MUDs, Multi-User Dungeons, are an early form of online RPG. Players would log into shared servers, experience text only worlds, text-only interaction with other players and issue text-only commands.
It worked really well. Achaea, from Iron Realms, is a 24-year-old MUD and it is still going. In fact, it’s going great funs with over 10,000 characters taking part each month. As you might imagine, over these two decades, Achaea has solved from the old telnet basics of MUDs.
Today, Iron Realms announced that four profile tabletop RPG creators are written unique quests for the player base to experience.
Involved in the quest project are;
- Mark Rapson, Nightfall Games and Terminator the RPG creator
- Markeia McCarty, Critical Role and Geek & Sundry guest star
- Tim Lanning, host of the Greetings Adventurers D&D Podcast
- Aaron Reed, DriveThruRPG top-selling creator
The quests these creators have designed will roll out over the coming month and will then be experienced players controlling one of 20 unique classes, perhaps coming from one of the 6 PC run cities in the game.
Jeremy Saunders of Iron Realms Entertainment said;
Opening our world of Achaea to a select group of independent tabletop game creators is incredibly exciting for us. We see tabletop fans as a parallel community for text MUDs. These are players who thrive on grand, imaginative concepts and meaningful interactions with the world and with other players. We look forward to seeing these communities try a MUD.”
