As per the news in game, there has been a massive overhaul and update to the realms of Dark Castle.

The world is now divided into a series of continents that include the following:
  * Main Continent (Sorpigal)
    (to be named later via player vote)
  * The Diamond Isle (New Thalos)
  * Kyu Shi'i Kaze (Far Reach)
  * Occoran
  * The Underdark

- As noted above, three of these continents have a hometown with safe rooms, guilds, and a consignment house.
- Due to the ongoing changes from these powerful magics, the continents have not yet settled and can thus be traversed freely, both by magical and non-magical means.  This may not always be the case in the future.
- In addition, numerous BRAND NEW areas have been installed.

A tremendous debt of thanks is owed to Sergio for coordinating this massive remapping of the world and writing the new areas.

Special thanks as well to Petra for the new Na'lleadra (Drow) and Underdark edits.

Details are as follows:


Existing areas relocated to The Diamond Isle:
- the Seaport of Sanderling
- the Crystal Keep and Dungeons
- the Kingdom of Thelia
- the Ruined Kingdom of Damar
- zykeia
- Everwinter
- the Sun's Anvil Desert and adjoining areas
  (New Thalos, Rainbow's Edge, Phryaz, Vhryllian Cleft, etc.)

Existing areas relocated to Kyu Shi'i Kaze
- the Shaolin Monastery
- the Templar Catacombs

Existing areas that have moved within the Main Continent:

- the trail to Mintia
- the Castle of Light and The Castle of Dark
- St. Colin's Monastery

New Transition Areas (Novice Level) in Kyu Shi'i Kaze:

Again, this would have been nearly impossible without the efforts of all the amazing Immortal staff we have working on Dark Castle.  Kudos to all!
