BBS Description/Comments:

Darkrealms is a Bulletin Board System in Toronto Canada. It has been online since 1994 and is one of the oldest and last remaining systems running the MS-DOS Renegade software.

Darkrealms still has a dialup modem line and connections to Fidonet, still functioning as a major Hub system for many years now.

Once upon a time in the 90’s, Darkrealms was a notorious uncensored free-for-all. It was constantly busy with people calling for their daily fix of gaming, chat rooms and message exchange. Many users purchased computers with modems for the sole purpose of calling into Darkrealms and other boards in the area. When the Internet became popular amongst the masses, the BBS scene died but was not forgotten.
