Tempus is a fun, multifarious, massive fantasy world with an overarching time travel theme.

High magic and futuristic technology collide in one of the foremost MUDs of its class. With past and future time periods, outer and elemental planes, intricate game mechanics, and a uniquely rich environment, Tempus aims to be the best there is.

Tempus is, and will always be, absolutely free to play.

Heavily modified since April 1995, Tempus still retains much of its Circle look, but the gameplay and feel are decidedly original. A perpetual work in progress, Tempus continues to be improved and expanded upon.

Advanced game play incorporates a combination of exploration, socialization, character customization, questing, and just plain fun.

Limited player versus player combat is also featured in conjunction with a reputation and bounty hunter system. Breaking from a common MUD trend, Tempus is not role-play intensive, allowing players the freedom to play their characters however they wish.

Tempus hosts a variety of past and future classes, including Cleric, Cyborg, Barbarian, Psionicist, Ranger, Bard, Mercenary, Physicist, and Monk.

An advanced remorting system allows players to create dual-class combinations, combining the skills and abilities of each class.

Quests, clans, guilds, group combat, unique religions, and a plethora of communication channels provide the players with a broad range of socialization and interactivity.

Players and staff hail from several countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union. They are known for and pride themselves on being extremely newbie-friendly.

The multifarious themes, character combinations, game play mechanics, gigantic world, and colorful people can make Tempus an extremely addicting environment.
