* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Garrethians seems to be european, Thorwaylians are norse while the Novadi or Tulamnids are arabs, persians and similar. Marascan may or not be a counterpart to Japan. The elves of Tie'Shianna have a distinct Egyptian look.

An MMO (which may or may not be Drakensang 3) called VideoGame/DrakensangOnline was released and launched after several months of beta testing. However, it's ''Drakensang'' InNameOnly, having no connection to the [[TheDarkEye original games' setting]] whatsoever (really, it has about as many ties to the original ''Drakensang'' series setting-wise as ''VideoGame/FarCry2'' has to [[{{VideoGame/FarCry}} the first part...]]) and abandoning the mechanics as well. A MMORPG by a different developer based on both the setting and rules of ''TheDarkEye'' has since been developed and is currently in its beta phase, but it's called ''Herokon Online'' (lacking the rights to the ''Drakensang'' name).

** Indeed they are not - in the [[{{TabletopGame/TheDarkEye}} pen-and-paper RPG]] itself, they are not classified as an undead creature, being "normal" monsters instead who merely have corpses as their main diet (compare to the "necrophages" of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher''). They still attack almost everything on sight, though, and their bite is infectious (due to the corpse-eating), so there are cosmetic similarities to undead.

The first game takes place aroud the city of Ferdok, where you travel after your old [[TheObiWan friend/mentor]] Ardo of Boarstock sends you a letter asking for your help. However, after your arrival you are informed that Ardo was seemingly the latest victim of a serial killer.

The game itself has an old school approach to [=RPGs=]. Gameplay is similar to the VideoGame/NeverwinterNights series and BaldursGate.

** The locations of all the pieces of the Storm Guardian's set or, in the expansion, the Tie'Shianna set.
** The [[spoiler:Behind the Fire Falls]] area has five hidden rewards, at least three of which most players will miss if they do not know of them beforehand. One requires you to stop moving at a precise moment (which you will not, because there's no reason to do so).

** In [=TRoT=] you have to warn two fellow agents from a trap, [[spoiler: the first one who you'll warn becomes a party member, [[PlayerPunch the second one is killed in a cutscene.]]]]
** Also, where to find all the pieces of the Storm Guardian's set or, in the expansion, the Tie'Shianna set.
** The [[spoiler:Behind the Fire Falls]] area has five hidden rewards, at least three of which most players will miss if they do not know of them beforehand. Two are simply impossible to find (except by pure luck), one requires you to stop moving at a precise moment (which you will not, because there's no reason to do so) and one is very tedious to figure out (a series of switches that has to be activated in the right combination ''at the first attempt'' - cue lot's of trial and error via loading saved games).
