So... Saracen. What is it?
Saracen is essentially a large collection of scripts that aim to make your life much easier while playing Lusternia. As you can see from the screenshot, the options with Saracen even just via user interface interaction are second to none. You get much, much more than what you see here.
Here, I will briefly outline the current features available in Saracen (Beta):
Saracen feature list
Full event-driven user interface containing:
* System and character status data.

* REQUIREMENTS *
At this stage, listed amongst the requirements for Saracen, m&m is one of these requirements. If you do not own m&m then at this stage, I am sorry, for Saracen is not for you.
Please do stay updated for further development on Saracen. We do have planned a version that does not require m&m and also a version for small screens.
Aside of this, you should be good to go!

Important information about Saracen.
99.99% of the code in Saracen is available to read and learn from. There is however, a method employed such that each downloaded system will work on just a single character. Upon download, you will receive an installable package that is simply imported via the package manager.
Our aim with Saracen is that everything should 'just work' - From the tabbed chat right through to the autobasher. That said, Saracen is still considered a beta stage product and you should expect issues and bugs because of this.
Should there be any questions pre-release, do not hesitate to contact us at support at pharanyx dot com. Alternatively, you may request to join the in-game clan. Simply prod me here or message Hawst in game.
As Saracen is a full user interface for Mudlet, it is recommended that you have a sufficient screen resolution. Widescreen is a must. We will not support resolutions below the threshmark. You should make certain that your hardware can support Saracen before purchasing! No refunds will be made given the aforementioned circumstances.
