Chronicles of Elyria
This is a game that is still in development, but it has a lot of things that set it appart from any other MMO. Your character ages and eventually die, it is focus on the story, it seems it will have a strong emphasis in RPing, all the content is player created, skill based (both character and player) development, etc. It's a true Sandbox.
One think I want to comment here is that in this game you have to think beyond your character (as they end up dying for real) and focus on your linage and your family. Your character can get married either with another NPCs or PCs, they will have children and when your current character died you will take over of one of your descendants.
I have asked the Developers if same sex marriage were allowed in Elyria and they said that yes. Marriage in one kind of contract in Elyria and has nothing to do with religion. The only restriction is that for obvious reason partners of the same sex can't have children, but they can always hire a surrogate mother/father to have their children.
This is just one of the aspect in this game, everything here seems to be new, or done from a new perspective. If you like MMOs, I think you should check this game out.
So, go to their web, check the developer journals. Interact with the developers, they are very active and talk to us an daily basis.
Oh, and if you join the forums, feel free to use my referal code: 318577, my nickname there is Rhaegys.
See you all in Elyria, I hope!
