***The current version of The Hunting Grounds is being hosted 24/7.***

(Version 7++ - version 7 has changed so much over the years that we no longer have a proper version number for it since it doesn't coincide with old BH's vision.)

The Hunting Grounds - ORIGINALLY created by The Brotherhood (Dagolar, Kija, Mahn, Constantine, Kain, Soren, and U Dye) on 12/18/02 - takes place in the middle ages. Choose from 10 different classes with a total of over 60 character icons with a battle system that allows parties of up to 8 characters able to battle up to 32 monsters in battle. Excellent designing combined with well-crafted code make this 16 year old game reborn again in version 7 and onwards.
-----------------------------
Our current objective is create original graphics, sounds, and musics so that the game can become original like the original brotherhood intended it to be and so that the game can be on the hub again.

Add the game to your favorites list using the THG Server Link (byond://Kija.ProjectWar) to be notified when the server is online! An ip address is not provided since it's dynamic and will change from power outages and power cycling the network.

Keep in mind the event sources have not been updated and will not show up on the hub. I will try to keep the server address updated on Discord( maybe Facebook) and the hub page when this happens.

Le Vaughn here - add me if you want me to host version 4.0 since that is the only one available to download. I love the game, I would host it daily for anyone who wanted it up.
bring it back!
The Halloween server is up. The address is byond://74.179.38.223:1041.

To enter the world, open the menu from byond and then open file location and enter the address there (or click it).

Keep in mind the halloween server isn't updated so that means it won't appear on the hub (because it's still referencing the old byond address which Mahn deleted). In this version you are still limited to 2 keys, the old graphics are back so some areas may have changed somewhat (such as old cathedral and DM), no minibosses, no pop2, no instill 2 for RMs, among some other minor changes (hp changes for some monsters, as well as weaknesses and anything I forgot to mention).

Those who have defeated Malore (it's a very small number) who wish to play in the halloween server need to contact me by posting here so I can edit their save in order to progress through the halloween quest.
Thanks, and enjoy!

I wish the files for this were downloadable - like, not the V4, the V7 ones.
@Snakers - Before the old BH disbanded, there was talk of the V7 files being hosted at some point. Unfortunately, I don't know how to make them downloadable. I think Kija needs to do it since the game is under his name.

We hope you enjoyed the halloween event! The normal server is back and updated to include the port of benmoro dungeon! It is recommended that your levels should be gry ready or post-gry before you start adventuring there. Mer may have blocked it off until Gry is defeated. Enjoy!

I have a group of friends who intermittantly get filled with a buttload of nostalgia, so the intermittant nature of when this game is up makes us sad. Do you lot still have contact with Kija?

You'll find kija on the facebook page. We decided that it would be best for one server for now since it's up 24/7 except for power outages and unforeseen circumstances and has all the player saves.

And to quote Kija, "If that is what everyone wants, I can remove the host protection from the files. I am not really a part of those sort of decisions anymore. The main reason we have tried to keep it to only one host was to prevent the already small community becoming too fractured by having random servers. By having one server, you were at least guaranteed to be in the only place any who would be playing the game would be, with the same character every time."
Note to the Owners of this game, and I guess to the players who can no longer join. After playing the first time there seems to be a resources issue or something but you have to clear cache in order to play again. This has happened to me twice after logging out and i'm just trying to help the game gain players and keep them.

As far as I know, it's something with byond. You can try this fix, as it helped me: http://steamcommunity.com/app/249550/discussions/0/ 558752451401556239/
The Halloween Server is back up. Use this link to join:
byond://74.179.219.79:1041

(Please notify me if you can't join for some reason. The server/my router may go down and the ip address changes.)

EDIT: Updated Link.

Due to a bug, you cannot create new characters on this server. I apologize for the inconvenience (probably has something to do with the halloween files being outdated).

To enter the world, open the menu from byond and then open file location and enter the address there.

What is the updated link cant join up
As of this moment, it's byond://74.179.219.79:1041. It'll probably change.
for some reason it doesnt work.. just says connecting for a while then connection failed
Seems like my ip changes daily so it's not surprising. Right now the current address is byond://74.179.40.226:1041.
na still doesnt seem to work... have you got a redirect link available?
Can you please make it so we can repeat bosses with those who haven't done them yet? Since this game is perpetually empty, I'd like to be able to help my friends with the bosses to save a lot of making new characters and long lonely grinding. Every time someone new comes in, I have to start over, and I'm getting tired of never making any progress.
Thanks for having this up and running. the new graphics were a bit of a shock, but i am getting used to it. Let me see if i still remember how this works...

Old Man Dorn Dodges!

...yup... still got it!

;)
