Enter VulcanVerse and earn now.. as a Cedalion

How to use the VulcanVerse scholarship program

Cedalions wear a unique outfit in VulcanVerse

Did you know that anyone, subject to their computer meeting the minimum specification for playing (specs can be found on the VulcanVerse Discord), can enter VulcanVerse right now as a Cedalion and start earning $LAVA, even if they don’t own one of those coveted 9919 plots of land?

So what is a ‘Cedalion’? In Greek mythology, Cedalion (Classical Greek Κηδαλίων) was a servant and employee of Hephaestus in Lemnos. Hephaestus, to the Romans, was Vulcan — and so we at Vulcan Forged have taken the Cedalion name for our scholarship program.

Anyone can become a Cedalion. Being a Cedalion allows you to enter VulcanVerse using somebody else’s land; you rent the land plot NFT from them, either for free or for a charge, depending on what you want to do.

Land set aside for Cedalions to rent can be found in My Forge under the Cedalion Program heading. Here, you can browse available land and choose something that suits you, either based on VulcanVerse quadrant, length of rent, whether you will need to share $LAVA earned, whether you can build on the land you rent and course, cost in $PYR.

Rental options

You see a piece of land on the Cedalion Marketplace. This land is free to rent. The catch? There isn’t one. LAVA sharing? You simply split all the $LAVA that you earn during your time in VulcanVerse 50 / 50 with the land owner (known as the Cedalion Manager). Some rental land will allow you to earn 100% of your $LAVA earnings. Some land you will be granted the ability to build on, others you won’t be able to- you simply spawn there. You can however enjoy all of VulcanVerse otherwise, including foraging and battling with your Vulcanite.

If you have the ability to build, you’ll be able to terramorph the land, build modular houses and place assets, all possible with the materials (tip: send your Vulcanite out foraging!).
Some land comes at a cost— often only a small amount of $PYR but the price is set by the Cedalion Manager and therefore can vary.

To rent a piece of land, simply click it, then click ‘Join’ when the detailed item pops up.

The ‘Rent Land’ popup displays options available to a Cedalion looking to join VulcanVerse

So you’ve spent time in VulcanVerse and earned some $LAVA (look under Earnings in My Forge for your figures). What can you do with it? If you’ve earned above the 10,000 XP threshold — not as difficult as it sounds, especially if you’re playing other Vulcan Forged games too, you can use the VulcanDex to swap your $LAVA for $PYR or another available token. You truly can play to earn in VulcanVerse.

Own land? Become a Cedalion Manager

Things get interesting if you’re lucky enough to own a plot of land. You can rent this plot of land out to a Cedalion having set your desired options as mentioned previously. Why would you want to rent out your land? Maybe you’re going on holiday and so won’t be playing for a couple of weeks. Or maybe work or family life have taken over a little. Why not put your land to work for you? Depending on the options you have chosen, a Cedalion will either split their earned $LAVA with you or keep it all, pay a flat $PYR fee of your choosing, up front, to make use of your land- or not, be able to build on your land- or not and you specify the length of time the Cedalion can rent for.

There are three plans available for Cedalion Managers

Simply navigate to Cedalion Program in My Forge and choose a plan. Make a payment of the required $PYR and, under the My Lands tab you can choose which land you want to put up for rent, whether you want it to be Earning Share or Fixed Rent and of course specify the length of time you want to rent out your land for. Once the time is up, your land returns to you automatically. Couldn’t be simpler!
