Land Rewards

Building on what we covered in our last post, let's talk rewards!

To recap, each planet has 5 continents. Those continents are each comprised of 10 lands offering various rewards, quests, and challenges for collecting.

Looking at the "Rewards" legend, the overall rewards breakdown for each continent is the same:

  • 3 Coin Lands
  • 4 Card Lands
  • 3 Crate Lands (1 with a Gold Card)

These land types each unlock weekly reward quests:

  • Coin quests yield 3,000 coins
  • Card quests yield a random card of Common to Mythic rarity
  • Crate quests yield a Normal-Faction Crate (chance for a Mythic or Foil upgrade!)

As you complete sets of lands, you'll gain access to challenging boss duels that reward you with Altered Keystone crates. Collecting all lands in a continent unlocks the final boss duel with that continent's master. Defeating them will open the way to Creation Relics (more in a future post!) which can passively generate cards, crates and Altered Keystones.

What distinguishes each continent are the groupings required to complete land sets. For example: Cor (above) requires different land rarities for each set, but Flos' purple set (below) is just 2 commons and a 1 rare. This creates an option between steadily accruing rewards or quickly amassing "low hanging" land sets.

Check out the rest of Auri Ignei's continents to see the subtle differences:

Psst! Lands can contain additional hidden rewards, but you didn't hear that from me!

Land Presale Update

Our presale sold out, and we now hold ~25% of $STELLARUM's circulating supply! This amount will not be sold, as we intend to use it to fund the weekly $STELLARUM airdrop and future player events. We hope the timing of this presale will allow us to create a steady cycle of $STELLARUM flowing into and out of this "pool" to support upcoming in-game tokenomics.

A secondary goal is to avoid minting additional $STELLARUM unless absolutely necessary as we nudge ourselves closer to a somewhat stable equilibrium.

Thuringian Preview

This week, we're showcasing art for Thuringians faction's new cards:
