You might look at the Dawn of Time codebase. It's ROM but redone in C++ supposedly. I don't think it's actively being developed anymore, but many bases aren't.

Re: Source 4 me?

A MUD really isn't the kind of project a novice should use to learn, at least not as a solo thing.

I would suggest thinking of something simple you want to do, and then do it. When you're done, expand it a little. After a few expansions, set it aside and start from scratch and make a new version and see what other ways you can code something with the same end result. If that's not your type of thing, pick a MUD and see if they are willing to bring on a novice for some smaller projects. Starting a MUD, even if it's just to learn, is such a massive project you will quickly become overwhelmed and most likely give up on it.

For a single player game you might could look at Interactive Fiction design tools. Inform 7 is a good one to use for creating and playing those games.

Welcome

An excellant source for links and information for MUDs can be found at The Sourcery. Specifically, try "MUD Servers Other Languages". While a given codebase from the list may not be available at that site you can then google around and search for the information with a codebase name.

Best of luck.

Re: Source 4 me?

Most MUD codebases are not ideal for a single-player game (maybe the Multi-User in MUD is a clue). While I'm not familiar with Inform 7, I'll trust to K's judgement of recommending that one instead.
