MUME, Multi-Users in Middle-earth, is a free multiplayer roleplaying game based upon J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth that has been continuously enhanced since the fall of 1991.
In MUME players can explore more than 26,000 open rooms and live in this meticulously crafted world during its late Third Age, and possibly join the Epic War between the forces of the Dark Lord and the armies of the West. [Do you want to learn more?]

Unfortunately the MUME machine ran out of disk space today around 3:30 pm UTC.
To recover some corrupted data we had to go back to an earlier backup (from
around 2:30 pm UTC).
Sorry for the inconvenience!
