Ihttp://discworld.starturtle.net/lpc/ know neither how many Discworlders be about Mercury, nor how many people on Mercury are familiar with MUDs, so I figured I'd just ask outright. Thanks to a certain denizen of the boards, I've recently become less interested in the Discworld series than I am an actual fan. I'm only just starting out in the series, but I do really love it. I've been "around it" for quite a long while though. So you kinda maybe get what kind of familiarity I have with it. (I have a book ordered, pending shipment atm, actually.)

As for MUDs...I have zero familiarity with them—period.

Still, I stumbled across this and thought it looked pretty awesome. Mercurycraft seems to be a success as far as a gamer group being grounded on Mercury goes, so I thought I'd throw this out there and see who thinks what about it.

I likewise have no experience of MUDs, but I do like the Discworld stories (and have access to most, if not all, of them, if details are needed for the game) so I'm certainly willing to have a go if we can get a group together.

I'm game for anything Discworld-related, but I have no experience with MUDs either.

I'm not even sure what they are, unless they're some kind of MMO.

They are a type of MMO. Apparently they are entirely text-based. So...a threeway cross between DnD Online, Command Line Interface and IRC? Maybe?
