It is our philosophy that NFTs are first and foremost a swap for currently available technology in the video game industry. In this case, we are using the Arbitrum Nova platform as a replacement for “Kickstarter”. Our goal is to create a long-term early adopter and visionary pledge package for fans and collectors similar to what we have purchased in other games.
Metagates Archetypes are AI rendered from a repository of characters drawn by our lead designer, Diletta de Santis. Each render is hand curated and then touched up by hand. Legendaries are entirely hand-drawn.
The process takes our team about 30-40 minutes per piece and requires the labor of 4 team members combined. Low-quality items are discarded. Due to the labor involved, only 555 of these packages will be available immediately with a total supply of 5555. If the community feels there is low demand, we will allow the community to vote to shut the supply off early.
- The Archetype bundle price will be 100 USD equivalent in ETH.
- Mint will take place on the www.metagates.io website, accessible through Trove.
- Do not trust any links or direct messages!
The collection will follow the same theme as the first collection. They will establish rewards in our game that do not yield a competitive advantage and when we reach the early majority, these will be quite rare to newcomers that wish to collect them.
The Metagates Archetypes will allow a player to claim the following reward bundle in Metagates:
- Collectible PFP itself
- Early Name Claim
- In-game glow or aura
- Corresponding 3D avatar
- Mystery Lore-Based Rewards
Each of these items will be individually mintable and sellable on the open market.
The collection will include male and female Kings, Queens, Vagabonds, Rogues, Explorers, Adventurers, Wizards, Sorceresses, Merchants, Shopkeeps, and Legendary Archetypes from each category. There will be a representative from each category from each biome in Metagates.
Metagates minted 2222 “The Business” NFTs on Solana last year. These rewards were for our technological innovators and enthusiasts who believed in us before we advertised.

Some Archetypes will be available to community members who purchased “The Business” and submitted their wallets and were included in our recent snapshot. Only ~555 total PFPs from wallets were submitted.
The Archetypes will have a maximum supply of 5555. They will be minted on Arbitrum using technology from Flair! Flair’s technology will allow us to experiment with a new style of mint, allowing collectors to purchase with fiat and various digital currencies as our first attempt at onboarding Web 2 purists as well as different chains to the Arbitrum ecosystem.
