For about 9 years now I’ve been playing a MUD online. MUD stands for Multi User Dungeon or Multi User Domain. The MUD I play is called Deeper Trouble. It’s a text based multiplayer role playing game set in a vaguely tolkienesque world. For the last year or so I’ve actually been a wizard on the mud, which means I do the coding side of things, fixing bugs, writing new areas and maintaining the existing code base.
If you’re not already hooked on the latest graphical MMORPGs and you’re looking for a game that requires a bit more imagination and thought, then why not give Deeper Trouble a go? All you need is a telnet client, which you use to connect to deepertrouble.demon.net on port 4242. There is also a website: http://www.deepertrouble.demon.net/
