Wheel Of Time MUD - Free Wheel Of Time Game Online, Authorised By The Late Robert Jordan. A Free Online Role-Playing Game with the Wheel of Time theme!
A MUD (Multi User Dungeon) is a community-created multi-user fantasy world written in text, the precursor and idea source for many of today's MMORPGs. Users can engage in a wide variety of gaming experiences, but because of their close community - typically all players know each other - MUDs also allow people to be part of a large web-focused social community. Muds cater for a wide variety of playstyles, the progressive 'levelling' aspect of which makes the gameplay become ever more satisfying as levels are gained. MUDs are divided into rooms and zones which create the illusion of a large physical plane; this provides the canvas for adventures: solving the puzzles and slaying the monsters gains players equipment, coin or levels. MUDs enjoy many unique advantages over larger MMO games, not the least of which is the fact that some are completely free to play, such as ours. Why is text good?
Robert Jordan's novels are incredibly imaginative and creative works of fantasy. Our text-based game works like a novel which never ends; for the avid book readers, with text being the medium of their choice, this makes it an ideal medium to game in. It allows the player the opportunity to be part of the Wheel of Time which never ends. Technically, for the purist gamer, there are also large advantages: text-based games don't require large downloads and don't lag like the graphical games do. Contrary to what you might expect, this makes for a better gaming experience - just see the reviews of the game.
