Darkania Online - MMORPG


What is this?
Darkania Online is a FREE to play MORPG (Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) created with the old school (But still amazing) 2D graphics of RPG Maker XP.

Story
Well, here's the "beta" story, its not very detailed but I don't wanna write the full long version :

The God Juupon created the universe and a planet that was named after its God, and all other living things. Satisfied with his first creation, the God of the universe, Juupon, decided to create 3 other planets (also named after their Gods) : the planet of the God, Abyss (created for a natural balance between good and evil.), the planet of the God of War, Faix (Where Humans and Elves get their powers) and the planet of the God of Love, Livie (created for a natural balance between good and evil.). To have the less evil possible, Juupon made Abyss' planet much smaller, which made Abyss come to hate Juupon. After a million of years worth of work, the God Abyss pushed himself (the planet) against the planet Juupon (which is also the God). Wanting to save the world he created, Juupon sacrificed his life in order to fusion Abyss and Juupon (the planets physically, not the Gods.) reducing the amount of damage by a lot (only a small part of the world has been affected by this event.). Not to dishonor their God and Creator, the Humans and Elves of the planet Juupon, renamed the planet Darkania, meaning Dark Path in some old ancient language. The God of war Faix was now no match against the new powers of Abyss, he gave the Humans and Elves his remaining powers before forcefuly serving the new God of the Universe, Abyss. The Humans and Elves used these powers at their advantage and revolted against Abyss, forcing him to fight back with his monster minions. And so The war between Juuponians (A title given to the heroes fighting everyday to protect and save Darkania, so basically, you.) and Abyssians (Supporters of Abyss) had begun.

A small and quickly made video just to show you the very basics of the project. It's obviously not ready to be put in Beta, but it's getting there thanks to all our supporters Laugh

The End!?
So Yeah, this game is english, everything about it is english though the server is hosted in Canada/Quebec so there will be french players. Servers will also be hosted in America (Possibly Europe, depending on the numbers of players from Europe.) to reduce the lags in your region.

http://www.darkania-online.tk (The website is also still in beta but its always fun to look on the website to see the latest updates Smile )

Sorry for the quality of my english!

Haha, yes they are enemies xD. I wanted a small and easy to kill creature Sticking Out Tongue, so instead of monsters, i started with animals. They are extremely weak and pretty defenceless.

Thanks for all the feedback Sticking Out Tongue. So I created a "table" of a few monsters from lvl 1 to lvl 35 (i think)
(Str is strenght btw)
Drops : The % is the chance out of 100 that the monster will drop 1 of that item.

Update
Skills

Spoiler: Highlight to view

this is just to show how I decide the affected stats. The video is in french, I'm sorry but, well I am french, I just prefer english xD. But Everyone else working with me (except one person) is French, so we decided to do the video in french. I recently added a new skills which is a Defence Mod and a Fire Slash skill.

Were-wofl Skill level 1.

Update
I Decided to create a quick "beta" of what the world map may look like, i still have to add that brownish pirate map look, city names, map names, etc.

Spoiler: Highlight to view

Something i forgot to mention : The "gore" effect (blood gushing after killing a monster) can be turned on and off depending on what you prefer Laugh

Even though I have school, I'm gonna work extremely hard (or try) this weekend.
Things left to do :
- finish the first 10 to 15 maps, this includes ; beginning map, desert town, desert town shop interior's, desert valley and a PVP Map.

- Adding Weapons and Armors for each class (atleast 1 per 8 to 10 levels.)
- Adding the first skills (3 skills that every class has and 10 skills (some classes have more or less) unique to their class.)
- Adding all the monsters from level 1 to 35.
- Fixing the updater <--- Not really important for now.

This release will be for MODS Only ( and my close friends.).

The public version won't be released until all the monsters from level 1 to 35 are added to the game AND the first boss in the first "big" (yet smallest) boss dungeon is created. About 30 to 60 quests will be available to do (and more added via updates.)

Weapons, Items, Armors and Skills can all be added via Updates afterwards.

The Public Version Should Be Released between September 30th to October 15th. (Mod Version will be released before September 30th, so about a week or two after, the public version is released.). Look forward to our great opening events and Halloween events ~~~

Keep in mind that there's always room for new Mods : Mapping, Website, Pixel Artists and/or Making quests.

Whoh. I thought this game died since the site was down. -_-'

Any thing else I should be able to do for this game?

I know I can map, (last one didn't do good though) be a pixel artist, and create a website.

Lol yeah the website was hosted on an old website of mine "pixels-world.com" but i thought i had a one year contract (so i didn't pay it for a few months) and well since i owed money they shut down my website Sticking Out Tongue. But i'm gonna host it from somewhere else soon.

About Maps, I think this could work but its harder, so here's what I had in mind ; I'm a very lazy person Sticking Out Tongue, but when something motivates me, (like understanding a math problem : I'm ready to do the 2nd one.) I give it my 100% (like Darkania Online Laugh). But it sometimes takes a while to recreate the map inside the game (because unlike RXMP, the Map editor only works tile by tile.). So it would be much easier and faster (Since I'm a lazy person Sticking Out Tongue and i prefer jumping to skills, weapons and quests than mapping.)

So either you or someone else keeps making maps and I get someone else to add them to the Map Editor and then send me the Map file (which is compatible with the game, so i take the map file and just add it to the game without having to recreate it tile by tile.) or you or someone else can do it directly in the Map Editor (Though it is longer - too me.). But i could easily get someone to recreate the Map inside the map editor and send the map file to me.

So, my biggest problem is actually maps while other people make maps I can progress on programming, adding new features, skills ,weapons etc. Plus the person i started this project with is lately always busy so I've got more work Sticking Out Tongue.

What's the program used to edit the map and used to export it to a map compatible with your game?

And if the program exists, what format should I send future maps in?

Also, what kind of map would you recommend making next?

I actually just thought about this : nevermind, you need a MySQL Database to open the Map Editor. So just keep making them in RMXP and I or Tommy (person whom i started the project with.) will add it into the game (I'll force him to do it :lol3: ).

So right now what I need is ummm o_o, a desert map with mountains about 100 x 100(the map, not the mountains) (it can go from 80 x 80 to 120 x 120, so anything in between, do as you please Gasp.). So i have no specific demands on this one aslong as its a desertic map with mountains. I actually need 2 like this and at the end of the second one add a little grass please Sticking Out Tongue. (if you decide to make it.)

So take your time on these maps, I'm in no rush since I'll be working on Skills, Weapons and Armors while you make the map or maps. The 2nd one isn't important right now, i can always add it via update.

So I hope you want to do this map and if you do, good luck Laugh.

P.S : If you guys follow and or support D.O please make an account on : http://darkania-online.freegametalk.com/forum.htm , the forum is not up to date at all, we've been really too busy (and its useless with only 3 members Sticking Out Tongue). So by signing up you keep us motivated to continue our hard work, since we now know, a lot of people are waiting to play Smile.

Here's a quick video to show you a few (very few) new things added. Most skills and weapons added are just animations meaning what's now left to do : for skills : script the skill. For weapons/armors/items : Add them to the game and make sure they are positioned nicely.

In this video you will see :
- A desert town (The first "big" town : created by s33kerbot from Rpg-palace.)
- A few skills : Rock transformation, Stealth (both have shadows, i need to delete that. Stealth cloaks will also be added to the game.)
- Other stuff : Item description system ; PVP Zone (skull in the corner.), A weapon shop interior..
And possibly more Sticking Out Tongue.

Sorry for the crappy video quality :l. The next things I will release will only be screenshots and news. So I will not post anymore videos until I send a demo of the game to the other mods. We'll record a few videos including one where we fight the dangerous 1st Boss in his dangerous cave Smile.

didn't double check the video before uploading it Sticking Out Tongue.

Darknia Online has decided to release a public version of the game where players can only play in 2 or 3 different PVP maps.
You will be able to buy skill books, items, etc. Once the public maps are finished (atleast 15 ; including house interiors, PVP maps and more.) we will release them via update and you will now be able to play Darkania Online the "normal" way.

So Public version should be released this week (except if there are problems with the server.).

Even though you are limited to a few PVP maps, you can still have some fun and test out the skills and items, create a guild or start the screenshot event! You can get rewards for inviting friends if and only if they AND you make an account on the forum. The website is still have .PNG image issues, but no worries it'll be working in no time.

Like I said before, this version is a public release so EVERYONE can play. Please report your bugs and errors on the forum.
