Eternal Lands

Eternal Lands

Eternal Lands first went online in February of 2003. At that time all you could do was sit down and walk around exploring maps. It wasn't until about 6 months later that fighting and some more skills were implemented. Since then the project has grown a lot and has been lucky enough to find some great volunteers to help us out in many areas. MMORPG's are never truly complete, so there will always be new things added for as long as the game is online! The game will always be free to play.

Minimum system requirements: 

CPU: 450 MHz
RAM: 128 MB
GPU: OpenGL 1.2 compliant
These requirements might get higher/lower during the development of the game.

Chase a single small animal for hours

Some quests require you to find one or two animals on a very large map 5 times. It is possible to walk the map for hours without finding a single one of them.
IMHO if you play it "right" it is a huge waste of time.

EL License

I think Eternal Lands is open-source, so the license tag of the game description should be changed accordingly: http://git.berlios.de/cgi-bin/cgit.cgi/elc/plain/eternal_lands_license.txt
Though I agree the license text on the website is somewhat different, and could be considered as a license for a freeware non-libre game: http://www.eternal-lands.com/page/license.txt
It might be worth asking the developers to clarify this.
