Being creative: Creating anything you want

One of the best things about KidMud is that you can make things. The only limit is your imagination! An elf I know created a bow and arrow to carry with her. Wizard seems to always have a mug of coffee with him. If you can think it up, you can make it on KidMud.

@create $thing called whatever
A $thing is the basic object in KidMud. When you create a $thing, you can carry it around, give it to people, put it on a table...whatever you would do with a real 'thing' in the real world. When you are carrying a $thing, people will see it when they look at you. Instead of whatever, put in the name of what you want to make.


@create $thing called wand

This creates a wand. You will see:

You now have wand with object number #473 and parent generic thing (#5).

Next, describe your new object:

@describe wand as "You see an ornately carved wand, made of a mysterious dark 
wood. It seems to shimmer."

Now, when people look at you, they will see that you are carrying a wand:

look wizard
The Wizard is wearing a flowing blue robe peppered with stars. His pointy 
cap seems to be a bit lop-sided.
He is awake and looks alert.
Carrying: a wand

You can put the thing onto a table (put), drop it on the ground (drop), pick it up (get) or give it to someone (give):

put wand on table
You put the wand on the kitchen table.

get wand from table
You remove wand from kitchen table.

drop wand
You drop the wand.

get wand
You take the wand.

give wand to toby
You give the wand to Toby.

If someone looks at the wand, they will see your description:

look at wand
You see an ornately carved wand, made of a mysterious dark wood. It seems to shimmer.

Now this is just perries

Now this is just perries computer smartz mixed with creative writing! Perry, are you familiar with programming a microcontroller called the arduino? I just bought one and it's awesome! i'm turning into a code monkey!!  I really hope that you believe that i figured this out for myself, this code blinks an led.


void setup()


pinMode(13, OUTPUT);   //intializes pin 13 as an output for an led


void loop() //repeat the cycle


   digitalWrite(13, HIGH); //turns the led on

    delay(1000); //wait a second

     digitalWrite(13, LOW); //turns the led off

     delay(1000); //wait one second

      //do it all over again
