What is 6dragons?


6dragons is a MUD, which is a text driven Multi User Dimension Game. Mud's work very well with screenreaders. The Staff of 6dragons are trying to make 6dragons the most blind friendly mud out there. We need your input to help us do that. Our game uses a medieval fantasy theme.

Why play 6dragons over another mud. What features for the seeing impaired are here?

1. The command Config Screenreader in the game will make output to your screenreader easier to hear.
2. Our wilderness ascii doesn't show up if you are config screenreader in the game.
3. We have a landmark command that makes finding areas within wilderness as easy as typing landmark area name. You then will be told which general direction to go, until you end up at your destination.
4. Combat spam reduced to a few lines. Instead of hearing 8 different attack lines. You will hear only one. Your pierce has hit the goblin 8 times for 350 total damage!
5. Sound Packs that can be downloaded to hear various sounds within the mud. See help sound in the game to learn how for your client.
