Multi-User Dungeon (British Legends)
Rank: 420

     

Multi-User Dungeon, or MUD for short, was the first ever game of this genre. For many years, MUD, or British Legends as it was known to players, existed on the CompuServe Information Service. In the fall of 1999, however, CIS decided to terminate British Legends as part of their Y2K cleanup efforts. Many players thought that this meant the end of their beloved game.

That is not so. The present incarnation is a high-fidelity port of the original MUD code base to a modern server platform. This accurate reimplementation faithfully reproduces almost all the original's features, even some of the bugs that have become part of the game's lore.

If you want to see what multiplayer gaming was like in the Land where it all began, and visit a game that still offers superior game play and balance, a visit to MUD at http://www.british-legends.com/ will be worth your time!

This version of MUD/BL was written with the permission of the original copyright holder by Viktor T. Toth (aka Viktor the arch-wizard, formerly MrSpock the wizard) in a 'mad programming binge' (as MUD's original author, Richard Bartle called it) in December 1999, and has been in limited operation on a test site since. It was opened to the public in May, 2000.

An icon adventure game which I have personally enjoyed for many years. Aim of this game is to adventure through a land and collect treasure, solve many puzzles, slay a varying number of creatures and try ish Land make it to the SWAMP to dump all your goodies to earn points. But what makes British Legends special is that you have a number of REAL playes playing. Battle it out on a the Deck of a Ship, find weapons , use magic in battles and climb the ladder of levels to reach the sublime level of immortality WIZARD/WITCH.

But the games does NOT end when you become and immortal...it just begins. Then you become a powerful member / guide and contoller of the land and its adventurers.

Throughly enjoyable, with a great dedeicated community of players and WIZARDS / WITCHES that are happy to help. You havent lived until youve died on MUD

Enjoy :) KROLL
