Thelus is a IRC based forum roleplaying game hosted on the [[http://www.raven-mythic.com/phpbb3/index.php Raven Mythic boards]], a community originally set up around the [[Main/MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMO]] ''VideoGame/EverQuestII''. It is an original fantasy world created by a team of roleplayers after ''[[VideoGame/EverQuestII EQ2]]'' was brought down for two weeks due to the April 2011 Sony server hack.
