How does Mirandus work?
“In planning Mirandus, we have looked back at all the games that presented us with so much wonder when we were younger. Technology is now reaching a point where it is possible to give players immutable ownership of shards of a world. In Mirandus, you can be anyone you would like to be, venturing out into a rich world, to create your own stories and adventures. Inspired by games ranging from old-school MUD’s (multi-user dungeons), modern MMORPGs, and the best that blockchain gaming has to offer, Mirandus will stand the test of time as one of the most ambitious games to be released and which functions within a blockchain-based universe.” - Michael McCarthy, Game Designer
If you own a citadel in MIrandus, you become the king. The king and his team members get a massive follower base due to their skills and attributes. Mirandus is not a multiplayer interactive conflict game generally. The player vs. player (PVP) mode gets activated only upon fulfilment of special conditions. The king is the most powerful person in this world. Land ownership is a key feature of the game. More land you own, you gain more power. The land deeds come with titles and the right to rule the land. The king makes rules. The king can break rules too.
“When you own something in Mirandus, it is YOURS. There will be five Citadels in the game to start, and ownership of the citadel gives you the right to create and lead your own faction, charge taxes on trade, develop your own heraldry, set economic policies, and determine military strategy. YOU make the decisions, YOU build the alliances, and YOU go to war against the other Monarchs. In Mirandus, evil is always lurking. Securing a piece of land and the walls land ownership provides is a way to keep evil at bay. It provides a safe haven for players to rest and gear up for their next adventure.” - Michael McCarthy, Game Designer
