Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Give us a brief introduction to the project. What is the essence of Ragna Maple
Ronnie K: Well, Ragnamaple is a metaverse/open world turn-based RPG (Role playing game). First you need to use RMP to purchase 5 characters, then embark on the adventure to fight monsters and ultimately reach the Great Mother Tree, which is the key to saving the Ragnamaple world.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: real adventure😁
Ronnie K: In between the journey, you may capture some monsters to be your companion. Train them and make them fight for you in battles. Different character and monster comes with different skill, so it is best to have a variety of strategies for different enemy or boss encounter.
Some boss yield really good reward = up to 10000 BUSD

Q2 from Telegram User @Ajpaa
Warrior, Archer, Healer, Magician and Thief are the classes of characters on Ragnamaple’s open world gameplay platform. What are the unique abilities of each of these Characters classes? Also what are the new uniqueness of these characters when they gains enough experience points to change job and skills? What are the criteria used for this experience points and what benefits does a player get when the job and skills of his characters get upgraded?
Ronnie K: Wow this is an even longer question that I can’t really answer in details, If not it will end up become an article 😂😂😂

Warrior = tanker/close range combat
Archer = long range/ high physical dps
Marian = elemental/ high magic dps
Healer = support/ anti demon&undead
Thief = agile / high dodge / poison
Ronnie K: When these character gain enough experience points, player may help these character to change class to an advance tier, where new stronger skills will be available
Ronnie K: With stronger skills and stat, the stronger your team and you can beat stronger monsters! Or even take up boss easily and earn more $$$$$$$$$ in the process 🥳

Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Ready to proceed to the next question?
Ronnie K: Welcome Goldy!
Ronnie K: Sure
Q3 from Telegram User @Pavel_Jarosh
Ragnamaple stands to be willing to work on several techniques to ensure the game meets the different needs of the players as play-to earn games are often said to be less pleasing. And one these means is massive reward that is awaiting everyone who joins. Could you share more details regarding your rewarding system? Does it only include financial rewards or game perks such as additional equipment for heroes, or access to VIP leagues? Thank you!
Ronnie K: Yes, not only the rewards come in the form of real world money, rare weapons and equipments will be available to those who play hard too!
Ronnie K: In some of the event, for example the $10000 BUSD boss
Ronnie K: And why BUSD and not RMP you may ask? Because we do not intend to give out massive reward in native token which will hurt the pricing of our token. We need to make sure that the token price is stable so that users and investors are happy to stay with us.
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: it’s really generous😁
Jonah 🏅🎹: This is a great Initiative
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: this is a smart move on your part😊
Ronnie K: In order to achieve mass adoption in the shortest time, $ reward is most effecient, and we have a mechanism to ensure sustainability of these rewarding system
Ronnie K: Which will involve our RagnaVault and NFT sales that helps in future game development and rewards giveaway
Ronnie K: We urge investors to look into our whitepaper to understand more about how our tokenomic works
Ronnie K: http://RagnaMaple.gitbook.io/ragnamaple/
Ronnie K: Done
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thank you very much for the information about your tokenomics.😊
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: It was detailed enough. I suggest jumping to the next question😁
Q4 from Telegram User @iceVermithraxx
I Understood there are 3 categories of NFT’s items in your platform, NFT loot box, NFT land and NFT characters,I would love to know main the role of each of these NFts item.? how can a user own An NFT land? What qualifies a user to be able to own An NFT land? Also Ragnamaple is a play to earn game, do you have maximum number of token a user can earn per day? Also I understand you have two in game currency Zeny and zRMP,why have two in game currency, can these currencies be converted to each other? What are the usecases of these two currencies?
Ronnie K: NFT loot box = bundle of character + weapon/equipment/accessories/item
NFT land = farm and mine (to mine ore for weapon and equipment upgrades)
NFT character = character with random stronger stat
Ronnie K: NFT land will need further elaboration.
Player or investor can buy a land plot which will be part of the metaverse implementation, where owner can tax miner for extracting ores from their land, or tax vegetation from the farm other players harvested
Ronnie K: Farm ingredients are items that will be needed in alchemy, potion creation and so on.
Ronnie K: While different ores are needed to fulfill certain weapon upgrades
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: The land will be sold in packs. As far as I understand. What’s the planned starting price?
Ronnie K: Yes we do have maximum token a player can earn per day. But players are always free to continue roaming the continent to fight monsters or even fishing or mining to earn more ingredients, but there is a catch, once the limit is reach, the drop rate for all the activities will drop significantly
Ronnie K: The details of land pricing will only be revealed in December
Jonah 🏅🎹: What is this maximum number set at?
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: I will wait for the news. 😊
Ronnie K: Yes, there is 2 in-game currency:
zRMP = more to usage in marketplace and RagnaDex, in which users need to burn RMP (and remove it from the circulation) to convert it to zRMP.
Why doing so? Because you can then use zRMP to entitle up to 20% discount on items selling in the marketplace
Ronnie K: Zeny = standard in-game currency where players can earn from killing monsters, completing daily task and so on.
Player can convert Zeny to RMP and cash out to real world money.
In short, zeny is the main in-game currency that will be needed for most trading activities
Ronnie K: Done
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for your great answers 😃
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Ready to proceed to the next question? Or want to add something?
Ronnie K: Sure next question please
Q5 from Telegram user @jodasf
I read that Ragnamaple, players travel across continents to fight and collect monsters with great abilities to trade with other players in an open world turn based adventure role playing game built on Binance Smart Chain. so firstly could you tell us, how many types of monsters there are, how many abilities each of them can have and how they differ from each other and secondly and lastly, could you tell us, how many roles there are, what each role depends on, and what does it mean that they are turn based?
Ronnie K: There are more than 274+ monsters available at first (and more to come)
Each monster come with 2–3 skills, they have skills that compliment each other, or even very effective against some other monsters.
Ronnie K: Player can enlist captured monster into the team and use them in different situation, this will help players in some difficult gameplay when human characters won’t be able to perform their best
Ronnie K: For example, there are some bosses that are weak against certain skill, and player will want to capture these monsters to help in the boss fight.
With this system, the game will end up with robust trading of monsters in between players to achieve different goals.
Ronnie K: Done
Jonah 🏅🎹: It’s interesting how you’ve designed this to work
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: when is the Marketplace planned?
Ronnie K: Marketplace will have to launch together with the game
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for your answers ☺️
Ronnie K: As players will need a venue to trade their nfts
Ronnie K: This sticker was supposed to show the wolverine is weak against green slime
Ronnie K: It will slow down wolverine dodge rate, which end up player can defeat this boss with ease
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: i dream to play it😁
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Thanks for your answers
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: Let’s proceed to the next question
Ronnie K: Sure
Q6 from Telegram user @Cheriemike
You aspire to build a play-to-earn community yield guild through the process of lending in-game assets, introducing forums for players , creating scholarship programs and other activities that benefit the community.So when will all of them be featured on your platform and what do you mean by introducing forum for players?I am very much interested in the scholarship program you will introduce to users in your community,at what specify time will this scholarship program start?Can you tell us more about this scholarship program and what it entails?Will it be open for everyone to attend or will be open to those who hold large amount of $RMP? Will there be any form of KYC to join in your scholarship program Thanks
Ronnie K: In the initial stage, we will be creating the yield guild and scholarship program by having partnership with existing guild in other famous games in this industry ( I believe you guys know what game it is ), we have already received many application for the collaboration, which is a good start to ensure some new players are able to play the game without using their own money from the start
Ronnie K: Player definitely will not need to hold large quantity of $RMP in order to receive the scholarship, as for KYC or not, it really depends on each entities, which we are trying to not interrupt in the process. After all this is a community based project
Gold Rocket | Satoshi Club: It’s great that you give a chance to all players in any pocket.

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community
Q1 From telegram User @Ajpaa
Hello Kim Woo-Ming
What are the unique features that distinguishes your platform and gives you competitive advantage over other gaming platforms like StarMon and Axie Infinity?
Ronnie K: If you follow closely about the feedback from other play-2-earn community, reward is the biggest concern at the moment, that is why our approach is to give out massive reward in a sustainable way.
Through the Ragnavault, burning mechanism and NFT sales which you can refer to in our whitepaper.
Q2 From telegram User @AugusS7
It strikes me that they say “tactically challenge your opponents in PvP”, but could you really tell us what strategies can be used in these battles? Will they be referred only depending on the character that the player and his competitor have? Or will there be other factors to consider?
Ronnie K: Players will be able to climb the leader board and earn massive reward the better they perform.
And besides referring to each team member formation, skill selection also play a vital role as each character is only able to equip with 3 skills at one time. Other factor such as different character stat also will affect the result of the pvp.
Q3 From telegram User @Xusuo
im really excited with game Ragna Maple, its looks fantastic game. so where do i possible to buy the NFT and $RMP token ? how about presale and public sale?
Ronnie K: The first round public investors are able to buy RMP is through the upcoming 11th Nov 2021 12pm UTC community presale, where the price per token will be set at $0.01.
The second round investor can purchase more RMP will be through the multi-IDO happening this end of November/beginning of December. In which the price is definitely more expensive compare to our presale.
Q4 From telegram User @Rakshhitx5
What does the Ragnamaple word means?

Whats the difference between the various jobs beginner, intermediate and advanced and if we are beginners how can we get the upgrade ?
Ronnie K: The difference will be stronger character with more powerful skill in higher tier.
You may change the job class of your character after you have train them to certain level, for higher tier, certain condition has to be met to be able to change job to even higher tier, such as completing certain mission to unlock that feature.
Q7 From telegram User

While android version will be ready in February or March 2022
Q8 From telegram User @hansoyeon

Ronnie K: Yes these monsters are all in the form of NFT once captured.
You can train the monster to higher level and evolve them to even stronger form, similar to the feature of Pokemon.
Q9 From telegram User @Nonerlike
Can I earn a passive income from $RMP? Are there any staking options available for this?? What will be the benefit for holding tokens in long run?
Ronnie K: Well well, there are a lot of benefits for staking RMP, which will be available in december 2021.
Benefit of staking RMP:
1. Earn RMP reward
2. Earn 100% revenue sharing from the fee of RagnaDex and marketplace
3. To be eligible to the upcoming NFT sales
4. Participate in the governance of the game
5. Higher chance of getting rare items in the gameplay
Q10 From telegram User @centoscu
I’m thinking of joining and investing the Ragna Maple project but I’m wondering if it might be better for me to buy and hold the token for a long time or just sell after the next hype so could you please tell me why should I be a holdler?
Ronnie K: This is an interesting question, some of our token features are inspired by Iluvium, in which those who holds and staked the token have end up earning more than x20 in just few months.
We won’t be able to give you the answer, as you are always responsible for your investment decision.
But we can just tell you that, there will only be more utility for $RMP in the coming months, which is part of the reason the team and private sale investors are comfortable with longer vesting period. Because they have great confident in thid project.
