Dark and Light puts players in an immersive fantasy world that is filled with magic, monsters, and mystery. There are a total of 25 magical areas, each with their own unique ecosystems, creatures, weather patterns, and magic.
In Dark and Light, players can use magic to erect portals that will transport themselves instantly across the map. They can use dark forces to summon the undead to gain an advantage in battle. Players who have acquired enough elemental magic from a certain creature can even transform directly into that creature.
Players can craft physical weapons, but they can also imbue them with incredible added power through magic, transforming them into multipurpose tools and weapons.
In Dark and Light, animals can evolve, especially with the aid of magic, and develop new capabilities over time. Players can also capture elemental magic from different creatures and obtain mounts through the resurrection pool.
