I'm looking into MUSHes again briefly, and am having some difficulty with TinyMUSH. To complicate matters, I'm having trouble finding good, complete documentation. For example, why does a wizard character get "Permission Denied" for the @addcommand command?
or you could try logging in to: connect.mu-gateway.net 6677
Note: I can't, in good conscience, recommend the above links to children, Christians, or anyone under the age of 45. The MUSH community is rife with vile, perverted sycophants, and there are some bad people there, as well.
Yeah, WORA can be rough. Usually you'll get good help if you post in the semi-constructive forums though. I thinkLydia Leong has been working on TinyMUSH lately because of her Amber game. Check this out:
Thanks, everyone. I'm actually using MudCore at the moment, but I've been eying MUX with some interest, specifically because of their reality levels, which would work very well for a concept in our game.
I'll go take a look at the links, and heed the warning. ;) Much appreciated!
MUX is definitely great stuff, much more stable and flexible than TinyMUSH. As mentioned, it is also being actively maintained by a good sized community. PennMUSH is also an excellent choice for something on the opposite side of the style spectrum, and also has a great community.
