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
06/25/22LungorthinIt is now possible to invite all players in the same room as you via 'party invite all'. See 'help party' for the command's full functionality.
06/13/22LungorthinGuilds: Armoury arrow boxes have undergone a cosmetic change, and will now instead be arrow barrels. This change will be implemented as of next reboot.
05/15/22LungorthinIt is now possible to display your aliases in a copy-paste friendly list using the new '-print' argument. See 'help alias' for the command's full functionality.
05/09/22LuthienThe auctioneers are really keen on having their requests fulfilled, so they have started keeping track of their best suppliers. They look forward to publicly recognizing the best of the best. Read 'help auction faq' for more info.
05/03/22OsseThe Miss and Bliss Inn in Pelargir has added a sign with instructions on how to make full use of their services, like most other inns in Middle-earth.
04/22/22LungorthinSimilar to how headbutt, feint, and other professional attacks work, it is now possible to backstab without indicating your target's name. This assumes you are already in combat, and your target is not actively hitting you. See 'help backstab' for the command's full functionality.
04/20/22LuthienYou will now be notified upon logging in if there is an ongoing mutiny against your GM, or if your guild has started the disbandment process (see help overthrow and help guild disband).
04/04/22OsseBelegost now has an entry hall, which replaces what was the first dark tunnel room when you headed "down" from signpost room. The new entry hall allows mounts and now has the hitching post, which will allow packtag to work in the Belegost shops. Also, the main route to the town center has been tweaked to be a "torch-lit tunnel" and be more direct and less maze-like (2w,7s). No rooms were removed so aliases using the original route will still work.
04/04/22GimilkhadMounts will now be able to take more damage in combat before bucking their riders. This will be most noticeable by lower levels and non-rider riders.
03/31/22Osse'help fsi' has been updated to reflect a couple of more 'frequently shot-down ideas' that tend to show up often.
03/31/22OsseThe workshops of wagon builders across Arda now have trash cans to help keep things tidy.
03/27/22OsseShop-bought survival gear will now behave the same as newbie survival gear (be autoloading and unsellable), but onlt for players under level 5.
03/27/22OsseJorgul the Haradrim archer trainer in Harondor will now allow servants to train with him.
03/08/22OsseAfter 17 years of being sealed off, a certain resting point on the Cirith Ungol stairs has been re-added in a mostly cosmetic way.
03/07/22VildoranThe 'spells' command will now show spells tied to equipment you are carrying, such as scrolls and spells tied to equipment in the Battleground.
02/28/22Osse'help fsi' has been updated to note that Valinor does not intend to add custom hit messages to any in-game weapons that currently have the default ones.
02/26/22VildoranThe river Isen near Orthanc has been connected and it is now possible to sail through the area. This will take effect with the next reboot.
02/15/22LungorthinThe leather bridle's functionality has been revamped. It now slightly increases its mount's top speed.
02/12/22VildoranBattleground updates: 1. Stats tracking should work properly now for highest kills and bow damage. 2. The leaders now have full vision. 3. Evil players should no longer end up in Rhosgobel after the battle. 4. The debuffs from the Spider should no longer persist after the battle. 5. Disarm has been buffed a little, and the leaders will now eventually re-wield their weapons if disarmed. 6. Staves of the Eye/Trees have been added to the shop.
02/11/22LungorthinMount enthusiasts rejoice! The leather bridle can now be used with donkeys in addition to horses.
