” … and as the gateway opened the first Synths stepped through … ” – the Witness
⚡️ SYNTH LEGION ⚡️
Meet the Synths
“… On a rainy day, up on the hill, several lightning bolts started striking the ground violently.
At first I paid no interest but the more I watched the more I realized that I’m not looking at a natural event: the lighting bolts were slowly converging to a small area and suddenly all started striking the same spot with incredible precision.
Imagine my awe when a gateway started materializing out of thin air, leveling the nearby trees, and the first scouts of the Synths stepped through!
Oh! what a sight that was to witness. Scared, you ask !? Of course I was scared! I was petrified! My inner voice kept begging me to take shelter, but the curiosity to see what came next, got the better of me.
Soon after, an entire battalion emerged, in small groups, rigorously organized as any disciplined military force would operate …”
~ tales of the Witness, Chapter 1
Meet the Apes
“… even though it’s been almost a year, the memory of the Synths’ arrival still lingers in my mind! I can’t shake the feeling that I need to return to that hill. It’s like some strange force is calling for my return …
… finally here! I did not recall for this journey to have taken so long before. Hmm.. this place has changed a lot since last year. They really did not waste any time building their settlement, let me see if I can get a closer look …
… what!? where did those storm clouds come from!? It was such a sunny day a few minutes ago. No! No! No! not that lighting again! Even the Synths are becoming agitated; why are they taking defensive positions ?!
… and the lightning struck the ground, again and again and the gateway opened, but this time it was not the Synths that came through, but some weird looking cyborg Apes instead!
… and chaos soon followed …”
~ tales of the Witness, Chapter 13
The expeditionary force of the Synths has traveled back in time from our distant future in order to guide and protect us from the dangers that lay ahead and to prevent our community’s collapse.
Once the gateway was opened, their rival faction – the Apes – followed through, bringing the conflict between the two factions to our world.
For now only a small part of each faction has made it through the gateway with the mission of establishing a base, making contact with the human inhabitants while assessing the situation before the larger contingent arrives.
This expeditionary force is made up of all-female-like Synth regiments which are highly skilled in technology and diplomacy but can be quite deadly if provoked.
The Apes on the other hand… well… they are acting just as you would have expected from any Ape tribe, creating mischief and chaos wherever they go; we have yet to discover the purpose of their mission.
“… from the little we know about them, through our observations and limited contact, they seem to be avid collectors of all sorts of objects, but more importantly, are willing to trade for them. To be honest I’m not sure how a used pencil and an old cassette with the tape pulled out would fascinate anyone, but that Ape really seemed to want them, so I traded them to her…” ~ tales of the witness, Chapter 21
The Synth Legion is a collection of 3.330 high quality 3D PFP NFTs that are created on the Elrond blockchain.
The collection is divided into two Factions: Synths and Apes, each having 1.665 members in their ranks.
There are 4 rarity Tier levels within each faction:
15 (Synth) Commanders / 15 (Ape) Alphas – have hand-picked trait combinations on top of an exclusive trait;
75 (Synth) Captains / 75 (Ape) Elders – have custom body in three color variants and one exclusive trait;
375 (Synth) Specialists / 375 (Ape) Shamans – have one exclusive trait;
1200 (Synth) Soldiers / 1200 (Ape) Warriors – no exclusive traits*;
Apart from the implicit higher rarity rank, the special rewards for owning a Synth/Ape from each collection are as follows:
Legion Commanders / Alphas:
- when the second collection is launched, the owner at that time receives a free NFT from the new collection of equal (top) rarity tier;
Legion Captains / Elders:
- when the second collection is launched, the owner at that time receives a free NFT from the new collection;
Legion Specialists / Shamans & Soldiers / Warriors
- when the second collection is launched, a special presale with preferential mint prices will be organized just for owners of this tier level;
Legion ALL tiers:
- each Legion NFT rewards the holder with 300 $BRKZ during the monthly airdrop!
- each Veteran NFT rewards the holder with 900 $BRKZ during the monthly airdrop!
- exclusive collection of only 333 NFTs
- each Ancient NFT rewards the holder with 900 $BRKZ during the monthly airdrop!
- exclusive collection of only 333 NFTs
Our contests and activities will revolve around certain traits from each collection, having one NFT from each collection could provide a great advantage!
Since their arrival both the Synths and the Apes received some elite reinforcements in the form of Synth Ancients and Ape Veterans!
The Ape Veterans limited collection consists of only 333 tokens! To make it even more scarce, this collection will not be released by us for direct mint and can only be obtained as rewards for various contests and activities!
These Apes arrived on our planet after a long military campaign but an unexpected anomaly interfered with the gateway portal, making them jump through time and space and arrive in our days instead of ancient times. Even if they initially intended to take a break from war and build a settlement to live in peace, they heeded the call of their sister tribe and decided to take up arms against the Synths one more time!
The Synths Ancient limited collection also consists of only 333 tokens! Similar to the Ape Veterans, this collection will not be released by us for direct mint and can only be obtained as rewards for various contests and activities!
The Ancients Synths returned to visit our planet and see the progress humanity has made since they guided us in ancient times. Having stumbled into the ongoing war their Synth sister faction is waging, and have decided to offer their support!
With the war ongoing, some Synths and Apes decided to put aside their conflict and take up a noble cause of protecting a little child in need of help from all of us. Thus the Synth Guardian collection was born – a limited 222 NFT collection that we made to help #TogetherForVictor raise funds for the very expensive needed treatment. 100% of the mint revenue was donated to Victor’s dad.
As our collections are now sold out, the only way to obtain a Synth/Ape is via secondary markets!
The Synth Legion project mainly focuses on the artistic part! we want to utilize what we do best and that is to offer a high quality 3D digital collectible at a very affordable mint price that would be accessible to the majority of the MultiversX community.
Our goal is to build a passionate community of collectors that enjoy actively taking part in various Individual or Team (Faction) activities and challenges that reward members with NFTs and/or EGLD.
We invite our members to discover the journey of these two factions and, even more, to help us write their story together.
A second collection is planned on the roadmap and holders of rare Synths (Commanders & Captains) / Apes (Alphas & Elders) will benefit from having an NFT from this second collection airdropped for free, while owners of lesser rarity tiers will have an exclusive presale (with low mint price) organized just for them.
UPDATE December 2022 marks the launch of our utility $BRKZ token.
The $BRKZ 🧱 will be airdropped on a month basis based on the number of NFTs available in each member’s wallet at the time of the snapshot.
This token can be used to claim both Digital (custom NFT artworks, monthly surprise SFT, access to auctions and lotteries, etc.) as well as Physical (merch: hoodie, t-shirt, stickers, etc.) items!
While the above points might make our utility seem limited, in comparison to other projects, we want to stay true to what we do best – rewarding our community of true collectors with quality 3D digital artworks either through current and future collections but also through our monthly surprise SFTs!
Here are a few reasons why you should consider getting a Synth or an Ape:
- if you are a digital artworks collector looking to expand your collection in the 3D modeled artworks, the variety of our collections and quality of our models and traits speaks for itself;
- if you like to receive a limited surprise SFT each month and also have the possibility of commissioning the team to create a custom 1/1 artwork for you;
- if you are new and just starting to experiment with NFTs, the artistic quality of our collections combined with the current low secondary market price might represent a good starting point for you;
- if you want to become part of a community that focuses on organizing various contests and challenges (mostly based on collection traits) at both an individual and team (faction) level and get rewarded for your contribution;
Here are a few reasons why we consider that our project might not be best suited to match your needs:
- If you expect passive income through farming or staking with regular EGLD, MEX, etc. – there are plenty of other well established projects that already offer you these types of rewards.
- If you expect any virtual land to be available for purchase/trade in a future metaverse– there are other projects on MultiversX offering this.
- If you expect a pc/mobile game to be developed by us where you can use your NFTs to play – several other projects on MultiversX are currently working on this, some with shooters, others guided by the power of ancient Dacian gods and even one that involves Dragons wrecking havoc in the skies above!
As mentioned in the above section, we want to focus on what we do best > creating 3D digital artworks for true collectors!

MEET THE TEAM
Before going into the team details, we would like to thank you for taking interest in our project and making the time to visit our website to learn more about us.
As you may have already noticed from the FAQs, we believe strongly in a clear and transparent communication and we consider to have provided you with all details (pros & cons) for making an informed decision about joining us (or not) on our journey.
The Synth Legion project is composed of a small team of two good friends who have known each other for over 10 years and have previously worked together on projects outside the crypto space. They are both very passionate about the MultiversX Community and believe strongly in the future of MultiversX and what it has to offer, thus making the choice on which blockchain to develop the Synths project a no-brainer.
Even though other people will be involved during the life of this project to assist with community moderation or on the technical side, n0x and neonay will always remain at the core of the Synth Legion project.
Say hi to n0x, the mastermind behind the Synths project. He comes with an extensive project management experience in a corporate environment being the leader of a market research department for the past 8 years. He will be the main point of contact, in charge of marketing, collaborations and communication strategy.
The second co-founder is neonay. He is the artist behind the Synths project and is also a very talented tattoo artist in his spare time with hundreds of people having sat in his tattoo chair. neonay is well versed in 3D modeling & rendering as well as anything involving the Adobe Creative Suite. He is the go-to person for custom artworks.
