Background


MUCKs, like MUDs, MUSHes, MOOs, MUXen, and the like, are text-based virtual environments. These communities online host a broad range of interpersonal interaction, from chit-chat to roleplay. Within a MUCK, one can assume a new identity, or attempt to translate one's RLself (Real Life self) into virtual terms. MUCKs are excellent places to explore, as each is unique, created by its administrators and citizen-builders.

DelusionsMUCK started spinning on Monday, August 8, 1994, shortly before the well-known QwestMUCK ceased to exist. What was to become a haven for people after Qwest shortly turned into a full-featured MUCK, and is now serving around 500 citizens.


Theme


DelusionsMUCK is a themed world, which means that everything built should follow the genres of Nature / Medieval / Fantasy. It consists of four elemental main worlds and a fifth one holding them all together. The different worlds within Delusions and features such as the rapid travel system (go down from the Elemental Nexus to access it), pathfinder magic (use the magic word pf), and mapping (use map to see if there is a map of the area you are in) make it an orderly universe which is easy and to explore, with something for everyone! Residents can learn about and study the various magics available by looking at the lists of globals or locals.

ANSI/Color System
This enables your Delusions to be in color. Delusions's ANSI-system uses Interpreted ANSI, an inserver ANSI-parser, that translates only a limited set of ANSI-codes. That way people cannot spoof others with blinking text or dangerous ANSI-commands which can be done in systems using Direct ANSI.
