🎉 New month-long MYO Event! 🎉
For many moons Alurizans have been fascinated by the sea-faring slug known as the Boolew. These slow moving suckers capture the hearts of all of those involved with our little project for a long time!
And now, with the help of ARC labs, we are happy to announce Boolew Palooza, a month dedicated to our favourite sea slugs by allowing you to design and keep a Boolew of your very own! Click below to learn all the details!
Don't forget our Monthly Prompts! They'll end on the 26th of the month!

While the Tidix station has been up and running for some time now, thanks in no small part to your efforts, some of the analysts have been going over the survey data and have some interesting conclusions to share! The plurepod specimens you retrieved from Tidix c II, Boolews I believe the field name was; well, it appears that despite the incredible amount of variety they display in colors and traits, they are all genetically one species! Much like you Xeros, Boolews have a lot of inherent biological flexibility! It's not surprising they became such a beloved part of Tidix's incredible native fauna.
...And a beloved part of the ARC labs! We're uh, actually drowning in eggs here. Turns out these little worms breed very easily in captivity and lay a lot of eggs, too. We had assumed they were different species based on their varied appearances and had a whole tank full of them. Now we have more eggs than we know what to do with!
I spoke with V-10, the head of the Boolew research team, and they proposed that Xeros could be the best candidate to help with cataloging and caring for the Boolews that hatch! Your XNA biology makes you virtually immune to most zoonotic infections, and many of you have displayed a wonderful sense of responsibility, curiosity, and compassion for the natural world around you.
Wonderful caretaking aside, Boolews themselves are also a perfect candidate for a companion creature! Their slow, easygoing nature, simple dietary, enrichment, and environmental needs, and tiny size mean they can be housed in captivity with absolute ease, with no harm to their welfare. The ethics board met on it, and I'm happy to announce that the Boolew has been given all the required approvals to be assigned a companion-level organism! Now, that doesn’t mean that you can instantly run out and grab one all higgly-piggly; remember the prospective foster still has to be certified as well, but how exciting!! I'm sure V-10 will be sending out more official information soon!"

Our Boolew Palooza event allows members new and old to get a free boolew MYO to design however they want!
How to Join
To join Boolew Palooza and receive your free boolew egg, follow the instructions and submit this prompt here!
- You do not need to own a Xero to participate in this event!
- Your free boolew egg cannot be traded or sold to another user, but you're welcome to trade your finished boolew if you wish.
- Any boolew eggs not used by the end of the event will disappear! Make sure to get your boolews submitted before the end of the event.
- Do NOT create multiple accounts to gain extra entries. The use of 'sock puppet accounts' to gain extra prizes on Project Xero is strictly forbidden and will result in a permanent ban.
Finally, as always, we still have our monthly repeating prompts, XOTM & ARC Survey!
What is XOTM? Each month, a new Xero will be picked at random to receive a plethora of gifts from the community! Draw, write, or create some mixed media crafts for the featured Xero and win a Mysterious ORB and a chance for your Xero to be featured next month!
I guess I don't really have a question, but a request: We here at ARC would love to receive your photos, stories, and whatever other reports you have about your new Boolew. I could say it's part of the ongoing conservation effort, but to be completely honest... they're just so cute! We wanna see what those little guys are up to!
