QuickMUD is derived from ROM 2.4b6, Merc 2.1 and DikuMUD


This MUDbase is some russificated by Prool. Enabled full 8-bit characters, UTF-8, koi8-r and other codepages



QuickMUD / ROM is a "multi-user dungeon", a text-based MMORPG. ROM is well-known for its fast-paced and exciting combat system. It also happens to be the initial codebase for Carrion Fields, the greatest MUD of all time.

Docker Image

You can run the pre-built docker image with the following command:

docker run -d -p 4000:4000 avinson/rom

After that, connect like this:

telnet localhost 4000

To make your first immortal character, just start as a mortal character, play at least as far as level 2, and then edit the player file and change your level. (After the first immortal, you can advance the rest)

QuickMUD is a Rom24b6 codebase with the following major features added:

  • OLC 1.81
  • Lope's Color 2.0
  • Erwin's Copyover
  • Erwin's Noteboard
  • Color Login

It is still basically a "stock" ROM server. The functionality of the code hasn't been modified much except for the addition of OLC. Changes are pretty much limited to cosmetic features, like color login. If you want to start your own ROM based server, this code can give you a quick start with some standard 'extra features' already implemented. However, for the sake of the mudding community at large, don't just download this code, compile it, and advertise it on MUD websites as "a highly modified ROM codebase". Spend some time developing it. The world doesn't need another cookie-cutter MUD.

This is the ROM 2.4 beta version of Merc 2.1 base code. Please read the file in /Rom24/doc called rom.license before using this program.

Merc Diku Mud is a Diku Mud with many enhancements and contributions. See our 'contrib.txt' and 'help merc' for acknowledgements. Send us your contribution, and you'll be in there too!

Enjoy our mud. May your visit here be ... Mercenary.

This is the 2.1 production release of Merc.
