Sauron has brought war to the Free People of Middle-earth. On the field of the Pelennor, at the gates of the great city of Minas Tirith, the battle of our time is being fought. Lothlorien, Thranduil's Kingdom, Dale and Erebor are also under siege.

Sauron will not stop until all of Middle-earth is his. Join him, or stand with those who are against him. The choice is yours!

The Two Towers MUD is a free Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game set entirely within Tolkien's world of Middle-earth, at the time of 'Lord of the Rings'. We have extensively re-created the lands of Middle-earth in a rich text environment, from Mithlond to Mordor and the lands of Harad beyond. With over 100,000 rooms and always growing, The Two Towers is a richly developed and highly interactive world. There are hundreds of quests, with rewards great and small, for you to discover.

The Two Towers has an active community of players from around the world who come together to play online. Players join together to create guilds, raid enemy lands, and more.

Online continuously since 1994, The Two Towers is one of the longest running multiplayer games on the internet and is maintained by a staff of hardworking volunteers who love Tolkien and multiplayer gaming.

05/10/23VildoranThe Dragon staff's singe ability is now usable by necromancers.
04/23/23LungorthinIt is now possible to shield all players in the same room as you via 'shield all'.
04/07/23VildoranDulgibar's cloak (from Barad-dur) can now be used to cast the light and dark spells.
04/02/23VildoranWe've changed the prompt at the end of submitting a bug/idea/etc. report. There are now three options to help route the report to the right location.
04/02/23GimilkhadTwo changes have been made to rider weapons: staves are no longer suited for mounted combat and the Globe of Protection is.
03/14/23LungorthinThe First Knight of Dol Amroth will no longer auto-attack impartially aligned players.
03/11/23LungorthinFeints that generate two lines of text will no longer indent an uneven amount of spaces after the first line. Instead it will now begin a newline without indentation, like many other professional abilities already do.
03/11/23LungorthinThe prompt's $I setting has been further expanded to include multinock. See 'help prompt' for its full functionality. On a side note, since I forgot to mention it in its last expansion, wimpy now also shows when set to off.
03/04/23OsseThe magnificent silver hammer now indicates its light/dark-emanating status in its short description.
02/26/23VildoranWe have improved upon the pelt crafting system from Calembel and added it to newbie areas. Qasim in Tarzhayan and a new NPC Sarina in Druwaur will both craft pelts into useful items. The quality of the armour is dependent on the pelt used, and some items are only craftable with higher-quality pelts.
12/28/22LungorthinThe prompt's $I setting has been further expanded to include the light, flame, dark and cloak spells. In addition, in the 'settings' menu there is now a new section dedicated to customization of what status effects players wish to show when setting $I in their prompt - these are grouped by type and can be toggled on or off as needed. See 'help prompt' and 'help settings' for details about these commands.
12/28/22OsseA new player legend has been added for Deboraha.
12/07/22VildoranThere are two new options for the 'travelto' command, 'travelto very slowly' and 'travelto next'. The first option drastically slows down your travel speed, and the second will move a single room when you are stopped along the travelto path.
11/25/22OsseThe worn-out messenger in the Tavern of Azmaroth in Far Harad will now see to the needs of minions who wish to advance.
