LiteBringer is a mixture of genres in one. It is according to developers, Ciipsoft, ‘a trading simulation and idle game with RPG elements. An immortal game where the players have all the power’.
The game turns around adventures and quests in the land of Asirenia. In Asirenia you can send your characters out on adventurous quests, interact buying and selling items and make real money.
As with other blockchain games, it uses the Play to Earn concept, where you earn in game items through playing. You can then buy and sell these items in the marketplace to other gamers, for the cryptocurrency, Litecoin (LTC).
When you buy and sell your items, the transactions are paid for in fractions of LTC, known as Lites. These are of monetary value, with the price of 1 Litecoin at around $150, this week.

About LiteBringer Blockchain Game
When LiteBringer says it is fully decentralized it is truly so. Therefore, when you are playing, the game runs completely on the Litecoin blockchain with no server required. This is unlike others such as Enjin gaming platform.
This means, having no centralized server gives you, the player, far greater control over the direction of the game. Thus, you are no longer chained to a central server; you are the one in control of your account.
Therefore, each time you make a move in the game it is recorded on the Litecoin blockchain.
Meaning, you will incur a small transaction fee. You will pay this in the afore mentioned Lites.

Note that, it is essential that you keep these safe. If you lose the key, it will be impossible for you to retrieve your in-game items and rewards.
So, make sure that you download the pdf with both your private address and key, and keep them safe.

After, you have downloaded the game you can begin to create your characters on LiteBringer blockchain game.
Now as a beginner, you can choose from 3 types of character: Fighter, Rogue and Sorcerer. Then as you progress through the quests, there are the advanced characters types of Assassin, Bard and Pirate, which you can create after reaching level 30.
Once, you have chosen your character click on the ‘create’ icon and you are on your first quest.
Quests and loot on LiteBringer blockchain game
At this point, you may have to wait several minutes for the quest to start (you will see a ‘preparing quest’ icon). The quest itself may take several blocks to complete (you will see an ‘on quest’ icon).
On completion of the test, you will be rewarded with 3 items and on some occasions you may receive loot.
You know, you have completed a quest when there is a ‘finished tag on the lower right.
LiteBringer monsters and power
So, as in other fantasy games, you need to defeat monsters in order to advance. In LiteBringer blockchain game, you need to have at least, equal in power to the monster, you will be up against.
If, you do not have enough power, you will have to equip your hero with more powerful weaponry.
Equipping your hero
At this point, it is necessary for you to click on your inventory icon to add more power to your hero.
Here you will find the 3 items you received for completing the last quest. To equip your hero, drag the items from your inventory into the corresponding slots in your character’s profile.
At this moment in time, you should see your power increase. Once, you have equal or more power click ‘send on quest’ icon. Again, you wait to the quest has finished and collect your rewards.
I would recommend replaying theses quests a few times to collect useful rewards with which to equip your character further.
In order to upgrade, you will need, what are known as Elemental Stones. There are 8 types of elemental stone, and you will need to complete quests to receive them.
You will need to complete quests that reward you with the correct stone to upgrade your equipment. The type of element you require for the upgrade is shown on the upper left side.
You can find each type of elemental stone in an assigned Shrine. Inside the shrines are monster that drop the stones.
Again, I would advice you to repeat these quests to accumulate a supply for upgrades.
Now, you have everything you need, return to your inventory. Next, click on the item you wish to upgrade and choose upgrade.
That’s all folks
You should now have a basic knowledge of what is required to get ahead in the game. I’m sure by the time you get to the advanced classes, you will no more about LiteBringer blockchain game than can be written in a short article. I will leave the rest of the learning to you.
There is one glaring (for me anyhow) negative about the game in its present form.
Each time you open the game to play, you must redownload it. This is very frustrating and time wasting.
However, a recent blog release says that they are working on an upgrade that will only require updates from the last time you played.
As we have stated before in many articles, blockchain gaming is how games will be played in the future. LiteBringer blockchain game which has no centralized server and runs completely on the Litecoin network is another that is paving the way to the future.
All in all, you should find the game rewarding, in more ways than one.
You can download the game at their website.
