Guidelines for the beta version of PINs

PINs, based on EMIT-Core, is a decentralized social application that provides story interpretation in the form of " multiplayer shared role-playing ".
In order to get a better experience, the team developed two versions of BANGs (A and B) with completely different experiences for usability testing, PINs is the code name of Bangs A version. This is a Beta version (Non-Production-Version), so there is a possibility that data from this version will be erased.
Currently, PINs does not have an economy model in the test environment, but in a future version update, it will be enabled.

Working Mechanism of PINs

All the characters and episodes are recorded on a Tape, which records important information in chronological order as the story progresses.
The owner of the Tape is KP (Keeper), who can make a Pin operation at some point in the development of the story. After the Pin operation is completed, the story selected by KP will be fixed and cannot be modified. This part of the plot is called the PIN. Episodes that are not selected are hidden.
The plot of PIN includes the changes of the participating roles(Role) and the dialogues between the characters (Message) as well as the relevant background property of the plot(Dye).
The Dye of the plot includes factors such as Name/Note/Image/Music. Since different stories require different types of Dye, you can modify the Dye of an ongoing plot to meet the needs of the current plot development.

Create Your Own Verse

1. Click the button to create a new Verse, then you need to fill in the Name, Note and Image of the Verse. When the Verse is created, users who enter the Verse will be able to leave a role-playing record in it.
Verse's Name cannot be modified, but it will copy Verse's Name/Note/Image and other attributes to Dye by default, and also allow users to modify them. Pin operation will solidify the current Dye attributes in the contents of PIN.
2. If we consider the whole Verse as a script. the Name of Verse is the Name of the script, Note is the profile of the script. And the first PIN is the first act of the script. When the first act is finished, the actors continue to perform. So there may be a second act (the second PIN), a third act (the third PIN), and so on.
3. When the creation of the Verse is complete, you will get a link to your Verse. As of now, anyone who wants to access your Verse must go through it, as do you yourself. So, you must save the link to your Verse.
