Chronicles of Elyria Wiki

Introduction[ | ]

The process of Domain & Settlement Selection (a.k.a. 'DSS') is the second major community decision making process that enables the community to determine the fate of their gameplay world(s) by selecting the domains and settlements their main player character will rule. This follows the processes of Map Voting and Server Selection.

The process of Domain Selection is announced to start on 29 April 2019.[1][2]

Process[ | ]

Domain and settlement selection will be ordered by title and total influence.[3]

The process will consist of 5 distinct and consecutive stages. During the first four stages the nobility and aristocracy of Elyria will select their domains. Kings and queens will select their kingdoms, dukes will select their duchies, counts will select their counties and mayors (plus barons) will select their settlements. These stages all allow players who selected a server and consequently connected their account to a specific server, to select their domains and settlements on the basis of an total influence ranking. During the fifth and last stage, all players who did not lock in their account on a server can select their domains and/or settlements, but that stage does not grant any priority based on the total influence players have.

Note that the geography of, and presence and distribution of biomes in each server world is unique and of major influence on this selection process.

Maps of Elyria[ | ]

For Domain Selection, the maps of Elyria, generated for the four servers, are rendered in more detail. This allows for the nobles and aristocrats to get a better view on the geography and location and size of settlements in the domains they intend to claim.

The map graphics are antipated to be similar to this example published on 28 March 2019[4]:

Explanation on these maps was provided on 27 March 2019 in a Twitch Q&A session, where also a less detailed version of the example included here was published [5]
, and on 29 march 2019 in a forum 'shiny' post [6].
