Dying is a Natural Part of Life.
What larger story you might think?... Every character is important, no matter what role you choose to play. Everything you do is strictly skill-based. Since there are no classes in Chronicles of Elyria, this means you have the ability to be whoever, and whatever you want! For example, you could be a cartographer and make maps of yet unexplored regions, or even explored ones. Be careful though when going out, as venturing far from the city or town might present unforeseen dangers that may be too much to handle without help from someone who's trained in the art of combat; but if you think exploring is not for you, don't worry. You can be whatever you want, a blacksmith, musician, merchant, even a King or a Queen! This is where your personal skill comes in. Will you be able to climb the Social/Political ladder to get way up there? On the other hand, if you're clever enough and a deviant, you can impersonate other players and steal their identities and even frame them for
Player driven story.
