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.

Recent T2T Updates

Below is a list of the most recent 20 updates made on The Two Towers by our dedicated volunteer coders.

DateUpdaterUpdate Text
04/06/24OsseThe culinary delights of Middle-earth have been forever augmented by the addition of a fried egg option at the sandwich maker in the Minas Tirith Goldsmith's Fellowship.
04/06/24OsseGuthwine has a new description, because apparently some people can't tell high-carbon steel by sight.
03/18/24Vingilote(Guilds) A keg of Whitenose Red Barrel has been added as a menuedit choice in guild bars. The menu itself has also incidentally been updated to better display the listings in two columns.
03/13/24OsseWe have decided to extend the current uptime until Thursday, 11:45 PM when the reboot for the Event will take place. The "reboot window" shown by the "uptime" command will not reflect this. Apologies for the late notice of this decision.
03/12/24OsseWe have added a 'help margins' command, to provide a guide for recommended line lengths when inputing text into an editor on the MUD (writing board posts, mails, etc). Guildmasters will find this especially useful when working on descriptions for guild rooms, npcs and items.
03/02/24OsseOur login welcome screen has been updated as part of celebrating T2T's 30th Anniversary.
03/02/24OsseThe capacity of the Friends and Enemies lists have each been increased from 200 to 300.
02/28/24LungorthinHorses are no longer forbidden entry into Mordor's beast hatchery.
02/20/24VildoranThe cause of the recent crash has been fixed.
02/08/24VildoranArrows in a quiver will now drop into a strongbox when you log off, similar to how other gear does.
01/20/24LungorthinJust like you can identify an 'empty baldric' when it is empty, it is now possible to identify a 'mended <armour item>' when it has been mended. This change is valid as of next reboot.
01/14/24VildoranIt is now possible to limit the maximum size of the output of the 'map' command using the 'max_map_width' and 'max_map_height' settings. This can be used to better configure the layout of some mobile clients.
01/09/24LungorthinThe orc commander who shares quarters with Gothmog has once more become a Mordor citizen. Players who normally kill this NPC should be cautious of potential fines imposed by Guild Kill Restrictions, as well as its impact on their standing with Mordor.
01/03/24LungorthinBank transactions have been refined to exclusively accept numerical inputs or the designated 'all' and 'all but' syntaxes for both deposits and withdrawals.
01/02/24LungorthinIt is now possible to sheath lances into spear sheaths.
12/30/23LungorthinThe old necromancer in the many-tailed whip reset quest has had a spell facelift. He now casts the actual ER versions of the spells already in his repertoire.
12/09/23OsseWe have increased the capacity of ring boxes from 3 to 4. We will also be seeking feedback on the best ways to potentially allow for even larger capacities for ring boxes.
11/27/23OsseThe obsolete (OOC) tag has been removed from the main comm output.
11/11/23OsseA bug which previously prevented ghosts from using travelto has been fixed. So ghosts can now zoom around like the rest of us.
10/20/23LungorthinIt is now possible to unhand every item held in your hands simultaneously via 'unhand all', assuming the item could be unhanded in the first place.
