Q. What is Chronicles of Elyria?[edit | edit source]
Chronicles of Elyria (CoE) is a next-generation MMORPG or MEOW (Multiplayer Evolving Online World) that aims to break the boundaries of the current MMO trope.
Q. What is an MMORPG?[edit | edit source]
MMORPG (usually shortened to MMO) is an acronym for Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. These are games played via the Internet and involving hundreds or thousands of players all playing on the same server or game world. Players can meet each other in-game, play together, and adventure with thousands of people from around the world.
While the last three letters of the acronym stand for "Role Playing Game", historically only a minority of MMORPG communities have engaged in the role-play acting associated with table-top games like Dungeons and Dragons. For the most part, "RPG" in "MMORPG" stands for a slough of common features such as character creation, progression of the player character's abilities as a primary focus, and traditional fantasy themes. Chronicles of Elyria's development in some ways conforms with and in some ways wholly contradicts these typical featuresets.
Q. Who are Soulbound Studios?[edit | edit source]
