Ember Sword Economy Overview Part 1

What is Ember Sword?

Ember Sword is an MMORPG that emphasizes engaging gameplay, featuring fast-paced ARPG/MOBA combat within a persistent fantasy world. The game provides a vibrant ecosystem where players can acquire rare cosmetics, own dynamic land plots, and collect valuable items, all while crafting a landscape that reflects their vision. Blockchain-based ownership enhances the rarity and excitement, empowering players to shape the game.

Players earn collectibles through PvE battles, PvP seasons, and boss challenges. By trading or merging these cosmetics for rarer items, they can showcase their style and skills. Landowners play a crucial role in this evolving world by offering premium services and managing resources, reaping real rewards.

Off-Chain vs. On-Chain

Ember Sword uses both on-chain and off-chain items, maintaining a no-pay-to-win philosophy. This approach supports a player-controlled economy where unique digital items, known as collectibles, play a central role. These collectibles include character and weapon skins, emotes, and land plots, all of which can be owned, traded, and upgraded using the game's currency, $EMBER.

Off-Chain vs On-Chain 

Cosmetic Collectibles

Cosmetic collectibles in Ember Sword allow for player personalization without affecting gameplay balance. These items, which can be earned through gameplay or purchased in the Premium Shop, are immutable and limited in number, ensuring their rarity. Players can merge collectibles to increase their rarity, trade them on secondary markets, or showcase their unique style in the game.

These cosmetics are not only unique but also immutable and limited in number, ensuring their rarity. Whether earned through gameplay or purchased in the Premium Shop, each item is designed to showcase a player's style in Ember Sword’s expansive multiplayer world. Players have full control over their collectibles, with options to merge for upgrades or trade and sell them externally as they choose.

Merging Collectibles

Merging collectibles is a significant feature in Ember Sword. Once players have found four collectibles, they can merge them using a bit of $EMBER to obtain a higher-tier and rarer collectible. Merging collectible items can be done at any time by any player. The four collectibles used in the merge are burned, and the new higher-tier collectible is released, increasing the scarcity and uniqueness of each item in the game. The cost of merging items remains a fixed dollar amount, regardless of the price of $EMBER. The merging system is available to all players, supporting the game’s dynamic economy.

$EMBER: The Core of Ember Sword's Economy

$EMBER is essential for purchasing and enhancing collectibles within Ember Sword. With a fixed supply of 2.5 billion tokens, $EMBER drives the game's cosmetic and economic activities. Players can earn $EMBER through PvE and PvP events, and landowners can generate additional rewards by hosting Premium Shops and facilitating player trades. The distribution of $EMBER is tied to active gameplay, ensuring a balanced economic system.

Dynamic $EMBER Release Model

The dynamic release model of $EMBER ensures a consistent token supply, proportional to the game’s active trading base. As the player base grows, so does the number of collectibles, while the total supply of $EMBER remains fixed. This model supports a robust and sustainable economy within Ember Sword.

Land Ownership and Rewards

Land plots in Ember Sword are limited and valuable. With only 40,000 plots available in the First Nation, Solarwood, landowners gain access to exclusive $EMBER rewards. These rewards come from Premium Shops and Player Trading activities, encouraging land ownership and participation in the game’s economy.

 Key Features of $EMBER

Players owning these plots will be eligible for earning shared $EMBER rewards. Landowners receive rewards for Premium Shops and Player Trading, which are also based on a percentage of the user base.
  • $EMBER can be purchased and used to buy or merge cosmetics at any time. With a fixed supply of 2.5 billion $EMBER tokens, their distribution is tied to active gameplay through PvE and PvP events.
