Draak is rising

Darkstone is a classic 3D-Action role-playing game from the french developer Delphine Software. It was released afterDiablo and Baldur's Gate reactivated and dominated the market for modern role-playing games. The lack of advertising made the sales-situation worse and so Darkstone never became a Blockbuster. But Darkstone offers a lot and the very committed community is already active and works on new quets for the old (1999) game.

Diablo goes 3D

This Slogan was heard in Spring 2002 when Microsoft released the new Blockbuster Dungeon Siege. But this slogan should have been used much earlier when Darkstone was released. Darkstone was one of the first real 3D-rpgs and it had years before Dungeon Siege mostly all of the features that Microsoft promoted for their big competitor.

At the time of Darkstone's release the 3d-graphics were spectacular good, the perspective was able to be turned, panned and zoomed freely and the gameplay was simple and functional. But Darkstone also has got a very atmospheric story and a very high re-playability. The quests are selected per random out of a pool of quests so that there nearly never two times in a row the same quests must be solved.

In Darkstone you're able to control one or two characters - another feature that Diablo never had. In multiplayer sessions players all around the globe can meet to play with each other. Delphinesoft missed to implement a feature like Blizzard's Battle.Net but this disadvantage was connived by the fans and they met at their own server-portals.

Welcome to the Darkstone Database.

I'm going to try to put up all the stuff about Darkstone I can find anywhere. If you want to contribute something please register on this page (look on the left for the "Create an account" link). I'll activate your account as soon as possible.

You can find custom quests with it's screenshots and tutorials int the "Quest Editing" section. For tools like the quest editor or other relevant quest editing stuff (statemachines, tutorials) look into "Files / Downloads".

Please stay tuned while I add the ressources bit by bit (it may take me quite some time ; - )
