You can also tweak your ansi color settings in some clients if you're not completely happy with how they look. For instance, I found the blue and black too dark to read and made them brighter. In zMUD this is in the View menu, Preferences, Colors, Foreground Mapping...

and then you can see colorful stuff like this:

The Entrance to a Chantry <e,w> Hermes, the guildmaster of the Warlocks. You make an amazing entrance! You say: ha-HA! Hermes, the guildmaster of the Warlocks is momentarily suprised by your entry! You dissect Hermes' left calf completely! You attack with your sword. You horribly burn chunks of flesh from Hermes' right hand. You slice Hermes' right hand causing profuse bleeding! You slice Hermes' left foot extremely hard. Hermes hits you with a ball of power, disintegrating you into component molecules! HP: 211/756 Mana: 616/616 Fatigue: 627/660 Exp: 1727647 You panic and attempt to flee west! Hermes attacks you as you flee! Hermes hits you with a ball of power, disintegrating you into component molecules! HP: -41/756 Mana: 616/616 Fatigue: 627/660 Exp: 1727647 You are incapacitated and will die unaided! Hermes grazes your right shoulder. HP: -44/756 Mana: 616/616 Fatigue: 627/660 Exp: 1727647 You are incapacitated and will die unaided! Hermes hits you with a ball of power, disintegrating you into component molecules! HP: -898/756 Mana: 616/616 Fatigue: 627/660 Exp: 1727647 You die by: magic, by Hermes's hand! The monocle vanishes as you drop it. An intense wrenching sensation assaults your soul, and you suddenly notice your own dead body as seen from above!

(of course it won't make you fight any better)
