StickMUD is a free, medieval fantasy game with a depth of features. Newbies escape quickly into game play with minimal study time. Awaken under the wondrous Mallorn Tree in the center of Newbie Park and learn by playing. Challenge non-player characters to gain experience, advance level and maximize your stats. Between battles, sit on the enchanted bench under the Tree to rapidly heal and reduce wait time. Signs in the park present game features such as races, clans and guilds. Read up on teasers about the adventures on the path ahead like dragons, castles and sailing. Upon maturing to level 5, join a guild and learn the ways of a Bard, Fighter, Mage, Necromancer, Ninja, Thief, Healer or Priest. Train skills in both craft and combat aligned with your guild. Participate in frequent game-wide events to earn points exchanged for gold, experience or skill training. Heroes and villains alike are invited! Role play is optional and player vs. player combat is allowed in much of the game. StickMUD was born in Finland in June 1991 and is now hosted in Canada. Our diverse community of players and active game engineers are ready to welcome new players like you to one of the best text-based multi-player games (MUD) ever!
