MUME: Multi users in Middle Earth (sic) is an 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) and T.A. 2950 (just after to the events of The Hobbit).[2]
