Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.

Hello…Mr. Tumnus…are you here?

With all the Fantasy type events and hunts going on right now, I figured it was high time I did a post that was fantasy related.

Narni1

The mesh Temperance dress I am wearing, as well as the fantastic Woodland Lampost I am standing beside are what you will receive when you find the butterfly at the MASH Fashion store. They are both included in the hunt prize for the Midsummer Nights Dream Hunt, and if you would like more information, and/or hints, here’s the link to the KastleRock Hunts Blog which has all that info and more. Every prize on this hunt is L$1, but every store is supposed to be supplying something for everyone, whether it be like MASH, with a women’s gift and a unisex gift, or a male gift, some even have gifts for petites. I love hunts where everyone can be happy :)

NarniaCollage3

Staying within my fantasy mood, I hit up this round of The Fantasy Room, and found this beautiful headband from GED. The Ethnic Swirls headband, in silver, is only L$50, but if you prefer gold, there is also a gold version available. I love the delicate swirl right in the middle of my brow, I feel like an elf princess with this piece, I just need the pointy ears now!

My last stop was at a more sci-fi event, The Nexus. There, I played the Nova Gacha for Origami SLink nailpolish, at just L$25 a play. I lucked out and actually got matching peach finger and toe polish after only 4 tries! I really like the pixellated look of this polish, and can see myself wearing it quite often. I’ve included a picture of the vendor so you can see the different colour combinations that are available.

Narnia2

So, what do you think? As I was taking my picture, being photo-bombed by a roaming ferret, I was expecting characters from the Narnia books to just pop out of the trees.  Fantasy is one of my favourite genre’s, and I really should do more posts like this. Expect more from me!

Until next time, I’m going to go check and see if that ferret can talk :) TTFN!

Which Way to the Farmer’s Market?

Happy weekend everyone! It is absolutely gorgeous in my neck of the woods, and I hope you all can say the same thing. The outfit I have for you in this post would be so perfect for the weather I am having, it makes me think of wandering up and down isles of an outdoor farmer’s market in a big city, with the sun shining brightly and the smell of kettle popcorn being popped (or some other delicious smelling food being prepared for the crowds) OK…enough of that kind of talk, my mouth is starting to water, let me tell you about what I am wearing :)

Boho-esque1

I shall start with my bright and cheery skirt! I adore this skirt, and lucky for all of you, you can get it for free and adore it like me! The ::FAC:: Joni Maxi Skirt and Belt is the July group gift from FA Creations. The skirt is mesh, in the standard sizes, and the belt is resizable. I just love the gems hanging off of the belt, what a great little touch. The group is free to join, and they put out a fabulous gift every month, so it is well worth the group spot.

Boho-esqueCollage

Next up is my stylish purse, from Loordes of London. It is one of the current free gifts available at the FabFree Headquarters, and I just love the colour and pattern of the fabric. The Loordes of London-La Boheme Bag-Uniques is my kind of purse, and that’s saying something, as I do not wear many purses here in SL. Don’t wait too long to head over to FabFree HQ if you want this, as the gifts available are always changing, and you just don’t know how long something will be there!

Last of my things to tell you about, but definitely not least, is the :*:CPD:*: Dryad Fetish Necklace. This lovely piece is the free hunt prize from Chaos, Panic, and Disorder! for the Medieval Fantasy Hunt 12, that runs until July 31 and has a theme of Spirits of Nature. There is both a female and male version available, hidden in separate places. You are looking for an ivy wreath with a dragonfly in the center, and to help you out, hints have been provided:
Women: “Spirit of nature? How about the Goddess of Nature?'”
Male: “Cube, cookie, bowl, loaf, packet… they say it’s not good for you.” Make sure you take a good look around, as there are a few other hunts happening at the store, and the other prizes are just as nice :)

Alrighty…that’s it for now, I think I can smell that kettle popcorn in the air, and it is calling me. Until next time, TTFN!!!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Riches of the Silk Road

Another fabulous guest blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Greetings from the Orient, all you deal-seekers.  The Silk Road Hunt (hunt website here) organized by Historical Hunts is running until June 30, and has some fabulous gifts that are completely free.  There are 102 stops on this hunt, each one having a male and female or a unisex free gift. The theme this year is “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”, so you will find the gifts focusing on the Middle East and Arabia. No blog post can do justice to the many beautiful things you can find traveling the Silk Road this year, but let me give you a taste of what you will find.

This hunt is features many buildings, furniture and other decor items, but there are also a few clothing items.  First off let me show you a combination of two clothing gifts.  The Ali Baba headdress, vest, sword, and leather wrist cuffs in this picture come from Goddess Fantasies (#05 SRH5), while the pants and belt are the gift at Rag Dollz (#032 SRH5).  There are some pretty nice women’s clothing gifts at both of these stores too.

Image

 

Shown above:

Headress, vest, sword, wrist cuffs:  Goddess Fantasies – Ali Baba (#05 Silk Road Hunt 5 gift/free)

Pants, belt:  Rag Dollz – Thieves Quest (#032 SSRH5 gift/free)


Now let me pan back my camera a bit and show you the gorgeous building I’m standing in front of.  It’s the Ali Baba Tower, the Silk Road Hunt gift from Salome Designs (#09 SRH5).  It’s a gorgeous two story hexagonal Arabian-style building with a hanging fire pot and a balcony walkway around the second story inside.  And remember – it’s absolutely free!

Image

You can furnish your building with the room divider with plants, a chair and table from Hearth & Home (#012 SRH5) shown on the left below, or with the burl tables, dressing screen and plant stand, all gifts from An Lema (#018 SRH5) shown on the right.

Image

Shown above:

Ali Baba Tower: Salome Designs (#09 SRH5 gift/free)

Room Divider with plants, chair, table: Hearth & Home  (#012 SRH5 gift/free)

Secret of the Thieves Burl tables, Thieves Dressing Screen, Riches of Persia Plant Stand: An Lema (#018 SRH5 gift/free)


Another of the buildings available as gifts on the Silk Road Hunt is the  Arabian Temple found at Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5).  It has lovely carved wood windows and the interior textures are amazing.

Image

You can see more of the interior of this building here because I’ve furnished it with the Scroll Floor Lamp, the gift from Kismet (#035 SRH5) and the Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant from Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5) in the top picture, and Salman’s Rug 4two from Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5).  This is mighty sweet decor whether your furnishing a Middle Eastern building or just a beachside house.

Shown above:

Arabian Temple: Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5 gift/free)

Scroll Floor Lamp (3 sizes including table):  Kismet (#035 SRH5 gift/free)

Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant:  Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5 gift/free)

Salman’s Rug 4two (M/F/Cuddles):  Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5 gift/free)


 

There are quite a few fun gifts on this hunt as well.  Two of my favorites are the Relaxing Magic Carpet made by Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5) and the Hide n’ Peek Jars, the hunt gift at Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5).  It may not be clear from the picture below, but the Relaxing Magic Carpet hovers up and down (but doesn’t actually fly and can’t be steered).  The Hide n’ Peek Jars allow three people to hide in or between the various jars in the set.  Very handy if you are one of the 40 thieves.

Image

Shown above:

Relaxing Magic Carpet (it hovers):  Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5 gift/free)

Hide n’ Peek Jars (seats 3):  Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5 gift/free)


If all you want for your desert oasis is some water and an elegant spot to rest, you can’t beat the tile oasis with water pool from Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5).  After refreshing yourself at the pool, you can rest on the cushions that surround this lovely low table from Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5).  The cushions and table come with the plate and table lamp shown in the picture.

Image

Shown above:

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5 gift/free)

Low table with cushions, plate, lamp:  Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5 gift/free)


And for the more nomadically-minded you can find the blue and gold satin tent on the left in the picture below at Botanica (#093 SRH5), and the elaborate furnished tent with pillows on the right at ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5). Both come with elegant working lanterns.

Image

Shown above:

On the left: Blue gypsy tent – Botanica (#093 SRH5 gift/free)

On the left: Arabian tent - ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5 gift/free)


Finally, so that you don’t think there are just two men’s clothing gifts on the Silk Road Hunt, I must show you several of the many, many gifts available at stop #085, the Mountain Rose Shops.  This single stop on the main hunt offers a “mini hunt” among the several stores at that location, and you can pick up a total of nineteen prizes there.  Some are furnishings and buildings, and others are clothing.  Each of the clothing gifts includes men’s, boy’s, ladies, girls, and child versions.  As you’ll see from my pictures, the Mountain Rose Shops did not just limit themselves to an Arabian theme, but rather created clothing gifts from across the entire Silk Road route.  In several of these pictures I am wearing the red Ali shoes, the men’s hunt gift from Lindy Modern Shoes (#082).  But here are the clothing gifts from the Mountain Rose Shops:

Image

Shown above (all prizes from the mini-hunt at the Mountain Rose Shops):

#1  Arab Prince:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#2  Beggar:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#3:  Indian Prince – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#4:  Mongolian Prince (with boots) – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#5:  Venetian Nobleman – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

Shoes: Ali Red – Lindy Modern Shoes (#082 SRH5 gift/free)
