Happy 10th Anniversary SlothMUD III!

Happy 10th Anniversary SlothMUD!

Fifteen-years ago, SlothMUD booted up for the first time. Quickly the little mud, operated by a handful of college students gained recognition across the world – from the United States to Russia to Australia and points in between and beyond. The goal in the beginning was to give people a friendly atmosphere in which to play, and a means with which to interact with friends across the globe.

Five years later, SlothMUDIII was born from the ashes with a new owner, and fresh ideas, and a new direction for the MUD. Since August 13, 1997, this direction has been to make SlothMUDIII one of the best MUDs on the internet. With hundreds of players worldwide, a friendly and robust atmosphere, and hours of enjoyment for everyone, SlothMUDIII has risen to the challenge of maintaining a free-to-play system with no donation system for elite equipment and an open-to-all mentality, all while improving game play by leaps and bounds through the years.

With an administration of helpful, diligent, and intelligent coders, SlothMUDIII now boasts eight regular classes plus an elite Avatar class to choose from in a four class system with hundreds of skills and spells to choose from along with thousands of unique items and equipment to make each character special to its owner. In the past ten-years SlothMUDIII has raised the bar for free-to-play MUDs everywhere by adding:
