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.

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.

Sinister and Steampunk

Looking for something “different” to do, I ventured off into the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. Now, I’ll admit that prior to this hunt, Steampunk itself was a mystery of the unknown to me. The idea has always fascinated me, but I have just never had the chance to see what it was all about. So… this was definitely a new experience for me, and I saw things and parts of SL that I had no idea existed. In one store, a small brain in a flying saucer followed me around. I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or scared! But this really is a fun hunt, especially if you’re looking for some cool Steampunk stuff. 🙂

Blogging soon!

My outfit – shirt, vest, pants, boots, and hat – are the SSH3 prize from Rag Dollz Steampunk Emporium (there is an identical version for the fellas in the box). The outfit also comes with a pair of glasses, but I took them off to mess with my eyes (see below) and forgot to put them back on. And there is a ray gun strapped to my leg. A RAY GUN, how cool is that?! At least, I think it’s a ray gun. Like I said, my knowledge of Steampunk is pretty limited. Anyway… the chaise behind me is the SSH3 gift from The Vintage Touch, and it comes with several animations for singles and couples. The cabinet is from An Lema, and includes the three curio items on the left:  an antique telescope, a picture of a Steampunked kitty, and… wait for it… a LION’S HEART beating in a cage. I mean, who doesn’t need one of those? The lamp is from Nadeau Shoppe; you can make one or both of the gears spin. Finally, the picture of Princess Victoria on the wall is from Sanna Science and Art. You have a choice of several antique frames, or you can use one of your own. And the seagulls are animated. I kept expecting Princess Victoria to start talking to me a la Harry Potter, but alas, she doesn’t move or speak.

Blogging soon!

I picked up these eyes from the Midnight Mania board at Rag Dollz. They’re part of a pack of six Steampunk Oddity Eyes, and they come in “regular” and unrigged mesh so you can mix and match. I’ll admit that they were rather huge on me, so I had to pick up a resizer script and mess around with them until they looked less huge. This was as small as I could get them, but I think they look pretty good. I mean, who doesn’t need a little earth in their eyes? My little shoulder pet friend is also not a hunt gift. I actually picked him up from a BubbleHut gacha during Fantasy Faire a few months ago, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear him. I think we match nicely. 😉 Oh, and I didn’t get a good shot of my nails appliers, but they are only 1L on the Marketplace. You can see a picture here.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free. But you’ve only got a few more days, so hurry!
