Shilla Helpsite


This help site is for players of the online game, Shilla. Shilla is an old text-based RPG that has its roots in the 90's and ultimately died in 2008. The game was brought back from the dead once in 2010. Since 2019, Shilla is currently up and running again under new ownership and leadership. They have tried to recreate the game from where it was at in 2008, while adding their own changes here and there in hopes of making Shilla a more enjoyable game. Whether you are a new player or a returning veteran, the hope is that this helpsite can provide all the information you need to play the game.

As it is a wiki page, any content can be updated in real time to reflect changes. All you need to do is join the site on the left side, and you can start making pages and/or update existing ones.


News from the Contributors

I think that we are all at a point now in our lives where myself, AA and obviously Becca isn't here anymore, where Shilla(by extension the Wiki) isn't the priority that it once was to us, and I think also Shilla either is something that the people who played, got their nostalgia fulfillment in and aren't coming back, or isn't attracting newer players enough.

It started as a from scratch project almost 4 years ago this summer, and I'd like to say I'm proud of all the progress we made both in the game itself, and the wiki in adapting to the changes made. A lot of people came together to make it happen.

This isn't the 'game is going away' post, but if you are reading this, and wonder why you may be the only person online and the chat isn't moving, it's cause we all had our fun. Please enjoy our work though and stay as long as you like.

Thanks to everyone,

2/22/23 Saw that BP had made an update and thought I would follow suit.

BnB, thanks for everything you did for the site and the laughs and laughs and laughs. Hopefully someday I'll see ya again. Unfortunately, my Shilla career is finished. I haven't found a way to play the game that doesn't aggravate an old Navy injury. It's true I am busy with other things, but eventually I'll get back to doing maps and such.

Congrats to one of my oldest friends in finally getting to be an Admin. You look good in blue, buddy!

Happy hunting to all those who still play the game and keep the memories alive by doing so.

10/24/2022 BNB/Becca Going through all the mage sub guild quests to update them here. After that may work on fighters stuff but not sure yet.

About us!

Bp/Kyle I played in 2001-2008 under the name Bizarro-Phoenix aka Bp. I enjoyed gathering information and this is how this site came into existence. I helped with the recreation of this version to some extent, but I do not play on a daily basis. I have a full time job, full time college, a wife and 4 animals so I don't have the time to play like I used to. This helpsite has stayed alive longer than any version of Shilla has, and as long as it is free to me, I will continue to do so.
AA/Jeff I started playing around 2003 until the Big Crash in early Sept 2008. Bp and I had already been working on this wiki for over a year when that occurred. When Mediathrall started working Redemption we started a wiki for that, archiving this one as a memorial of sorts, never thinking it would be used again. I had moved on to other games at that point, Parallel Kingdoms until it died in 2016, and am currently helping in the closed beta test of it's remake, Parallel Origins. Looking forward to picking up where I left off with Shilla: Fall of the Warlock!
BNB/Becca I started playing Shilla back in the early 2000s whenever it was called the Dark Traveler. For a long time i had no clue there were remakes there to fill that missing place that Shilla had left. I did a random google search one day and was ecstatic to see there was the current version to play. Now i spend much of my free time playing on various characters. Always remember its not waterboarding if you use Diesel…Becca

Note: I would appreciate any changes to pages to include the description of what we are changing. It helps me and others identify what exactly happened in case we need to double check, or just to catch our attention on anything new. It's not mandatory of course, but I just like to see what people are doing.
