whitestar.pyrsonal.com is the new public server for the realtime, multiuser
networked game "crossfire".
Playing is 100% free.

Once you connect to it via a client, it is somewhat similar to an LPmud.
You choose a character (but you "roll" stats, a la D&D), buy gear, and
go kill monsters. You also get to chat with other people, party up with them,
and explore strange new areas.

But the big difference: This has GRAPHICS!

Overall, it's kind of a cross between the old arcade game "Gauntlet", 
and the "Ultima" games.

Previously, you had to have a unix machine connected to the net to play. But 
now, there is a java client, so most people out there can now join in.

As mentioned in another post, the java client is available from

That page also gives you screenshots of the game, and mentions where to get
the unix client prog, if you are so inclined.
