Swords! Dragons! Castles! Magical fireballs! Inns with ale! Retro gaming at its most retro!
Midgaard is our homage to the text MUDs of decades past. Running on the TriadCity platform, it's an emulation of the classic DikuMUD adventure tradition circa 1994.
Because it's text, you read and type to play. It's not a 3D graphical environment such as World of Warcraft or Second Life. We find that our own imaginations are vastly more fulfilling. And, blind or visually impaired players are first-class citizens in TriadCity.
It's completely FREE to play, is blind-friendly, and has more women players than men. Best of all, it's friendly! For twenty years SmartMonsters has been free of the flame wars, misogyny, and mean-spiritedness prominent in some other environments. Even our bulletin boards are safe! Visit us today - we can't wait to meet you!
Midgaard is one World in the wider SmartMonsters Universe. From Midgaard your characters can freely enter the TriadCity or Dungeon Worlds, where the "laws of physics" are very different. With more to come.
