Holy Mission is a medieval fantasyMUD based in Linz, Austria. Founded in 1992 and still online, it is one of the longest-running MUDs. It uses the LPMud server software, and has been seen as typifying the "LPMud genre". (LPMud is properly a technical infrastructure, not a game genre, but some elements are popularly considered characteristic of games based on it.) Its name does not reflect any particular religious themes.

"Holy Mission Far less serious than its name implies—tickle attacks, winking, and flirting are more common than Jihads. On the other hand, it's not all socializing—to wiz you must complete a large number of quests and score one million points. The MUD is huge, and as on most LPs, you won't get very far if you don't join a guild. You'll have to begin with a weak guild, like the adventurer's, but you can switch later. Newbies should start by trying to kill the insects in Jake's garden (east of the start area) or the fairies in the mage's tower (ask other players for directions). The MUD is located in Austria, and the English descriptions are not very well written. [...] Server: LPMUD"
