The core game mechanics and features of a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) are well established. Creating unique characters to explore fantastical worlds, battle beasts, the environment, and each other, alone or alongside allies and guildmates are all vital elements that have propelled gamers further and deeper into their mythical worlds.
Welcome to Elumia City
The development team building Legends of Elumia blends vast experience in building MMORPGs on PC and mobile platforms with deep expertise in the still nascent crypto marketplace. The team understands the expectations of the MMORPG audience and the potential of the blockchain mechanics to craft even deeper relationships between the gamer and their characters and environment. That’s why Legends of Elumia is one of the few real games currently in development in this space, backed by established gameplay mechanics alongside fresh ideas.
Right from the get-go players will recognize the vibrant visual style that immediately establishes a high bar. Experience across established MMOs will ensure that the user interface is both familiar to past players while being intuitive and accessible to the newcomers expected to explore Elumia. The fact that the items scavenged or earned, traded or bought remain a part of your character provides incredible, tangible value to the time spent exploring this ever-evolving world.
Functionally, Legends of Elumia operates on the Solana blockchain, which means incredibly fast transaction speeds and little to no cost. With all of these tools baked into the underlying Elumia system it should allow newcomers and experienced crypto enthusiasts and investors to meld into a vibrant, active community of users.
About the game
Elumia itself is a city built around The Infinite Tower, a landmark so ancient that its origins are lost among rumor, legend, tall tales, and faded memories. The mysterious tower emits a power source from its shimmering portal that leads…? As an adventurer blessed with specialized skills and maybe teamed with friends who complement those talents with their own powers and items, the portal could be a door to rare rewards. It could also be a gateway to peril. But who knows for sure until you step through?
Before making that leap of faith you can explore the region around the city, scavenge for crafting materials, complete tasks requested by the local citizens, and earn the equipment that will enhance your skills sufficiently for you to survive deep dungeons and more epic confrontations. Through the simple-to-use communication functions you will be able to find like-minded adventurers, help their particular quests, and challenge bigger enemies where the rewards — high-powered items, NFTs — will be attainable. Of course, once added to your character they are owned, for all time, the details and information stored on the blockchain for you to manage as you choose.
Customizability in looks, outfits, items worn or wielded ensure that each character can have a unique and vibrant look, and through the marketplace upgraded equipment can be sourced and bought or traded.
Unique features of Legends of Elumia
Elumia is an MMORPG that stands heads and shoulders above other games in this space in both its colorful visual style and its ambition blending established gameplay mechanics with digital assets. For established gamers and newcomers to the space, the opportunities in this play-to-earn environment will be immediately apparent.
Players will retain total ownership of their in-game assets such as weapons, buildings, pets, and even digital land. In addition, all the NFTs will have a 2D avatar image, a 3D viewable version, and a fully animated in-game 3D asset. This opens up a new level of player interaction as Elumia users will be able to trade these assets within the marketplace. These NFTs will also be available for sale on other platforms outside the Elumia website, exposing players to the much broader NFT ecosystem.

Elumia is ideally suited to illustrate and also take advantage of the opportunities presented for core game experiences in the metaverse. Whether a player wants to make a name for themselves in arena duels, become a legend for their exploits clearing dungeons, a store owner providing resources to the broader community, or even a landowner carving out a piece of their own virtual land, Elumia will be a digital playground of vast and varied opportunity.
One intriguing gameplay element for all players to explore in Elumia is player-versus-player (PvP) duels. In this mode, gamers will compete against each other in the arena in battle formats featuring individual contests or team-based clashes. Experience and items earned through these challenges will allow a character to remain atop the rankings. They can then add through trade or purchase NFTs representing enhanced weapons or armor that can propel them further up the ladder and attain still improved in-game digital loot.
Around Elumia the landscape will be dotted with a variety of challenges that contribute to enhancing the backstory of this intriguing world. They also provide key challenges where the character’s abilities are tested in solo situations or where grouping with associates will be required. A guild system will allow characters to join like-minded players, providing an almost instant source of possible party members or specific help that you may need to defeat a particular encounter. Of course, the strong solo route is always an option for players who want to carve their own path through the Elumia ecosystem.
Legends of Elumia is one of very few games that uses two different native utility tokens — $ELU and $EKS.
- Elumia Crowns ($ELU)
$ELU is Elumia’s governance and staking token. Holders of $ELU will be allowed to participate in DAO governance and stake their tokens to earn rewards. $ELU can also be used within the game and spent to purchase character upgrades.
- Elumia Crystals ($EKS)
$EKS is Elumia’s in-game currency token. Players gain these tokens by participating in various activities within the game environment. These tokens are the recognized medium of exchange within Elumia city and are spent during in-game activities.
