What is Midgaard?

Midgaard logo

Midgaard is our homage to the text MUDs of decades past. Running on the TriadCity platform, it's an emulation of the core World of the classic DikuMUD adventure tradition circa 1994.

Midgaard is a medieval-themed World derived principally from Tolkien and Dungeons & Dragons. There are castles, dragons, Inns serving ale, magical fireballs, dwarves and elves and Warriors and Clerics. You go there to kill the monsters — although the monsters have a good chance of killing you. Retro rules!

Midgaard is a labor of love for us. It's where many of us first encountered MUDs and were astonished by their engrossing play and extraordinary potential. It's full of clever ideas, many of which became standards as the tradition evolved. Most importantly, it's fun!
