A highly toxic material came down within the meteorite. No one knows anything about its origin, only that it crashed into Australia. As a result, the meteorite exploded on impact throwing what was effectively alien Materia into the atmosphere, which then created a dust cloud that enveloped the entire planet....
Our main storyline circulates around a fictitious post-apocalyptic era, brought about by a world-shattering meteorite that crashed into the Australian continent, wiping it out completely. Along with the massive loss of life, natural disasters took root claiming even more lives. From Tsunamis, to earthquakes, to forest fires, the world went dark, into chaos and depravity. To make things even worse, rogue nations that survived the initial destructive crash, declared war on one another in a desperate attempt to capture valuable resources which in this case was fresh drinking water and arable lands for agricultural purposes as well as livestock rearing.
This is where The Apocalyptics story begins, years after a nuclear war breaks out by those rogue nations. A few humans survive mainly on the South American continent. The Andes is the location for our story because it has one of the world’s longest mountain ranges, with its varied terrain that encompasses glaciers, volcanoes, grassland, deserts, lakes, and forests. Being on the other side of the world thousands of miles away from the Meteorite’s ground zero, the Andes had the highest survival rate, hence the reasoning behind our base Terrain cards. Only a small percentage of human life remains and the few who are still alive are struggling to survive.
A highly toxic material came down within the meteorite. No one knows anything about its origin, only that it crashed into Australia. As a result, the meteorite exploded on impact throwing what was effectively alien Materia into the atmosphere, which then created a dust cloud that enveloped the entire planet.
It eventually fell onto the earth saturating every landmass and ocean, with what scientists started calling Apocalypseium or APOC for short, mainly due to the Apocalyptic events that it brought about. APOC is not deadly upon exposure, but it has extreme mutating attributes. It affects the very fabric of anything it encounters.
There are 3 states of APOC: Gaseous, Liquid and Solid form. Each state has varying levels of side effects when exposed to living or non-living objects. The Liquid state being the most constructive and the Gaseous state being the most destructive. Scientists discovered that upon breathing in APOC, it alters any living being’s DNA, mutating them into strange and horrific creatures. While Liquid APOC on the other hand seemed to make plant-life thrive and increase in growth and resilience. Solid form is extremely rare and hard to find let alone study, as it is only found at the epicentre of the meteorite’s ground zero! It has been rumoured that titan beasts roam the land where the meteorite crashed. Anyone who has tried to explore those lands has never made it back and were never seen or heard of again.
Scientists theorise that solid APOC is so powerful in its properties, that just 1 gram of it would be enough to power a whole city for hundreds of years. Some heavily financed rogue groups that survived the initial meteorite crash, have tried for many years to synthesize the fabled solid form of APOC, but to no avail.
In the Apocalyptics meta-verse, every living and inanimate object has absorbed various amounts of Apocalypseium. The higher amount of Apocalypseium absorbed, in turn equates to the higher rarities of NFTs. For example, a Common NFT has absorbed the lowest base amount of Apocalypseium, while a Legendary has the highest amount of absorbed Apocalypseium. The most unique absorption is that of the Ultimate Coin, which has absorbed the most APOC known to mankind.
In the Apocalyptics meta-verse, every living and inanimate object has absorbed various amounts of APOC (Apocalypseium). The higher amount of Apocalypseium absorbed, in turn equates to higher rarities of NFTs. For example, a Common NFT has absorbed the lowest base amount of Apocalypseium, while a Legendary has the highest amount of absorbed Apocalypseium. The most unique absorption is that of the Ultimate Coin, which has absorbed the greatest amount of APOC. Introducing the Extractor! It is an invaluable UI(user interface) tool, used for extracting APOC from the entire Apocalyptics NFT collection (excluding promo NFTs). It is essential for the staking mechanism. Its function is to extract the absorbed Apocalypseium from an NFT. The Extractor will have 25 + 2 slots for NFT insertion. Each player will be able to insert 25 NFTs from any of the 5 Categories available: Terrains, Mutants, Characters, Structures, Specials and 2 Tokens (Ultimate coin and APOC Barrel). Different rarities can be slotted together, and the Extractor will automatically calculate the total amount of Apocalypseium that can be extracted per hour, hence forth known as APOC/hr!
Players will be able to log on to the Gaming Website, where they will be met with various buttons on the landing page. One of them will be The Extractor. Once clicked, players will be taken to The Extractor's User Interface. The screen will be split in two, one side where players will choose the NFTs from their collection, and one side to place their chosen NFTs into the slots of the Extractor. There will be a visual representation which will be in the form of collection tubes or barrels. Once the player is satisfied with the number of slots used, or the max amount has been filled up, the player will then be able to claim his/her APOC that has been extracted from the slotted NFTs, every 24hrs, as long as the NFTs remain in the allotted slots. The amount of APOC received, will be automatically calculated depending on the number of NFTs Staked that day, and on their individual rarity.
There is no limit to the number of times a player can insert or release an NFT from the Extractor. There is no penalty for releasing an NFT and inserting another one, perhaps of a higher rarity. The Extractor will just recalculate the APOC/hr rate and commence extraction. As a bonus, gameplay will not be affected by the Extractor. The in-game mechanism will search for a player’s complete Apocalyptics collection in their WAX wallet, whether slotted in the Extractor or otherwise. Thereby giving players the freedom to choose whichever card they want to use in the game, without affecting their APOC extraction.
The Apocalypseium extracted will automatically be sent to the owner’s in-game wallet/account. Once our dApp game is fully developed and launched, players will then be able to use their APOC to purchase various upgrades, weapons etc, from an in-game store, which can then be used for the online battles!!
