Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny is a computer role playing game developed by Attic Entertainment Software. It was the first game based on the German pen & paper RPG system Das Schwarze Auge by Fantasy Productions.

Due to its success it was translated to English and released by Sir-Tech in June 1993.

Making it work

  • patch to the latest version, if possible
  • Make sure to use the CALL DOS keyword to execute the batch file(s) in order to have the DOSBox -exit switch working.
  • Using the German keyboard layout (dosbox.conf [dos] keyboardlayout=gr) along the German language version of the game is highly recommended.
  • When using a CD image you must use the bin/cue format, the game will not recognize the CD without the audio tracks.
