Do you mean a web-based MUD or a telnet-based one? If it's the
latter, you will need to use the socket library but I'm not sure
this kind of thing is PHP's strong point. For a web-based MUD, I
think it's a possible thing to do... I'm currently writing a MUD
engine in Python, which is also a scripting language and there are
already a few engines in that language. Check out the Mud-Dev-L
archive, someone posted a few links related to MUDs in PHP:
