Each Natura Humana entry will receive a +15AP and +8GP bonus, which stacks with the Biome Bonus!The Natura Humana quest will take your esk on an enlightening journey through the Developed Biome. The Chapters will be released gradually, and must be completed in order. Each chapter will earn you AP and GP bonuses and a guaranteed prize, and upon completion any esk who featured in all 4 chapters are eligible for a blessing or curse for the Developed Biome.
RequirementsArt entries must be full body, coloured and shaded
Art entries must have a vignette or full background
Literature entries must be at minimum 800 words
As this is a linear quest, it must follow at least 1 esk through all 4 chapters. You're welcome to include more esk for the duration of the quest, or have some show in only one or two chapters, but at least 1 must be present throughout the whole storyline.
Only your first submission for each chapter will earn the chapter prizes and Quest bonus. You can play through the quest multiple times or complete both options of chapter 3 to earn the treasures and explore more of the story, but will only earn the prize and Quest bonus for the first set. The Biome bonus is still applicable on additional play throughs during the event, and the treasures and blessing/curse can be earnt on additional play throughs even after the event deadline.

Completing the following Event Prompts will earn you a bonus of 5AP and 2GP each - this bonus can stack onto the Biome Bonus as long as it fits all the requirements!These are smaller, non-narrative activities for any players who want a more casual event option.

You cannot overlap prompts. You cannot combine these prompts with Natura Humana submissions, nor Monthly or Origin Prompts.
You can complete these prompts as many times as you like, but you can only earn one ticket/voucher per prompt.
Make sure the Prompt name is visible on your submission's title or description.Depict an esk exploring a Developed area where nature is used as beauty and art. For example, botanical gardens and greenhouses, shaped boxwood topiaries and mazes, cherry blossoms bordering a romantic walkway...Write a piece of poetry about an esk observing nature within the Developed Biome. This could be herb and balcony gardens, well maintained city parks, stubborn weeds growing through cracks in the pavement, or ivy and moss climbing old buildings... This prompt has a 150 word minimum.Humans cultivate varieties of plants in order to select new flavours of crop, make fruit grow increasingly bigger, display more vibrant or strangely shaped flowers, or yield more timber. Research a cultivated variety of plant and depict an esk alongside it. You can include it in the background of an illustration, integrate into your esk poetry, or describe your esk encountering it on a journey. This prompt allows for an abstract background.Depict your esk reusing abandoned human items to decorate their boundary. Perhaps colorful bottle caps and rusted keys would look pretty hung from tree branches, or lost jewellery and toys would make a cave brighter and homier...Depict an esk observing or interacting with Urban Wildlife. Whilst some animals have evolved to love and live with humans as domesticated pets, others have learnt and adapted to live alongside humans and benefit from them - such as opossums in America, sika deer in Japan, macaques in India, or red foxes in England...

How it worksFor a limited time, your esk will be able to purchase these special alterations using their GP without any AP requirements! These alterations can only be applied to the esk trading in the GP, and they are not transferable to other characters. The shop below will be available throughout the event, and is currently the only way to obtain a unique trait, which are traits that are normally mutations limited to Abnormal esk.
If you can't make the shop this time, don't worry - these form alterations are now part of the possible inventory for future Pop-Up Shops, where some event-exclusive shop alterations will be available again.These form alterations can apply to esk of any biome and are not limited to Developed esk only. If you want to explain these changes in your character's lore, you can create your own story behind them... Perhaps they visited the ever-changing Developed Biome and experienced some changes in their own form too, or had a profound experience upon talking to the Wanderer... It's up to you to help expand the esk lore with your unique interpretations!
Form Alteration RulesOne purchase per item per esk. An esk can buy one of every item, but may not double up on the same type of item.
One esk per comment. If the esk is purchasing multiple items, these can be combined in the same comment.
Please include a link to your character tracker and a mock-up of your design with your purchases. Staff will need to review designs to make sure they meet the trait's rules and requirements.
You must wait for staff to confirm your purchase before adding it to your character. Additionally, you will still need to do a Spirit Renewal to update your masterlist image with your purchases.
After staff confirmation, the purchased trait's design is final upon a Spirit Renewal or depiction in any drawn or written work. If you wish to change the trait's design before a Spirit Renewal or official depiction, you must reply to the original purchase thread for reconfirmation. Otherwise, changes will require the appropriate modify trait purchase in the Energy Exchange.
