In this thread, I'd like participants to discuss their favorite "themes" in games - particularly the more established themes - and provide some links to helpful information sites that players can use to familiarize themselves with canon such as worlds, races, etc.

Please - and this goes for folks from my games too - no linking to MU* main home pages. But if you've got your own personal Armageddon (or other game) site with tips for newbies, however, feel free to link to it.

For the Tolkien folks out there: check out the Encyclopedia Arda.

We actually link to it in numerous places in our MUD's chargen process; there's so much well-researched Middle-earth lore there that it pretty much eliminates the need for us to assemble and host it ourselves.

Very handy resource.

I hate to sound totally unoriginal, but I think that the Warhammer fantasy series has a really good theme behind it.

I got hooked on the hobby a while back, (before mudding).

Anyways, I really like the High Elf / Dark Elf / Dwarves animosity they worked out. I'm also very parital to the lizardmen, I think their Aztec flavour is really cool.

Mind you, you have to buy the codexes to read all about this, but they're definitly worth a look.

No, I don't work for GW (games workshop)

Possibly even less original than Rundvelt's post, what about a theme a LOT of muds out there seem to follow, even if somewhat loosely in some cases, D&D and it's various offshoots. Those wanting follow this theme will find a wealth of information at various sites, but the one I like is Wizards of the Coast I know it's mainly designed for desktop games but there is still a lot of very useful information there.
