History of Discworld MUD

 — the mud that launched a thousand telnets

Discworld MUD was founded in 1991 by David Bennett (Pinkfish) and was first opened to players in 1992. Discworld uses its own custom Mudlib which was released in 1993.

During its long history Discworld has been hosted on three different continents and on more machines than we can remember.

Over the years Discworld has been advertised and reviewed in a number of places:
