Rapscallion is a client that allows you to
connect to MUDs (Multi-User Dimensions).
This broad term describes a wide variety of
environments to which many users can
simultaneously connect for interaction. MUDs
are commonly used for gamers to meet to play
text-based, role-playing, character-building
games, although they can be used for any type
of text-based community interaction.
Connecting to a MUD takes a little practice;
when you first use Rapscallion, try the Open
Special option in the File menu to get an
automatic connection setup. Rapscallion comes
with a highly extensive HTML help document
you can use to figure out how to master this
program and enter all kinds of online
communities. You can even use Rapscallion as
an IRC client for chatting.
