Game characteristics


First launched in 1994 from Sub Cyberia, England's first internet cafe,[2] Legends of Terris went on to become the largest text-based game in Europe.[3] Legends of Terris was launched on AOL UK in 1995, and was then launched on AOL in the US in 1996.

The client software currently allows for a powerful combination of user-defined keyboard shortcuts, macros, colors, highlights, aliases, nicknames, and alerts.
