The Last Outpost

4.9/5 rating (38 votes)

The Last Outpost

"Three generations ago, The Empire was overrun. The Last 
Outpost, a small coastal trading community located deep in the wild, was spared from most of the fighting and survived. Life in the Outpost is not easy, and many of the finer things from the old Empire are absent. The residents of the Outpost are descended from the survivors of The Fall, a tough and adventurous breed. They are well suited to the task of reclaiming the land once tamed by their forefathers."
Along with exploring and advancing through the game world, The Last Outpost offers players the ability to lay claim to the zones that make up the land. Once claimed, a zone can be taxed, and the player making the claim gets to decide the player killing policy within the zone. Whoever claims the whole world is declared the Leader of the Last Outpost!
The Last Outpost has a large unique world, player elected 
clan membership, player regulated pkilling, and a hands-off policy for gods. 
The game accepts both IPv4 and IPv6 connections, and has a built in shell-like CLI with arrow history, hotkeys, and tab completion. The game does not require additional client software, and connections made through the web page are SSL encrypted. 
Whether you enjoy hack 'n slash, following quests, PvP, NPK, playing in clans, or soloing, the Last Outpost has it.
