Occulta Novellia takes place in a surreal horror multiverse with each new set of collectibles being released to incorporate new short stories, building up the many facets of it.
The first set of NFTs serves as an introduction to the Regalia pangaea, introducing some of its major factions.
Storylines may be linear or choice-based. Collectibles are earned based on completion of the campaigns, or specific actions. This provides one mechanic to build a library of NFTs for multiplayer use.
Stories are told in dialogue / battle / dialogue / … sequences similar to Fire Emblem.
Map of Regalia
The Regalia pangaea is divided into two distinct hemispheres. The lower hemisphere Aphantasia is cursed and uninhabitable, reaching temperatures as low as -1000C. The upper hemisphere is rich of life, inhabited by two competing kingdoms: Grevania and Phanamis.
Remnants of a mythological society litter Regalia, but they’ve all but vanished. Many of the structures make little architectural sense, and are impossible to traverse or enter. These ruins are concentrated at the equator of Regalia, forming a belt called the Brink. Which can be travelled only to a degree, as the temperatures becomes too cold during the approach of Aphantasia.
The Atrium of Forms is a well-known ruin, which brings out latent talent in Regalians who can be trained to operate. Regalians who can operate are called talented. Typically, this is restricted to weaker physical effects and has serious neurological implications on operators.
Those descended from Grevania may have talent, while the people of Phanamis instead rely on advanced engineering.
Some say that the Brink resembles a wall, as if a massive battle occurred long ago.
After an event at the Atrium of Forms, a girl has become possessed by a mysterious entity: Ten Thousand Guns. Time will tell what its true intentions are. She has disappeared through a mural in the atrium, leaving to a place rumored to resemble a massive garden. This should be impossible, as the mural leads directly to the wasteland Aphantasia.
The Occulta Novellia singleplayer game focuses on immersive stories. These are the basis for the NFTs minted.
To begin, there is one campaign for each major faction: Operator’s Guild, Phanamites, and Grevans.
Each campaign is based on a Novella that is released chapter-by-chapter over a period of time. These are adapted to in-game dialogue sequences, playable areas, NFTs, and mechanics.
