    Hello new colonist. Welcome to Calypso.
    As a new arrival, some of you may or may not be aware of some of the great services that Calypso holds within it's established player base. Entropia Tour Agency (ETA) is one such service, catering specifically to the new (and not so new) colonist.

    We here at ETA offer scheduled, regular, and FREE, Teleport gathering runs (TP Run) guided and protected by established and knowledgeable colonists. Experience the stunning views, wide open plains, the dense jungles, and the variety of wildlife the planet has to offer. Grill our knowledgeable guides and guards for information and advice, make new friends both veteran and new as you. Experience vehicles of flight, land and sea, and have a map full of TP's for your future convenience of travel.

    All times are Calypso server times in 24hr format. Press U in-game or go to the very bottom of this page to view both your time and Calypso server time.

    Some common questions I am regularly asked when announcing runs in-game. If you have any other questions not listed here, please ask either in this thread or via PM.

    Whats a TP?
    TP is a commonly used abbreviation for teleport or teleporter. There are many stationary TP's scattered around the planet in major cities and outposts. To have them added to your map, you need to first travel to them and activate them. You used one to get from the Gateway to the planet.

    How much does it cost to go on one of these runs?
    The runs are free, apart from a bit of time and a thanks at the end.

    How long will it take?
    Most runs, you should allow for about an hour, some are longer, some are shorter, but an hour should do it. You are under no obligation to stay for the entire run, if you gotta leave half way through, then thats ok.

    I have an Opallo, can I shoot that monster over there?
    What, the Atrox Old Alpha? No, please don't. We will have to go get you from the remote outpost surrounded by millions of them then. Best to just let the tour guards with the big guns handle that one. in fact, put your gun away, you don't need it.

    Well done to those new colonists that came along on todays run, hope you all enjoyed the tour. Schedule has been updated, hope to see some of you on the next one :)

    The shuttle service proved popular. Schedule has been updated, a normal TP run is up next. Keep an eye out for the next shuttle service to hit our schedule.

    Due to problems with the recent client side update, we have no choice but to postpone this service until further notice. Apologies to all those that were looking forward to partaking in one of the upcoming TP runs. An update post will be made once things are back to normal.

    Update: Problems on ETA's client side seem to have been resolved. Scheduled runs resume as normal.
    The run that was scheduled for today at 20:00 from Neas to Myrene Island has been moved to Monday, so next up is Atlas to Ithica.
    Thanks for your patience and hope to see you there.
