What is the Discworld?
'Discworld' is the name of the world where the humorous fantasy books by Terry Pratchett takes place. This site is not meant to infringe on any copyrights. It is a page about a non-profit MUD (Multi User Dungeon/Domain) based on the wonderful world that Terry Pratchett has created and populated in the Discworld books. He is one of my favourite authors and I'm happy to have "met" him when I've had some books signed, the two times he has been in Gothenburg at the "Swedish Annual Book and Comic Convention" (or whatever it might be called in English...)

What is a MUD?
MUD stands for Multi User Dungeon/Domain and is a text based environment. It is a community of people who plays/chats/roleplays/idles with their characters in a world made of text, based on a theme which in this case is the Discworld books. Thousands of rooms make up larger areas like cities and terrain. There are streets, houses, shops, banks and much, much more (look at my maps to see more). Moving, talking, fighting and everything else is done by typing the action. To visit the Discworld MUD, click here.

Who am I?
My name is Fredrik Larsson and I'm from Gothenburg in Sweden. I've been active on the Discworld MUD since August 1998. My first and main character is the warrior Airk. I have tried out all the guilds though, more or less, so I know a bit about most things. I don't mind taking a little of my time to answer questions when I'm online, as long as you take a little time to make sure you try your best at grammar and spelling. It is a text based medium after all and what you type is what you are. If you are near me I can also teach you skills and commands and/or help you to repair items.

About these pages!
Everything on my pages, unless specifically mentioned or obviously noticeable, is made by me alone. I have invested a lot of time since early 1999 to keep it updated and growing. Please do not copy/edit anything without asking me first, unless it's for strictly personal use.

Helping me out!
My pages have grown quite a bit since I first made them in april 1999. To keep all the parts updated today, I need your help. When you find an error on my pages, please let me know what and where. If it's about the maps, check that you are not referring to a hidden area as I prefer not to show those. Do not send me maps that you think I should put on my page. If you have a suggestion about making some kind of map (or something else), contact me first! Mud mail is preferred, but a tell works if I'm online. You could email me at airk (at) hotmail (dot) com too, but with all the spam email you'd better make sure the subject looks normal so I won't just throw it away.

Early August 2004:
A new site design again! I made this change mostly because I wanted to move the maps to gothmudders.com, but also to make it easier to find stuff. Everything still links together, but is seperated into three sites: Main (this one), Warriors' Guild and Airk's Atlas (on maps.gothmudders.com).  "Main" has all the general information bits, "Warrior's Guild" has all the Warrior bits and "Airk's Atlas" has all the maps. I still have some maps on "Main" as well, as a sort of mirror for the larger maps. Overall there are small updates of all kinds of things on most of the pages.

May 2004:
The new Ramtops map is in.

March 2004:
5:th anniversary! March 1999 saw the first version of my page and my maps. Since then a whole lot of maps, updates and additions through the years has led to todays site! We'll see how long it lasts... ;) I'm not sure if anyone has used and enjoyed the for site that long, but please let me know if you have. Anniversary presents are welcome too, of course *grin*

December 2003:
Some odd weapons added to the weapon list, thanks to Langrisser.
Archived Scores Table added to logs.

Introduced  the latest version of my pages. I decided to skip the frames and make it possible for people to reach all pages from all pages, if you would end up any other page than the start page. The Warriors section is still under construction. If you encounter any problems with this new version of my pages, please let me know what they are.
