Sunrise MUCK was an African-themed role-playing MUCK. It was created after the demise of African Tails MUCK, and has been revamped a number of times; the most recent change set the timeline a couple of centuries ahead of the last set of prides.


Sunrise MUCK was on port 1994 from June 2003 to September 2006. The website was at Sunrise MUCK went offline from September 2006 to February 2007[2], after which it was reopened on the address The MUCK went down again in July 2009 and on November 17 Maiza posted "4 months have passed since the last update regarding the status of SunRise Muck.

Connections with other MUCKs[edit]

Many of the lion characters and history on Sunrise MUCK continue from events and bloodlines on the defunct African Tails MUCK.

Originally, Sunrise MUCK had no canon characters from The Lion King. In May of 2006, several Feature Characters were allowed to transfer from Endless Round MUCK following some issues with their portrayal there. However, they were treated as regular characters on Sunrise MUCK and the MUCK remains "a general African themed MUCK" focused on the "original characters and prides", rather than The Lion King-themed.[4]


A few players view some of Sunrise MUCK's old players as being cliquish and not welcoming of new players or players who are not as proficient at roleplaying as others.[5][6] The staff have acknowledged these criticisms and are attempting to make new players feel more welcome.[7]

There has also been some concern about staff copying group ideas from Endless Round MUCK without first consulting the material's creators (who had expressed interest on importing their work into the game themselves). Tilyn, who has a leader in the group, acknowledges that although she knew Endless Round had such a group and had "no hand in thinking it up by [herself]", her inspiration for recreating the group was a movie.[8] The group has since been removed from the official @groups listing on the MUCK due to its inactivity.
