How to Connect
Do you need help connecting to Imperian so you can play?
You can play Imperianin a variety of ways, including both in-browser and downloadable methods. We recommend:
- Nexus: Our official browser-based client works very well with the latest versions of all the browsers, with the exception of Internet Explorer versions 9 and earlier. This will give you the best and smoothest initial Imperian experience. Windows, Mac, Linux, Tablets.
- Mudlet: This is a third-party (free) downloadable client that is popular with players due to being highly-customisable. You'll use it to connect to imperian.com, port 23 (you can also use port 2003 if you are blocked from using port 23 for whatever reason). Windows, Mac, Linux.
- VIP MUD Client: This is a popular client for visually-impaired players. Free for 30 days, then $30 to buy. Windows only.
Playing on Mobile
There are a number of options to play on mobile, though playing on mobile can be challenging. It's more possible on tablets, and in both cases we recommend using Nexus We've also developed the IRE Android App but it will not see updates as often as Nexus will.
Here are some additional clients you can download for use on your computer, which connect to Imperian using the Telnet protocol (port 23). We try to fully support these clients through our in game options. These clients are very popular with seasoned players because of their customisability, and many have helpful out of character support groups in game. If the client you choose doesn't already have an Imperian profile pre-made, you can connect to the game at www.imperian.com, port 23 or 2003.
This list is not exhaustive - many more clients with varying degrees of feature sets and popularity are available.
