A game inspired by classic PBM games of the 70's. Players may take any of six different character types, and compete for ownership of an interconnected web of worlds. The gameplay emphasizes battle tactics and diplomacy.

Turns may be received and submitted via email, via web browser, or via a free (and open-source) downloadable client.

RSW provides a rich capability for users to customize game rules and parameters to their liking and experiment with extensions to the game (such as adding new character types).
