The Dark Tides world is a custom maps and content, free to play UO server with its own histories and lore. The setting of the world takes place over a thousand years after cataclysmic events wrought by many evils being unleashed upon the lands of Terra. The Dark Tides World is still under heavy construction, but it does have plenty of content to get new players adventuring for awhile, with lots more to come.
With the three races, Humans, Elves, and Gargoyles, there are plenty of options to start out with. Each of the three races have their own starting cities. These are Aria(human starting town), Noticia(elves starting town), and Firestorm(gargoyles starting town) There are three nations in the world as well. Obelisk is the human and largest of the three nations. The City of Obelisk is the capitol of the nation. Notika the elven nation, and Noticia is its capitol. Firestorm is a city state. There are and will be several Free Cities as well, currently Freeborn is the only free city built.
There are currently over a dozen dungeons/temples that players can adventure in ranging in difficulty levels. Many more dungeons that are currently being remodelled, planned, or slated to be redone. There are at least 1000 custom artifacts in the game. Lots of custom tamable creatures. Unique Status system that allows players to increase there stats, skills, and resistances beyond the starting caps. The Starting Skill Cap being 100 in all skills, Starting total Stat Cap being 250, starting Resistance Cap being 70. Final caps are as follows with the top status level 150 Skill Cap in all skills, 375 total Stat Cap, and Resistances can reach 98 in all resistances. Item bonuses push the boundaries of skill and stat caps. All this provides for an interesting experience for all players new and old.
We have many quests, including drag drop trade quests, word of mouth quests, and more. There is an in game Museum located in the city of Obelisk.
