Oh no! Poachers have swept through the plains of Lioden, hell bent on slaying the wild beasts that roam there and bringing home bloody trophies to sell on the black market. But these are YOUR lands, and these are YOUR companions they dare to slay! Go forth young lions and fight off these evil humans wherever you can.

Event Information  

This event is highly focused on exploring and battling.
The explore encounters exclusive to this month can be found in all biomes.
Your lion's karma and level, as well as the biome you explore in, do not matter for this event.

In March, the community is working to unlock three tiers of one bar.
The more poachers are chased off or defeated in Explore, the faster the Black Market will unlock. Chasing off and defeating poachers will earn you Prevent Points, which are automatically counted towards the Black Market's unlock bar.

This month's currency is Rhino Beetles.
Rhino Beetles can be gained in Explore. You can also earn Rhino Beetles and Prevent Points (which help unlock the Black Market) by playing Poacher Chase.

The March event launches on March 1st at 12am Lioden time and will end on March 31st at 11:59pm Lioden time. All unused event currency will be stored on your account until the next year.


Disclaimer: This event contains sensitive images that may be triggering for players due to their graphic nature. Unfortunately, poaching is a real thing that happens to real animals in the world, and this event is meant to create awareness about the awful realities of poaching and what it does to the world we live in. You will find yourself facing off against poachers just as many animals do in reality. If any of these images disturb you, we recommend using this guide to block images, which will allow you to continue participating in the event without being subjected to certain images.

With each Anti-Poaching event, Lioden's owners donate proceeds to the International Anti-Poaching Foundation and Tusk. They also support the Kevin Richardson Foundation, International Rhino Foundation, and Panthera. If you're interested in these charities or would like to read more, we recommend checking out Lioden's Conservation Efforts page.


Poacher Chase  


Poacher Chase is an endless runner-type minigame that is exclusively available during March's event. It is able to be played as soon as the March event begins at 12am Lioden time on March 1st!

Within Poacher Chase, you play a male lion that is trying to escape the poachers that are harming animals within the environment around you. There are obstacles that you need to avoid, Rhino Beetles to collect, and as you earn points and progress through the game, the lion runs faster and faster!

You can submit your score once per day to earn up to a maximum of 40 Rhino Beetles per day—if you play Poacher Chase each day and hit the maximum score every time, that's roughly an additional 1,240 Rhino Beetles for you to spend! There is no maximum cap for Prevent Points earned, as the amount you earn is 10% of the number of obstacles you successfully clear. Score sending for Poacher Chase resets at midnight (12am) Lioden time, not at rollover (2:05am).

To find out more information on Poacher Chase, check out the Poacher Chase section of the Event Games page!

A baby elephant is rubbing its head against dead mother's body, clearly murdered by poachers.
Action Result Reward
Kill Being an opportunist, you jump at the calf and kill it. You can't drag much back home, so the small elephant is a handy victory. -3 Karma
+1 Rhino Beetle
+1 Elephant Calf Carcass
Nudge You approach the calf and try to nudge it, encouraging it to let go of the mom. You can smell the scattered elephant group in the distance, so you push the scared baby towards that direction. Out of respect (and hard skin), you do not touch the carcass; instead you grab at some gathering carrion critters. +3 Karma
+1 Rhino Beetle
+12 Silver Beetles
+1 Rat Carcass
Wait Taking a decision to wait it out, you hide nearby until the baby wanders away towards a distant elephant noise, probably a scattered herd. Quietly, so the elephants won't punish you, you sneak to the carcass, trying to gather some food from the open parts of the body. +2 Rhino Beetles
+2 Medium Meat Chunk
A bucking African wild ass has just crossed your path! This rare donkey must have travelled far, searching for a true wilderness to call home.
Action Result Reward
Show the Way Having a wider variety of prey certainly wouldn't hurt your pride! You call out to the donkey, eager to show it some nice spots to check out. Perhaps it will move in with its herd and repopulate! +2 Karma
+2 Rhino Beetles
+2 Prevent Points
Pounce You wiggle your rump in the air and leap at the animal while its back is turned towards you! As you're both falling to the ground, you give its throat a long, powerful bite. Your day is made - donkey meat is delicious! -2 Karma
+1 Rhino Beetle
+1 Donkey Carcass
A creature is climbing a safou tree, shaking it a little. It seems that insects are feeding on the tree's rotting fruit. What a perfect spot for the tree pangolin!
Action Result Reward
Shake the Tree You stretch up and sharpen your claws on the bark. The tree shakes, disturbing the pangolin, who is now holding on tightly in fear of being eaten. Something small falls down onto the ground, and it's not a fruit! -2 Karma
+2 Rhino Beetles
+1 Pangolin Scale
Search the Ground You decide to scope the area, curious if there's anything here other than rotting fruit, flies, and ants. Bird droppings... hm. But, hey! You find some scales scattered below the tree trunk. +2 Pangolin Scales
Dig Around You sniff around the tree trunk and listen closely. There's something crunching below the surface, between the tree's roots. You wouldn't have guessed the source, if not for the line of ants crawling out of a small hole nearby. You dig furiously, uncovering a large ant nest! The pangolin gets excited about this rich dinner and gives you something in gratitude. +2 Karma
+2 Rhino Beetles
+1 Pangolin Scale
A distressed long-tailed pangolin is wiggling around among the branches. You notice it's entangled in a poaching net and is having trouble climbing properly.
Action Result Reward
Grab the Rope You stretch out to the very tips of your toes, trying to reach the net. You manage to catch it with your claw and gently pull it off from between the sharp scales. The pangolin is very grateful! +1 Karma
+2 Rhino Beetles
+1 Prevent Point
Grab the Tail You decide it's more convenient for you to take advantage of the animal's current condition. You try to pull it down, but the more you pull at its tail, the more entangled it becomes. Eventually, what ends up on the ground besides debris are parts of the body that you're barely able to scrape some meat out of. -1 Karma
+1 Rhino Beetle
+1 Pangolin Scale
+1 Small Meat Chunk
A giant pangolin is waddling towards a termite mound. It does not seem bothered by your presence.
Action Result Reward
Bop It You scoot closer and extend your paw, then... you bop the pangolin. And you bop it again. And again! The creature playfully tries to bop you, too, but its long claws made you jump back right onto a small carcass hidden in the bush! +1 Karma
+50 Experience
+1 Scimitar Oryx Calf Carcass
Twist It You stand at its side and push it! The pangolin rolls and squirms in surprise. You try to attack it, but you only managed to chip off some of its scales. -1 Karma
+50 Experience
+1 Pangolin Scale
Pull It You grab the creature's tail between your teeth and try to pull it! The pangolin rolls into a ball immediately and tackles you. Something cracks as you fall down! Oh, phew - it's not your spine, and it's not one of your legs. It's... a broken drone! +50 Experience
+1 Broken Drone
A group of people appears in a safe distance from you and they seem to free an animal from a trap. They leave in a machine, leaving you to think.. Maybe not all humans are so bad.
+1 Rhino Beetle

A huge tree is covered in blood that catches your attention. There's a human poacher pinned to the bark with a broken elephant tusk. Instant karma, they say.

+2 Rhino Beetles
+1 Oryx Calf Carcass
Nudge It Wanting to save the baby for future tasty offspring, you roar at the calf, but it freezes in fear. You nudge it towards a bushy area, where finally the oryx dashes into. +1 Karma
+3 Rhino Beetles

A roar in the sky caught your interest, and as a curious kitty you followed the noise to find a huge machine monster in a clearing. Human scent is fresh, but they already left.
Action Result Reward
Investigate You check out the monster with your scent, sight, paws and teeth. It's not really nommable, so after scratching your claws against the machine, you leave it very broken, not knowing it will cut the poacher's way home. Or maybe you knew? +3 Karma
+7 Prevent Points

+1 Small Bird Carcass
Woo! You race the falcon through clumps of grass and warm dirt, but the bird wins! Obviously, it's just too fast. It dropped a consolation prize for losers just like yourself. What a nice guy. +1 Rhino Beetle

A tiny, shivering caracal cub is in front of you, scared to death and orphaned due to poaching.
Action Result Reward
Approach You move closer, trying to see what you're dealing with. The caracal kitten cries in fear and tumbles over a slope, falling onto the rocks below. Maybe it was for the best, it's not like it would survive alone.. -1 Karma
+1 Caracal Skull
Shake Mane You shake your mane with a manly roar, trying to show the cub to stop crying and man up. Times are tough, but he needs to carry on! +1% Impression
Snarl You growl at the cub, catching its attention. It seems to crawl closer and curls up on top of your paws, seeking warmth. You let it rest in the safe presence of your powerful claws, protecting it for the rest of the day, until you both part ways. +1 Karma

NOTE: This encounter has a chance to be a trap, regardless of your pride leader's level.
An ensnared Ethiopian Wolf is growling at you as you come near.
Action Result Reward
Try to Free It While the wolf is yowling at you in fear, you try to break the snare. You finally figure out where you have to sink your claws and pull really hard and it opens just enough for the animal to make a run for it. It didn't even thank you. Rude. +2 Karma

Behold! An ancient primal spirit has possessed this shaman!

"Finally, I've found the strong lion I've been seeking. The spirits are disturbed, joined suddenly by the ones who were killed as mere trophies... too early, too many." She speaks deeply in her trance, whilst a feral spirit begins to manifest before your very eyes.
Action Result Reward
Listen "The hunters shall become the hunted. These humans must pay the price for their cruel, evil deeds. You must spawn a cub that will be used as the tool for our revenge. This tool will let us, the ancient spirits, rise up in the form of a Ferus, to bring a devastating end to all poaching." The shaman approaches you and hands you a pouch of herbs. You have been granted a rare gift - use it wisely! +1 Mukombero
NOTE: This encounter will only have a chance of appearing once Tier Two of the Black Market is unlocked. It is an extremely rare encounter; however, upon unlocking Tier Three of the Black Market, it will become slightly more common to come across.

Gasp! This huge rhino has noticed you, but thankfully it does not seem to be aggressive.
Action Result Reward
Approach You sit down in the shadow of the colossal animal and rub your head against its belly, doing your best to show your good intentions. The animal huffs, but lets you rest, protecting you as you feed. It's quite sad there aren't many rhinos left to share such moments with. +2 Rhino Beetles
+5% Energy
NOTE: This encounter has a chance to be a trap, regardless of your pride leader's level.
Gasp! This is unbelievable! A true Atlas Lion wandered here, maybe all the way from the Atlas Mountains. Could it be a lion reintroduced to the wild? Or maybe they're not extinct after all? Either way he looks like a massive guy.
Action Result Reward
Spar! Initiates a battle with a Lion. +1 Rhino Beetle if the battle is won.
Admire You take a step back and sit down to check out that giant mane, catching a small break. As the male wanders around and roars deeply, you can feel the tremble in your lungs which sends shivers down your spine. This guy better produce some amazing cubs in the future. It would be awesome to see Atlas lions running around! +1 Karma
+5% Energy
NOTE: This encounter has a chance to be a trap, regardless of your pride leader's level.
High pitched squeaks catch your attention, revealing a lonely rhino. It wanders away from its mom's corpse, which is sadly missing its horn.

Investigating whimpering noises, you find a dirt patch with a dead serval strangled in a trap. A little cub is trying to pull her out, not realizing this is over.
Action Result Reward

Oh no! You find a dead, field-dressed zebra. Some nasty poachers must have skinned it on sight. An injured but alive foal is standing next to it, too attached to its mother to return back to its herd. While it's too late to save the parent, maybe you can help the baby?
Action Result Reward
Take the Meat You ignore the foal and drag away the carcass, eager for the valuable meat. -5 Karma

Action Result Reward
Kill It You decide to quickly kill the cub. It wouldn't survive all by itself - better to spare it death from starvation. -1 Karma
+1 Cheetah Skull
Roar You let out a warning roar. After all, a cheetah is a cheetah and eats your food - they can outrun you anyway! This one, however, seems unable to master that skill and trips over an eroding ledge. It falls into a crocodile infested mudbank with a splat. At least now you know where not to walk.. +50 Experience

This weird rhino has a hole in its horn. It seems to bleed an odd colour from the man-made wraps. After seeing so many rhinos with their faces cut off, you start to think some humans are trying to prevent that from happening again.
What's this strange antelope? He calls himself a Persian fallow deer, and says he comes from the distant Middle East. He's here to search for new forests, as the ones in his homeland are disappearing.
Action Result Reward
Give Directions You greet the deer, asking what sort of preference he has regarding his new home. You listen closely through his accent and figure out that a riparian woodland would be the best to suit him! You both walk along the river shore, where you find a hippo rotting away. The deer seems quite content that the rotting meat is more interesting to you than his herd, so he walks away unnoticed as you investigate the carcass. +1 Rhino Beetle
+4 Prevent Points
+1 Hippo Fat (Very Low Chance)
You greet the deer, but you're having some trouble communicating with him. You aren't able to understand his accent very well. Fortunately, you're able to pick up that he's looking for a thick forest. You show him the way, excited to share your lands with such exotic animals! +2 Rhino Beetles
+2 Prevent Points (Moderate Chance)
You greet the deer, curious about his preferences. He has a thick accent, but thankfully you're able to make out a "river" and a "forest". You show the deer to a small stream, which trails off to feed a bigger river. You suggest that he and his herd go down south, where the weather is less harsh. As you're parting ways, you catch a glimpse of vigorous fish in the water. +2 Rhino Beetles

You catch the scent of a rare antelope and follow it for a while. The balbok male you eventually spot gets nervous as soon as you show up.
Action Result Reward
Attack! Initiates a battle with a Balbok. +3 Rhino Beetles if the battle is won.
Lie Down You show your good intentions by laying down and slowly blinking at the antelope. He kicks at the ground a bit, but eventually calms down and leads his herd to a more secluded spot. Perhaps it's for the best if they don't venture out into the open, where poachers could see them. When you get up to move, you find something crawling in the dirt. +1 Karma
+2 Rhino Beetles

You have spotted a faceless elephant body. It is surrounded by dead vultures. This looks suspicious.

-15% Energy

Traps  

Some of the encounters shown above have a low chance to be trapped, which will lead to an "It's a Trap!" message being displayed. These encounters have been marked with notes indicating they can be trapped. If an encounter does not say it has a chance to be a trap, it will not trap you.

These traps do not affect your karma and will replace whichever result you would have normally received from the action you chose for an encounter.

Depending on the encounter, if your pride leader's level is lower than 6, they will automatically be trapped! The results are randomised throughout traps.
