to type is telnet://mud.agesofdespair.net:5000 in the address window.
This will bring up whatever your default telnet client is.

is a MUD Client?
A MUD Client is a software program that helps you to connect
to a MUD and enhances your playing experience. Telnet is one
such client program. Many clients written for MUDs have special
added bonus features (bells and whistles) such as aliases,
triggers, timers, keypad-navigation, speed-walking, auto-say,
scripting, ANSI color-support, user-defined font and size,
user-defined macros, logging, copy-and-paste, and printing.
These features are not really 'needed' to mud, but can make
your MUD life easier and more enjoyable.
