The Next Generation of MMORPG

Quests generated just for your character, a fully destructible environment, closed economy, finite resources, and survival elements, means Elyria is experienced differently for every player! Each time you log in there is something new to do. No daily grind! Local, regional, and national conflicts are continuously unfolding, giving birth to repeated opportunities for you to change the course of history.

Enter Chronicles of Elyria as a member of a player or NPC-ran family, then work your way up from a humble adventurer to a landed vassal, develop your dynasty, and work your way to King. Not interested in running a kingdom? The fully skill-based system and lack of classes means you're rewarded with the ability to create the exact character you want to.

Full of dramatic opportunities, Chronicles of Elyria pulls the best from sandbox and themepark MMOs to create a new type of game - an event-driven story we call a Multiplayer Evolving Online World or MEOW.

Join a robust World complete with Dynamic NPCs

Chronicles of Elyria, where the actions players take have a permanent and lasting impact on their environment: player characters can aim to gain control over and monopolize a valuable commodity, they can blockade or siege neighboring settlements to force alliances or concessions, as they can progressively construct individual buildings or even entire civilizations through our innovative new settlement system.

And, with robust A.I. behaviors, the NPCs and Offline Player Characters in the world react to the reputations and actions of the players, remembering past interactions and responding in kind.

With no new resources entering the game after launch, players must find and gather resources and craft goods and services for one another, and you can bet it will be competitive! It will be up to players to set fair market value, protect their investments, research new paths in technology and pay taxes to their governments to run the country. And it will be up to the champions of the realms to protect their borders, to hunt down threats, or to conquer other lands.
