The next siege

RPCiege: Siege 5, Space Continuum starts on December 4th! This siege consists of four individual skirmishes, all completed with the Soroban smart contract platform on the Stellar network. Each challenge will focus on helping the player understand various aspects of Soroban’s state archival model.

Let’s get into some details.

Siege 5 schedule & skirmishes

New skirmishes will be released between December 4th and December 8th and will challenge players to do the following:

  • In Skirmish 11 (released on December 4th at 1 p.m. EST), you’ll have to bump a contract and its storage;
  • In Skirmish 12 (released on December 5th at 8 p.m. EST), you’ll work with Soroban’s different storage types;
  • In Skirmish 13 (released on December 7th at 9 a.m. EST), you’ll need to bump a contract again — but this time using a different method;
  • And finally, in Skirmish 14 (released on December 8th at 1 p.m. EST), you’ll restore an expired data entry back to the ledger.

As with previous sieges, all players who complete each skirmish successfully will get NFT playing cards that depict characters unique to Siege 5 (check out other cards you can collect by playing previous skirmishes in this display tool created by vinamo).

But that’s not all you can get…

The story continues…

And, of course, the lore endures. You’ve conquered warlords and wildlings, monsters and mercenaries. And you’ve emerged victorious against the more subtle menaces. But your adventure is not over yet. In fact, it’s only just begun. You’ve decided it’s time to enlist an ally in the form of the acclaimed archaeologist Blossom Bernice Breydenblach (Bee). But there’s one problem: she’s in space.

In RPCiege: Siege 5, Space Continuum, you will travel to the cosmos to locate Bee and bring her back down to Earth.

So ready your typin’ fingers and fire up your dancin’ shoes, for RPCiege starts again in one week! Good luck!
