16 September

We're celebrating our Kickstarter-versary!

By Serpentius

Hail and well met, Elyrians,

Though we usually celebrate our Kickstarter-versary a little earlier in the year, there was no way we were going to let the anniversary pass without taking the time to stop and say Thank You to every one of our supporters. We've come a long way in the time since the original Kickstarter and we will still never forgot the outpouring of support that made it all possible. In that one month span, the Chronicles of Elyria community coalesced around our vision of an online experience that was more than just a game, but a truly dynamic and interesting world, as well. And, since then, the support hasn't stopped. This game is being built as a direct result of that support!

As a way to say thank you to our original backers once more, and to extend that thank you to each and every one of you who has helped us push this dream forward, we're launching an ongoing Kickstarter-versary promotion through the next four weeks. Every player who has a Chronicles of Elyria pledge package by the end of the promotion will receive a suite of gifts from the studio, ranging from unique recipes for treats and adult beverages up to a steadfast and loyal companion for you to take on your adventures! Each gift is a small but heartfelt expression of our gratitude for your continued support!

Last Kickstarter-versary, we set forth a challenge, and wow the community tackled it with gusto, coming together in a show of camaraderie and unity that still awes us, today. So, this year we are putting forth a new challenge, with a new amazing reward, and 8 additional prizes to be had along the way. But those aren't the only rewards we want to give you. As a special thank you, those who participate in the promotional sale each week will receive rare ingredients from distant shores and hard-to-reach ecotopes, ingredients that can be used with exclusive recipes, one of which will be awarded to each player that participates throughout the entire 2019 Kickstarter-versary event. See below for the details!

As we're focusing on the adventure ahead, exploration, discovery, and growth are strongly on our minds. These are the themes of the promotions you'll see as we celebrate your support and the world of Elyria. But a journey into the unknown can only be measured by looking back at where one has been, and this Kickstarter-versary is no exception. Every day, we are bringing back two items from the vault in a special sale. Each item will return to the vault after 24 hours, so be sure to keep an eye out; many rare items that haven't been since they were first offered will be available during their limited windows!

In addition to the rewards and prizes listed below, one more event will occur during the Kickstarter-versary time:

Show Us Your Domain!

During first three weeks of the Kickstarter-versary, any player who has claimed a domain of any size can participate in a contest to "Show us your Domain" - We will accept a short (750 words or less) story about your domain, or an image that depicts your domain in some way. Over the last week of the kickstarter-verary, we will judge the entrants and choose a winner and a runner up for each server from both categories (Stories and imagery). The winners from each category will receive 5000 EP to use to improve their domains and they'll be granted a unique gift from the team in the form of a monument that can be placed in their domain, affecting the domain in a positive way that is themed to the entrant's submission! This is, in essence, a mini-design experience, though the studio is going to pick the monument's final form and its unique benefit. The runners-up in each category will receive 5000 EP to use to improve their domains as well!

To enter post your submission in the fan media forum with "[Show Us Your Domain]" at the start of your post's title. And, please, observe the limit of one entry per domain or settlement holder.

We can't wait to see your domains!

Update 10/4/2019: Since some of you haven't chosen your domains yet and have voiced your desire to participate in this contest, we are extending the cut off for submitting your entries 7 days from the last submission deadline. This sets the new deadline to submit your entry to Monday, October 14th at midnight pacific time.

Ingredients and Recipes from Far Off Shores

Once each week during the Kickstarter-versary event, every player that purchases an item from the promo category or a tournament token from the store will receive two randomly-picked, rare resources. These resources will be from a collection of unusual items gathered from distant shores or hard-to-reach ecotopes. Each ingredient has its own special properties that are passed on to any item they're used to craft and each ingredient is a required element in at least one of 8 exclusive recipes that can be acquired at the end of the promotion: One of these recipes will be awarded to every player that makes at least one qualifying purchase in every week of the promotion. Every ingredient and recipe can be traded to other players, so don't forget to reach out to your fellow community members to get that special recipe or ingredient you need!

2019 Kickstarter-versary Community Reward Milestones:

If total sales reach the indicated amount next to each reward during the Kickstarter-versary celebration, those items will either be unlocked in the store, introduced to the game, or added as a freebie to your inventory. Rewards are only given to those with paid-off pledge packages by the end of the celebration period.

  • $40k - Clock - While technically "portable" this mechanical timepiece is perhaps better suited for a desk or a table than a backpack.

  • $80k - Rock Lantern - A stout but small iron box with a handle on its top for easy transport, and a removable screw-off lid on its front. When the lid is removed, a small, silvery rock can be seen held in place by iron rods at its top and bottom. On its back is a slot that holds a metal flask containing an alcohol solution - whiskey from the smell. When a few milliliters of the liquor is splashed on the rock in the lantern, it will glow brightly for about an hour.

  • $120k - Travel Stone - A rough-cut milky-white crystal. When held up to the eye, the sun can be seen through it even on a dark and cloudy day.

  • $160k - EP Store Voucher - You will receive a voucher for a free Profession, Store Front, or Land Use Exposition Kits from the EP Store (does not apply toward limit of 1 per category, per title). Note: This item will be awarded to Bloodline+ pledge package holders, only.

  • $200k - Marked Account - Anyone that has a pledge package by the end of the event will receive the "Marked" tag on their account. Marked accounts have an elevated chance of receiving a talent whenever creating a character until a talent is discovered. Note: This item will be awarded to Bloodline+ pledge package holders, only.

  • $240k - Ao's Coin - Once, these small metal tokens with a hole through their centers were worn by most of the Qindred faithful but they are a relatively rare sight to be seen hanging from a bracelet or necklace today. The old beliefs taught that each token represented AO's grace, and protected the life of the wearer. Cast in silver and rimmed in copper, it's believed this offering can be used once to buy your way back from true death. Note: This item will be awarded to Bloodline+ pledge package holders, only.

  • $280k - Gliders! - Glider technology is added to the game and available at launch. Glider Kit added to the store for the remainder of the promotion.

  • $320k - Cannibalism - Drasean naturalists discover that consuming the remains of deceased (perma-dead) mann can increase one's longevity at the expense of reputation and affinity.

  • $360k - Astral Dreaming - Janoa masters long ago discovered the secret to entering the astral plane as they sleep. If you can find a master of this art and learn from them, this secret can be yours as well.

Thanks to you smashing the milestones very early on, we've added additional ones to achieve (including a few you already have!).

  • $380k - Hunter's Cloak - Made of a thick weave of oiled fibers, this cloak is both protection against the rain and camouflage for hunters in the wilds. The hunter's cloak is reversible and dyed in a different pattern on each side. On one side, a pattern in shades of green that seems to mimic both leaves and grasses, perfect for summer & spring or the more lush biomes of Elyria. The other side is dyed in shades of Fall -- blotchy tans and browns -- to better blend in with more arid climates. When worn, the cloak makes it much easier to hide one's visual presence, but it will not mask the sounds you make.

  • $420k - Double Rare - For the remaining weeks of the event, every package holder that earns a rare ingredient award will instead receive double the normal amount of ingredients awarded!

  • $480k - Hot House - Ever ingenious, Kypiq tinkerers have discovered ways to keep the heat of Angelica's light trapped within a room using thin sheets of mica or oiled rice paper to create primitive greenhouses! This technology can be learned and applied to constructions in any biome.

  • $560k - Seed Your Destiny - Take hold of the threads of fate and play an active part in shaping your character's destiny! During the character creation process you will be able to use story points to indicate your desire for certain types of story arcs to the Story Engine. As a bonus, all Bloodline+ package holders will be able to use this system for free during Exposition!

  • $660k - Subterranean Volcanic Ecotope - In some places in Elyria, the water boils out of the ground hot and sulfurous. Beneath these locations, a secret lies: Rivers and lakes of molten rock flow through the underground, heating the water above. This complex chemistry creates rare minerals and reveals rare ores, for those intrepid enough to dig to find them and hardy enough to return alive. (Subterranean Lava Ecotopes will be included throughout the starting continent of your server)

  • $780k - Adventure Islands - Most sailors know that small islands lay just out of view on the horizon; some even have maps to the islands they have visited. But those who have sailed furthest, before storm tossed waters and dangerous shoals forced them back, report seeing larger islands on the horizon, shrouded in mists, murky nights punctuated by eerie cries growing louder as they approached. Are these undiscovered lands unspoiled paradises waiting to be discovered, or monster-infested hellscapes meant to try the souls of mann? (Greater islands will be added at the farthest edges of sailable territory, waiting to be discovered by those skilled and brave enough to survive the attempt)

NOTE: All of these reward milestones will end at 12PM (noon) PDT on the final day of the promotion.

Something Special for You!

And don't forget: Each week of the promotion where you buy at least one promotional item you'll receive two rare crafting ingredients you won't be able to find easily on your starting continent. These ingredients are used in special recipes, and players that purchase an item in each week of the promotion will receive one of these recipes at the end of the event!

Finally, as a special thank you for your support, every player with a paid off pledge package will receive a suite of gifts at the end of the end of the promotion, containing:

  • Versary Monkey - A rare sight, even in the tropical rainforests they typically call home, Versary monkeys are highly sought after pets and companions. Famed for their trainability, Janoa hunters have been known to use them as harassers on the hunt, while less... reputable folks have been known to train them to cut purses and pick pockets. But whether you need a pet that can fetch items for you while crafting, or you need a partner in crime and combat, Versary Monkeys can fill that need.

  • Infinity Oracle - A relic of a lost age, this polished, black, stone orb bares the symbol of the infinite inlayed in onyx against a disc of milky, white quartz on its top. If the orb is turned to see its bottom, a small window of clear cut crystal reveals a murky interior. When asked a question, the smokey, murky, interior will clear momentarily to reveal a phrase, an answer to the question. Many argue the Oracle's ability to truthfully answer the question posed, but there are times when its responses seem like prophecy, and even more intriguing, no one knows how they work or how they were constructed: the knowledge has been lost in the haze of history.

  • A Round on Us - Each player with a game package by the end of the event will receive a voucher good for a round of drinks at any legendary tavern! Just enter the tavern and use the voucher and the tavern will immediately gain enough ingredients to mix its signature drink for everyone currently in the tavern.

But wait, there's more!

During our previous Kickstarter-versaries, backers were eligible to receive a veritable cornucopia of prizes and awards.

Everyone who was a backer by the end of last year's celebration will receive these items in their inventory:

  • Kypiq Party Pack - Everything you need to join the Kypiq as they entice the sun back into the sky during the Sunsight festival: three packets of glowing Kypiq Star Powder, a slingshot to launch them into the sky, and a Kypiq noisemaker to really bring the party home.
  • Purebread Horse & Pattern - No one really knows when the first Purebread horse came prancing out of an Elyrian oven but, ever since, the purebread horse has been a delicacy across all of the known world. Adorably tasty and great for sandwiches!
  • Pack bonuses - Each currently owned
  • Adventurer's Pack gets a Basic Camping Kit (Bedroll, Traveler's Mess Kit, Flint, Tarp, 10 meters of rope)
  • Founder's Pack gets a portable Astrolabe, a star map, and a codex of basic navigation (Pathfinding & Wayfinding Handbook)
  • Merchant's Pack gets an Uncommon Writing Set (crystal ink phial and silver nibbed quill), local market report, and codex of basic Appraisal (The Savvy Merchant's Guide to Appraisal)
  • Special Title - Title: the Venerable Description: There's just something about you that seems to go way back. Maybe you've got wisdom beyond your years or your lineage goes way back but, either way, you're unmistakable! Effect: All your fame gained is increased by 10% for the character this title is used on.
  • Mystery Gift - The label says "Do not open until launch" in Pyqsi, the language of the Kypiq. It's heavy, which begs the question of what's inside, but we don't suggest opening it early. And for your own good, don't try to shake it to hear what's inside!
  • Extra Soul Pack with an Old Soul - The soul pack contains three random souls, ready to enter the world Elyria with the power of your spark of life. Activating a character requires both a soul and a spark of life, but the soul will develop and learn skills when used each lifetime. One of the souls in this pack has lived more than one lifetime in Elyria and comes to you with the experience and skill ramps to prove it.

We'll be awarding these items throughout the event, so expect these things to hit your inventory by the conclusion of this year's Kickstarter-versary.

Additionally, we've named the winners from the Token Contest that ran during our 2017 Kickstarterversary.

Sincerely,

The Soulbound Studios Staff

No worries, they’ll come in time. Maybe we could even get 2 as a thank you for being only around 34k shy of a million raised?

I feel like the last 2 will just add a lot more work for them and some people will never see these areas unless they travel for months.

still thanks for willing to add to the game.

Would still like to see a huge leap and you guys hire another person or something to help out, Even a social media campaigner. Quick looks at this game make it look poor, Have to dive in to believe

Not necessarily, they already planned for both volcanic micro-biomes and smaller sea islands. Adding a subterrean volcanic ecotope and larger islands further out that can support more adventurous content doesn't need to be a far leap from previous planned content. It could just be some extra engineering of the procedural engine with a few extra unique assets thrown in for all we know, anything beyond that will be SBS going the extra mile really.

They are hiring as needed when appropriate, no worries; reaching those funding goals will allow them the flexibility to look for additional people. Them not spelling it out to us, and declaring who exactly they will look for doesn't mean they won't hire more.

Lots of folks are seeing turn offs here. I do not. Yes, there are promotions...let em make some more money. I support, not by buying shinies, but by buying EP for the world building portion. If all the money I have given is for nothing, then so be it. But if by backing, this game come to be...it will be epic! Love what I am seeing. Domain selection was fun, and I can't wait to see more.

Zyre - 2 months ago

This is my 1st post, so I'd like to chime in.

Kickstarters are essentially "money grabs" for capital for a project.

They have a vision and that vision can quickly become "blurred" when cash starts to flow in and then get "bogged" down in "feature creep" ( i won't allude to the other "spectacle" that is still ongoing with selling packages).

Holding an event like this is a quick infusion of potential cash.

ZeroMGA & Jak0theShadows make truely vaild points with regard to PTW and lore.

I was drawn also to the "low tech" vision this game presents. (ZeroMGA) be he has a valid point on the "Battle Cats/gliders" from the initial introduction of CoE this type of mechanic seems also going against the original concept that drew me to CoE

Jak0theShadows - point about PTW is valid but maybe out of context- do those actual "benefits" actually give an advantage over one player to another or is it just "cosmetic" in nature.

All in all I have yet to have the luxury of actually being on a server to this date to validate or rebuke many of the points in this thread.

In the end when i do have the chance to get on the server, that will be when my final decision will be made.

In summary the events that grab "backers" to me is a sign that they are running low on cash and the the "feature creep" may have been set in motion to pease the majority of the community.

Adventure well in CoE when the time comes... we will live and die in a world that they/we had a small hand in creating.

ZeroMGA - 2 months ago

I've got to admit, battle cats, gliders, and cannibalism all sound like terrible ideas.

I backed and supported CoE on the premise of a low tech, low fantasy world. Magic cat mounts that don't exactly say to me that the supernatural is rare, and gliders that just scream to me BotW or AA, where you get to cover vast distances with little effort, seem to really defeat both ideas that attracted me to CoE.

Cannibalism just sits poorly with me, as a whole. Blah blah immersion and grim world blah blah still not a fan. Even worse that it's the tier before astral dreaming >.>

SkepticalViking - 2 months ago
@ZeroMGA:

I have to admit, I tend to sympathize with this reply. I, too, got into CoE from the initial kickstarter because of the notion that some of the cooler technologies were going to be discovered by players and unlocked a good, long while after launch - after we had invested lots of time studying our crafts.

It seems to me gliders would be perfect examples of this sort of technology, that we have to start by walking or using horses across the great expanse that is Elyria, then opening up new methods of transport once some few amazing players had discovered the invention of gliding - a perfect reward for hard graft and effort. Imagine, also, the implications for politics as well as player-driven story (something else that initially attracted me to CoE). How amazing would it be if one realm had invented gliders first. This could open up new industry for that realm, or even cause others to go to war with them over it. These little things make potentially huge impacts and really add to the potential for player-driven story. Making gliders available to players from the get-go seems to negate all of this - a serious shame.

Like ZeroMGA, I, too, was drawn in by the low-fantasy (with very rare high-fantasy elements) setting, so battle cats were also a turn off for me when announced.

This is all just personal preference, of course, but one built on an initial vision - I just hope we don't end up deviating too far from the original vision that attracted many of us to CoE in the first place.

Food for thought...

Cannibalism is cool though ;)

Aspector - 2 months ago
@ZeroMGA:

Its low fantasy not no fantasy. There's been ridable Ursaphants and War Trisons and Otterbears but cats is where you draw the line? Also technology is going to advance all the way to the industrial era, where gliders existed. Not to mention prototypes by Leonardo Da Vinci in the 1400's. Many people want cannibalism too, which is a realistic concept.

This all fits entirely in their vision for low tech and fantasy. You not wanting them doesn't mean they're bad ideas.

I find that one weird. For years and years, people everywhere have been asking about it. Basically always getting "no it won't be in the game". Now suddenly it could be? But only if we hit the stretch goal for it. Does it only have a chance to be added, because people have been asking about it for so long?

I liked that they cut off their original stretch goals to make sure feature creep couldn't happen. Now seems they just have different ways of starting it back up again.

Jak0theShadows - 2 months ago

I hate how pay to win this game is. Now even the promotion event is about who can spend the most money to get more pay to win tangible benefits. I wish I could get a refund. I regret supporting this now.

I believed in the vision of creating an interesting world to play in, so I was happy to buy a place in that world. Games are, to me at least, a place to escape to from the real world, not to be reminded how much poorer I am from everyone else.

Villager Token Contest Winners

Prize: The Mayor with the most Villager Tokens (per server) is guaranteed to have a major story event occur in their settlement!

What happened to the Kickstartversary 2017 token contest being a raffle? That's the only reason I bought my one and solitary token.

Vye clearly stated it was a raffle back then.

Each Token is ultimately an entry into a raffle with prizes as follows:

That's only true for the weekly special ingredients! According to the Q&A it depends:

Q9: Does the progress meter count store credit used? A9: No, only cash spent applies to the progress bar.

Q10: Do purchases made with store credit count towards the weekly "special rare ingredients" awards? A10: Cash and store credit will earn the weekly awards.

You know the answer to your rhetorical word salad:

Raffles have legal and tax definitions - with legal and tax ramifications. Some states and juridictions may restrict the participation of their residents over the internet (or in any form). Participation thus would be limited to a subset or portion of the given community involved.

This would not be that because of the in kind value bought through the purchase of the token.

If it's truly random one is as good as twenty or two hundred.

Cheers!

@Whoever is actually making these PR decisions and writeups.

What in the world is going on?

"Q15: I thought the 2017 Kickstarterversary Token contest was a raffle?

A15: It was not. The term raffle was used to describe how the tokens were collected, but we do not operate raffles and this contest was based on accumulating the largest number of tokens."

So, last time, when you said "raffle" you didn't mean an "actual raffle", you just meant "we will select the winner based off of who accumulates the most tokens" (which was not said, or hinted at, at all).

You then go on to say that you "do not operate raffles", yet are having one for this event, which will actually be operated as "real raffle", despite choosing not to use the actual word?

Or are you not actually running it as a raffle, in which case, what is the point of accumulating multiple tokens, if you are just picking "a winner at random from among the Tournament Token holders"? One token should be all you need to enter once in the "random selection" as a token holder, with no benefit gained from multiple tokens.

Are you not actually picking a winner from the holders at random? Maybe you are using a weird "SBS definition" again, and actually mean "selecting the person with the most tokens".

Are you giving each token holder multiple "names in the hat" based on how many tokens they hold? Because that is literally the concept behind a "raffle".

How does this makes sense, at all, to anyone? What kind of knots did you have to tie in your logical processes to get here?

Wouldn't it have been easier to simply cop to the misunderstanding, apologize, and move on, as opposed to this Gordian Knot of cognitive dissonance?

People wonder why I am "constantly complaining" about SBS's communication...

This. This is why I am constantly harping on it. Because it is simply bad, and frankly, starting to look like blatant dishonesty.

PS

Here is the definition of "raffle" in case it wasn't clear:

raf·fle1 /ˈrafəl/

noun

a means of raising money by selling numbered tickets, one or some of which are subsequently drawn at random, the holder or holders of such tickets winning a prize.

synonyms: lottery, (prize) draw, sweepstake, sweep, tombola, ballot; More

If you do something, that meets the definition of a "raffle", and then try to say "oh, it's not a raffle", you are just playing word games with the intent to obfuscate the truth.

wait a sec... I thought every item counts except the titles/packages. So wouldn t sparks, EP, Mounts, the headstone, heraldry ect count too ?

The text was a bit different initially which led to believe that you can buy anything from store excluding titled and pledged, it was something like this:

Once each week, every player that purchases an item (excluding titles and pledge packages) from the store during the promotion will receive two randomly-picked, rare resources from a collection of unusual resources gathered from distant shores or hard-to-reach ecotopes

now changed to:

Once each week during the Kickstarter-versary event, every player that purchases an item from the promo category or a tournament token from the store will receive two randomly-picked, rare resources.

in order to avoid such confusion as I understood

Man I wish I knew what wacky version of Raffle they meant 2 years ago. The one where you draw a random ticket (in this case digital token) to win. Or the one where you have the most tickets(tokens) to win... Guess nobody can do a quick definition check.

"Something Special for You! And don't forget: Each week of the promotion where you buy at least one promotional item you'll receive two rare crafting ingredients you won't be able to find easily on your starting continent. "

so, is it any non title or pledge item that gives you a reward or any item available during these 3 weeks?

I think he’s more referring to one quote saying buy anything you get 2 ingredients and the other that says buy any promotion item and get 2 ingredients. Or in other words, do we get 2 for buying anything* and another 2* for buying any promotion for 4 ingredients total.

Just to clarify - the only items which qualify are "Any promo item, including the tournament token"? I was specifically going after the $200 EP packages but rather pointless if they won't apply.

Edit: Rather poor to suddenly change wording part way through as the original version allowed it.

Janoa already have the masters as I understand - so they can and do. The reward is about dispersing that mastery beyond that initial Janoan 'priesthood' - which would likely happen any way. Cheers!

Gliders and cannibalism are the true target of the majority of my disdain.

Curious about this myself. Does this mean I can buy the Arena week 1, then the remaining weeks spread out buying Tournament Tokens and I'd receive all of the bonus ingredients for the event?

Abigor - 2 months ago

Wow KSA came out unexpectedly, but it’s a welcome surprise.

That said I kinda wish we don’t reach cannibalism and glider marks. First feels like a weird addition after saying that it won’t be in game for so long, second is something I wish we could discover through research in latter stages of the game instead of having it available at the start.

Question about the "Ingredients and Recipes from Far Off Shores"--

1) Would buying any of the tokens every week make a player eligible for the resources and Recipes?

2) would buying with store credit affect the eligibility for these rewards?

ArokVaar - 2 months ago

Question about the $200k milestone on marked accounts-

1) how much is "elevated chance" of receiving a talent? like 0.00001% or +5% increase or such? (trying to get an understanding on sbs usage of certain words since many times things are vague and creates a lot of miscommunication and misunderstanding )

2) does the elevated chance stay on account until the player discovers it? - a) if undiscovered by player and lives a life.. upon char creation the elevated chance still in effect? - b) if talent is eventually discovered by a player in a life, does that mean the "elevated chance" is now over for the account and further new chars created wont have the "elevated chance"?

Wow.. I had thought we wouldn't unlock this until many years into the game. The rumours around all that tech over the years. I'm not sure if it's awesome that it's getting unlocked at launch or not.

I'm looking forward to using the magic 8 ball though.

Yeah, that one takes a bit of the drive, now doesn’t it. Not that I don’t want us to unlock them and I most certainly would buy one... but that’s just not the same.

Just take a play out of the Nexon playbook - Anyone who has spent $135+ on the game, between KS and post-KS, is eligible for the KSV rewards. The EP Store Voucher makes sense for Bloodlines+ because lower levels can't use EP, but restricting paying customers from Marked Account and Ao's Coin is disincentivizing to everyone else.

Please review the following questions and answers below, just in case there is information that is pertinent to you. Don't submit a support ticket or ask a question about this event before reading this FAQ in its entirety.

Thank you for your cooperation and participation!

FAQ

Week 1

Q1: I've made a purchase, when will I receive my rare ingredients?
A1: Your items will be awarded to you at the end of each week of the promotion. At the end of the entire promotion, those players that have earned rare ingredients during every week of the promotion will also be awarded a rare recipe that uses some of the rare ingredients players can earn each week.

Q2: Can AO's coin save you from old age?
A2: It can save you the first time you die of an age related problem but it won't actually make you any healthier. This means that your character's true death is still be very likely and will happen very soon: In the end, death is inescapable.

Q3: What happens when I use Ao's coin when I drown at sea?
A3: You will wash ashore near the last settlement you visited, wherever that may be.

Q4: Will the items go away after each week or will they remain for the duration of the event?
A4: The new promotional items will go away at the end of each week, Vault items are returned to the vault at the end of every day.

Q5: Will rewards be available for new players? (i.e. will new players who join after the 3rd Kickstarter-versary get them?)
A5: To receive any of the account specific in-game rewards, such as the Clock, Rock Lantern, Marked Character, or Ao's Coin reward, a new player will have to acquire at least an Elyrian Package before the end of the promotion period. All other rewards, such as unlocking glider technology, will be available on all servers to all players through normal game play.

Q6: Will the Ancient Tapestry be awarded to my main character, or will all of my characters receive it?
A6: The Ancient Tapestry will appear in the inventory of the first character you create and use to enter the world of Elyria.

Q7: The Arena says it requires a Town or higher to place in, but a Bloodline package holder can purchase it, how does that work?
A7: During exposition, you will be unable to place your Arena outside of a settlement, or in a settlement that is a Hamlet, or Village. You will need to acquire the rights to build on at least two parcels of a Town-class settlement from the mayor or similar authority before you will be able to place your Arena.

Q8: How does the Tournament of Champions contest work?
A8: Each player can purchase up to 10 Tournament of Champions tokens. These tokens can be purchased from the store, but they can also be traded or gifted to other players. Once a token has been sent to another player it will be automatically claimed by that player and cannot be sent again. Additionally, each Token has a unique ID associated with it. At the end of the promotion, we will randomly select one Token's ID from the list of IDs that have been purchased, and the player possessing that specific token will be declared the winner. We will then contact that player with further details after the promotion is concluded.

Q9: Does the progress meter count store credit used?
A9: No, only cash spent applies to the progress bar.

Q10: Do purchases made with store credit count towards the weekly "special rare ingredients" awards?
A10: Cash and store credit will earn the weekly awards.

Q11: What can one expect with the arena, what kind of events/uses will be possible with it?
A11: Snipehunter answered it sufficiently here.

Q12: How can I tell if an item in the promo section is a vault item leaving at the end of the day?
A12: Promo items will be spelled out in each weekly update post. Any items not spelled out there are vault items.

Q13: Why does the horizontal milestone tracker reset every time it fills up?
A13:The tracker is meant to show progress towards the current goal, rather than show overall progress. You can click on the "Upcoming Rewards" button or visit https://chroniclesofelyria.com/shop/rewards/ to view the overall progress.

Q14: Can you choose the gender of the Battlecat at when you redeem the voucher?
A14: Yes, but it is subject to availability of that gender from each NPC vendor.

Q15: I thought the 2017 Kickstarterversary Token contest was a raffle?
A15: It was not. The term raffle was used to describe how the tokens were collected, but we do not operate raffles and this contest was based on accumulating the largest number of tokens.

Q16: In reference to the Battlecats!, does the Semi-arid Desert also count as sub-tropical?
A16: The Semi-Arid Desert biome usually forms in the temperate latitude band and is considered a temperate semi-arid climate.

Q17: Which milestone rewards are tradeable?
A17: The Clock, Rock Lantern, and Travel Stone are tradeable, others are not.

Q18: Can I send the Cottage for Two to a friend?
A18: No, only the Bloodline package inside the bundle may be sent.

Q19: I would like to know more about the "Show us your domain" contest, where can I find more details?
A19: See this thread for answers from the design team.

Q20: Regarding Ao's coin being only used once; is that a character can only benefit once, or a soul can only use it once over the course of it's many reincarnations?
A20: The coin itself is taken by whatever power allows you to cheat death, when it is used. You will only be able to use this coin a single time.

Q21: Can Menn of small size ride a Battlecat!?
A21: The rules for mounts are that any rider that is the same size-class as the mount may ride the mount without problem and riders who are one size-class larger, or smaller may also ride a mount. Thus, a medium mount can accommodate Small, Medium, and Large riders. On the starting continent, this means, Hrothi, Neran, Waerd, Janoa, Dras, To'resk, and Brudvir can all ride medium mounts, such as Battlecats.

Q3: What happens when I use Ao's coin when I drown at sea?
A3: You will wash ashore near the last settlement you visited, wherever that may be.

These two FAQs bring up a couple of questions...

Will using Ao's coin result in it being consumed or just render it inert until your next lifetime?

Can Ao's coin be stolen/given away? (I'm guessing yes, but if the coin is not consumed when its effect occurs that would be a bit of a bigger deal).

Thanks.

Unlike the answer to Q2, this answer does not explicitly confirm that Ao's Coin will prevent a "deep water" permadeath. Does it?

Second question: does store credit "count" for a weekly "participation" purchase regarding weekly ingredient rewards?
