Curb the Oratan Food Supply

Date: 1st September 3008Dear Arkadians,


On August 9th, the IFN began discussing reports of a variety of disturbing changes on the continent of Sentosa. Two new creatures, the Feran and the Ostelok, suddenly appeared in healthy numbers on the eastern side of the continent, and multiple Oratan camps were suddenly noticed in a variety of locations.

It is the appearance of these camps which concerns me the most. I believe they represent a threat, and the first real change in Oratan strategy that the IFN has seen to date.


Thus far, no significant force of Oratan has revealed itself from the camps, however I remain concerned that they may be somehow aiding the vast populations of Oratan that we already share Arkadia with. It is still uncertain as to whether or not their numbers are indeed “unlimited” as the ancient Arkadians warned us in The Signal, and I am very wary that we have been surprised by the Oratan before.

Our scientific community has made a small amount of progress in studying the two creatures to appear recently, establishing that the Feran is not a bird, but most likely a mammal. This unfortunately does not appear to be leading us any closer to solving the mysteries at hand.


I have decided, with full support from my scientists, to test whether we can have an indirect influence on the numbers of Oratan by affecting their food supply. We’re not sure exactly what that food supply is, but we need to find out if we are to make any headway against the Oratan. That’s why we’re going to cast a wide net.

Colonists, we need your help to cull the booming native populations of all creatures that have been discovered on Arkadia.

We have therefore created a new hunting competition with some very impressive prizes.


The IFN is offering a variety of Unlimited Smuggler equipment that was recently confiscated from Sanctuary Cove.

In addition to these Smuggler weapons, full value suits of Limited armour from Lorika Tek will be available as prizes.

The competition will last for approximately six weeks. More specific details are included below.

Thank you for your attention, and for your ongoing service to the future of Arkadia!

  • Event will run for 6 weeks starting from 3rd September (0000) and ending on 16th October (2400) MA time.
  • A “global” is any loot registering a value higher than 50 PED, including HOF (Hall of Fame) and ATH (All Time High).
  • EntropiaTracker ( will be used to track and decide upon the winners. Arkadia Studios will be committing 3 computers, running the tracker client to ensure all globals are tracked. We encourage everyone to run the EntropiaTracker software to assist in ensuring accuracy of data. If you have any concerns about tracker not recording a global, please contact Starfinder with a valid screenshot of the global.
  • Colonists may compete in as many categories as they wish, however each colonist is only eligible to win one Main Prize, i.e Smuggler items.
  • A single colonist can win multiple Bonus Prizes.
  • It is possible, for example, for a single colonist to win one Main Prize and three Bonus Prizes.
  • If a colonist qualifies for more than one Main Prize, they will be deemed to have won in the higher Category(ies), leaving the lower Category’s(ies’) Main Prize pool(s) open for other colonists.
  • Each Category has a set of 2 mobs (creatures). Each global on either of the mobs in a Category will earn a point. You can choose to hunt both mobs or concentrate on one mob in each category.
  • In the event that there is a tie for any of the prizes, the first player to have achieved the points in that category placing will win the prize, and the other will take the next prize, if any. For example, if two players each achieve 20 globals in their category, and this is the higest result so they appear to have tied for first place. The first player to have reached 20 globals wins first prize, and the other player wins second prize.
  • Final call on prize winners will be decided by Arkadia Studios.
  • Top 3 Prizes for each category will be ready for collection from Cyrus right after the event. Bonus prizes will be given one week later, after gender of the avatars have been confirmed.
  • Arkadia Studios takes a strong stand against foul play. Anyone found trying or caught cheating will be given a direct ban both on the forum and in-game for life.
