Alfandria is a role-playing and social MUCK with the theme of dragons and dragonkin, though furries and otherkin are welcome to come and play. It is also the name of a LiveJournal community, which caters to the same audience that the MUCK does.

The name Alfandria came from the newsgroup alt.fan.dragons, where much of the role playing began and still continues.

Rebirth

Alfandria has been restarted by a group of fans and went live again on July 6th, 2009. The data from the original Alfandria has proved to be unrecoverable and so a new MUCK has been built to replace it. At the urging of Eredien and Skoshun, Arcturax altered a copy of a MUCK he once ran called Pax Draconis and rechristened it as a new Alfandria. The alfandria.net domain has also been secured and is being redirected to the MUCK's new server.

Demise of Original Incarnation

The website in the header has long since been 404'ed. The server used to reside on alfandria.chameleon.net, but in 2004 the server had a crash of some sort and was resurrected on the subdomain jaguar. A few fruits (long-time users) and nuts found the new address and gathered at the central clearing. The server was shut down with no notice in early July 2007.

The reason for the MUCK's demise is now known to be caused by the failure of a RAID controller on the server. The MUCK's owner Aetobatus is attempting to recover the data so that the MUCk can be restarted.

LiveJournal community
