If you are looking for a way to connect as Guest character to see if you might like to play on the MUSH, we recommend using our web-based client. The client can be loaded in any modern browser and allows you to either make a Visitor account (using Register) or connect as a Guest with the Guest button.
The web-based interface can be used for playing the game as well, but you may want a stand-alone client to have access to more features. The client is a piece of software that you download and install on your computer. Once you give it the address to the MUSH, it connects you to the MUSH server itself. You can think of the client as a web browser and the MUSH as a webpage. There are many different clients out there with different features, just as there are many different web browsers with different features, but they can all be used to connect to the MUSH. Below are some examples of clients that we recommend:
Once you have downloaded and installed the client of your choice, you should setup a new world and enter bod.westeros.org as the address and 3000 as the port. You should then be set to connect to the game, and you will find yourself at a login screen that will provide you with further information. If it is your first time connecting to the game, you should then type connect Guest Guest to connect to one of the Guest characters.
