Has anyone ever figured out how the sun/moon/planet work in illy? The key problems are caused by the fact that illyriad seems to be based on a flat world.

One of the problems is the nature of climate in illyriad; if the world is flat then why are there seasons and why do the north and south of it have arctic conditions whilst the equator is deserts/jungle?

Another problem is the moon. There is clearly a moon as we have lunar cycles which alter how research and magic are produced however there are also no tides which you would expect given there is a lunar cycle. Also, if the world is flat then is the moon also flat?

Finally, if the world is flat, how deep is it? There are volcanoes so clearly there is some depth for magma chambers and a crust to be present. Does this mean that there are 6 sides to the planet of illy? What's on these other sides?

 "They" are trying to keep us down by saying it's a flat world. It's a conspiracy I tell you! Centrum isn't controlled by council of illyriad, it's the council of illuminati! They control all trade and now they are trying to control our minds as well, by saying Illyriad is flat!  Wacko

The sages in my towns still think for themselves. They calculated illyriad is in fact round. As round as a pancake Geek

Illy is actually cylindrical, and we are inside the cylinder. There are forum posts somewhere. Perhaps in the forum?

If its cylindrical, in which direction can you keep going?

.... and how does that answer Eowan's questions (which he stole from me in GC)?

Illyriad can't be a cylinder otherwise we could travel from the western realms to keshalia.

... and since the length of day does not change, Illy does not tilt. I conjecture that the sun follows an up-down variable oscillating motion - higher in summer and lower in winter.  I cannot tell whether it does this to the east or the west (It cannot be north or south - the ice, you see). The moon then orbits the sun above the plane. This resolves a lot of issues but the tides and gravity in general are a problem. We need Newton.
