An error has been fixed with the use of Santa Bag where it was not giving the 3x carry weight. It is now back to its normal bonus of 3x carry weight, and no longer needs a reinitialization to take effect.
All pets will now increase carry weight. Every 200 paid pet guild levels will give 1% extra carry weight, up to a maximum of 50%.

Shop location 2023, first west of Arkijah
This location has become free for a new shop. A lot of players have shown interest in this location. To make it fair for everyone we have decided to sell the location through an auction process.
When: Sunday, February 11, 21.00-22.00 pm server time.
Where: Arkijah platinum jewel shop, location 2014.
We understand that not everyone who is interested in the location can be online that time. Therefore, it is possible to ask another player to place the bids for you. In this case, you have to inform the Administration in advance the name of this player. If you cannot find anyone to do this for you, you may give your highest bid in advanced to Admin Tib. The closing time for this is Saturday, February 10 at 23.00 pm server time.
During the auction, you can give your bid in platinum as well as in Zenny. In this case, 1 Zenny counts as 2 platinum (i.e. if you offer 100 zenny, the offer counts as 200 platinum).
At the end of the hour, the location will be sold to the highest bidder. If you are the winning bidder, you must pay your bid at the end of the hour. If you do not have the funds to pay the bid you submitted, the shop will be sold to the next highest bidder. After the bid has been paid you will be allowed to place your shop on the location.
Teleports to clanlands
The clans that have won a clan land for 2 months in the clan of the year competition are allowed to sell teleports to these clan lands. Those teleports will be deleted from the game on March 14, 2018. So be sure you used them before this date.
Change in rolling dice
After a reboot of Monday, January 29, it is no longer possible to roll dice when being under the effect of Doppelganger.
Addition to dice game rules
Lately, we got some complaints about the dice games. Players who lost did not pay or did not have the amount of gold/pt which was played for.
For this reason, there will be a rule for playing dice.
If you agree to play dice and you set a bet, you will have to pay if you lose. If you do not pay yourself, the administration will take away the amount of gold/pt for which the bet was set.
In this case, the player who did not receive the gold/pt will have to provide a screenshot to administration.
Before playing a game of dice, make sure the other player has the amount of gold/plat or potions for which the bet was placed. This can be done with showing in trade to each other.
If this is not done, the administration is not responsible for the outcome of the bet.
Rules during events held by DS staffmembers
Before start of an event the staff member will announce which rules will apply during the event
Stealing items from a staff member during an event is strictly forbidden. Prizes have been given by administration to the staffmember and does not belong to the staff member him/herself.
A player who break these rules takes the risk to be sent to pen labor or jail until the event has finished
Clan of the year 2017 competition
1. Which clan gained the most clan prestige in 2017?
This part we have divided into two parts
1. Clan with most won wars, this was clan: SHADOWS with a positive result of 304 wars (won wars minus lost wars)
2. Clan with most war fights, this was clan Empire of Blood with 776 war fights
2. Which clan gained the most clan experience in 2017?
This was clan MafioZ, they gained 2.369.122 clan XP in 2017
3. And which clan has the best clan story over 2017?
We had 3 clans participating in this contest, and since we really could not make a decision which story was best, we decided to give the prize to all 3 clans.
3. WU TANG
The prize for all winning clans is an own clan land for the duration of 2 months. Only members of the clan will have access to this clan land.
This will be effective after a reboot of Monday, January 15.
Congratulations to all the Winners.
