Alright everyone – grab your inventory bags, clean off your glasses if you wear them, and sharpen up your vision! We are going hunting!! Yes, it’s that time again – time to join in one of the great hunts that take place in SL. I’m doing this despite the fact that my inventory is completely out of control. I must have over 30 objects I’ve not even opened. I do NOT chase the Midnight Mania boards anymore. (Well, if a friend NEEDS me, I go. Which explains the rhino statue. Sigh.) I unsubscribed from the DSN (Designer Showcase Network) last night. I do NOT need ANY MORE STUFF!! (Okay, I AM looking for a cooler for beer for my pool. *grin* And I bought a hawt new dress last night. Maybe I’m wrong. I need SOME stuff.
What do I need? What can lure me out on a hunt? The chance to win content from Honour McMillan!!! Both Aintree Gardens and Drama Dolls are included in the Hunt. YAY! Aintree had the great distinction of being the landscaper of record for a major SL conference back in October 2008. Trust me – these are GOOD plants! And you KNOW how I love Drama Dolls!!!!!
The hunt is the Diversity Hunt. What is really appealing (besides Honour’s content) is that I can hunt content that appeals to me – I won’t end up with lots of objects that I don’t want. Now comes the easy part of blogging – copying what someone else has already written. *grin* So thanks to Huntress Catteneo who put together this hunt, and thanks to Honour, who already wrote about it on her blog.
While this will be a grid wide hunt, it will not be a big one so that the hunters get bored or give up before getting to all the shops. Start date is 08/08/09 and end date is 09/09/09. Another key difference is that this hunt will be tailored to the hunters so that they can go for the sort of items that they want. This hunt has five paths, and the hunters can do any number of them including all of them if they are really keen. The start location will have the next location for all of the paths. There will be cross over points, should a hunter decide they want to go down a different path.
The paths are as follows:
1. RED: Women’s fashion – clothes, hats, jewellery, basically anything you normally wear on an avatar
2. BLUE: Men’s, unisex, or general humanoid stuff (Neko, furries etc) – Fashion and accessories not specifically for women and including shoulder pets, wings, tails, etc
3. PURPLE: Furniture – all your normal household stuff, buildings, including such things as gazebos
4. GREEN: Plants/landscape – Plants (+ plant textures), fountains, outdoor furniture and bridges
5. ORANGE: Mystery – Textures, Art, and anything we can’t categorize elsewhere
The hunt will start at: The Tiger Peak Shop You don’t have to belong to a group to do the hunt but information will be shared in the Hunt2Hunt group and on the website (which is still under construction). At the end of each path you get a cute wearable angel. Each path’s angel attaches in a different place so you could wear all five if you wanted. 🙂
As for me: Aintree will be on the Green path and Drama Dolls on the Orange. So you know where *I* am hunting! You can see part of the Aintree store behind the sign in this picture. I LOVE the Heron!!!
