Chronicles of Elyria is starting to ramp up and Pre-Alpha along with map voting and, domain/land selection are only a few months away. With that in mind I'm compiling a list of all the latest information, updates, and videos that have been happening the last couple of months to keep folks updated. I'm here as a representative of the Kingdom of Kairos on the NA-E server, though I know a couple of folks like Cheatle, Lifedragn, and Alexander Damocles from back in the PFO Days.
Surname reservation is live, and everyone should be able to now reserve their surname provided they bought a pledge package to do so. You can register your custom surname by visiting https://chroniclesofelyria.com/surname-reservation
Character Creation in depth look
Recently we got a rather long video that showed off character creation on a variety of the tribes, you can check that video out here.
Map voting is supposed to happen some time in May/June. We will be voting on what map we want for the server, how the biomes/land are arranged. For an idea of what the starting continent that we are voting on could look like, there is this example map.
Kingdoms have specific tribes in them, that is the one thing that won't change due to map voting. The following is a list of tribes in each of the kingdoms.
And for information about what each tribe's qualities are, you can browse the following guide to dig deeper into them.
There isn't an exact date for domain selection, but it will be happening not too long after map voting. This is where Kings/Dukes/Counts/Mayors will be picking where they want to settle. You don't necessarily have to pick when domain selection starts, but it is advisable to do so as some of the "best" land might be taken if you wait too long to choose.
We just got a very long and in depth update on how crafting is going to work in CoE. It's far too large to just quote the good bits, but it certainly seeks to make crafting challenging, involved, and rewarding for those that enjoy that aspect of play.
If you have anything on Layway it needs to be paid off by the end of April.
That's a bit of what has recently gone on in the world of CoE, if there is something you're wanting to know about the game/current state of development/state of the community/Kingdom of Kairos. Then feel free to post here, or PM me and I'll answer what I can. I'll also try to keep this OP up to date as we get new information about the game.
