What is Legend:

An Overview

    Legend is a text-based virtual world based on "the world the way they thought it was." It's history with a twist... you can wander through the grimy streets of London in 1841, and read the countless posters tacked on the walls decrying the latest in a series of vicious murders. You can explore Celtic Ireland and trade magical knowledge with the Daoine Sidhe. You can fly a Sopwith Camel over the trenches of the Somme, or you can seek an audience with Queen Elizabeth.

    If the people of that time believed in magic, you will find it there. If they were famed for their musical arts, you will find musicians of note. If they studied the lore of herbs and medicines, you too can gather up fennel or feverfew and brew tisanes and teas.

    Three great eras of time are present in Legend: the Ancient, Medieval, and Industrial periods, each with a full complement of areas that you can walk through and explore, inhabited by villians and monsters, heroes and ordinary folk. This is no ordinary mud, but rather one filled with adventures in a place both familiar and strange.

    Below you will find a wealth of information about the world of Legend. Step into history, and discover the world your ancestors knew...
