    MUSH stands for "multi-user shared hallucination".

    It is a text-based game that takes user input and outputs text in response.

    In other words, everything done and said in the game is text. You are, normally, typing to another live person. In some cases, the user will use commands to get responses from the game. Other times, the user will type a response to another live person and they will roleplay back and forth.

    The main draw into these games is the roleplaying aspect. The two, or more, people roleplaying together rely on one another to set the scene and have fun together by relying on the imagery the person can convey and the story that is told by another live person.

  • So it is completely text-based?

    For the most part, NewHopeMUSH is a completely text-based game, yes. This is because, unlike graphical games, text-based games tend to rely on the imagination and innovation of their players over graphical interfaces.

    As such, NewHopeMUSH depends more on the actual roleplay aspect of gaming over any specific system. This does not mean that certain systems do not exist, such as an in-game economy and character generation system, but most of the in-game actions will be through typing and some point-and-click in order to use the game.

  • How do I make my character move?

    You can move your character around the game by typing where you want to go. You will see exits showing you different directions (north, south, east, west, exit, and so forth).

  • How do I communicate in-game?

    MUSH-type games are more than just text-based games. They are communities that involve every player, and revolve around the players as well. They become communities that thrive together, in order to better both the game and the experience therein.

    As such, it is important that MUSH games have a sense of self and self purpose. Therefore, the sense of a community is very important in MUSH games. In order to become a part of these communities, a player can communicate through channels (@chan/list in-game - to see a list of channels, and +<channel> <message> - to communicate), chat in the In-Character Grid, or in the Out of Character Zone, should the MUSH have one (which NewHopeMUSH does).

    Most MUSHes, such as NewHopeMUSH, also have in-game Bulletin Boards. With all this in mind, there is very rarely any time where a lack of communication becomes an issue.
