    I look at it like this. Its all a great experiment. Putting nxt into a startup is extremely risky yet if those who are creating LITH are honorable then the reward could be very high. This new endeavor being catapulted by nxt technology is simply groundbreaking and if successful will add great value to the nxt. Could be a win win.

    @page I am never sure if it is just better to keep hold of my NXT rather then investing in things like this.

    With the actual price of nxt I rather get myself into these startups.

    This is more of an example of the LITH developers skills and not representative of the final product.

    Wow , I'm this is going to be pretty awesome. That video is already months old, and still looks great.

    from the forum:

    And just for the record -- the video shows such a micro-sliver of what Lith will be about... if you're not interested in turning goblins into blood puddles, much of the game can be spent socializing, crafting, trading/selling/arbitraging, etc.

    This game has huge potential. WoW always felt so pointless to me, for example, why try to game the auction house for some play money. With Lith, Now I can play a game and make "in-game" gold that actually has real value.

    Hey people,

    I just found this thread.

    My name is Bas (you may have heard me speak on LBT 142 about Nxt) and I am one of the founders of DORCS, too.

    I am quite amazed that Lith has already penetrated this far, seeing the site is very basic (read: crap ;) ) and we haven't even advertised the project all that much outside the Nxt Community.

    For those interested, I can say we are currently building the server prototype. This is really step one, as we are going to create a hybrid server architecture, using standard MMO tech "married" to a blockchain. This first step is to see what we can and cannot do.

    We are also hiring new artists for both ingame art and marketing art.

    We are going to start with raising funds outside the Nxt Community in earnest soon, so we now also have hired a PR firm so we are ramping up to be more noticeable.

    Once the prototype is finished (we are aiming at 8 weeks development time for that) we are going towards a real alpha, in which we can play test the gameplay.

    Creating an MMO is no small task, but we are getting a lot of good responses.

    For those interested, you can see a speech on Nxt, with a larger presentation about Lith here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NfZ8NJfd8A&feature=youtu.be

    The segment on Lith starts around 23 minutes into the video.

    I will be checking this thread regularly, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask :)

    And so, may Evil beware and may Good dress warmly and eat plenty of fresh vegetables.

    This looks great. I am very interested in any game that incorporates crypto-currency. How many DORCS exist in total? Can more be made on demand and are the devs going to be keeping some?

    You can find most of the info in this prospectus: http://www.dorcsgames.com/lith/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/LITHPlacementProspectus1.pdf

    Nxt Assets cannot be created on demand, but we have far from sold out.

    Some Assets will be held by the five founders, but we are prohibited from trading these for at least 12 months after the Assets were created on Jun 22 2014.

    Our developers are partly paid in Nxt ánd a set amount of Assets per completed task. Developers are only paid on completion of tasks and on completion of certain milestones.

    You can find details on the Asset here:

    Hey people,

    An update on our project.

    We've just launched our new site (simple, but it will scale): www.lythmmo.com

    The current status of the project is that we are very busy prototyping our server and how it will interact with our blockchain.

    We have our own internal blockchain set up now (for the Lyth internal currency) and are seeing how far we can push it, speedwise.

    We're also busy working on the client interface, which at this moment mainly consists of ripping things out and seeing what is essential. You can see the latest build here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8-cdXRYJJc&feature=youtu.be

    We also have started our last push for funding. You can find details about this on the site. We've maintained a sell wall over the last few months, but will remove this half november, if we have hit 200K Assets sold (ie. 2 million Nxt raised). If we go over: brilliant!

    If you want to keep up to date with our project, you can sign up for our newsletter (don't worry, at this moment we haven't much news yet!) or you can drop in on the nxtforums from time to time at: https://nxtforum.org/lith-the-nxt-mmo/

    We hope you will continue being interested, as we will continue to interest you.

    Kind regards,

    Bas (Damelon)
