LoTM Gameplay: StarMap Update I
The upcoming game "Legends of the Mara" offers a unique blend of terrestrial and celestial strategies with its latest StarMap update. While Voyagers navigate their Otherdeed Expanded as the primary game board, they'll also need to observe the constellations for future guidance. With the ancient Koda in central roles, strategic alliances will be key to fend off the menacing Shattered. The game will announce alliances both within Yuga's PFP collections and with selected third-party PFP collections, offering Voyagers the chance to recruit battle allies. These alliances will bolster the player's strength in low-tier environments, increasing the chance of success against the Shattered and potentially improving leaderboard placement. However, each Otherdeed has a limited number of ally NFT slots, necessitating wise alliance selection. More details on official alliances will be shared in future updates.
