Old shops will be deleted
In the week from July 8, all old stores will be DELETED FROM THE GAME, and they will not be able to be restored.
Old store is the one that is not active (ie it didn't have rent paid for more than 3 months).
Make sure that you have your rent paid, if you want the store to be open!
Have fun out there!
2x experience, damage, professions and religion experience is now active until next restart!
Have a great Friday and an awesome weekend!
HP bug fix and Pickpocket tools change
We've finally fixed the HP bug!
Also, Pickpocket tools have been changed:
- Cost increased to 10 000 gold;
- Chance of them working successfully reduced by 2x;
- When character had items stolen from them by using these tools, they will receive Awareness buff for 5 minutes, so they cannot have anything stolen from them again.
Rats are useless creatures
Corsair weekly quest will no longer give points for killing rats in that event.
Mentors gold abuse
By definition, a mentor is "an experienced and trusted adviser". Mentors should help because they like the game and want to introduce new players to it.
However, the way mentor system in DarkSwords was built, it was prone to abuse by creating multiple alternate (alts) characters. There were many legitimately good mentors, however recently the amount of abuse on mentor system has increased dramatically.
As of right now, all gold income for mentorship has been disabled. This is a temporary fix to an ages-old problem.
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.
