I'm worried about global warming caused by the methane from millions of cows making sea levels rise and flooding coastal waters...

Well... given that illyriad is fictional, I thought astrological was better.

OK. Lets monitor whether the ice sheets are diminishing and whether there is any increase in extreme weather events. Monthly reports will suffice KillerPoodle.

I investigated this matter thoroughly as Geographer on the player council.  I believe that Illyriad is a cylinder with an axis that is tilted relative to the sun.  the map that we see covers only a tiny portion of the surface of this cylinder horizontally.  It is very fat and squat. That is why the entire map is in one time zone and also why there are seasons.

Sorry Rill, that's an incomplete answer. How can there be seasons but a constant 12hr  day length? A fuller exposition with less hand waving is required!

"Day" and "night" are conventions observed by people, not geographic realities.  The designation of "day" and "night" in Illyriad has nothing to do with whether or not it is dark outside.  That is why we do not have daylight savings time.

If day and night have no meaning then why do things like the elven spirit bow have effects which work during the day?
