MUD Research

The following pages summarize my research on Multi-User Dungeons (MUDs). The summaries include histories, insights, and technical mumbo jumbo. MUDs have a long and rich lore. MUDs predate personal computers and the Internet. MUDs do not, however, predate electricity, sunlight, written language, or me.

Summaries of Imaginary Realities MUD Ezine

Imaginary Realities was an e-zine dedicated to MUD related articles. I have included summaries of every article I can find. If anyone has missing articles, provide me with a link, and I will summarize it, too.
