Hi everyone, it's great to see there are people still interested in Drakan. :)

Several years back, I only saw OOTF on the shelves and also rented TAG, but I never thought I'd end up wanting those two titles in the future. I was brought up to speed when I downloaded and played OOTF about a month ago (thanks Axe!), and recently I was lucky to buy a copy of TAG in mint condition at a local retail store. Ah, the nostalgia!

It's unfortunate that Surreal had to close down, but it's nice to see people still supporting the game. Thanks for keeping this website up. ;D

Hi, glad to have you onboard! There are still a lot of people who are interested in the game but don't post here often. It seems to be the most popular Drakan forum - the Surreal-news forums were not bad too but they are full of spam and unusable. The website is paid for till June 2012 so we will be around till at least then and it will probably get renewed as I don't want to see it go.

I've been playing Divinity 2 which is another game where you can play as a dragon. The dragon bits don't quite play like Drakan (you can't burn ground enemies) but its a great game anyway.

...It's closer to around Winter Solstice 2012?...apparently this coincides with an ancient Mayan Calendar that stops around that date..also the planets are strangely alligned on that day?..

Actually it was supposed to be December 21st, 2012, which is coming up pretty soon. You are right, the original Mayan calender did end on that day, but nobody knows why. The end of the world is just speculation and is not likely. Remember Y2K?

No, it didn't, it's just end of yet another cycle ;)

Hey guys,

haven't been here for a while. Nice job with the server change AT :) The forum looks really nice as well :D Actually after the login the design changes, but nevermind that.
Sorry for the random talking, this is the most offtopic thread I could find so I hope my post won't hurt much O: )...
Just wanted to say hi ^_^ Maybe I'll finally get some proper Internet one day now that I've got a job and will play some multiplayer again :)

Hi Eris, you can change the look of the forums in your user profile. I have four set up if you don't like the default one - I know it does have some issues such as some colours for highlighted topics & the member search does not work properly. I will get round to fixing this sometime but there are other designs to choose from.

Glad you're also keeping an eye on the forum(; Are you back home or are you going to challenge Deutsch internet?
Ironically, I'm still using the same LAN as ages ago, and it still gives me 30-sec disconnect on every server!))
But greatest Hamachi battles are yet to be fought! Image
Well... hopefully :mrgreen:
