Clio is a text-based MUD2 client for Windows, Unix, Linux, and MacOS X. Like any other telnet client, Clio connects to the MUD2 server allowing you to login to the game. However, once you have logged in, it switches the server to a special MUD2 client mode, providing a constantly updated display of your persona’s status, as well as details about the state of the current reset.

Clio works with MUD2 on both and, and can also be used as a standard telnet client for non-MUD2 MUDs, such as British Legends.
