Astral Entities AMA 3/1/22
Where to Watch?
What is Astral Entities?
Astral Entities will be several games all utilize the same NFT's and cohesive lore, and will include games spanning every genre possible by the end of time. Developed by Cryptoreaper and Tanzo, each game will aim to have a different flavor and utilize the NFT's in a fresh way. Each game will seek to appeal to their target audience the best it can while the entire franchise expands and brings new players in. Each game will have it's own user base, but with many connections between both players and game titles.
There are three games currently in development:
Taergyn is like playing Go with D&D inspired Fantasy characters with an array of stats, classes, and an epic depth of lore. This is the flagship game of the series and is expected to launch Q1 2022.
Developed by kiokizz, is a text based adventure on Discord. Alpha testing for the program is live now on the discord server, but there is no cryptocurrency attached yet. This will be the first game released with a goal of Q1 2022.
The Hunter's Guild
The Hunter's Guild will be a Gamified staking game with an emphasis on the Gamified. On timed adventures, you will be forced to make a number of hard decisions that could take twists and turns in this choose your own adventure.
Many, Many more games planned for release down the line with options being developed for developers to create their own unofficial or official games.
Caleb Got his Care Package
Ridiculously close to testing it and pushing it to the live server, but then there was an outage for Kio, the main dev on DA. Hopefully Soon!
Champion Name Plates
Each of the champions will have exclusive name plates, and here are the ones you have so far:
Will the Official Astral Entities website allow for better sorting of our AE cards?
For example: By tier? By Gold Foil?
Or even By Gold Foil and by Tier!
- Would you be open to / what is the likelihood of doing promotional work with other projects to create a dual use NFT, that is, an NFT that could be used by both AE and another project?
It could be difficult, but we would have to have them jump through a lot of hoops to let that happen. They have to fit our stats, lore, and balancing scheme.
- Is there an update on how Alpha packs / Alpha Sets are selling? Also is there a target last date set for them being available?
No date currently, but if I had to guess, we'd plan a last date when the game is released. We have sold over 10% of Alpha Packs and many sets haven't been redeemed yet, so many of those packs will also disappear when and if they do. It seems the most expensive sets are selling the quickest, which is pretty cool.
- When it comes to that value increase: where would developers earn income given it seems that most income for Devs comes from NFT sales?
One way would be to give their games links that will earn them a percentage of each NFT sale, and their game would have to be cohesive with the ingame lore. They could also produce astralite in their games, and they could earn a percentage. Nothing is set in stone, and the main value to outside devs would be to already have access to the stats and programming completed decreasing the amount of Dev time.
A Developer could also find ways to monetize the game through cooldowns or health potions. There are a lot of ways that developers could take advantage of the open use of the NFT's
- Will the cards be removed from the wax wallet, or will there be a database to track which are in use where?
We would prefer a database internally and a timer in each game, so we don't have to hold people's cards. That's a lot of trust that we feel is unnecessary. You already are putting so much trust in us by buying cards without a game yet is enough-- we don't want to require more than that.
- Would you read the NFT itself? Would that be a vulnerability?
That's already public knowledge for anyone who can read blockchain tech, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to use the serial card to their advantage.
- Did you guys decide on a One Year Anniversary date for AE?
Still to be determined.
Where to Buy Packs?
https://www.astralentities.com/shop or on the wax market. Please don't pay more than 6$ while they are still in stock at the shop. Gold Foiled Sets can also be purchased through the Alpha Presale channel on their discord, and they are also for sale on the wax market above official sale price.
Thank you all for spending time with me today. I always love chatting with everyone, so I hope to see you in the comments. I hope to see you again tomorrow for the next pack!!!
