Starmourn just went into open beta, which means it’s time to strap yourself in and get ready to head for the stars!
It’s been over 3.5 years since we first started working on Starmourn, and we can finally pull the curtain back now and let you experience what we’ve been working on! We think Starmourn is the most exciting sci-fi MUD out there, and our whole team deserves the credit.
Starmourn has all sorts of systems that are genuinely new to Iron Realms games, from our unique take on hacking to momentum-based, highly-customizable starships to some of the player government systems to the wetwiring healing system to the way so many resources are entirely under player control in terms of harvesting the raw materials in space, refining them at a player-owned and operated refinery, and then turning them into manufactured goods to our room props and more.
The game also features a main quest storyline that starts from day one and goes to level 75 – something none of our other games have done.
Congrats to the whole Starmourn team, and as for you, dear readers – get ready to experience an entirely new MUD from opening day. In the future, you’ll be looked back at as the first generation of Starmourn players, who will likely leave an outsized mark on the legacy of the game. Do us proud!

We’ve just launched another wave of closed beta invites, so check your inbox to see if you were one of the lucky few!
We made a little trailer for Starmourn, for you guys to enjoy and share with your friends. Enjoy!
I’m sure you have been waiting with bated breath for this day! We’re pleased to announce that Starmourn will be going into beta testing this November! We’ll be running a closed beta for a couple of weeks, and barring any major issues(*), we’ll open it up to everyone mid-December!
Can’t wait for open beta? Neither can we! So we’re going to run a contest for invites to the closed beta over on the Starmourn forums – to enter, all you have to do is post in the contest thread with what race/class combination you’re most excited about playing. We’ll draw a handful of players to join us in the first taste of Iron Realms’ first Sci-fi game.
While we will be doing a player wipe between closed and open beta, those who participate in the closed beta will be gifted 100 credits on their final character once we hit open beta.
The contest starts today and will run until November 12th, so head over to the Starmourn forums and enter today.
- One entry per person please – multiple entries will result in disqualification.
- Applicants will need to be 18 or older at the time of the drawing, for legal purposes.
(*) This is a possibility – we’ll do our best to not delay the opening, but it could happen.
