Aelyria: Game Walkthrough

Posted March 23, 2011 at 03:38 PM by Straylor Leonard

When I started playing almost ten years ago, I found the game, registered, and then promptly looked for a walkthrough

For better or for worst, Aelyria is not that kind of game. There's no 'main plot' and 'side quests'. Everything you do has the potential to be epic, tedious, or both. It's an ever-changing metagame that inevitably merges IC with OOC, RL with IG. That's the beauty of Aelyria, and also it's biggest flaw.

Humans drive the game engine, the NPCs, the...

The Magic Number and Word

Eight years ago, I would have scoffed at the idea of forgoing threads. Saying "No" to threads? Preposterous!

But I guess getting older (and indirectly wiser? ) led me to realize that I have limits. Even when it comes to something I love, like writing.

Maybe I'm just burned out; or maybe it's because of RL; even a combination of everything above. But when I returned to moderating, I gave myself a few limits:
  1. Ten threads max at any given time. No

Mod-Post-to-English-Translator

Posted March 30, 2014 at 05:32 PM by Straylor Leonard

I've been reading along your stories since I disappeared more than a year ago. I laughed, and was shocked, and rooted for heroes and villains along the way.

But I noticed that mods use particular phrases when they're about to throw something at you. Here's a guide to the most popular ones I remember to make sure you don't die next time

1. "Your PC feels like s/he's being followed."
Translation: Your PC is actually being followed. Turn around, they're...

25th Anniversary Skills Changes

Posted May 31, 2014 at 02:51 PM by Jacob

If you haven't already, read the News post on some rule changes for Skills here. I'll wait.

All good? Good.

I'm going to turn off the fluffy grandiloquent voice and cut to the chase here by announcing that there are a lot more things in the pipeline for the Skills System than what that post revealed. Prepare to be bombarded:

5/3/3 and 4/4/3/3/3? Gone. Replaced by a simple new rule: you may have one Level 5 skill and all other skills may progress...

Combat Threads: Tips & Tricks (Player Side)

Posted August 22, 2014 at 05:21 AM by Jacob

As we're edging up on the Final Battle scenarios, most of which involve direct combat, I figured this is a good time for me to cover some tips and tricks to understand in combat threads specifically, although they can also be applicable to other moderated situations. This set is designed for players to keep in mind and are mostly valid in anything I'm handling and may not generally apply with other moderators, although they shouldn't hurt to keep in mind there either.

Tip #1: Communicate
