FoxMUD is a great text based online RPG that I have been playing for a few years now. Fox MUD has four classes (Cleric, Mage, Warrior, Thief) and when you create your character you pick your class order based on which class you wish to accel most in. You can level up and gain skills in any class, but the exp required to level up in your 4th class pick is much greater than that required for your primary class. You are also able to gain Lord levels in your primary class. Lord levels allow you to specialize a bit and gain more powerful skills.

The mud is running again in sort of a limp mode. Should hopefully be fine until the new hardware arrives, but may end up coming down again. At the end of the week there will be a day or so of downtime to get the new server going.
