From the birth of Steroid to the launch of a new project;
Steroid was created about 20 years ago by two researchers, 801 and 975, for the purpose of creating new life forms “Numbers” with special abilities.
However, the two researchers’ research was never completed and resulted in many failed products “Lostnumbers”.
Although much time has passed, the research of Steroid was secretly continued by 801.
In the meantime, several “Lostnumbers” with special abilities escape, forcing 801 to suspend its research, but it manages to capture one Lost Number of 705.
801 obtained unique information from the behavioral data of the captured 705 while they were on the run, and decided to launch a new project.
The Hyakkiyako [百鬼夜行] is a group of “Yokai” means demons and ghosts that roam around at night and their processions that appear in Japanese legends and stories.They were depicted in Buddhist sermons from the Heian to Muromachi periods (AD.794 to 1573 maybe), in which demons and ghosts of various shapes and sizes were depicted, and it was feared that one would encounter them.Steroid was inspired by the “Yokai” depicted by Toriyama Shiken [鳥山石燕] , who lived during the Edo period and wrote the book “Hyakkiyako Zuga” (“One Hundred Demons and Nightly Travels”).
We, Team Steroid, while inheriting the soul of this venerable traditional culture in Japan, aim to sound an alarm and appeal widely through Hyakkiyako [百鬼夜行] to the next generation against conflicts, wars, environmental destruction, epidemics, and other real-life events that cannot be judged simply on the basis of right and wrong.
Yes, for example, “If you do such inhumane things, “Nurarihyon” will come to you any day now.”
Lostnumbers are the failed products of Steroid’s 20-odd years of research and development of new life forms (Numbers) with special abilities. The Lostnumbers are an aggregate of those that have stayed at the institute to help with research, those that have been imprisoned at the institute because of their ferocious nature, those that have escaped from the institute and are missing, and those that have been captured after escaping and returned to the institute.
Our objective was initially to research and develop individuals with special abilities.Numbers are completed individuals who have successfully controlled their special abilities.Lostnumbers are the failures created during the research of Numbers. However, they are unique and hateful and will continue to be kept as research subjects.Team Steroid considers them to be like modern-day ghosts. We have given them nicknames. Some of them blend in with human life.Gas Meter, Mt.Fuji, the symbol of Japan, and so on! Imagine what the other Lostnumbers were manufactured from. Lostnumbers never ending story. There will be more to come. Stay tuned!
Lostnumbers are characters that are like incarnations of your everyday goodies. Some are quiet, some are mischievous and mischievous. When you wake up one morning, you may find them under your pillow. We, Team Steroid have decided to bring the one and only Original to you, so keep an eye out for OpenSea’s Lostnumbers, 10 characters per series, and once all 10 have appeared, they will be sold. You will need 0.2 ETH to purchase a Lostnumbers Original. Anyone can purchase it for the same price. At irregular intervals thereafter, a presale of 500 variations of each character will begin for 0.02 ETH. They will then be available to the public sale for 0.05 ETH. Anyone can purchase at the same price.
975, 935, give back to family, friends and Lostnumbers; please warmly welcome Team Steroid’s launch.
