Anomalous sites

The worlds of the Star Union are filled with mysteries and anomalies for your heroes to discover and explore. These anomalous sites are often dangerous, filled with traps and powerful foes, but great secrets and unique rewards await those who dare to face them.

Anomalous sites are Locations on the Strategic Map identified by a purple marker. To interact with a site, you will have to send an Army containing a Hero or Commander to the location. There are three different sizes of Anomalous Sites, Small, Medium and Large. Small Anomalous Sites are placed during World Generation and can be tackled by any player that encounters them. Completing two subsequent Anomalous Sites will decrypt data for a Medium or Large Anomalous Sites. These are only visible to the player that decrypts the data but can be discovered by other players through Forward Base Construction, Annexation or Colonisation of a Sector. The Anomalous Site need to be cleared in order to do anything else with the Sector.

Each anomalous site presents you with several options on how to approach it. Each option will have different durations and chances of success. After making the choice, your hero will have to remain on the site for the duration of the process. During this time, they will gain experience every TurnTurn. The different options will result into different outcomes upon success, like providing unique rewards, spawning a new location or revealing a new anomalous site with a higher rarity, in addition to always granting XP. Anomalous sites with higher rarities will yield greater rewards and increased XP. If the action fails, something negative might happen, such as a Hazard spawning in the sector.
