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.

[Gameplay] Chronosych and Paradigm Shifts
Sep 17, 2014 - 9:30 AM - by Charybdis
Serale, Aelyrians!

After discussions with the Game and Management Teams and the Working Groups, we have developed a new and (hopefully) simplified manner to delineate the passage of time in-game that you may have noticed with our recent season change announcement. Thus we wanted to take a moment to explain these changes to you and to succinctly define what they mean for you, our players, contributors, and participants.
Chronosynch: The equivalent of "turning a page" on a calendar, these will be posted as announcements at the top of each forum on the site to state which season and era post-fractum the game world is in currently. They will no longer be associated with particular events or game-wide effects. In the future, there will also be more in-game time released per portion of real-life, meaning that the game world will age, mature, and progress at a faster rate than real life with players allowed more in-game

[Gameplay] Skill Section Updates In Progress
Sep 16, 2014 - 11:42 AM - by Nimh
As some have probably already noticed, a quick visit to our skills sections in the Lore/Compendium section of our website (Arcana, Combat, Trades) has revealed that “There are no posts in this category.” That is not a glitch! The articles haven’t “mysteriously” moved away somewhere!

It is however a sign of things to come! Over the next couple of weeks myself and some members of the Working Group will be transitioning over some of the materials that we have been working on over the last few months. While this will not be our final set-up for displaying our lore materials we have decided that the sooner we can get out some of the stuff we’ve been working on, the better for everyone.

Please be patient while we work on moving materials over. We need to make sure they all... [Read More]

[Gameplay] New Character Death Guide
Aug 12, 2014 - 12:18 PM - by Nimh
Good afternoon, Aelyrians!

The Working Group has been hard at work putting together new stuff for the rest of you and while most of it will not be visible until much of its been put together, we do have one item to roll out for you in the interim!

A Guide to Death in Aelyria

Please note that this is now our official stance on ALL character deaths going forward. Death does not happen regularly in the game but it does occur and much of the time there's a lot of confusion and irregularity when it comes to just what we do with a dead character. Hopefully the above will give a clear vision of what is expected both in terms of the dead character and also how we move forward from it.

Important points:
  • Once a character is declared deceased you must cease posting with this character both in old threads and new threads--meaning threads that

[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.
