NEWS:

MAKING THE CAVERN HUGE
DocOlanA – MOUL Forums

Doc has come up with quite a few things that I think we have all talked about at one time or another. We have shown we can make a difference elsewhere and already we are making an impact in the Cavern now that we are back. I am seeing the old events well attended as well as great interest in the new ones and I can already see many other events now in the planning.

THERE.COM

Please welcome VixBlu as our latest reporter to the metaverses. VixBlu will be passing along those events that are occuring in There and I hope people will consider thinking about paying them a visit periodically as they have also, like us, chosen to live in more than one metaverse now that the Cavern is open. I will try to get a notecard together on information on how to get to the Myst/Uru locations in There for those interested in seeing their builds and attending their events.

D’NI WORD OF THE DAY
Rehnehmtahn Later

thoe = how (apparently a spelling of dho-eh or dho-ee, perhaps an adjective or interrogative derived from the adverb dho) (ex.) ?thoe kenem = How are you? ?thoe kenem Nahvah = How are you, Master?

CAVERN EVENTS:

CELEBRATION OF THE RETURN OF MO:UL – THE STORY OF MYST (IN WORDS AND MUSIC)
Jandai Writer/ Marae Arizona

After some technical difficulties (we had an instancing problem using the Bahro stone in the Bevin) the venue changed to The Institution Community Room which filled rather quickly. We also had a Cavernwide Net 2 error but everyone still had the stream and came back quickly and the performance continued virtually uninterrupted. Even hearing it a second time was very moving and the crowd showed their appreciation. Marae says she will be doing this again at a different time so that others who were not able to make it can try to come. I will post when I have the date and time.

This is one wild sim – it makes Starlust look sedate. Just walking around you never know what you are going to find. Lots of interesting stores here as well but even if you aren’t shopping this is a fun sim to just stroll around and look at the whimsy.

Welcome all to the Building Blocks Hunt, which starts March 1 and lasts through March 29.

We have over 100 shops participating and you can pick up some of the best building supply items (textures, sculpties, scripts) as well as fantastic finished builds and furniture from top SL builders, creators and designers!  This is truly a first-of-its-kind hunt and we are very excited to be bringing it to the SL community. For hints and updates on this hunt, please visit http://buildingblockshunt.wordpress.com/  To join the hunters group, click on any Building Blocks Hunt poster or search for the Building Blocks Hunters group.  Enrollment is open and free.
Enjoy!

DeAnn’s Park Place is participating in this hunt.

WEBQUEST II
Tichelle Teebrook
March 1 to March 13
Completed notecards have to be submitted by March 13 to Barbara Nicholls

From the notecard:

Thank you for playing webQuest II! There are 11 designers participating in this contest.  Your job is to visit each store on the list (relax, take your time, it’s not a race!) and find the webQuest II sign. The sign looks like this >>

webQuest-II-poster-2

And the store landmarks go like this:

~{Zaara}
Mudhoney Designs
artilleri mainstore!
.:MALT:.
LionSkins
.*Courtisane*.
Alienbear’s Designs
[LeeZu!] Flagship Store
SYSY’s Mainstore & studio’s
*Amacci* Hair, Eyes, Poses & Animations
EarthStones Jewelry

Click the sign in the store when you have found it.  You will have the option of getting your question/website, or getting a copy of the rules (just like the ones you are reading now!).   Click the button for your question. Watch your IM’s, that’s where you’ll see it. Do it now, we’ll wait. ….. back already? Cool, okay.  That question has an answer somewhere – probably on the website that was in the IM too! 

Now just pay a visit to the website, and see if you can find the answer. It’s on there somewhere, I promise!  Each of the participating shops will have one of those signs and will give you a new question/website.   Collect all 11 and you are golden.

Once you have all 11 answers, fill out the bottom section of this notecard and pass it in to Barbara Nicholls.

We will check all the notecards for correct answers. Everyone that got all 11 answers correct will be entered into a drawing for some amazing prizes.

***Please don’t try to cheat – only ONE entry per person is allowed. If we discover that your alt is submitting another set of answers, you *might* be disqualified. So just one entry please, so that everyone has an equal chance.

Disclaimer: Please be respectful to shop owners and staff. They don’t *have* to participate in this, they are doing something nice for you guys.  If you win a gift card, don’t go bothering the shop owners to try to trade it for Lindens. That’s just not cool. Rule of thumb: be nice.
