Magnificant MUDdy Musings
The Evennia MUD Server has been progressing through beta at a good clip, with much effort spent on fine-tuning existing features, and expanding on the already excellent pile of documentation. Much to my delight, the current maintainer, Griatch, has started to blog about Evennia development. If you are at least somewhat interested in keeping an eye on a Python+Twisted+Django MUD server, consider taking a peek at Griatch’s Evennia Musings.
While the blog details Evennia development, there is a lot of valuable general-purpose stuff as well. Especially for those writing, or considering writing, a MUD server using some or all of the same building blocks.
For those who would like to harass the man (or the other users/developers) in person, stop by #evennia on FreeNode.
