Running a MUD on a group of #RaspberryPi boards

MUDs, federation and multiple Raspberry Pi boards | Raspberry Alpha Omega

Frank, over at Raspberry Alpha Omega, is thinking about running a MUD (Multi User Dungeon) across a ‘federation’ of Raspberry Pi servers. He’s written a great article on a possible approach and his reasons for doing so. Read the article here

Duncan Jauncey has previously published a post on his blog about a Java-powered MUD he is running on one of his Pis. Read more here

It’s inspired me to look into the possibility of compiling and running a different type of MUD, a MUSH on the Pi. Stay tuned!

    Now you have pointed me at the concept of MUSH, which I had somehow managed to avoid encountering before.

    A multi-player, collaborative, creative textual environment which includes its own meta language for extending the environment. Now I feel compelled to join together the work I’m doing on new languages for Raspberry Pi programming with distributed textual games. D’oh.

      It’ll be interesting to see who comes up with what. I used to play a Star Trek MUSH (years ago) that’s still going so I’m going to see if their source is available. Probably have to build it on the Pi (cross compiling is still a mystery to me – not the concept, the actual doing of it) which should be… interesting…
