I'm pretty sure that Dragon Realms and Avalon (admittedly, commercial offerings,
but still text only) beat that handily.   I believe there are others, though few with
the longevity of LambdaMOO.

I know there was a recent exchange on the usenet about sizes and several came
out in the multiple hundreds.  Can't recall which they were, but I think they included
Arctic and Medievia and Realms of Despair.  Sojourn/Duril/Toris/Basternae was/were
in that vicinity.  Don't really recall for sure though!
