Roundtable: Who doesn't love a good villain?

Some of the most exciting plots for players are those that include a menacing, evil, wicked villain (or villains), but these are some of the hardest plots to run because they can be so fraught with GMing pitfalls and disasters.

Community MUSHlist

Submitted by javelin on Fri, 2008-01-11 13:35

Several MUSHers suggested that it would be nice to have a new MUSH-specific mudlist where people could submit their game information (a la mudconnector) and where the information could be shared and exported (e.g., via RSS).

So now we've got one, hosted here. Click on "MUSHlist" in the navigation menu to see the current list.

To add your MUSH to the list, choose "Create content" and select "MUSHlist entry" and fill out the form. Once you submit it, it'll be reviewed by a MUSHlist editor (to prevent spam) and approved into the MUSHlist.

Snapshot of MUSHes

Ulmo@BeleriandMUSH went onto the Mud Connector website and looked up all the MUSHes on 1 November 2007, and check their server type. Here's the list, for the curious (note that neither Ulmo nor I are maintaining any kind of mudlist, this is a one-time snapshot!):
