Balance updates are here!
1) Elves racial ability changed. It now adds physical damage based on the weapon used (like the Orcs. However, disembowel effect will not double the damage)
2) Dwarfs changes - Impregnability now increases health by 1.5x instead of 2x;
- Dwarfs now have durability loss of their equipment reduced by 2x - this means that the equipment will break slower;
- Racial changed to: increase of health by 2x (like the Amphora of Health; does not stack with HP Amphora).
Full reset (religion and guild reset) is now available to all players for free to try out these changes.
A little update on what we're working on currently. These updates are expected to be released this week.

- Added a perk to dwarf's racial ability. More info will follow this week.
- Adding additional times for weekly quests;
- Fixing up bulletin boards.
Thank you for playing on the one true Dark Swords Europe!
What is an MMORPG?
An MMORPG, otherwise known as a Massive Multi-Player Online Role Playing game, in other words - Online RPG,
is a genre of online computer role playing games (CRPG) where considerable amounts of players cooperate with each other
in a virtual world (basically, in a fantasy setting). Like the majority of RPG's,
the role of an invented hero is given a possibility to operate its actions by the player who created it. MMORPG's
differ from one user and small network role playing games set by players in the virtual realm, which continues
to exist whether you are logged on or not. The virtual world is supported by the publisher of game.
In the virtual world, players can carry out various actions that interact with one another.
There are also characters in the game that are operated by the server called Non Player Characters (NPC's),
that include hostile or aggressive monsters. These are called mobs. When a player is engaged in combat with the
world's inhabitants and successfully destroys them, they are then rewarded with compensation and experience points.
The player then can use their received experience points to perfect the skills and abilities of the hero by using the gold coins
(the game currency and/or valuable items) that makes up the basis of the economy between the participants of the game.
In many MMORPG's, players have the ability to form alliances in game with other members that have a
variety of associations, such as guilds and/or clans which allow players to adhere to a certain policy in regards to other
players' orginazations. With some games a player can either decide to remain neutral or choose the more chaotic and destructive path
upon creating their characters and have the option to choose either or with their arrival into the realm - depending on a game's
plot or by the players choice. There are other MMORPG's that require players to pay a fee to their publishers in order to get
a users subscription and to obtain a copy of their game. Darkswords is a completely free MMORPG (Massive Multy-Player Online RPG)
that can be downloaded and played without having to pay any hidden fees or subscriptions.
Players who like MUD (Multi-User Dimension) like DarkSwords too, because we are close to their favorite games.
