From the creators of Threshold RPG comes a brand new real world simulation game. One of the biggest names in LPC meets one of the long-time DIKU coders to bring a new and unique online roleplaying game with a brand new codebase and mudlib.

Primordiax has been years in creation, and now the anticipated MUD is opening its doors and welcoming players. We are currently entering Open Beta for anyone interested in trying some of the main features of the game as well as innovative roleplayers who wish to get in at the ground floor. Please feel free to log on with your favorite client (info to be released) or with our graphical, custom mud client (accessible upon release). Bring your friends.

Our goals for creating Primordiax is to allow multiple types of players to find a niche and enjoy the world. You can level via combat, crafting and trade, or by playing a character that supports crafters or fighters. Pick the path that is best for you, or play one of each.
