Dark Desires has been in the Conan world for a long time. Starting with Age of Conan back in 2008, we have built a reputation for mature, involving and free flowing RP. The guild itself is based deeply in lore, particularly around Derketo, and Stygian Culture. Although of course members of any race/religion are welcome.
We are now, using the experience gained in AoC and knowledge of Conan lore gradually moving to Conan Exiles.
The server runs on a powerful dedicated server on a physical machine, which means we avoid the lag spikes, disconnects and other annoyances due to virtual servers found on other hosted servers.
We are also the author of the Dark Desires Mod with all kinds of custom items made for both clans and players. Having our own Mod is a huge advantage to the players and allows us to offer some unique services not available anywhere else. Such as offering custom banners with your own logo.
We also acknowledge that the starting experience is quite brutal and unfriendly to RP, so we have provided safe houses, roads and the like to various hubs around the desert map(ofc it’s up to you if you want to use them)
We welcome all players, who wish to immerse themselves in the lore of Conan, and who also won’t mind a Derketo Centric clan running the server

Red Tape stuff
Since the server is RP centric, we have built a few structures to allow the new player to at least survive until they get themselves settled , and aim to make the new player experience smoother if not easier. Of course you can make it as hard as you like and there is no requirement to make use of this
That said there are a few basic rules we ask players to adhere to.
1: Be nice, no excessive swearing, trolling or nastiness in the game or in the chat. This will grant you an automatic timeout or even ban. Basically, keep religion, politics and spoilers out of chat.
2: This is an RP (Role Playing) server, we expect everyone to respect this and also be comfortable with the concept of ERP. Saying that ERP will and should be kept private and not broadcast to everyone else on the server or nearby
3: Part of the RP mentality, we expect all players to have an RP name for their characters or clan. If you do not have an RP name, expect to be asked to choose a new name or kicked. Please be sensible and don’t use names like Conan Or Akivasha as these are already taken in lore.
4: Global chat is OOC (out of character), guild chat is up to your guild and the local chat is IC. (in character). If you wish to ERP use /whisper or find a room
5: Currently this server is in PvE mode, from time to time it maybe set to PvP to support consensual events. The community will be notified about this on our discord server. Same goes for building destruction and the purge. By default they are disabled, but we will consider requests to enable them temporarily to forward server wide RP.
6: You must be at least 18 years old to play on this server. If you are found not to be 18, we will ban you. You also must RP a character of 18 years old or more.
The server will never be wiped. Unless Funcom updates the game and announces that the only way to run a server is with a new data base, we will never wipe the server. From time to time we will clean using data base scripts buildings and characters that are old and not being used. We will also not use the decay system in its current form. We will give plenty of notice on our discord when we are going to do this.
Solo players and clans can build as big as they want with in common sense. A building must never block access to features of the game or map. If a gate or wall is built, the access door must be a public door. Before building something very big or in an area that could be considered a starter area or access to something, discuss it with the admins and we will tell you if you can proceed. No pre-size area will be imposed. Also, it is regarded as “bad form” to build wheels right next to NPC spawns, so please don’t If the server performance suffers, then we may need to revisit these rules and/or introduce the decay mechanic.
Basically, Enjoy yourselves and don’t be a douche
