 jargon, node: MUD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Historically, MUDs (and their more recent progeny with names of MU- form) derive from a hack by Richard Bartle and Roy Trubshaw on the University of Essex's DEC-10 in the early 1980s; descendants of that game still exist today and are sometimes generically called BartleMUDs.
There is a widespread myth (repeated, unfortunately, by earlier versions of this lexicon) that the name MUD was trademarked to the commercial MUD run by Bartle on British Telecom (the motto: "You haven't *lived* 'til you've *died* on MUD!"); however, this is false -- Richard Bartle explicitly placed `MUD' in the public domain in 1985.
Around 1991 there was an unsuccessful movement to deprecate the term MUD itself, as newer designs exhibit an exploding variety of names corresponding to the different simulation styles being explored.

Most MUDs support navigation via commands such as "north", "south", "ne" (north-east), "up", "down", "enter room", etc. As the user enters a room, the MUD issues a text description of the room, a list of people/agents/objects in the room and a list of other places that you can go to from there.
