    Hey Germanicus,
    I can't help too much with the acutal MUD code, but if you're starting from complete ground zero, I can recommend a few tips.

    1) You don't need to buy anything, in terms of a compiler, etc. You can download the latest version of Java from www.java.sun.com. You can also get a good development tool from www.netbeans.com (Eclipse is another one that many people like). If those are too complex to start with, you can get a good starting tool from www.bluej.org.

    2) You can find a good tutorial on java client/server code at www.java.sun.com. That will probably prove invaluable when it comes time to write your network code.

    3) If you're a complete beginner to Java and Java game programming, you might check out the tutorials www.sleepinggiantsoftware.com/FGJ. They're not directly related to MUDs, but they talk about basic application frameworks, text, graphics, and sound.

    Good luck! Keep us posted on your progress.
