It was a sight to be seen on no other world.
Of course, no other world was carried through the starry infinity on the backs of four giant elephants, who were themselves perched on the shell of a giant turtle. His name — or Her name, according to another school of thought — was Great A'Tuin; he — or she — is there, down below the mines and sea ooze and fake fossil bones put there by a Creator with nothing better to do than to upset archeologists and give them silly ideas.—The Light Fantastic (1986)
Welcome to Discworld MUD
Discworld MUD is a multiplayer, text-based, online game (a MUD, or text MMORPG) based on the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. On Discworld you will meet many of the characters from those books. Terry's books are humorous fantasy and the game retains the comical, fun feel of the books.
We are a fully-featured and well-established MUD with many possibilities for player interaction: diverse areas totalling over a million rooms, the opportunity to become a member of one of 6 guilds, a citizen of one of the many city-states on the Disc, run your own shop, own your own house, write for the local newspaper, and much more!
The 'playing' menu has links to a number of pages to help you get orientated.

Quote of the Moment
It was Carrot who'd suggested to the Patrician that hardened criminals
should be given the chance to "serve the community" by redecorating the
homes of the elderly, lending a new terror to old age and, given
Ankh-Morpork's crime rate, leading to at least one old lady having her
front room wallpapered so many times in six months that now she could only
get in sideways.
