- noun A persona dedicated to scoring
points only (or, these days, primarily) from
killing. In MUD1, berserkers
were available as a separate stream, but there is no such
official recognition in MUD2: this is because the presence
of berserkers in MUD1 tended to make
the game be unplayable for other mortals,
so the facility was eventually switched off (except in some fight-oriented databases
written in MUDDL, eg. Mist).
As far as the MUD1 (and therefore the MUD2)
database was concerned, berserkers were inappropriate.
