I don’t believe I’ve mentioned it here yet, but around 2005-2007 wrote a custom MUD client using wxWidgets and SDL. It runs fairly well on Windows and tolerably on Linux (there are one or two glitches). I designed it to work with Duris and its prompt system. It shows maps for a zone if they’re available and keeps track of hits, mana, and moves via a meter system. The graphics are pretty simple, although I had planned to improve them a bit. This program was written from scratch and could form the basis for a custom hybrid 2-d/text-based Basternae client at some point.
Here’s a screenshot (while playing Duris):
