DragonRealms is a medieval fantasy game set in the world of Elanthia. It was originally intended for an online service planned by the Ziff-Davis company. After AOL and other services went to flat fees instead of an hourly rate, DragonRealms was offered on the web on its own site  and through the Microsoft Gaming Zone. The design basis for the game was created by Simutronics founder David Whatley , in response to a production request for a new game to open at the same time as the then-pending Ziff-Davis online service. The two games, DragonRealms and GemStone , are said to take place in the same game universe of Elanthia, but in different eras, though it has not always been clear which game world pre-dated the other. Both games are considered flagship products of Simutronics, and have been some of the longest-running and most popular online text games in existence.

Perfectly adapted to blend into a desert environment, the animal's coloration is a mottled patchwork of sand and tan. With powerful claws for digging protective burrows, a barbed tail, and flexible plating that allows the creature to roll itself up tightly, the armadillo appears well built to defend itself. Webbing: An adult desert armadillo rears up and spews forth a blast of stringy white webbing at you!

The Dunes of Despair used to be inhabited by westanuryn and mihmen, but they have been replaced by adult and elder armadillos.
