Banished Lands is based on DentinMud code, which plays much like
Diku. Banished Lands was started as an off shoot of Alter Aeon sometime in the hazy year of 1995.
Much like most muds Banished began life with a medevil D&D type theme,
but then Wyvren our creator got bored and began to mix more sci-fi and
fantasy into the game. Her eventual goal is to have a Babylon 5 meets
H.P. Lovecraft inspired world of horror and delight.
Banished Lands, uses a custom source code for the mud. (in other words no
other mud runs quite like it). Banished operates running on DentinMud 2.04,
taking updates from the originator of the code (Dentin) and as well as additions
of our own.

We could all use a little help every-now and then. So here we have some
useful how-to's, glossaries, FAQs, and free telnet and mud clients.
Gods or Immortals are the ladies and fellows that donate much of their time to
keeping the mud functional. They add new features to the mud, build areas for
players to explore, and keep the mud running smoothly. Here are a few words about
the people running the show, with links to their welcome pages, and email contacts.
Players, sometimes called mortals, are the reason it all happens. Many of our
players have been around for 3 years now! Here is a rather miscilanious collection
of information, and links to a few of our player's home pages. To add your's to the
list just email the MUD ADMIN with the URL.
A list of our current areas, a little sneak preview of areas coming up, and with
any luck a few stories and fables about some of the more mysterious places to go.
Summary information about each of the offical clans of Banished Lands. In some
cases links to clan web pages, information on elders of clans, and contacts.
A short collection of rules for gods, and players. Also includes the "How do I become a
God?" factoid, and definitions of various disiplinary actions.
