THE MINT IS LIVE!
THE ORIGIN STORY
THE ORIGIN MYTHS FROM THE ELDERS ARE BEING ETCHED IN STONE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN GNARNARWHAL HISTORY. SINCE THE ELDERS’ MEMORY IS EXTREMELY HAZY, RESEARCHERS FORTUITIOUSLY DISCOVERED ANCIENT TEXTS FOUND DEEP WITHIN GNARNIA. THROUGH SLEEPLESS NIGHTS AND TIRELESS EFFORTS, THE TEXT IS BEGINNING TO REVEAL ITS MYSTERIES.
Nestled deep within the Entrashalone Galaxy, there is a planet called Cobblepotinya. Oceans of water dominate its surface, with numerous islands scattered throughout the vast stretches of blue. These island oases range from a few square kilometers to hundreds of thousands. While each island is separated from its neighbors, they are connected by a common element: water. The water reminds the creatures they are all one. For every action, there is reaction.
The seeds of sentience exploded upon this world eons ago. Every creature on Cobblepotinya received this glorious gift from source. Grateful and humble, the creatures exercised their intelligence to identify and fill every available niche available on the planet while avoiding competition. That’s the secret. These creatures were bestowed with self-awareness simultaneously, and this shared experience brilliantly uncovered the sacred truth: supportive communities are essential for growth. Without them, we wither away. Competition is how to survive; cooperation is how to thrive. The time to thrive is now.
What have these creatures learned? It begins with partnership. Collaboration. Keeping it Gnar. They coexist. Their unique and wonderful cultures are respected by all. To each their own. This is possible on Cobblepotinya because these beings understand the purpose of existence. Love. Tolerance. Creativity. Awe. Wanderlust. Perseverance. Empathy. Community. Slurpees.
One such community living on Cobblepotinya are the GnarNarwhals. These spiritual beings hail from Gnarnia, previously dispersed from their homeland of Gnarlantis when it was engulfed into the bowels of liquid hot magma under the sea. It was pretty epic to watch. Scary, but epic. The GnarNarwhals are guided by 12 protection stones, which are assigned at birth by The Elders. These stones influence the GnarNarwhals’ personalities.
The Elders escaped Gnarlantis with the 12 stone cards, each containing 6 descriptor words. However, these words are written in an ancient script lost to time. Faint memories of the 12 stones and their meanings persisted, along with rumors of an elusive 13th stone that was foretold would appear thrice a century. Unfortunately, libraries of texts were lost when Gnarlantis imploded and much of the GnarNarwhal’s culture was lost along with them.
Fortuitously, the Elders of Gnarnia discovered ancient tablets deep in the ocean decades ago, etched with mysterious glyphs. After years of absolutely zero progress, the Elders nearly reached their breaking point. And then luck struck again! They stumbled upon the translation key one cloudy and hazy afternoon.
Now they are ready to share their findings with the world. The Elders know the stones and the words, but that is just the tip of what’s to come. The GnarNarwhals stories are waiting to be written. They are yearning to be shared. What will you imagine?
