Stag Alliance – Cardano NFT
A sci-fi lore that will introduce an unimaginable new reality.
Have you ever imagined how the world would be if another species became stronger and wiser than humans? Hard to do so, because we’re often taking situations for granted. Well, Stag Alliance is here to narrate such a scenario, where stags become the alphas of the world.
Interestingly enough, the story goes back in 2519 BC at Stonehenge, the prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England. According to the project’s lore, Stonehenge was created by a mad sorceress who stared everything from the moon. Until she found the chosen stag to kickstart her plans. This stag was grazing near the round monument until the sorceress’ magic started to bathe it. Ultimately, both that stag and its kin acquired the wisdom of past and present making the future generations excellent artifact makers and strong enough to challenge the human race. However stags’ weapons were unparallel, and humans could never defeat them. Thus, a new era and world order had begun.
To be honest, the lore is so interesting that makes me wonder if we going to see a Merlin somewhere in there. Consequently, I would categorize the lore as mysterious with many hidden surprises.
Finally, even thought it seems merely art-based at this point in time, there are some plans for utility, as well. Who knows, maybe even a NFT book or comic? That’d be awesome. Also, according to the information shared by their website, the team will collaborate with other metaverse projects to offer a vivid experience to the community.
I have to honestly admit one thing about the team section (Herd) – that it is one of the most complete team introductions that I have seen in quite some time now. Simply, bravo.
In particular, there is some very useful information for all the nine members.
To begin with, there is Ashley Crossland, the founder and artist of the project with more than 10 years of experience as an art director, digital designer and project manager. He currently is the most transparent member of the team, which works perfectly since he leads the project. Furthermore, we have Jimmy, a senior marketer and author. Also, the talent behind the intriguing lore. Next, there’s Darryl, a very close friend of Ashley’s, who is a senior marketer and is engaged with general tasks concerning the project.
Moreover, there are five experienced moderators whom you might know from other NFT projects: JDavitt, Kraft, Erah, Bop, and Blacky. Last but not least, there is a Discord technician, named James, who is experienced in building servers for gaming communities.
Community (Discord & Twitter)
At the moment of writing, there is only a Twitter account with a small but rising community. However, the Discord server is currently being developed and I expect the community to grow even more after its release. Because, so far we have knowledge of it being the principal tool for communities to interact and learn. Finally, I would like to mention that the engagement on Twitter is quite good but this metric can be surely more visible when Discord comes to life.

The artwork gives emphasis on aforementioned the exciting lore in the Concept section. Indeed, the stags are depicted as proud and dynamic animals with human characteristics. Additionally, the traits vary from modern clothes to armors, accessories, and different weapons.
To be specific, the samples we currently have in the website are beautiful pieces with attention to detail. And an art-style a lot different from the current trends.
Lastly, it is worth mentioning that apart from the stags’ depiction, there will also be a collection of “Portal Passes”, probably depictions of parts of the Stonehenge with colorful and shining lights as seen in the website. Of course, it will be very interesting to see what utilities these passes come with.
You can see some examples of the artwork below:
The one-page website contains pretty much everything we need to see in order to get familiar with the project. More specifically, the introduction with the lore is what truly catches our attention. Moreover, the artwork is present all around, along with a mystical music on the background. Also, we are provided with a team introduction, some useful FAQs and the “Destiny” section, a kind of roadmap in other words, where principal goals are briefly presented. Finally, a small objection to the website’s design is the fact that the menu appears only at the top of the page, so when we scroll down, we need to scroll back up to find it again. Maybe, being present at all times would be more ideal.
When we look for a roadmap, we expect to find a section where main goals and some necessary details are in display, ideally with a timeline. In our case, we have the “Destiny” section in the website, where the team briefly presents some units of the project under development. However, it is a vague introduction, without any timelines or details. Hence, we should expect a proper roadmap along with the Discord. So, stay tuned!
Stag Alliance is taking its first steps in the CNFT community. It is an art-based project with the ambition to collaborate with various metaverse projects. Their website matches the theme and offers an audiovisual experience. Also, the team is quite big and professional, and has already delivered traits and samples of a high-quality art pieces and storytelling. However, there are some details that are not yet ready, but expected to be soon. For instance, the Discord server, which is under development.
