The birth of Revaliir began in the stars like so many other worlds. Titans known as Celestials ruled the skies and filled mortal souls with terror and amazement. The Celestials Parvpora and Canelux became the moons and reigned over the skies for all eternity. Now the Celestials are lost to the flow of time and only myths remain. However, your story has yet to begin and where you might end up is entirely up to your imagination. Dare to roam the lands of Revaliir and discover the truth of yourself. What does fate have in store for you? Well, my friend, that is entirely up to you. You can’t conclude a story that you haven’t even started.
Come explore the lands. From the all too perfect streets of Egjora to the mysterious roads of Abed. Danger lurks in every corner if one isn’t too careful. Get lost in the Feeorin Forest but beware the call of the fey. Hear the banshee screams of Koschei Forest from the dark town of Kurayo. Fly airships high into the skies and create your own destiny. One might even get lucky enough to end up next to a deity in the tavern. The possibilities, the stories, the myths… They are endless and entirely up to you.
Revaliir’s community is one of the most enthusiastic, heartwarming, and accepting places on the face of the net. We strive to make sure that not only do you find a home but also that you are treated like family. The goal of Revaliir is to make sure that harassment is not tolerated, that everyone feels accepted and that everyone enjoys their time here. We, the community, are the heart of the site. From the Administration to the users we keep our lines of communication open. We strive to make sure our users know that they are wanted, their opinions matter, and that overall they are loved.
The only adventure never thought of is the one you haven’t written yet. So why not join us and write? Revaliir is a High Fantasy Medieval site where the sky is the limit of your imagination and sometimes, even then, we push past it.

Mirror Mirror on the wall,
Tell me what is down the hall,
Is it a demon big and scary?
Or a monster so very hairy?,
‘You are mine.’ It says to me,
And before I scream or flee,
Familiar hands pull me in,
The mirror becomes my twin,
That thing leaves with my face,
I’m stuck screaming in this place.
After hearing this little nursery rhyme, you might be tempted to toss it aside. Yet you must know that within every story is a secret waiting to be told. The pretty little temple has returned, bringing all the friends and mirrors that anybody could ask for. Would you prefer a friend with multiple limbs? Or one that wanders endlessly? A friend of the dead or friend of the eldritch? We even have friends who can take your appearance. If only you would join us… just step inside the mirror and we’ll do the rest.
Scholars across Revaliir have discovered the source for the moons’ strange behavior is coming from an ancient temple. It is a ruined monastery where an ancient order used to reside before it was sealed away by powerful sorcerers. Now it has returned, bringing evil and monstrosities that haven’t been seen for hundreds of years. Adventurers and heroes have been sent towards the mysterious temple only to never return. If they do make it out, they behave strangely, as if they aren’t themselves. Horrific monsters wander these halls of mirrors and traps cover every room. Desperation spreads across the land of Revaliir as fear takes hold of the populace.
If nothing is done then the eclipse may be endless and the blood moon will appear every single night. But beware anyone who steps foot into the temple. You may find that there’s always an equal match for you here.
There’s a creepy new temple that’s making an eclipse and blood moon. Explore the temple and discover the mysteries behind it.

SOMETHING IS HAPPENING!
Both moons Canelux and Parvpora have moved in front of the sun, creating a double Solar Eclipse. This has gone on for several days and panic has broken out through the streets of Revaliir. Wizards, scholars, and anybody with half a brain is being sent out to discover the truth and hopefully put an end to all the chaos.

“I believe I do. No one else can ever claim to make me feel the way you do. Ever since we first met… It’s been hard to breathe around you. Like something fit just right. I struggled to realize the why until a few days ago… and Felix upset me enough that I’m ashamed it took me so long to tell you. I was afraid once I told you that you would leave me… And I would rather us silently have the illusion of something than to be rejected by you.” She held a sad look on her face before giving him a smile.
We found this post amazing due to the expression of the character's emotions and the symbolism within the words. The usage of being unable to breathe, something fitting right, and the admission of an ashamed feeling all bring power to the character's words and let us the reader understand more about what is going on inside her head. The symbolism with illusion matches up with the theme of the thread and it reflects the character's mindset. Overall this was an excellent quote!

“As soon as his wicked sister read the invitation out loud, Gabriel knew that this would lead to trouble. Deep trouble.
For one thing, that meant that she was going to drag him behind into this whole affair and he would have to… socialize with others. Many of which were likely crossed with him for one thing or another- namely sleeping with their sisters, daughters, etc. He was damn lucky that he belonged to a respectable house otherwise he would have been fair game. Gods only knew that he hoped that his time awhile would have been enough to settle those old wounds.
Another situation was actually right underneath his nose- Paulina. He could only fathom that she was about as thrilled with all this as he was. Dressing up wasn't her forte and getting her to wear heels was another matter entirely. And should she learn any more about his past transgressions, then that meant more trouble for him. Gabe would definitely make sure to keep any silverware and trays away from her during the party.”
We found this post to be incredible because of its personality and its build up. The reader may have never known about Gabriel before-hand but this magnificent introduction helps set up his personality as an ex or current troublemaker who is trying to avoid parties and getting in trouble with his lover Paulina. It’s a beautiful setup to his situation and creates tension for the upcoming party and makes the reader wonder what disasters are to befall this character.

The world had changed; it had changed and changed and changed again in the course of the years that numeric had stayed in hiding, travelling on the breath of whispers and constant winds of the changing sea. Too often, change has brought violence with the rise and fall of gods, destruction of civilizations and forests. Nymeria had taken to the wind, the smoke, the air to become a part of the world and to embrace the nothingness for a time. She had been born of air, fire and darkness, crafted by the gods and set loose upon the world- and using that innate power had given her the opportunity to become more and somehow less in the grand plan of the world.
But it was time to rejoin the living.
This post is incredible because it is a perfect introduction into Nymeria’s character and Revaliir. The language itself is beautiful but beyond that the quote also mentions the passage of time and the rise and fall of gods and civilizations. All of this really emphasizes the character’s loss of time while she had been gone. The overall quote helps create this feeling of a strange changing world that a person can get lost in, which really fits with Nymeria’s character.
