Darker Realms was originally based on a medieval theme. However, since it has been continually running since 1990, it is now huge with many differently themed areas.
Just a few of the many areas in Darker Realms are: Doctor Who, Star Wars, Egypt, Norse Mythology, Vampires etc., the solar system, futuristic cities, and underground smugglers.
At Darker Realms you can sign in and immediately play. There is no required training. There are help files, an automated tour guide, bins full of free equipment for level 5 and lower, and areas just for level 5 and lower if you want help to start out. However, what you do and how you do it is up to you.
There are guilds that you can join if you do desire, but you don't have to, and it is usually best to play a bit before deciding which you would like to join.
The guilds available are:
Alchemists, Barbarians, Cybertechs, Dragons, Paladins, Mages, and Shape Shifters.
Darker Realms is a wonderfully complex set of worlds with well written rooms. There are many things to discover, riddles to unravel, hidden things to find, quests to solve, and creatures to kill.
