Dusa Summer Event - Field Trip!

Postby tikki-tak » Tue Jun 16, 2015 1:06 pm

The African Continent - the evolutionary birthplace of the Dusa, and where the greatest diversity of Dusa species are found. You have been given a research grant and the opportunity to travel to two sites to observe wild Dusa in their natural habitat - one in the mountains of Uganda, where packs of Striped Dusa with rare mutations hide, and one in the deserts of northern Egypt, where you may just get a glimpse of the elusive Sable Dusa. Do you have what it takes to find and bring back one of these rare bovids?

Date of Arrival: June 22nd


**Extras and prettying up forms are allowed on all event adoptables unless otherwise specified.**
**Event Adopts & Customs do not count towards adoption limits**

Welcome to the Dusa Summer Event! As of June 22nd, there will be rare Dusa with new mutations up for adoption, and even an entirely new species, never before seen by the public. This event will be ongoing throughout the summer.

There will also be activities and challenges that you can participate in for the chance to get your very own semi-custom Dusa! Read on for more information.

There is a large population of Striped Dusa (Dusa dusa) in this area. The objective is to observe their behaviour in the wild, and confirm that the population is healthy and stable. There are also rumors of Dusa with strange mutations in these forests.

Activities & Challenges

Postby tikki-tak » Tue Jun 16, 2015 1:08 pm

Up to Full Custom, badge.

Image
This challenge is a level-based system, with rewards based on the highest level completed at the end of the event. Each level requires different activities to be completed. You may choose a base camp to operate from, which will in turn determine what species of Dusa you will receive. (Uganda site = Striped Dusa, Egypt Site = Sable Dusa). You may not change location once you have started. It is recommended that you create a topic to keep track of your progress. You may submit your form at any time, however you can only win one Dusa, and once your form is submitted for judging you cannot advance your level further.
Form Submission Deadline: August 20th, 2015.

Image
Basic semi-custom, wild colours only.
Write a short story (min. 200 words) or draw a quick sketch of arriving at base camp.

Image
Semi-Custom, wild colours + white markings or dilutions
