The Game World

Here’s a Bit of the Lore –  A new ICO launched on a new chain simply called “dragon,” and Degenerate Blockchain traders couldn’t get enough of it. Typical to the Degen nature, no-one read the contract as the notification popped up to buy with their dragon wallet. Upon hitting the accept button, these Degens were sucked into their devices to compete in a tournament to fight for their liquidity.

The Town Hub

The world of Degens & Dragons is set in a 3D environment Hub Centre where players can walk around different locations to interact with and play the game. Upon logging into the game for the first time, players are taken through a tutorial that demonstrates the different locations in the world of Degens & Dragons as well as its utility:

  • Mint Box – Purchase an NFT to participate in the game’s tournament.
  • Well of Souls – Burn 4 Degen NFTs that have been eliminated, to re-enter the tournament.
  • Blacksmith — Burn 3 items of the same kind, to re-roll for a new item with higher stats.
  • Battle Arena – Participate in battles during the tournament.
  • Leaderboard – See player scores, tournament phase duration and elimination conditions.
  • Training Dummy – Test their equipped items with no impact on their score.
  • Battle Gameplay – Upon entering a battle, players are pitted up against an AI controlled opponent.
  • A Match consists of 5 rounds of picking an action to attack the opponent.
  • The player has one of four actions to select from to do damage to the opponent:  Attack, Spell, Block and Dodge.
  • The opponent will also select an action that will do damage to the player.
  • A score is then allocated for each round based on the difference between the player’s damage to the opponent and the opponent’s damage to the player.

Damage is worked out with the following considered: 

  • Each character has 3 item NFT’s equipped to their Degen NFT (Head, Body & Weapon) that increase the damage done by each of the 4 actions.  
  • The four actions are set up in a rock, paper scissors scenario where having the winning outcome reduces the damage of your opponent’s income damage by 50%.  
  • Once all 5 rounds of selecting an action have been completed, the final score will be added to the players total score on the leaderboard. 
  • Players can battle as many times as they like during a tournament’s phase.

Tournament Details

Phase 1 — Duration: 1 Day. % of players eliminated: 50%. Reward: None
