The Atlas protocol is intended for use in networked roleplaying games, and provides a flexible and extensible means of communicating between the components of a game system. The protocol is transport independent, encoding independent and portable. Atlas-C++ is the standard implementation of the protocol in C++ used by most WorldForge software, and is made available for use in any other system.
