Purpose of a Shaman

Upon induction within tribe, a SHAman takes an oath, ensuring that the rightful belongings of all humans are safely bestowed to heirs - unimpeded. However, SHAman of VulcanVerse have strange ways of ensuring inheritance is secured... first they must visit the Temple of Zeekeez and speak with SendRock, the Oracle of the SHAman, to unlock the frequency best used for attunement of SafeKeys. After obtaining the proper insights, SHAman must then visit Nebula to channel the magical aura around each SafeKey, for there are superior forces in VulcanVerse that are capable of disintegrating the keys without having the proper enchantments instilled. A SHAman cares deeply about family and will often refer to members of the village as 'brother' or 'sister'.

Identification

SHAmans can often be identified by their blueish-purple colored armor, weaponry, badges, scrolls/seals and/or talismans, though not every Shaman will display this particular design. The village population consists of numerous - rumored to be hundreds of thousands - SHAman with mage-like powers, known for their knowledge of entities that exist beyond the afterlife. Few, of the numerous, SHAman have evolved their conscious to the level needed for spiritual ascension. Only those who take the path of ascension are worthy of unlocking their true potential by linking with ancestral entities. Near the path's end, the SHAman obtains a SafeKey that reveals cryptic messages, leading to an exponential pattern of new paths till ultimate consciousness is achieved.

Overview of SHAmanVillage

The SHAmanVillage is a communal project, directed by Nebula_Matrix, being constructed by members of the Safe Haven and Vulcan Forged community. Scattered throughout VulcanVerse are Landmarks and outposts of the SHAmanVillage, known for housing rare artifacts that can be acquired by completing quests. All quests and in-game purchasable items within the SHAmanVillage must be purchased with $SHA, which will be executed in the form of smart contracts via blockchain.

Landmarks of Village

The SHAmanVillage encompasses many SHAman Tribes that all share the common goal of providing decentralized inheritance solutions to the warriors and heroes of Vulcan, amongst all four quadrants. Landowners of VulcanVerse can join the ranks of the SHAman through a mysterious initiation rite, held by Night Angel and Day Devil, which will then allow landowners to nominate their land for landmarks and establish SHAman Outposts.

The Citadel of the SHAmanVillage is located 12 plots south of Vulcan City, between the Volcano of Thanatos and the Land From Which No-One Returns, which has been designated as the meeting grounds to initiate questlines, obtain tickets to events, and purchase/establish decentralized inheritance plans with Inheriti. Multiple Landmarks and/or outposts are scattered amongst the four quadrants of VulcanVerse, which can/will be utilized as plots for questlines and/or special events/buildings/amenities.

SHAman Village Questlines

Nebula Matrix, is known for setting challenges for other members of the SHAman community. Two reported quests that Nebula is devising ready for when Vulcan opens the gates to VulcanVerse are “#SHAmanColosseum” and “Smuggler’s Cove”. Humans are able to approach Nebula should they be interested in becoming a SHAman or taking on a SHAman challenge.

SHAmanic Twins of Clardy

Long ago, SHAman of Clardy performed rituals with mythological creatures throughout the realms of Vulcan, bestowing this brave warrior with mage-like powers, resulting in his offspring displaying abnormal physiques and magical powers capable of enchanting even the darkest of elves. The twins were separated at birth, with SHAman of Clardy nowhere to be found, one in Arcadia and the other in the Underworld. Each Twin was reared by magical elves, to be heir of the kingdom, who sensed the strong powers of the baby SHAmans. The "Arcadian Elves of Light" named their heir "SHAmanic Prince of Light", while the "Warlocks of Hades" named their heir "SHAmanic Prince of Darkness".

Temple of Zeekeez

Quests derived from Nebula_Matrix novels increase in difficulty as the user progresses throughout the Lore, which is when they can visit Sendrock, the Oracle of the #SHAman, for clues and guidance on the remainder of their quest. The location of this Temple will be revealed to those who pass the test, more information coming soon.

Overview of the #SHAmanColosseum

The SHAmanColosseum Questline is composed of multiple pilgrimages that challenge SHAman in unfathomable ways and enable them to unlock their true potential. Each Pilgrimage has a map, which reveals the location of all colosseums scattered throughout the four quadrants of VulcanVerse, informing combatants of which champion must be defeated first. The SHAman is challenged to make their way through each Colosseum, obtaining an item and sigil each time a champion is defeated, until they have defeated all champions and obtain the final item and sigil of the pilgrimage.

  • The path sees the combatant receive a scroll from a mysterious SHAman Oracle:

“The power you seek lies within, follow your destiny and become the #UltimateSHAmanWarrior”

♦ Colosseum 2 - SHAmanic Spike of Wisdom - Pilgrimage 1

Mauve Ungula (Purple Hoof) was the name given to a majestic Soter, who once was protector of all SHAman within Arcadia. However, a fortnite after the battle of Ambrossia, Soter's heart was enwrapped by the evil aura of an Eldritch Nakamoto Bandit. The impurity can only be relinquished by Mauve Ungula in a SHAmanic spiritual rite performed by GeoKurt and Nebula. When Nebula and GeoKurt were about to perform the ritual, SCHIFFy Chieffy - Commander of the Arcadian Nakamoto Bandit Tribe, known for his hate of Bitcoin and corruption of the central banking industry - ordered the Eldritch to incant an "Underworld of Hades Scribe" to the battle field. This disrupted the Arcadian forces of the ritual and empowered SCHIFFy Chieffy with an aura from the underworld. While yielding the forces of the Underworld, SCHIFFy CHieffy called on Hades to permit the release of his TrapJaw, who then was swiftly summoned and sucked the soul from GeoKurt. As GeoKurt felt the life draining from him, he threw his SafeKey to Nebula and vanished soon after. Nebula summoned a Charon and fleed while his champion defeated the foes. When Nebula returned to the Tree of Inheriti, he plugged in the SafeKey to retrieve GeoKurt's essence. In usual times, a SHAman would utilize SafeKeys to store their inheritance for heirs - which GeoKurt had wisely accomplished - but during times of war, SHAman are know for their battle-ready SafeKey, which is a backup of their avatar-consciousness. As Nebula plugged in GeoKurt's battle-ready SafeKey, he was ambushed by the Bandits once more... SCHIFFy Chieffy instantly clubbed Nebula upside the head as Charon, two Velosina and a TrapJaw were summoned. Nebula awoke to SCHIFFy Chieffy fleeing and GeoKurt being enslaved by the Eldrich, who ordered a Harpy to grasp him by the talons and fly to the Secret Liar for captivity. As Nebula approached the "Verdant Farmlands", he saw the possessed Mauve Ungula wrecking havic on the farmland of nearby centaurs. Knowing there was no way to purify the heart of Mauve Ungula without GeoKurt, Nebula constructed a Colosseum on GeoKurt's property, which would be capable of holding Mauve Ungula once Nebula left a talisman of protection to mix with the magic of GeoKurt's family tree. As Nebula studied the behavior of Mauve Ungula, he noticed that the increasing rage could kill the Legend, which is why he deemed fit arena tournaments to ease the rage of Mauve Ungula. After the first battle, Nebula noticed a magenta-aura radiating from a spike that broke off an antler of Mauve Ungula and when he touched it, a vision revealed the location of the Nakamoto Bandit's Secret Liar! Before leaving to rescue GeoKurt and gathering the Council, Nebula told the Druids, Dryads, Faeries and Sprites of what he witnessed...

Druids, Dryads, Faeries and Sprites from the "Dales of Leaf and Stream" have spoken great tales to SHAman around the Tree of Inheriti, which is located within the "Deep Forrest" near Outposts of the SHAmanVillage in Arcadia:

Thee must obtain a Magenta-Spike from the antler of a Soter... only then will thee inherit the wisdom of all ancestral SHAman

Overviewed Smuggler’s Cove

Smuggler's Cove is a questline that gets updated every 6-months, which will include simple NFTs for the minor quests leading up to the grand quest which will bestow the Smuggler's Cove Badge. The Smuggler's Cove Badge artwork will be utilized as a sigil on every NFT for authenticity, while the badge provides discounts to the Smuggler's Cove Black Market, amongst other perks yet to be determined. Black Markets of Smuggler's Cove, located at each cove, are only accessible to those who have the Black Market Coin NFT whitelisted to their address. The market offers unique items smuggled by SHAman across the quadrants of Vulcan, which can only be obtained in the Black Market. It has been said that each Smuggler has a vulcanite guarding the entrance to their Cove, beware of the beast, for it hath been starved more than a fortnite ago.


Start of the Questline
All SHAman must visit the SHAman Harbor for obtaining the treasure map created every 6-months, which will reveal the location of all Coves and the total number of quests.

Multiple location-types:
-Harbors
-Coves
-Buried SafeKeys containing treasure (forage spots)
-Ship wrecks
-Coastline/riverside plots
-Lakes/oasis, dried up lakes, and other niche plot locations.

Concept: Every 6-months (possibly quarterly or yearly), the questline is reset with new challenges and NFTs to reward players that complete the tasks. The only way to obtain the Smugglers Cove NFT of each 6-month period is by completing the quest of every cove within the #SHAmanVillage. Each cove will have a quest, which is created by working with other #SHAman plots or singularly. Each quest has a storyline and interactive map, which provides clues for the locations of hidden treasure that the player must obtain and return to the NPC of the cove. Once the required items are given to the Non-Playable Character, the player will receive the badge of that cove and a rare NFT (rare NFTs have 200 editions and is first come first served, player 201 and greater will receive common NFTs). When all badges are collected the player returns to the #SHAmanVillage to display badges and exchange them for the Smugglers Cove Badge and rare NFT (this item will only be available to the first 100 people that complete the questline, all others will receive common NFTs - cool artwork NFTs that have a cove/smuggler vibe).


Travellers owning waterfront land are able to take part in this questline, though at present, very little is known about it.

How to Read Rarity and Origin of NFTs within the SHAmanVillage

Nebula_Matrix's Series of Novels for the SHAmanVillage

Known SHAman and scribe, Nebula Matrix, is presently documenting SHAman history into a series of novels that will be available for humans in VulcanVerse to read and understand the significance of the SHAman and SHAman Village.

Origin of the SHAman and the Nakamoto Bandits: Recovering the SafeKeys to Reveal the…

History of the SHAman

Long ago, global governments secretly enslaved all mortals by centralizing financial institutions, further limiting peer to peer transactions and imposing more fees with less APR for funds stored in a bank account. A mysterious figure, by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, developed an ingenious system that uses a blockchain to process and record all transactions, allowing complete transparency of where funds are transferred and stored. The system required the creation of a native currency to run the blockchain, Bitcoin $BTC, which has a limited supply of 21 million coins that can never be altered. These coins must be held on a wallet, which has its own receiving/sending address to route transactions, and private keys for recovering the wallet if ever lost/damaged. In the early adoption of Bitcoin, some users were irresponsible with storing a backup of their private keys in a safe location, while others lost their wallets and private keys due to natural disasters or unforeseen events, which resulted in the loss of access to their currency. Wouldn’t it be nice if somebody created a decentralized solution to digital inheritance of private data, which could also be used as an emergency backup for the initiator?

With the financial security of all at risk, four brave souls accepted their quest during the period of time known as “Crypto Winter” (4 year bear market) and began building the #DeFi products of Safe Haven:

  • Logino- “Guardian of Safe Haven”
  • Jurgen- “Brain of the Blockchain”
  • Andy- “Andry the Coding Warrior”
  • Ambrota- “King of SHAmbrosia”


Along the way, alliances were made that allowed the community of Safe Haven to unfathomably grow during the three years of developing the decentralized inheritance solution, known as Inheriti. These valiant individuals came to a consensus and agreed to call themselves SHAman, which signifies one that assists in protecting the financial freedom of others by teaching them about the only DeFi solution to digital inheritance:

  • Chubby- “Chubby SHAman”
  • TMCCLARDY- “SHAman of Clardy”
  • Hurls310- “Hurler of SHA”
  • Tim- “Guardian of Archeron”
  • Nebula_Matrix- “Guardian of the SHAman" aka Nebula
  • EriQue- “SHAman of Sparta”


On September 5th of 2020, Nebula forged the #SHAmanCouncil with 19 SHAman. The primary goal of the Council is to increase social awareness about products/services of Safe Haven. The #SHAmanCouncil accomplishes this by hosting giveaway events and competitions, amongst other communal growth strategies.

Prologue

After the Community Edition of Inheriti was released on the 25th of September, in the year of 2020, enemies of the Nakamoto Tribe, known as the Nakamoto Bandits, kidnapped the Prince of Safe Haven and their identities remain a mystery till this day. The Bandits were after the inheritance of Satoshi Nakamoto and thought they could divulge information from the young prince. Ever since the disappearance of the Prince, the supply of magic in SHAmanVillage has decreased and all SHAman are having difficulty controlling their Vulcanites, making the land of $SHA vulnerable. To restore the power of all that is $SHA, Satoshi Nakamoto appointed Nebula to hide 20 SafeKeys that reveal the location of the Ledger holding the missing 4,000,000 $BTC from the circulating supply. Nebula, with the help of the Guardians of Inheriti, have hidden the SafeKeys of Satoshi Nakomoto with their fiercest Vulcanites standing guard.
