Welcome to Xyllomer

This is the homepage of Xyllomer, an English language LP MUD running on DGD from a physical base at the University of Paderborn in Germany. The MUD machine is owned independantly of the university by an international club made up from past and present players and wizards.

It offers a huge complex world in a fantasy setting, where roleplay is strongly emphasized. We don't have any global channels or shouts, but a wide variety of guilds, player-owned houses and ships, and it is entirely up to you if you partake in the constant struggle of the 'good' vs. the 'dark' side, thus risking your life in the hope your god may protect you - or if you prefer to stand aside and dedicate your time to music and beer, peacefully study the arcane art of magic or train your mind until you are in perfect control of your body.

The world governs itself through the players, which elect judges, create the law and live the role. Xyllomer has a very active Wizard and Player community that meets frequently for real life parties.

Be a part of this! Join us on Xyllomer.

The Mud Concept

A mud can take on many forms. However, common between all muds is the ability for many people to interact within the game at the same time. MUD is the acronym for Multi User Dungeon. As the name implies, the first muds was set in a fantasy environment. Even though many still are, it is far from the only environment possible. What kind of world you play in is entirely up to the administrators of the game to decide. It can be anything from a science fiction universe in the far future to a medieval world with castles and dungeons. This particular world, Xyllomer, is set in a medieval fantasy environment.

You play the role of an adventurer. As you explore the world you will meet other adventurers set out to complete quests, engage in combat, or just to meet new people.

It is up to you to choose your friends and enemies. As you treat others, they are likely to treat you. Some creatures may prove hard to deal with and some might be willing to trade. A few will flee as you approach while others will stay and fight. As you gain experience as an adventurer you will get better at the skills that you choose to practise. Whether to wield powerful magic or lethal weapons, is again your choice.

Maybe you wish to do both...
