|I have designed a banner for the game. So if anybody of you is planing to make some advertisement for this game somewhere you can use it :)|
|Atlantis is currently on hiatus. I can not say when I will restart a new game. I'll have to redesign and rewrite the managing software, since my old linux box I had used to run the game has joined the corps invisible. I'll announce any new game in the usual places.
|Many thanks to Daniel Hadson for providing a new intermediate player guide. The guide can be accessed by the menu to the left or this link
|Arno's Atlantis v4 has started, we had only 28 players in the first turn, but with the third turn we're approaching the 100. The map has a size of 56x56 provinces with a water/land ratio of 55%/45%.|
tlantis is a free open-ended multi-player computer moderated strategic fantasy game for any number of players. It is played via email. The game world is populated by many races and monsters. Players may attempt to carve out huge empires, become master magicians, intrepid explorers, rich traders or any other career that comes to mind and interact with other players in trade, war and alliances. There is no declared winner of the game; players set their own objectives, and one can join at any time.
ussell Wallace developed the initial version and ran the first game, Atlantis 1.0 in 1993. Geoff Dunbar continued the legacy, first with the extensive playtest of Atlantis 2.0, and then the commercial game Atlantis 3.0. Atlantis 4.0 was created by Geoff Dunbar. AtlantisDev was formed sometime after that and Joseph Traub became the maintainer of the code. Atlantis 4.0 was later expanded on by various contributors from the AtlantisDev group. The new maintainer of the code is Azthar Septragen.
am running the game with the Standard 4.0.10k source with slightly modified ruleset. The exact modifications are for the player to explore. The game is open ended and I hope the modifications add to the long term playing motivation. Gameturns will be run once a week every Sunday with a deadline at 20:00 MET.
