Multi User Dungeon (MUD)[1][2] er en form for tekstbasert flerspiller sanntidsrollespill på Internett, som spilles over den gamle Telnet-protokollen. MUD er en av de første formene for nettverksspill og forgjengeren til MMORPG.[3] MUDer kombinerer elementer fra rollespill, «hack and slash»-spill, PvP, og online chat.

ISBN 0-13-101816-7. «[pp. 9-10] TinyMUD was deliberately intended to be distanced from the prevailing hack-and-slay AberMUD style, and the "D" in its name was said to stand for "Dimension" (or, occasionally, "Domain") rather than "Dungeon;" this is the ultimate cause of the MUD/MU* distinction that was to arise some years later. [pp. 741] The "D" in MUD stands for "Dungeon" [...] because the version of ZORK Roy played was a Fortran port called DUNGEN.»
