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] Wealth Audit
Nov 18, 2014 - 5:57 PM - by Maddyn

As many know, we've changed the way that income is handled in the Game. The Guide to Wealth and Poverty can be found in the Wiki, and for those interested, we also have the Primer to Aelyrian Currency.

Wealth in Aelyria is not a static affair. With the Guidelines having been in effect since June, many Players were given options such as to take a higher Wealth ranking that wasn't sustainable at their Profession - contingent on it being balanced over time (some succeeded, some failed), and others have had IC repercussions kick in over the last 4-5 months.

(We'd like to possibly do this twice a year simply to accommodate for major events and to give people time. That said, a GM/D... [Read More]

[Gameplay] Matchmaker Update!
Nov 05, 2014 - 8:13 PM - by Maddyn
Looking for someone to moderate your thread? We have the Matchmaker forum to help expedite the process!

Highly recommended that if you're going to put in a request, that you're also picking something up as a Peer Moderator.

To help speed up getting your plots approved as a Peer Moderator, we've also just now created a Help Desk styled forum found at the top of Matchmaker just Here that you can use to submit Modplans.

All Game Masters and Directors have access to this forum, so you no longer need to submit via PM or the Help Desk - and no risk of your Peer Moderator Desk Ticket being accidentally forgotten or neglected if it's sent to someone that has RL. (Bonus points? If you lose your moderator to RL, it's easier for us to provide the mod plan to the next mod! Yay for plot consistency).

[Gameplay] Aelyrian Currency Changes!
Nov 05, 2014 - 9:51 AM - by Nimh
Hi there!

While we realize that we have made changes to the way we log our character's money (which is to say...we don't!), we can still acknowledge that money is still very much a part of their lives, however peripherally it might now be. As such, and because we still the way people view money is very broken in this game, the Working Group has produced a Primer to Aelyrian Currency to help put things into perspective for people!

A Primer to Aelyrian Currency

Forthcoming over the next couple of weeks will be a more comprehensive collection of the Aelyrian economy (as far as I'm willing to delve for a game anyway) and some other goodies that are being worked on.

[Gameplay] Bestiary Rolled Out in Wiki
Nov 02, 2014 - 9:22 AM - by Nimh
The Bestiary has now been rolled out into wiki! You will notice that the Monstrology section of Lore has now been emptied out. Please locate all your monster and beast needs in wiki. An excellent lander to work off of may be found here:

A Primer to Beasts

Beasts will also be incorporated into location wiki articles which should also help people figure out what sort of monsters lurk in the terrain where your stories are taking place.

Also, for a quick wiki navigation tip, you can click on categories located at the bottom of each article to quickly pop over to a lander containing similar articles. All bestiary articles, for instance, carry the "Bestiary" category. (Although I am noticing that even though some articles are tagged Bestiary, they are not all showing up in the Bestiary category until I click on them. Working on that now!)

[Community] Kevin's Award 2014 Goes To...
Oct 26, 2014 - 7:53 PM - by Jacob
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, called Kevin's Award for short. The prize, besides the recognition, is a one year Companionship on the site.

As is always the case, the Management Team received many strong candidates for consideration. After reviewing the slate of your nominees and discussing who has, in the previous year, best exemplified the qualities wanted in the winner of this award, we were able to reach a consensus on a member to award it to.

For 2014, the Kevin Ostapenko Memorial Scholarship for Roleplaying Excellence is awarded to Straylor Leonard.
