This is now: As time went by and evil ravaged the surface, the climate started to change.The surface started to become a dark and desolate place, haunted by cold winds. Evil slowly retreated and eventually light came back to the kingdom. But the climate never changed back and the kingdom will never be the same again. With the return of light man began to open their well-covered hatches from below and take a glimpse of the outside world. Seeing little danger, young and brave adventurers soon started to explore the surroundings. You are one of those adventurers and it is your task to give Bards of the future something to sing heroic songs about around campfires once again. Soon you will be able to join an entirely new guild!

Once upon a time there was a luxuriant world with many cities and the people were happy. This world was ruled by a generous king who was kind to all of his people. But amidst the dark corridors of the king's castle evil lurked. The king's magician had vicious plans to take over and rule with darkness at his side.. he opened a portal to the under world. An army of dark minions swirled thrue the portal and into the peaceful kingdom. But the dark forces were treacherous and betrayed the magician. The dark forces swiftly overthrew the kingdom, many people were killed and tortured.

IceWind is first of all a very friendly place. Players and wizards/arches are extremely helpful and friendly, so as a newbie all you have to do is ask, and you can be sure they will help you out with what ever you want/need to know. Also, the world of IceWind is in constant growth, new areas and kingdoms are implemented very often, and so you always discover something new. Icewind is a fun place to explore, you always stumble over a new secret or two when exploring somewhere new and exciting! Doing quests is a great way to start out your adventuring career, both for knowledge of the mud's areas, to experience(gaining levels), figuring out where the different guilds(clans) are located, and earning money. Later on, as you advance your levels and become more experienced, you can start to do more advanced and more difficult quests. Slay more and more fearsome creatures, and you get cooler and cooler equipment. ;-) Also, when you pass level 20, and you have gathered up enough quest points, then you may become a wizard(if you choose to) in the world of IceWind, to help build and expand our great world. You will be granted a tower of your own, where you start out building/creating your own monsters, areas, equipment, quests or even guilds/clans. Any wizard will tell you, that creating your own areas, and watching mortals go out exploring them/dying, is extremely fun and rewarding. At the moment, there are four guilds(clans) in play: -The Warmongers, a clan of bloodthirsty warriors with great attacking skills. -The Shadowmages, a guild of powerful mages of the night, with a _lot_ of different spells and skills, both in attacking, exploring(teleporting), healing, and defense. They are quite nasty at mind, and do enjoy killing those goodie-two-shoes creatures. ;-) -The Ring of Steel, a guild of powerful knights and warriors, that mainly focus their defensive powers. They are noble players, that seek to vanquish all evil! -The Lemurian guild, a guild teaches... Read More

Pretty nice place. Both the imms and morts are friendly to newbies. Definitely no overcrowding at this time but that may change as people try it out and realise how nice it is. There's plenty of hack-n-slash but if you like exploring, thinking, and finding new stuff you'll enjoy it too. I just started there a couple days ago but think I'll be sticking around for a while.

Icewind mud is the friendliest mud around! It may not be huge, or have a ton of players at all times, but the atmosphere is positive and helpful!

This MUD rocks, though it has a low end of people at the moment, due to lack of people knowing about it. Go play it today!
