Friends and Realm mates,

In celebration of our 21st Year Anniversary, the Dark Age of Camelot team is pleased to announce the return of our King's Tournament!

With the King’s Tournament there will be three winning categories:
  • Solo Kills
  • Keeps Captured
  • “Skill Index” score based on a combination of RvR metrics (including RPs-per-kill and kills-to-deaths ratios, as well as some others).

Crossroad Covenants

Posted by Community | 2022 Sep 02 15:22 -0400 GMT
Our new event starts now! Decide your path, but decide carefully. Not everything is as it seems!

Whisperings across the realms tell of strange deals being made. Deals which affect the power struggle between good and evil in our very frontiers. Players are urged to exercise caution when hunting around the far regions of the realms:

  • Caer Benowyc – and surroundings
  • Bledmeer Faste – and surroundings
  • Dun Crauchon – and surroundings
  • The entirety of Ellan Vannin
Strangely, these regions seem to sit on crossroads. Surely that is nothing more than chance?
