Thanks and welcome to the forum, it's nice to see new members every now and again which shows there's still interest in the game. Ill be renewing the domain again this year and server operating costs haven't increased so we are good for now and hopefully for a few more years yet.

I dug out my 11 years old profile to say thank you, Arokhs Twin, for keeping this site and Drakan legacy alive.
Back then I had a couple of web sites dedicated to Drakan bookmarked and now this one is the last still standing.
I hope it will still be here until the next coming of Drakan game as a reboot/remake (or reskin :shock: ) in the coming years.
Thank you.

Thanks & it's nice to see you have stuck around for the last 11 years.
Hopefully this site will still around when the remake / Drakan 3 comes out (wishful thinking) :)

There's still some fan made content coming up such as the remake in the unity engine.

Welcome :)

I hope Drakan will be still alive along with Arokh's Lair forum. Very good that the forum will continue to function.

We should promote Drakan series, its story and building community. The way is of promote Drakan with help popular game YouTubers that make reviews of old games,Nostalgic Flashbacks. The older games have value. We can write to them :) They also want to make some ideas about old games so they can make reviews about Drakan :)

Here list of potential YouTubers and Youtube Accounts:
https://www.youtube.com/user/VieuxJeuxByMorlock/videos - French channel about old games.
https://www.youtube.com/user/TVGRYpl - Polish YouTube account about games.

And many others

We can promote Drakan by create mods, artworks, fan fiction,remakes or minigames. And above all Dragon forums such as Polish forum about Dragons http://forum.smoki.eu/ even Drakan:OOTF topic in this forum is very popular. Creating new content/fan fictions we can reach much more fans than ever before.

When I first encounter Arokh's Lair I searched for additional Drakan Content, Patch All in one for example. And above all Drakan OST ,unreleased music and Level Editor(unfortunately It is little bit complicated :) ). When I was younger I really had trouble with Multiplayer feature in Drakan OOTF, I tried many solutions. So I was lurker here in this forum:)

And of course this forum make OpenDrakan: A Drakan Remake much more popular.Posting there topic I have committed to finish this remake :)

Thank you Arokhs Twin, admins and users :)

Glad to see the love for this game is still alive. I worked for Psygnosis when it was released and played several alpha and beta versions. I was friends with the lead program manager.

I'd love to see a new version on a modern console!

Cheers all!
