Welcome to Aelyria
Aelyria is the original play by post creative experience on the Internet. Thousands of writers, artists, musicians, and gamers play by posting stories over our message forums and bulletin boards, immersing themselves in our unique fantasy world. Founded in 1989, Aelyria features collaborative storytelling where players assume the roles of heroes and villains as they explore, quest, and adventure in an epic faerie tale of magic, romance, mystery, and intrigue. Whether adventuring together or fighting against each other, players form friendships, forge alliances, and compete with foes for power and glory across a vast landscape dotted by ruined castles and thriving cities, plagued by monsters and brigands, shaped by spellcraft and the gods, and plunged into political intrigue.

[World] Mid-Season Paradigm Shift: The Nightmare Rises
Jul 21, 2014 - 3:25 PM - by Charybdis
Please review: Aelyria - Announcements in Forum :

There is a new plot-point arising midseason that involves all characters in Aelyria, but specifically Twisted and Dreamwalking PCs.

The timestamp on this event is fluid; it takes place in Summer Era XXI, wherever fits best in your character's narrative.

Any threads currently ongoing in which PCs are using their Dreamwalking skills may continue as such without interruption. Any new threads posted after this announcement may not use their Dreamwalking skills, outside of lucid dreaming.

Twisted have had no changes to their skills.

This plot will continue to be in effect until resolved in some way by players in-character.

[Site] Revamp Updates: Site Navigation and Wiki Freeze
Jun 26, 2014 - 9:19 PM - by Jacob
Serale, Aelyrians!

As you may have noticed, there are a couple technical changes recently implemented on the site. I'm here to update you on them.

Site Navigation

This evening I finally went ahead and implemented our new navbar-driven main site navigation that has been sitting in design limbo since 2011. The new navigation is meant to be quick, responsive, and plainly labeled so that users can navigate between the major sections of the site with a minimum of fuss.

Also included in this update was a re-jigging of the forum's own navbar, which provides useful links to Lore, as well as a special Staff Links category available to Staff accounts that provides quick links to relevant tools based on a Staff member's account rank.

Wiki Freeze

The official Aelyria Wiki is now frozen for edits and new contributions. The Working Group, having... [Read More]

[Houses] House Maeve Welcomes Ascension of Duchess of Centripax
Jun 25, 2014 - 4:02 AM - by Roscarnis de Lylles
Following the events of this thread

The Imperial Herald had just received an official proclamation of support for Her Most Eminent Grace, the Lady Duchess Tiyribi Andares, and her recent ascension to one of the highest honor a peer could attain. At the same time, House Maeve offers congratulations to the Baron of Vortex bestowed by Duke Wessex de Evile IV upon the reunification of the Empire under the reign of Rhysatra I.

It was believed that the Duchess Andares, together with her husband, the Baron of Vortex, had attempted a daring rescue of the late Duke Davon's heir when they had learned of an imminent attack on Maeve by the Baron's fell brethren from Herrozal.

An illustrious member of House Maeve was quoted stating this:

"Lord Socrates de... [Read More]

[Gameplay] New Starting Packages Rollout!
Jun 19, 2014 - 9:00 AM - by Nimh
Along with the new Wealth & Poverty system in Aelyria, we have new Starting Packages to go along with them!

Please review them here: Starting Packages.

The most important part to note about these starting packages is that they no longer require GM approval with a SOF to go with it prior to you starting your new character. You may simply adjust the starting package according to your needs and start playing!

Characters with less than 10 posts may take advantage of the changes above.

Other notable changes:
  • Characters may start with a house
  • And a skill (level 1)
  • And a job (starter)
  • And a weapon (of your choice!)

There will be no more special starting packages made. If you do not want to start with a thing, you do not have to. You are welcome to start out at the super poor level if you want to, but no... [Read More]

[Gameplay] New Wealth & Poverty Guidelines
Jun 19, 2014 - 8:56 AM - by Nimh
In the history of the game, much of what we've demanded of our players (and moderators) has been a heavy emphasis on monitoring the money that flows in and out of a character's pocket. We ask people to keep tight records of what they have purchased, sold and earned so that we can decide whether or not the character can afford what they are claiming they can afford. As a result, both characters and moderators have had numerous headaches regarding 1. what to extend as a wage to a character 2. what to charge a character 3. a reasonable hardline of money worth across the empire 4. getting grandiose with numbers and coming out with wages and earnings that are simply unrealistic, even of a fantasy game.

As a result, we have discussed an alternate solution to tracking monetary matters that will wipe away the need to 1. obsessively track even the smallest incomes and expenses 2. remove questionably large sums of money from even popping up 3. eliminate the need to mention a number... [Read More]
