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.
Along 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.
~*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.
And 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.
