CoffeeMUD

CoffeeMUD is the official production server for the CoffeeMUD codebase. We try to showcase some of the versatility of the CoffeeMUD codebase, while adding new features to improve our happy little world. Many of the features of CoffeeMUD can be manipulated by INI settings or through clever building of areas. CoffeeMUD is a fully functional MUD where players can explore the vast world of Alramidgaardia, rich with a mixture of imported areas, modified imported areas and original content to provide many adventuring opportunities.


History

The first full-time CoffeeMUD server started running in early 2002 with the development of version 2.0 (1.2) of the codebase. At that time it consisted entirely of stock Merc/Dikumud areas that had been imported. These were very quickly expanded to include areas from other abandoned muds. Since then, talented builders have worked until over half of the 250 areas are of original authorship, as well as "CoffeeMudifying" the existing stock areas to take advantage of the features of the codebase.

Address

CoffeeMUD now offers a multitude of login options to address a variety of playstyles. All are available at coffeemud.net, but the different ports have different play options.

Port Account Multiplay Features
23 Standard Yes (3) This is the standard version of CoffeeMUD, with optional Player Kill toggle.
2323 Standard Yes (3) This is the standard version of CoffeeMUD, with optional Player Kill toggle.
2324 Standard Yes (3) This is a persistent Player Kill port. Your Player Kill flag may not be toggled, but you will not experience Hunger or Thirst on this port.
2325 Hardcore Yes (3) This port uses a separate account (hardcore) for your characters. Experience rewards are tripled for kills. However, any death will result in permanent deletion of the character.
2326 Standard No This is a heavy Role-Playing Port.
  • Most CHANNELS are disabled except the NEWBIE channel, which should only be used for NEWBIE questions like HOW DO I DRINK MILK FROM A COW?
  • TELLS are also disabled.
  • You must introduce yourself to fellow players to see them appear on the WHO screen (which only works with fellow RPers).
  • Most statistics are displayed descriptively instead of numerically.
  • Experience is deferred. This means that you must TRAIN with someone of your class (or a class guildmaster) to gain experience, which you may only do once per MUDDAY (real hour).
  • You gain Roleplaying Experience (RXP) for being social, talking to other players, using SOCIALS and a few other things. This experience is also deferred, so you wont see it rewarded until you TRAIN.

MUD Clients

There are many good MUD clients out there, but here is a listing of clients some of our players prefer:

During character creation, if you get hung, hit ENTER or Y (for yes), assuming that the client is masking a prompt question. There are other non-MUD-standard functions that don't perform properly as well. However, many of these issues will be fixed in CoffeeMUD version 5.9.7.
MUSHClient [MUSHclient] Windows, Linux (Wine)
Portal-M [[1]] Windows This is a 64-bit version of the old Portal client.

Note: If you are using iOS 11, and find that your quotes aren't working correctly, it may be because of SMART PUNCTUATIONS is enabled under the Settings>General>Keyboard.
