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>
- look at <any object>
- 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.
