Welcome to the MUD Coders' Guild Wiki

Welcome! By what name shall I call you?

Erm, sorry. Got carried away.

This is the home of the MUD Coders' Guild, a repository of resources and documentation related to designing, programming, and building text-based virtual worlds. This is the place to document a codebase, general programming techniques related to virtual worlds, design patterns (we're fans of Bartle, here), and other relevant topics. Please feel free to create an account and join in!

What is a MUD/Virtual World?

☀A virtual world or massively multiplayer online world(MMOW) is a computer-based simulated environment populated by many users who can create a personal avatar, and simultaneously and independently explore the virtual world, participate in its activities and communicate with others.

MUDs are one of the first incarnations of a virtual world, and are typically text-based in nature.
