World of Ether is a decentralized collectible dueling game that lives inside of a browser on the Ethereum Virtual Machine. The game is centered around the collection, breeding, and fighting of monsters. Each monster is stored inside of a contract and referenced by World’s of Ether platform.
Monsters are broken into 4 grades of rarity: common, uncommon, rare, and legendary. These monsters fall into 5 types:
- Sun: Representing light, warmth, flying, and fire.
- Ocean: Representing water, depth, and mystery.
- Life: Representing fertility and vegetation.
- Death: Representing demise, undoing, and finality.
- Astral : Representing intelligence, psychic ability, and the metaphysical.
Initially there will be 200 monsters.
Discovering Monsters in World of Ether
In order to keep the game decentralized it is of utmost importance that the author of the game cannot flood the market with extra monsters, harming the marketplace.
However, because the game may need more monsters in the future, there is a very minimal chance that upon breeding a new species can come into existence. This species would then be added to the list of possible monsters.
Because of this feature, there will eventually be well over 200 monsters. Our servers will hold the artwork for these new monsters, but the battle points, type, and rarity of the new monster will be generated at random through our algorithm, so as to maintain decentralization for the platform.
Battling in World of Ether
Experience is gained from battles. Players gain levels to the max of 50. As the level increases, the player’s chance of breeding rare monsters improves.
Each monster’s strength is measured in battle points. Ex, a particular monster may come in a range of 800 – 1,200. These battle points are used inside of battles to produce a winner. Higher BP increases your probability of winning a battle, but anything can happen.
How To Start Playing
World of Ether runs on ether(ETH). You can purchase ETH directly through MetaMask, or any other exchange. Coinbase is highly recommended if you are purchasing ETH for the first time. If you already have ETH on a personal wallet, you can transfer ETH as needed to your MetaMask wallet address.
There is no direct trading in WoE. The only way to sell etherians, or to obtain other players’ etherians, is to use the marketplace. Eggs will continue to be available in inventory, but prices increase with every egg bought to encourage a thriving market.
You can choose to have an auction increase in price over time, decrease in price over time, or remain a static price. Once the Etherian is put up for auction, it becomes unavailable to use until purchased or the auction is canceled.
