DUMII's Sister MUDS
DUMII is the original DUM-based mud, but there have been three other
games with the same code base. The first of these was CanDUMII, so named
for being based originally in Canada. The second was FranDUMII, and was
based in France. The third was Arcania, another Sweden-based game.
Of these, only FranDUMII is still active, but CanDUMII is also accessible.
They can be found at:
FranDUMII - frandum.fr (126.96.36.199) 2001
CanDUMII - candum.acc.umu.se (188.8.131.52) 2001

DUMII has its own built-in client; see "help built-in-client" for more
details on that. There is also the DUMII-specific client Soiled,
which you can use through your browser. Visit dum.acc.umu.se/soiled for
Other more generic mud clients you may like to try include:
TinyFugue (TF) MUD Client: http://tinyfugue.sourceforge.net/
Ashavar's Legacy (AL) MUD client: http://www.ashavar.com/client/
Zugg's MUD Client (zMUD): http://www.zuggsoft.com/zmud/
TF and AL are free; zMUD will require payment after a trial period.
DUMII has some support for the TinyFugue client. If you use it,
use the commands '/lp off' and '/wrap off'.
Automatic login for TF can be done with this:
/def -T'dum' -hLOGIN = %2 %; %3
/def -T'candum' -hLOGIN = %2 %; %2 %; %3
/addworld -Tdum dumii <name> <passwd> dum.acc.umu.se 2001
The candum world type can be used for both CanDUMII and FranDUMII.
Try to turn off HIDECODEWORD if you get a problem with
entering text after you've automatically logged in.
Although using a client is encouraged, remember that there are some
rules with regard to using clients. Avoid using text triggers and do
not make macros for walking. Do not use triggers that give your
character an unfair advantage in fighting or threatening situations.

OTHER MUD USERS
There are a few differences between DUMs and other muds that can cause
a bit of confusion with players from other muds. A few such examples are
listed here. The main difference is that almost everything useful in a DUM
is saved for higher levels. You have to earn just about everything.
SHOUT Shout is NOT heard by all players logged in; only those 'nearby'
TELL Tell is NOT heard by a player unless that player is in the same
room as you (some muds call this command whisper).
EXPERIENCE You do NOT get experience by killing monsters.
POSE This command is your only beginner command heard by all users.
It accepts no arguments, all it does is say 'Yahoo!' to everyone.
PAGE This is the only way (at the beginning) you can get a player's
attention if they are not in the same room as you.
You should also note that the command parser is very friendly. You can type
any number of letters in the command you want; the game will pick the closest
command to the one you type (that requires the number of arguments you type)
