WCNH MUSH code open-sourced

Submitted by Eratl on Tue, 2013-07-23 16:54

Some of you may know, or have even played on, my most recent MUSH, Wing Commander: New Horizon. I shut the game down a few months ago due to inactivity, but as of today you can now download all of the source code and a 'sanitized' version of the game database (missing player information, log contents, etc, but all code, rooms, ships, etc are there).

Hiring Builders for an RL City and Describers (no building)~ Willing to Teach

Submitted by MrWigggles on Wed, 2012-06-13 04:16

Heya,

Navitas: City Limits is seeking builders, to help dig the
two grid areas. We also need various supplementary room descriptions. We're
willing to teach new builders how to build, as well as the 'do's and
donts' for describing rooms.

Navitas can be consider an alternative to World of Darkness games. Its
a contemporary urban fantasy high action theme, based on the
Dresden Files novel series.

Navitas is also hoping to employ a 'destructible grid', in where player's
role playing, can impact the grid itself. This requires a fair bit of work,

Bleach the Beginning has shut down.

Bleach the Beginning has shut down. It was open for about three years. Sadly the lack of leadership from the Headwizard, and the contentious player culture has caused the staff of BtB to shut down the game.

The game thanks to our gracious Hoster, Cooee, will be staying up until March 2012 as a social RP mu*.

We were working on Bleach 2.0, and we're still doing so.

If you wish to see what Bleach 2.0 is up to, you're welcome to visit our forum at :

Imperium Romanorum Project: Part III (History & Historiography; Theme)

Submitted by Tyr on Thu, 2011-08-04 14:24

In my first post, I discussed briefly the setting for the game, and in my second, I talked very briefly about the "feudal anarchy" which was said to have spread across Europe in the 10th and 11th centuries. I'll talk a little bit more about that here, and will get into more depth about the history of 12th-century Europe, as well as some of the reasons why I chose this period and not, as I discussed in my first post, the 10th or 11th centuries.

Imperium Romanorum Project: Part II (Narrative, Community, Administration)

Submitted by Tyr on Fri, 2011-07-29 12:02

This is the second post in what will hopefully continue to be an ongoing series dealing with the development of ''Imperium Romanorum'', the MUSH I'm currently working on. Part I was an overview of the project. This will deal with narrative and RP, the community features that hopefully will enhance the experience of playing the game, and the administrative structure and techniques that will ideally avoid the pitfalls that have faced game admins in the past. A quick note on terminology: HC means Historical Character, and OC means Original Character.

Imperium Romanorum Project: Part I (Introduction and Project Overview)

Submitted by Tyr on Thu, 2011-07-28 12:45

As many know, I have been working for some time on a historical-themed game set in Medieval Germany, around the mid-12th Century, which I am calling Imperium Romanorum, which is how it was known contemporaneously. Although my historical studies have been getting the best of me, I've been meaning to blog about the process of developing the game for some time as a means of keeping track of where I'm at on the project as well as inviting feedback on my ideas for the game. This will be the first post in what will hopefully turn into an ongoing series, assuming I can keep myself on-track.

Corpolitick 2.2 - The Game of Organizational Dominance(TM)(R)(C)

In the not-too-distant future, power is forged, wielded, shattered, reforged, sharpened, wielded again, broken again, and hung on the wall as a Relic of Mystery by Organizations, ranging from tiny partnerships to mammoth multicontinent corporations, from strange clans to stranger nonprofit NGOs, from Amalgamated Marketing Marketing ("We only sell salesmen who sell salesmen") to PhytoCarn Products ("Animal-based health food for plants") to Geeks'R'Us to Walt-You-Will-Have-Fun-Corporate-World.
