Phoronix: Open-Source RPG Projects Worth Mentioning
Earlier this week on Phoronix I noted the new release of the GNU RPG Engine. To no surprise given its very rudimentary feature-set for a game engine in 2014, it was laughed at by many Phoronix readers and several were appalled it is even a GNU project...
its Fork Valyria Tear http://valyriatear.blogspot.de/
and The Mana World https://themanaworld.org/
and its client (eAthena ragnarok server & manaserv compatible) & still upcoming server engine
and the mapeditor tiled
Worth noting, IMO, is that FIFE also supports programming games in C++ (although the easiest way is probably using Python) and that gemrb is planned to become a general purpose RPG engine (well, for the ones following the same style, although the ruleset is planned to become flexible), not only Infinity anymore.
IŽd also mention PlaneShift. While the content is not under a free software license, the client and server code is. And its quite evolved already. I enjoy playing it.
sadly there's a problem with distributing it, the license and the game itself.

I tried once to compile it, but it didn't really work well, so I gave up.
The license is described in their wiki:
Why does nobody ever mentioned EasyRPG?
IIRC, it was mentioned.
