Welcome in Le Royaume des Ombres !


Le Royaume des Ombres (also know as The Realm of Shadows) is a mod changing a majority of elements of the original game. It works with version 1.10 of the game, but it is possible to run it regardless of your version. The mod immerses you in a new world, full of new monsters, items, quests, dungeons, etc ... and even another story!

You can visit this world in the guise of seven different classes: Warrior, Guardian, Assassin, Hunteress, Ritualist, Necromancer or Sorceress. Each of these classes have unique and varied talents. The mod has been designed to offer an adventure on average twice as long as the original game. You will also pass into new regions based on the world of Diablo III, and will be taken to overcome terrible opponents. In addition to changing what is already existing in the original game, Le Royaume des Ombres offers new possibilities to the player, as new items, places or features that do not exist in the original game.

Overview of the mod:

Hey, I'm playing through Act 1 and can't seem to get a quest item to work. I got the three parts of the Triune pendant and successfully combined them, but right clicking it doesn't seem to do anything. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Fantastic mod and I'm highly enjoying it. However, there are some major ground breaking bugs in the game.

- Whenever I use Whirlwind (Barbarian or Warrior) long enough, the skills can become blocked and thus inhibits me from using it again.
- Sorcess' Meteor: OP as hell, it can melt almost any enemies on screen regardless whether if they have fire immunities on them.
- [ S29.postimg.org ] This image you're looking at is the most groundbreaking bugs of all. All of the NPCs who were, supposebly, in the main quest hub somehow, for some reason gets teleported in the battlefield and as soon as I approach the area, the game crashes.

I'll report in more stuff once I catch something in the loom.

Also, I might add, you should change the SuperUnique's items' colour to purple. I must've missed like a bajillion of those already.

Hello I need help as I am new to this mod, how do I tell if I am playing on this mod instead of the non-modded version of Diablo 2? I am running the mod through D2SE however I am confused because I see none of the custom items in my version as I see in the screenshots, any help?

Xaphan67 Bravo for this mod, same quality as median or Eastern Sun.
BUT a really big problem is the random crash "player has too many items" on D2game\player\plrsafe.cpp line#1811.
This appear even in town with no action and size of the .ds2 file seems to be not in relation, even with a 4k size and first page of personal stash empty.
I note that's happen more frequently when I get many characters, today I try with only one.
After the crash I don't see any change in th stashes but player inventory became silly items removed and old items reappears ??

PS : I try to register in Phrozen keep but I don't know the name of the third act boss.

You can only see the available runewords through scrolls, which in turn you must collect. They are pretty damn difficult to come across with.

You must run the game on '/player 8' just for it to drop frequently.

Hello,

Fame is used to increase skills on your 3rd tab wich are called specialities. This is where you can increase your gear level. You need to get enought fame to be able to increase the skill that look like a + on the specialities tree (Called 'Path of victory').

One thing to know : Each time your fame bar is full, that mean you can increase this skill. So check that bar to not waste fame as you do not earn fame if your fame bar is full.

I wish this were automatic. Kinda a pain when you look down and see it full and aren't sure if you've wasted 5 fame or 5,000.
