Illarion, in its new legal form - The student project becomes a registered society

At the Autumn Real Life meeting in Bamberg, on the 23rd of October 2004, the Illarion registered society was joined. The society serves the common good, and will aim to keep online role playing games free.

The student project of three people; Alatar, Baldur and Bror, in 1997 at the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich became the world of Illarion, which has been perpetuated by a multitude of gifted and benevolent staff in the past four years. Gradually over this period, the contributors to the project have added and improved a large proportion of the programming, scripting, graphics and sound featured in the project today. Each addition to the project can be accredited to different contributors, who hold the copyrights for them, and should they leave and withdraw those rights, then Illarion would no longer be playable. This cannot remain so. Thus, all rights will be signed over to the registered society, which in turn will safeguard the project's source code and programming, and finally safeguard Illarion in the future.

The further development of Illarion, and the technical and organisational requirements for this, make it necessary for us to procure our own server capacity, the cost of which should not fall solely upon those who already work so hard on expanding and maintaining Illarion. The income from society membership, and contributions, would support the Illarion maintenance costs, and legally safeguard the project. Illarion will remain free for all players, each contribution to the project will be considered as honorary participation, and the project will avoid commercialisation.

As chairman of the committee of the Illarion registered society, the society founders have unanimously elected Alatar. Other positions include Aragon Bel Galwan as treasurer and Falk vom Wald as secretary. The members of the committee are elected to their position for three years. Sun Long and Galdriel will act as treasury auditors.

The society will be known, along side the members of staff who support the project through yearly donations. More information will be posted in the near future. Further information and the charter of the society will be posted in a special board on the forum, available for all to see. Future members will be presented there in small announcements also.

Additionally, at the foundation meeting, it was decided to keep the players informed of the development of the project in the future using a new email newsletter.
