Two years ago we put our future in your hands by launching our Kickstarter. With big risk comes big reward, and the Chronicles of Elyria community came through that month, and since then, in spades. We have made tons of progress in the last year, but we never would have been able to get started without that initial Kickstarter.
Last Kickstarter-versary we offered our existing backers rewards based on the total amount spent on pledge packages and EP. Rewards ranged from 10% Store Credit all the way to a bonus Courtier Package which could be used to add value to an existing pledge package or gifted to a friend. Those rewards were recently applied, so make sure to check out your new EP totals and pledge packages!
To say thank you once again for that successful Kickstarter, and to share the rewards with the community that has joined us on this journey, we're launching continuous promotions throughout the month of May. This year, starting on May 7th and going through the end of the month, each week we'll be adding fresh new items to the store as well as bringing some favorites out of the vault for a limited time only. As well, we're adding a fun new challenge with a big reward at the end if we can meet our goals (Hint: it rhymes with Ferrari). But we're not going to make you wait until the final prize. We have eleven other community rewards that everyone can partake in if we reach our milestones throughout the month. See below for all the details!
In addition to the prizes listed below, and in addition to the weekly promotions we'll be running, there's a few other events happening throughout the month.
Kicking off this celebration we've got a surprise for all those with noble aspirations. Beginning Monday, May 7th, a modified Courtier package will return to the store! This light package, much like in the Free Kingdom event, lacks the Design Experiences, but otherwise comes with all the rest of the benefits. There are still openings for these high level positions, and we know many of you have been requesting its return for a while. So if you want the chance to rule, don't wait!
Also coming back for a limited time are the 3 share packs: Carriage for Two, Cottage for Two, and Buy the Farm. For those community members looking to play with friends or family, make sure you take this opportunity to start with everything you need to play together.
But wait, there's more! Last seen in February, the 3,000 EP pack is a highly sought after prize that is coming back for a limited time only. But it is not alone. In addition to getting 3,000 EP for $200, you can now get 2,250 EP for just $150! Make sure to snap these up while available, as they won't last long! Been planning to run some community competitions? Have a mother or wife to celebrate in May? No problem. The giftable versions of these items will also be made available!
NOTE: All of these promotions will end at 12PM (noon) PDT on June 1st, 2018.
If total sales reach the indicated amount next to each reward between May 1st and May 31st, those items will either be unlocked in the store, or added as a freebie to your inventory. Rewards are only given to those with completed packages by the end of May, 2018.
NOTE: All of these reward milestones will end at 12PM (noon) PDT on June 1st, 2018.
Whether you backed us during the Kickstarter, got a package later from our online store, or are just hearing about the game for the first time, there is something for everyone. We've all been working hard to make this dream a reality and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts and welcome you into our community! Look for the first weekly post with info on the new items and those coming back next Monday, May 7th!
