What are Nakamigos-CLOAKS?
Nakamigos-CLOAKS are 20,000 unique characters on the blockchain with worldwide gaming rights and commercial rights.

What is the rarity structure of the collection?
Main Characters. The Main Characters are human-like characters and wolves. There are three types of human-like characters: Warriors, Knights, and Archers. Archers are a bit more rare than the Warriors and Knights. There are also sub-types such as Sorceresses and Wizards. Each human-like character is also a member of one of seven clans: Water, Sky, Earth, Steel, Crystal, Fire, and Darkness. These clans all have roughly the same numbers except for the less-common Darkness Clan.

Attribute Levels. Every character has its own unique attribute levels in three categories. These levels range from 1 to 99 (lowest to highest) and are represented by colored bars at the top left of each character:

red = strength/power

green = agility/speed

blue = magic/wisdom

Warriors tend to have high strength numbers, especially with certain traits such as shoulder gear. Archers (especially the Wild Type) are known for Agility and Speed. Knights tend to have solid overall numbers. Higher wisdom and magic levels tend to go to more experienced characters and those with Enlightened Cloaks or Wizard Cloaks. Certain items can greatly increase a character’s attribute levels, especially the various Swords and Potions.

Forms. The Main Characters can also take on unique forms, such as Undead Reaper, Possessed, or Android (Good or Evil). Archers can also appear in Wild form. Wolves have four forms: Grey Wolf, Forest Wolf, Mountain Wolf, and Arctic Wolf. The first three wolf forms are fairly common; the Arctic Wolf is much more rare and has greater strength levels than other wolves.

Rares. The Rares are six types of non-human characters: Arctic Wolf (noted above), Komodo Dragon, Yin-Yang, Cheetah, Bat, and Black Panther. Of these, Bats and Black Panthers are the rarest. The attribute levels apply to all of these characters as well. For example, Cheetahs have the highest speed/agility levels in the collection.

Items. The collection includes a variety of powerful items, some of which greatly affect attribute levels. These items include Amulets, Symbols, Swords, and Potions.

What is the rarest type of Nakamigos-CLOAKS?
Black Panthers are the rarest. Bats are also very rare. Yin-Yang, Cheetah, and Komodo Dragons are also uncommon, as is the Arctic Wolf. There are rare traits as well, including the Key of Secrets.

How many traits are there in the collection?
There are more than 200 character traits in the collection. This does not include each attribute level – if those are counted, the total is over 500.

What is the pixel dimension of each Nakamigos-CLOAKS artwork?
24 x 24. This is the same as Nakamigos. It’s also the same as CryptoPunks. The 24 x 24 dimension holds true for all Nakamigos-CLOAKS characters, including those with light emanating from the swords and potions.

What is the image resolution of each Nakamigos-CLOAKS artwork?
Each image is a 2000 x 2000px PNG.

Are there additional 1/1’s in the collection?
No. Each of the 20,000 Nakamigos-CLOAKS is unique and there are no additional 1/1’s.

How many of the 20,000 Nakamigos-CLOAKS are available to mint?
All 20,000 Nakamigos-CLOAKS are available for Early Access Mint, which is for all Nakamigos holders from the 9/19/23 snapshot. Any that remain are available for the Public Mint.

No (watch out for fakes). There is no separate Nakamigos-CLOAKS Twitter account. There is no HiFo Labs Twitter account. All announcements come from the verified Nakamigos Twitter account only: @Nakamigos.

Was there a donation to GiveDirectly?
Yes. Royalties related to the CLOAKS announcement were donated to GiveDirectly. Etherscan transaction.

Why did you change the mint price from 0.05E to FREE for holders?
A lot has gone into every pixel behind Nakamigos and CLOAKS, and we always want the focus to be on the artwork and characters. While creating CLOAKS over the past 6 months, the goal was to create an entirely distinct collection with entirely new characters and traits that retained the detailed 24 x 24 pixel art that Nakamigos are known for – and to ensure Nakamigos holders get priority over everyone when CLOAKS become available. We also wanted the mint price to be low relative to other collections, so it was set at 0.05E with priority for holders. When CLOAKS was first announced, we thought people would be excited about it all: the characters (wolves, warriors, panthers, etc.), the unique attribute levels for each character (strength/power, agility/speed, wisdom/magic), and the worldwide gaming license enabling any creator or company to incorporate the characters into a game. Instead, people were upset about the price and therefore not feeling good about Nakamigos or CLOAKS. This was the last thing we wanted, so the next morning we changed the price to free for holders. Some then suggested we actually did want people upset at Nakamigos so that more people would sell Nakamigos which would increase volume and royalties. Again, this was the last thing we wanted, and royalties related to the CLOAKS announcement were donated to GiveDirectly (Etherscan transaction). We are excited to have the focus on the artwork and characters, and we are excited for everyone to see CLOAKS revealed in full on mint day.
