The Eternal City (TEC) is a Text-Based Multi-Player Role-Playing game, based in a Roman-inspired atmosphere. TEC offers FREE accounts to play. The game offers a very unique and dynamic combat system, with 19 different combat skillsets to choose from. There are 9 different Non-Combat skillsets as well, and characters can learn whatever they wish, pending they have the slots available. Role-playing is enforced, but don't let that scare you off. You can learn all you need in game, just stick to time-period appropriate topics and you will be fine.
