MOULagain NEWS

Cyan once again upgraded servers to help solve the patcher loading issues. I saw many more people coming in and spent some time in the city on the railing watching folk run up and down the stairs. Many of the hoods are up and running and getting their folk back in droves. I saw people I have not seen since D’mala as well as people who never got to play in D’mala or Live. The excitement and wonder is palpable and it has been so much fun to watch someone’s first experience with MOUL.  It has been a wonderful, exciting thrilling week for us all.

At Karaoke Saturday night I made the analogy that Second Life, There, Open Life and other places were ages we found to go to. I think we should think of our exile like that and that we wrote links to these ages and they are now added to OUR history. I am excited to think I can link to these ‘ages’ as well as the ones the D’ni wrote. Our world certainly has expanded and is richer for having been these places.

I have put MOULagain info in my profile along with the link to the Play page. I may try to do something along those lines in my Picks section with info on the Community here in Second Life and also directing them the same way. I encourage you, if you have room to also do it to get the word out and that way we can drum up even more support for this. If you are unable to help support Cyan through Paypal, then this is also a great way of steering folk their way as well.

All this being said, RAWA has posted Setting Expectations 

I am sure that we as older members of the community can certainly live up to them. Let us guide the newer ones to that standard.

PHANTASMAGORIA CIRCUS AT EDER GIRA CONCERT HALL
SkydiverAnarta Fall & SkydiverColorado Calloway

Wow! What a wonderful surprise! The circus comes to visit us! The Fortune Teller told me MOUL would come back and said: “The answer is YES, but only after the hidden relic is found and love is restored to the hidden magi.  And the spirits said something about a cave, and a death-eating creature of darkness. But I don’t think that’s all that important.” And a good time was had by all!

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Bare%20Rose/66/226/2

From notecard (also see in-world newsletter for notecard and additional info)

Hi everyone, June is opening our special Valentines treasure hunt to the public today!
On the hunt your job is to find the adorable lost kittens =^.^=
Each one will meow and get louder as you get closer to finding them .
The prize is this fun outfit that you collect piece by piece by finding all the lost kittens! There are both female and male versions to collect and both include the outfits shown (2 colors for both girls and guys , carrying bag (With adorable kittens), balloon bracelet , and ballons you can hold and fly with 😛
Plus theres one additional item to hunt for if you so choose!

1. Please check the Prologue and adjust your Sound before starting at the following place (􀀧)
2. After teleporting, you will find a Kitty there. This is the target to find for the next chapters (except Chapter 4)
3. All the next Kitties will cry. This will help you to locate them. We recommend you to change your “Rolloff Factor” settings (Edit > Preferences > Audio & Video tab). Middle or low number is recommended. Try to move your avatar or camera to the Kitty and listen if the sound increases as you get closer to the kitten. This is the hint to find them.
4. When you have finished adjusting the sound, click the poster to get a notecard for Chapter 1. Please read it and teleport to the Chapter by using the LM provided and find the object with help from the hint. You can buy the items for 0 Linden by LEFT CLICK (Right Click with Pie Menu does not work sometimes).
5. You can find another note in the folder from the Kitty. The notes have a LM to next chapter and hints for them. We have 4 chapters (the first place is not included), please try all of them.

Additional Hunt:
If you think it was an easy hunt, we have a last one more difficult for you. You can find the extra information in the last notecard, inside the last item’s folder. Enjoy!

– We are sorry; we cannot answer or provide support about this event. Cannot give support for trouble with outfits either.
– We have some events going on at the same time as the hunt. Please avoid doing the hunt while there is an event going on, to avoid rezz and lag trouble. Please check more information on VIP group notice, or posters around where you got this notecard.
– Thank you very much for understanding!

From notecard:

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 !

Additionally, should there be several winners, we will place their names into a drawing for L$1000.  The hunt lasts through February 21st.  The drawing will take place within a week of the hunt’s end. 

RED PACKET HUNT
Angelfire Teebrook & DMom2K Darwin
February 14 to March 1

The Spring Festival is here!
This event is celebrated by various Asian cultures in many different ways.
In Chinese tradition, on Spring Festival unmarried folks visit their elder’s homes to pay their respects, in return they get rewarded with Red Packets containing money.
In Secondlife, you pay your respects to stores and in return get Red Packets containing gifts!

This hunt is done by relay form — from the starting point, you need to find the 1st Red Packet to get the LM to the next store and so on. Each store has 1 Red Packet
LM to the next store will be in the folder. On the last day of the Spring Festival, Chinese normally call it the “Lantern Festival”
In the last location of the hunt, you will be invited to a special Lantern Festival to experience the tradition — there are 3 red packets hidden in the last location
