Zen Stove's New Stage of Gameplay Mechanics - "湑沽酒肆" is about to commence. The details are as follows, please inform our users. Thank you!
Dear adventurers, your long wait is finally over as the renovation of 湑沽酒肆 is complete, and we are ready to open our doors! Situated halfway up Miaoguang Mountain, our tavern offers breathtaking views of cloud-covered peaks, melodious bird songs, majestic pine cliffs, and the reflection of azure skies in clear waters. We sought the assistance of a scholar from the village below to name our establishment, who chose two characters from the ancient "Book of Songs" in the verse "There is wine to filter me, and none to buy me." "湑" refers to filtering wine, while "沽" means buying wine. This vividly portrays the harmonious scene where our esteemed Taoist adventurers gather at the tavern to enjoy wine and camaraderie.
2.The World of "湑沽酒肆":
"湑沽酒肆" is the first set of gameplay introduced by Zen Stove. Once Taoist adventurers attain their "Daoshi" status, they embark on adventures in the Six Realms, facing trials and challenges. Upon returning to the tavern, adventurers refine their "Daoshi Identity" to create their own "Neidan" (e.g., Beast Realm Neidan, Hungry Ghost Realm Neidan, etc.). The ethereal Neidan can be materialized into unique "Ingredients" (e.g., Thundering Relics for the Celestial Realm, Godslayer Blades for the Asura Realm). These individual ingredients have no effect on their own. However, when materials from different dimensions interact, the laws of reality and energy are torn asunder, leading to the creation of the ultimate product, the "Waidan," through countless trials and tribulations in the Zen Stove.
"湑沽酒肆" exists within the realm of Taoist adventures, following the unique laws of this universe. At fixed intervals, the entire realm experiences a "輪迴" event. During this event, all Taoist adventurers receive a 1:1 distribution of Daoshi Mystery Boxes, granting them the opportunity to embark on new adventures in different realms, refine various Neidan, collect diverse materials, and create more Waidan.
"Rome wasn't built in a day," and the cultivation of Waidan is no different. To become a master alchemist and refine true elixirs, all adventurers must meditate and ponder the following excerpt from the "Tai Xu Zhen Jing," passed down by successive abbots of the Qingtian Temple:
"Three feet of ice is not formed in a single day; the cultivation of Waidan is also not achieved overnight.If you wish to become a master alchemist and refine true elixirs,All adventurers must calm their hearts and contemplate the selected teachings from the "Tai Xu Zhen Jing" passed down by successive abbots of the Qingtian Temple."
If you have diligently studied the "Tai Xu Zhen Jing" and have not given up at this point, congratulations! You are just one step away from mastering the lost art of Waidan in the real world! According to the "Tai Xu Zhen Jing," the art of Waidan is divided into two major schools: Yin-Yang and Rakshasa. These two schools have different Waidan formulas. The Yin-Yang school believes that true Waidan can only be achieved by mastering the two extremes of matter and energy, balancing Yin and Yang, and aligning with the natural order. The Rakshasa school believes that true Waidan lies in transforming the decayed into the miraculous and turning suffering into light. For thousands of years, these two schools have been evenly matched and have been enemies due to their differing ideologies.
Each Waidan requires the selection of one formula from the two schools, but this does not mean that practitioners are permanently bound to a particular school. If the materials are sufficient, practitioners can use both formulas to refine Waidan. Here are the formula manuals for the two schools:
[某善道] is one of the top three ingredients chosen by the practitioner. Each cycle, one of the [某惡道] (lower three paths) will be randomly redeemed and become the formula for Yin-Yang. Due to the relative scarcity of the Good Path, the Yin-Yang school balances the relatively expensive formula requirements through its flexibility.
The Rakshasa school requires the synthesis of two different Evil Path ingredients to create Waidan. As the Rakshasa school does not use the relatively scarce Good Path formula, it requires a larger quantity of relatively common ingredients to synthesize Waidan.
Although the formulas of the two schools are known, the specific quantity requirements for each ingredient will vary with each cycle. During each cycle, the monks of Qingtian Temple will seek guidance from the Zen Furnace and announce the newly designated Evil Path and the required quantities of each ingredient. Waidan is the final product in the current stage of Shugujiusi, but it will play a crucial role in upcoming scenes and expansions. Therefore, each cycle represents a chance for great wealth!
4. Disclosure of expansion pack of "修羅場"
《湑沽酒肆》(Shu Gu Jiu Si) will soon meet with all the adventurers, and we can finally announce the upcoming second gameplay mode, "修羅場" (Xiu Luo Chang), which is currently under development. If "湑沽酒肆" is more like an experience of gathering around a stove to brew tea, then "修羅場" is, as the name suggests, a battlefield of competition and fights, where you can earn higher rewards than in the tea house. More specific information about "修羅場" will be gradually released as the development progresses.
Since "修羅場" utilizes the new ERC-6551 technology, bringing unprecedented NFT gamefi experiences to adventurers, the Zone Stove team is working hard to complete the development, implementation, design, and overall strategy. They have made numerous changes and reevaluations to ensure the best experience. We believe that innovation and the spirit of the game are what truly matter. We strive to provide adventurers with meaningful gameplay and profitable opportunities that are worth looking forward to. Thank you for your patience and trust!
