Founder and Ops Page.
I formed Darkshadows after playing in several lex games. I wanted to create an adult game that was unique. For better of worse the Darkshadows Universe is unique. We play both Masked and an unmasked game.
I was a rookie founder when I first registered Darkshadows on Dalnet on June 21st 2002. As the game grew up so did I. DS was my birthday gift to myself. Over the years I think about the thousands of players that have come and gone from our game. Though I cannot remember each of them now they have all had an impact on myself and the game.
I discovered gaming when I was going through a very hard time in my mid thirties it has become a creative outlet for myself. As we revamped the Vampire game (no pun intended). I found how much people were still interested in role playing and how much it meant to me to have this game.
I am not saying it has not been a struggle it has. At times I have cried over this game and have had my heart broken by events surrounding the players. The players have created a living breathing creature we now call Darkshadows, and I am grateful.
