Eternal Lands (also known as EL among players) is a free to play multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) initially created by Radu Privantu in 2002. Pre-alpha version was launched for public on February 13, 2003.
The game was written in C using OpenGL and SDL.
Eternal Lands' outstanding difference from other role-playing games is that there are no castes, that is, your character is not tied to a certain profession or certain racial attributes. Every character can basically do everything the others can do. Background, attributes and profession can be developed during gameplay and changed or amended anytime.
