Currently, the head concept artist is working on a BEAUTIFUL image that shows the direction in which Mirandus is progressing…however…it’s not done yet. We wanted to release that to you today, but that will have to come a bit later on. It is, by far, the most complex of the scenes being released and will REALLY give users a good idea of what the world will feel like.
Instead, we would like to give you a bit of insight into the world of Mirandus in preparation for a new set of buildings being released to the node owners. Several of these are self-explanatory — storehouses, well, store things — you get the idea.
However, what careful people inspecting the OpenSea birth history of items will notice is that four items stand out as being very special and demonstrate a new dimension to the world of Mirandus that has previously not been explored. These buildings are the Stable, the Large Stable, the Grand Stable, and the Majestic Stable. You will also notice a Hitching Post, which might better be described as “horse storage.”
So, what happens in a Stable? In addition to storing mounts, stables are also needed to interact with the breeding mechanisms of the game. Do you and your friends have epic mounts you think would make particularly excellent offspring? If so, you could take them to a stable, execute a smart contract transaction, and voila, there is a new baby mount which must be cared for and trained until it is old enough to serve as a mount.
Stables are going to be rare. In the ENTIRE world of Mirandus, there can only be 400 stables, 30 large stables, 20 grand stables, and 10 majestic stables. This will make mounts and breeding relatively rare but vital parts of the in-game travel and trade dynamic.
So keep your eyes on your Treasure Chest!
Provably Random Distribution
There will be another larger post on this later, but this week the provably random distribution will come online for Node Owners. This is the first generation of this and it will likely be tweaked over time, but it is at least a step in the right direction. Keep watching for more information!
