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.

  • NARGUS is the main character. In Nargus’ world, Time isn’t permanent. In her world, those who have bodies live. And those who don’t, Drift.
  • In this sci-fi and fantasy world, the mind is explorable, and a MIDWAY is the portion of a person’s mind that contains memories and past lives.

What do NFTs and the series have in common?

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:

  • 3600 responsibly minted NFTs 
  • Polygon Blockchain: 0xAd4AC924FA4238BDB40f6c5E9aB6E93CBaA71BE0
  • AI-generated collection with the following trait categories: common “THE MINDED”, rare “OBRIEN”, super rare “TEMPURUS”, and legendary “TOKEN COAT


Total NFTS – 3600

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

WEIGHTED Layer Breakdown


Total MIDWAY Layers – 235

  • Blue MIDWAY Layers – 87
    18 OBRIENS
  • Red MIDWAY Layers – 75
  • Yellow MIDWAY Layers – 73

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%



Legendary TOKEN COAT Breakdown


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%.

  • 2 “TEMPURUS” have the Legendary TOKEN COAT layer with a rarity of 0.056%
  • 1 “OBRIEN” has the Legendary TOKEN COAT layer with a rarity of 0.028%
  • 31 “THE MINDED” have the Legendary TOKEN COAT layer with a rarity 0.86%

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.

The NMID Giveaway

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!
