Please Note: This site is the successor to the Yahoo! Groups site "Darklands", http://groups.yahoo.com/darklands. Yahoo! Groups, as it had been known, has ended; it and the "darklands" group there remains, but functionally only as a LISTServ-like email forwarding service. All users of the old Y! darklands group are strongly encouraged to move over to this group, its official successor, instead. New user activity on Yahoo!groups ended 2019-10-28; then all user-contributed content was deleted (removed from direct Web access) 2019-12-14. The last day to request personal backups of group contents from Yahoo! was originally 2019-21-31, but then extended to 2020-01-31 due to public demand. With the exception of the activity logs for group admins and moderators, all content of the old Yahoo! Group site has been migrated to this site! (Note: for the migrated "Links" from the old site can be found under Databases here.) Please feel free to visit the old site, just please remember that it is deprecated and our support there is extremely limited. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you! Vielen dank!

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!
