UPDATE 03/14/2020:


Due to some health issues that are affecting job/financial issues, this looks like we may have our first year since 1996 without having a convention. We WANT to have one. But we need your help. From today until December 31st, we are offering double bonus codes. That means for every $25, you get 2 bonus codes. Thanks for any consideration.

We've got server rent due (most importantly) as well as the con chalet and expenses to pay for, so I wanted to change the drive up a bit.

From now until August 31st 2020: Double Bonus Codes.  This means you will get 2 bonus codes (instead of 1) per $25 donated.

When:  Now 

Why:  We need to pay the monthly hosting fees for the game server, the web server, the Wiki page as well as the domain names and email services.  We depend on these drives and your support to keep the game online.

How:  Check or Money Order Preferred (address in help donation), Paypal also accepted to tony@allengames.com. 

All can be found here:  http://www.dsl-mud.org/inside/donations.asp

After donating, BE SURE to fill out the form here:  http://www.dsl-mud.org/inside/idonated.asp

You will not receive a thank you until the form is filled out. (hopefully within 24 hours of that)

So what's available as donation rewards?

You will get a THANK YOU con card as well as random drawing code to use on the website (see far below for details).  

You will almost always get your codes within 24 hours of donating with some exceptions on larger paypal donations or if I am out of town calling a football or baseball game with no internet access at the hotel that evening.

You'll also get 2 hours on a character per each dollar (USD) donated .  (Or twice as much if you donate by check)   If you are Canadian or otherwise, try to convert it to USD or keep it close at least.

Depending on your donation amount, you can choose from the following cards as long as the values add up correctly. (to be clear, $50 does not get you a 100 eggs card AND a giant, that would be $75)

New Additions:

For those that want to lower your characters XP per level but don't want to skip some of the leveling process;

$25 - Lower the XP on a character to 25k per level.
$50 - Lower a characters XP to 10k per level.

Usual Cards:

$150 - Shokono Reclass Special (1k & 100% Skills Spells ONLY usable on the new Shokono reclassed characters)

$25  - Giant
     - 50 Eggs

$50  - 2nd Merit
     - Change Merit
     - 100 eggs
     - Gully Dwarf limited race
     - Perm

$100 - Max Enchant or Spellcraft (no rot death)
     - Manatonics or Vampires
     - Orc, Ariel, Pixie, Bakali or Centaur Limited Race (No Trolls)
     - Dragonskin (you choose the color)
     - 1k per level
     - 100% skills and spells
     - 1000 BP's
     - 100 Crafting Levels
     - 10 Trains
     - 5 Thauma
     - Perm+  (3 items permed)
     - Change Craft (changes 1 craft to another at the SAME skill level)

$200 - Time Saver (1k per level, 100% skills/spells and 2nd merit)
     - OMFG (random bonuses that you'll love)
     - Enchant+ (3 max enchants)
     - Spellcraft+ (3 max spellcraft, no rot death)

If you have any questions or wanted something I didn't list, email me at scorn@dsl-mud.org before donating.  I may have forgotten something we normally offer.


For every $25 donated, I will give you a special code and a link on the website in which to type in this code.  That code will generate a RANDOM prize.  You have a 40% chance to get a 25 egg card, a 20% chance at a 50 egg card and then a smaller % to get one of a bunch of assorted prizes, some of them are pretty nice.  (A few are cards that I've seen players sell for $200 or more)

To be clear, if you donate $100, you will get 4 codes to get random prizes.  If you donate $25, you get 1, etc.  Each code has the same chance as any other.  This allows those of you who wish to help get DSL online but do not have much to spare to have a shot at getting a nice card in return.

BE SURE to write down your code when the screen gives it to you and your prize.  You will only be able to use each code ONE time.

If you donate by check, I will give you an extra random drawing card per every $50 donated.  Checks and money orders have a lot more legal protection and no processing fees, so that is why they are encouraged over paypal, although paypal is also appreciated.

Monthly Drawing:
On the 15th of each month, I will enter your name into a drawing once for every $10 donated the past month.

The winner will receive their choice of a 3rd merit card or a RANDOM Dragon card.  (You pick good or evil)


*Spellcrafting cards CAN NOT overwrite existing spellcrafts on an item.  You may also not gain more slots of points than already allowed at their maximums.  The spellcraft cards are special because your item can not blow up, you do not have to pay for the gems (except the rare ones such as the ferrite crystals, you will have to provide those) and I will remove the rot death flag from them  after the item becomes so.

*We no longer set skills or spells in lieu of hours.  The bonus are hours only but you may take the hours in the form on a con card.


Thank you again to everyone who supports DSL, whether it be playing the game or helping to keep it online.
