Once upon a time there was Discworld. There still is an adequate supply.
Discworld is the flat world, carried through space on the back of a giant turtle, which has been the source of — so far — twenty-three novels, four maps, an encyclopedia, two animated series, t-shirts, scarves, models, badges, beer, embroidery, pens, posters, and probably, by the time this is published, talcum powder and body splash (if not, it can only be a matter of time).
It has, in short, become immensely popular.—The Science of Discworld (1999)
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!
There is no cost to play Discworld MUD, it is developed and maintained entirely by volunteers. You can login and create a character with any java-capable web browser simply by clicking on the 'play now' link to the left.
The 'playing' menu has links to a number of pages to help you get orientated.
You can also check out our recent developments blog for more game changes!
There are no open polls.
