I'm pretty sure that Miro was referring to The Eternal City.  We
were previously free, but now part of the Skotos collection of
games.  Check it out at http://www.skotos.net/games/eternal-city/.
We are text-based. :)

We're sitting pretty close to a 2G database.  We use an
as-of-yet-unreleased version of Cold that is much faster than the
current release.  Recently work has been done and tested to make
sure that it can handle DBs well over the 4G mark as well.
