There are Star Wars MUSHes and MUDs that you can access.  If you ask around 
on the Usenet newsgroups, someone may tell you how to access these 
MUD/MUSHes.  Here is a description of Star Wars: The Minos Cluster.

Star Wars: The Minos Cluster.  The Mush is set in the time after 'The Empire
Strikes Back' in a small cluster on the rim, largely ignored by most places. 
Supplies are limited, and the cluster is the last to know about anything. Of 
course, the Empire still fights the growing Rebellion, with little help from 
the Core, who fight their own battles and care little about a few backwater 
worlds and revolting farmers. The Syndicate, a powerful underworld cartel, 
supplies the citizens with drugs, and illegal supplies. The Minos Mestra 
corp, an offshoot of the CSA, mines asteroids for minerals, while hanging in 
the delicate balance of neutrality. It's a place where people struggle to 
survive and make do with what they have.  It's a place where anything is 
possible.

Star Wars: The Minos Cluster is fully "In Character", with working space, 
combat, skills system, experience system, economy, cargo, etc.  Login as 
guest and follow the instructions to get a character.

Address: 204.248.98.2 4202
         Cachenet.Com 4202
Email: < SWMC@Cachenet.com >


If anyone knows of other MUD/MUSHes that would like to have an introductory
paragraph in the FAQ, please feel free to send me mail about them.
