This doesn't seem free to me, the license says:

"3. You are NOT allowed to take our art (2d/3d files), and use it for
your own devious purpose, either commercial or not. The only exception
is if you want to make some sort of fan website, in which case it is OK
to use some of our art on that site. Of course, taking a screenshot and
using it for whatever you need is perfectly OK. Just don't use our art
for your own game/software. If you really want to do that, then send me
an e-mail, with information on where/how/what/why you want to use, and,
most likely, we can come to a deal."

Which really doesn't seem to meet Debian's definition of free. But maybe
I am wrong?

The same license applies for eternallands-data, obviously. 

As far as the game itself goes, this one is a real showstopper:

"4. If you want to [re]distribute this game, you are NOT allowed to
modify anything. You can, however, distribute some txt/doc/etc file,
with information about you, etc."

You can read the license of this MMORPG here:

Also, this license seems dubious at best.
