Early last month, Chronicles of Elyria kicked off the first of its live community events, The Searing Plague, in which players were able to take part in a sort of in-depth choose-your-own-adventure game via the game’s forums and Discord, where the results would determine the progression of the event’s narrative, which would in turn shape the Chronicles of Elyria game world itself when the game launches. Last Friday, the event drew to its thrilling conclusion, and yesterday the folks at Soulbound Studios posted a new update to reveal the results.
In the end, the players “successfully achieved 6 out of the 8 Cure Bar milestones,” earning themselves five unique Searing Plague in-game item rewards. All “pure” players who participated in the event (i.e., players who had a pledge package) and who performed at least 30 actions during the event will receive five in-game items upon the game’s launch, including a plague mask to ward against “foul miasma” and a new world technology, inoculation, which “will potentially grant players an immunity to a single disease” or, if it fails, give them the very disease they were trying to prevent. In addition, event participants will receive the “Plagueborn” title that can be applied to one of their characters when the game launches. You can read up on the full results of the Searing Plague event over at the game’s official site.
