Welcome

Edit this article on Github.

FluffOS is the next generation of MudOS. It starts as an collection of patches on top of last release of MudOS. It has gone through major rewrites and bugfixes and maintained backward compatibility with existing mudlibs.

I’m always eager to help people migrate to FluffOS, if you have an working mud that you want to migrate (hack, even if you just have bunch of files laying around, send it over nonetheless!), send to me and I will make it run on FluffOS! Feel free to contact me for help. The goal is to migrate everyone!
