The Official Windows Client of MUD/BL
WizTerm is the Official MUD Client of MUD/British
Legends, the original text-based multi-user dungeon. Developed especially
for MUD/British Legends, WizTerm offers players many advantages over plain
telnet or generic MUD clients.
There are currently three "incarnations" of this program:

Why use WizTerm?
While commerical clients do a decent job on a variety of MUDs, these client must
necessarily adapt themselves to the programming standardly used on hundreds of
MUDs instead of the specialized code in MUD/British Legends, the original MUD.
WizTerm is written expressly for MUD/British Legends and is supported by a close
tie between Game Admin and Sirsloth so that the features of WizTerm continue to
function well within the MUD/British Legends special environment.
WizTerm, originally written in 1993 for MUD/British Legends when it resided on
Compuserve, is extremely popular with its players, including wizards and witches.
Since 1993, WizTerm has been rewritten from its original DOS form to a Windows-compatible
environment. Wizterm will run under most versions of Windows, including Win95,
Win98, WinNT, WinME and Win2K.
WizTerm will not make you a better player, but it will make your playing
experience more convenient and enjoyable. Please try the Official Client of MUD/British-Legends
