What is 3 Kingdoms

3 Kingdoms is a Multi-User Dungeon, a text-based game. This means that instead of seeing the room you're standing in, you read about it (much like a book). It is not unlike the roleplaying game, Dungeons and Dragons, as you can find dungeons (and dragons) on the 3 Kingdoms MUD by exploring the various room and item descriptions that have been written (though roleplaying is not required).

As a player on 3 Kingdoms, 3K for short, you're able to quest, fight, and most importantly engage with the community. There are a plethora of chatlines available on this mud to help you learn the ways of 'mudding' or simply chat.

Speaking of fighting, 3K is considered to be a hack-and-slash type MUD. Meaning, you explore and fight enemies to gain experience, which in-turn you can use those experience points to gain levels, etc. Additionally, there are various guilds to join while playing, it's merely your preferance with how you like to play and which guild theme is most intriguing to you. Keep in mind that you're not tied to any guild if you later decide you'd like to try out a different one.

You may be wondering, "why is it called 3 Kingdoms?" It's due to the three primary realms that you'll eventually choose to explore on a regular basis, a realm of 'Fantasy', of 'Chaos', and of 'Science'. Each realm offers a unique genre of areas and quests to explore as well as unique enemies to fight. When you first begin your adventures on 3K, you'll be tied to an area called Newbieland. This area offers a variety of smaller and easier sub-areas for you to explore and become more acquainted with what to expect with the rest of the mud.

This website was created as a helpful guide to learn where specific areas can be found, how specific quests can be solved, and much more. Initially created as a personal notes website of the game, it has evolved into a resource guide for many players.

Yep, this is us...

What is this site? Aren't there enough guides, wiki’s, and personal sites on how to play muds? Yeah, probably...despite that, we still wanted this site. One place to go (for us), and hopefully be able to access it all. Consider this site to be our personal notes section and we're sharing it with whomever may be interested.

We said muds, but it’s really just one that we play (since around 1996) and you can’t convert us. Between the two of us...he's addicted to being on the mud and knows a lot of the ins and outs of 3K while he masters the guilds he's chosen; she, on the other hand, logs on to quest, explore, and find marbles, and updates this site...

For our maps, we use Squid on a Chromebook. Feel free to harass or just normally contact us if you have any updates or notice something that needs fixing.



Began back in 1996, like most everyone else and kept playing, every day. He's really good at knowing things too. I wouldn't call him a number cruncher, but he can figure out how to make the most gxp from any guild he joins.

He likes lots of different video games, torturing his wife with zombie games, making bots, maps, and playing D&D with the kids (yeah, we have 5 of those). Oh, he LOVES naps and coffee! Let's not forget beer too, it soothes the soul.

Originally began back in 1996, like most everyone else. Played off and on, then started fresh in 2008. Took another few years break, and picked it back up again (that's kind of how I roll). But THIS time, in 2020, I really started to learn the mud!

I like music! Apple Playlist (Spotify Playlist is here), playing animal crossing and guitar, crocheting things, photography, and most of all making this website!
Like, seriously, I'm addicted to making this site. In case you're curious, I use "vanilla html", no framework. And I'm still learning as I code.

She plays...
Locrian Bard
Sagittarii Knight
Malice Hardcore Knight
Fennec Bladesinger
Valkyrja Guild hopper
