From Ryzom Wiki
Elyps (or sometimes elypses) are a role-play term to call your character involvement with other homins. You rise your social credit (gain Elyps) towards others and you can use that reputation (spend Elyps) to get various services from some homins (mostly merchant NPC). It is a form of currency, a role-play alternative to PvP and nation/faction points. It was called Involvement in the past.
How to gain?

RP Tags (roleplay)
For Fyros, Matis, Tryker, Zorai, Kami, Karavan, Marauder and Ranger.
- In order for your character to wear these tags, you must wear an earring jewel and use Elyps to have the Allegory engraved engraved on it by the merchants of your nation or faction.
- Hang or remove the jewel to display or hide the RP tags.
- These tags can only be displayed when you are in PvP (player vs. player) mode (2).
- You can show or hide these tags whenever you want. If you hide them, only the current PvP tag (the one with two crossed swords) will be displayed.

- To better understand how allegories work and where they come from, you can talk to Zin Di-Dao at the Kitin's Lair and start a series of rumours.
- For reasons of role-play logic, these RP tags are only displayed when you have activated your PvP tag. Indeed, your character being considered, RP speaking, as a flesh and blood homin, he cannot be invulnerable to the attacks of other homins. This is not contrary to "pacifist" role-playing (no player in PvP mode is obliged to attack), but simply reflects the physical vulnerability of the character whose role you play. When you display an RP tag (nation, faction, organization, or other), it simply replaces the usual "HRP" PvP tag (the one with two crossed swords). This makes it easy to distinguish between HRP players who simply want to fight in PvP and RP players who accept their character's physical vulnerability.
