Welcome to Illarion!


he world is in turmoil. The Second Coming of the Elder Gods has shaken the realms to their core. Refugees flock to the bastions of the land Illarion that were spared from the hardships of the past. Six gems of power were given to the Lords of these bastions for safekeeping; but jealousy, betrayal and envy are the ever present scourges in the constant struggle for power. Noble Cadomyr, wealthy Galmair or wise Runewick - whose side will you join?

Illarion is a free open source MMORPG that focuses on true role playing. All of the characters that you will encounter during your time here are living, breathing inhabitants of this mysterious world. Each character has their own past, goals, flaws, strengths and personality. Experience glorious adventures as a noble knight or live the life of a hardworking craftsman, acquisitive merchant, or charismatic priest of the gods.

Illarion combines a high fantasy setting with a persistent game world. The decisions that you make while playing Illarion will actually impact and shape the world around you. Your actions will determine the events that will one day fill the pages of Illarion's history books. You won't be able to resist the magic of this world.

New Installation Application


Again there is another major change happening for Illarion. We are taking the step to move away from the JAR-file that you have to download and double click to start using a proper installation.

On the download page you will find the required links for your operating systems to download the setup files. These setup files will install the launcher of Illarion along with a fitting version of Java on your computer. Also a proper integration into the start menu will be provided.

Users of Windows 8 and 8.1 will see the SmartScreen scanner of Microsoft that informs you that the application you downloaded could be dangerous. This is not the case. However, the scanner reacts because the file is downloaded very rarely. After clicking on "more information" you will be able to continue the installation. Hopefully this message will disappear once a sufficient numbers of people have downloaded it.

Along with the new setup files there is a update feature. The launcher will now inform you of updates that are available and will guide you through the installation.

Due to some changes in the directory structure, its likely that your settings will reset, but that will happen only once. The new directory for your user files is located in your home directory in the directory .illarion.

Have fun!

New client version: and new server version:


A new update for the server and the client was just published.

The setting that controls if the distance of the mouse from the character automatically activates running now works again correctly. Also walking though doors that were just opened works again properly. The skill window has also been fixed and now shows new skills as they are learnt.

The bug that caused NPCs, monsters and other players to be shown while they were on other levels in dungeons and buildings is now also fixed.

Have fun playing.
