Exposition Access is a 3 month period that will occur after the Alpha and Beta stages of Chronicles of Elyria and acts as a starting point for the world.
During this time, players who have purchased eligible pledge/kickstarter packages will be able to access the world of Elyria and start building up settlements, kickstart the economy and further develop upon the game's lore.
The 3 month Exposition period will be split up into 3 phases:
- Phase 1 - The first phase will have a main focus on building and developing settlements within the world. During this time, players will not be able to commit any crimes such as PVP of stealing.
- Phase 2 - Carrying on from Phase 1, the main focus remains, although PVP and stealing will be activated. However, PVP can only be carried out to Incapacitate an opposing player, rather than completing a Coup De Grace (killing them fully by separating the soul from their body).
- Phase 3 - The third phase fully opens PVP, so completing a Coup De Grace will be possible, although still illegal without a legal cause to do so.
Each phase is not limited to a 1-month period and the development team may reduce an individual or all phases depending upon how quickly players develop within the world and economy.
