The Illyriad Effect: Illyriad Guides and Strategies
Welcome to my humble site.
This site is my thoughts and ponderances regarding Illyriad, a most impressive Real Time Strategy game of Diplomacy, Crafting and Warfare. To be found at http://www.illyriad.co.uk, if you wandered in here randomly.
I am going to start by assuming you have some basic knowledge on the game already, having completed the in-game Tutorial, and possibly have perused a noobie guide or two. If you have not enlightened yourself with one of the community made guides yet, I recommend the following:

This is from the perspective of someone who’s been playing three-months. It’s geared toward new players, as I am learning and want to write fresh what I have figured out. There’s a lot of depth to Illyriad, and while you can still play and have fun without a lot of thinking, you will gain much with some simple planning.
So without further delay…
