NEWS:

FAREWELL TO DEVOKAN
Quinquifid Oddenfen
Countdown to February 6
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Devokan/157/166/22

The clock is ticking

“I recently reported on the MOUL forum some success in bringing across a portal from the world to which the Devokan tree village was transported to. (See http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=312493#312493 )

The next stage of my investigation is this: to attempt to take across at least some elements of the Lost Pages sphere from this world to the other. Accordingly I have set up an adaptation of the monitoring device, adjusting it in the light of the data gleaned from experiments in that other world. The process will take a day or so to complete, but after that the Lost Pages sphere will no longer be in this world. It is unlikely that the experiment will be able to translate Lost Pages in all its current glory, so do visit it before Friday, 5th February 2010, and marvel at the achievements of the two French engineers, Shenn and Aleah.”

From the notecard:

Reporter:  HelPea Tichelle Teebrook

A new hunt has started for February.  A Chinese star hunt.  Buy the Hunt HUD for 1000 MadPoints or L$100.  It’s  February.. and to celebrate that, we’ve created a cool new hunt for you to enjoy! I think this is definitely our best hunt ever and the prizes are huge! A little thinking and searching needed and as always, you can ask for hints in group chat or from our Helpeas. Have fun! 🙂

We have added more small games on the island for you to play with! 🙂

Can you find them? 😉

Note from the reporter Ti’…I am finding this February Hunt to be quite the challenge and no, my position as a helper does not give me an inside tract to the spots.  I have to think and hunt just like everyone else lol.

TREASURE HUNTS:

ELIMOURN HUNT AT ETHERAL NATURE
Tichelle Teebrook
No timeframe given
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ethereal%20Nature/27/126/24

Calling all friends of ENC and Elimourn…..Can you help?

One of the Steampunks  on the island crashed his experimental vehicle  and parts were scattered over the islands, if you can come and find each part and then send the parts back to Ontic Zephaniah she will send you a completed version of the Dragonfly Tesla Sky Runner, a Deco style Steampunk Hover bike to scoot over sims with ease and impress your friends with! Infact bring them too the more eyes searching the better!
So come on over to Ethereal Nature and help us clear up the debri!
There are five peices missing from the wreck:

1) A Tesla valve.
2) A reticulating cog
3) A stabilising coil
4) A forward Gyroscopic disc
and
5) A rear flight stabeliser

The pieces can be foundon Ethereal Nature & 2 of its neighbouring sims: Canis Bay & Ethereal Isle (they are all connected).

He is still hurt from his head injury (it’s ok Ontic says he will be fine in a day or two) so can’t remember what happened exactly but!…Before he passed out he said he remembered hitting the Cliff house, and a part flying off there. So best start your search there….

All you have to do is make your self a folder in your inventory, name it “Hunt parts” with your name on and send it to one of us with the 5 missing pieces….Happy Hunting!

From the notecard:

Welcome to our mall!
Bejambled Jewelry Outlet carries ONLY jewelry by some of the most talented content creators in the business. Feed your desires with a selection from rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, diamonds, chains, chokers, jewels, gems at the Jewelry Outlet. Please visit these wonderful shops and join in the Valentine Hunt.

The rules :
Hidden around the mall are red heart shaped gems containing jewelry items that were never released.

The hunt runs from Feb.6th to 21st.  So you have plenty of time to search and to tell all of your friends!

The rules are :
– Each gem contains one word. You should find all of them to build a sentence.
– The gems are numbered so that you know if you have them all
– The words are given on a random basis.
Those who will be able to give the complete sentence will win an additional prize consisting of a very nice mystery gift !
However, do not believe the gems will be easy to find….  you will have to search quite a lot which will give you the opportunity to enjoy our shops at the same time…

As soon as you have the full sentence ready, please send it to Anyraya Braveheart to get your winner gift !

Also please join our group to be kept aware of special sales, promotions and events.
You can also refer to our website : http://www.bejamble.net/bjo/index.php

Please be sure to visit us often and mark your agenda for the next treasure hunt at Easter !

FEBRUARY HUNTS

2/1 – 2/28    
A New Man Hunt
This one appears to be a little different – from the blog “A New Man” is a Second Life Gridwide hunt with a twist; to take part you must buy a selected item from one of the participating stores. You will be given a ticket which you must then validate (for free) at each Participating store before redeeming a gift. The more you buy, the more gifts you can claim, it’s simple.
