A great MUD with a fairly large player base. It's been around since 1994 and I've been addicted since 1999. Theme is something held in very high regard and I feel (for the most part) that the Professor's works have been correctly portrayed. It focuses on the War of the Ring and the Third Age. Might catch some member's interest or does anyone already play? I know there must be some MUDders here somewhere
"A tall crown he wore like silver, from which his long hair fell down as foam glimmering in the dusk; and as he cast back the grey mantle that hung about him like a mist, behold! he was clad in a gleaming coat, close-fitted as the mail of a mighty fish, and in a kirtle of deep green that flashed and flickered with sea-fire as he strode slowly towards the land."
I have only been playing since 2007, but I've been addicted ever since!
The number of ways to connect, world originality, restricted player killing, encouraged role-playing, volume of quests and areas to explore, realism, and the fact that the game is -free-, plus the fact that I simply love the theme, all entice me to stick around.

The Two Towers Mud is a richly developed and highly interactive world. There are literally hundreds of quests, with rewards great and small, for you to discover.
The Two Towers has an active community of players from around the world who come together to play online. Players join together to create clans and guilds, raid enemy lands, socialize, and more. Roleplaying is encouraged and player-killing is restricted, but allowed.

The Two Towers Mud is a free multiplayer online roleplaying game set entirely within Tolkien's world of Middle-Earth. We have extensively re-created the lands of Middle-Earth in a rich text environment, from Mithlond to Mordor and the lands of Harad beyond. With a huge wilderness of more than 100,000 rooms and approximately 12,000+ unique rooms in towns and quest areas, the extensive lands of Middle-Earth are always growing. The Two Towers MUD is a richly developed and highly interactive world. There are literally hundreds of quests, with rewards great and small, for you to discover.
The Two Towers has an active community of players from around the world who come together to play online. Players join together to create clans and guilds, raid enemy lands, socialize, and more. Roleplaying and player killing involvement is encouraged, but optional. Both RP and PvP are supported with in-game mechanics.
Online continuously since 1994, The Two Towers is one of the longest running multiplayer games on the internet and is maintained by a staff of hardworking volunteers who love Tolkien's works and multiplayer gaming.
Browser client: t2tmud.org/client The Two Towers web client is far superior to standard telnet clients, and has features similar to traditional MUD gaming clients, but requires no downloading or installation. Want even more customization? Consider using a traditional MUD client of your choice.
Game instructions: Create a character and explore the world with typed commands. Use the text interface to perform quests, interact with other real players, and do your part in the War of the Rings. The playing environment is entirely textual; typed commands (in English) control a wide range of possible actions, including combat and social functions. Some interface options can be changed in a graphical menu.
* Seeking New Players!
We are looking for new adventurers who wish to play a part in the war, good or evil! People who are looking to immerse themselves in Middle-Earth through questing, roleplaying, exploring, socializing, gearing, golding, and so on. We welcome one and all to start off in the lands of Middle-Earth, both among the Free Races in West Arda and on the more challenging Evil Race side in Far Harad. Perhaps one day you too will fight Shelob in her lair as a mighty adventurer or proclaim the tales of Beren and Luthien as a loremaster throughout all of Arda.
The Two Towers offers a variety of services to new players to help them get started. We have an extensive collection of help files that can be accessed in-game and through our website, a volunteer staff of newbiehelpers with a dedicated newbiecomm, an in-game graphical map command, as well as a multitude of external player driven resources, including maps and quest guides.
Creating a new character:
Click the Play Now button from t2tmud.org to access the webclient.
Type ‘new’ to begin the character creation process.
Pick a name which is thematic to Tolkein’s works. Your character name is an essential part of your roleplay. As such, you should choose a creative, original name that fits both our Tolkien setting and the character you're going to play. Since a name which might suit a haradrim warrior would not be as fitting for an elven wizard, some thought should go into this lifetime decision. Names should be just that: a name, ideally a first or personal name like you are called in real life. Because of this, names should not be phrases ("Gottakill"), include titles ("Sirjasper"), be unpronounceable in English ("Rjgebwf") or take those of canon characters. Names should also not be acronyms; if you cannot get your meaning across with one word (or even a portmanteau), you should select something else! Lastly, because your character is a unique creation existing in this Tolkien world, he/she should avoid using a name of a character from other media as well, as your character is your own unique creation and should be named appropriately.
If the name you desire is available after you enter it, type ‘yes’ or ‘y’. If you do not wish to use the name you typed in, type ‘no’ or ‘n’.
Create a password.
Confirm your password.
Provide your name and an email address should you wish to have the automatic password recovery option available to you. If not, click enter to bypass these entry fields.
At this point, you can choose to enter the tutorial. It is highly recommended that you go through the tutorial as you cannot access it once you bypass it. Type ‘y’ to proceed through the tutorial. Type ‘n’ to skip the tutorial entirely. The tutorial is helpful to individuals wishing to familiarize themselves with game commands, provides information on the setting of the world, and provides starting items that may be of use to new players.
Once you have created your character, you are free to move about the lands. Basic command information is provided in the tutorial and basic quest information is available in certain locations in-game, but it is highly encouraged that you explore the world around you to discover things for yourself. If you need help starting out, feel free to ask on the newbiecomm or to contact a helper directly.
To access the newbiecomm: ] message Example: ] Hi, I’m new here.
To talk to a newbie helper directly: who helper Identify who you might want to talk with. tell helpername your message Example: tell Fred Hi, I have a question.
