Elendor is a MUSH (Multi-User Shared Hallucination) server based on J.R.R. Tolkien's writings, especially The Lord of the Rings.[1][2][3] Users create characters according to the theme of the books, depending on the culture and race of choice. The purpose is to create a role-playing environment as close as possible to Tolkien's Middle-earth.

Established in October 1991, Elendor is the oldest and most popular Tolkien-based MUSH on the internet.[1][3] As of May 2005, the number of registered users in the game was over 2,000. Middle-earth from Belegaer to the Sea of Rhûn can be visited,[4] there are different descriptions for different times at the day and seasons.[4]
