Server for a graphical, multi-user, 2D tile-based role playing game

Crossfire is a graphical, multi-user, 2D tile-based RPG (role playing game) similar to Ultima Online, Everquest, Moria, Angband, Omega, Nethack, Rogue, Gauntlet, and MUDs. Most of the game is based on predefined maps, but some areas are randomly generated. Since its initial release, Crossfire has grown to encompass over 150 monsters, about 3000 maps, an elaborate magic system, 12 races, 15 character classes, a system of skills, and many artifacts and treasures. It is based in a medieval fantasy world.
