Sequent was a DikuMUD based MUD running on a Sequent multiprocessor machine at sequent.berkeley.edu at the University of California, Berkeley. It was started in March 1991.[1][2] Raja Kushalnagar ("Duke of Sequent") enhanced the DikuMUD Gamma version, both in database and code. Database enhancements included several new areas, 50 mortal levels and 10 immortal (administrative) levels. Code enhancements included tweaks to take advantage of multiprocessors on a sequent multiprocessor, machine hence the name Sequent DikuMUD. The program was able to run simultaneously on multiple on-board 386 processors specific to the Sequent S81 machine .[3]

Notable MUDs running on the Sequent codebase include Sojourn and its successor, TorilMUD; DikuMUD Niligiri[4] and CircleMUD.[5]
