Xyllomer is a MUD, a text-based online role-playing game, founded in 1991 as PaderMUD (after the University of Paderborn, where it was hosted).[1] It was the first publicly accessible MUD to use Dworkin's Game Driver. It has been hosted in Germany throughout its history.

Game characteristicsEdit

XyllomerTemplate:'s setting is medieval fantasy in theme.[2] Roleplaying is enforced,[3] with strict penalties for improper out-of-character behavior, including conducting out-of-character communication through in-character channels.[2][4] Game mechanics are hidden behind abstractions so as to enhance immersiveness.[5]

Xyllomer supports a gameinfo command at its initial login screen to help new players orient themselves.[6]

HistoryEdit

In 1992, PaderMUD ported from its original LPMud 2.4.5 infrastructure to the CD gamedriver and mudlib.[7]

In 1993, PaderMUD ported from the CD driver to DGD, becoming the first public DGD MUD.[8]

In 1995, PaderMUD changed its named to Xyllomer.[9]

In 1996, Xyllomer moved to its own dedicated server, which has been funded by the players through donations. Previously, it had been hosted on a server owned by the University of Paderborn.[7]

In 2004, XyllomerTemplate:'s login screen was quoted as an example of civic-minded warnings issued to players regarding the time-consuming nature of MUDs.[10]

In 2010, Xyllomer has been upgraded to the latest DGD version and the wizards started to transform it into a permanent world setup.
