* MassiveRaceSelection: There are twelve Tribes, human subspecies that act as races, to choose from, each with their own culture and traits: the [[HumansByAnyOtherName Neran]], [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Hrothi]], Brudvir, [[OurGnomesAreWeirder Kypiq]], [[OurElvesAreBetter Janoa]], [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette Dras]], [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals The Waerd]], To'resk, Mydarri, Owem, Erishé, and [[OurGiantsAreBigger Yoru]]. However, the last four Tribes will not be found on the starting continent and will have to discover or be discovered by the players before characters using them could be made.

''Chronicles of Elyria'' is a VaporWare fantasy MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRoleplayingGame (Marketed as a 'MEOW' or Multiplayer Evolving Online World) developed by Soulbound Studios - though for vaporware, the developers are being awfully up-front with updates and information. Initially announced in late 2014, the development team began a successful Kickstarter that ended on June 3rd, 2016, and can be found [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/soulboundstudnowios/chronicles-of-elyria-epic-story-mmorpg-with-aging here]]. Pledges continued through an online store that the developers set up, and Chronicles of Elyria has so far raised more than 7.9 million dollars in total. Current estimates have the full game being released before the Sun becomes a red giant. So far, the starting kingdoms and duchys have been selected, with initial county and settlement selection completed early October 2019. The game is now in pre-Alpha testing.

-->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!

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedMeme: A common joke/meme on the forums was about the elusive purebread horse (not a typo). Soulbound apparently noticed this and for their 2019 Kickstarterversary gave everyone who had bought a package before September 2018 one free purebread horse, complete with food puns, especially of the sandwich variety.

The game world's starting continent or archipelago will be hundreds of kilometers in length and width, featuring fully-fleshed out ecosystems and biomes that can change due to over-exploitation. The world is populated by twelve Tribes, divergent human subspecies that originated from the evolutionary pressures of the biome that they made home. While some Tribes are incarnations of standard fantasy races such as dwarves, gnomes, etc., others are unique to the game.
