Welcome to The DarkRealms UniverseEdit
The DarkRealms universe is centered around a small fictional town in the North East called Ravencrest. The epicenter of the strange supernatural occurences seems to be the old Ravencrest manor that makes up the main building of the college there, Ravencrest University. Lord Ravencrest donated his large manor to the city to make a college at the turn of the 20th Century then vanished. Since his disappearance, a lot of strange and unusual stuff has happened on the university grounds and the surrounding town.
