MUME is a free multi user role-playing game based upon
J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Middle Earth' that has been continuously
running since fall '91.
The action takes place in the late Third Age, before 'The
Hobbit' and after the loss of the One Ring by Sauron. The
key of Erebor was just found by Gandalf and all the epic
tales narrated in 'The Lord of the Rings' may take place.
MUME covers 23'000+ original rooms from the mighty Dwarven
Halls beyond the Gulf of Lh�n in the West to the fringes of
Mirkwood in the East, and from the ruins of Fornost in the
North to the fortress of Isengard in the South. In this
meticulously crafted world where fantasy tales come to life
players may join the War between the forces of the Dark Lord
and the armies of the West.
MUME VIII is written in C and in mudlle (a functional
language that was developed in order to allow on-line
extensions to the game).
