How to Connect

Playing Achaea

You can play Achaea in a variety of ways, including both in-browser and downloadable methods. We recommend:

  • Nexus: Our official browser-based client works very well with the latest versions of all the browsers, with the exception of Internet Explorer versions 9 and earlier. This will give you the best and smoothest initial Achaea experience. Windows, Mac, Linux, Tablets. 
  • Mudlet: This is a third-party (free) downloadable client that is popular with players due to being highly-customisable. You'll use it to connect to, port 23 (you can also use port 2003 if you are blocked from using port 23 for whatever reason). Windows, Mac, Linux.
  • VIP MUD Client: This is a popular client for visually-impaired players. Free for 30 days, then $30 to buy. Windows only.

Playing on Mobile

There are a number of options to play on mobile, though playing on mobile can be challenging. It's more possible on tablets, and in both cases we recommend using Nexus We've also developed the IRE Android App but it will not see updates as often as Nexus will. 

Other options include Blowtorch (Android) and MudRammer (iOS).
