Before entering the world of MUDs, it is highly suggested that you get the MUCK documents from either piggy.ucsb.edu or glia.biostr.washington.edu. They have a document called mudenc.txt and mudref.txt. Those two files tell you a little on how to get around on a MUCK and how to MUCK. Also, for those of you who wish to program on a MUCK, you might want to get the following text files from the sites: mufman, muftut, mufref. There is also 'info new.muf' and 'info new.prims' on the MUCK for the TinyMUCK 2.2fb4.2f for the FB server's primatives that tend to make a few more things easier (or harder) for the programmer.
