A Historical DikuMUD List

(Based on the 2002-01-17 compilation by AxL)

This list was checked on Sun Jun 30 2013. Any muds that were were unreachable by DNS, IP address, or webpage, and could not be located with a simple web search were removed from the list. If you run a Diku Mud that has withstood the test of time and think it should be on this copy of the list, or if your mud has moved, please let Rahj know about it. The cutoff date is 1993. Please note that this list is not the official " AxL's Historical DikuMUD List". AxL doesnt control this list, and Rahj doesnt control the official one. Be sure to send your updates to AxL as well!

AxL's Disclaimer from the original list:

"This compilation is an ongoing list of the DikuMUDs that have withstood the test of time. This is not meant to be elitist in any way, it is just interesting to keep track of where the oldest muds are running. If you feel there is a mud that deserves to be on the list send me mail and tell me. After all, I am sure that I may have forgotten one or two, or not know that one is around anymore.

However, any mud that does not adhere to the DikuMUD license agreement, regardless of age, will _not_ be listed. This has always been the case, but now it is stated formally.

Note: I do not have access or control of the copy of this list found at dikumud.com. I will try to get an update put there, but this list as posted to various spots around the internet is the official source."
