It seems that the 'new' master server has gone off line for some reason - everyone is having the same problem. Zikken who owns the new master server hasn't been around on the forums either. I seem to remember a post on the surreal forums which said that he no longer has a permanent Internet connection and is unable to host the server. The only way to play now is if you know the IP address of the server or use gamespy instead.
Try getting a program call "The All-Seeing Eye" (ASE for short). It's become very popular throughout both the Quake and Counter-Strike communities, and you can also find Drakan servers within it. It is very easy to use and can do some very complex thing in an easy way. http://udpsoft.com/eye
