Adventures Unlimited is a text-based multi-user dungeon (MUD) set in the fantasy world of Tharel. MUDs have been around since the early 1980's. This MUD started in 1998 and officially opened in early 1999. It is based on the ROM2.4b6 codebase but has many coded features not available with the stock distribution.
Based in the land of Tharel, players have the opportunity to experience the world as one of 9 different classes and 17 different races. All character classes have unique abilities. The mythos of Tharel provides 12 unique gods and goddesses with a temple dedicated to the worship of each deity. Characters may freely choose their religion. Religious beliefs in the world of Tharel are the cause of many conflicts and the foundation for roleplay for the majority of the playerbase.
Five different clans are available to characters who join the player killing system. Each clan is based on religion and an attempt to further the ethos of their god or gods through roleplay. All player killing is supported through a motivation and justification system. Each attack must fit with the attacking character's written motivations. Each justification note is reviewed by the staff of AU to ensure that players stick to their intended roleplay direction. Besides attacking each other, clans can conquer and defile areas, invade other clan halls, and participate in a competition that occurs every two months called the Days of Redemption.
The land of Tharel contains over 17,000 rooms, of which more than 80% are original. Player killing is optional. We encourage roleplay from all characters, however it is not mandatory outside of participation in PK. Our convenient automapper is helpful in learning the lay of the land and understanding the surroundings in all areas.
