What is 6dragons?
6dragons is a MUD, which is a text driven Multi User Dimension Game. Mud's work very
well with screenreaders. The Staff of 6dragons are trying to make 6dragons the most
blind friendly mud out there. We need your input to help us do that. Our game
uses a medieval fantasy theme.

your screenreader easier to hear.

typing landmark area name. You then will be told which general direction to go, until you

will hear only one. Your pierce has hit the goblin 8 times for 350 total damage!
