Are You New to MUDs?

What is a MUD?

If you're completely new to online text-based roleplaying, a MUD (multi-user dungeon) is a form of multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORG) that is completely textual. Like an interactive, collaborative story, each player uses written text to describe their character's life as it unfolds, and to interact with other characters in the world. But like other computer games, there are also hard-coded actions, like combat, spellcasting, item-crafting, and more.

Required Reading

We strongly suggest that new players take the time to review the wealth of documents describing the rich cultural and historical detail of Zalanthas in order to help them design and roleplay an interesting, compelling character. If you want to try the game before investing too much time in the documentation, please read our Quickstart. Player Helpers are also available to guide you through your first forays in Zalanthas.
