Welcome to Agora.

 Agora \Ag"o*ra\ ([a^]g"[-o]*r[.a]), n. [Gr. 'agora`.]
     An assembly; hence, the place of assembly, especially the
     market place, in an ancient Greek city.
                        -- Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

Agora is a site written by its users. It is a repository of information regarding the development of online multiuser environments (such as MUDs or massively multiplayer online games). It has grown out of the MudDev mailing list, as a complement to its ongoing discussion of issues, in order to provide the field, and those wishing to enter it, with something that is more of a reference archive.

Thanks for dropping in, and we hope you find the information here useful and that you'll have some content of your own to contribute!
