In the crypto NFT gaming space some startups are taking a different approach to jumpstarting their communities. A metagame hosted on a discord server where the community has the chance to interact with the developers as they participate in fun activities leading up to the release of the game.
As Solsworn launched its Metagame in the beginning of December 2021, they connected community members to the game by allowing them to decide what actions to take and later on face their consequences. The entire system is handled by bots with manual input of the story and corresponding options. It allows participants to level up and earn metagame currency while weekly NFT giveaways only spice things up even more. Some of the community members wrote entire stories within the fantasy world of the upcoming game.
“Old War Heroes have been called up so The Council can calculate the amount of danger they are encountering. Every man in the room already knows what’s happening in Solvenia’s shadows. The Blight is back! It seems like Solvenia’s people have lived their Fairytale for far too long, giving the enemy enough time to start recovering from defeat. After The council has reached their verdict, our Emperor must inform The Solsworn Knights on what is expected of them. Dark times are ahead. Stockpile your resources. Gather your men.
Community lore contribution that was later turned into an animated story and teaser for the metagame.
Solsworn is an upcoming persistent world NFT Strategy MMORPG built on Solana where players can manage their province and lead their armies to victory through exploration, expansion and conquest across a fantasy world.
How will the game work?
The Sol Emperor rules over the Kingdom of Solvenia where you have been appointed as protector of one of the free provinces. Your duty is to develop your province and ensure prosperity for your people. Your Solsworn Champion will help you govern and expand. Manage citizens. Construct buildings. Gather resources. Train your army. In a never ending struggle for power you will meet other players. Engage in trade with them, establish diplomatic ties and even forge alliances. Just be careful who you call a friend as you all compete for favor with the Sol Emperor. Your journey doesn’t end here. You will embark on expeditions into the unexplored Wild Areas full of strange creatures, dangers and unspeakable riches. Venture further than anyone before and bring Glory to the Empire. Play your way through the strange lands, but as the mysteries unravel, a Dark presence from the first age lingers in the East.
Solsworn will have a play to earn aspect based on its underlying cryptocurrency system.
$SWRN will be an SPL token used within the Solsworn game. Developers believe it is crucial to make sure $SWRN does not introduce a pay to win element to the game.
These are the core functions they plan for $SWRN to serve:
Amass $SWRN to bid on limited Wild Area Land NFTs
Purchase of Vanity Items and flaunting.
Trade $SWRN for Time for those too busy in meat space
Trade $SWRN for various in game resources
WILD AREA NFT LAND
Players will be able to bid for additional land on the outskirts of the empire in order to expand their grasp. Build outposts outside the comfort and safety of their home province to gather valuable and rare resources or to fortify their strategic positions, but should be careful of what lurks in the shadow…
Wild Areas provide access to exclusive land outside the Kingdoms borders. Every Wild Area NFT will grant players access to more valuable resources and provide a strategic advantage. In-game value will drive its value on the open market on Solana.
