the Business

Machiavellic ($MACH) a NFT-centric game native to the Cardano Chain, strives to make the blockchain invisible for users. We break down barriers by enabling players to join through other supported blockchains and welcoming those outside the crypto world, making Machiavellic accessible to all gamers.

Welcome to Machiavellic, where the cryogenic halls are more than just a setting—they are the heart of an immersive and dynamic gaming experience. In these halls, the core mechanics of the game come to life, creating an exciting and engaging environment. Players, known as Overlords, will command their officers, arm them, and engage in strategic combat, resource management, and crafting.

In Machiavellic, almost everything is tradeable, and most items are NFTs. This includes weapons, characters, armor, and rare collectibles. Some items, like Marketplace Shards, have utility outside the game. Players can trade gear, consumables, weapons, resources, and more using various currencies, not just $FGL. The lack of classes means that all skills and abilities are determined by the character’s gear and payload, allowing players to trade builds and styles of play.

Competitive events offer opportunities to earn rare and unique NFTs that provide rewards simply for owning them. For instance, being among the top 3 players at the end of a season can earn you a unique NFT that generates additional rewards in the next season. These unique NFTs also have significant gameplay value, offering benefits even after their initial reward mechanisms are retired.

THE CRYOGENIC HALLS

Developing an MMO is a complex endeavor, and we make no claims that it’s an easy task. To manage this challenge, the Machiavellic team is focused on gamifying the cryogenic halls, transforming them into an engaging and enjoyable game that seamlessly integrates the core mechanics of Machiavellic. This approach offers unique benefits for players, partners like SPOs, and the Machiavellic team by allowing us to implement and refine key gameplay elements directly.

Key features of this gamification include:

1 Convoy Events: Players arm their officers and attack convoys to break off containers filled with resources and rewards. Successfully shooting off a container grants 25% of its contents.

2 Mining and Resource Management: Between convoys, players must mine floating containers and resources, devising strategies to secure valuable resources while defending against other players. This PvP aspect of Machiavellic will shine here as players enhance their outfits by crafting more powerful weapons and modules.

3 PvP Mechanics: The cryogenic halls will host intense PvP battles where players can engage in strategic combat, testing their skills and equipment against others. These battles will influence the control of resources and the balance of power within the game.

4 Trading: Players can trade items, resources, and equipment within the cryogenic halls, utilizing the marketplace to optimize their strategies and improve their chances of success.

5 Faction Governance: Each player’s actions will contribute to the governance of their faction, influencing the overall strategy and direction of their group. Factions will compete for control and dominance within the cryogenic halls.
Crafting and Upgrading: Players will gather resources and craft new items, continuously upgrading their equipment and modules to gain an edge in both PvP and PvE scenarios.

6 Resource Gathering: In addition to mining, players will explore and exploit various resource nodes within the cryogenic halls, ensuring a steady supply of materials needed for crafting and upgrades.

By integrating these elements directly into the cryogenic halls, we create a dynamic and engaging environment that serves as the foundation for Machiavellic’s final, cohesive game product. This holistic approach ensures that every aspect of the game is thoroughly tested and refined, providing an immersive and balanced experience for all players.

The Cryogenic Hall strategy delivers a number of unique, essential benefits for players, partner staking pools, projects participating and for the Machiavellic team:

Early Access and Engagement:

Gives players an early taste of the game, as the gamified cryogenic halls (and their upgrades) will be rolled out much faster than waiting for the final MMO to launch.

Continuous Player Engagement:

Continuous Player Engagement: Keeps new and existing players continuously engaged in fun, game-related activities while the full MMO is being developed, creating another avenue for building early game loyalty.

Familiarization with Game Elements:

Allows players to become familiar with the game story, characters, gear capabilities, and more even before the full MMO launches.

Exciting Content for Partners:

Provides partners such as SPOs with a continuous flow of exciting material to communicate cryogenic hall updates and project milestones to their communities, attracting growth for themselves as well as Machiavellic.

Early Market Intelligence:

Gives us early market intelligence as to what players like (and dislike) the most, ensuring that when the full MMO launches, it will deliver the best gaming experience from the start.

Early Market Intelligence:

Enables the game assets of $FGL, $MACH, and NFTs to be actively used, traded, and given utility much earlier. These assets are integrated into the cryogenic halls, where players can craft, trade, and utilize them, ensuring a sense of continuity into the final launch.

TOKENOMICS

$MACH

THE EXQUISITE ELIXIR OF DARK MIGHT

1,000,000,000 Token Supply

$MACH is the primary and DAO token behind the Machiavellic project. Its primary use is for the community, such as to vote on developmental and game concerns. Ingame, $MACH also serves as the component for making endgame content, such as crafting the ultimate tier of weapons.

Of course, we do not force players who may not have any interest in crypto or the token to buy it. $MACH can be found and mined ingame in a very restricted manner, with only a certain amount of $MACH reserved for each season.

The Ultimate Machiavellic NFT

Marketplace Shards

In Machiavellic, almost everything in the game is an NFT that you can mold and shape to your desire. However, the most coveted NFT is the one that works outside the game: the Marketplace Shard. Machiavellic will issue 500 of these exclusive NFTs.

Machiavellic sustains its operations by charging a 10% transaction fee on player-to-player transactions within the game. Of this transaction fee, 25% is allocated to holders of the Marketplace Shards, providing an additional incentive for the community to participate in and benefit from the game’s economy. To ensure fairness, 200 of these shards can be bought directly, while the remaining 300 must be earned in-game.

In Machiavellic, territories can be controlled by guilds, with all zones producing taxes for resources mined from them. These rewards are sent to a central guild treasury, where the guild master and appointed captains can use or distribute them as they see fit. Rarer and highly contested zones will contain Marketplace Shards, generating income for the guilds that control them. Very rare zones will have multiple Marketplace Shards and other sought-after resources, making them the primary focus of PvP guild wars.

Community-Led Development and Design

Those who hold $MACH, hold a voice

In Machiavellic, players have the power to influence the direction and governance of their factions through a robust voting system. This system allows Overlords to cast votes on critical decisions that shape the faction’s policies and strategies, making player engagement and strategy pivotal to faction success.

Weight of Votes

The weight of each Overlord’s vote is determined by two key factors:

  1. Amount of MACH Held: Overlords who possess more MACH, the precious resource in Machiavellic, will have a greater influence in voting.
  2. Rank of Officers: The rank and prestige of the officers controlled by an Overlord also contribute to their voting power. Higher-ranked officers boost the Overlord’s voting weight.

This tiered voting system ensures that those who are most invested in the faction, both in terms of resources and strategic assets, have a significant say in its governance.

Governance and Decision-Making

Voting is crucial for players as it determines the core aspects of faction functionality, including but not limited to:

  1. Payouts to Officers: Players vote on how the faction allocates its resources and rewards to its officers. This decision impacts how effectively the faction can incentivize and retain powerful officers.
  2. Peace and War: Strategic decisions about alliances and hostilities with other factions are decided through votes. Players can steer their faction toward peace, forging beneficial alliances, or towards war, seizing opportunities for expansion and dominance.

The faction voting mechanics thus create a dynamic and player-driven political landscape in Machiavellic. Overlords must not only amass resources and powerful officers but also engage politically to ensure their faction thrives. This adds an additional layer of strategy and depth to the game, where every vote can tip the balance of power and influence the game’s evolving narrative.
