Another minor update

Our developers worked hard to provide some improvements for the game:


From now on, we have keys to open doors and gates and to lock them. The keys are given to the characters in question currently. Please note that these items do exist now, thus, they can be stolen, traded, lost...


Mining was improved again. To keep the balance, some things were made easier, some were made harder:

There are just 6 mines left where one can find ressources, all of them are underneath the surface.

Every mine has some sort of "topic" (Iron ore, copper, coal,...).

Rocks crumble if hit too often by a pickaxe, they recover slowly.

The time needed to mine was increased, it depends on the skill.
Higher rates of success.

New NPCs

With immediate effect there are new traders on our island. Some of the old traders have also changed a little. Have fun with trading!

Minor update

The mining of ore, coal and gems was reworked and improved. Now there are well defined mines where you can fetch these resources. Therefore you should not wonder that you can't mine in the middle of Troll's Bane any longer.

Woodchoppers of the world, unite!

We introduced a new lumberjacking system today. Chopping down a tree and gaining wood from it is now done in two steps:

First, the tree has to be cut down, afterwards you have to chop wood from the now cut down tree. The amount of wood you gain will depend on your ability to swing your axe.

You can also influence the directin in which a cut down tree will fall. You'll surely find out how soon, and keep in mind: A tree falling on your head will cause bad headache!

However, gaining wood from the cut down stem works just like cutting down trees before.

Banner Contest

I like to invite you to our big banner contest. We are planning to promote Illarion with the next coming client update. Therefore we need a banner (468 x 60 pixels) about Illarion. Try to create one, be creative as never before. The format (jpg, png, gif, ...) is up to you. Feel free to create a static or an animated banner. Please send your banners to, but please note that by sending you banner to this email address all copyrights at the banner goes to the Illarion society. Besides the honour for the winners we are thinking about raising the character limit for them. Let you surprise.

Now you have to go to work :-)

Furthermore - for those who need more space for their creativity - I could need a 1024x768 picture about Illarion, a sort of background/promotion/desktop image - not just a client screenshot. Please send this one to
Same rules as above.
