$20,000 Loot Found On Arkadia

By | Anouncement | No Comments

ATH

Singapore – 8/3/2014 - Planet Arkadia, a virtual treasure hunting themed planet in the Entropia Universe, announced today several players were rewarded with the second largest hunting loot in Entropian history while defending the new Underground region against the threat of the Smuggler movement.

In the game players were introduced to the illegal movement dubbed “The Smugglers” and were requested by the Arkadian Colonial Administration (ACA) to protect the Arkadian Underground from being plundered and pillaged. Colonists from across the Entropia Universe came together as one to stand and fight.  They were greeted with an outstanding loot of $19,473 that will be part of an All Time High (ATH) that is recorded in a database and will be highly visible for all players.  The winner’s names will go down in history as the defenders of Planet Arkadia and as pioneers of Entropia Universe.

Each player walked away with nothing less than $500 of value in loot after they destroyed a “Smuggler Droid MK2″, a nasty form of technology constructed by the Smugglers to gather information and destroy anything with which it comes into contact.

“Planet Arkadia is a vibrant and growing economy within the Entropia Universe and we are pleased to see the rewards earned for players who were having loads of fun as usual in this event” said David Dobson Managing Director of Planet Arkadia Pte Ltd.

On March 26, 2014 Planet Arkadia announced the offering of Arkadia Underground Deeds, which will make up the world’s first $1,000,000 virtual property. Arkadia Underground gives all players a unique opportunity to participate in virtual land investment within Entropia Universe allowing players to share in the revenues of Arkadia Underground and receive dividends on a daily basis.

This innovative offering by Planet Arkadia enables players to participate in up to 200,000 deeds that have been priced at only 50 PED (or $5.00) per deed in direct response to player demand for more opportunities to invest at a lower entry price. The Real Cash Economy has been developed over a 10 year period providing a solid foundation for the virtual economy as all in-game currency ‘PEDs’ are transferable to US$ at a fixed rate of 10 PED for each dollar, unchanged for over 10 years. Importantly, participants are able to withdraw their earnings back to their real life bank accounts at any time.

Desert Island for Sale!

By | Anouncement | No Comments

planet-arkadia-2

The Arkadian Colonial Administration (ACA) is proud to present the first two of six private island estates.

The result of substantial land reclamation near to the coast of Sentosa, the first two estates have been constructed with a Desert theme. In due course, the ACA plans to introduce two Arctic islands and two Jungle islands.

Of the two released Desert islands, the first is currently for sale from the Arkoin Broker located at the IFN Supply Depot.

Price: 15,000,000 (fifteen million) Arkoins

The Arkoin Broker is selling a claim which can be redeemed with Community Manager Cyrus Chen for the actual land area deed. Therefore, the first colonist with 15,000,000 Arkoins to purchase the claim from the Arkoin Broker will be able to exchange this claim with Cyrus for the Land Area Deed.

Each island:

  • is located a short distance off-shore, not too far from a mainland Teleporter
  • has an approximate area of 2 square kilometres
  • includes an elegant residence complete with lounge, decking, lower floor bar, spiral staircase and panoramic views from upper floor viewing gallery. The residence comes with a Revival Point and an Estate Terminal, which can be used to claim the estate and set access to the residence.
  • All-in-one “LA Marker” that gives the estate owner access to two interfaces:
  • Land Area Settings – here the estate owner can set:
  • Hunting Tax
  • Mining Tax
  • Whether anyone, or only the owner, can create events on the Land Area
  • Whether or not PvP (Player Vs Player) mode is enabled on the Land Area
  • Whether or not SatNav is enabled on the Land Area
  • Creature Management – from here the estate owner can:
  • Utilise up to 6 (six) creature DNA slots to spawn creatures across the Land Area
  • Purchase Improvement Points by adding Fertilizer
  • Spend Improvement Points to control maturity of DNA spawns

A variety of estate upgrade options are available. Further information is located here.

Remember, whoever gets 15,000,000 Arkoins to the Arkoin Broker first, gets the deed!

Good luck!

Oratan Exodus – It Has Begun!

Location: Dehera Region, Arkadia
Date: 08 November 3010
Time: 0900hrs local


As the sun slowly made its way up from the distant horizon, Sergeant Jong watched as the last members of the training squad finished up their exercise in desert operations.

Not bad Ben, you’ve done a pretty decent job with this bunch, he remarked to Corporal Benjamin Rees, Another week or two and they’ll be ready to muster out to regular units.

“Cheers Sarg, that means a lot coming from you,” replied Rees “I’m glad too coz I could really use a break to be honest…And some time with that nice little Intern over at the Museum in CH” he grinned.

“Yeah, well don’t get too comfortable, and don’t plan anything too cosy. I’ve gone and recommended you for the next Senior NCO course starting next rotation.” Jong said with a mischievous smile.

“Oh, what did you go and do that for Sarg? I was happy being a knuckle dragger!” Rees complained half-heartedly. Jong was about to respond further when a momentary flash across the other side of the plain caught his eye.

“Hmmm?” he grunted, reaching for his binoculars. As the he scanned the distant ridge line, he felt a cold hard lump form in his gut, “Oh hell…..” he muttered

“What’s up?” asked Rees looking round at Jong’s quiet curse

“Trouble…And a lot of it” he growled. Handing the binoculars to Rees, he reached for his communicator, “India Station, this is Big Dog Zero Six. Do you read?” Jong spoke into the microphone.

“Big Dog Zero Six, this is India Station. Go ahead.” the duty officer replied.

“India, Big Dog. Multiple Oscar contacts at the following Coordinates: 10397 9611. Repeat, Multiple Oscar contacts, large numbers moving north east.”

“Roger Big Dog,” came the reply, “Be advised, we’re getting additional reports of Oscars at Coordinates: 29110 29924 and 29110 29924. Looks like something’s got ‘em spooked…..We haven’t seen this many for a while,”

“Roger India. Will avoid the areas and RTB. Big Dog Zero Six out”

Grabbing his pack, he turned to Rees and said “Wind ‘em in Corporal. We need to get out of here NOW.”


Attention Arkadian Colonists!

IFN HQ have been receiving reports of large groups of Oratan moving across Sentosa. Numbers such as these have not been seen in many months and Intelligence is yet to figure out how they keep bolstering their numbers so easily.

At this time, we are unable to identify the intentions of the Oratan or what may have caused them to start relocating their forces in such numbers.

Commodore Harvir has ordered all IFN ground forces mobilised and Captain Chiharo is currently overseeing the reinforcement of all regional Firebases.



The ACA is issuing a request to all willing and able colonists to make themselves available for civilian militia duties during these trying times and to act as a further bolster to the IFN forces.

Colonists from all skill levels will find themselves useful in a number of roles and areas. If you are willing to help, the ACA are willing to accommodate you.

Oratan Forces have been spotted at the following Coordinates:

  • 10397 9611 (Medium Difficulty)
  • 29110 29924 (Hard Difficulty)
  • 24937 22415 (Easy Difficulty)

Hold fast against this show of strength by the Oratan hordes.

We will not be intimidated by these wretched souls!

Yours in Unity
The Arkadian Colonial Administration
