Hhis Grace the Duke of the Zabi Demesne regrets to announce the death of Lord Sasro Zabi, called the Unifier, previous Duke of the Zabi Demesne. Lord Sasro with his dying words commended the souls of his enemies to Daemon’s light, asked forgiveness for his sins and praised the just rule and good governance of King Dragor.

Those assembled stood at attention in the grand hall, awaiting the arrival of Duke Usifan, who had called his loyal subjects to him before he traveled to advise King Dragor on matter of national interest. 

A sudden rustle at the side of the room attracted the attention of all within. Duke Usifan, accompanied by his personal guard, appeared, clad in his official armor and on his shoulder was fastened the pin of his CoA.

Mmy dearest people, loyal subjects and friends,

We, Al-Qaum, value our land, the fertility of the soil and the bounty of the seas and river. We are blessed by the Light and are loyal to Daemon and have been blessed accordingly.

I am summoned to the capital of our liege lord, King Dragor of Nirath, whose bounty has been shared by all Dilmunia. We have benefitted from his gifts of bread and water when we swore allegiance, and by the peace and prosperity that followed. Who amongst us here has not seen his or her fortune increase these past years?”

“You can sit there all day, it won’t grow any faster”.

Hhis mother had never entertained his hobbies. To think she’d begin to any time soon was nothing short of quixotic. But Gekon didn’t mind. He’d sit on the same crumbling boulder as he always did, and stare at those peas until they were persuaded to grow, if he had to. There was nothing else to do anyway, and peas could be unthinkably stubborn. That year had been a particularly difficult one for a novice herbalist so far; Gekon’s rather rebellious pet Conifer rat had already managed to eat every single flower bud in the garden. His mother’s recipes had all threatened to incorporate Conifer rat meat the very same day and the munching menace had disappeared ever since. On top of that, it was as if every last drop of hydration had been sapped from the soils that now appeared a hopeless grey under the everlasting sun. The wheat, tomatoes and carrots had all perished; it was almost a certainty that these peas would not enjoy any other fate.

Iit has been a while since the last King’s Tournament was held, but lo and behold! Albeit no date has been set yet, our glorious King Dragor has decreed that new tournaments are to be held. So train your mounts and sharpen your blades, because the warbands are to meet on the battlefield once again. Gold and glory to the victors!

Tterra Magna, EU’s only fine arts guild, is now taking a limited number of pre-game commissions that will be completed upon exposition or game launch depending on request. The guild specialises in high-value artworks in the fields of glassware, jewelry, tailoring, artistry and floral artistry. Item quality is fashioned to noble and aristocratic use, and as such, Terra Magna has received numerous commissions already, from counts, dukes, and religious figureheads within Nirath. Please contact Terra Magna on their private Discord for consultation here: https://discord.gg/012o18UYlao2RiUQ5

Aas our kingdom continues to grow and expand we’ve seen an influx of  new citizens from all over the world, but none quite as noticeably as our Spanish members. They continue to be an important part of our community and make up a large proportion of our population.

As is Dragor’s wish, Nirath is continuously being shaped to benefit everyone that wishes to settle within it, and nothing exemplifies that ethos more than the development of what has become an entirely Spanish community within our own.

Greetings, Nirathii.

Hhere we go again with another entry of mine! This one is highly sought after though because it hopefully will answer some of the questions that I keep getting hammered with. Why do we have no branches? Why there is no apparent structure within the Kingdom? HOW CAN I HOLD MAXIMUM POWER, MY LORD?! Well, that’s all good and well. Because now you might figure it out, at least I hope. Also do keep in mind, while reading this, most of the things said below are taking into account that the kingdom contains a large amount of people, So it does not make much sense if you think of us as a 50 man organization, or even a 100. (It is advised to read my previous entry, A King’s Dream, as I tackled the matter of numbers and population).

Greetings, Nirathii!

Ii believe today you are in luck, (not really, just Thor hounding my arse) because I will be making a second post! I am sure you are like… whaaat a second post in one day?! Yep, I know!

This time I will be talking about my dream, and not in the sense of a glorious life goal kind of dream, but a dream that seems to be quite achievable, especially with your help, my beloved citizens, honest to god peasants, frisky nobles and evil Dukes. But before we do that, I’ll have to address a few things. I do understand there is a lack of information in the matters of structure of the kingdom, lack of named branches, and what do we stand for? Well, this post might just tell you what we do actually stand for, I at least hope so, because it’s more of dotting a journal than clarifying anything, but then again there is some sort of a purpose behind this lack of information, or some which might even call lack of plans. So here goes nothing! Continue Reading →

Dear, Nirathii.

Ssince this is my first post on the herald, I would like to welcome you all to the glorious kingdom of Nirath; a kingdom that is made to serve you and a proud home for all of us in the world of Elyria.

We are only at the beginning of our journey, and in the process of building what I hope to be an amazing place for the community. Nirath is not a guild, nor is it an organization. It is more than that. It is a gathering of like minded players and home to all of us, in preparation for whenever the world of Elyria opens it’s gates. I hope that this acts as a platform for players to meet, connect and organize their plans for Elyria, and at the same time grow the kingdom so that it may become an ideal location for their gaming experience for years to come. I believe this desire is shared with many members of our community. If Chronicles of Elyria delivers it’s promised potential, we could see tens of thousands of players on the same servers, and thousands of players in the kingdom of Nirath. I do believe the community will be larger than ever, especially when COE launches. Many will join us before then, and much more after. So I hope that we can establish the best place we can for all of those that are here today, and all of those that will come in the future.
