  6. Project Overview

    Our mission in Tollan is to create an adventurous MMORPG where in addition to completing quests, gathering together with your friends for raids, and other RPG-native elements you could also build your own story, and dungeons, and even get rewarded for it.

    In Tollan we work together with various DAOs, DeFi protocols, and NFT projects to build quests where people not only get in-game utilities for interacting with protocols but also learn something in a non-invasive gamified way, we call it Play+Learn+Earn. Our mission is to bring Web3 gaming closer to the general audience by building a utility-driven DeFi layer on top of the core gameplay. Players can get rewards for staking, providing liquidity, contributing to DAOs, or creating NFTs.

    We are currently getting ready for our first alpha test where players will be able to complete quests, interact with gamified DeFi protocols, go to co-op PVE missions and simply explore the mysterious worlds of Tollan.

    Learn about DAOs, DeFi, and NFTs in a variety of gamified experiences built together with our partners and get valuable collectibles. Our mission is to bring Web3 gaming closer to the general audience by building a utility-driven DeFi layer on top of the core gameplay. Players can get rewards for staking, providing liquidity, contributing to DAOs, and creating NFTs.

    We also have Tollan Comic:
    Dive deeper into the lore of Tollan Worlds with our community-made comic book. The goal is not only to get readers acquainted with aesthetics, inhabitants, and other components of our Metaverse but also to demonstrate the importance of Web3 and its values through entertaining and collaborative storytelling

  7. Value Proposition to EPNS

    In our MMORPG gaming world, there is always something happening, and its easy to forget about some important aspects. You are casually walking through the mountains to slay that final lizard but you suddenly remember that you have only 20 more minutes to claim your reward for staking some tokens with that miner in a gold mine a while ago. Or you forgot about your agreement with fellow Wizards, Punks, and Apes to go on a co-op mission this evening, and already turned off your PC. And finally, there is this weekly tournament, and you could really use those prize money to get some more golden melons for your next quest, but exactly on this day, you’ve decided to take a day off the metaverse.

    EPNS is a game-changer for keeping track of all things that are happening around the Worlds of Tollan. With EPNS, not a single Tollaners will now miss their regular reward from integrated DeFi protocols. Not a single event will be missed due to players being offline, and nobody will now have an excuse not to play with their teammates, cause they will receive a “call-to-action” notification straight to their EPNS app or extension.

    Tollan is already attracting more and more DeFi and NFT users, and further, we go, more focus would be put on the general gaming audience. We want to create the most smooth and simplest way to onboard people into the metaverse and web3, and this, therefore, will draw more attention to EPNS as a core mechanism of the in-game interaction layer.

Great Proposal there @mkx
I have a few questions tho

  1. In milestone 1 you mentioned that your potential number of subscribers was 4500, how was that number arrived at.
  2. What are your monthly views on your website.
  3. Is there a demo that can be shown in a community call
  4. On the NFTS
  • what is the total supply
  • will there be a separate land and character sale or will it be a bundle of 2 in one sale.
  1. How many people are on the waitlist currently and are there any DAOs/DeFi protocols that your are partnered up with at the moment.
  2. Will there be a separate play to play game that is just for casual users who just want to play the game.

Hey, aswin, great questions, let me break it all down for you:

  1. It’s a combination of our Twitter and Discord audiences. The actual expected number of users of our channel is larger due to the fact that we are saving our go-to-market marketing plan in collaboration with our partners for a few weeks ahead of the release of our demo, players will earn in-game rewards {resources, wearables, etc…} for connecting to Tollan’s EPNS channel, so we expect the majority of players to be connected to the channel.
  2. Our website got launched earlier this month, in our Twitter we have ~40-50k monthly tweet impressions.
  3. We are in a process of development, the first version of our demo for private testing will be released in July.
  4. Our mission is to release NFTs with utilities from day 1, we want to provide value to our community, not just promises. We decided to take a creative approach to land ownership in the metaverse and inspire land owners to actually contribute to the gaming world and gain rewards for it, this is everything we could publicly speak about at this stage unfortunately
  5. We have nearly 2200 people on the waitlist. Our partners, including DAOs, DeFi protocols, and NFT collections, can be found on our website. To name a few of them there are Sushi, BoringDAO, Double Protocol, etc…
  6. As mentioned on our website we focus to create an actual MMORPG experience where players could also create their own stories, dungeons, and more… and then put a DeFi layer on top of it for players to gain additional valuable game utilities for interacting with them.

Let me know if you have any additional question and we can’t wait to welcome EPNS to our ecosystem :smiley:
