Welcome to TMW - Dark Side

This new The Mana World game variant is basicaly a test adding "extensions" over the main and official game without overwrite their maps.

The news are:

Added new mobs, pets, items and maps (at the start, getting it from other TMW variants such as LoF, Brasil servers or Soren's old server).
The new maps will not overrride the official ones, so, the the main game is equal than always, with same mobs, items, quest, etc.
Created a full "Night Side" from the existing official maps: at the moment, the Hurncald maps have ready the Night Side version, with new mobs' structure there.
Created new islands, out of the main maps, with boat and traveler access to allow make the game extendible with new maps.
Create shops that allow buy almost all the released items (rares and pets).
Those released items that you can not to buy at shops will be drops of monsters. This one will force the player to hunt some of the monster as only way to get the item (or buy it to another player that have one).
The rares usually will get a buy price between 1kk and 3kk, and the sell price in regular shop will be the half of their buy cost.
The rares that are usefulls for the waaaaar mode, also will improve the player stats, going up of the asigned ones for Setzer, Forest Bow or Wooden Staff: On this way the rares will allow a good amount of new equipment for the player (no more "fasion" items if that item can to be used to attack mobs XD).
Rares and Rare drops will improve the sell price at regular shop but only are buyables at the Lost Island's NPCs.
Items that you can to get by quest are not buyables at that new shops.
This variant also allow get more than 99 levels: you can be level 127 as top.
At the start, note that we are on beta and test mode. This means that we can to apply changes to the item's prices, drops, items or mob features to finetune the game.
If the game variant is ok for the players and they come to play it, then we will try to add this server data to the main servers' list.
This one is the end of the plan, at the moment.

The tmw-waaaaar.servegame.com was used as test before release the variant: Now have no client updates available and is unused.

How LoF have non free content if all the code is under GPL/GPL license? We wanna use same license that in main project. If there is a list of that "Non free" content, we does not wanna use it.

All our own new stuff are on GNU/GPL licence.
Our Github is here https://github.com/tmwdarkside and all applied pull request vs main game are at our "develop" branch, thank you :)

Ok, so, we does not wanna use that images. How have you noticed that they are nonfree? there is a list of them?

l imagine, for example, that if savior armor sprite is based on Warlord Plate sprite, no one can change the main licence to "non free", and as fair as i know, almost all items i can to see are based on existing ones.

And yes, please rename the server name.
