skins site where you can submit and download skins. Should be up and going pretty soon.
Chat room bot down for maintenance
The chatroom bot is currently
down for improvements.
Utopia and I were playing
Chaos' Corner and managed to spend all our money, but I guess faith was with us. We
decided to go our separate ways and make some money. I started a quest and Utopia decided
to join a game on Kali. He joined and
the person left the game. The WHOLE town was filled with 10,000 gold pieces. We picked it
up and counted it........27.5 Million Gold Pieces. Anyways whoever did this we appreciate
it. we believe his name was Dark Knight on Kali. If ya wanta see screenshots click here.

I have installed a new forum
for the Darkstone Realm. Feel free to post anything you like. This forum should be very
helpful for problems concerning Darkstone and general discussions. Check it out here!
I have also set up a ladder
and multiplayer service for Darkstone players. Delphine software has created a wonderful
game with the exception of good nultiplayer service. This page should help that
problem. CLICK HERE
I need some help with the
site. If you have a pretty good html experience and are pretty active on the net. EMAIL ME. Try to include a
page you've done if possible. Thanx!

The site updates are about to
be continued. Much thanks to Dustin Malik for creating the site and keeping it up. I (Annihilator) will now be webmastering the site. I have added a new forum. Should be a
lot easier to use. All you have to do is register to use it. Start your post! A lot of
things has happened in the Darkstone World since the last update to this page. I will try
to get the page up-to-date as soon as possible. The quest editor has finally arrived. I'll
be adding a section on the downloads page where you can download and send in user made
quests. I will post the updated patches and new skins on the download page.
The Quest Editor has finally
arrived!....You can download it here
or you can go to the downloads
page and get it. A tutorial
is available for the Quest Editor. I finished the complete tutorial and I have to say that
it helped me learn nearly of aspect of the Quest Editor. Darkstone Realm will allow users
to send in their quest and have them posted. So start sending the quests in. You can also
goto the downloads page and get user quests , send in your quests, or get the officially
released quests. I will also try to answer any questions that you have.

Skins are very popular in the
Darkstone World. Skins allow you to customize your character for other people and yourself
to see. Quite a few skins have already been created. I will post these skins on the downloads page.
To use the skins, you must have your Darkstone updated to at least 1.04. You can also send
your personal skins to Darkstone Realm and they will be posted for others to use.

Delphine Software does
an amazing job on the patches they release for Darkstone. The game gets better and better
each time they release a patch. I will list the patches here and on the downloads page
for you to download.

Hotgames has given there 2 cents on Darkstone. I
guess the reviewer hates RPG's so I don't know why he is writing this review. He
gave Darkstone 1 out of 5. Here is what he said.
"Theres a reason many people
grow out of their Dungeons And Dragons phase, you know - sooner or later the adolescent
yearning to spend their entire weekends saving some ridiculously proportioned damsel from
some nameless dragon wears off and people grow up. Darkstone holds firmly onto its tired
RPG cliches like a child would a teddy bear, which is kind of cute and sad at the same
time. In Darkstone you see the medieval world through the eyes of some hapless adventurer,
whose job it is to spend half a year or so underground finding treasure, slaying evil
creatures and gaining experience. Somebody has to do it, we guess."
I say that's one hell of a review. I
know you'll want to check this out. Click here. But there has two
be one positive thing Hotgames awards to Darkstone. If you check on the left side on
the review page you will see the Hotgames top 5 RPG's. And wouldn't you know
it. Darkstone #1.
I was surfing the web tonight
and noticed Gamepower has pumped out a 3 page
review on Darkstone. They seemed to really enjoy the game giving it a 3.5 out of 4.
Along with the review comes a movie. (I don't know what the movie shows so can
someone please e-mail me.) Here is a list of the pros and cons they gave
PROs: Gorgeous 3-D
environment; easy rotational and zoom controls to change your view; simple magic and
combat techniques; it's got that elusive fun factor.
CONs: Doesn't get
difficult until after a few quests; easy to waste manna by using wrong controls.
Hmm out of all the cons I
would have never guessed you would waste manna by using the wrong controls but hey I never
wrote the review. Go check it out here.
