CandleMUD Theme

How would you like to travel back in time a few years? Say, to the Middle Ages or the Golden Age of Greece? CandleMUD is all about letting you experience just that. You get to play a person from any country in any era of history you please, prior to the invention of gunpowder.

A MUD is a sort of virtual world online. A kind of simulation. A lot of people can get accounts and log in to a MUD and chat with each other, fight with each other, and help each other. It can be a lot of fun, and many people spend several hours a day at it.

CandleMUD differs from most MUDs in that it keeps it's focus on real-world issues like history, science, and mathematics, instead of being fantasy based like other MUDs. It also is more family friendly. Anyone who is caught using bad words on the MUD will be immediately punished.


You can play multiple people in this MUD. You can also just play yourself. When you aren't playing a character, you can learn any number of subjects from tutorial texts written by your fellow Mudders. You can also write them if you are any good. This helps keep it from being a waste of time.

The characters can fight, both with each others and non-player characters. They can also raise crops and animals, work jobs to earn money, and gain political position. It's kind of like the game of Pretend, only you can have more people play it at once and everything is kept track of by computer. Also, it's something adults can do as well as kids, because the computer and social element makes it fun for them.
