Ember Sword is an online game to which buyers can buy Land Plots based on NFTs. Land Plots are sold in parcels of 1x1 to 20x20 containing a set of land plots of different types containing amongst others a full city. 

The game is still in development, therefore not yet released,  and this may result in changes to the different Land Plots, capabilities and usage. Smart contracts grant the right to the specific plot purchased and only that. The game is still under development, therefore elements, features, characters can change things such as but not limited to visuals etc.
