Dalarnian Almanac: Mining Plots, Part 2

Mines of Dalarnia Mining Plots, P2

Welcome back, Dalarnians!

https://minesofdalarnia.medium.com/dalarnian-almanac-mining-plots-part-1-21f7bacc9d79

Today, we will review basic information from the first article and further discuss the following topics:

  • The 3 depth system of increasing difficulty and loot quality
  • The power level system that determines which plots and depths you can mine
  • Planet types
  • Biome types and how they will affect gameplay
  • Biome specific power levels that further restrict the plots and depths you can mine

Let’s dig in!

The Depth System

The Power Level System

Your character’s power level is determined only by their gear — equipment itself is upgraded and levelled up, there are no ‘experience points’ gained by your character. If your character possesses powerful enough equipment, they can attempt a mining run.

The Power Level System Mines of Dalarnia

How do I upgrade my equipment?

  • Players who wish to buy powerful equipment using DAR tokens as a ‘shortcut’ can do so
  • A player who wants to earn an income can systematically upgrade and sell off powerful gear on the open market (“gear farming”)
  • A player who wants to become powerful through time expended in the game can acquire many of the required resources by ‘grinding’

Now that we have discussed the depth and power level system, we will move to discuss planet types and biomes.

Planet Types

Planet Types Mines of Dalarnia

Other planet types will be added as the game world expands. These other planet types will have additional access requirements, the mechanics of which are still being finalized. There is also a possibility of future planets being created that encompass multiple types.

Each planet will be home to various different Biomes, which are a subcategory of the planet’s type.

Biomes on Terra Prime

Terra Prime Biomes Mines of Dalarnia

At launch, four Terra-specific biomes will exist:

  • Terra (standard)
  • Jungle
  • Rock
  • Crypt

Plots and depths belonging to any biome other than standard (“Terra”) will have an additional ‘biome power level’ associated with them. To mine these plots and depths, the player must use an equipment load-out that has a biome aspect power level equal or greater than this value.

Biome levels will include unique tile textures, as well as monster skins. Attempts to fight these monsters without the proper equipment will be difficult. In the future, additional biome-specific rewards, items and resources may be added.

Summary

  • In order to mine a specific plot and depth, a player must possess a high enough power level
  • For depths that belong to a specific biome, a player must also possess a high enough biome aspect power level
  • The planet type and biome together determine the nature of the monsters and other environmental hazards found
  • A player’s power levels are determined entirely by the equipment they wear
  • Equipment can be crafted, upgraded, and also bought and sold on the open market

Look out for Part 3!
