formatted text, clickable commands, and even images.

To enable MXP for your character in Achaea, type:

You may also have to enable MXP in your MUD client. Instructions for various
popular MUD clients that do not automatically enable MXP follow:

 CMUD v3.12 (Beta version)
 - Click on "Options" in the top toolbar, then click on "General".
 - Click on the "MXP" tab in the "Preferences" window that opens.
 - Click on the button "Force remote MXP" if it is not already enabled.

 MUSHclient v4.40
 - Click on "Game" in the top toolbar.
 - Mouse over to the "Configure" menu option.
 - Click on the "MXP / Pueblo" menu option.
 - Click on "Use MXP/Pueblo" drop-down menu and choose "Yes - always".
 - MUSHclient supports an outdated version of the MXP specification, and
   therefore does not allow for all of the features used by zMUD and CMUD.

 Nexus (IRE's Java Client)
 - MXP is compatible with our Nexus Client.

* Note to users of MudBot:

MudBot intercepts communications between Achaea and your MUD client. Therefore,
some features of the MXP specification cannot be negotiated between Achaea's
server and your client.
