    Kickstarter ends in 20hrs and the game is well above its goal. Look forward to playing this in the future.

    Nice! It's like Elderscrolls and Neverwinter had a baby :)

    Hopefully they make some progress with the game - the combat looked terrible. (yes I know it's early pre alpha, but if you show it - its out there, good or bad)

    It's been a while since we've had a big MMO really nail action pvp combat.

    Been watching this for a while. Kickstarted it, so hopefully they live up to their hype!

    huh, the aging and dying of characters with them impacting other characters could be interesting. Unless its just a 5% buff to something..then that's a little lackluster.

    Since LotD has no plans to play CoE. UDL asked that I let you guys know your welcome to join them as a guest for CoE, if you need a guild to play with.

    Some good info, though I think its to early to be completely accurate.

    There is no ocean travel at the start of the game, you need to research ocean faring vessels before you're allowed to go into the sea. Falling overboard is perma death in the open ocean. However there are islands and there in more then one continent. Everyone will start on the same continent, the others will be unmapped.

    Land selection is going to be sooner than we thought.

    This is sounding awesome, kind of fell of my radar... I tried SoTA a bit odd, I thought UO was a big PvP game, but SoTA is different & the map sys is new for me...

    Surname Reservation begins in March 1!
    By Kaizen
    Last year, we hinted that surname reservation would be on the way very shortly. We had to do additional work to ensure account merging went smoothly, but now that we've completed those tasks, it's time to start the march towards surname reservation!

    Starting on March 1, we'll start to roll out the surname reservation feature to users based on influence order. Not sure how much influence you have? Log in to your Chronicles of Elyria profile to find out!

    This is your opportunity to reserve a unique surname in Chronicles of Elyria! To participate in surname reservation, you need a minimum pledge package of Bloodline or above, or a Surname & Coat of Arms item from our online store.

    What's Surname Reservation?
    Reserve a surname that becomes a part of the game's history on your server. Build a dynasty with a custom surname that will last centuries in the game! When your character's soul moves on to the next body, your surname will live on over the generations of which Chronicles of Elyria will unfold.

    Are There Restrictions to the Surname I Choose?
    We're building an immersive world in Chronicles of Elyria. To achieve that goal, we need to set a few parameters in place to able to maintain that immersion. So that means you won't be seeing any B0aty McB0atface's running around New Haven. Here's the list of restrictions:

    • Cannot contain numerals
    • Cannot have any leading or trailing space before or after the surname if there isn't a second word
    • Cannot contain any symbols other than one apostrophe and/or one hyphen (example: Ba-twoon'ip)
    • Can have at most one apostrophe and one hyphen
    • There can be at most one space, max of two words (example: von Baschturen, Red Beard)
    • May contain Extended Latin character set (a-z plus: ç, ñ, ß, µ, å, æ, â, à, á, ä, ê, ë, è, é, î, ì, í, ï, ø, ô, ò, ó, ö, û, ù, ú, ü, ÿ)
    • May contain at most two capital letters per word, one of which must be the first letter of the word (example: McDonald, Van Nuren, van Nuren)
    • May not include any of the names or words in Soulbound Studios' surname exclusion list (profanity, copyrighted names, Caspian, etc.)
    • If your surname does not meet the above requirements, it will be considered invalid, and you'll have to choose another surname.
    And if you need some inspiration, we're giving everyone the ability to play around with our Elyrian random-name generator! Random surnames are created using the language rules we create for each language. Use the random-name generator to see what sort of surnames would be associated with the tribes of Elyria!

    How Will It Work?
    • You'll need to log into your Chronicles of Elyria account before you can start the surname reservation process.
    • You'll need to own either a Bloodline or above package, OR a Surname and Coat of Arms item to reserve your surname.
    • We'll announce the web address for surname reservation when it goes live. Once we've published that page, there will be an "availability" button you can click, and you'll find out if the surname of your choosing is: available, unavailable, or invalid. If your surname is unavailable or invalid, you will be notified and you'll have to enter another surname.
    • Once you choose an available surname, you'll click on submit and the name will enter the approval process. You will be notified via private message regarding if your surname was approved or rejected. If your surname was approved, congratulations! If your surname was denied, you will have to start the process over again.
    Soulbound Studios reserves the right to approve or reject any submitted surname. All surnames will go through an approval process and surnames may be rejected that are inappropriate to the game world, even if they do not violate the above criteria.

    If you are interested in running a town as a Mayor. There is a position open for one.
    Just an FYI if you were interested in playing with UDL . They did move to a west server. Kingdom of Blackheart. Drakeolm is there Duchy.
