Welcome to the Encyclopaedia Elysia!

This is the official wiki for Elysian Fields, an original and somewhat eclectic fantasy set in a massive, open universe you can explore and build on.

If you are thinking of joining our friendly community, please check out the Getting Started guide first.

Elysian Fields was founded in June 2006 and has been running (and evolving!) ever since.

We are a play-by-post forum-based game with a fun and friendly atmosphere for roleplayers of all ages and levels of experience. We operate on a skill system? that keeps characters balanced, but we value freedom and the ability to have fun in a flexible community.

Whether you are passionate about roleplaying, like a bit of worldbuilding, or just want to enjoy a fun and easy-going experience, you are welcome to join us!



Your characters. Your creations. Your game.



About the Elysian Fields

Elysian Fields is set mainly on Elysia?, one of four known realms created by the gods?. With some technology based on crystals, Elysia nevertheless relies heavily on beasts of burden and family-run, eco-friendly cottage industries. Towns are few and far between and the wilderness is rife with danger, but Xanth's Children have thrived here.

It is home, it is wild, and it is breath-taking—but mind your step.


Current Plot Featured Lore
In Erimis of 10,012 XA?, Elysians discovered Acantha? in a plot that released the Malaki and Mystriders as new playable races. We are currently exploring the aftermath of this discovery and the quake that shook Xanth's? worlds.

Xanth? created Elysia? in 6,300 XA? (1700 BC) as a haven for her Children when it became clear that humans and non-humans could not knowingly co-exist.

EF is built on the imaginations of not just its original creator but every member since. If you think there are gaps in the wiki, or if you have a cool idea you think would fit nicely in our world, feel free to add it! To that end, any member of EF can add and edit pages.

You will need to login using the member password, found in a box in the forums sidebar, to contribute to the wiki.

Please take a look at the following pages before attempting to submit an article. I also recommend playing around in our sandbox first.
