A Player is a person who connects, usually by telnet or a MUD client, to a MUD and plays the game. An engrossing MUD may have a player base of hundreds or thousands of players, some of whom may have played on the MUD for a decade or more and spent a year or more of real-life time playing the MUD.


The player interface may be better or worse for blind players, see the discussion at AudioGame.Net which is a site frequented by blind gamers.
