Does anyone know what MUD stands for? As in an RPG thats done on paper as a story and passed between 2 people. You have one person write down a senario and choices of what he can do. Then you pass it to the other person who puts his answer and gives it back to the first person and the story goes on from there! But what I want to know is what MUD stands for...

Wow. I can't believe no-one around here knew that.
MUD stands for Multi-User Domain.
Although I wouldn't define MUD in the way you have.
MUDS started in the early days of text-based internet.
Sort of like Dungeons & Dragons, only people would use BB's (Bulletin Boards) similar to this type that you are reading/using at funtrivia. There are still groups dedicated to maintaining and playing MUDs out there to this day. We call them "hard-core" RPGers.

hope that helped
