Sauron has brought war to the Free People of Middle-Earth. On the field of the Pelennor, at the gates of the great city of Minas Tirith, the battle of our time is being fought. Lothlorien, Thranduil's Kingdom, Dale and Erebor are also under siege.

Sauron will not stop until all of Middle-Earth is his. Join him, or stand with those who are against him. The choice is yours!

The Two Towers MUD is a free Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game set entirely within Tolkien's world of Middle-Earth, at the time of 'Lord of the Rings'. We have extensively re-created the lands of Middle-Earth in a rich text environment, from Mithlond to Mordor and the lands of Harad beyond. With over 100,000 rooms and always growing, The Two Towers is a richly developed and highly interactive world. There are hundreds of quests, with rewards great and small, for you to discover.

The Two Towers has an active community of players from around the world who come together to play online. Players join together to create guilds, raid enemy lands, and more.

Online continuously since 1994, The Two Towers is one of the longest running Multiplayer games on the internet and is maintained by a staff of hardworking volunteers who love Tolkien and multiplayer gaming.

DateUpdaterUpdate Text

09/26/22VildoranIt's now possible to ignore pipe spa... er... messages if you have the 'ignore_pipes' setting enabled.
09/26/22VildoranThere's now a colorcode you can configure for 'skill up' messages.
09/26/22VildoranFRs can no longer disguise as ER-only professions (and vice versa).
09/26/22VildoranGhosts can now use aliases. This won't take effect until next reboot.
09/19/22VildoranWe've added a new feature designed to help prevent players from disconnecting after periods during which they don't receive output from the MUD. This should be entirely invisible to you, but if that is not the case, please let us know.
09/19/22VildoranYou can now use 'mount call' between Dol Guldur and South Rhovanion.
09/19/22VildoranYou can now 'free' your mounts, causing them to run off into the wilderness.
09/19/22VildoranYou can now use the '-removedeleted' flag on the friend/enemy commands in order to remove any deleted characters from the list.
09/17/22VildoranA player's profession is no longer visible when they're a ghost.
09/17/22VildoranYou can now set a modifier for the 'sneeze' emote.
09/16/22VildoranWhen enchanting an item, it now takes on two additional idenifiers. You can now use 'enchanted <item>' and '<spell> enchanted <item>' to refer to these objects. For instance, a flower enchanted with the fireball spell could be identified as 'fireball enchanted flower'.
09/16/22VildoranNewbiehelpers can now determine what room a newbie under level 5 is in using the 'find' command.
09/16/22OsseThe help files for the 'pick' and 'bash' commands are now more accurate and specific about cooldown times.
09/16/22VildoranYou can now use the guildmaster and playtester comms while levitating.
09/14/22LungorthinItems conjured with the bone armour spell can now be removed and dropped, though only their maker can wear them.
09/14/22VildoranIn the Aiglos quest, you will no longer die instantly if you quit during the fall. You will still find it very unpleasant, however.
09/11/22VildoranYou can now use the travelto between Thranduils and Dol Guldur.
09/11/22VildoranWe've added a new feature to parties - the 'halt' command. As a party leader, you can use 'party halt' to stop your party from following you. As a party member, you can use it to stop following your leader. To resume following, use 'party follow'.
09/09/22VildoranNid, from the great tower shield quest, can no longer be healed. This prevented an anti-questjumping mechanism from triggering, allowing FRs to hijack the quest. If an ER has abandoned the quest (and significantly damaged Nid), Nid will also now fully heal prior to the FR starting the quest.
