Hello to all Newcomers,
I bid you a big welcome to Planet Calypso in the Entropia Universe.
Before we start, Revision 3 of the Initiative, FEB to DEC 2013:
Revision 2 Link > https://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/...-Newcomer-Starter-Pack-Initiative-for-Calypso
With a review of the previous initiative and a some problematic issues that I faced during the last month running the initiative involving "suspected" multiple accounts. Revision 3 will ensure that more starter packs (60 in total) will go out each month along with a guaranteed grand prize at the end of the month while resolving the issues I have faced in the last month. The starter kits and monthly prize will be awarded to those who have completed a simple set of tasks assigned as conditions. More on these tasks later.
A small introduction to I am:
My ingame name is Shadowsniper Viper Viperstrike, this is my second avatar in the Entropia Universe, back recently from a long break. My first was Fire Sparkz Lavawalker who is now retired (account closed) for reasons I can not disclose as they are of a private RL nature.
I have been a participant in the Entropia Universe for nearly six years now and I can claim that I too are still a newbie when it comes to many things in our Universe. However that being said, I have gained a lot of knowledge over the years and through experience have learned about some of the things, what to do and what not to do to help grow the player base when it comes to first time newcomer players.
Introducing the Viperstrike 2013 Newcomer Starter Pack Initiative
What is this all about?:
In simple terms, I will be giving away to newcomer participants a portion of the PED I deposit each month in the form of "Newcomer Starter Packs" valued at 25 PED each.
How does this work and how do I claim a Newcomer Starter Pack?:
Note: You must be less than 1 month old ingame to claim a "Newcomer Starter pack".
The goal behind this is to get you actively involved within the community, both on this forum and within the game. Once these tasks have been achieved, you will be rewarded with your Newcomer Starter Pack.
There are a set of tasks one must complete before claiming their newcomer starter pack,
these are as follows:
- Registering with this forum - Planet Calypso Forum (PCF)
- Posting a proper introduction to say hello and a little about yourself including your full ingame name
- Posting a request to join a society ingame if you have not already joined one.
- Posting a request for a mentor if you do not already have one.
- Post both your society name and mentor name once you have found them in this thread.
- Adding myself as a friend ingame so we can chat - Shadowsniper Viper Viperstrike
- Finally - You must acquire the teleporter in game known as "Neas Place".

Conditions of entering the grand prize:
You must use your "Newcomer Starter Pack" wisely to both enter and then claim the grand prize if you win.
The condition for entry is that you complete the "Kill 100 Puny creatures" mission.
The condition for claiming the grand prize if you win is to complete the "Kill 500 Puny creatures" mission.
The mission broker for the "Puny Mission" is at Nus Lul.
: Nus Lul location details.
On a final note:
Registerations for FEB-2013 will occur between the 1st and 15th of Feb.
After this date, you will need to wait until the March entries.
This gives the registrant ample time to complete the tasks set to claim their pack;
And ample time to complete the kill 100 puny creatures mission to enter the grand prize.
Take Care and Good Luck,
PS. My new look for when we meet ingame
