Advantages: Addictive, social, friendly, free
Disadvantages: Addictive, geeky

First, a MUD is a multi-user dungeon (or dimension). It's online, it's free, and it's role-playing (or killing stuff as fast and as often as you can...). What you get out of a MUD depends on what you want from it. The MUD I play, Discworld (based on ...

MuckWorld a new dimension on MUDs

Advantages: Very playable and a friendly atmosphere.
