***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.

After joining discord, check out the pinned posts for more up-to-date info including updates and additional (updated) info on THG that is not found on the website.

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.

Just wanted to say thank you for keeping this gem alive. It was one of my favourite byond games, and it's the one I missed the most

@AntiRawr Thanks. Most of us are on Discord if you haven't joined already:

At the moment, I stopped hosting the server temporarily because no one can reliably connect to the game. One of my lines is down. I will host the game again when AT&T fixes it.

The server is up despite the hub not showing that it is. Opening a location address 'byond://kija.projectwar' should get you to login to the game in byond now, as I just noticed the visibility was set to invisible. I changed it back to Public.

I think this happened when I tried to run the NameUpdater through the monitor because I forgot to rename the host file properly.

It would be nice to see this game back online.
