You can meet a lot of interesting people, such as the elves Cirdan, Elrond, Arwen, Celeborn or Galadriel, the leader of the Istari-Council Saruman, the mean trolls Bill, Bert and Tom or you can just buy a beer in Barliman's famous Inn. The mysterious Tom Bombadil sings his songs in the Old Forest, in which Old Man Willow has taken its roots long ago. And deep down in the earth, in the deepest mines of Moria, you may find a horror that was forgotten a long time ago. You will also meet many others from whom you heard the one or other tale or who are new to you.
You also can solve many quests. You can open ancient dwarven tombs or help a poor shopkeeper find something he lost, defeat fearsome enemies and search for ancient lore. Explore long forgotten towers and hidden places or just lean back with a good beer and listen to the one or other story, told by one of the storytellers.
Players can choose among several different races, each with some unique characteristics. The races are separated into three striving factions. Dwarves, Elves, Half-Elves, Hobbits and Men — among them are the shapeshifting Beornings — are eternally at war with the Orcs, Trolls and Black Númenóreans. Moreover, the orkish tribe of the Zaugurz is trying to expand its territory at the expense of the Tarkhnarb Orcs of Goblin Gate. Most of this conflict takes place to the east and south of the town of Bree, but rare raids or solitary agents of the Red Eye have made it to as far west as the Dwarven homes in the Blue Mountains.

- This is a command showing all the beings you have killed. As you kill more of a creature you learn less fighting it, as it becomes easier to predict and therefore get less experience from it.
- TRAVEL POINTS
(tps) are gained by going to
areas that no one else has been to for a while. This is promote adventuring
to new areas, since you need a certain amount of
infoto see how many you need.
Town (like Bree) or regions
(like the Shire) rigidly
enforce certain laws. This could include not killing local citizens, not
wielding a weapon without permission, or not casting
spells in the area under
these laws. People who break the law can be reported with
complainin the proper place, and then asked by guards to
followthem to jail for a time. Read
justicefor help on this.
- Players can mix herbs to create useful potions, deadly poisons, food, or other things. They can be made if you have the herbs and a herbal kit to mix them in. The formulas can be found by finding written recipes or by being taught them.
Butchering is a way to use a knife to
recover useful items from
the corpse of a game animal
you have killed: meat (you might want to
cookit on a pan before eating it), a pelt or fur you can sell… Butchering, and fishing with a fishing pole, are ways to produce food while you are out in the wilderness.
- Items that have become worn such as a dented piece of armor can be taken to an appropriate shopkeeper and fixed using the MEND command. It is much cheaper to buy a used piece of equipment and mend it than to buy a brand new piece of equipment. Pieces of equipment that fit someone of Hobbit size can also be refitted to your size using MEND.
- It is possible to ride some animals in MUME. By learning the RIDE skill you will be able to ride easier and fall off less often. Some creatures that can be ridden are mules, pack horses, Rohirrim warhorses, and — for Orcs — hungry wargs.
- Artefacts are unique, temporary relics of the glorious First Age that may only be owned by one person at a time. They are extremely powerful and are a privilege to temporarily posses, however briefly it may be.
- Homes may be bought by legendary characters among the Free People of Arda. Customize and furnish your home and allow your friends to visit.
