App::Phoebe::Ijirait - a Gemini-based MUSH running on Phoebe


The ijirait are red-eyed shape shifters, and a game one plays via the Gemini protocol, and Ijiraq is also one of the moons of Saturn.

The Ijirait game is modelled along traditional MUSH games ("multi-user shared hallucination"), that is: players have a character in the game world; the game world consists of rooms; these rooms are connected to each other; if two characters are in the same room, they see each other; if one of them says something, the other hears it.

When you visit the URL using your Gemini browser, you're asked for a client certificate. The common name of the certificate is the name of your character in the game.

As the server doesn't know whether you're still active or not, it assumes a 10min timout. If you were active in the last 10min, other people in the same "room". Similarly, if you "say" something, whatever you said hangs on the room description for up to 10min as long as your character is still in the room.

There is no configuration. Simply add it to your config file:

    use App::Phoebe::Ijirait;

In a virtual host setup, this extension serves all the hosts. Here's how to serve just one of them:

    package App::Phoebe::Ijirait;
    our $host = "";
    use App::Phoebe::Ijirait;
