Midden-aarde MUD (Dutch: Middle-earth MUD) is a Dutch MUD made by "Irmo" and several other programmers. In 2009 the unofficial test version was launched, with gameplay in Middle-earth as a Hobbit, Men, Dwarf, Elf or Dúnedain-Ranger. Later that year the project was canceled for a time. But since 2010 the game is play-able again. The MUD orginally only included the Shire, but now also includes gameplay in Bree-land, Rivendell and Ost-in-Edhil.
