New host, same great game

 Hey everyone - I just wanted to quickly update you and let you know that Kingdoms of the Lost has moved to a new host. By and large, the connection should be pretty similar. We are actively moving kotl.org to its new domain, so it may take a day or two but that should be working right again soon.

The biggest difference is it will be port 2221 -- NOT 2222 as it has been for years. Our new host already has that port in use. So:


port 2221

and if for some reason the kotl.org domain isn't working for you, here's the new direct IP:

All player files are copied over to this new host as of 3:30pm, Dec 27th, 2020. Thanks for playing!
