In Aug/Sep 2004, I had to retire the Crimson2799 server.
I do not expect Crimson2799 to return.
I'd like to thank Ryan Haksi for building the Crimson2 codebase and inviting me to join the project, and all Crimson2799 players and staff. It's been fun.
You can download the Crimson2799 source code with area files. This is a snapshot of the MUD from around the time it closed.
