Support Membership for Illarion e.V. Society

Illarion is a game which is provided to you for no money. Nevertheless we (as a registered society) have to pay anyway for server, traffic, domains and so on.

The simplest way to cover our expenses in a predictable way is your Illarion society support membership for only 10 Euro per year. Because both sides should have a benefit, we thought about advantages for those members.

As fundamental idea we don't want to offer any ingame advantages, because this would be just a premium game account for people who are able to pay.

The following benefits are available for support members on request right now:

  • An own forwarding email address to your specified account email address (e.g.
  • Increase of the maximum character number of your account from 5 to 7
  • An own guild forum at (with group leader and moderator rights)

This list could be changed anytime (we already have more ideas), but there is no redress in law to get these benefits.

To become a member, just fill out the form and send it to us:

Illarion news

With today’s news, the Illarion staff wants to keep you up to date what is going on in Illarion and address two serious issues.

1. New Gamemasters
The Illarion staff welcomes its newest members, Garou and Zak, as Gamemasters. Both of them have sold their souls and will sacrifice their spare time to provide quests and support players in any way they can. Both are able to communicate in English and German. This results in the following roster of Illarion-GMs:

  • Arien Edhel
  • Estralis Seborian
  • Garou
  • Loralyn
  • Naerwyn
  • Zak

2. Latest developments
Even though the 3D-Client was (sadly) just an April Fool’s joke, our developers are realizing other useful features to be presented soon. This includes some changes on the fighting system, new dungeons and monster spawns, but most important the long awaited newbie island and a brand new homepage. Stay tuned!

3. Newbie Treatment
Since it will take some time until Noobia, the Tutorial Island, is finished, the Illarion staff will host a workshop on how to treat new players and how to deal with them. The first workshop of this kind will take place on Tuesday, 04/15 at 18:30 GMT (20:30 CEST) in German language. An English workshop will follow up, date and time are to be announced. It is an offer for veteran players to increase their abilities in handling newbie encounters, not an offer for newbies themselves. The workshop will take place ingame, just be ingame if you want to participate.

4. Out-of-character
There is poisonous venom around: OOC in Illarion. We noticed a severe increase in usage of OOC in the game that does not contribute to the game atmosphere nor to the fun people have playing this game. OOC must not be used unless necessary (e.g. to explain a newbie how to use the interface). Discussions or even bitching about ingame aspects or conflicts are greatly undesired. In case you have a serious problem with somebody’s roleplay and you cannot play along, contact a gamemaster. The OOC-rule will be enforced much more strictly from this day on. We are not addressing positive remarks like "((AFK)), ((When can we meet again?)), ((Hey, I like your new character!)) but things like "((That was unfair! The GMs will ban you!)), ((Your roleplay sucks and you just focus on your own gain!)), ((Get lost, noob, you disturb our magnificent roleplay!))".

5. Low roleplaying standard
The Illarion staff didn’t fail to notice that there are players in need of assistance to improve their roleplay. This includes the form of expression, racial roleplay and, in special, separating OOC from IC. We don’t want to remind you on the rules that state that proper language, roleplay and strict separation between OOC and IC is mandatory but offer our support. For this purpose, so called roleplaying workshops will be hosted. We will invite players with room for improvement to these workshops that address typical problems. Do not consider these invitations as punishments or accusation but as chance and offer to improve your individual roleplay. Furthermore, we’d like to ask veteran players to support the Illarion staff in hosting these workshops.

Client has been upgraded to 3D mode

Finally we can proudly announce, that Illarion has now full 3D support and will from now on be able to switch to 1st person perspective in your client. In many overnight sessions martin converted all graphics to 3D meshes and built many anew, where the original mesh was missing. To enable this feature, all you have to do is pressing the buttons "3", "D" and "F11" at the same time. Unfortunately beta testers reported, that the rarely used graphics adapter 571RPA produced by Loof is not able to handle this mode, although providing 3D acceleration. Enjoy!
