Age Of Zalmoxis (KOSON) is a third-person massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) based on the Elrond blockchain built with Unreal Engine 5. The game is set in an ancient fantasy world inspired by European folklore, with dungeons and thousands of quests. Players create characters and gain experience through combat, narrative content, events, crafting, dungeons, and other means to grow. In creating a fantasy version of the kingdom of Dacia, it has become one of the most popular AAA games.
Gameplay and Characters
Currently, there are two ways to create characters in Age Of Zalmoxis. Players can obtain two different types of NFT characters for free from the marketplace or from guilds. Players can develop their game characters by gaining combat experience, creating different stories, winning tournaments, crafting and many other ways.
The game has two narrative models: adventures and organic content. The adventure narrative guides players to grow and obtain corresponding rewards according to the growth of the character; other players create unique new content through the newly generated content of the game.
Players can also build different structures, such as castles, by acquiring a certain number of land plots. These can be used throughout the game or staked to generate tokens that drive the game economy.
Marketplace and NFTs
The Marketplace has been launched in the game, and players can use EGLD or the game’s native token KOSON to trade NFT assets in the game, such as heroes, equipment, resources, weapons, etc.
The initial character NFT is called the Origin Soul, and players with two Origin Souls can summon another Soul called The Summoned.
Summoning a soul costs EGLD and some KOSONs and is contingent on how many times a soul has already been summoned. There’s a limit of 6 summons per player/NFT.
It is worth noting that Souls of the same Element will summon the same Element. Also, having the 6 of all different elements will summon the 7th Mystic Element. The KOSON tokens used for summoning will be burned.
6 Origin Elements can summon the 7th Mystic Element one time and the cost is reflected in the Summon table above.
In Age of Zalmoxis, there are 5 region types (biomes): Continental, Steepe, Panonic, Pontic, and Alpine. Players can own land in these biomes, and land owners or players who rent land can build buildings, provide services, hire workers, and provide narrative, role-playing, and making content.
Land owners will have the right to the harvest first or give other players the opportunity to gather resources spawned on their land with a commission % set by them. The scale and type of resource production depends on the number of plots.
In AoZ, a character is defined by their traits and skills. There are four types of skills: Martial, Mystical, Social, and Trade.
Martial Skills: Each type of weapon provides a number of active and passive abilities. The higher a character’s skill with the weapon, the more abilities they possess. A character can train in all types of weapons and switch between them in combat, but they can only carry a limited number at one time.
Mystical Skills: This is how adept the character is with sorcery.
Social skills: Associated with the roleplaying and narrative aspects of the game.
Trade skills: Tied to professions.
