Tribesters: Island of Solas is a social MMO game being built on Ronin by Tribes Studios. This week, the Tribesters team has opened allowlist registration to their Free Membership NFT mint. This membership will grant holders Tribesters allowlist priority, access to exclusive prizes, merch discounts, free game packs, and a special VIP badge, and more. The Tribesters: Island of Solas social MMO game has not launched yet, so this is a great opportunity to get involved at the beginning of their journey.
“We’re incredibly excited about sharing the launch of our Tribesters World with everyone in the Ronin Community. We’re builders, we want to build our gaming world with you, and allow everyone the chance to be a part of that journey. Join us, you’ll find a home in our Community Portal and let’s build together!”

The name Ronin means “samurai without a master” in Japanese. We’ve also named some of the most important infrastructure on Ronin after Japanese samurai culture. For example, “Katana” from the Katana DeX means “sword” in Japanese. This is more than a naming convention: it’s the spirit of discipline and bravery we carry with us as we build Ronin.
The Way of the Samurai RNS Collection is a series of Tier 1 RNS names referring to influential samurai terms. Complete Moku’s challenges for a chance to win one of five RNS names up for grabs from this collection: Kenjutsu, Kabuto, Kyudo, Naginata, and Musha. Here’s what they mean:
Kenjutsu referred to the art of the Japanese sword in feudal Japan. Over time, it became an umbrella term for all schools of Japanese swordsmanship, including the more modern styles of kendo and iaido. This would be a perfect name for a warrior at heart.
Kabuto refers to the distinct style of visor-attached helmets dating back to the fifth century. Later, the samurai class of feudal Japan adopted and refined them as their own. To don a kabuto helmet meant to prepare for battle. This would be a perfect name for someone who bridges the ways of the past with the ways of the future.
Naginata is a specific type of blade used by samurai infantry, warrior monks, and the deadly onna-musha – a female warrior belonging to the Japanese nobility. The Naginata’s curved blade and long handle created forced combatants to fight at a greater distance from each other than usual on the battlefield. This would be a perfect name for someone who likes to stand out and play by their own rules.
Kyudo means the Japanese martial art of archery. This art dates back thousands of years and has evolved ever since while retaining its brilliant simplicity. This would be a perfect name for someone who understands the importance of passing on traditions from generation to generation.
Musha means warrior in Japanese. You get the idea. This would be a perfect name for someone who never gives up in the face of adversity.
2024 will be the year of Ronin. While it may seem like there’s a lot going on today, this is still only the second year of our journey. We launched Ronin in 2021 to give gamers a fast, reliable blockchain that enabled digital property rights. Today, we’re celebrating one of our partners’ games and the launch of RNS with a Moku Gacha challenge. Let’s keep pushing.
