NARGUSsMidway (NMID) is a collection of 3,600 generative “MIDWAYS” from the world of The Dream Dealer’s Daughter by author Emily Macomber. Each “MIDWAY NMID” features world-building concepts, character names, and settings drawn from the Audiothology book series. NARGUSsMidway lives on the Polygon blockchain and has 3 weighted categories: common, rare, and super rare, with an additional legendary trait.
They both represent a new medium of art, technology, and storytelling; they embrace the rare and the unknown.
Emily Macomber has been writing sci-fi and fantasy for over a decade. She believes a handful of companies and algorithms shouldn’t determine what books are available to readers. She continues to break rules and blur genres when it comes to her writing, and holders of a NARGUSsMidway NFT will create the Minded community. A group of people who believe the weird and the new should have a home too.
The Collection Breakdown:
Total NFTS – 3600
Total common THE MINDED – 3314
Total rare OBRIEN – 146
Total super rare TEMPURUS – 106
Total legendary THE MINDED – 31
Total legendary OBRIEN – 1
Total legendary TEMPURUS – 2
Each NMID in this fully minted collection features an assortment of at least four layers, including a background tied to the Audiothology book cover, a mathematical art layer representing the key concept known as “Aer”, a computer-generated “Midway” layer comprised of words and concepts drawn from the pages of the series, and a final “Token Coat” layer.
Possible BACKGROUNDS – 19
Total AER Layers *Not Weighted* – 100
18 Blue AER
59 Yellow AER
23 Red AER
Total MIDWAY Layers – 235
160 common “THE MINDED” layer options with an output of 3,349 out of 3,600 and a rarity of 93.03%
34 rare “OBRIEN” Midway layer options with an output of 147 out of 3,600 and a rarity of 4.08%
41 super rare “TEMPURUS” Midway layer options with an output of 104 out of 3,600 and a rarity of 2.89%
The final layer called “TOKEN COAT” has two trait options (a NOT Legendary trait and a Legendary trait). 3,566 NMIDS have the NOT Legendary “TOKEN COAT” trait. Only 34 out of 3,600 have the Legendary “TOKEN COAT” trait with a rarity of 0.94%.
Since the layers were chosen by AI, 31 of the Legendary TOKEN COAT layers ended up in the “THE MINDED” category.
If you have a “THE MINDED” NARGUSs Midway that has a Legendary TOKEN COAT trait, it is more rare than a super rare “TEMPURUS”, unless a “TEMPURUS” also has a Legendary TOKEN COAT layer.
Originally we were going to give away a majority of the common “The Minded” NFTs. In exchange for a free NFT, we asked people to subscribe to the Audiothology on YouTube. We have since changed direction, after being informed that asking people to subscribe in a centralized space wasn’t the best exchange for a free NFT. Thank you to those who informed us and to those who did participate!
