One of the chief imports to Alurizan society is knowledge. With it comes innovation, but culturally and scientifically, it is the equitable foundation on which to build a healthy society. This knowledge comes from both within, in the form of laboratory and practical sciences, but also from the outside in the form of expeditions. Whether by probe or manned surveys, the Aluriza continue to expand their knowledge and help where they can, such as with Project XERO.
However, maintaining the logistical requirements of long distance manned exploration, there is a net of respite to be used by anyone; providing food, a place to rest or fuel, it allows a safe network of support for all sorts of travel. Establishing these ‘Rest Stations’, as they are colloquially known, further expands their range of exploration.
This is where you come in:
The Expeditionary Services have identified a system on the edge of AREZ space: Tidix. One of its planets, Tidix-c, is a dead world rich in rare minerals that would serve as an excellent site for an orbital refueling station. However, it has a habitable moon, the surface of which is near entirely ocean. Long distance probes have confirmed that it is free of advanced life, however the ES would like to catalog the various flora and fauna as well as collect samples. This will form a baseline snapshot of the world's ecosystem so it can be carefully monitored, ensuring the rest station and mining operations on the planet's surface do not disrupt the moon’s balance of life.
So, new members of the Aluriza, are you up to the task of assisting the ES in their ecological survey? For those who think they've got what it takes, sign up at your local ranger station today!
This is a month long event with a brand-new, limited time Expedition prompt, in which you get to "discover" (design) a new species of animal or plant found on this water moon. You can read more about the Expedition prompt here.
All skill levels are welcome to participate, and you can draw or write about your new species. ALL participants are entered into a raffle, where the prize is a FREE custom Xero, of the new subspecies: Marine! More to come on that later!
All entries, regardless of idea or skill level, receive the following rewards for participating:
★ 1 Raffle Ticket for the custom Marine Xero Raffle
★ 10 Prestige
★ 1 Marine ORB, which contains 1 of 3 different species of marine life for you to Index, exclusive to this event!
In addition, there will be a 2nd place prize:
Prompt entries will also be judged on how well the concept fits into the world of the Aluriza. One lucky winner will be hand-selected to have their flora or fauna concept be turned into a real item within the ARPG! The winner will also receive a special custom recolor version of their winning item, they can pick the colors! (Rainbow, based on their fursona's colors, etc.) They will be the only recipient of the special item recolor.
It's time to get creative! Good luck out there explorers!
We highly recommend joining the official Project Xero Discord for more updates & community!
