New Kid on the Block

Copied from the official site:

The most dynamic and immersive MMO to date, Chronicles of Elyria is the first MMORPG where your character ages and dies, encouraging you to think beyond your character to their role in a larger story.

Fearless in its design, it embraces a character's ability to impact other characters. A closed economy, finite resources, non-repeatable quests, and a fully destructible environment means the world is experienced differently for every character. Each time you log in there is something for you to participate in. Local, regional, and national conflicts are continuously unfolding, giving birth to repeated opportunities for you to change the course of history.

Enter the world as a member of a player-run 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.

Will you follow a path of virtue... or something darker?

The developers, Soulbound Studios, have been hard at work, not only developing key parts of the game, but also interacting really well with the community, keeping everyone informed and answering questions. They've put a lot of their own money into starting up this 'dream game' and have already built up a large following of fans who want to see the game come to life.

The fans chance to do their bit will come soon. With more funding needed, a kickstarter campaign will soon be launched to allow the fledgling MMO to progress to the next level of development.

I'm really excited for Chronicles of Elyria, it's like a breath of fresh air in a stagnant MMO market. If it sounds like your sort of game, please join our community at chroniclesofelyria.com and maybe we'll meet ingame some time. My friend code, should you wish to use it, is DE2024.
