Everything you wanted to know about Chat Theatres and the open source community behind them.
A Chat Theatre is a online chat, discussion, and storytelling/roleplaying environment that leverages old-style mud/mush commands and text-dominant virtual objects, but with all the advantages of a modern HTML5 web interface, including clickable links, visual maps, popup windows, etc. It is based on SkotOS, a 4th-generation text game engine that has been in use for online games for over 20 years.
You are welcome to create test accounts on our demo server at The Gables. This minimal Chat Theatre is functional, but a WORK IN PROGRESS.
