The Castles and Dragonas

Updated: Jan 11

Description update - V2


INTRODUCTION


Castles and Dragons is a Play-2-Earn multiplayer game set in the Arcona metaverse. The game gives you the opportunity to build and manage your own castle on your lands, interact with other players, have fun and earn income.


FIRST RELEASE

We are launching the first release (alpha version) of the game which can mine Silver if required conditions are met. This is just the first part of the much larger Castles ecosystem and other parts will be gradually introduced and integrated into the gameplay.


FEEDBACK

Arcona has always valued its community and therefore any feedback about the Castles and Dragons is welcome. We will collect feedback after every integration of a new functionality and will make adjustments based on player experience to balance and improve the game.




LATEST UPDATES - MYSTERIES OF CASTLES AND DRAGONS


First of all, you will dive into a fantastic universe where magic and technology merge and connect with each other.


Here, the steampunk world of steampunk technology with steam engines, balloons and machinery from the Victorian era collides with the magic of the Middle Ages, where magical creatures rule and fantastic animals and plants live.

The project is developing rapidly and we are ready to tell you about the new game units that will appear in the near future! Read more



TERMS OF PARTICIPATION

Elements of the Castles ecosystem will be gradually introduced into the gameplay with each new release, with prior notification of players about the launch of the next feature.

SILVER MINING CONDITIONS


One player account can have only one wallet linked to it. All required NFTs and tokens for the game must be on the linked wallet. In order for a Castle to mine Silver, the player has to have the following NFTs in the linked wallet:

  1. Title - player level

  2. Castle - corresponding to the level of the player

  3. Domain - corresponding to the level of the castle

  4. Lands - in an amount corresponding to the area occupied by the castle


SILVER GENERATION


Every Castle in player’s possession will start mining Silver to the player’s treasury within 24 hours after registering the account and linking the wallet with all required NFTs (game units).


In the current version, Silver mining by all Castles in player’s wallet is reflected on the portal’s “balance” tab.


LEVELS AND SETS


There are 7 different levels of NFT game units. Each level forms 1 set of a functional Castle that can mine Silver.

Silver can be mined only if the player has all 4 NFT game units of the same level that form a full set in the linked wallet.


For example, a Knight’s castle, Knight of the Purple Light title, Feod domain and 1 Arcona digital land plot form a full working set of one Knight’s castle.

Title NFTs are an exception here. A player needs to have only 1 Title NFT for all his Castles of that level to be able to mine Silver.


For example, if a player has 4 Baron’s Castles, only 1 Barony Title is needed. If a player has a mix of Knight’s and Baron’s Castles, only 1 Feod and 1 Barony Title is needed.

The Grandmaster Title has a unique property. This Title is equal in level as the Markgraf Title but a player must not have any lower level Titles in his possession in order for the lower level Castles to mine Silver. That means 1 Grandmaster Title is enough for all Castles from level 1 to 5.


GOLDEN ARCONA


Gold is a game currency very similar to Silver. The value of 1 Gold is equal to 1 USDT which is the base cost of one square meter of Digital Earth.


Gold has a unique stablecoin property and therefore its value will always be 1 USDT no matter of market fluctuations.


Together with the Arcona token, Gold will form a dual token system to balance the value of the Arcona token and enable easier gaming experience and new player onboarding.


All types of economic activities within the boundaries of the Arcona Metaverse will be conducted exclusively in Gold.

Silver, land plots, AR content, or any other assets and services from the system and on P2P markets will be nominated and exchanged exclusively for Gold.


Gold is bought and sold exclusively for Arcona tokens issued in one of the blockchain networks.


When buying Gold, all Arcona tokens received by the team's treasury will be burned until the exchange price of Arcona tokens equalizes with the price of Gold (1 USDT).


After aligning the value of Gold and Arcona tokens, the team will send Arcona tokens to the DEX swap pools to ensure liquidity and maintain an optimal spread.


Gold is powered by the proprietary Arcona Technology Inc (Piligrim XXI) Digital Earth creation technology.


The total supply of Gold is limited by the amount of Digital Land that can be created in the Arcona Metaverse.


Gold will be issued exclusively on the request of players, as a result of a purchase with Arcona tokens, or as a result of an exchange with Silver.

TREASURY CAPACITY


Treasure capacity determines the maximum amount of Silver that can be stored in a castle. The capacity of each castle is equal to the maximum amount of Silver that a castle can mine in one month depending on the castle level.

*The amount of Silver a castle will mine without any additional staking.

**The amount of Silver a castle will mine when Boost staking is active.

***The amount of Silver a castle will mine before entering the depreciation cycle which requires Mandatory staking.


SILVER MINIG RATE


Basic


A working castle, without any additional staking, mines Silver at the rate of 40% of its maximum Silver mining capabilities.


Maximum


In order to use full Silver mining capabilities of a castle, Boost staking can be used.


Boost staking unlocks the full potential of a castle and remains active as long as the staking is active.


The size required to activate Boost staking is determined by the level of the castle.

 

Staking will be implemented in one of the future system updates

 

HOW TO WITHDRAW SILVER


Every castle goes through cycles of depreciation. Silver is mined throughout the cycle but cannot be withdrawn until the cycle ends.


The first depreciation cycle mines Silver equal to the value of each castle in Silver (refer to the previous table).


After the first depreciation cycle ends, a new depreciation cycle starts which needs Mandatory staking to unlock castle’s Silver mining.


After the player activates the Mandatory staking by staking Gold, the Silver mined in the previous depreciation cycle can be withdrawn to the player’s balance and Silver mining of the current depreciation cycle starts.


Silver can be exchanged for Golden Arcona without restrictions.


The current release saves the exchange of Silver received by hunters for ARCONA (BSC) tokens when reaching 10M silver.


Exchange rate 5000 silver = 1 ARCONA ( BSC )


Silver Exchange Cards are not used for the Silver exchange mined by castles.


Those NFTs will continue to be used in the Gold Rush game to exchange Silver for Arcona tokens from treasure hunting activities.



DEPRECIATION OF THE CASTLE


Every castle will mine Silver at least equal to the value of the same castle in Silver. This will allow the player to receive the basic income which covers the cost of the castle without performing any additional activities.


This type of Silver mining is valid until the castle mines the amount of Silver equal to its value. The time to mine the said Silver amount can be shortened by using the Boost staking.


Once the castle mines the amount of Silver equal to its value, the depreciation cycle starts and Mandatory staking is required to unlock the Silver mining again.


Depreciation cycles are endless in nature.


Only the castle is amortized over time through depreciation cycles. Titles, domains and land plots are not amortized.


Any change of the castle ownership does not change the depreciation status of the castle.


The depreciation status is tied to the castle’s NFT ID and transfers together with it


MANDATORY STACKING


The required staking amount for Mandatory staking increases cyclically as the castle mines Silver, starting at 35% of the castle's maximum monthly yield.


At the peak value it will reach 140% after which this value will begin to decrease.


If the requirements for Mandatory staking are not met, all functions of the castle, including the Silver mining, will stop until the requirements are met.


Staking is accounted for and tied to the wallet that is linked to the player’s account.


Staking is done with Gold coins in the treasury of each castle.

The following table can be used as an example for the Knight’s castle:

* A value of 1x is equal to the value of the Knight’s castle in Silver. A value of 2x is twice the value of the Knight’s castle in Silver.

**Relative to the maximum monthly return.

***Required amount of Gold to meet the Mandatory staking requirements.



BOOST STACKING


Boost staking is dynamic and it can be activated and deactivated anytime as it is not mandatory. Its value can be anywhere from 10% to 100% of the maximum monthly Silver mining amount of the castle.


At 100% it gives an increase of 60% to the castle’s monthly Silver mining amount thus unlocking the full potential of the castle.


Boost staking has no effect on disabled castles and it cannot replace Mandatory staking. Not activating Boost staking will not disable castles either.

When validating staking requirements, the staked Gold balance is first accounted to Mandatory staking and any Gold remainder is accounted to Boost staking.


Boost staking will give you a bigger increase in profitability if you activate it before the start of Mandatory staking.
