Please Note: If you are looking for the Darklands discussion List/Group started in 1998 by Darklands FAQ founder Michel "Alsandor" Boucher, that for 20 years (2000-2019) was hosted on Yahoo! Groups, then congratulations you have found it!
We moved here to Groups.IO in October 2019 due to the imminent shutdown of the groups service on Yahoo! at the end of that year. 
With the exception of the activity logs for group admins and moderators, all content of the old Yahoo! Group site
was successfully migrated to this site. One difference that should be noted is that after migration the "Links" section from the old site are now found under Databases here. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you! Welcome!

DARKLANDS - an Historical cRPG, by MicroProse

This is the "darklands" SIG, a Discussion Group/e-Mail LIST for and about the historical adventure Computer Role-Playing Game "DARKLANDS"(TM), by Microprose(R) for PC-based OS's that can support an MS-DOS compatible environment.

Darklands (
DL) is a cRPG set in 15th Century Medieval Germany, or "Holy Roman Empire". Lead your band of intrepid adventurers to face the late Middle-Ages as the people of those times actually believed their world to be -- with all of the magical atmosphere and mythical beasts of old European tradition. Travel hundreds of miles by land, river and sea, visiting over 90 German cities and countless sites along the way. Vanquish Evil from the far reaches of the Empire, and possibly beyond, gaining Fame and Virtue as your ultimate reward!

The DL group was created by fans, for fans, of the game to discuss subjects such as: its technical aspects; reporting bugs; best tips, tricks, and play techniques; gaming news; configuration help and tips for running on new PC HW and OS's; and much, much more... Originally founded in 1998 to be an interactive extension of the Darklands FAQ (hosted on the Darklands Domain), it's purpose remains the promise of making your next adventure into the Darklands the best one yet!
