You may have found the answers to many of your questions after browsing this site, and it's possible that you've learned a lot of things about Dragon Court that you didn't know before. But one question that you may have in mind is who's responsible for writing all of these guides.
My name is randomorange and most of you have probably never heard of me before, but perhaps that will change in the future. I was once known under a different name that older players might be familiar with. As you can easily see by referring to the URL of this website, this used to be the website for my clan, Sky Riders, a clan that existed as one of the top clans in Dragon Court from February 2000 to December 2002. In an effort to make my clan site distinct from other clan sites, I dedicated a lot of time in writing help articles to assist newer players with the game. Whether or not these players decided to join my clan didn't matter to me because I knew what it was like to be in their shoes and not have an up-to-date help website to refer to when I was new.
I stopped playing in December 2002 and it wasn't until May 2006 that I decided to play Dragon Court again. After finishing my freshman year of college, I didn't have anything else to do and decided that playing Dragon Court again would be a great way to pass the time. Although I was surprised to learn that this help site was still generating some hits while I was away, I knew that I couldn't allow it to remain in its current state. Many changes had been made to the game over the years and it was pretty embarassing to see so many grammatical mistakes in my articles.
(Side note: Those of you who have seen the old help site (January 2001 - July 2006) may have also noticed that there were many hostile references against cheaters and people who possessed massive amounts of cheated goods. The articles were written during a time when cheaters and people who possessed cheated goods were severely discriminated against for their practices. It appears that the players of today are much more lenient with the issue of cheated goods.)
Luckily, Sky Rider wasn't taken away by the reaper and I got a hold of his password after rummaging through old papers. Although I had lost all but 6 characters, I created several new ones to get a feeling of how things had changed since then. It wasn't until July 2006 that I'd learned enough about the changes to completely rewrite this website. Roughly two weeks were spent updating the old guides and many new ones were added to the site. I also discarded sections that were no longer relevant to the site and all of the DC2 sections were removed.
I'm proud to say that none of the material from this help page has ever been taken from other websites without permission. All of the information that is included on this site was either compiled by myself or with the help of others who wanted to lend a helping hand. Updates are still being made to this site on a regular basis to reflect changes that have been made to guides or the game.
This is my way of giving something back to the game and its players for providing me with so many hours of entertainment in the past. If you have any questions or suggestions, please send DC mail to randomorange. Please don't send mail asking for items or antiques that I may have had in the past. The few antiques that I still have are listed under the Antiques Directory.
