berserker Thumbnail


  • 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.
