2. Irmas 51 - News about the roleplayed lives of Illarion.

The world of Illarion keeps turning. Smaller and larger events are filled with role played lives by our players.

What happened the last weeks in game? See some examples:

  • Ice Storm - A Natural ghost hailed Yewdale. A follow up cat fight drew an implication in between two realms.
  • Mount Letma – The portals of the undead daemons disappeared for a short time. An expedition found a way into the inner of the mountain. The adventurer discovered a mighty portal in the heart of the volcano. Further expeditions followed, magic and cursed items were found.
  • Sunken Temple Found – A sunken temple of Mother Ushara with a beautiful garden was discovered.
  • Sword Flirt- Sweet words instead of hard blows determined the regular weapon training in Cadomyr.
  • Talking Bush – More or less obscure telling came from a talking bush in the Kantabi desert. It spoke in rhymes about the fall of a realm.
  • Mages Learning – Some magic classes turned out to endless discussion sessions. It is nearly impossible to find two mages with the same opinion about anything.
  • Archers Tournament – In a thrilling competition a new champion won the prize against the winner of all former tournaments.
  • Magic Rabbit – A carrot field that was to be plundered made it possible to catch a run away magic rabbit that laid colored eggs.
