Darky's Modding Ventures — Nature's Call
Before The Hive Workshop was what it is today, there was a major Warcraft III modding website known as wc3sear.ch, created by a user named Darky. When Darky was "absorbed" by "real-life" and World of Warcraft, the website, leaderless, nearly fell, and it was discovered that it was over its quota.
It was then that Ralle appeared and offered to merge the old Hive Workshop with wc3sear.ch, and so it was.
Darky's legacy lives on not only through the visible remains (in the form of resources or standards) of wc3sear.ch in the Hive, but through his undertakings in Warcraft III. "Nature's Call — The Spiderqueen" was popular because it was the first user-made campaign ever to have voice acts interpret the script. "The Return of the Dragons" beat a new quality record by introducing phenomenal custom spells and a capturing storyline. While outdated by today's standards, Darky's projects revolutionized the modding scene when they were released.
As of patch 1.26, however, "Return of the Dragons" is broken, and so are Darky's other products, most likely.
