MUD Commands

Most MUD’s share a common subset of commands, although different types also have different subsets of commands. For example, TinyMUD commands include “home”, “pose”, and the commands for editing the MUD database — “@describe”, “@create”, “@name”, “@open”, “@dig”, “@link”, and “@lock”.

Most MUD’s share some basic commands, including the following:

  • emote <any action>
  • go
  • help
  • look at <any object>
  • news
  • open
  • quit
  • say <something>
  • tell <user>
  • whisper <user>

Consult the documentation on the MUD you are interested in for more information on the commands that MUD supports.
