THE HUNT – A NEW TYPE OF GAME
Irissa – MOUL Forum

Someone has come up with a new game to try! I was in the Cavern this weekend finishing off calibrating my KI and overheard several who were talking about it and others who were working on it. Looks interesting and now that I have my KI calibrated, but warning, for Part 1 you won’t need a calibrated KI except for the last task.

Frosted Myst update 4.10.2010

The Frosted Myst Literature and Arts Store in Tokatah Alley has been updated to double as a community area/library.  A section for pictures of Eder Gira events has been added, as well as a bookcase that holds up to ten of the current issues of the D’ni Voice. A few items will still be for purchase there, but for the most part products will be at the main stores.  You can find links within the Tokatah store. Exception right now is a complete line of Myst designed pillows with books.  More coming soon.

Gandhar’s pictures are boxed up and available at the main store.  The special dedication by Inanna will remain available for purchase at the Tokatah Alley location.  All proceeds go to his daughter, Charura, to do with as she wishes.  She has designated through me that all proceeds from his sales go directly to Cyan.

Tokatah Alley location is a work in progress, based on input from what others want.  If you have requests, please send them to me.  If you want a poster in there that promotes your store or a special item in your store or an event, send me the full perm poster complete, or the texture, notecard and landmark with full perms to make the poster for you. Visit and give me your input on what works and what doesn’t any time!

TREASURE HUNTS:

PUEBLO BLANCO POTLUCK SIM HUNT
Riana Eiren
April 3 to April 17
Start location: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pueblo%20Blanco/208/153/27
Blog: http://puebloblanco.wordpress.com

From the notecard:

On April 3, 2010 at 2PM SLT, Pueblo Blanco kicked off the Potluck Hunt as part of a grand opening celebration. The hunt will last for 2 weeks ending on April 17, 2010 at 6PM SLT. We have little pots scattered all over the sim filled with great prizes from sponsors like:

    * Mercadillo de Candela
    * Santero
    * Magic Flowers
    * Market & Romantic Garden
    * Golden Nest Furniture
    * Skandalo’s Studio
    * …and more

We also have special pots that are filled with cash prizes.  One winner per pot for each day of the hunt.  You must wear the Pueblo Blanco tag in order to win the cash prizes.

To help with the enjoyment of the hunt, we ask that all participants follow these rules to protect the privacy of tenants and reduce lag:

    * No pots will be placed inside rented apartments and homes. DO NOT enter any occupied rentals without permission from the tenant.
    * Reduce your camera draw distance if it is above 128M.
    * Do not wear unnecessary scripted attachments or huds. You don’t need them to enjoy the hunt.
    * Do not shout or use excessive gestures.
    * We strongly encourage you to not ride horses during the event as that will greatly increase lag and slow you down during the hunt.
    * Do not wear any excessive jewelry especially if they have bling.

Check our site for daily hints on where pots might be hidden. Happy hunting!

Two years  ago, we brought 7Seas fishing to Second Life. Each year, we like to celebrate you — the fishing community! — with a long party we call Fishiversary. And if you want to reserve a slot so you can show off your 7Seas-related business or fishing area, we still have paid and free slots available! See the attached application form for details.

Fishiversary slots will have 64 slots total, spread out across two sims, with the “party sim” in between them. Slots are available in four styles, depending on your budget and your build needs.

Note from Ti:  I went many days last year.  Yes, there is lag.  It gets better in the last days lol.  It was lots of fun.  Very interesting to see each areas build.  There will also be “customs.”
