WHAT IS THE ANCIENT HARDWARE?

The Ancient Hardware is a community-driven, play-to-earn roleplaying game on the metaverse with an emphasis on a loot economy, creator rewards, derivatives, IRL events, asset-backed incentives, and humanitarian efforts. The 10000 initial NFTs created will serve as membership tickets, our algorithm determines to price and what loot is allocated to each character’s stash — through this list, each character will be able to participate in item specific events, collect rewards for holding, access events in real life and receive more NFTs.

WHO ARE THE ANCIENT ONES?

The Ancient Hardware

Esowood a quiet small fishing kingdom located on the southernmost region of the Rose Coast comes alive in the year 1420 DR, whilst most of the strong are off fighting in a war with the nearby floating city of Xod — the remaining people in the kingdom starve and struggle to make ends meet; trade has slowed to a halt as a result of the devastating conflict.

All of a sudden a myriad mystics all hailing from different races and schools of magic arrived, some were there to help the people of Esowood in the fight against the Shadow Worshipers in their floating castle, some were there to help the invaders from Xod, and some Mystics simply came for the money and the fame. The economy slowly starts to recover as the Mystics trade in loot from their travels in Esowood for copper, gold, platinum, electrum, and silver in order to wreathe themselves in finery, buy exotic pets or improve their arsenals.

ALIGNMENTS

#????

Upon the official launch of The Ancient Hardware, each avatar will be afforded artifacts in their inventory and one unique item that signifies their alignment. While Mystics are self-serving beings they tend to work together for common goals whether it be money, efficiency, or power - they select their companions by exchanging these virtue artifacts that allow them to witness each other’s true alignment.

Alignment Energy

The alignments are as follows:

* Lawful good

* Good

* Unaligned

* Evil

* Chaotic evil

Some characters may identify as clerics or chosen and their alignment will fall under their patron deity. Their virtue artifact will be blessed by this divine being and contain its essence.

GOBLIN SALVAGE REPO

Mystics, or more often than not - their usually Goblinoid familiars venture into the enchanting, tangled woods that surround Esowood keep in search of treasure. Scouring battlefields, ancient grottoes, ambushed caravans, and dragon hordes, mystics are able to execute these missions and add to their wealth. These items can be sold, kept, used as decoration, saved for use

in-game, and in some cases redeemed IRL.

RARITY

​☆☆☆☆☆

An avatar's rarity is defined by the value of salvage items they hold. Rarity is weighed on a scale of 1-5.
