What is a MUD?

MUDs (Multi User Dungeons) are text-based online games. You can play them with a simple telnet, or you can use a MUD client like TinyFugue, GMud or ZMud. Don't expect graphics... a MUD is like an interactive book combined with a set of chatrooms. Before you enter a MUD for the first time, you should visit its homepage in order to find out what it's all about. Some MUDs are friendly socialising environments, others are made for players who love challenging situations.

Internet games can be highly addictive. Online times of more than 10 hours per week might have negative effects on your job, your education, your health, and your relationship to your friends and relatives. There's a real life out there - live it!
