SINISTERIA Whitepaper Dear reader, This whitepaper is an attempt to take you on board of a journey. This will be an adventure that will take us through the cold crypto winter and bring us to the other side. By the end of this whitepaper, you will understand why you should bet on BooFinance and join us on our road to fortune. We know we have spent a long time developing ideas, working out the steps. But now the plan is finally there. Please indulge! - The Boo Finance Team Contents Purpose Ambition Principles NFT Characters Moves Distribution Game Battle Modes Battle Phases Game Map Ecosystem Tokens DeFi Governance Future Roadmap Ambition This document has been created as a guide to the future of BooFinance. As you may already know, BooFinance has always been about more than just yield-farming and other worn out DeFi-tropes. Since the beginning, it has been our goal to build a series of truly unique products that are not some sloppy fork of the latest hit. Therefore, it will take time and effort to get us there. In this whitepaper, we will play with open cards and share our ambitions for becoming the best NFT and gaming franchise on Avalanche, and who knows what else. The burden of proof is on us! Therefore, our main focus will be to build and develop. Hopefully, after reading this, you will have a crystal clear picture of what we're building and what we hope to achieve with it. Our product line will mainly revolve around the following: Crypto Gaming NFTs Decentralized Finance Principles Welcoming players BooFinance is for everyone. So even if you don't have the largest holdings in crypto, there will be a game for you to play. We are designing the game such that the barrier to entry is a low as possible. Therefore, we make the minting Summoners NFTs entirely FREE! This doesn't mean there are no benefits to be gained if you decide to invest some of your holdings into your characters. We will have mechanics in place that ensure that those who are here to play the game get to be the winners. Play2Earn not Pay2Earn Wealth will get you leverage in most crypto games today. Even when the games says its P2E. In BooFinance, wealth will only help you in terms of raising your characters' levels to max out your level-caps. On the other hand, the benefits gained from time leverage will get you a real edge in battle. Battle is essentially the way $BOOFI will be redistributed among its holders. Play well and you'll win. If you win, you'll earn. Multiple pathways to profit The better economic rewards come at the end. The leaderboards, PvP battle modes and end-game content will make playing the game worthwhile. Buy, train and sell NFT characters or keep them to gain exclusive access to profit- sharing pools that maximise your gains. More playing and less clicking! Summoners NFT Characters Battle Stats Every summoner has six stats that determine how well it does in battle. In designing the game, we have found splitting the attack and defense stats into physical and magical to be a good way to bring more complexity and strategy to the gaming experience. Which is something a lot of crypto games are currently missing. bASE-STATS IN-BATTLE STATS Constitution Hitpoints Constitution determines the maximum number of hitpoints your character starts a battle with. The amount of damage your character can take before dying physical force in battle Attack determines the damage your character deals using physical attacks physical defense stamina Defense determines the damage reduction from physical attacks done to your The amount of energy your character character has to fight. If it drops Magical force to zero, defense and magic Special attack determines the damage defense stats will drop and your character deals using magical certain moves may be attacks unavailable. Magical defense Special defense determines the damage reductions from magical attacks done to your character Speed Speed determines the which NFT gets to move first. This can be (de)buffed. partnerships randomness The game will make use of a verifiable randomness function (VRF) which helps make the game more unpredictable and fun. We're happy to announce that we will be partnering with Chainlink who will provide us with such random numbers. This way, the game can be fair for everyone without exploits. The randomness functionality will be used in the NFT mints, damage calculation of the character moves in battle. nfT communities & marketplaces BooFinance will actively be seeking other NFT projects to collaborate with. Offering whitelist spots for collaborations and promotions. We are thinking of implementing our own NFT marketplace INSIDE of the game. While making sure that the collection will be available at external NFT trading platforms. Generating Base-stats & Rarity As you may have learned two pages back, base-stats not only determine short-term capability, but also the long- term capability of your Summoners NFT. This page will explain how your character will get its base-stats. Upon minting your Summoners NFT, it will be assigned a base-stat for every attribute. We use Chainlink's Verifiable Random Function (VRF) to generate a random number. This random number will determine the base-stat's value according to the Pareto distribution (also known as the 80/20 rule), which is empirically common in many human activities and natural phenomena. Total 18-20 21-24 25-30 31-39 40-50 Base-Stats Chance ≈ 60% ≈ 30% ≈ 7.5% ≈ 2.4% ≈ 0.1% Rarity common uncommon rare epic legendary Aesthetics The NFTs are all sketched and drawn by hand, but will have an algorithmically generated composition. The artwork is part realistic part cartoon. This style is called 'cell-shaded'. All the Summoners NFTs fit within the theme of Victorian-style Halloween. So expect vampires, werewolves, undead, witches, reanimated corpses, demons and of course ghosts! The artwork is done by the magnificent designer and artist Leonardo Aguayo-Liebes. Follow @leoaguayoliebes on Instagram or visit www.leonardoliebes.com to check out his work! NFT moves There will be several different moves for your character to use. Each move does damage in a different way. You will have to think of a clever strategy to best your opponent and win all the glory! There will be a catalog of moves upon the release of the PvP game, including the moves that adhere to the following examples: Parry: A high chance of dodge with a weak attack back Drain Health: Does 20% additional damage in next 2 turns Steal Health: Gains health based on amount of damage that the previous attack did. Character Distribution As was mentioned earlier, the Summoners NFTs can be minted for free. All you need is to receive a minting token (SUMMON). These SUMMON tokens will be airdropped as follows: During our token-launch, we promised that early believers would receive a chance to mint an NFT. This we call the 'Halloween Airdrop'. This accounts for roughly 1500 individuals. For those who have harvested > 1 BOOFI from the Well of Souls, one token will be allocated. This accounts for roughly 1300 individuals. Those who hold high roles in Discord (Golden Ghost, King Boo etc) one token will be allocated. This accounts for roughly 15 individuals. Those who own a Ghost Hat CryptoPuffy (NFT collection) one token will be allocated. This accounts for roughly 80 individuals. The remaining 438 will be distributed among partner communities and marketing incentives. The other 3333 SUMMON tokens will be given out as rewards, for which the exact terms are yet to be determined. Airdrop Amount Yield & Game Achievements Amount Halloween 1500 BLOOD Campaign 666 WoS 1300 Well of Souls 1334 Discord 15 NFT achievements 333 Cryptopuffies 80 Game achievements 1000 Partners 438 Total 3333 + 3333 6666 total Summoners NFTs in Collection #1 tHE GAME Battle Modes Demo The game will have several different battle modes. These will be released over time. First a playable demo of the game will be released. This does not yet include any web3 integrations. Player vs environment The first battle mode to be released is PvE. In this battle mode, you will be able to use your Summoners NFT to fight against bots to gather resources. You can play alone or hang out with multiple players, but not fight against them. Juggernaut The next battle mode is the Juggernaut. In this battle mode you will be able to fight other people's character NFTs. It's a bit like king of the hill, where you win a battle and then other opponents might try to beat you and claim their spot. The difference being that the king of the hill gets a series of different boosts and buffs. Player vs player Finally, the PvP battle mode will allow you to do 1v1 battles with or without stakes. By this time, we hope the game has been tested and tried and players know what strategies to use. This battle mode will allow you to achieve glory and wealth. Battle phases Every battle follows a standard sequence of phases. Every battle phase starts with a move selection. Each player is presented with a menu to pick either one of four moves, to bribe the other player to pay them off (which will spare their NFT) or to use a consumable item from their bag. After a move has been chosen, the character with the highest speed stat gets to move first. After both character have carried out their moves, a new move-selection phase starts. When one character has run out of HP, it dies and the NFT will be transferred to the Revival Pool, where it can be revived by the original owner by paying tribute. It will lose a level and the $BOOFI staked needed to gain that level will go to the winner. If the player doesn't revive the NFT, it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. If the player forfeits via bribe, the player can select an amount to bribe the other player which will be paid out upon accepting. If the bribe is not accepted, the opponent gets to make their move. Here is an mockup of what the in-battle UI would look like: Game map The world of Sinisteria will feel very much like a multi-player version of evil Pokémon. However, the world of Sinisteria will have much more to offer in game-modes, different areas to explore and conquer. With every release, a new area will be added to the map. Each area has NPCs to interact with, dungeons to conquer and resources to hunt for. The flickering flames and moving mobs will make the game map feel very much alive. There will be famous landmarks to interact with, such as the Well of Souls, the Vampire Farms and the Revival Pool. The Well of Souls is where you can do everything prestige related. Your prestige determines your stats, earning power and much more. In the Well of Souls you can also interact with your zBOOFI that is staked inside. The Vampire Farms are where you can collect yield and train your characters. ecoSystem Token & utility The BOOFI token will play a central role within the BooFinance ecosystem. There will be multiple ways in which the token shall be used. All ways ensure the deflation of token. NFT staking To make your Summoners NFT more powerful in battle, you can stake BOOFI into the NFT. Its level will rise and its abilities shall become more powerful. In terms of tokenomics, this means there will be 6666 private staking pools. To ensure maximum gains, you need to get far in terms of game content. Which means you will eventually have to invest some of your BOOFI tokens into your Summoners NFT More BOOFI tokens shall be staked and less will be available on the open market. Purchasing nft moves After minting, your Summoners NFT will have a basic set of moves. These moves can be upgraded by becoming eligible to buy new moves after playing the game. On the after-market, moves can be resold only for BOOFI. Reviving your nft Your Summoner's survival may depend on the amount of BOOFI you've staked into it. When a battle is not going as planned, you can bribe the other player with a certain amount of BOOFI to end the battle prematurely. If this doesn't happen and your NFT is defeated, you will be presented with the choice to revive it (burning a portion of BOOFI staked inside of it relative to its level) or it will be sent to the revival pool. When it is sent to the revival pool, you will have 36 hours to revive it. The starting revival amount is equal to the initial revival amount but increases with 1% every hour until the time is up. Once this happens, it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder and you will be excluded from participating. Defi 3.0 BooFinance is not only about NFTs and Gaming. It is also about innovating on DeFi mechanisms. The Vampire Farms are a good example of this. After the game has been released, the BooFinance team will continue to innovate in this field. The team is always thinking how new (or old) mechanisms like bonding and other such things can help our investors make positive returns from our protocol. The eLDER POOL One of the ideas on the table is the Elder Pool. This will be a private pool, only accessible to owners of first generation Summoners NFT. At the end of every battle, 1% of the bribe, revival or winning auction bid is dropped into this pool. You can stake your first generation Summoners NFT into the Elder Pool to collect rewards that are exclusively for the early believers. The Elder Pool will remain in future updates. Second generation Summoners NFTs will not have this privilege. By implementing this feature, we hope to raise the floorprice of the Summoners NFTs as well as reward early believers indefinitely. Governance The future of the protocol belongs to the community. That's why we've built the possibility for voting rights into the BOOFI token. After the game has been launched and earned its place within the Avalanche ecosystem, BooFinance will delegate parts of its decision- making, just like any big projects do. Even though the specifics are not known at this moment, there are discussions within the team to grant Elder Pool beneficiaries voting rights on special decisions. The most major decisions will eventually be made by the BooCouncil. To get onto the BooCouncil, you will need to stake at least 1 zBOOFI into it. There special voting escrow tokens will be emitted. These tokens are non-tradeable and thus will not be directly worth anything besides influence. Any BooCouncil member can send in proposals. These proposals can be voted on by other council members. The team will then evaluate them and work out a counter-proposal (such that it fits within the ecosystem) that will be presented to all the BooCouncil'ers. After a vote on whether to approve or decline it, the decision will be executed accordingly. Roadmap Development is a time-consuming and difficult process. Especially in game-development. If the game isn't fun to play from the start, chances are it never will be. That's why we're comfortable sacrificing speed for quality.
