Domain & Settlement Selection has started

By Vye

Hail and well met, Elyrians!

Today we begin one of the most important pre-launch events of our game. Today is when those who have pledged to be responsible for the lands of Elyria can, at last, begin to claim their corner of the map. These hopeful Elyrians have spent countless hours planning. To what liege do they swear fealty? To whom do they invite into their borders as vassals? What tribe do they wish, and their citizens, wish to play? What industry do they hope to develop? And, maybe most importantly, what the heck are they going to name everything?!

As you have already likely seen, Caspian made an update yesterday that detailed some of the technical hurdles we've had in preparing for this event. But even though the D&SS webpage is not yet ready to launch, the event is not being delayed. This first week of the event, when the Kings and Queens of Elyria are choosing their sovereign lands, we will be providing the necessary map information they need to make their decision as a kind of dossier or infographic instead. We've already discussed the process with our 20 monarchs, and they are on board to choose this way.

Our aim is to get the map ready in time for the Dukes and Duchesses to take advantage of it during week 2 of the event. While one less week to browse and plan using the interactive map is universally less preferred than having it, we still want to provide as much information as we can for our royals, courtiers, and mayors. That is why we will be sharing the monarch's selections in the following posts, along with the information sheets they used to make their choices. The first dramatic reveal of the event is the pick order of the monarchs on each server, which will be a surprise to many!

Angelica (NA-W) Kingdom Selection Post

  1. Aranor
  2. Ashland
  3. Valyria
  4. Riftwood
  5. Blackheart
  6. Tyria

Luna (NA-E) Kingdom Selection Post

  1. Vornair
  2. Boardweall
  3. Kairos
  4. Alésia
  5. Fortuna

Selene (EU) Kingdom Selection Post

  1. Demalion
  2. Al'Khezam
  3. Arkadia
  4. Tryggr
  5. Nirath

Oceanus (OCE) Kingdom Selection Post

  1. Lor Voskara
  2. Tylsia
  3. Aequitas
  4. Caprakan

By the end of week 1, all the monarchs will have selected their kingdoms and duchies, so the Dukes and Duchesses coming into week 2 will be primed and ready to go. We expect those posts to see some action during the course of week 1, as well as spin-off discussions in the respective server forums and in Discord. If you had intended to grab some popcorn and watch the map during week 1, you'll want to watch these posts instead!

You will be receiving a PM on your CoE account with your admission time later today, so keep your eyes peeled so you can set your alarm appropriately!

Expect another announcement post when the Domain & Settlement Selection webpage is launched for Week 2, which will include the link. If you need a refresher on the rest of the event, read the initial announcement post or head to our official Discord server and enter the #domain-and-settlement-selection channel.

Pledged to Your Continued Adventures in Life, Both Actual and Fantasy,

D&SS has been delayed, so you can't make your selection yet. It was announced publicly in the Almost But Not Quite Done post.

I read on one of the posts that 'maps will be available to all, not just those who have a claim, on a web app on our website'. I can't seem to find the maps.

I don't actually have a claim, I'm just trying to find the maps.

Zampher - 3 months ago

Currently I believe only kingdom owners can choose. Even so I think there having a glitch. Been days with nothing going on.

Last I heard it'll be more obvious how to choose next week. Hope that helps some

Wienerschnitzel - 3 months ago

Also where will I find the selection map and how do I select. Maybe I’m dumb but still not understanding the selection process

@Wienerschnitzel:

You would first need to select a server. If you were able to select land, but did not select a server before 22APR2019, then you will have to wait until after the 4 weeks for the others to select theirs is over (you will still need to have chosen a server before then.)

Wienerschnitzel - 3 months ago

When is governed selection time am I under counts or mayors?

Valaar - 3 months ago

How much time do we have to pick when our admission time begins until it (presumably) automatically chooses for us?

It won't automatically choose for you. So make sure you choose sometime between your start time and Exposition.

Kerlem - 3 months ago

I feel so Game of Thronsey right now... As a Vornarian, I feel pretty confident of where we'll wind up on Luna, but once we get to the Counts, things'll get really intriguing.

Will the inforgraphic also be available to to lower tiers as well ? wondering which might be best at viewing large amounts of information quickly, and if we see or hear of the interface perhaps it would be more familiar then the map initially till the dukes get a chance to see the map.
