Looking for a place where everybody knows your name? Sick and tired of the cold sterile feeling you can get from MMORPGs? Want to take up a hobby that jogs your imagination, sharpens your reading skills, and vastly improves your typing skills? Looking for a mud with (mostly) friendly people and a dedicated staff who treats (almost) everyone as human? 

More than a simple internet game, Waterdeep - City of Splendors has been a way of life for hundreds of people since its creation more than 17 years ago. Having never been shut down, Waterdeep maintains its unique and hugely modified RoT codebase, as well as its original ownership and distinctly "death metal" feel. With a devoutly dedicated staff and player base, Waterdeep is a MUD whose doors will be open as a home to new and old players alike for years to come. 


Waterdeep's story is largely based on a Forgotten Realms themed roleplaying atmosphere with a very open approach to personal and global roleplaying - meaning even a single player's roleplaying experience has a chance to change the MUD! In addition to our Forgotten Realms themes, there is a mix of Final Fantasy 6 & 7 steampunk seen throughout the world, with entire areas dedicated to the theme. However, while role-play is highly encouraged, it is not (nor will ever be) mandatory - your gameplay style is your own. 

While Waterdeep's code is based on RoT 1.4 and 1.5, it has been extensively modified over its long history and rebuilt into a world containing over 80 original areas with 55,000+ rooms. We still maintain a 2-tier/101 level reroll system and many of the old areas; however, significant changes have gone into the surrounding gameplay. We offer 23 unique races and 15 total classes - 7 basic classes for 1st tier and 8 advanced classes for 2nd tier. Along with this, Waterdeep is home to a slew of extracurricular activities including (but not limited to): 1 v 1 & Free-For-All Arena Matches with Leader Board, Organized Team Player-Killing Matches, Free-For-All world Player Killing with Leader Board, Leveler-Based and Hero-Based Equipment Runs, Questing for all levels, Area Quests, a unique Gambling System, Fully-Customizable Player Housing, Customizable and fully-functioning Airships with Air-Battle capabilities, Player-led Clans, and much much more. 

We welcome everybody to come give us a try; we have a very accommodating staff and player base, and all are willing to help new players get started.
