Is the MUSH down?
If you can't connect to Fallcoast MUSH, the best place to check is the Fallcoast Discord server. Discord is a free voice and text chat app designed specifically for gaming and is an offsite source of contact with other Fallcoast players. To connect just click on the Fallcoast Invite which will give you access to the server. Connecting is easy as it runs in current browser windows. See the Discord Website for more details on the chat service.
