Peragro Tempus will be a free multiplayer online role-playing game with a persistent world, which evolves according to nature and its inhabitants (players and NPCs). It has been in development since 2005, and is being built by a dedicated group of volunteers. Peragro Tempus is written in C++.

Game[edit]

Peragro Tempus will be an massive multiplayer online RPG with an evolving world, where plants and wildlife develop and evolve as they progress in an ecological system which the players interact with. The focus of the game will be on Role Playing, emphasized through game mechanics design. A part of this design is the implementation of a sustainable, self renewing economy driven by player action and interaction. This will interact with a classless system, in which all actions are skill and ability based and where such attributes are developed mainly through use, to encourage role-finding and assumption among players. Implementation of a skill depreciation will further refine the roles of individuals within the ecosystem of the game by preventing "Jack of All Trades" super-characters from dominating the game and overwhelming the game world.
