đź’ľ A monthly digest of text-based game development successes, failures, inspiration, and anecdotes from the members of The MUD Coders Guild.

Greetings, adventurers!
Whelp… it’s been a while. The past six months have been a whirlwind of chaos that forced me into an unexpected hiatus from the guild, however things are starting to calm down now and I am ready to kick things back into gear. With that said, I do want to take a minute and thank my fellow administrators @eric, @swiftausterity, and @trevoke for their steadfast dedication to the community. Despite my absence, they’ve done an amazing job that has resulted in incredible Grapevine growth, a new newsletter (which will be rolled under the Grapevine umbrella), a new game jam, and even a podcast!
Now, without further ado, I’d like to present the next issue of The MUD Coders Guild newsletter!

P.S. - Since the last newsletter the world has celebrated a number of holidays and events including, but not limited to, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day (to name a half-dozen), so rather than trying to play catch-up on everything we’ve missed, this issue focuses on more recent developments in order to keep things as relevant as possible.
