Sirsloth's WizTerm
The Official Windows Client of MUD/BL

Welcome to the Home of WizTerm!

WizTerm is the Official MUD Client of MUD/British Legends, the original text-based multi-user dungeon. Developed especially for MUD/British Legends, WizTerm offers players many advantages over plain telnet or generic MUD clients.

There are currently three "incarnations" of this program:
  1. The old DOS version, WizTerm.EXE, is a 16-bit DOS executable that runs over the serial port and a modem connection.
  2. WizTerm32 is a modern, full-blown 32-bit Windows Telnet game client with many bells and whistles (see below). Check out this screen shot!
  3. JWizTerm is a Java implementation of WizTerm which can be run right out of most Java-capable browsers. It's currently in beta testing and still catching up to the feature richness of WizTerm32.
I have declared all WizTerm versions as Open Source. You are welcome to look at, download and even change the source code.

MUD/British Legends-specific advangtages of WizTerm:
(some of these features are not yet available in JWizTerm)

Why use WizTerm?

While commerical clients do a decent job on a variety of MUDs, these client must necessarily adapt themselves to the programming standardly used on hundreds of MUDs instead of the specialized code in MUD/British Legends, the original MUD.

WizTerm is written expressly for MUD/British Legends and is supported by a close tie between Game Admin and Sirsloth so that the features of WizTerm continue to function well within the MUD/British Legends special environment.
