Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online
What makes Netrek different from many other Internet games is that it features real graphics rather than dismal ASCII quasi-graphics. Because of this, you'll need special client software on your computer before you can play--along with a computer capable of supporting the graphics and a network connection with sufficient bandwidth.
If you're lucky, you have the right combination of hardware and Internet connection to do this. You'll need to be using a terminal that runs X Window. If you use the Internet from a command-line UNIX environment, Delphi or similar, you're out of luck. Sad, but true.
