Frankly, Darkscape was everything I really wanted out of Runescape. Its was dark, fun, gritty, and awesome. Here are some ways I think Darkscape could be augmented so it could be a viable platform.

Combat:

PvM and PvP Combat should be straight up Legacy or EoC mode, with separate servers for each. No special PvP modes, you die, you drop what you are carrying except for your money pouch. This may seem extreme, but read below:
a. Every new player starts with a fresh account and is safe from PvP for 24 hrs. There also needs to be an EXTENSIVE tutorial that lets people know exactly what they are about to get in to.
b. Banks and GEs are 100% safe areas, with a green square on the map.
c. Players should be able to hire guards/knights, NPCs that can protect them.
d. Members of a clan cannot attack members of the clan they are in except in duels.
e. People that have accepted friend requests should not be allowed to attack each other, opening up the possibility of friends to protect one another if they arent in the same clan.
f. All duels are staked, and can happen anywhere, not just in Duel Arena.
g. Ride-able horses... This way you can outrun pkers that are on foot... Also, damn, why dont we have horses yet? I am serious about this!
h. The Slayer skill should be an integral part of Darkscape. Raise the Monster threat in Runescape by having bands of NPCs attack certain areas, and have more Slayer masters with tons of tasks and rewards so that PvM is still a rewarding option. Otherwise, people will focus solely on the PvP aspect.
i. Have players be able to go around in purchasable disguises. Imagine going around as an imp!

Other:

1. Advertise the platform!!! Inform people about it!!!!
2. Have a separated F2P and P2P, perhaps F2P members can only access 2 of the GE, and are limited as to where they can go.
3. Have Slayer be an F2P skill(see why above in Combat)
4. Dont make any other drastic changes to the platform. It doesn't need to be Hugely different from Runescape.

I agree. DarkScape was really run and I wish it hadn't been removed. While the random release of it was cool, I think having advertisement would've been a lot better. I also agree with the worlds idea... however I don't agree with the rest of your post.


These are nice too, but DarkScape was accessable by free players as well - the entire game. There were no P2P restrictions... unless if you're talking about a potential re-release requiring membership?
