Tales of Illyria is an original medieval fantasy roleplay, inspired by Namco's Tales series. In the world of Drylla, the races have vied for survival and against the throes of war, political controversy, and the presence of monsters for thousands of years. What the populace is unaware of is the presence of a single group of chosen individuals, who call themselves the Rhakoth: the Voice of the Gods. As war plagues the Elven Realm on the heels of a revolutionary change in the Empire, the Rhakoth continue their duty to protect the world from the dangers that lay beyond. However, a betrayal within the ranks, by Uriel of Light's chosen voice has brought destruction upon the world, releasing the beings known only in legend as hellions: the daeva, creatures born from the world's mana itself that remain hell-bent on Drylla's destruction. With the presence of monsters increasing and the High Daeva's plans to destroy the races of Drylla, the world is on the brink of destruction -- but what other legends could there be in Drylla that could come true?

09/05/2016: Hey there members! We know it's been slow around here lately, but we're coming to you with some NEW UPDATES! We've had two new IC areas open up: Astyr, the Trade Port, which is a second Guilds port located in Deucalion, as well as the Illyrian Isles, a set of mysterious islands with inaccessible ruins that bear history about Drylla's past, during the time of the gods. We've also had a no-requirements Activity Check, and lastly -- there's a new skin with a completely revised layout and setup! (Well, not completely, but there's some definite changes -- for example, our avatar size has INCREASED from 200x400 to 250x450, which we will over time be updating on the old skins to reflect the change.) We hope you enjoy these, and we hope to see you around!

No New Posts Gharoth Forest
Aptly dubbed the "forest of circles" or "winding forest", Gharoth Forest's inner areas form very few clearings and can easily mix up even the best navigator in its depths. Cherin Pass exits near the edge, though it's possible to follow the mountain line to find the exit to the plains.

No New Posts Kaleliya, The Artisan City
The home of Sironia's art culture, Kaleliya is a city of entertainment. Populated by citizens of all social classes, the city boasts numerous theater halls, both indoor and outdoor, as well as art museums and phenomenal, breathtaking architecture. Kaleliya is also home to Drylla's Coliseum, located near Sironia's shore, with a large port for various docking. It is the only Empire territory that remains neutral grounds for Guild members to enter competitions. Combat outside the Coliseum, with exception to combat against monsters, is strictly forbidden. Failure to adhere to the guideline will result in immediate execution by the perpetrator.

No New Posts Silma, The Iron Port
Controlled by the ever-powerful Merchant's Guild, Port Silma compares strongly to Gallend, though its walls are far more fortified. Silma is popular as a place to find iron goods, though most are controlled and regulated by the Merchant's Guild.

A short tundra expanse that expands directly from the lower beach areas, the Silaris Tundra is a cold expanse of frozen wastes. No vegetation, save for the occasional pine tree, grows in this particular area.

No New Posts Silaris Mountains
Even more frozen than its tundra counterpart, the Silaris Mountains have a network of caves that is home to the non-traditional kindred. These caves, despite being within the rock of the mountains, are very well-furnished and warm, keeping the kindred safe from the cold winds and frozen temperatures outside.

No New Posts The Illyrian Isles
A set of islands somewhere off the southern coast of Teale, the Illyrian Isles are rumoured to be the oldest remains of ancient civilization in Drylla, dating back to the time when the Gods still roamed the earth. The Isles, however, are surrounded by fierce storms rumoured to be the result of unstable mana flow in the area, and as a result, landfall cannot be reached by traditional means, leaving them as a sort of 'unexplored gem'.

No New Posts Nyrte, the Frontier Ring
The Nytre is a grand, protective wall that circles the whole of Mekaim, dotted with watchtowers at certain points. It is manned by Guardians, who usually take up residence here. The long, snaking structure is built into the land, incorporating mountains and cliffs it passes by into its defense, and warded with enchantments to keep the island's existence from prying eyes.

No New Posts Phion, the Inner Circle
Beyond the walls is the true proper of Mekaim, a rustic plateau of carefully-tended forests and elegantly-crafted structures blending together seamlessly. The forests, alongside the mines, are an extremely valuable resource; however, the most important aspect is that this is where the majority of Gaeans reside.

No New Posts Niflheim, the Daeva Homeworld
Called the 'Dimension of Hell', Niflheim is the realm which the Daeva were banished to when the Dryllan Gods disappeared. Niflheim is sustained by a very small amount of mana that trickles through the Otherworldly Gate, the only known rift to the Daeva homeworld. As a result of the lack of mana, the Daeva have been put at almost a standstill, having had their lifespans cut short due to it.
