

Re: ** Notices Posted by the Serian Peacekeepers **
Citizens of Seria:

Reports indicate that evidence of increasing necromantic power have been seen around the fallen city of Frelugnya to the east. Merchants traveling the Eastern Road report sightings of undead humanoids and otherworldly screeches and howls. Please exercise extreme caution if you travel that way.

* Centered at the bottom of the notice is a seated, three-headed hound within a ring of eight-pointed gold stars wearing a laurel on its middle head. *

OOC: Frelugnya has been updated into a medium/hard area. All previously aggressive creatures remain aggressive in their nooks and crannies, and the witches have become a bit more powerful. All the items have been upgraded to be appropriate for standard level 50 characters, and all the masking items have had their prices dropped! Please report any errors you find in this area. For the next 2 weeks, any deaths here will be restored if I’m around to facilitate bug testing.



My schedule is changing for the month of July, so I would like to announce something that I will call “Happy Hour Wednesdays.” What this means is that if you die on Wednesdays, you will get a free resurrection without stat loss or weakness.  This will also be done via the life skill, which will bump your total PC raises and make you eligible for the safe raise system later on.  You will still be responsible for recovering your HP/mana/move and your equipment.

As a reminder, any equipment dropped in the game and not yet retrieved can always be picked up prior to game reboots. If you’re concerned that I don’t know about your items, send me a mudmail or email to keep an eye on it.

Hope to see you all gathering more parties! This is also great for helping me to test new areas for bugs.
