Realms of Despair - MUD Description
Realms of Despair is the original Smaug MUD. We have an active Roleplaying community, an active player-killing community, and a very active peaceful community. Players can choose from 13 classes (inluding one deadly-only class) and 13 races. Characters appearances are customizable on creation and we have a vast collection of equipment that is level/gender/class/race specific.

We boast well over 150 original, exclusive areas, with a total of over 20,000 rooms. Mob killing, or "running" is one of our most popular activities, with monster difficulties varying from easy one-player kills to difficult group kills.

We have four deadly-only Clans and many peaceful-only Guilds and Orders for players to join to interact closer with other players. We have two councils which are actively working towards helping players.

The Symposium, which hears ideas for changes, and the Newbie Council which is always willing to help out new players. Our team of Immortals are always willing to answer any questions and to help out however necessary.

With a player base of over 20,000 characters, and regularly seeing between 200 and 400 characters online at a time, we're a very popular, incredibly stable MUD, so come try us and you might find not only a fun game, but a fun community too!
