I forgot I backed this kickstarter game about a year ago.

 

https://chroniclesofelyria.com/

 

It's a kingdom/feudal MMO with skill-based crafting, aging, quasi-permadeath, and a crazy community that is willing to spend 15 thousand dollars to be the rank of King in a fake world.

Anyway, they cranked up the prices but I got to keep my KS package with a cool title ("Count") so now I'm responsible for keeping a lot of plebeian PCs alive, gotta make a coat of arms, and come up with some cities, titles, laws n' such,etc.

I've been spending the last few days reading up on the various Duchies to join and figuring out which Discord server to dive into. It's pretty involved.

 

If any of you want to join as a vassal (or do your own thing, whatever), give it a shot. They reward people for recruiting players, apparently, but I don't care if you reference me or not; it'll just be cool to get people I know in a game that I apparently invested in.

 

It'll likely be out next year, but don't take my word for it (just look at Star Citizen, yikes). Normally I don't advocate backing "early access" games, but so far the community reminds me of the RP side of Dagorhir where everyone's trying to be an important person but really everyone's a scrub.

 

It's great. Check it out.

Chronicles of Elyria? That's too cool. My hometown is Elyria, Ohio (near Cleveland), I wonder if they made up the name independently or if one of the creators has been through Northeast Ohio. I am totally taking a screenshot of their name and logo to show to people back home.

 

The game ideas sound interesting. I don't play MMOs, but I look forward to hearing what gameplay is like.

I've been keeping loose tabs on this as it develops, but I didn't kickstart it. I'll likely get into it when it comes out, but I need to replace my PC first.

For what it's worth, I've acquired a significant title within the Kingdom, and there are ~200 people on Discord that I just praised Kingdoms of Novitas to, so maybe a few folks from there will pop in here to check out KoN.

Bump.

 

So far in the CoE group we picked up Tony and Camila Servello, Chris Tesorio, AJ DeLong, Sarah Merchant, and possibly Fred Clark as well.

 

Ping me on FB if you're interested! Your recruitment earns the County points toward land selection priority (Code: D3D0A9)

 

We have 1 or 2 Baron slots open (Mayor, Magistrate or Governor package). This means you'll be entitled your own settlement to govern within the County.

 

 

 

In addition, we have Council member positions as follows (available to anyone ranked "bloodline" or higher):

 

Knight Commander of the Armed Forces - (Chris) - In charge of outfitting, training, and leading soldiers (e.g. town guards, archers, watchposts) to protect the County from attackers and outside threats.

 

Justiciar of the Court - (Tony) - In charge of lawmaking, managing prisoners, enforcing laws internally (e.g. police force within the County) and is allowed access to a branch of troops not controlled by the Constable. Appointment of Judges is allowed as is access to the capital city's Courthouse for all matters judicial.

 

Seneschal of Records - (Open) - Will be keeping official records for Citizenship, ceremonial duties, burials, and overall human resource management and inventory. All filings for citizenship not handled directly by the Count are addressed by the Seneschal. Records include important structures and settlements as well as the acknowledgement of Guilds and Organizations within the County borders. This includes the planning and coordination of large building projects and city planning.

 

Marshal of Commerce - (Open) - Directly responsible for the transportation, storage, and inventory of physical goods. All diplomatic affairs around buying and selling of goods will be handled by the Marshal. In addition, the Marshal takes on responsibilities of the Master of the Horse, having control over horses, trison, wagons, as they fall under management of the transportation of goods.

 

Chancellor of the Exchequer - (Open) - Is effectively responsible for wealth and management of taxation within the region. They can work with the Justicar's forces directly or employ their own tax collector as needed. Will be working closely with the Marshall of Commerce to coordinate finances and set budget for trade and infrastructure.

For those on the fence or thinking about trying out a new sandbox Kingdom-based MMO (in its early stages), ping me.

 

We're approaching land selection soon so we'll be allocating towns and cities to the various players who are Mayor tier and above. Lot of new development happening in the County for those that want to participate! Trying to get as many friends and "known" players involved before all the random people flood the game.

 

Here's our new heraldry!
