Join an empire or start your own!
EmpireMUD is back with version 2.0, massively updated from the year 2000-era EmpireMUD. The game engine is distantly derived from CircleMUD, with WAY more features and a focus on a game map where the players build every road, house, and tower. Since 2013, EmpireMUD has received regular updates from its original developer including major new features, upgrades to features that weren't quite working, and lots of great adventures.
EmpireMUD features a beautiful in-game ASCII map and also includes full screenreader support for visually impaired players developed with feedback from the community, so everyone can play together!
Enjoy features like:
- Build your own empire from the ground up, stone by stone.
- Forge alliances and trade rare resources around the globe.
- Play as a warrior, a mage, a vampire -- or combine them.
- Your level is based on your gear and skills, not the other way around.
- 280+ unique abilities to choose from.
- Instanced dungeons fill the world with hand-crafted content which range from tiny points of interest to expansive stories.
- 100% original world and adventure areas.
- Play in special events for fun, unique prizes like enchanted forests and flying vehicles.
- Our largest adventure zone, "The Tower Skycleave: Ashes of History", is a novel-length mystery at 146000 words with a deep history to explore and dozens of secrets to find. Or, you can hack-and-slash through it, rescue the tower, get the loot, and skip the existential pondering. Either approach is valid!
Come check out EmpireMUD. The players are friendly, the learning curve is quick, and you'll be sitting on your own throne in no time at all.
