Miriani: Online Adventure Game for the Blind
By Jessica Pitzer
Miriani is a multi-player online roleplaying game in which you take on the role of a starship pilot. It is set in the year 2355, and things are quite a bit different than in our world today.
Their are 40 known sectors, which are populated by many planets, moons, and space stations. Some of the activities you can do are:
- Become a pirate, and steal from other players.
- Protect human space from aliens called praelor by fighting in invasions, and by participating in combat missions.
- Asteroid hauling.
- Salvaging Debris.
- Planetary mining.
- Traveling through space, hunting for artifacts.
- Mail delivery.
- Passenger Transports.
- Atmospheric Salvaging.
- Planetary surveying, both in space, and on the ground.
Miriani is a MOO, a Multi-User Domain - Object Oriented game that requires a MOO client. If your sighted I recommend VMoo from http://www.vmoo.com/download, and if your blind, I recommend either Monkey Term, or VIP Mud from http://www.gmagames.com/vipmud.shtml. Their are also a number of soundpacks that can be found on the internet, links to these can also be found on the in game message boards, and at http://www.toastsoft.net, who has a link to an older one for monkey term.
The hostname to connect to the MOO is toastsoft.net, and the port is 1234.
