An evil force has besieged the Metaverse

A rift to the astral plane has opened in the metaverse. Witnesses reported seeing monsters emerging from rifts, armed with weapons beyond our world – monstrosities capable of crushing entire cities and laying waste to all inhabitants within. Wielding astral weapons, these monsters can carve an adept swordsman in twain. Bards sing of grandmasters slaying some of these monsters… “Only through coy, one must trick the monsters, and use their own weapons against them,” a legend sang in taverns far and wide. Will you drink in the taverns and celebrate the end of days – or will you fight? The call is yours to answer.

Metagates-Characters

The Call

Forces across the metaverse are massing – there is a revolution in the works. Astral materials are being gathered in order to arm the townspeople against their treacherous encampment. When chaos rules supreme, it is up to the courageous to answer the call and banish the monsters and lay waste to the rift. Someone must restore balance to the metaverse. Will it be you?

The Astral

Rifts have been spawning throughout the world. Rumors amongst pagans found living their last breaths in alleyways speak of dark necromancers wielding devious magics. As of yet, no hero or party has ever survived the necromancer's beastly spawns.


The townspeople have descended into madness. After being exposed to magic for the first time and seeing world-bending monsters, their sanity has plunged into a manic state of nature. Townspeople have adopted their own rules, cutting each other's throats, while risking their own, at the chance of plundering weapons from the necromancer's beasts – weapons that are rumored to be quite valuable to dark merchants in the heart of the town.

Economy

Limited in-game currency model

Metagates was designed to be a free-to-play blockchain game with a potential cosmetic subscription model. The in-game currency will have a hard-capped supply. As more in-game currency is hoarded by players the drop rate reduces. Any new in-game currency brought into the system will be through subscriptions. In-game currency sinks, as land taxes and other mechanisms will also be used to keep the value of the in-game currency in range. In-game currency will have an exchange pair where the team provides liquidity from a portion of the value raised from future land sales.

In-game currency supply and breakdown

The Teams incentive will be purchased from the LP with the teams own personal funds, and be set to a TBD release schedule.
The loot contract for in-game currency will hold half of total supply with the marketing portion set aside from it.

This leaves the allocation as following:

Team: 10%
Liquidity Pool: 40%
In-game Loot Contract: 40%
Marketing: 10%

Housing and Land

Landlords must pay a monthly tax on their land in Metagates. This tax goes to the region the land is placed in, and depending on the houses location within the region, will be partially distributed to the region's monster's loot tables.

Not all houses can be placed anywhere - they will have specific regional boundaries. Some must be placed next to castles, towns, or towers. Others cannot be placed in safe places.

Castle and tower owners can choose how much land around their building will qualify as regional land. The more land claimed, the higher their base tax will be. Towers and castles can also choose a regional specialty bonus that can ONLY be funded automatically through a portion of the taxes.
