n. Any of the MUDs derived from the original MUD game by Richard Bartle (see MUD). BartleMUDs are noted for their (usually slightly offbeat) humor, dry but friendly syntax, and lack of adjectives in object descriptions, so a player is likely to come across 'brand172', for instance (see brand brand brand). Some MUDders intensely dislike Bartle and this term, and prefer to speak of 'MUD-1'.
