Epitaph is now open! Epitaph is a text based MUD/MMO based in the grim darkness of the zombie apocalypse. We've been under development since December of 2009 - we've been working very hard on it, and we're now ready for our version 1.0 release. We are completely free to play - no sign up fees, no micro transactions. You won't be asked for a penny, now or in the future. We have an 18 age rating though, so if you're younger than that you'll have to wait a while before you can try us out. We're aiming to be a highly accessible game, so those of you with screen readers will hopefully find us welcoming.

You play the role of a survivor thrust into an unfriendly world full of factional interests and diminishing supplies. We have exciting ranged and melee combat, fully featured crafting, clans and achievements for players and clans, deep and involving stealth, and hundreds of unique quests. We have keyword based discussions that let you probe NPCs for their deepest, darkest secrets. We have randomly generated missions. We have hundreds of commands, many of which you can purchase as you advance through the game. We have knacks that let you fine-tune your play style, and around 90 skills that you can master as you gain in power and confidence.

While our game is primarily action focused, you don't have to kill to get ahead - you can sneak your way to success, or forge your future in crafting. We have a random events generator that keeps things interesting. We have sound and sight based situational awareness. We have electronics, laptops, mobile phones, and video cameras. We have practise based learning and XP based advancement. We have both local and remote computer hacking. We have a deep, engaging morality system and extensive narrative based gameplay. For those who enjoy the social aspects of MUDs we have community based role playing rewards and police systems.

Man, we've got it all.

Epitaph is a constantly evolving and developing game with a dedicated creator team. We'd love if you stopped by and checked us out.

Browse to http://epitaphonline.co.uk and click 'play now'! Those of you who use MUD clients can reach us at epitaphonline.co.uk, port 6789.

As a small note though - consider your first few runs through the game to be 'disposable'. It turns out the apocalypse is not a forgiving place. We're TOUGH but FAIR, but you need to keep your wits about you and practise good survivor discipline. Also, we're a new 1.0 release - expect bugs and typos. We're fixing these as rapidly as we can!

Hope to see you at the end of the world,

I first came across Epitaph a few months back when I was away working. I returned about a month ago as this mud caught my eye. As a survivor of a zombie plague you have to use your wits and skills to survive. Now this game is hard as you learn the system. A level less game that mainly rewards by doing by the taskmaster system. You can also gain experience by well designed quests and missions as well as achievements and use them to buy training from certain trainers from the many factions in the game.The biggest draw to the game for me is crafting, nearly everything can be salvaged and used to create items, later I hear that you can even make more advanced items using schematics and producing raw materials for said items. Now I am not usually a MUD player and more of a MUSHer, however the atmosphere and detail have me drawn deeply. The amount of possible directions can only grow with more players as groups of desperate people band together to create the things they need to survive. Fine tuning your knacks and choosing the commands you wish to focus on can truly make your character unique. So if you ever wanted to hold out inside a mall, or have a pint in the Winchester then Epitaph will meet your zombie killing needs. Active staff are working on this new game but all ready it looks like one hell of a game. Hope to see you surviving in this hell hole. Romero
