If your favorite part of the Lord of the Rings films was the exposition-heavy introduction, then Chronicles of Elyria has a treat for you this week. Soulbound Studio put out a new video that details the complex back history of one of the servers, complete with moving illustrations.
“Chronicles of Elyria is a deep MMORPG made up of player run countries where the developers involve the community to define the unique lore for their server,” the team said. “Each of the monarchies in this cinematic are present on the Luna (NA-East) server and are created and run by players!”
Following a couple of minutes of lore, the studio pushes its raffle of the last unpurchased monarchy. Aspiring community leaders pop in to make the case why you should support them with your money. It doesn’t feel weird at all!
