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?
