What is Nine Chronicles?
Nine Chronicles is an idle role playing game in which players need to combat enemies, defeat bosses, create weapons, gather resources and brew potions. This blockchain game runs on its own private blockchain and uses that to store all gameplay choices and ownership over digital assets.
The developers promote Nine Chronicles as a ‘fully decentralized RPG powered by the players’. According to them gamers can play, mine resources (and therefore make money), trade (and make money) and govern the game world together. As a result gamers will have some form of political power in game world.
The great war between the gods ripped the Nine Worlds apart, and even though the gods eventually put an end to their conflict, the scars of war had already started to cause Yggdrasil, the world tree to wither. Then one day, a stray cat in Midgard wishing to be reborn as a human, was called by the goddess and reincarnated as a half-cat, half-human being.
The World of Nine Chronicles has nine regions in total. For example, the cute little teratoma creatures live in Yggdrasil, but attack everything on sight. Other regions will offer unique enemies, boss, and resources.
