    Found it on TopMudSites
    I'm not 100% sure how I found Achaea. My first MUD was Gemstone IV (no clue how I found it), but I couldn't afford $30 per month (being 12 years old). As far as I can remember, I started looking at other MUDs instead (I chose TopMudSites for the poll, but there's a good chance it was another similar site), and Achaea was likely one of the first few I tried. Obviously I liked it.

    I appreciate the irony of the 'free' aspect that brought so many players to Achaea ;)
    While Achaea has been far from free for me, it's been a lot cheaper than any monthly subscription after more than 10 years.

    Read a kid's book about a boy playing a MUD and getting absorbed into the game. Googled MUD and this was the first result.

    10 years later, I know exactly what that kid felt like.

    Zmud, by random chance (it was near the top of list) circa 1999.

    @Delphinus I wonder what Leo Laporte's character name was.

    It shows "Archeopteron" in the video.

    Clicked on an ad
    I genuinely have no idea how I found it but I assume it was from an ad of some sort? It was my first Mud and I didn't know they existed beforehand and now I play all the IRE games

    A friend looked about for muds and we found one but it wasn't terribly interesting. I think I found Achaea via Altavista and I tried a few times to get myself into the game...and eventually did. Rest, as they say, is history.

    I decided to start playing again the old mud i used to play back when i was 15, but i found it boring.. so i clicked the recommended items in my very old version of Zmud (was something like 2.something), tried first anime mud(?), horrible thing.. and my second shoot was Achaea because I liked the name.

    i honestly don't remember (it was like 12 years ago), but i think it was topmudsites or an ad. or i googled "roleplaying games."

    When i was 16 an ex and his friends kept going on about some game and something called 'maldoor' and it sounded really lame. Not long after I was at a sleepover with one of the girls who had started playing and she made me make my first character, who joined Shallam because it had a pretty name. As far as I know, none of the rest of them still play, but Katzchen (who I think may have been introduced by them?) obviously still does!

    There was an ad for another MUD in a webcomic I used to read. I followed that to a MUD site (not sure if it was TMS) and picked one to try out.
