Chronicles of Elyria to start taking name reservations next month
Thinking about reserving a character name in Chronicles of Elyria? It’s going to cost you, but if you’re willing to pony up the dough, you should be sitting pretty some time next month.
Soulbound Studios announced this week that it will start taking family surname reservations in January. The studio explained that this is more important than your typical MMO: “When you reserve a surname, that surname becomes a part of the game’s history. Every character is born to a family in Chronicles of Elyria, and it’s possible new characters will be born into your dynasty and will inherit your surname! Once you reserve a surname, no other player can claim it; it belongs to you, and you alone!”
There are some hoops to be jumped through in order to lock in your surname, however. You’ll need to either buy a minimum $135 pledge package by itself or unlock the a la carte store by buying a minimum $45 pledge package and then picking up the surname option for another $25 (so, $70 total). Additionally, surnames will be reserved according to player influence, so those with more in their account get dibs over the rest of the crowd.
Yeah, you’re probably not going to get “Stark” and “Baggins.” Sorry to break it to you.
