AFK, Dawn of Time, Circle, Smaug, and several other codebase/servers are all Linux based. They are exciting to play. They make it fun to create worlds for other people to play.
There's about 1800 MUDs listed on mudconnector.com.
MUDs involve resource management, strategy, expression, quick thinking, exploration, problem solving, competition and cooperation.
These games are run mostly on Linux servers. Most of the codebases (server software) are open source and free. I use programable telnet clients, gmudix and tiny fugue, to connect.
When the codebase tools are improved so that the mechanics of creation can keep up with the creative urges of the administrator/owner/builders, then "world creation" will be among the "favorite games" of many of us.
What am I doing here instead of playing a MUD? Bye!
FreeCiv is like crack ... it's scary! But then, so is Frozen Bubble, so this was a really tough choice for me. I had to go with FreeCiv in the end, just because I end up spending hours playing it, whereas I just open up Frozen Bubble at random when I'm bored and quit after maybe 15 minutes.
