I was wondering if anybody out there knows of some Tolkien based LP muds.
I have a couple of addresses for a MUSH mud but I prefer the LP muds.
Thanks in advance for any info.

There is a Diku Mud called MUME (Multi user Middle-earth I think)

If one of the Mushes you have listed it LotR Mush at like address
140.142.113.151 4201 (or ANY 140..... address) its dead now

How about these, taken directly from my Tolkien computer games list
version 1.6d? A slightly earlier version can be found at
ftp://ftp.gmd.de/if-archive/info/tolkien-games.list

Some of the information, btw, is slightly outdated. I'll take care of
this shortly.

By the time LOTR MUSH closed, there were rumors of two new MUSHes
that were going to replace it (named LOTR MUSH and LOTR MUSH II,
respectively). What is the current status of these projects?
