Connecting to Achaea

The easiest way to play Achaea is using our official client - called Nexus (Windows, Linux, OSX, Tablets)- that runs in any modern browser that isn't Internet Explorer. Click on the 'Play Now' menu item above, and it will automatically open Nexus and let you create a character or play the game. 

If you need help with Nexus, you can ask in-game or find documentation here:

There are a number of alternative clients available online, designed for users at all levels of experience. The two we recommend besides Nexus for PCs/laptops are:

  • Mudlet (Windows, Linux, OSX). Free.
  • VIP Client. This is a popular choice for visually-impaired players. Free for 30 days, then $30.
For tablets, we recommend using Nexus.
For mobile, you have some options:
  • Host: (or use IP:
  • Port: 23 or, if that's blocked, 2003

You may also wish to browse the Client Help section of our player forums for further assistance in using the above clients with Achaea.
