A client is software that connects to Achaea to let you play it. It can be either browser-based, downloadable, or a mobile app.

The best options to play Achaea with are:

 * The Nexus client, which is our official client. It runs in a browser and will
   work on all PCs/laptops (Windows, Macs, Linux), as well as tablets. It even
   runs on mobile, though not with full functionality.
   You can access Nexus at
   HELP NEXUS will tell you more.

 * The Mudlet client, which is a third-party downloadable client for PCs.
   You can find Mudlet at 
   To connect you'll need to tell it to connect to, and either port
   23 or 2003. (Both work.)

   Mudlet allows for custom GUIs to be created. One of our favourites was made
   by Zulah. All instructions and links for it can be found at:

 * A mobile client for Android phones (see HELP ANDROID)

 * If you're visually-impaired and using a screenreader, we recommend
   checking out which has a fully-accessible
   MUD client for free.

There are many other third-party clients (some free, some require purchase) that can be run. Some of these are listed on our website:
