The Chronicle was an in-development fantasy MMORPG from Rapid Reality and MMOCenter.com. Set to feature an ambitious nine races and 27 sub-races, the game touted unique combinations in character customization, wanting to give players the opportunity to be identified by look and not merely a tag over their heads. There was a skill-based leveling system, where players could shape their characters as they wanted, free from rigid classes.
The game's story involved the near extermination of the population through the spell of a great, greedy wizard that decimated the land. Each race's struggle to recover, gain strength, and retake their land was the premise. PvP content was to be available in some form at each level, and the game featured permadeath rules. The way this was handled was via a "Death Realm," an instanced purgatory-type location where players could fight alone to either save their souls or lose their characters. The Chronicle was cancelled in 2006.
