Crossfire is a multiplayer graphical arcade and adventure game made for the X environment.

It has certain flavours from other games, especially Gauntlet (TM) and Nethack/Moria.

Any number of players can move around in their own window, finding and using items and battle monsters. They can choose to cooperate or compete in the same 'world'.

To play the game you'll need to have access to a local or remote server.

KildClient is a MUD Client written with the GTK+ windowing toolkit. It supports many common features of other clients, such as triggers, gags, aliases, macros, timers, and much more. But its main feature is the built-in Perl interpreter. You can at any moment execute Perl statements and functions to do things much more powerful than simply sending text the mud. Perl statements can also be run, for example, as the action of a trigger, allowing you to do complex things. Some built-in functions of KildClient allow interaction with the world, such as sending commands to it.

KildClient's ANSI support is extensive: it supports not only the common 16 colors, but also support underlined text (singly and doubly), text in italics, text striked through, reverse video and "hidden" text. It also supports vt100's line-drawing characters, and xterm's escape sequences for a 256-color mode. All these features make KildClient one of the clients with the most features for displaying the mud output.

Kildclient supports the MCCP (Mud Client Compression Protocol) protocol, versions 1 and 2, to reduce the necessary bandwidth.

KildClient allows connection through SOCKS4/5 and HTTP proxy servers.

KildClient supports the GMCP (also called ATCP2) and MSDP protocols for out-of-band communications between server and client.

This package contains the main program. Install the kildclient-doc package to access the HTML manual.

A completely redesigned MUD (Multi User Dungeon) client that is easy to use and customise. Both power users and plain gamers alike will feel at home with Mudlet, without having to waste too much timer figuring out how to do something.

Mudlet is designed to be very fast and efficient right from the start. Its scripting engine is designed to handle thousands of lines under one second. The scripting framework uses Lua - a small, fast and efficient scripting language.

TinyFugue (also known as "Fugue" or "TF") is a line-based client designed for connecting to MUD servers (note: LP, Diku, and other servers which use prompts require "/lp on"; see /help prompts).

TinyFugue is larger than most MUD clients, but has many more features and is much more flexible. The goal is to provide the most functionality in a client that still maintains the user-friendliness of Tinytalk.

TinyFugue is a text-based, line-based client designed for connecting to most flavors of MU* servers (TinyMUSH, TinyMUX, LP, Diku, etc.) or any telnet-based chatserver. It includes support for 256-color terminals, MCCP versions 1 and 2, a powerful trigger and scripting language, and many other features. Encryption of communications with SSL/TLS is supported, but not validation of certificates. Unicode is not currently supported.

This package is the current development version of TinyFugue (major version 5). For the current stable version (major version 4), install the "tf" package instead.

This is the TinyMUX flavor of mud servers of the MUSH branch. It provides a number of robust features to enable players to extend the virtual world. This is done by building new rooms and objects, and utilizing its internal programming language, MUSHcode.

TinyMUX does not provide a superset of all the features available in other MUSH flavors, but those it does implement provide a stable and robust environment that performs as well or better than that of its peers.
