Free online multiplayer games? Roy the twit asks......

Hi all, has anyone any recommendations of where to find free online multiplayer games.....the sort of thing you can play with a buddy over the internet?

Nothing too fancy needed, simple RPG's, strategy, Doom-style etc......anything really. I'm clueless as to most developments in the gaming world since MI2, hence haven't the first clue where to look!!!

Cheers!

...Hmm, I'm a Linux user, I've got no idea 'bout games...

But take a look at Parsec, a 3D space shooter type of thing... The development's been dead for a year, but looking at it's sourceforge forum, there seems to be a resurrection-attempt...
Though the network code isn't currently working, AFAIK...

Another interesting game is ClanBomber, a Bomberman-clone...

For strategy, there once was a WarCraft-clone named freecraft, until it got stomped by Blizzard... Its engine is now named Stratagus and there are a few games/ressources available using this engine (listed on the games page), like BoS...
