How you connect will depend on your computer. We are at or on port 6715.

You can use our web based client, or one of the variety of MUD clients available. Each person has their own preference. The list below is by no means exhaustive and there are quite a few others that we haven't listed.

MUD Clients known to work with 7DOF are (in order of popularity)

MUSHClient: Available for PC as freeware from

zMUD: Available for PC from however this is no longer maintained – the authors have moved on to cMUD. 30 day free trial, but thereafter you'll need a licence.

GMUD: This is an older client that is not maintained for windows. Functionality is quite limited, It can be downloaded from

Tinyfugue: This is not a client for the novice user and has quite a steep learning curve. However it is available for both PC and Mac at

Atlantis: Available for Mac, this has some quite advanced features and is available for download from

TinTin++: A free client for Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. The ubiquitous Moses uses it. It can be found at

Android: Lensdroid, Blowtorch, and Mukluk all work with Android, although using an onscreen keyboard does limit the mud's text output area.

Telnet: You can also use the telnet program supplied with Windows. Try the following:
Click on your start menu
Select Run
Type into the box: telnet 6715
The telnet clients are not very good. For example, some users find that they cannot see what they type when playing, even though the commands are being followed.
Enable local echo in your telnet program by clicking on Edit, Preferences, Enable local echo.
UNIX/Linux: On a console or in an xterm window simply type: telnet 6715

There are also many clients available. Nalal and Major use Sclient under Linux. As a new convert to Linux, Jaakan did manage to install SClient and use it - if you've got a modicum of ability with the command line interface, you'll be fine - It looks and feels very similar to GMUD under windows and has a lot of options. If you're using Ubuntu, providing that you've got the Universe and Multiverse repositories enabled, you should be able to find Papaya, which (for Jaakan) installed flawlessly using synaptic package manager, and looks good too. Not as much in the way of options, though.
