Monrian Born Program | How it Works The Monrian Born Program was designed to give every Monrian Born community member resources that will enable them to have the best possible beginning experiences on the Moon and across the universe. The MBP focus will be on the following: connect with our Monrian Born population distribute a starter kit of a weapon, initial ammo and heal kit invite Monrian Borns to create an account at the Monria forum for further valuable information invite Monrian Borns to sign up in the Monria Space Travel thread to gain their free travel benefit invite Monrian Borns to sign up for the Yamato Repair Skilling Program --- Monrian Borns will receive their RK-5 and 50k welding wire during their first repair run introduce Monrian Borns to the MNAT Tutorials in the Beginners Corner at the forum ------> MNAT Tutorial #2 has graphics and instructions for setting up keyboarding direct Monrian Borns to the Monria Beginner Missions info with graphics should they get stuck direct Monrian Borns to the Monrian Born Program section to keep up-to-date with the following: -----> news with regard to any changes -----> events that they might want to participate in -----> field trips that are in development that they might need to prepare for -----> the list of volunteer Mentors who are available to Mentor our Monrian Born develop field trips to other planets so that our MBs can complete new player missions develop events and activities that will keep our MBs engaged -----> these events will primarily be on Monria, but can also be a part of a field trip on another planet work with our Monria Volunteer Support Team (MVST) with regard to field trips and other MB activities Be sure to join the in-game Monria Chat Channel to stay connected: press the ENTER key and type --> /join #monria right mouse click on the Main tab in the chat box on the left (first tab) click New Tab at the top, then name the tab --> Monria right click on the Monria tab select #monria and introduce yourself the Monria community is friendly and very helpful keep the Monria chat channel active and don't be shy about asking questions Monria Sweat Buying Program Monria has a sweat buying program in place to support sweating activities and to give our Monrian Born an opportunity to extend their game play, but not to be a continuing subsidized benefit. New players should be able to learn enough about the game with the help of a Mentor, society and community connections toward becoming more self-sufficient within a 3 month period. Due to an ongoing influx of new Monrian Borns, the sweat buying program requires changes in order to be cost-effective. We want to make sure that we are able to provide this benefit to incoming new Monrian Borns to give them their opportunity to extend game play, so we are being more specific with the guidelines. The Monria Management Team has established a set monthly budget, along with the following changes which become effective June 1, 2018. Monrian Borns active in the sweat buying program prior to June 1, 2018: may continue to sell their sweat until they reach their 6 mo marker beginning months for each Monrian Born have been established by reviewing screen shots see Dark Moon Enigma to learn when your ending date is for selling sweat in the program all established rules and guidelines apply as listed below Monrian Borns who become active in the sweat buying program beginning June 1, 2018: the day you become Monrian Born and are given your starter kit is your sweat selling start date date will be determined by game time and date (click on the System tab in chat box and press U) 3 months (90 days) from that date is when your sweat selling benefit will end Sweat buying rates: sweat is bought from Monrian Borns only the rate is 2 ped per 1k of sweat up to 3k per day a Monrian Born will only be paid for up to 3k sweat on any given day --- if you miss a day or two, do not expect to be paid for missing days all at once --- you have 3 mos to sell sweat, do not stockpile it and expect to sell it in bulk --- sweat is not meant to be a reserve, but a way to make ped available for your current use --- if you are depositing, you can always put the sweat ped in storage for when you need it the monthly budget has been established to be fair to all General Rules and Guidelines the primary sweat buyer is Dark Moon Enigma --- she is the Community Manager and staff member of the Monria Management Team --- Monrian Borns should friend list her in the game at --> DarkMoonEnigma --- her time zone is -4 game time in Summer, and -5 game time in Winter --- she wears a lot of hats as an official with the Monria Management Team, but tries to be flexible every effort will be made to accommodate those selling sweat --- MBs will need to give DME their available times in the game Important Note --- if any Monrian Born is revealed as buying sweat from others at a lower price --- and then selling it to DME under the Monrian Born Program --- that Monrian Born will be removed from the Monrian Born Sweat Buying Program --- and lose the privilege of selling sweat to DME As a cautionary note -- there may be others and even Monrian Born players who might try to purchase your sweat at a lesser price, especially if Dark Moon Enigma is not available, and then turn around and sell it to her at the price she pays that is supported by the Monria Management Team's sweat buying program. We want to make sure that you get every benefit, so please make your choices accordingly. Monria Volunteer Support Team (MVST) The Monria Volunteer Support Team (MVST) invites members of our community to join us in supporting our Monrian Born population, and specifically, help to guide them not only in their beginning experiences, but in their ongoing progress in developing their Entropia Universe avatar. They also assist with field trips. The free travel benefit will not apply to the MVST or MVM teams other than during field trips. However, those who served as official Monria Mentors in the past will continue to benefit from free travel, as will our Shop Owners and Apartment Owners. All Monrian Born who carry the Monria Shirt are eligible for the free travel. We see the MVST team contributing in the following ways: Monrian Born Program -- help during field trips to guide new players with experiences elsewhere -----> we intend to advise and support our Monrian Born as a group going forward Small Events -- we want to run more events during the weekend with perhaps smaller prizes -----> this includes more fun activities, treasure hunts, creature candy, and random acts of craziness Team Events -- we want to do more team events just for the fun of it -- like TT weapon Shub hunts Official Monria Events -- support where needed during our official events such as the St Patrick's Day Event in March -- this event in 2017 coincided with Gamercon in Dublin, Ireland and we had a lot to live up to based on our 2016 event success -- the MVST team helped to make 2017 even better Other -- we invite members from the volunteer group to share their ideas and suggestions because we try to support people with initiatives, and are very open to this approach Monria Volunteer Mentors (MVM) The Monria Management Team no longer supports an official Monria Mentors Program. We invite members of our community who are interested in mentoring our Monrian Born on Monria and beyond to create a personal thread in our Monria Volunteer Mentors (MVM) section and list their Entropia experiences, mentoring qualifications, time-zone and availability. This is strictly a volunteer initiative, and we will not endorse any one Mentor. Our MBs will take responsibility for selecting their Mentor, as well as any ensuing experiences. We added a guide on how to choose a suitable Mentor here. Regardless of Mentor, we will support our Monrian Born directly and make sure they are given every opportunity to advance their experiences with our guidance. We also invite our MBs to share their experiences with a Mentor chosen from our volunteer Mentor list so that new MBs have a point of reference with regard to making their own choices. The volunteer Mentors are invited to join us during our MB field trips to assist with guidance during new player mission experiences and other activities. The invite also extends to our events. ALERT The beginner mission entitled "Craft on Monria" currently seems to have an issue with the mission properly updating after crafting the required Monrian Power System. Rather than continuing to craft multiple times and getting the item, choose Option 2 instead to get the mission to update so you can continue the quest line. The above is an initial offering and more content may be added or edited.
