|Bright Star Studios||Ember Sword||Land sale|
Bright Star Studios will organize a community land sale for their upcoming MMORPG Ember Sword, aimed at selling 6,000 land plots to community members. Dedicated gamers and passionate members of their community can apply for land parcels, and purchase them. These sales will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
The community land sale is Bright Star Studios’ response to the mistakes made during their first sale. Technical malfunctions made it impossible to acquire land. However, only some cheeky enough to play with smart contracts, were able to get some. The Ember Sword land sale sold out, but left many community members in the cold.
To apply for the community land sale, you need to fill in a form on the official Ember Sword website. The smallest plots will sell for $40, and these prices go all the way up to $80,000 for an entire city.
A land plot, which is roughly the size of your game screen, is the smallest piece of land you can buy. For $40 you become a Sir or a Lady, and your land can host campsites, NPC houses, monsters, and resources. For roughly $400, or actually 0,107 ETH, you get a settlement plot. Small-sized buildings can be placed here, for example a guild outpost or some stores.
Pay 2.139 ETH or $8,000 and you get 4 land plots that combine as a town. These allow for bigger buildings, an exchange that connects with the global gaming network. If you really have many to throw around, you could ten times as much and acquire a city. During the next sale all prizes will be doubled.
