Rhostshyl is a social fantasy-based MUSH originally based on the books by J.F. Rivkin. Started in 1991 by Nyctasia, Rhostshyl has a long history and a devoted fan base. Numerous guilds offer a social structure and opportunities for interaction. Come one, come all!
Rhostshyl, based on the Silverglass Series, by J. F. Rivkin, is a world bathed in imagination and unique code. Furnished with a rich medieval background, this statless system allows the player to become enriched in the environment and become what they wish.
Rhostshyl, founded early 1989/1990, is not only one of the oldest games still online, but is a place full of different races and professions. These professions are not the normal Bakers, Tanners, etc, But GUILDS, each with unique items and abilities. You could be a Knight in shining armor, a sneaky rogue stealing from others pockets, or even a moss-covered corpse freshly risen from a long forgotten grave. The possiblities are only limited by the guilds you chose and the direction in which you yourself decide. Rhostshyl is primarily a social world, but people as individuals participate in many other activities. We do not propose to be a Role Playing world, however, individuals and groups within Rhostshyl may do so on their own as long as it doesn't interfere with other players. The guild & race structure is set up to give people a framework from which to chat, congregate, and write code. It is not intended to take over a player's personality completely, but rather add some spice.
