Player-run websites and events are an important contribution to the Illyriad community. There is a wealth of knowledge and creativity within our player base and it is always wonderful to see it come to life and engage the community!
Of course, we must not forget the The Travelers’ Tale section on the forum where players share their prose, poetry, history and artwork.
