Mordor is a MUD server,
which allows multiple individuals to
log in and play. This is often called the
Each of these programs require:
- A Computer --
Any machine that can run
BSD-derived UN*X or WindowsNT.
This can be anything from a Sun
workstation, to a simple Intel 386 with about 4 Megs of RAM. Yes, this means that you can
use your 486 or Pentium. You can also run this on a UN*X shell account
from nearly any Internet Service Provider.
There are also
versions that run on IRIX, SysV, ULTRIX, HPUX, and NeXT.
- A C compiler (optional on Linux) --
This is usually included with your
operating system if you run UN*X. Since both of these programs are
written in ANSI C
you need to compile it to make it executable. The GNU project provides
excellent software (including compilers) for a UN*X operating system, and
best of all it's FREE.
If you are running WinNT you will need to get a commercial C compiler
such as Visual C++ or Turbo C.
Binaries are provided for only Linux.

- A Connection to the 'Net --
This is only
you want others to be able to play your MUD. You can do this with something as simple as
a SLIP or PPP connection, though you will want to have as fast a
connection as possible. For example, a 14.4Kbps SLIP connection will
limit you to around 10 players. If you are only using Muddle then you dont
really need to worry about the speed of the connection as much.
- A Load of Patience and Time to Waste --
easy to do this you know.
