When Frodo destroyed the One Ring, Shadow fell, Sauron
and his darkness were no more, and all lived happily for
about 200 years. Until....

The best war MUD, RETURN OF THE SHADOW, is a dedicated Tolkien
game. Join either good or evil side battling for the supremacy of
the world! The MUD features have many unique spells/skills, an
original Tolkien world, many classes, including an option to make
your own class, races you would expect to find on Arda,
restricted player killing (race war), a more realistic
fighting/spell/skill system. Roleplaying is highly encouraged.

Happy mudding!
