The Outlander Challenge

For those who are thinking of buying a second account, or already have one and want a new challenge, the Colonia Citizens Network is inviting players to take on the Outlander Challenge. The premise is that a brand new character is created in the bubble. Starting out with just your Sidewinder, your immediate goal is to earn enough credits to fit a good FSD and Scoop to it as soon as possible – then leave the bubble behind and head to the Colonia Nebula, where a new life awaits.

This new life will be a hard one! The new colony is like the wild west frontier, there is little infrastructure to support you (although its coming). The challenge is to see if you can make a living while along the way enjoy seeing your character grow in tandem with the colony. Forget the bubble you left behind, and all the comforts and security it offered you – the future is out at Jaques, and you can be there from its inception. Opportunities to make a living as a miner or a mission runner are open in the Colonia Nebula. There’s a great opportunity here for players to experience Elite Dangerous without the urban sprawl of the old worlds and be part of this new fledgling community as it grows around you.

Project Coordinator: Erimus

If you would like the Colonia Gazette to document your journey of colonial life – please contact Souvarine who will assign an editor to cover your rags to riches story. Or, if you just want to do it without sharing your adventure – please do!

Players who complete the Outlander Challenge will earn a unique role within the CCN community: Outlander. Participants can also receive the Colonia Citizens Network badge of merit :

The Outlander Badge of Merit

Earned when an Outlander posts a screenshot of their Sidewinder landed at least one of the Colonia Connection Outposts (non-Horizons players can take a screenshot of themselves in orbit above the Outpost world instead).

 

 

Earned when an Outlander posts a screenshot of their Sidewinder landed at least 3 of the Colonia Connection Outposts (non-Horizons players can take a screenshot of themselves in orbit above the Outpost worlds instead).

 

 

Earned when an Outlander has already gained the bronze and silver, and earns their first 1 million credits in the colony (requires the player to take a screenshot of their bank balance with Jaques in the background on their arrival to the colony and after they’ve sold their exploration data – then another when they’ve earned an additional 1 million).
