1 May

The Celebration Has Begun!

By Vye

Hail and well met, friends,

The promotion is live!


The first week of May kicks off the first of the events with a limited-time, 10% discount on pledge packages. Whether you have a package on layaway you've been chipping away at, you're ready to take the plunge and support the development of Chronicles of Elyria, or you'd like to pick up some extra packages for your friends and family, May is a great month to do so! Any package that is paid-off fully by the end of May is 10% off! At the end of the month, the prices will go back to normal.

In addition, referrals will be giving you a bigger bonus if May is the month that they finally decide to back us and join you in Elyria. The typical reward is 50 Influence and $5 store credit but, during May, you'll enjoy a 100% increase: 100 Influence and $10 store credit! Store credit can be used on anything in the shop.

May is the anniversary of our Kickstarter and we're celebrating all month with special promotions! Check out the announcement post for full details about the different events going on this month.

Pledged to Your Continued Adventures in Life, Both Actual and Fantasy,

Vye

Hi again community!

Hi have another question for you:

Let's say I want to buy 2 counties; according to SBS, "Kingdoms, Duchies, Counties don't stack. Settlements will be 2x in size"

That is a bit confusing.

Are they saying that if I pledge for a second county to govern, the amount of land owned won't change? Is it worth the be owner of a second county/duchy?

Hello community too! .. good point. So.. I believe the king will get a capital.

City for dukes and town for ALL THE counts (picking selection aivability).

Or maybe.. the most influential count can get a city too. That would lead to a IP race I guess. Am I wrong?

Can I just quickly mention how much I love that SbS was willing to take a risk and make the 4th week a surprise?

I'm not even being sarcastic.

I doubt I'm in the majority when I say that I love surprises.
Nothing brings joy and excitement more than a wrapped gift that can't be opened until a predetermined date.
Even if it's something small.
Even if it's not what we were hoping for.
It's a treat life rarely affords us.
Thanks Soulbound Studios.

Great news! It looks like this might well be the month where I will buy a pledge pack.

Poo, I guess I misunderstood the QA and paid off my package just before May came. That's unfortunate, at least it's done though.

Aw well, you will still get a present depending on your IP level! That's something.

They are giving existing backers prior to May 1st rewards based on the "total amount spent on pledge packages" [not Influence Level] at the time that the rewards are granted. The rewards will be applied sometime "after Account Merging but before Domain Selection." So these backers will be rewarded for any upgrades or side-grades [for merging] purchased during the sale.

Will the Week 2 3000 EP sale also include the IP just like the packages in the store include?

You get IP whenever you purchase something from the Store, whether it is EP, Sparks, or packages ($1=10 IP). For the EP sale next week, if you buy it you will get 2,000 IP ($200) added to your existing number.

Shouldn't you fix the store for the persons who backed in the first place? i still have 50$ credit, and nothing else. NONE of my rewards from my kickstarter pledge is there!

Hi Fuffenstein,

There was a regression that re-surfaced in the latest store release. What we got from Kickstarter was just the amount of money each person paid during their backing - including the minimum reward amount as well as any over-payments they made.

We then look up the pledge tier they purchased by the minimum reward amount and use that to assign rewards. However, with the recent sale, the pledge tier prices no longer match the minimum reward amount we received from Kickstarter.

We're aware of the issue, and this morning we've implemented a fix, as well as a script to grant people who bound their Kickstarters in the last day the correct rewards.

Within a few hours your issue should be resolved.

Sincerely,
Caspian

For now, you would have to create another account on the forums and purchase the pack with the new account. SBS will be merging accounts at a later date.
