The Twisted Hunt Part 1 – Buildings and Furnishings

The Twisted Hunt is one of the darker hunts in Second Life.. it is also one of the hardest, if not THE hardest. The theme for the hunt is “Darkness” and there are 194 stores of madness, torture and twisted torment, guarenteed to drive you insane before you finish it. Be sure to read this all before you start hunting, it will save you valuable hair pulling time. I know its alot to read, but it will be worth it I promise.

Ok, first be warned, there are mazes, decoys, mini games and all kinds of devious confusion along the way. There is traditionally no hunt blog for this one, but you can see the Participating Merchants list to help you if you get stuck and want to move on. You can also join the Twisted Hunt group in world where you can ask the Hint Givers for help. In short, if you want the prizes, you are going to have to be prepared to work for it.

As part of the fun there are also gatchas at some stores aswell as mini hunts, sales, special offers and all kinds of other things going on. Be sure to click the Easel at each store for more information about whats happening.

One thing to bear in mind is that gifts will be within 30 meters from the landing point unless there are more than one prize, then only one will be within 30 meters and the others could be anywhere else inside or outside of the store. There are also Petite prizes in some stores. These will have a letter P in the title so you know the difference.

Ok enough pre-amble, on to some of the gifts you can find along the path to crazy town.. Insanity awaits.. Your starting point is at The Twisted Headquarters.

In this post I will show you about the Buildings and Furnishings you can find in the hunt.. clothing and other things will be seperated into another post to make it easier for you to read about.

The first picture shows you what you are looking for. The Twisted Lament Box coloured Blue, usually spinning.
