Get Started


git clone git://
cd ranviermud
npm install

If you would like to use the latest, but perhaps not stable, features: before npm install execute git checkout staging

Running the server

sudo ./ranvier

If you do not have sudo privileges or do not wish to run as sudo you should configure Ranvier to run on a port > 1024. See Server Config


In another terminal execute telnet localhost 23 or use your favorite MUD client with hostname localhost and port 23. (If you have customized the port, replace 23 with whatever port you have configured Ranvier to use)

By default Ranvier ships with an admin account with the username admin and password tester
