The TinyMARE MARE engine

What is TinyMARE?

TinyMARE (Multi-user Adventure Roleplaying Epic) is a text-based MUD server completely rewritten for efficiency using TinyMUSH and TinyMUSE as a basis for its game engine. The server is designed for creating an extensive, novelistic role-playing atmosphere supporting real-time combat, day & night, seasons, and global weather. Using a telnet client, players can log on to explore a virtual world, find magical items, learn skills and techniques, and group together to surpass obstacles you create in your own epic adventure.

What is a MARE?

A MARE (Multiuser Adventure Role-playing Epic) is like a MUD (Multi User Dungeon) and for those of you who are not familiar with MUDs think ZORK, for those of you who have not heard of ZORK, it is a text based game, sort of like a big chat-room with objects that you can interact with as well as your fellow players.
