We are a custom content UO shard, with many adapted utilities and lots of custom content. You will need to download our client patch as well as the client version we are using.

The Dark Tides is based on a pencil, paper, and dice roll playing game of our own creation. The Dark Tides server is set 1000 years after cataclysmic events nearly destroyed the world and evil is once again returning to the lands.

With an uneasy peace between the three races anything could happen. The humans and the kingdom of Obelisk being the largest, Seconded by the Elves and the kingdom of Notika, Gargoyles being the third with their city state called Firestorm.

With the recent end of the Seige of Terra Amora and the loss of their king and queen leaving behind a young prince, the Kingdom of Obelisk has been realing from there war with the orcs. The Elemental Temples have been laid waste and taken by Zamodius and the Nine Devils. The Magical Darkwood Trees that were created a thousand years ago to seal the evil away are dying and suffering from the darkwood blight plague. No one knows what will happen next. Will a hero or heroine arrise to once again cast off the evil? Will that hero or heroine be you?
