Multi-User Domains

Multi-User Dungeon/Domain/Domicile/Dimension/Dialogue (MUD) come in numerous flavors and applications. Unlike Chat Groups which simply allow users to interact over the Internet, MUDs provide a state-based environment and context in which users can interact not only with each other, but with rooms, objects and animated computer agents.

While most MUDs are implemented as games, MUDs are applicable in any situation where a users need to interact with each other or a database in a way that requires state-based sessions.
