Easter eggs events
Easter eggs events are humorous events, that occur rarely.
A few of the settlers on the Galapagos Islands have taken to eating the giant tortoises native there. These immobile and defenseless giants make perfect livestock; it has become a commodity among passing whalers and has become the colony's only significant source of income.
It is said that after once tasting the Galapagos tortoise, demand for every other animal food falls off greatly. The meat of is the easiest of digestion, and a quantity of it, exceeding that of any other food, can be eaten without experiencing the slightest of inconvenience.

Galápagos Islands (2002):
Wildfowl in [Root.GetName]
Our colonists in [Root.GetName] report that the island is home to a large, flightless and rather ugly bird with an ungainly gait. Apparently, the bird is exceedingly easy to hunt, having never before had to deal with any large predators, and its meat produces a pleasant taste in the mouth. Already, its numbers are beginning to dwindle. Our Natural Scientist [Root.Owner.Adm_Advisor.GetName] has taken a personal interest in the reports and proposes a scientific expedition to capture live specimens of this species and bring them to [Root.Owner.Capital.GetCapitalName] for study before they succumb to extinction, the perennial fate of species so palpably ill-suited to coexistence with humans.

Send the expedition.
These wildfowl will make good food for our colonists.
The expedition to [From.GetName] was successful in capturing several live specimens of the bird, which has been dubbed the “dodo”. Larger than a swan and rather rotund, their huge heads are only half covered with skin as if clothed with a hood. They have a large bill which curves downwards and eyes that are small like diamonds. The overall impression is one of a somewhat mournful appearance, as if they bemoan their inability to fly - their small and impotent wings merely serving to prove them a bird. Despite this, they possess a ready appetite, perhaps unsurprisingly considering their gait.
Having studied the bird vigorously, [Root.Owner.Adm_Advisor.GetName] has arranged for it to be put on public display in [Root.Owner.Capital.GetCapitalName].
Dead as a Dodo
The expedition to [From.GetName] found no sign of the bird. If it ever existed, its numbers were small and could not survive the predations of human hunters. Nonetheless, our scientists were able to study the island’s wildlife in detail, discovering several new species and offering the colonists valuable advice for adapting to their new home.
