|Star Wars Mud - SWmud - MUD Description|
|A mud based on Star Wars, up since 1994 and still going strong. There are over 40 planets and space stations to explore. Not limited to any particular timeline, most areas are set around the time of the original trilogy - however, there are planets set as far back as pre-Revan Dantooine and as far forward as Yuuzhan Vong War era Borleias.
Players can choose from 23 races and pick 3 of 10 guilds, with an optional fourth at level 25/25/19. All players have access to two character slots and can unlock up to three more after meeting certain requirements for each.
There are movable vehicles, ranged combat and an extensive space combat system. Players can also build their own ships that can be stored safely when they are not playing. Most equipment can be stored in a player's condo or villa. All but autoloads are lost between reboots, which occur every 5 days, 5 hours. Between merchant player shops and the relative ease of obtaining basic gear, it is not difficult to get reequipped.
The help (or 'panic') files are very extensive and they can all be found on the mud's website at www.swmud.org. A newbie school, channel and simulator with several low-level areas helps new players with learning the basics of SWmud. The mud also has newsgroups for players to post ideas and discuss various topics regarding the mud.
Player killing is allowed only among those registered as PKers. Occasionally, we have PK weeks where players can try PKing without some of the penalties for joining or leaving. Most PKers are willing to teach newcomers the basics at any time.
Most quests are not required for advancement, though many exist for those who enjoy doing them. Players wishing to level past 19/19/19 will need to complete the High Mortal quest.
