La Cueva was founded in June of 2022 by the desire to pursue excellence in brewery, writing and trade. It has soon risen to the complexity of its plans and is currently under heavy development. The Resort Island is tailored to your heart's most wished desires, bathing in the salty and cold waters of Illyria and basking in the sun.
Although it is a new Island, its history and culture are rich and continue to grow rapidly.
The First Days
At first, Lez_ spent a few nights on the Island, scouting the terrain before coming up with a building plan for the Island.
It started from brewery carved into the mountain, continuing to growing into a full-blown entertainment complex. La Cueva has grown its farming capabilities, its housing areas (with in-mountain apartments) and its brewing necessaries in farming.
The Island quickly found itself in need of a trading port and so La Cueva Shopping District was created. In search of rare recipes, the libraries of all other cities were scouted and soon Illyria's Master Brewer learned and felt the need to also teach others and so Illyria Library was founded, on the Island of La Cueva, with access from the main dock.
Culture and Research
Illyria Library is the place to go if you are in search of culture and information. With books from all categories, you will sure find something to read in its dedicated places. Its wide variety of lectures contains both instructional books as well as novels, poems, songs, fiction, fanfics and many many more for you to discover in a visit.
The library now has over 10 books, from which 5 original works and the rest copies of other great works of UV.
All writers and librarians are welcomed on our Island and so they benefit from a wide variety of discounts on all goods and services. If you want your work show in the library, please contact Lez_.
Illyria's economy is one of the strongest and is built on trade and entertainment services. The island hosts The Commercial Bank of Illyria and benefits greatly from its services, the local economy having a strong and constant influx of people coming and trading here. Being the capital of brewing and having a constant influx on tourists boosts the local businesses, making it the best place to experience luxury and culture.
The gambling sector also bring is a good flow of diamonds, all the taxes from Feeling Lucky Inc. being fully redirected towards research and development in both brewing and overall culture and writing.
A copy of the Tax Code can be found in Illyria Library.
La Cueva Brewery is the Island's crown jewel and also its biggest export. With locally grown ingredients, its brews are of the finest quality. The brewery produces a variety of over 45 brews and has both normal brews, custom brews and even its own secret recipes!
You can buy any brew by either visiting La Cueva Liquor Emporium in the Shopping District, in one of Illyria's or partner's bars or by placing a custom order at Lez_. La Cueva also offers custom-labeled brews of any kind. Feel free to message Lez_ and discuss all and any necessary details.

The Hanging Gardens of Illyria
The gardens were built as part of the UV Building Competition, on the mountains of La Cueva. They are filled with riddles and hidden Easter eggs as well as stunning views and full of hanging plants.
It is a central part of the town now and it contains a landing strip, as it is only accessible by flight, a campsite, an Art Gallery with a cute little pond, a stunning flower garden, a marvelous library, a sky bar and The Golden Book.

La Cueva Anthem
Come, jolly god Bacchus, and open thy store,
Let the big-belly'd grapes of their burden be eased,
Let thy liberality freely flow o'er,
For 'tis by thy bounty that we are appeased:
It is sack that we lack,
It is sack that we crave ;
It is sack that we fight for, and sack we will have !
Let pining Heraclitus drink of his tear,
And snivelling Tymon lie sick in his cell;
And let the coarse bumpkin preach law in his beer ;
But 'tis wine makes our fame and our glory to well:
It is wine makes divine,
All our wits, and renowns,
The peasant with sceptres, the shepherd with crowns.
