I am still a fan of BurningMUD. It is a typical DikuMUD, but for some reason I absolutely love the play there. The character class setup is interesting in that after you each level 50 you can go back down to 1st level and level that class back up to level 50 until you have a multiclassed character.

It is still running too which is always a plus. Evrey couple of years I go back and play for a month or two.

I used to play alot of Diku's and coded for a few different circle mud's.

Gosh, i can't remember the names of any of them either. I was a big fan of creating areas with things like

You are at the end of the path.
When pushing aside the branches you can see a shadowy portal in the shadows of the thicket to the east.
E
Wind rushes past you and you become quite lightheaded and pass out. Several moments later you awake on a cold stone floor.
Look
In a dark musty cavern.
W
A solid wall of granite blocks your path to the west.
/yell anyone know how to get out of this place and back to the forest?

I've played MUDs since the 1990's. My favorite ones were based upon Battletech. At first, I didn't know anything about the Battletech universe but I enjoyed playing the various MUDs and began reading the roleplaying books. It's a rich and diverse universe and some of the MUDs were very ambitious. The combat system was very solid and appealing, even though I was looking at scrolling text and ASCII representations of maps. Unfortunately most of the Btech MUDs died.

There was a Star Trek MUD based upon the old series which was fairly popular. The combat system was a little hard to grasp under a text system, so I didn't play it all that much.

I've logged onto everything under the godwars codebase on mudconnect.com and etc, and still haven't found a code better than Godwars: Rogue Edition, run by Listy.

It's been dead for about a year+ though (

I tried several way back when I started playing online. I landed on Dragon Realms. I loved it. The game is still going, though I do not play it. The makers are making a new graphical game. It costs 15 bucks a month to play! It was only 4 bucks and some change back when I was playing it.

I began playing Dragonrealms with my son when he was in high school. Now he is 28 and we are again playing Dragonrealms, even though my son lives far away. We played WoW together and leveled to 60 at exactly the same moment. It is one of our fondest memories. We enjoy our gaming relationship, although the rest of the family just does not understand...

Dragonrealms has been coming up a bunch -- we had it added to the standard playlist in today's patch It would be great to have more Dragonrealms players, and MUD players in general, get their histories into the system... I think these games are really central to whole history of online gaming.

I've never played one. They were just hitting big on campus in 1991. I saw too many of my friends flunk out of college because they'd be at the lab all hours of the day/night playing. I think I'd have probably overdone it, too, so I stayed away.

Had I already graduated, though...yikes I'd have been doomed.
