This project is part of the GNU Project.

Dominion has detailed models for settlement, battles and production, and the parameters affecting race and the development of technology can
be customized by editing simple text files.

Dominion was written in the late 1980s/early 1990s, and uses "character graphics" (with the venerable "curses" library). It also assumes that all users can log in to the same computer to run the game. It has not been updated to use bitmapped graphics and a socket connection model.
