Overview: The Legacy Game
published 31/05/2024

The Legacy Forge is structured around a gamified, adventure-based personal development journey, consisting of three main seasons with increasing levels of commitment and transformation:

  1. SAGA (€500): Focuses on the beginning or cyclic rebeginning of a chapter in life. It uses the Essence Anvil process and participants meet in the Spark Space. The associated State of Awareness (SoA) is FML1: “Fuck My Life, I am stuck and need help.”
  2. RAGNAROK (€5000): Represents the intermediate stage of personal growth. The process is Ember Forge, and the State of Awareness is FML2: “Fuck… My Life. I’ve learned something new and can now create my life.”
  3. EPIC (€50000): The highest level, focusing on mastery and large-scale impact. The process is Exalted Hammer, and the State of Awareness is FML3: “Fuuuuck My LIFE! I’ve mastered myself and my magic, and can start impacting at a better and bigger scale.” Participants meet at The Round Table in The Core.

Key Elements and Features

  • Orpheus the Wise: A digital wizard providing personalized guidance.
  • Spark Key: A physical card with a QR code leading to adventures and further engagement.
  • Interactive and AI-Assisted Learning: Combines video lessons, structured learning materials, and gamified experiences.
  • Community Support: A strong focus on building a supportive community of like-minded individuals.
  • Lifetime Access: Participants can revisit materials indefinitely.

Current Processes and State of Awareness (SoA)

  1. Essence Anvil (SAGA): The initial process, focusing on recognizing and answering the call to personal growth, overcoming initial challenges, and embracing the journey.
  2. Ember Forge (RAGNAROK): Still in development, aiming to build on the foundational growth from SAGA, incorporating more advanced challenges and growth opportunities.
  3. Exalted Hammer (EPIC): The process for the highest level of mastery, focusing on significant impact and legacy creation.
