Lay a colonist to rest.

Details

DEATH OF A COLONIST

Has a colonist overstayed their welcome in your colony? Has their time come? Are you running out of space in your colony and want to reduce?

If you don't have Overseer's Orders, you can depict your colonist's death, retirement, or funeral, and they will be deceased and be added to your Graveyard, therefore no longer taking up space in your colony.

Up to ten non-dying colonists can get a +5 XP bonus if they are present with the below rules. This does not stack if multiple colonists are dying in a piece. Mark these non-dying colonists as Focus Colonists to get this bonus but do not include it in your XP count or the XP you manually add onto each colonist. This bonus XP does not count for the RP calculation.

Make sure to be clear which colonist(s) is(are) dying!

If you want an Obituary message, please make it clear and concise.

Colonists who are dying don't earn XP and therefore don't earn their colony RP in their Death of a Colonist piece.

Every colony is different! Some are laid back with little to no routine, others have strict routines for day to day work. This prompt was made so that new colonies can have a bit of free-form fun to explore and also get a bit of a head start into the game, which we understand can be hard to get started in. On top of the normal Research Points and Experience Points you get for normal prompts, you earn ten free Immigration Vouchers for use in the immigration center as well as 100 Xen!

Instructions:

Draw or write about your colony just having a regular day at home or in the land around their territory!

Bonus Points!

For every colonist you include (up to 10 for you) that isn't yours, both you and the owner get one additional Immigration Voucher! Please make sure to make it clear in your submission comments who is being included and from where so that we can be sure to distribute points correctly!

Investigate something from a Random Event

Details

Your Telecom Beeps to Life

DPIP Needs your help, researcher.

In order to increase our understanding of the planet you now inhabitate, we request that you follow up on several reports.

If you have been chosen to follow up on any investigative reports, we request that you open the documents and follow up on the data within. 

Investigations can range from strange events to simple oddities that we, as the DPIP, want you to follow up on.

Sometimes things are hard to see, but if you look at them in a different way, all becomes clear.

We also must require that you expend some of your hard-earned Research Points in acting on these investigations.

Remember, even if some of the reports are scary, you have nothing to fear but fear itself.

- Officer Vigenere

Meta:

Investigations require the following things to be attached as Add-Ons:

  • An art or literature component. Use the report information (found in the "Notes" of the Unopened Reports in your inventory) as a starting point but do not feel restricted to follow the report to the letter!
  • A Research component. Each distinct type of Report has a cost, usually Research Points.
  • The Opened Report. One per Submission.

Some prompts also require specific stats in the lead investigating colonist in order to be successful. Those will be stated within the Report Notes. If they don't mention any specific stat requirements, you don't need to worry.

Simple Report: 50 RP.
Brnxago Xeiszg: Ninxvzy Ymdr MT. 
Lvajavcrt Kixbmx: Ggm Nughzry VH. INVESTIGATE

You may additionally also state which colonist is the Lead Investigator in your piece.
They will earn an additional 2 XP for the piece.
They must be showing some form of clear leadership in your piece.

Woo a Native

Category: Actions

Woo a native using diplomacy. Requires the Diplomacy research.

Details

This action requires the Diplomacy research

Diplomacy

Every so often while exploring, you might come across a native Xunari. Whether they are friendly or aggressive is a matter of chance. On rare occasions, they may be interested in joining ranks with your colony. There are things to be done and matters to attend to in order to actually invite one of these wayfarers into your home. Native Xunari have a special background unique to them. If you successfully woo a native into your colony, they may keep the background if you wish.

A Native must be encountered by someone via an Observation in order to be available for wooing. You will know if the Native is available or still wandering by a notice on their profile. Upon the initial encounter, a Raffle will automatically be made for that Native. From that point on, anyone with the Diplomacy research may attempt to entice the Native to join their colony, gathering tickets based on the success rolls of their included colonists, which is affected by the Social skill of the colonist in question.

All colonists attempting to recruit the Native should be set as Focus Colonists.

When a colonist succeeds in their Social roll, they add one ticket to the pool of tickets for the submitter. After one month, the raffle is automatically rolled and the Native automatically goes home with the winner of the Raffle. How exciting!

Collaborations split the raffle tickets, just like Research Points are split.

The Process

  1. Someone will cross paths with the native during an Observation.
    • This initiates a Raffle for that Native with a date set one month after the encounter.
    • You must have Diplomacy researched in order to attempt to woo a native.

  2. At this point, anyone with the Diplomacy Research is able to attempt to convince the Native to join their colony.
    • This is an art or literature piece in which you attempt to encourage the native in question to join you.
    • This must be a fullbody + background of moderate complexity / 800 words

  3. The following ROLL will occur: 1d20 + Social modifier of the colonist(s) in your woo submission, up to a total of 3 colonists. Each colonist who succeeds will add one ticket to the raffle for the submitter.

  4. The number of submissions one can make per Native is as follows:
    1. Four for the original finder: This is to account for the past method. However, if this colony has Natives already, that is reduced to three.
    2. Three for anyone else who has no Natives in their colony.
    3. Two for any colony that has Natives already in their colony.

  5. After one month, the raffle will automatically be rolled and the Native will be transferred to the winner. Staff have no control over the winner.

  6. If the native decides to follow you, they will be added to your colony and you may change their name or personality.

Bonuses

You must mention these bonuses when submitting with them to make sure we don't miss them.

Research
  • Diplomatic Immunity: Allows one more colonist per submission to be rolled.
  • Extradition: Allows one more entry. So, if you have a Native already, you can do three entries. If you are the original finder and have no Natives, you can do five!
  • Well Met: Adds a bonus of two tickets per entry.
Items

Certain items also have effects when attached to a submission!

  • Honey: While it no longer auto-successes, it adds 2 additional tickets to an entry, even if all colonists fail!
  • There are three letters that share names with the Research.
    • These may stack only with other types of letters and add one additional ticket per item.

Unclaimed Natives

You may find all available Natives in the information page for the Regions that Observations are possible in.

Foraging

Category: Actions

Forage for seeds, mushrooms, and plants!

Details

Foraging

Skill: Survival

The earliest ancestors of any intelligent species were hunter-gatherers. It is the natural way of things, before agriculture expanded and allowed once nomadic cultures to create settlements.

Any colonist from any colony, unless they are bedridden, may go out foraging for food and small items to bring back home for use at the colony. Examples of foraging include checking out bushes, sniffing for fruits, or picking plants.

Tip: Almost any exploration piece, so long as there's a colonist interacting with the foliage of the environment in some way, could be considered foraging! If it's hard to tell what one is doing, feel free to give a brief explanation in your Comment along with your regular leveling form.

Requirements

Maximum of three colonists acting
  1. ART:
    • At least 75% of the body of the colonist visible.
    • Coloured.
    • Background with at least three different elements.
    • 300x300 pixel minimum.

  2. LITERATURE:
    • At least 1000 words.

Mining

Category: Actions

Go play in the dirt.

Details

HAZARDS: MINOR INJURY POSSIBLE

Due to this hazard, colonists going mining must be Level One minimum.

Mining

Skill: Combat

When a young Xunari gets rowdy, their parents tell them to go play in the dirt. When they grow up after doing that all the time, they might find that digging in the dirt and burrowing underground can come with some fun rewards! However, this can come with dangers: Any colonist who goes mining might come back with a small injury!

Any colonist from any colony, unless they are bedridden or nursing, may go mining. Examples of mining include digging in the dirt, burrowing underground, or investigating potential ore pockets.

Tip:  If it's hard to tell what one is doing, feel free to give a brief explanation in your Comment along with your regular leveling form.

If your colonist is equipped with a Pickaxe, please clearly state that they are using it! This gives the possibility of an extra item!

Requirements

Maximum of three colonists acting
  1. ART:
    • At least 75% of the body of the colonist visible.
    • Coloured.
    • Background with at least three different elements. (Rocks, Stalagmites, Gems, etc)
