Sojourn, a MUD
(Multi User Dungeon
). The original Sojourn was one of the most popular Diku
MUDs which focused on hack 'n slash
and roleplaying, based loosely around the Forgotten Realms
. It has since then died but created many hybrids
. Initially it split into two seperate MUDs, Duris
. Toril was for roleplaying
, Duris for killing. Neither MUD exists these days, but there is a Duris2 and a new Sojourn (which is more like Toril), plus a Basternae2.
Sojourn and it's clones have caused many people
, mainly students
, to drop out
of high school, fail their college classes and to generally screw up
their lives simply so they can have another few hours online
. It has been known to cause these people to stay up for days on end MUDding.
Many online games
have this effect, though.
