3Kingdoms, always free to play and has been established for over 20 YEARS as one of the internet's premier online adventures! We are a self-funded operation with phenomenal depth that only 19 years continual development and innovation can provide. Confidently invest your gaming time like thousands of others have with a proven leader - 3Kingdoms.

Quick Connect to 3K NOW! (other connection options)

And also visit our sister adventure of 3Scapes!

Welcome friend! Come immerse yourself in the largest and most advanced online game in existence. With thousands of players, tens of thousands of rooms, hundred of areas, dozens of quests and a billion possibilities, 3Kingdoms offers you endless worlds of adventure!

Simple enough to learn, yet complex enough to challenge you for years, 3Kingdoms is a colossal adventure through which many years of active and continued development by its dedicated coding staff has grown to be the best and most feature-rich online adventure you will ever play.

Based around the mighty town of Pinnacle, three main realms beckon the player to explore. These kingdoms are known as: Fantasy, a vast medieval realm full of orcs, elves, dragons, and a myriad of other creatures; Science, a post-apocalyptic, war-torn world set in the not-so-distant future; and Chaos, a transient realm where the enormous realities of Fantasy and Science collide to produce creatures so bizarre that they have yet to be categorized.

During their exploration of the realms, players have the opportunity to join any of well over a dozen different guilds. These guilds, like the Knights, Necromancers and Juggernauts and many others, allow the player to become part of a powerful team and gives them a place to socialize with other players. Guilds also grant special, unique powers to the player, furthering their abilities as they explore the vast expanses of each realm. Add in the comprehensive skill system that 3K offers and you are able to customize your characters more than anywhere else.

3Kingdoms combines all these features, and so much more, to give the player an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Come live the adventure and find out for yourself why 3K is the best there is!

3K cardboard here again, this time with Caesar in front of the world's largest fire hydrant of it's time in Beaumont, TX. Built by Disney to promote ther 101 Dalmations movies, it still stands today outside the city's fire museum, and believe it or not, is fully functional. Very cool. And of course, you too can earn a free skill point simply for sending in yourself holding a 3Kingdoms or 3Scapes sign in front of something landmarky.

3K cardboard strikes again, this time we see our brave adventurer Andor at the Topography of Terror in Berlin, plus a shot of the East Side Gallery in Berlin. Remember, you too can earn a free skill point simply for sending in yourself holding a 3Kingdoms or 3Scapes sign in front of something landmarky.

Don't take 5 steps back while posing for this picture friends. Remember, you too can earn a free skill point simply for sending in yourself holding a 3Kingdoms or 3Scapes sign in front of a landmark.

Long time no news (hey, we've been busy coding stuff), but with 2012 comes another exciting evolution of the now FIFTEEN-YEAR long celebration known as the Worlds of Marble Official MUD Party or in other words, the 2012 OMP!

When : Thursday August 9th - Sunday August 12th
Location : Lansing, MI (the actual home of 3K and 3S!) - Airport: LAN
Hotel : Okemos Conference Center (reservation details coming soon)
Room rate : $85/night includes full breakfast
Shuttle : TBD, but there will be something in place to move you around

Wait, did that say Sunday? You bet it did. One of the great things about OMPs in the past has been the opportunity to play games - board games, RPGs, card games etc. - games that you normally wouldn't have in your closet, or have time for, or have other players to play with. To this end, for 2012, we're doing a couple things new:

1) We're inviting local game masters and gamers to organize the gaming aspect that was mentioned above. Not only will you be able to really get your gaming on, but you will be able to do so with organization, participation and game availability never before seen at an OMP.

2) We're expanding to Sunday also to allow for even more gaming goodness.

That said, the OMP 2012 will be two parts of one great whole!

Thursday & Friday : The OMP as you always have known it - dog punting, card games, marble hunt, poker, lots of other stuff and of course, the awesome door prizes. This portion of the event is for 3K/3Sers and their guests only. To be clear, the main OMP event (door prizes, etc.) has historically been on Saturday night, this year it's on Friday night.

Saturday & Sunday : Games, games and more games. Plus, there will be discussions, workshops, vendors and door prizes given away throughout both days. Plus plenty of places to just hang out and socialize. This portion of the event is open to any and all gamers.

Prices
------
4-day Full-Access Pass : $50 per person (3K/3Sers & guests only)
Saturday & Sunday Gaming Pass : $20 per person
Saturday Only Gaming Pass : $15 per person
Sunday Only Gaming Pass : $10 per person
  • Kids 12 and under are free with an adult (though they can't win prizes)
  • Family rates available - inquire for details
  • If you VAF $75 or more in the upcoming OMP VAF drive, you'll get a 4-day Full-Access pass FREE! (on top of whatever else the OMP drive will be offering this year)
The schedules (both OMP and gaming) and the ability to purchase passes will be coming soon!

Another exciting 3K-cardboard action-shot, this time from our intrepid cruiser Davor/Torc at the Friday the 13th bike run in Port Dover, Ontario. He's all ready for his job interview at the Royal Bank, and we wish him the best of luck. Remember, show up 10 minutes early, firm two-pump handshake and look 'em in the eye.

Massively by Joystiq recently gave us a blurb and claims that MUDs are still very much alive and very much kicking and we welcome anyone coming to our site as a result. Please feel free to poke around, but get yourself in the game ASAP because there is no better way to experience the premier adventure that is 3K.

We've been coding this thing for 19 years just for you. We're happy you finally made it!
 
March 1st, 2011
 
The 2011 OMP VAF Drive has begun! Don't forget, this year we have two OMPs, and the first one to ever be held on the West coast will be here in about a month!

Professions are now available! Players can further customize their mudding experience by choosing a profession which enhances or supports their own specific style of gameplay. Do you like to play with fire damage? Perhaps you could become an arsonist. Do you wish you could tweak armor and weaponry to fit your own needs? Become a reforger. With over 35 comprehensive professions to choose from, you're sure to find something that appeals to your own unique experience here on 3-Kingdoms.

What better to break up the non-news than a 3K-esque picture? Here's Ranma standing in front of our newest endeavor, asian hairstyling! Yes, for only 1000 yen, you to could have youself a haircut performed by a master of ninja barbering techniques. It's not just a haircut, it's an adventure.

Check out the hot new limited edition 3K tavern mirror!

Framed in richly stained, hand-crafted wood, this mirror glows awesomely with 3K's colorful logo. Pictures simply don't do this thing justice.

Each individually numbered mirror is sandblast-etched on the reverse side and then hand-painted in bright translucent colors. Illuminated from behind with a standard flourescent bulb and inline switch, the whole thing is then fit into a 12" x 12" x 3" wooden frame. This exquisite piece is 100% made in the USA.

Shine your 3K pride by adding this beautiful mirror to your gameroom, den or office. You can even get yours personalized with your character's name etched in light blue, illuminated right alongside your favorite game's logo.

Currently, you can only get yours through the 2010 OMP VAF drive, so login today!

Happy new year! In celebration, we are pleased to present to you 3Kingdoms Dungeons!

Revolutionary in the world of MUDs, the key facet of the dungeon concept is that you and your party will have a single "copy" of a specific area unique to you and your friends. This allows for comfortable exploration and adventuring within areas at your own pace, as well as providing for "raid style" adventuring that is so popular today.

Another great feature of dungeons is the ability for wizards to code their areas to scale with the strengths of the party, accomodating the different skill levels of players. In other words, the bigger you are, the more challenging your own dungeon will be.

Once in the game, type "help dungeons" for more info on this exciting new addition, and look for dungeons to be applied to both new areas and some older ones as well in the coming year!

The 3K worldwide infection reaches pandemic level as we see Ranma posing in front of the massive Buddah statue. I'm pretty sure it's in Asia somewhere, which means that I passed elementary school geography as well as junior college theology. Again, it's all about me. Screw Ranma and his not-even-cardboard sign. Cheater.

Remember, you too can get yourself a free skill point just for getting a picture of yourself holding a 3K.org of 3Scapes.org sign in front of a famous landmark.

Congratulations to Elektra and Parisienne for their dual-winning entries into the recent "Make a Flyer for 3K" contest! They will split the pot and get 10 skill points each for their submissions of these awesome looking flyers.

Download them today and help spread the work about your favorite game!

Check out the brand spanking new java-based BoneClient! Developed by Bonecrusher, one of our intrepid wizards and also one of the most successful players on 3K ever, BoneClient is designed for speed and streamlined ease of use.

Look for more BoneClient updates in the future, and be sure to send Bonecrusher all your wonderful ideas and feedback as well!

More cardboard advertising! Here we have our intrepid international traveler Ranma braving the wilds of Tokyo to pose in front of the monster Gundam replica, which given its cost, could probably have fed throngs of the wanting poor. Sally Struthers be praised, with the coin this thing raped from humanity, you could stuff Twinkies into every African orifice there is.

Given the Japanese, it could be worse, like some green-haired giant-eyed white chick being abused by tentacles. At least this isn't pixelized.

Remember, you too can get yourself a free skill point just for getting a picture of yourself holding a 3K.org or 3Scapes.org in front of a famous landmark.

Congratulations Necromancers, winners of the 2009 OMP VAF Drive! Please enjoy your shiny new 2009 banner flying high over the Center of Town in Pinnacle. Thanks to all who sent in their VAFs this year. Even with the economy in the toilet, 3K (and now 3S!) continues to be the best community in the history of mudding. See you all at the 2009 OMP!
 
July 18th, 2009
 

In keeping with our silly theme of cardboard advertising, here we see Snitcakes and Ferretsroq enjoying their recent visit to The Alamo.

Remember, you too can get yourself a free skill point just for getting a picture of yourself holding a 3K.org of 3Scapes.org sign in front of a famous landmark.

Happy Memorial Day! In celebration, 3Scapes, the brand new alternate dimension sister MUD to 3Kingdoms is now open! Everyone starts out at level 1, and the world is wide open! Dive in now to claim your place in the most historical thing to ever happen to MUDs anywhere!

Rumors filtering out of the sorcery circles hold that the Archmage Arlane recently lost an apprentice when her group managed to break the seal on another prison plane in the extraplanar prison she has been investigating for some time. The creatures within are immensely dangerous - more powerful than any others discovered within the prison to date. Upon hearing the name of the rediscovered entity, an elderly sage in Wayhaven who is an expert on the history of the Outer Planes turned white with terror, began babbling incomprehensibly, and soiled the floor. He is still sequestered under strict orders of bed rest, and the acolytes of Morike who tend to him were awoken one night by his screams: "No mortal could possibly stop him! Oh no! Oh dear! No, noooooo!"

Happy new year! In celebration, we present you the brand new map of Chaos as rendered by Cat. It can be found on the realms page (click the picture). If you've ever been in Chaos (and really, who hasn't?) you'll really appreciate all the goofiness that you see in the map.

Winner again for November on TMC! Even with heavy competition from teeny weeny, pibbling pickolini, piddily diddily poof muds that think they are better than us, we've held on for six months on top of them. Woo!
 
October 25, 2008
 

Check out the new graphic Fantasy map on the realms page (click the picture). This new map was designed by Jareth and is chock full of neat visuals.

The free stat reset, free skill reset, skill quest list, reduced housing costs, and reduced smithy repairs (plus the additional bonus of the smithy making your gear slightly better than it was before) are all in as a result of your faithful VAFs. You guys rock, and it is because of you and you alone that we can bring you hotdogs.
 
June 29th, 2008
 

Revolutionary real-time in-game maps have come to 3K! View the dynamically-updated minimap as you move about the realms to get a sense of your surroundings, or train up your cartography skill and witness the power of this fully armed and oper.... Um yeah, AMAZING new mapping feature!
 
June 18th, 2008
 

We've just added an exciting, interactive movie sequence for new players. Help the mayor of Pinnacle retrieve the lost shards of his mirror by collecting them from the corpses of the evil bandits!

Here's a picture of a hotdog.

See Tensor, one of our faithful Archons, use cardboard he stole from a homeless man in NYC so he can shamelessly plug 3K from Times Square, just before being hauled off by the cops...
