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] Self-Moderation Abolished
Aug 26, 2015 - 9:55 AM - by Nimh
Serale there, Aelyrians!

What was snuck into the last release regarding moderation was meant to be incorporated into the announcement but forgotten! While most people already know that we've been "discouraging" self-moderation and instead encouraging people to find peer-moderators to tell their stories, it was never really made an official rule.

Well, that time has come for the official ruling: self-moderation is no longer allowed in the world of Aelyria.

Instead, we allow what are called Expositions, described in our A Players' Guide to Moderation in the following manner: "This involves the player writing both their character’s actions as well as the environment’s in a single-author narrative. These are the least common threads and can only... [Read More]

[Gameplay] Updated Championship Guide Released
Aug 11, 2015 - 7:41 AM - by Nimh
The new Guide to Championship has been released!

Some changes and updates have been made to the article so please feel free to read and post questions here! Most notably, first and second brands have been flipped: First brands will now be activated brands that allow a PC to go out and DO while the second brand is now an aura brand (brands do not necessarily have to follow this pattern, as a note). Starting at the third brand, PCs can now dole out brands (neg and pos) of their own!

[Site] Worldforge Reopens
Aug 07, 2015 - 9:18 AM - by Nimh
It's been a while but the Worldforge has officially reopened! Players and contributors alike are welcome to begin the process of populating the world with lore and locations, as they so desire.

For those of you who are accustomed to our old Worldforge and Realmcrafting processes, you will find that we are doing it differently this time around! Worldforge and Realmcrafting have been combined, with this incarnation designed to handle both additions to to the Wiki and to the In-Game province forums found in Telath.

What does this mean?

Essentially it means that if you want to add a new Wiki article, make major Wiki edits or post a new location (exceptions: player character run locations) in the game forums, then you need to go through the Worldforge forum for approval. Please see... [Read More]

[Site] Forum Restructure Part II: IC Forum Shuffle
Jul 28, 2015 - 5:16 AM - by Jacob
Hi folks!

Well, it's finally happened: the IC forum shuffle has occurred! All IC threads going forward should be started and posted to under the Telath section of the site (it's in the same place as the IC forums have always been, so you shouldn't have to hunt around for it!).

As has been mentioned elsewhere, the new layout has posts made inside province-wide forums rather than split across Aelyria's numerous cities. This should make it easier to manually navigate to individual IC posts as well as provide more opportunities for folks to bump into one another with open threads. In addition, the new provincial forums have headers to assist players in finding information on our wiki about the regions they may be posting in, as well as a thumbnail view of the province map for quick reference. These headers, like all others on the site, can be toggled off individually and will stay off if you find them... [Read More]
