Dark Age of Camelot pays tribute to player’s terminally ill son

Players who’ve logged into Dark Age of Camelot since yesterday will have met a stylish new NPC in the Mularn, Cotswold, and Mag Mell, as Broadsword has added a tribute character to the game in its latest update.

A quest NPC named Renvek Larson honors a six-year-old boy by the same name who’s battling ganglioneuroblastoma, a rare brain tumor. “Renvek got his name from his father’s own Dark Age of Camelot character,” says Broadsword, “and we are proud to honor the request to put an NPC that suits his playful nature into the game.”

Renvek’s father explained his son’s story and thanked Broadsword on Facebook. Read that and then go hug your kids.

In other patch news, the Otherworlds content also received a difficulty adjustment pass, and Darkness Falls (oh man, remember Darkness Falls?!) will open for all realms for the upcoming event weekend.

Very nice of Broadsword to recognize Renvek’s battle. I wish him the best. 

Do I remember Darkness Falls? Absolutely–it’s burned into my brain. I could probably still navigate it with my eyes closed. Sad, I know.

As I’ve said before, DAoC was one of those games I moved on from, but never stopped liking. It’s gratifying to know that the dev team are such kind and classy folks.

Hope young Renvek wins his battle. This world could use more happy endings where the good guys win.
