The Lore of VulcanVerse- The Mountains of Boreas
Exploring the Frozen Land of the North Wind. — The world of VulcanVerse — the MMORPG itself and the ecosystem of other games based in the same fantasy Greco-Roman era, is anchored by the lore as written by award winning fantasy authors Jamie Thomson and Dave Morris. As well as the lore underpinning the games, players can delve in further by reading the four VulcanVerse gamebooks, each set in one of VulcanVerse’s quadrants — with a fifth book on the way set in Vulcan’s home, the central Vulcan City. In our recent podcast, Vulcan Studios art and design team members Kimon and Rene discussed how the lore influences all of VulcanVerse’s design — from concept art to complete 3D assets. Following on from our introduction to the lore, we’re now arriving in the frozen plateau quadrant known as the Mountains of Boreas.. The first thing a visitor to Boreas would notice is that it’s high up. In fact, it’s at the same level as the fortified Vulcan City itself, the only quadrant to be so. The outer edge of Boreas is surrounded by mountains with the inner area a mixture of forests, caves and tundra. A rocky cliff face stands to the eastern extent of the land, where Boreas gives way to the Gardens of Arcadia. To the south, another cliff exists with an even deeper drop down into the depths of the Underworld of Hades. Today, the human inhabitants are busy building on their land but Boreas wasn’t always ...
The Lore of VulcanVerse- An Introduction
Forged By A God, Owned By The Players. — Many of you are familiar with VulcanVerse, our burgeoning blockchain MMORPG. But do you ever question how it got there, this strange island separated into quadrants populated with mythical creatures, overlooked by a central fortified city positioned high on a rocky outcrop? It didn’t appear like this by chance — VulcanVerse was Vulcan Forged.. — In The Beginning. — The focus of humanity has shifted away from religion, away from the old ways, the deities our ancestors worshiped are often nothing more than distant memories, words in faded books on dusty shelves. Many people worship at a new alter, that of technology, science. But one god in particular, he who gifted humanity technology — the god of invention, the divine metalsmith — Vulcan, refused to fade into the realms of ancient myth.“Hear my words, mortal kind! The old myths are dying. We Gods fade from the world, as mankind turns to their machines, their magic-killing science, their virtual worlds, filled with new gods and monsters. They believe that they do not need us any more and we are forgotten. The old myths are dying…We sleep. We dream. We fade into eternity.But I, Vulcan, the god they once entreated to gift them their machines, their science, their god-forged weapons, will not go quietly. No, I will embrace their new myths, their invisible worlds, their gods who speak in code of ...

You will be able to create your own MetaScapes and level them up with $PYR. Th...
Deck Building 101: Berserk
Learn what goes into building a great competitive deck!. — One of the most important arts to master in any CCG is that of deck building. A well-built deck can do a lot with a little, and your win rate (and general enjoyment) can climb exponentially by making small improvements to your deck. It doesn’t have to break the bank either! Berserk is still expanding and the card library is a little limited right now – but more cards are coming every season. With more variety, more styles of play will become viable. Getting a handle on some of the basic concepts early on can pay massive dividends in future seasons! In this article we’re going to outline some basic tips for deck building. We’ll go over some of the questions you need to ask yourself when designing a deck, and what to look out for when playing to help improve your deck. We’ve also pulled together a couple example builds to help give you some inspiration, ranging from totally F2P up to full-on whale level! — Deck Building Background Theory - At a very basic level, any deck will typically fall into one of four high-level categories known as archetypes. These are based on its play style and victory conditions. The main archetypes are: · Aggro · Control · Midrange · Combo But what do these mean exactly? Aggro (Aggressive): This archetype is about hitting hard and hitting fast. If you haven’t won by Turn 6, you’ve probably lost. Typically sacr...

Discussions took place related to Cedalions and the possibility of Vulcanite and land pools, to ensure fairness and greater acknowledgement and interaction with guilds.

10 Reasons To Mint Your NFTs On Elysium
Low Cost, Easy, Exclusive Extras, Community. We Break It Down For You. — We want you to create and mint your NFT on Elysium. Here are just 10 of the reasons to do so! — 1. We’re An Eco-Friendly Blockchain. — Of all the reasons to mint your NFT on Elysium, this one is one of the most important. A huge turn-off for many people when it comes to NFTs and blockchain is the sheer amount of energy required for blockchain transactions — including minting NFTs. If you mint your NFT on Elysium, you can rest easy. We understand these concerns surrounding blockchain and the environment. Blockchain can be an energy-intensive resource consumer. Well we care about the environment — Elysium is a carbon-neutral blockchain, planting trees on 70,000 acres of land. How does this work? The gas fee from Elysium transactions will be used to plant tokenized trees and offset all CO2 emitted by the blockchain. Yes, we’re planting forests; 50,000 ‘blockchain monitored’ trees in Spain is the start of this offset. The trees will absorb 2.5 million kilograms of CO2 every year, ensuring that transactions, NFT minting, staking solutions and other on-chain operations are carbon-neutral. — 2. Mint With Either LAVA or PYR. — Yes, you heard it right, you can mint with either $LAVA or $PYR. And using ElysiumSwap you can convert many tokens to $LAVA or $PYR enabling you to forge your own NFT collection. —...

|Goons of Balatroon Introduces Fun Play-to-Earn Trading Card Metaverse
Blockchain is no doubt revolutionizing the gaming industry. Today, concepts such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), play-to-earn (P2E), and metaverse have garnered interest from mainstream gamers and institutional investors.
In the past, gamers spent their time and money playing games and purchasing in-game assets without getting any monetary rewards in return. But with blockchain gaming, everyone has the opportunity to earn passive income while having fun.
However, in recent times, P2E games have lost their fun as the potential of earning incentives has become the major reason for playing them. The Goons of Balatroon promises to be different, and it is preparing to launch a “fun first” play-to-earn game for every gamer.
About Goons of Balatroon
The Goons of Balatroon (GOB) is a hybrid metaverse project with a 2D/3D interface. It offers users access to a free-to-play/earn blockchain game that infuses trading card strategies and land ownership. GOB promises to bring players 'fun first,' then earning opportunities.
The GOB game is being built with Unity and the Ethereum blockchain and Immutable X Layer 2 solution to support the NFTs it offers. The game allows players to own and control in-game NFTs required for game functions. These NFT rewards create room for more earning opportunities and can be traded on secondary NFT marketplaces.
The game integrates functional NFTs into its platform to improve gameplay and boost engagement. These assets are not prerequisites for jo...
|Goons of Balatroon (GOB) Raises $2.46M To Craft A Unique Free-to-Play-to...
Goons of Balatroon, a 2D/3D hybrid metaverse featuring Play 2 Earn card strategy gaming and land ownership built within the Elysium ecosystem, has just closed their most recent funding round with $2.46M in seed and private financing. The funding included backers such as Merit Circle, Jun Capital, Vulcan Forged, Faculty Group, Maven Capital, and Bullperks, alongside a handful of founders of companies including the HUSL, Lovelace and Rarestone Capital. The flagship product, a Trading Card Game (TCG), is unique in its use of complex element-tile strategies, wacky characters, and deep gameplay mechanics, never before seen in the P2E environment. Alongside this project, GOB is working on a land battler game that will also play a major part in the GOB ecosystem.
Goons of Balatroon Co-Founder, Mark says, “With the recent surge in play to earn games, we see an increased focus on the ‘earn’ function, and while this is absolutely an aspect of our environment, we believe a focus on making the game fun to play, first, is of utmost importance.”
The project boasts some notable names in its collection of partners. Vulcan Forged and Merit Circle have both put a lot of effort into the project, alongside The HUSL, Lovelace, Unizen, GSR Capital, MEXC, Synaps, Skyvision Capital, PlayNity, and ImmutableX. Vulcan Forged and Merit Circle both have advisors helping the project reach fruition. Experienced partnership goes a long way towards turning this vision into reality.
