Welcome!

We welcome you to the Kingdom of Nirath; an open community of friends and of countless and prosperous opportunities, under a pledged king on the EU server. Please find below all information and lore associated with the ‘Kingdom of Fire’.


A Brief Overview

The Kingdom of Nirath, ruled by King Dragor

The Kingdom of Nirath, sometimes referred to as the ‘Kingdom of Fire’ is a rapidly growing kingdom in the world of Elyria, on the EU server. It is lead by King Dragor, a Kickstarter-pledged King and a long-time member of the community. Nirath can therefore boast a number of benefits uniquely available to its citizens (that will be highlighted later in this post).

A recent post on the official Nirath forums encapsulates King Dragor’s wishes and plans regarding the direction of such a promising kingdom:

“Nirath is not a guild, nor is it an organization. It is more than that. It is a gathering of like minded players and home to all of us, in preparation for whenever the world of Elyria opens its gates. I hope that this acts as a platform for players to meet, connect and organize their plans for Elyria, and at the same time grow the kingdom so that it may become an ideal location for their gaming experience for years to come. I believe this desire is shared with many members of our community. If Chronicles of Elyria delivers it’s promised potential, we could see tens of thousands of players on the same servers, and thousands of players in the kingdom of Nirath. I do believe the community will be larger than ever, especially when COE launches. Many will join us before then, and many more after. So, I hope that we can establish the best place we can for all of those that are here today, and all of those that will come in the future.” – Dragor

It is these pillars upon which the entirety of the kingdom will be built. Nirath is a kingdom welcoming all who wish to settle, it stresses the importance of individual progression and at the same time is devoted to developing a non-micromanaging infrastructure that can support all citizens.

Structure

Although it must be stressed that King Dragor maintains his wishes to avoid an excess of micromanagement, a kingdom structure is still in place to provide a stable backbone to society, and to aid any Nirathi where needed. Nirath in this sense can be considered a support system; a catalyst for any individual’s projects and an enabler of success in trade, production, and prosperity.

The structural ordering of an entire kingdom can be delicate. A common sense approach is most likely to be adopted by Nirath, as a result. In this, a straight-forward hierarchical layering that fully encompasses the values and intent of Soulbound Studios’ own mechanical structure is a must. An imitation of feudal society in this sense (King Dragor need only organise his dukes, the dukes their counts, etc.) affords a great deal of flexibility in play style for peasant and nobility alike, and means that while the kingdom governed by the king holistically, every individual maintains their freedom to evolve their game experience.

Assisting the decision-making of Dragor, the Royal Court is comprised of a small selection of trusted personalities from across Nirath. The span of their knowledge in different areas, both geographic and academic, means that they collectively formulate experienced and educated solutions to factors that may prove detrimental to the realm as a whole. The structure of the kingdom will evolve in time, as more information is revealed about Chronicles of Elyria.

Also it is to be noted that Nirath relies heavily on the theme of religion, which is an important part of the game-play, lore and story of the world of COE, as it was emphasized on by the dev team often. Thus a whole different religious structure and order will be set up within the kingdom, but further understanding of the game systems is needed. As the game is in early development, it is hard to forge solid plans and declare them public, so we tread carefully for now.

In the absence of King Dragor, King Regent Rhaegys Audran will take charge of the kingdom. Consistency is key, and the continued presence of a ruler with the ideals of Nirath is important.

Guilds & organisations

Guilds are an incredibly fundamental piece of the kingdom puzzle, and are the cornerstones of every functioning society. Nirath is keen to house as many guilds as possible, and has already attracted a number of guilds focused on a range of professions and talents:

Further expansion of the guild list has already been encouraged in a number of regions within the kingdom, where respective lords have implemented monetary support programmes, and other benefits aimed to support the budding society. Multiple guilds and organizations are still in the construction phase, and are not included yet.

Also for the player that enjoys small communities, and is intimidated by the sheer size of the kingdom and it’s multiple organizations, fear not. Small projects (Families/group of friends) or even small guilds are also encouraged in Nirath. Just because we are a large kingdom does not mean you have to get involved in high traffic projects. It is enough that you register yourself, and if needed communicate your desires/needs to the leadership.

A Pledged King

A kingdom under the rule of a Kickstarter-backing king can provide unique opportunities for its inhabitants. It is important these are outlined, as they will have a direct impact on everyone considering settling within the Kingdom of Nirath.

From the start of exposition, Nirathii are able to grow their businesses, settle their homes, organise their regions, and ultimately begin functioning as a kingdom with a direction it sees fit. There’ll be no lag time in which other matters are settled, before Nirath benefits you as an individual, directly. In following the standards of freedom to play your way, and ultimately of ensuring enjoyment, this immediate start requires no sacrifice or labour before you can enjoy this promising game the way you want to enjoy it.

A pledged king is a dedicated one. That pledge is an incentive to rule justly, and to ensure the longevity of the entire kingdom. It in turn creates a fairer community, to make sure everyone is entirely happy, and means a dedication to defending the values and rights of all Nirathii, as these are valued in turn by Dragor.

Along with the king pledge, a great number of pledges at every level of the CoE tiered system echoes the ethos of flexibility, and of instant benefits from launch. This proves to be advantageous to all Nirathii.

The Community

At the heart of the kingdom of Nirath’s strength is its wonderful community. Nirath supports an open border policy for all players. This means players settle in Nirath easily, if they want to. There’ll be no official registration to join the community; you’re free to enter whenever you see fit, unless aiming for important positions, and wish to progress within the government. Then it is advised that you coordinate with the leadership.

Nirathii are proud of their togetherness, and demonstrate it in a number of ways! It’s a long time until launch, and the community is dedicated to filling that time with fun activities open to everyone. Game nights are frequent, both in smaller settlement-wide communities as well as those attended by the entire kingdom.

The community also boasts a brilliant interactive experience through accessibility to the independent Nirath forums found here. The Nirath forum enables direct contact to be made between administrators of the kingdom and any citizen. While currently not a necessity, this will be an important platform for communication across the kingdom as the player count increases. It also serves as a hub for all lore and information regarding Nirath and its nobility, as well as an archive of Dragor’s ideas and a series of King Journals posted to the public.

International communtiy

Nirath prides itself on its multicultural society and can accommodate speakers of many languages and citizens of a great number of nations with different ethnic backgrounds. Nirath has already established two internal community projects harboring both Spanish and German speakers, each working as a group to develop their counties, and potential future duchies. Complete support will be given for such groups, and internal ambassadors that can represent them in our international council, so they can have a fully enjoyable experience with their fellow countrymen. Additional groups similar to these are encouraged and fully welcomed into the Kingdom of Nirath.

The royal council itself contains a plethora of nationalities, so it is accommodating of any and all wishing to become a part of our community.

Here you can find our non English communities:

Game-play Experience

Your gaming experience is of the utmost importance to the leadership of Nirath. The kingdom itself was a vision of enhancement in this respect. Because of this, the leadership members have been hand-picked, and have extensive experience in a range of gaming and play styles, to be able to apply their knowledge to scenarios concerning PVP, PVE, peaceful crafting, merchantry, diplomacy, and perhaps the most controversial of all, role-play (Which is encouraged!). By building a smart collection of communities, and by dividing the members into regions that best suit their play style, Nirath can aid individuals in finding like-minded players and leaders that enjoy and assist in similar activities, while maintaining a strong connection between all groups and avoiding creating rifts in the community.
