3Scapes is up and running 24 hours a day every day and is absolutely free to play. All you need is Internet access and some imagination! You can log on using simple Telnet via 3scapes.org:3200. If you care to leverage more robust mudding functionality, you might want to try a MUD client that offers things like macros, triggers, and auto-mapping. You can find several such clients online and we’ve included links to a couple of our favorites below.

The first thing you’ll want to do once you log in is to create a player name and password. Names can be up to 11 alphabetic characters and your password should be something you can easily remember, but would be difficult for someone else to guess.
Once your character is created, you’ll find yourself at the beginning of Newbieland and given the opportunity to do a tutorial mini quest. This tutorial will give you a feel for how to explore the game and interact with NPCs (non-player characters) and it also might land you a nice sword for your efforts!
3Scapes also provides a rich help file system that’s useful for the brand new player and seasoned MUD veteran alike. Try perusing “help faq” after you’ve created your character for more information.
We hope you’ll log in and join us!
