Bright Star Studios has announced that their first land sale for the Solarwood nation in Ember Sword will take place on May 27th at 17:00 UTC. This land sale will take place on their official website. They will sell approximately 12,000 land plots, starting at 0.011 ETH or $40 and all the way up to $80,000 for an entire city.
The nation of Solarwood will offer space for approximately 40,000 land parcels. Therefore this first land sale of 12,000 plots is only the beginning for Ember Sword. More sales moments will follow in the months to come. However, the prices of this first land sale will be 50% lower than the normal price.
A land plot, which is roughly the size of your game screen, is the smallest piece of land you can buy. For $40 you become a Sir or a Lady, and your land can host campsites, NPC houses, monsters, and resources. For roughly $400, or actually 0,107 ETH, you get a settlement plot. Small-sizes buildings can be placed here, for example a guild outpost or some stores.
Pay 2.139 ETH or $8,000 and you get 4 land plots that combine as a town. These allow for bigger buildings, an exchange that connects with the global gaming network. If you really have many to throw around, you could ten times as much and acquire a city. During the next sale all prizes will be doubled.
