Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
This day, the 17th of March was made into a holiday in the early 17th century. Today it is celebrated worldwide by going to church services, wearing green attire, and, of course, having a beer (or many) with your friends.
As with other holidays, we celebrate this holiday in DarkSwords as well!
From the evening of March 17 server time until the server reboot of March 21 you can catch leprechauns which will give you a reward of 500 plat if you manage to catch them.
Info about these leprechauns can be found here
It’s not truly Saint Patrick’s Day without a beer (or 2 or 3 or more…).
Visit the Spring Store in Travellers Well to purchase a recipe for Green Ale.
This ale has a similar effect to a Mark of Valor.
CHANGE IN FISHING
After lots of old shoes have been removed from the bottom of the DarkSwords Sea, Scientists noticed that there are hidden treasures as well on the bottom of the sea.
This means that while fishing, you now have a chance to catch a Treasure Chest!!!
This Chest can contain the following items:
Gold: 10, 100, 1000, 10.000 or 100.000 gold
Fishes of the 3d category: 3 Pollack, Beryx, Keta or Flathead Asp
Ancient Amphora's: 2 HP or MP Amphora's
We wish you all the luck in your future fishing adventures

Winners of the Valentine competition
First of all our apologies for the late announcement of this competition.
Amber games Administrator has read all ode gra's and stories and have chosen the winners
The first competition was the DarkSwords “Couples Election"
Winner of this competition is Floest
The second was the proposal competition, it turned out that our players are a bit shy, because there were no competitors in this competition.
Third was the ode to the partner gra.
The winner is Buu Buu with a very nutty ode to Puxkaa
Congratulations to you both, you will get 20 calls of hearts and also a "honeymoon" on one of the fishing boats with an increased chance on catching fish.
It will take a bit of time to prepare the boat for your honeymoon, but we will hand you the tickets as soon as the boat is ready.
An error has been fixed with the use of Santa Bag where it was not giving the 3x carry weight. It is now back to its normal bonus of 3x carry weight, and no longer needs a reinitialization to take effect.
All pets will now increase carry weight. Every 200 paid pet guild levels will give 1% extra carry weight, up to a maximum of 50%.

Shop location 2023, first west of Arkijah
This location has become free for a new shop. A lot of players have shown interest in this location. To make it fair for everyone we have decided to sell the location through an auction process.
When: Sunday, February 11, 21.00-22.00 pm server time.
Where: Arkijah platinum jewel shop, location 2014.
We understand that not everyone who is interested in the location can be online that time. Therefore, it is possible to ask another player to place the bids for you. In this case, you have to inform the Administration in advance the name of this player. If you cannot find anyone to do this for you, you may give your highest bid in advanced to Admin Tib. The closing time for this is Saturday, February 10 at 23.00 pm server time.
During the auction, you can give your bid in platinum as well as in Zenny. In this case, 1 Zenny counts as 2 platinum (i.e. if you offer 100 zenny, the offer counts as 200 platinum).
At the end of the hour, the location will be sold to the highest bidder. If you are the winning bidder, you must pay your bid at the end of the hour. If you do not have the funds to pay the bid you submitted, the shop will be sold to the next highest bidder. After the bid has been paid you will be allowed to place your shop on the location.
