The Builder Academy is foremost a training academy for anyone willing to learn or teach how to build a virtual World. Due to our success and the stagnation of the CircleMUD codebase we have also released our code for anyone desiring a stable and functional codebase.

tbaMUD is the continued development of the codebase formerly known as CircleMUD. And we use it to mean both the Academy for training, and the codebase that is made freely available to the community.

The most challenging aspect of running a mud is finding good builders. You will hear this from the admin of every MUD that has ever been. In the past it has always been up to each individual MUD to find and usually train their own builders. This works, but I think the MUDding community can come up with something better. That is why I created The Builder Academy.

TBA has trained 1000's of builders and has an extensive tutorial and help file system. No pressure, no deadline, just come learn, teach, or help develop the tbaMUD codebase. Give back to the
community we have all taken so much from. TBA is a MUDding resource. Take advantage of it so we can improve the entire MUDding community.

TBA can also be used by other MUDs as a builder's port. Just send us your newbie builders. We will teach them and then you can have them back with the zones they built.

We are always open to anyone willing to learn, teach, or help develop our newly released tbaMUD codebase (the codebase formerly known as CircleMUD).
