The Raven

The Raven is a MUD server made in C++ using the latest C++11 standard and elements from the Boost library.

MUD

What is a MUD?

A MUD is a kind of online game, where many people can connect at the same time, socialising and adventuring together.

If it sounds like a modern-day massively online games, it's because MUDS are the forerunners of those modern games. The biggest difference is first that a MUD is almost always text-only while modern games are graphical. The second difference is one of scale: A MUD mostly have below one hundred players online at the same time, while modern games are called massive because that's what they are.

For more information about MUDs, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MUD
