Dawn of Light

The Dark Age of Camelot Server Emulator


A Dark Age of Camelot open source server emulator project written in C# started in 2003 by fans. We have created from scratch a server framework with database, packet and server logic.

The project aims were to create a framework which not only allowed for live-like behaviour but completely custom rulesets.


DOL Server - The server application

DAoC Portal - An application which allows your game client to connect to custom servers.

Featured Servers

Uthgard - Our most successful server focusing on classic DAoC and Realm vs Realm fights in Old Frontiers.

Storm D2 - Our custom flagship server focusing on a Diablo 2 ruleset in the DAoC world.
