The Conquest of Elyria Returns!

By Caspian

Hail Elyrians!

It's that time again! It's quiet on the sixth floor of the Washington State Convention Center. There's a dull hum of exhibitors working on the finishing touches of their demos. If you peek your head out into the hallways, you can hear the rumble of the crowd; the throngs of people waiting to get inside the exhibition halls, wanting to begin their PAX West experience.

But this PAX West, we're bringing part of our PAX Experience to YOU, through our Conquest of Elyria Web/Mobile game.

How to Play

If you're new to Conquest, here's the rundown:

Conquest of Elyria is a cooperative and competitive game where players try and collect resources, build weapons, and then wage war on hostile domains. Conquest of Elyria can be played either at PAX West 2017, or if you've got an account with at least 250+ Influence, it can be played Online!

Whether you're at PAX or not, to play simply go to either chroniclesofelyria.com/conquest or ConquestOfElyria.com

Once there, there's just a few simple steps to play.

To start, join a domain of your choosing. Once you do, you'll be assigned a random resource type (Wood, Stone, or Metal).

The domains at this Conquest of Elyria game are:

  • The Duchy of Helmwood
  • The Grand County of Tolumbria
  • The County of Seabridge
  • The Grand County of Velsheland
  • The County of Salix
  • The County of Avorelle

After you've joined a domain, begin gathering resources. If you're playing online, go to the Gather tab and then enter the friend code of another active player. If you're at PAX you gain resources for you domain by finding other Conquest players and scanning their QR code. You can identify a Conquest player because they'll be wearing a neat little Chronicles of Elyria button that represents what material they have. Just click on the Gather tab and snap a picture of their QR code to receive their resource type.

Resources gathered by you and your fellow citizens are contributed to your Domain's overall score. The resources you collect can be used to build items to fight other Domains. To build items, click the build buttons on the resources tab.

Then, by 5pm each day choose a Domain to attack on the Attack tab. At 5PM, the Domains will go to war and the items you built throughout the day will contribute to your attack power against the Domain you selected. The Domain with the highest score at the end is that day's Conquest of Elyria winner!

But it's not as easy as it sounds. To be truly successful You'll need to coordinate with your cohorts to horde resources and plot your attack strategy against your opponents. To coordinate, you'll want to use any and all of the channels you can: Discord, Twitter, our forums - anything you can do to win.

Why? Because each resource you trade grants both you and them a resource. So be mindful of who you trade with, as you may just be funding the enemy.

Why should I play?

So you can win prizes, duh!

There are 3 different ways to win: as a domain, as an individual, or as a community! There's no reason not to go for all three.

1 - Domain Win

Be a member of the Domain who is the winner each day. The Prize: A PAX-West exclusive, in-game accessory. All members of the winning Domain will receive a ring, necklace, or bracelet - depending on the day - for their character to wear in-game. These trinkets match those earned at PAX East 2017, but are green instead of blue in homage of our Emerald City.

2 - Individual Win

Out of all the Domains, gather the single most resources for the day and you will win an in-game Suit of Armor, Caparison, and Barding for your Horse! Best of all, the colors and crest will match the domain you represented during PAX West 2017 Conquest of Elyria! (Limit one)

3 - Community Win

Help spread the word and get 1000 new signups into the game. The Prize: Exclusive, in-game PAX West cloak. All players active in the Conquest of Elyria game will receive a cloak that their character may wear in-game. Every 1000 signups, the quality of the cloak increases!

So who should I trade with?

So how do you know who truly belongs to which domain? You don't. In Chronicles of Elyria, it won't be immediately apparent where another character's loyalties lie, and they might even be in disguise. Fealty to a Domain will be a point of pride and contention in Elyria, so we want to simulate that aspect during Conquest of Elyria. So feel free to ask what domain someone belongs to... or feel free to lie!

Rules on Posting Friend Codes

One final note on the rules. To trade resources online you simply go to the gather tab and enter another player's friend code. This is going to encourage a LOT of people posting their friend codes in different places.

We're ok with that, with the following two exceptions:

  • Don't spam the forums with your friend codes. It's ok to have it in your signature, but don't post your friend code in post bodies and don't spam the forums to get your code seen.
  • Don't spam the CoE Discord - ANY CHANNEL with your Friend Code.

So what does that leave? Everything else! Use other forums to share your codes, use the friend codes of YouTube streamers, search the web for friend codes other people have posted, send PMs, Facebooks, Emails, and of course, Twitter.

And if you do use Social Media, Make sure to include @SoulboundStudio #PAXWest2017 #ConquestOfElyria.

That's all folks. Get started now if you've got 250+ Influence by going to chroniclesofelyria.com/conquest!

And if you happen to be at PAX West this weekend, make sure to stop by our booth to trade with our staff - especially if you haven't purchased a pledge package yet. You can find us here:

Pledged to the Continued Advancement of the Soulborn Engine and the Chronicling of Elyria,

Can you say player code list + copy paste script?

Yeah :/ I'd much appreciate something a bit more... enjoyable as well. Sure I could write a spider to pregmatchall /(?<!\d\w)([A-F\d]){6}[\s\n.:]+/i, compile a massive list and feed it to the form, but that's not really my style.

Ironside - 1 year ago

@Caspain I'm sorry, I love you guys, but this competition is incredibly boring. Can you say player code list + copy paste script? Because that is all people are doing. Hmm...Fun... ....low grade.

Who would have thought data entry Wars could be so much fun. :P Thanks for including us SBS.

yes the exact time of reset is unknown unless you know for sure that is

Amira - 1 year ago

@Serpentius per Caspian's post "Be a member of the Domain who is the winner each day." - which means it resets each day. Precisely when that occurs isn't something I can share

so when we get the msg that the code is already used it means it can still be used, we just dont know when the reset point happens?

Antaryon - 1 year ago

@Serpentius

If you have some time, could you answer me these questions in regards to Conquest of Elyria?

How is the winner each day determined, that is how does one "score" points, what determines how much points you get?

Also does the unused amount of resources and created amount of weapons reset each day?

Leonardo_Loriano - 1 year ago

Give's us something to do and hey there are rare in-game items to win. That's more than enough reason to waste a weekend.

Aurra Sing - 1 year ago

That is a weird way to killing time.

LeadBaxton - 1 year ago

So Caspian, I assume the community goal will be reviled after Conquests of Elyria? Are we anywhere near breaking that 3000 mark?

Congratulations to Helmwood for their win, but now it's time for Avorelle to shine! :p

yumyum36 - 1 year ago

I don't want to be a killjoy of any sort, but I have 0 Influence on my account and can still apparently play.

Is it just open to everyone, or do you only get the rewards from playing if you have 250 or more influence?

Not from what has been posted in the discord I created for conquest but there are quite a few people on there sharing codes ^.^

VioletWinterlynn - 1 year ago

Conquest of Elyria Discord

This discord is for all talks about Conquest, it has a different private text channel for each of the domains which people use to either post other domain discords in or message friend codes in. There is a general chat for talking as well as a friend code chat for everyone to just post ^.^ This is so that the message boards dont get filled with spam of friend codes as well as different discords and so that everyone can have fun!

When you join just @ a moderator of this discord and we can get your tags set up.

(This discord is from users who all want to have fun on conquest and not an sbs discord so please keep that in mind and still be mindful of others!)

This is so oddly cool-fun. Simple and involving, nice move guys.

Omni222 - 1 year ago

Yeah, it's really awesome that they're allowing us to take part in it and giving potential loot as well for doing so. Definitely a good way to tie the community together and get us all involved. If I may ask NIHZ, what domain are you reping?

NiHZ - 1 year ago

This is fabulous, I'm glad we're allowed to play from home this year!

Omni222 - 1 year ago

Thanks everyone at SBS, this seems really cool and looking forward to being able to experience some of PAX from at home.
