Understanding DR-Scripts

DR-Scripts, or what most people refer to as Lich, is an Open Source software suite that uses the Lich Engine to automate Dragonrealms gameplay. It is important to note that DR-Scripts is NOT a converted software suite from Gemstone, but rather it is a completely new design built exclusively for the game Dragonrealms. It originated from the minds of two professional software developers and has since increased to around 20, a lot of whom are also professional software developers. The DR-Scripts suite is hosted on Github which allows easy development processes as well as allowing end-users to request new features or report bugs.


If you get this error you need to upgrade to ruby 2.0.0-p648 (https://dl.bintray.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/rubyinstaller-2.0.0-p648.exe)

Issuing Script Commands

Just as SF or Genie uses an invoking command, period and comma respectively, Lich and therfore DR-Scripts does as well. To invoke a Lich script you use the semicolon. An example would be ;gird which would then run the gird.lic script and would gird yourself with the gear listed in the script. This script, of course, would have to be written by you before you could run it, but you get the idea. DR-Scripts uses the ;e command to execute some scripts. The below guide uses said formula.


Do NOT trust scripts unless told to do so!

  1. ;repos download dependency.lic
    • 'dependency.lic' is the the script that will download and keep up-to-date all of the rest of our scripts
    • Do NOT download any other scripts from ;repository unless someone tells you to, some of them conflict with our scripts.
  2. ;trust dependency
    • This lets the trusted script make files on your hard drive and download stuff from the internet - make sure you trust us before running later commands!
  3. ;dependency install
    • This downloads all of our scripts (and backs up any you had locally with the same name)
    • Did this step not work? Scroll up to the ATTENTION section at the top of this page for help.
    • This made a new folder called profiles inside the script directory and copied in some default character profiles
    • Profiles holds a collection of YAML files.
    • See Introduction-to-Character-Settings for more information on what YAML files are.
  4. DR-Scripts is now set up and has downloaded all of our scripts, you do not need to use ;repos to access any of our scripts, and you won't need to ;trust any other scripts.
  5. We have some sample config files in the Lich/scripts/profiles/ directory, the same location as base.yaml. Make sure to rename the file to match your character if you'd like to use one:
    • Name-setup.yaml; You MUST capitalize the first name, followed by -setup, and it must be YAML and not YML!
    • Barbarian: SampleBarbarian-setup.yaml
    • Bard: SampleBard-setup.yaml
    • Cleric: SampleCleric-setup.yaml
    • Empath: Selanas-setup.yaml
    • Moon Mage: SampleMoonMage-setup.yaml
    • Necromancer: Sorjen-setup.yaml
    • Paladin: SamplePaladin-setup.yaml
    • Ranger: SampleRanger-setup.yaml
    • Thief: SampleThief-setup.yaml
    • Trader: Cidemon-setup.yaml
    • Warrior Mage: SampleWarriorMage-setup.yaml
  6. You'll probably want to add some scripts you download to run automatically when you log in
    • ;e autostart('script-name') Automatically starts the script for ALL of your characters.
    • ;e autostart('script-name', false) Automatically starts the script for ONLY that character.
    • ;e echo(list_autostarts) Shows all the scripts for your character which will automatically start.
    • ;e stop_autostart('script-name') Removes the autostarting script for the character.

To start, enter the following:

    • ;e use_lich_fork
    • ;e autostart(['drinfomon', 'skill-recorder', 'spellmonitor', 'roomnumbers', 'lnet']) Autostart several scripts at once.
    • And then restart DR-Scripts by typing ;k dependency and ;dependency
