1. Illuvium — Fight For Eth

Welcome to the world of Illuvium. A shattered land of beauty and wonder. Travel the vast and varied landscape hunting dangerous beasts, then capture them to battle in the arenas or trade them via the Illuvials exchange.

Illuvium is a decentralized, NFT collection and auto battler game built on the Ethereum network. Integrated with the hyper-scalable Immutable-X L2 solution, players of Illuvium gain access to zero gas fees for minting or exchanging of assets as well as sub-second transaction times, all with user maintained custody.

An entire world of iconic, collectable NFT characters designed by some of the world’s most talented artists is at your fingertips. Look out for ultra-rare Illuvials made with never-before-seen 4D holographic shading techniques. Illuvium offers its community a unique opportunity to collect, trade, battle, and earn rare in game assets.

In addition, DeFi staking mechanisms allow for fees earned within the game to be paid out to staked token holders in $ILV in exchange for providing liquidity and to further distribute sources of liquidity of $ILV and therefore governance of the Illuvium community*.(*There are risks associated with DeFi, particularly staking and smart contract risk, and contract configurations are being developed continuously and subject to change and sentiment expressed by the Illuvium community).

Founding Illuvium DAO contributors, Kieran & Aaron Warwick are the younger brothers of Synthetix founder, Kain Warwick and combined offer a diverse set of skills in the gaming and crypto space.

The Illuvium token genesis event will take place late Q1 2021 with more details to follow shortly.

The World of Illuvium

Game Introduction

Illuvium is an open world narrative driven exploration game. A unique blend of sci-fi and fantasy, you travel from region to region battling and capturing Illuvials, then using them as part of your assembled team.

It combines elements of traditional RPG collection games with fight mechanics seen in the popular Auto Battler genre. Both casual and immersive, players can spend as much or as little time as they wish. Success relies on the creation of a strategically sound and diverse team.

There are larger mysteries to the world that will be discovered over time, both by the individual player and the community as a whole. It is planned as the launchpad for a series of titles that span a number of genres, each tied to the fundamental game asset: the Illuvials NFT.

Illuvial Evolution

What are Illuvials?

The true nature of Illuvials is not fully understood, but what is known is they are deity-like creatures that roam a broken planet. Over time they grow and evolve, taking on new, more powerful forms. Each Illuvial has an affinity for certain elements in the world around them, making them more powerful in some situations than others. As such you are rewarded when you add Illuvials that leverage the strengths of your existing team.

Some Illuvials are more common than others, with the rarest almost never being seen, let alone captured. The power of Illuvials also varies, and is loosely related to their rarity. If you manage to defeat them in battle, you can collect them in Shards stored on the blockchain. If you don’t have much time to play, but still want a powerful deck, then head to the Exchange where you can purchase Illuvials from other players. Keep an eye out for rare Shiny, Gold, or Holographic captures. These are far less common and far more valuable.

The first game will introduce a number of regions that will expand over time, each with different biodiversity.

What will you choose? Will you dominate in the Arenas with tactical prowess, or will you build a collection that is the envy of all others? Or will you solve the biggest mystery of all; What is Illuvium?

Stay tuned for further communications.
