“The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend.”

The Wheel of Time MUD is a time-honored multi user dungeon – an interactive text-based game which has been enjoyed for free by web users since 1993. It is the oldest and most popular online game set in the Wheel of Time world, with a unique mixture of classic mudders and Wheel of Time fans. WoTmud is also officially sanctioned, with personal permission to operate from the late Robert Jordan.

Our aim is to provide a personalised game environment in which folk can come play whenever and however they want to play. Our game mechanics involve strategy, teamwork, puzzle-solving, timing, and knowledge gathering; but what you choose to do is up to you. Nothing is mandatory, and we have as few rules as is reasonably possible. There are a wide variety of players that you may encounter in your travels, but nobody is putting you into a box. You can be as many, or as few, as you wish.

Who might I find?

Roleplayers
Roleplay is the foundation of WoTmud. Every detail in the game is designed to closely mirror the books, allowing you to create your own heroes and villains. A team of 'Watchers' (aka RP immortals) encourage and reward RP realism, and there are entire clans dedicated to bringing the story to life.
Player Killers
PvP is fast-paced, real-time, and exciting. Driven to reach their full potential, these players live for the kill. With darkside, lightside, seanchan, nation wars, darkfriends, assassins, and bandits; PK is varied and frequent. Be who you want. Keep what you kill. Nobody is immune from the blade, and death comes with consequence.
Explorers
With over 30,000 true-to-canon rooms and more than 300 comprehensive zones, there is plenty to explore. With secrets to discover, hidden doors to find and ruins leftover from the Age of Legends, you'll most likely find these wanderers and cartographers in the strangest places...
Questers
For lovers of scavenger hunts and puzzles, adventures await! From carefully crafted tasks designed to help new players learn the game, to master-level trips filled with fame and glory, every level of player has been given consideration. These keen individuals also never miss a chance at a Watcher-run global live-action quest!
Trophy Hunters
Otherwise known as 'smobbers', these PvE powerhouses like to spend their time hunting strong NPCs and monsters, aka 'supermobs'. Smobs require specific tactics to defeat and rewards for killing them are varied and many. Whether the solo or group type, there are upwards of 100 smobs to challenge spread throughout the world.
Socialites
Our game has a close-knit community of people from all walks of life. Many players simply enjoy spending a little downtime meeting new people, hanging out with old friends, and making new ones. Both IC and OOC opportunities await for casual conversation, fiery debates and player-run activities.
Merchants
A thriving economy exists in the sale and trade of goods. Merchants have many options; they can set up a booth in the bazaar, go to the markets, buy and sell from wandering vendors, or haggle with other players. Particularly dedicated brokers can be seen in the halls of the Kandori Merchant guild, earning their master chains.
Scholars
Keepers of knowledge, these players can frequently be found trying to figure out the inner workings of the game. Data gathering, research, and testing is their passion. Generally helpful, they can often be observed sharing ideas, keeping the wiki up-to-date, or showing new players the ropes.
Crafters
WoTmud features multiple crafting guilds, including smelting, woodworking, and leatherworking. Players can be found making weapons and armor, as well as various other everyday items to use, sell, or trade. Using turn-point tokens (acquired through trade or PK) and other supplies, they can craft some of the most rare weapons found in game.
