Wurm Online is a game of darkness. Really, the entire world is balanced on what will happen after the sun sets.

Even the most dour dwarf or happy hobbit must take a break now and then from questing for a time of merriment, games and celebration.

Having looked at Pailaka and New Kamaloka, we're as pleased about Lineage II's Gracia Part 2 update as anyone, but we have to admit we're now a little... creeped out.
