Mystic BBS was conceived around the year 1995 when the author became frustrated by the lack of customization available with Renegade BBS, and first released to the public in late 1997 during a period when many BBS packages were seeing a decline (or a full stop) in development. Mystic is developed from the ground up with all original source code and is intended to be the spiritual successor to both Telegard and Renegade.
Mystic has internal Telnet, RLOGIN, SSH, NNTP, POP3, SMTP, FTP, HTTP and BINKP servers while continuing to focus on and enhance the SysOp and user experience.
Supports Linux on multiple platforms natively (including the RasPi).
Supports Renegade-style MCI codes. Full support for QWK and echomail. Up to 255 users simultaneously. IRC-like BBS chat. Has its own scripting language (MPL) and supports Python for writing addons. Built in admin tools, including moderation and blocking.
