Illyri is a city (that's completely made up, btw) located in Massachusetts. It's a large city that was founded by none other than the first vampire. It's a lively and popular place not only for humans, but for supernaturals as well. The city is located right on a large bay, where ships both large and small dock from time to time.
At the moment, the forum takes place in the year 2013. Each in character month is equal to two out of character weeks. This, of course, means that every IC year is equal to six months. That's pretty much all you need to know in terms of time. We'll display the month and season in the side table and will update it whenever it changes.
