Materia Magica is a free text-based multiplayer game based around traditional fantasy themes, where a tight-knit and welcoming community is presided over by an active Immortal staff.
The game world of Alyria is ever-expanding and vast, and new content is added regularly. There are over ten million locations, tens of thousands of items and creatures, thousands of individually written quests, and hundreds of areas. The choices you make shape the world around you. Run for Mayor of Rune, and administrate the city to your preference. Create a clan with friends and challenge the supremacy of others, or co-exist peacefully. Build your own, permanent houses and clanhalls; areas that will stand forever in game. Prefer to be out on the open seas? Sail the Alyrian seas and battle pirates, whether they be players or NPCs, plundering their wrecked ships for riches!
The game has over 200 bosses and numerous runs. Descend into the lair of the Ice Witch or the Hydra's Den. Plumb the depths of abandoned Clanhalls for lost treasures. Explore the forgotten Pyramid, or battle the madness of Kessarian's Dungeon, Hotel Hello or the Isle of the Sea Hag. For the truly elite, the Archlich Jhepp and the Megafather await. These are but a fraction of the enemies to find in-game.
Online for over fifteen years, Materia Magica is one of the most venerable and stable MUDs available. And it's free! Join us for a short while, or stay for years, whatever your wish. Come visit!
