Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

NRDesigns_002Unfortunately, as you can see I ran this hot rod off the road, which means I’m going to have to walk until I find a place to get a tow.  I’m headed off in my mesh plaid cargo shorts and tee which I got as the AGH2 prize at Beautiful & Dangerous.

Beautiful&Dangerous_001

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.

Short Circuit_001But what do you know?  Just down the road I come upon a cute little taxi, sitting around just waiting for me to drive it.  This Whimsy Taxi is the AGH2 gift from StoraxTree and is also drivable.  Since I’ll be back inside a car again, I can take off the hoodie and try out the Outer Banks shorts and tank top that I got as the AGH2 gift from Euphoria Couture.  Now if I can just manage to keep this taxi from running off the road …..

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – More from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE].

I didn’t want my first post on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) to run on for too long, but I do have a few more great gifts from that hunt to show.  Check that earlier post to get the general information about the hunt blog and how the hunt works.  MFH XII not only has clothing, a number of the merchants are offering furniture and outdoor objects for medieval and fantasy role-players.

Lacrime dell’anima’s (MFH XII #35) free gift on this hunt is the Spirits of Nature Table set shown in the next picture.  It features four tree stump chairs animated with various sit poses arranged around a cut tree table (the lantern on the table comes with it), all set in a lovely field of flowers.  If you’re looking to fit out a rural or fantasy setting, this is exactly what you need.   Next to me in back of the table set is the Viking Wagon from the Independent Objects shop (MFH XII #26).  Although it’s not scripted to be pulled by a horse or a person, it does have several nice cuddle poses for just hanging out with your special someone.

3Lacrime&IO(MFH#35&26)_001Along the same lines, United Inshcon (MFH XII #1) is giving away this Water Pond to MFH hunters.  It’s a nice little pond surrounded by rocks and grass tufts, and contains a wood tree branch for sitting and two wooden docks.  You can see me sitting on the dock at the far end, but the dock at the nearer end near the log has a diving animation so that you can land yourself in the water if you try to sit on the dock.  Really great fun, but try as I might I couldn’t manage a photo of me diving.

4United Inschcon(MFH#01)_001~*Sweet Revolutions*~ (MFH XII #02) is giving as it’s free hunt gift the “Yggdrasil – Der Weltenbaum.”  I’m not sure what “Yggdrasil” means, but “Der Weltenbaum” translates to “world tree” and it is a very realistic looking season changeable tree.  I happened to find this tree already rezzed on Sweet Revolutions’ region and snapped the picture below.  But to my surprise I discovered that the green, moss-covered ruins with the pretty lilac-colored flowers that is right in front of the tree is Sweet Revolutions’ prize in the Midsummer Nights Dream 5 grid wide hunt (MND5 #09) which is also running during July.  Here’s a link to the MND5 blog page where you can find out more about this hunt, but at least you get a peek at one of the gifts here.

5SweetRevolutions(MFH#02MNDH)_001And finally, the last item I’m going to show you from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XII, is a complete avatar called the Elemental Wisp, the free hunt gift from Lilith’s Den (MFH XII #04).  That’s actually me in the picture looking like a free-floating green mop.  The avatar comes with complete body alpha and all those swirly floaty attachments.  The attachments include animations which make you float about in the breeze even if you are not actually flying or walking yourself.  I normally don’t go for these fantasy fairy-like things, but this one is fun and quite unusual.

9 Lilith's Den (#4MFH XII)_001So there you have it – more useful and fun things from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt.

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.

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Dark Fae & Rispetto Designs at The Wash Cart Sale

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
The Wash Cart Sale as some good stuff for men in addition to all the goodies for the ladies, and all at bargain prices.  I was pleased to find that one of my favorite stores, Rispetto Designs, is back in SL after having been closed for about a year, and has a small men’s shop on The Wash sim and  a cart in this month’s cart sale.  Designer Khayman Karlsvalt’s Amour & Rispetto Designs cart is selling one of my favorite summer outfits for just $10L – the Giretto tank top, roll-up shorts and waist-tie sweater.  You get both a black and a white tank top with the outfit, and it’s great for the beach or just hanging out.

Image

Next up is the men’s hoodie and cargo shorts that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart.  The mesh hoodie comes in both a t-shirt version and an open, bare-chested look.  Dark Fae’s black mesh cargo pants complete the look with either version of the hoodie, but the pants can be worn by themselves as a board-shorts swimsuit as well.  The hoodie and the shorts are each a mere $10L at the Dark Fae Cart.

Image

The hair I’m wearing with both outfits is Mario in black, the May group gift from Pocket Mirrors.  Pocket Mirrors specializes in retro and old-time hairstyles for men and women, and it’s another favorite store of mine that has been off the grid for sometime but is now back with a new store.  It’s well worth a visit.

ImageAnd finally, if you’re curious about the little piece of paradise in the background of these photos, you should check out the Arabian Oasis of Love, also available at The Dark Fae Cart at The Wash Cart Sale.  For just $10L you get your own beach or desert oasis complete with palm trees, fountain, and animated cuddle rug with pillows.  There are nine pg cuddle poses in the rug, many of which are suitable for relaxing as a single, and the package contains both a full-sized version and a petites-sized version of the oasis and rug.
