Multi-Users in Middle-earth (MUME) is a free unlicensed MUD based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. It has been continually enhanced since its inception in the fall of 1991.[3]

In MUME players can explore and live in Middle-earth, and choose to join the epic war between the forces of Sauron and the armies of the free peoples.[3] The action takes place between T.A. 2850 (when Gandalf finds the key to Erebor right before The Hobbit) and T.A. 3019 (just after to the events of The Lord of the Rings).[2]
