References to the game

The game is referenced in Benoît Demeutre's 2008 novella Customer Service, originally published in French as Service clientèle.

TV series

A television series based on DAoC was in development by Collision Entertainment, but apparently never emerged. Their website describes the series with...
Based on the online game Dark Age of Camelot created by Abandon's Mythic Entertainment, the world of Camelot is filled with as much youthful passion, love, and sex, as it is with hatred, betrayal, war and the supernatural. Arthur, just 17, becomes King, while Guinivere, Lancelot and the other familiar characters, all in their late-teens/early-twenties love and battle in the newly formed Camelot. Think "90210" set in a land where danger lurks around every corner. In the Court of Camelot there is as much danger inside the castle as there is on the outside and alliances shift as easily as the sands on the beach above which Camelot stands.
