Fifteen Years of Iron Realms
Can you believe that the first Iron Realms game, Achaea, opened its doors fifteen years ago? Fifteen years ago our beloved little CEO, Matt Mihaly, started his very first little MUD game. It's amazing how far our little game company has come. Did you know that in the early days you could not even cure paralysis? Now we have five full time, online games and over a dozen full time employees. IRE has grown to have five of the top MUD games in the world! I would wager many of our players were not even BORN fifteen years ago! How is that for crazy?
Achaea is throwing a proper party to celebrate its fifteenth birthday this month, so be sure to login and enjoy the celebrations!

With the recent invasion of the Nazedha, Aetolia debuted the first instance of a new breed of challenging NPC opponents, able to react intelligently and cure afflictions in much the same way as player characters. Many intricate and exciting PvE events are sure to feature refined iterations of this new feature! Class revamps also continue after the recent release of the Shamans guild, with major changes to the Teradrim class under review to help make the class more enjoyable for all players to use.
This month Imperian is running a massive event with undead, orcs, goblins, trolls, gorgons, hydras, wraiths, ogres, and tons of incredible new creatures.
