Termina theme

Termina is a low contrast colour scheme inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, in particular my memory—or rather impression—of the main area (from which this theme takes its name).

Packages or ports of it are available for Vim and Atom, as well as the Xfce4, RXVT-Unicode (urxvt), and XTERM terminal emulators.
