About Drake County

County

Drake County can be found within the Rhynelands of the Kingdom of Vornair and is run by Count Vestan Drake and a team of invested leaders. Currently, we will be merging 6 county titles to form a single 6x county and a massive capitol city.

Come join one of the largest and most active homegrown communities in all of Elyria! Our centralized, coastal 6x county is a land of opportunity for menn and womenn of all tribes and professions. We will create a mature and relaxed environment where people of diverse backgrounds, interests, and play styles can work together to create the game experience they desire. Here you will find a home and friends to help you find your destiny. Together we fly!


Location

As part of the Rhynelands, Drake County is located within the Rocky Mountain Steppe biome in Kingdom 2. We are targeting a large area that will feature coastlines, mountains, forests, and grazing areas. More details will come at domain selection.

Tribes

As part of Kingdom 1/2, Drake County will be made up primarily of Hrothi, Neran, and Brudvir characters. However, we have active plans to import Kypiq, Dras, To'Resk, Waerd, and Janoa as well as the lost tribes when they are found. If you are interested in playing a non-native tribe, we will help you make the trip to our lands.


Values

As one of the founding members of Vornair, Count Vestan Drake is dedicated to the success of the Kingdom of Vornair and its citizens. He expects no less than a cooperative attitude with the Kingdom, Duchy, and County from all of his citizens. We will succeed by working together to protect the people and the resources of our communities.


Virtues

All Rhynelands Counts are asked to select a virtue that embodies the vision of their domain. Drake County is represented by the virtue of Courage. Courage is the ability to face your fears and overcome adversity. Courage is our path to adventure, innovation, and prosperity.

Organizations

We of Drake County are proud of the entrepreneurial spirit of our citizens. We are always looking for more organizations who want to call our county their home. Here are some of the organizations that are headquartered here:

The Adventurer's Guild of Vornair

Two Suns

Blackstone Forge Society

Artcraft Outfitters

Daemonscale Trading Co

Drake County Banks

Vornair Logging and Forestry

Volund's Hammer

The Order of the Golden Hind


Government Structure

Government

Our government is made up of many invested leaders who have been part of the community for years. It is broken into two primary branches: The Senate and the Mayoral Council.

The Senate

The primary governing body of the County is the Senate, made up of Counts and Mayors who have merged their titles in the interest of being a part of something much bigger than an average domain. Each Senator manages a government department that handles policy for the entire multi-county region. Both hereditary and elected Senator positions will be available, to allow for a balance between stability and fresh ideas.

Both the Count and the Senators represent the people of the County and we encourage every citizen to voice their ideas and opinions. Together we will work to develop a government that serves the people while ensuring that the County is an economic, military, and cultural beacon within the region.

The Mayoral Council

The Count will hold regular council with the Mayors and Barons of the County to discuss policies and laws that impact their settlements. The Count will represent their interests when discussing policies with the Senate.

Settlement specific policies and laws will be at the discretion of that settlement’s Mayor or City Council, so long as they do not conflict with those of the neighboring community settlements, County, Duchy, or Kingdom.


Our Focus

Economy

Economy

Our goal is to make the county as self-sufficient as our local resources allow us to be. We want to attract enough diversity in players to cover each market available to us, and then develop relationships with other counties to fill in the gaps and leverage our surpluses through trade.

We are looking for motivated individuals to join our community, either as part of the government or to form private businesses/schools/guilds for each profession.

Safety

Training

We strive to create a safe environment for our citizens to ply their trades without fear. We will be investing a significant amount of EP, people, and time to protect our settlements, roads, and natural resources.

All citizens, from farmers to blacksmiths to architects, are highly encouraged to learn the basics of combat and survival. The ability to defend yourself against a single bandit or raise up arms with your allies in an emergency could be the difference between life and death or starting over your business from scratch. To that end, the Adventurer’s Academy of Vornair, located in Drakinspire, will provide basic lessons in combat and survival to anyone interested.

Players interested in a combat-focused lifestyle will find many options available to them in our county:

The Adventurer's Guild of Vornair is a player-run adventuring guild headquartered within the county. Their mission is to take on player-created quests to explore dangerous areas, eliminate hostile threats, or simply travel among caravans to keep people safe. Whatever a citizen needs done, can probably be accomplished by an adventurer. The Adventurer's Guild of Vornair

The Department of Defense will oversee the County military, with the help of local Barons. Army and Navy personnel will focus most of their time training, drilling with Duchy military players and NPCs, and preparing for the inevitable battles to come. They will coordinate with the Duchy military, known as the Vaetfang or "The Order".

The Vaetfang

The Department of Homeland Security will oversee Law Enforcement within the County, with the help of local Mayors. Most of the boring jobs will be handled by NPCs, but players may be interested in serving as a Sheriff, Criminal Investigator, or Immigration Officer, to help keep crime down in their local area.

Culture

Drake Coliseum

One benefit of such a large county and combined resources is our ability to take on much larger-scale projects. Our plans already include a grand Coliseum, jousting tournaments, theme parks, hotels and casinos. What these all have in common is tourism, which will bring more people to our settlements and businesses.

Have an idea for a large project? Come join us and make it a reality!

Religion and destiny will play a big part of many players’ lives in Chronicles of Elyria. While Vornair may not have an official religion, our county will make every effort to utilize those mechanics for the betterment of our people. We plan to build massive cathedrals and monuments for whatever religion is prevalent in our society. We will also employ astrologers to help our citizens identify and chase down their destiny. Together, we can make sure that our community has many chapters in the story of this game.

Our community members also participate in other games, such as our CoE-themed West Marches Style 5E D&D group! Together we will build the lore and history of our county and settlements, one adventure at a time. Join us for our adventures in Elyria today!

Role Playing

Role Playing

While our community at large does not typically role play, we are accepting of those that do. Within Drake County lies the RP-friendly sub-community of Arcadia. If RP is your play style, this is where you'll find a thriving, active place to call home.


Our History

Dragon Egg

Jaxon Forge was never meant to follow in his father’s footsteps. From an early age he showed a passion for exploration and understanding the world around him, his courage often getting him into trouble. As a teen he would often sneak off to explore local caves. One night, as he tried to explore deeper than he ever had, long after his friends had abandoned him, he stumbled upon a strange metallic object. As he brought his torch closer to inspect it, he let out an audible gasp, echoing throughout the caverns. It could only be one of two things: a giant diamond, or a white dragon egg.

For years, Jaxon led a double life. He spent the day sweating over hot steel, bending metals to his will. But when he looked at his reflection in a new blade, all he saw….was a dragon. At night he would sneak back to the cave, where he set up a ramshackle campsite. He wouldn’t sleep, he just lay there, staring at the object, waiting…. Over time his red hair and beard grew long and tangled, his words jumbled from lack of sleep. His friends would no longer adventure with him to the caves, thinking he had lost his mind. But still he hammered on….still he returned to the cave.

Until one night, a night like any other, Jaxon turned the last bend in the caves and stopped in his tracks. On this night, the campsite lay torn to shreds and burned to a crisp. The object was gone. Someone had found and stolen his treasure. Jaxon fell to his knees, weeping, was he crazy? Was it just a diamond that he sat on for years, and had now lost forever? He crawled to a nearby precipice, planning to end it all.

Then he saw it, the shimmer reflecting his torchlight. A small shard of the object, like a piece of eggshell, had fallen into the pit. It was real! Shaking visibly, Jaxon donned his climbing gear and repelled into the pit to claim his prize. No other signs were anywhere, but he knew he was right all along. He had a renewed vigor. That night he returned to his home and packed his belongings, leaving a farewell note to his family before leaving, never to return again.

Jaxon set off on his mission to find this mysterious dragon. He was no longer Jaxon Forge. He began to introduce himself as Jaxon Drake, the Dragon Hunter, traveling from hamlet to village to town, following rumors of strange flying lizards. Over time, his name and story spread and young adventurers were inspired to follow in his footsteps.

Jaxon’s tale soon caught the attention of a minor Duke by the name of Vestan Krieger, who bestowed upon him the title of Chief Justice. Jaxon and the Duke’s daughter Erzabet fell in love, married and settled down in her estate in Sunset. The couple would go on to have many sons: Vestan, Francis, Jødel, Alexander, Mephistos, and Waeccan. Sadly, Erzabet would die in childbirth upon having her 6th son, Waeccan. Soon after, Duke Krieger died as well.

Duke Jaxon Drake could no longer risk adventuring on his own and began to send younger, more capable explorers to follow up on draconic rumors. This led to the formation of the Adventurer’s Guild. After spending years as an adventurer himself, the eldest son Vestan took up leadership of the guild and sent his brothers off to explore the far regions of the duchy. Years later, they returned, bringing with them grand stories, massive treasures, and deeds to all the lands in the region. Together those lands become known as Drake County.

Will you help us build the next chapter of this story?
