The Firetop Mountain Servers


Saturday Aug. 14 2004 - there has been some data corruption after a server reboot. Janitors are looking into the cause of the problem. FM should be back up sometime in the next few days. The worst case for data would be that we rollback to a Thursday Aug. 12 backup.

Saturday Aug. 21 2004 - the server is up again. Games in progress are back to their Thursday Aug, 12 state.

Here are two articles written by one of the all time greats of Firetop Mountain, 'The Shadow' (Thomas Bress).

Here is another article on the uses of Invisibility by 'Nom' (Andrew White).

Source Code

The Firetop Mountain Source Code is available.


Firetop Mountain Unofficial Archives and Information is another FM website where you can look at many past games.

An up-to-date list of GAMES IN PROGRESS on the Main server is now available by using this link. The output should match that produced by the GAMES command in an e-mail submission to the server.

A list of CHALLENGES is also available. This page should mirror the information provided by a CHALLENGES command sent to the server.

Want to look up mage SCORES? The Duel Scores and Melee Scores scores are also available individually. The output matches that of the standard SCORES or STANDINGS commands.
Duel ELO scores are also available. New users start with a score of 1000. A difference of 100 in ELO scores indicates approximately a 2:1 advantage to the higher ranked player.
