Ancient Anguish is a LP mud, probably one of the internets largest and most popular. It has been around since '92 when it was opened to the public, making it also one of the longest standing LP muds around. Ancient Anguish has a very rich environment, with a friendly (and abit no so friendly) player base. It also has a very developed immortal (wizard) ranking. With six different wizard departments, driver, education, law, world, balance and quality control to ensure a smooth running of the game.
On Ancient Anguish there are seven classes. The fighters, clerics, rogues, necromancers, mages, paladins and rangers to give a wide variety of playing styles. There are also seven player guilds, the Scythe Clan, Monks of Antana, Knights of Drin, Realm of the Black Bear, The Courts of Chaos, The Eldar, and The Society of the Raven. Each bringing together players of the same classes/races for a more enjoyable mud experience.
The immense quality control department ensure the quality of the new areas (which very regularly get added to the world).While world make sure all new areas fit into the timeline and overall theme of the game. With balance doing its best to keep the monsters, and player classes on the same level. Ancient Anguish also has a large education department, to teach new wizards the ways of code, which makes wizzing much easier (even for those with no knowledge of code).
