Having no issues with the forum on my end

Connecting to the game is still too laggy to actually bring up the login screen from my laptop's client though.
I trained up double-edged bananas because the uber-plantain of doom I scored from the beehive quest was the best weapon in the game. Now it's being treated like a bug and they have gimped its damage! That's not fair! My character is ruined!

It's definitely not the client, no. One thing I've noticed: My connection rate with putty is about 50/50. When something works, the login screen appears normally. When the connection is doomed, the login screen appears without the colon at the very end.

Mask is looking into the issue.

I, too, have been having issues. Haven't been able to log on for almost a week, I just thought it was my awful internet at Work, but it appears that I'm not the only one.

Also, TMC client seems another good option for the moment, while we wait our clients to become functional again: http://www.mudconnect.com/fmud/

It highlights much less than MUDportal and allows a decent amount of customization, despite no vt100 and some text butchering.

Yeah, Ailyn and co. will be away while it is down. Just not feeling like playing on my phone for any amount of heavy RP or combat. If you do need Ailyn though, shoot me a PM here and I will hop on for faith related matters or other important topics. :)

I was able to connect this morning with zMUD. Thanks, Mask.
