MUs are a collection of text based games. They are the precursor to the modern MMORPGs that we have today. They allow for much more creative freedom than that of modern MMORPGs and similarities often compared to reading a book versus watching a movie. MUs are collection of rooms, objects, and players which all interact in a shared world. Some are highly focused on combat, while others are more socially based. They are usually based around popular culture theme or table top RPGs.

They work on telnet protocols and are easy to connect to. While raw telnet can be used, several speciality programs have been written for MU*s, such as Potato, SimpleMU, and MUSHClient.

 

Currently when connecting to Deep Shadows we are using a new server type EVENNIA Beta. Older MU Servers were built on a clumsy Softcode which was outdated and difficult to find any resources on. Evennia runs strictly on a modern scripting language with plenty of resources available to learn.
