This text based multiplayer free online rpg game was started in late 1991 by a couple of college students and
opened to players in early 1992. It is a descendent of the DikuMUD gamma 0.0 game codebase
(see the title page for the authors of DikuMUD). It has been running continuously ever since.
From the beginning, SlothMUD
has had a unique world. In the 15 years this world has grown to immense size, now comprising
five continents and three islands.
The name "Sloth" was chosen to embody the original philosophy of this text based rpg game, which was
to make everybody's lives as easy as possible. This convenience is embodied in commands such
as "hunt" and "scan", as well as a multiclass system that allows
each player to eventually access a great deal of the available class abilities.
SlothMUD turned into Sloth II when it changed ownership. It then became Sloth III
after a set of vast, world-altering changes initiated by the current administrator,
SlothMUD III has since become SlothMUD after another set of a vast, world-altering changes after a solid
twelve year run with the same playerbase. This multiplayer free online rpg game has since increased its popularity
and player base. With each addition, positive change, and new player this free online game has no end in its sight.
