Pirates of the Arrland is a MOBA and arcade game Pirate metaverse combining modern video game with blockchain technology. Token $RUM and $ARRC
Pirates of the Arrland is an arcade game with a narrative campaign covering many adventures combined with MMO strategic & economic experience, happening on the beautiful but exotic tropical islands. The aim is to complete quests, such as collecting gems, avoiding obstacles, fighting enemies, and exploring the island. All of this to find valuable treasures hidden in chests with a real value NFT items! The further you go, the warmer and harder it gets! Every Pirate will have its own small private island with only 1 small slot for a building or plantation.
Genesis pirates will be able to use this tiny island economically to a limited extent – as long as you have a certain amount of $ RUM on your wallet. Bigger island will be available as a Private NFT Islands with multiple slots allowing to build bigger buildings and running more complex economy. Some islands, due to their fertile land, will be better suited for farms, and other ones will be better for building a mine.
Nowadays there are plenty of NFT projects all over the Internet, but what makes us truly special is that we don’t make empty promises. We deliver. Our project stands out from the crowd not only with its high-quality, but also people behind it. Our team is made of people that already have solid experience in the video games industry. We want to give our holders the actual game, not just a word.
We came up with the idea of combining two worlds – NFT and 3D high quality video games. In the Pirates of the Arrland you will be able to play a your own Pirate. If you have more than one, you’ll be free to choose between them all and seek the best traits, as they’ll have a real influence on the game! This way, it will increase the game replayability and it’ll never get boring.
We’ve been testing different features and mechanics, trying to get the most fun out of it. Soon, we’re going to release the playable version of the game in Adventure Mode, so every Pirate holder will be able to play it for free. What we’ve made and shown is just a small piece of our thorough masterpiece that we’ve been working on for over a year. Learned from our experience, we know that it takes more time to carry out this project, not just one phase. Still, we want to show the whole process, so you can follow our steps and support us in what we do.
Different multiplayer modes and play styles
Pirates of the Arrland – in the first phase – will be an multiplayer PvP game. Participants will be able to play as their NFT avatars in two different camera settings: First Person Perspective and Third Person Perspective.
Players will compete with others to earn glory and rewards in different game modes such as: deathmatch, capture the flag, battle royale and others. They will be able to play individually or cooperate as a team.
There will be a possibility to use NFT items as an aid in the fight against other players. You’ll be able to use it to attack the enemy directly, or to take advantage of an opportunity that he sees on the battlefeld. Different maps will have different terrain amenities that everyone will be able to use to make the rest of the players diffcult to achieve their desired goals. They will also be able to take advantage of various deadly traps and devices such as cannons, crushers, wolf pits, movable bridges, trapdoors, rolling stones and more.
Proven and tested solutions for multiplayer mode, no need to use artifcial intelligence, a variety of traps and battlefelds, simplicity of the game and a low entry threshold will make the game very replayable and very enjoyable at the same time.
Lots of opportunities to gain wealth and glory
Players will have the possibility to invite other players to their own islands or even run their own adventure or tournament event. The best players will not only gain fame and respect among other players – by becoming the leaders of the rankings, but victories in individual duels and battles will also be rewarded with prizes.
The prizes can be both popular resources such as wood, iron ore or coconuts, but also NFT items such as knives, axes and fintlock pistols. Sometimes the reward will be a new piece of pirate outfit, other times it will be a key part to build a great pirate ship.
Players will be able to show off by using their creativity and arranging their place, or simply relax on their private islands. Every Pirate owner will be able to allocate his treasures, catch a
fish, plant or palm, or hang a skeleton on a tree in the Sandbox game mode. There will be also a possibility to create buildings or, for an instance, grow a sugar cane. Larger private islands will alllow player to create more complex buildings and run a complex economy.
Thanks to the advanced economy and many buildings such as mine, shipyards and markets, any pirate can become an important part of the Arrland ecosystem. The most agile will have a chance to build a real empire without fring a single shot.
Future develpoment – environment, co-op, multi, mobile
The game will have many different settings. Tropical islands are just the beginning. Next, upcoming lands will vary from ice, snowy islands, undergrounds and more. There’ll be many various habitats occupied by other nations and monsters.
Pirates will have the ability to go through some co-operative missions. During these missions, it will be important to choose the right pirate and skillfully use its unique properties.
The more pirates the player owns, the more game possibilities and replayability will occur.
Special modes will be prepared for players who want a greater thrill and more serious competition. Multiplayer naval battles, raids on the territory of the enemy alliance, the theft of precious gems from the treasury are just some of the attractions waiting for the inhabitants of the Arrland metaversum.
In the future, we plan to port game for different platforms – so that you can play on multiple devices. Also, we’d like to introduce shortened mobile version (for strategic and economic management only) – so that you can supervise the development of your colony everywhere and anytime.The project will be constantly developed. We’d like to hear and meet the expectations of our community.
NFT main collections
In October 2021 we’ve created a randomly generated collection of 10 000 NFT Genesis Men Pirates. Those pirates were created from over 300 different traits by using 3D and 2D graphics. Later, there will be 5 000 NFTs of Genesis Women Pirates. Those pirates will have unique features like ability to receive $RUM tokens, and to reproduce of so called “Young Pirates”.
Pirates from Young Pirates NFT collection will be created by genesis pirate owners, allowing more people to join the Arrland Metaverse, as only Pirate owners (Genesis or Young) will be able
to enter the game. The number of Young Pirates won’t be limited; however, they won’t generate $RUM tokens and they can’t reproduce.
Pirates have different items, clothes, and other stuff. Some of those items are permanently assigned to the Pirate, but most of the single items will be elements of the Pirate NFT
Items Collection. Players will be able to find them in the chests during missions or craft them by using appropriate resources. Completing the quest will be rewarded by variety of
different items, which will have multiple uses in the Arrland Metaverse. At some point, there’ll be also a possibility to trade these items between players.
Most of the NFT items will be multifunctional with different rarity levels. For example a coconut can be:
Coconuts can’t be used for leveling up the player skills or in the process of crafting different NFT items, but there will be other items that will have such capabilities.
A glance at islands, buildings and economy
Every Pirate will have its own small private island with only 1 small slot for a building or plantation. Genesis pirates will be able to use this tiny island economically to a limited extent – as long as you have a certain amount of $RUM on your wallet. The bigger islands will be available as Private NFT Islands with multiple slots allowing to build bigger buildings and run a more complex economy. Some islands, due to their fertile land, will be better suited for farms, and other ones will be better for building a mine.
There will be different kinds of buildings that will require an appropriate number of resources, space, and a $RUM token to be built. Some buildings cannot be built on islands that are too small. Some buidings will need a pirate to operate them.
In the future, there will be a possibility to create other archipelagos with other environment settings like deserts, icy lands, or a dead world.
We plan to introduce a collection of unique, high-quality Legendary NFT Items that will be available only to $RUM holders in the gamifed presale.
There will be also cruising ships between islands, that will be led by those Pirates who have the appropriate amount of respect. Most of those ships will be created by players but some of them will be available to acquire by minting the Legendary NFT Ships collection.
Pirate King Treasury is a pool that will be divided into special rewards every month and eventually will be burnt. It will be raised from the initial tokenomics for 5 years and from the part of tokens that will be spent by players. DAO will decide what happens to a the Treasury and how it is distributed.
Burming the RUM token will make the token deflationary due to decreasing quantity of the tokens in circulation.
Players will be able to spend their RUM on different occasions, for example, on reproduction, claiming / minting powerful NFT items, crafting – the production, and acquisition of resources that will engage pirates in the economic process happening on the islands. Long sea voyages that bring the opportunity to discover new lands or rent the pirates and lands, will also require RUM.
1% of the tokens will go to the Company to maintain servers. balance. and develop the game as well as the ecosystem.
Staking – which is holding the $RUM token for a given period of time to get rewards.
$ARRC – Gold token diagram (in-game currency)
$ARRC – Arrland Gold Coin – the second token in our game. It is used for transaction exchange between players in the resource trade. It will also be possible to spend it during the interaction with the game environment represented by neutral NPCs for various services, temporary power-ups, magic and healing potions, etc. (in these cases these coins will be burned). Gold coins are created in production by processing dug gold from mines on some private NFT islands. The entire production process will require suitable raw materials, operating pirates, and time. Arrland gold coins ($ARRC) will be exchangeable for the $RUM token.
DAO will decide what’s the percentage distribution of the Pirate King Treasury, and how many (if any) tokens from the Fund will be burnt. To be qualifed for voting, the user has to own at least one Genesis Pirate. To be able to vote, the user needs to have a minimum 200$ of value in $RUM tokens for at least one month before voting. The distribution of votes is presented in the image on the left.
