TriadCity is the world's most sophisticated text-based virtual world / role-playing game. It's so advanced, *The Cambridge Companion to Postmodernism* cites it as a new form of literature!

Because it's text, you read and type to play. It's not a 3D graphical environment such as World of Warcraft or Second Life. We find that our own imaginations are vastly more fulfilling. And, blind or visually impaired players are first-class citizens in TriadCity.

Because our monsters really are smart, you'll face challenges traditional adventure games are incapable of conceiving. We bring leading-edge techniques from robotics and other hyper-sophisticated forms of artificial intelligence to the game world. Our automated characters aren't standing around waiting to be killed: they have homes, jobs, hobbies, quirks and personality tics just like citizens of real-life cities. Our world is alive with motion, vibrant with character. And it has a wicked sense of humor.

It's FREE to play, is blind-friendly, and has more women players than men. Best of all, it's friendly! For twenty years SmartMonsters has been free of the flame wars, misogyny, and mean-spiritedness prominent in some other environments. Even our bulletin boards are safe! Visit us today - we can't wait to meet you!

As a member of the SmartMonsters universe, TriadCity is one linked World among others. Your characters can move freely between TriadCity, Midgaard, Dungeon, and future Worlds all with quite different "laws of physics". Meet you there!
