The Chronicles of Lordaeron is now at Rest
After two years of Roleplay, the Guild has reached an untenable situation. Lack of interest has slowly declined my personal enthusiasm to produce content, write stories, and DM for the members. Lack of respect, heavy criticism and what some might call elistist views also played their part.
The Guild may return in the future. For now, you can still view the Forum post below:
If you want to listen to Music with this Topic:
Lordaeron, once Azeroth's mightiest human nation, rests in its solemn ruin. It's forests and fields, towns and cities, crawling with
undeath and decay. The march of the Scourge has halted, the fires of the legion put out. Those who remain squabble aimlessly for what remains. Shall you join them, or forge your own path?
Chronicles of Lordaeron is a Survival/Story RPG Phase which is set in the Vanilla WoW Time Period. The Role Playing Game System means all actions are decided by rolls, and stats are assigned to each player and creature in the phase to decide how they roll. Balancing out the experience and creating fairness.
To keep the Roleplay unpredictable and fresh, we have introduced some of our own Lore. This Extended lore aims to extend on the Blizzard Canon and does not directly conflict with it. If your a Lore wiz, have no fear. This is the WoW you know and love, but also made exciting, with the new stories, characters and locations that aim to make the experience fresh and mysterious, while not feeling out of place.
Occasionally we will host Public 'Survivor Hosts'. In the host, players must learn to survive as a team....or they shall die divided. Only those that survive are given the opportunity to progress and join in on the greater story...think you have what it takes?
Powerful and Exotic characters will be denied, and your equipment stripped from you before you begin your run as a survivor, but do not be concerned. Players are given 100 'Soul Coins' before each run, which they use to purchase any items they wish to start off with when the run begins. These hosts can range from an hour to 6 hours, and will test both you both in the game and out of it.
If you manage to Survive your ordeal and make it to a Faction, you may be given the option to join them. Once you join them you will be decked out with their uniform, along with being able to participate in the Story Hosts related to that faction. You will also be invited to join our Discord and ingame Guild!
Story Hosts are Guild Member only hosts associated with each Faction in the phase. In them, we explore the Stories of the Factions themselves, taking on challenging foes and unlocking the mysteries of Lordaeron itself. As you play, your characters IC rank and stats will improve, but be warned. Threats are real, and one wrong step in these dangerous lands may get your character Killed! Just like in a Survivor Run.
If you are able to survive a survivor run, and are not a rude or toxic person, you will be invited to join us and participate in Story Hosts! As far as Staff go, we do not recruit Staff. I pick loyal, trusted existing members and promote them when they show they have the capacity to do it. In this sense, all our Staff are well seasoned, experienced and good people.
To create the most Immersive experience possible, we have spent a great deal of time building our phase. As of writing the phase currently boasts 39'576 Gobjects and 7'781 NPC's. Spanning all of Lordaeron as we can, though there is still much work to be done..
Tirisfal Glades: 100%
Western Plaguelands: 90%
Eastern Plaguelands: 75%
Silverpine Forest: 40%
Alterac Mountains: 100%
Hillsbrad Foothills: 100%
To further enhance the experience, I have personally created a Guild Path, 'The Virgil Patch'.
It changes minor and major things in the game, most notable of which is the new login screen, removal of Cataclysm Forsaken objects, reskinned banners, and modified loading screens. The Patch is mostly optional, but is very much worth downloading once you're a member.
We use Discord to coordinate Guild Hosts, announce when we do Survivor Runs, Discuss Lore, and generally chat. There is a lot of memes as well...maybe too many memes.....
I invite anyone to join if they are interested in Chronicles. You can ask us questions, meet the Staff and get informed when we are doing our hosts.
