What is Darkness Ends RPG?
Darkness Ends RPG is a free play by action medieval fantasy strategy game. It is an original fantasy setting that has its own unique game system that is easy to learn on the first day.

Is it like Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder?
It may seem like a Dungeons & Dragons game, yet it really is a bit easier in this perspective. You donít have to spend a long time working on the character creation or have to carry a bag of dice to play this game. You donít have to be on at a certain time of the week reporting to a group of players either. This game doesnít take long to play allowing you to enjoy other games throughout the week.

Is the game automated?
No this game is hosted for you live, but you don't have to be present to post your actions using a submission form.

Do I roll at any time the dice for this game?
The GM rolls dice for both your adventurer and the opponents. He also rolls for certain events the adventurer may encounter. There may be times when he asks for you to roll also depending on situation. He uses www.rolz.org (http://www.rolz.org/) for dice rolls, which are recorded for you to see.

Do I adjust the character sheet at anytime during the game?
The GM also adjusts your character sheet for you after each action spreadsheet result.

What exactly can I do in this game?
To play this game you only have to issue 5 action commands on a spreadsheet whenever you have time. You can also write in a journal about your adventurerís experiences after each spreadsheet result.

What is an action spreadsheet?

Your action spread sheet is right below your character sheet that your GM created for you here in the forums at the site.

How do I get started?
Click on Character Creation button at the top part of the website. From there, fill out the form to create your adventurer. The GM will then create a pre-made character sheet and your individual webpage on the site with instructions on how to proceed.

What can I do while I wait for my character sheet to be created?
Once you have registered find the time to read this Playerís Guidebook of which you can either read or download at the site.

Do I have to be on certain days or times in the week to play this game?
You come in whenever you have time. There is no specific time to play the game, yet it would be great if you can post your commands at least once a week.

There are over twenty heroes to choose from.

When exploring the lands what will I find?
Over 1000 different events can happen to your adventurer ranging from encountering monsters, allies, finding magical items, solving riddles, winning the lottery, falling in love, exploring ruins and dungeons, or even inheriting businesses.

Your character sheet is automatically adjusted and you donít have to worry about being on at a certain time of the day or week. To play this game one has to have a strategic mind.
