Hark, adventurer! There are dragons to be defeated and loot to be gained. The world of Alyria needs you!


New to MUD Games?

Materia Magica is an old-school, text-based fantasy game — if you’re used to modern, 3D video games, some things might seem a little strange or unfamiliar. Connecting to a MUD like Materia Magica requires a client, and below you can find a few options we recommend for getting started.

The game will teach you lots of basic commands and rules when you first join and create a new character, but you can find more information in the Adventurer’s Guide. In the world of Alyria, the more you know, the more fun you’ll have (and the better you’ll survive!).

Remember: things may seem strange and challenging at first, but there’s always other players adventuring in the game. If you have a question, just ask someone in chat!
