Slothmud was started in late 1991 by a couple of college students and opened to players in early 1992. It is a descendent of the DikuMUD gamma 0.0 game codebase (see the title page for the authors of DikuMUD). It has been running continuously ever since.
From the beginning, SlothMUD has had a unique world. In the 15 years this world has grown to immense size, now comprising five continents and three islands.
The name "Sloth" was chosen to embody the original philosophy of the mud, which was to make everybody's lives as easy as possible. This convenience is embodied in commands such as "hunt" and "scan", as well as a multiclass system that allows each player to eventually access a great deal of the available class abilities.
SlothMUD turned into Sloth II when it changed ownership. It then became Sloth III after a set of vast, world-altering changes initiated by the current administrator, Jake.
SlothMUD III has since become SlothMUD after another set of a vast, world-altering changes after a solid twelve year run with the same playerbase. This multiplayer free online rpg game has since increased its popularity and player base. With each addition, positive change, and new player this free online game has no end in its sight.
