A New Breed of MUSH Server

Ares for Players

AresMUSH is designed for players familiar with PennMUSH and TinyMUX. Virtually all of the commands you’re familiar with will work just as you expect.

The Ares for Vets tutorial gives a run-down on some of the differences between AresMUSH and Penn/Tiny.


Commands in Ares are designed to be simpler and more approachable to new players, while at the same time preserving shortcuts for experienced players used to commands working a certain way. Where possible, it supports both Tiny and Penn syntax for things like mail and channels.


Player Handles bring a little taste of social media to MUSHing. A handle is your OOC identity, used across all Ares games. Through your handle, people can identify you as a player, not just as a character.

Little Things

Ares tries to make players’ lives easier. These little conveniences, like a better AFK system and a clear separation between IC and OOC command output, add up to a more pleasurable experience overall.
