MIST used MUDDL, a definition language written by Richard Bartle and Roy Trubshaw, which was originally used to implement MUD1.[1] While there were several other MUDs written in MUDDL, ROCK, BLUD, and UNI being the most notable ones, they all ran on the mud account which was deleted in October 1987 when Richard Bartle left the University of Essex, making MIST the only MUD left running on the Essex network. MIST, under the management of Michael "Lorry" Lawrie ran until the machine that hosted it, a DEC-10, was superseded in 1991.[2]

MIST was notorious for its "dog eat dog" and "anything goes so long as some more powerful character doesn't decide otherwise" philosophy, as well as its unparalleled bloodthirstiness.[3] Wanton killing, deception, and using magic powers to compel players to attack others without warning, were common and acceptable.[4]
