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.

[Community] Kevin's Award 2015
Oct 26, 2015 - 8:33 PM - by Mimesis
Serale, Aelyrians!

On this day (October 26th) we commemorate Kevin Ostapenko, the player behind Hannas Darkblade and Katzchar Telvic as well as a long-time contributor to Aelyria. In memory of his contributions, roleplaying excellence, and community advocacy, our community nominates and the Management Team selects one member to receive the Kevin Ostapenko Memorial Scholarship for Roleplaying Excellence, or Kevin's Award for short. The prize, besides the recognition, is a one year Companionship on the site.

After a review of the nominees and a discussion of who has, in the previous year, best exemplified all the qualities Kevin was known and beloved for, the Management Team has decided to award the Kevin Ostapenko Memorial Scholarship for Roleplaying Excellence Award 2015 to Sliucha Sindosa.

[Site] Badge System Reoperational
Oct 10, 2015 - 11:20 PM - by Indefinite
Hey guys!

So finally, after 2-3 years without, we finally have badges again! You can see them listed near the bottom of the windows on the left, underneath number of posts, reputation, etc. You can also peruse them at the public profile, under the "My Awards" tab at the very right.

That being said, we're now working through a backlog several years old. A recent slew of badges have gone out to people, but it's really hard to try and remember everybody who deserves one. Don't forget that you can (and should!) recommend people who you think deserve a badge! I am tentatively saying that you should do this through Help Desk, buuuut I might be wrong.

In case you've forgotten, here's a page on the badge program: Aelyria - Badges Program

Other categories of badges include people who have won an Aelyria Award, or have reached L4/5 in arms, magic, or... [Read More]

[Tech] Aelyria undergoing maintenance on 9/29
Sep 28, 2015 - 3:28 PM - by Kaelon
Serale, Aelyrians,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 29th, Aelyria.com will be placed into locked read-only mode in order to conduct major and overdue systems maintenance. Aelyria will be offline for much of the day, starting at 10:00 am Central Time (-6 GMT) and concluding on or about 5:00 pm Central Time (-6 GMT). During this time, the Cloud Infrastructure which hosts Aelyria will be shifting its server platform onto PHP 5.6, the current supported version, and our LAMP-stack will be upgraded. Concurrently, we will be updating the Ioannes Engine (3rd Generation) to support this new stack of server software.

What this means for you:
  • Aelyria will be offline most of tomorrow. I will be live-blogging transition work tomorrow using Twitter, and inviting the community to participate. A message on where to read our latest status will appear on the site when it is undergoing this upgrade.
  • When Aelyria returns tomorrow evening,
