What is Magellan?

Magellan is a full-featured client tool for the play-by-e-mail game Eressea and other PBeM games. It displays a map of your part of the Eressea world, supports you in writing orders, performs many complex calculations for you and is available completely in English.

Magellan Desktop

Magellan requires Java 11 (or higher) und thus can be run on many desktop operations systems like Windows, Linux, or MacOS. Among its many features are:

What is Magellan not?

Magellan is only one among many other client programs for Eressea and is in no way related to the developers of Eressea. To relieve them of unnecessary work please contact the Magellan Community in case you have any questions or problems.

Can I Run Magellan on My Computer?

Magellan is built using the platform independent Java technology and therefore runs on MS Windows, Linux, MacOS X and some other operating systems. However, it requires a moderately powerful machine, especially when your faction grows bigger. The minimum system requirements are a 450 MHz processor and 128 MB RAM, but 800 MHz and 512 MB RAM are recommended. For Magellan, Java 11 or newer is required.

Java? What's That?

Java is a platform independent programming system. Actually, you do not really have to worry about that. After installing Java on your computer once, all you need is to download Magellan. Consisting only of a single file, you can run it like any other program from then on. One of the easiest ways to install Java right now is to download an installer from AdoptOpenJDK. There are several Java distributions. We recommend, for example, Open JDK oder Oracle Java SE.

Is Magellan a Quality Product?

Well, for one thing, Magellan was able to achieve Enno's Seal of Excellence. According to the Eressea poll in December 2001 Magellan seems to be by far the most popular tool among the Eressea players.

Is Magellan Up-To-Date?

Magellan is an open source project with a bunch of developers ensuring that adaptations to the latest Eressea features are always available quickly. Also, the users form an integral part of the Magellan development process by bringing in enhancement requests and new ideas: (Feedback)
