The Dragons Domain has had extensive additions and modifications made to the stock codebase, and we ask that any serious area-builder make the attempt to learn about some of them before diving on in. As of the present time areas in Merc 2.x or Envy 1.0 format should run on DD fairly smoothly with only very minor editing, but we support many other tags, flags and features besides the generic ones, so below for the download of the prospective builder we have:

The in-house building tool for DD is:


The Scribe documentation

The scribe perl script *

(*If you wish to run the script you will need perl. Windows users, click here.)

Other recommended resources and tools:

The area.txt file -- a fairly exhaustive description of a DD4 area file. Read it through at least once, then use it as a reference.

The DD merc.h file. A lot of nitty-gritty detail relevant to area-building here.

A useful "virtual graph paper tool" for mapping out areas.

Up-to-date text file descripting the current state of the DD4 MOBProg scripting language.
