I have been playing Shadowdale since 1993 with a number of characters. My main character is known as Stibbons and he seems to have survived everything... even death. During my stay I've met a lot of people and lots of friends. If you'd like to know what I'm up to at the moment check out my Shadowdale Diary (last changed on 16th January 2012).

Shadowdale has been around a long time. It moved to version 2 early in 1995 and in doing so moved to a newer machine running a much improved MUD server containing a much larger and more original world. Shadowdale moved to version 3 at the end of 1999 and the world changed substantially again, in order to try to make the MUD be more like the Forgotten RealmsTM universe on which it is based.
I've been running this web site for nearly 20 years and in all that time I've loved the interaction with the Shadowdale community. Its always been my hope that Shadowdale itself and my meagre efforts to chronicle some of the game would endure. We have Gandalf Parker to thank for maintaining the game for such a long time, may he rest in peace.
