MUD (Multi-user Dungeon)
A realtime internet game where users can adopt aliases and participate in adventures and combat. As the name implies, any number of players can be on the site at once. Some MUDs rival RPGs in complexity while others focus strictly on person-to-person combat or social interaction.
