What is MUME?
MUME is a multi-user roleplaying game based upon J.R.R. Tolkien's creation, Middle Earth.
The action takes place in the late Third Age, before The Hobbit and after the loss of the One Ring by Sauron. The key of Erebor was just found by Gandalf in Dol Guldur and all the epic tales narrated in The Lord of the Rings may take place.
MUME is written in C and in mudlle (a functional language that was developed in order to allow online extensions to the game) and has been running since January 1992.
MUME is running on a FIRE machine. You can either play by connecting directly by telnet to fire.heig-vd.ch port 4242 or via a server (advised for best link).
If you are new to MUME or MUDs in general, you should consult our newbie page: It contains introductory texts for complete beginners, as well as information on MUME's unique features for those who have already played other MUDs.
To see how MUME (d)evolved over the years, try "help MUME <version>", where <version> is a Roman numeral (I, II, III, IV, etc.).
