A MUD (Multi User Dungeon) is a computer program which users can log into, and in which they can explore a virtual world. Each user takes control of a computerized persona (also called character). One can walk around, chat with other characters, explore dangerous areas full of monsters and traps, solve puzzles and quests, and even create your own locations and objects.
