Designed by a team of industry veterans from Marvel Entertainment, Cartoon Network, and Adult Swim, Adult Fantasy helps its’ community members (whom we affectionately call “Adults”) develop a world-class character-based universe via decentralized world-building and lore creation.
This inclusive, “bottoms up” approach is a radically new method applied to IP development and character franchise creation, made possible by cutting edge Web3 technologies.
Narrative universes like Star Wars, the Marvel Universe, the DC Universe, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter are designed in a “top down” manner. Up until now, most “universe” franchises have been created by either a single individual or exclusive and relatively small teams. They are tightly controlled, secretive operations.
Adult Fantasy does things differently.
Adult Fantasy’s core mission is to utilize crowdsourced creativity like no other NFT project. With a focus on original, non-generative characters, Adult Fantasy is building tools to democratize and decentralize the proven techniques used by the greatest 20th century cultural myth makers.
By encouraging and incentivizing “Adults” to work together, we believe that new characters will emerge with soul, who seem to live and breathe, who have stories to tell, adventures to go on, and who cultivate a growing fanbase due to the efforts of the fandom that helped develop them.
The more content our Adults create, the more rewards they will receive and the larger the Adult Fantasy Universe becomes. Ultimately, we believe that it’s the fandom who are primarily responsible for a narrative universe's success, expansion, and longevity.
We believe that including the fans in this decentralized approach to world-building and lore creation is the future of creative IP franchise development, licensing, publishing, and collecting. Why? When building long-lasting, iconic characters, team effort beats solo acts 100% of the time.

“Good guys” and “bad guys” in Adult Fantasy is more of an ambiguous proposition. Is the Primordial’s desire to devour planets worse than the military’s interest in harnessing that power for their own purposes? Factions and allegiances are in flux just as the dimensional metaverse and the temporal solidity of Adult Fantasy are in flux.
A good leaping off point is examining who leans more towards interest in establishing law and order and keeping the Primordial in check vs. freeing the Primordial or harnessing its destructive powers. Ultimately however, it’s up to you to decide who is right and who is wrong!
The Adult Fantasy Series 1 Genesis Collection is a set of 25 character NFTs with a total supply of 2.2k. These limited edition NFTs are the key to unlocking varying and exclusive levels of access, utility and rewards within a member-driven, character-based franchise universe.
Adult Fantasy NFTs are your “golden ticket” to participating in our community, contributing, and earning rewards in our decentralized world-building activities.
For example, you can create vast, sweeping events and historic milestones within the history of the universe itself via our spoiler filled, weekly “Lore Game” sessions, assist in creating canonical character history via Origin Comics, help us create a “fixed point in time” AF adventure novel, level up your NFT with real, unique, 1/1 signed autographs, win 1/1 commissioned art, and more!
In addition, owning an AF NFT will provide exclusive access to many other opportunities, rewards, and prizes in our plans for the future. There’s so much more to come!
Adults routinely contribute stories, art, music, memes, and lore through various games, challenges, and other experiences. Our Adults are an inventive force of nature. Check out some of their amazing work below…
