Scavenger Hunt, from 21 to 31 December !!
Here is the first information (+ flyer or poster) for the upcoming Scavenger Hunt on the big seas around: Blake Sea, North Satori, Nautilis & Southern Causica.
The Hunt Quests will be released via this forum, other sailing groups and available from Sleepover landing point from 21 December!
Welcome to the Freestate BLAKE SEA SCAVENGER HUNT
What is a scavenger hunt ?
According to wikipedia:
"A scavenger hunt is a party game in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items, which the participants seek to gather or complete all items on the list, usually without purchasing them."
In SL we are familiar with Hunts that take you to lots of stores to get gifts....
however, this SCAVENGER HUNT is all about the exploration of sims, and the finding, or doing (and recording) of curious things... perfect for the end of year silly season!
The Scavenger Hunt is open to all. You do not need a boat, though using a boat is a fun way to get to all the sims. The point is to find the answers to as many of the quests as you can.
SCAVENGER QUEST & EXTRAS notecards will be released on 21 December
You then have until 31 December to attempt all the quests and extras as you wish.
ONLY hints within the NC allowed.
Not everyone may complete or find all the items.
It is NOT required to do all the quests to "finish" the hunt.
Simply complete as many as you can in the time given.
ONLY correctly submitted Scavenger Hunt documentation will be considered.
So PLEASE... READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
The judges decision is final and no negotiation will be entered into... there, the horrid formal part taken care of.
HOW TO ENTER
Get a copy of the Scavenger Hunt Pack from Sleepover sim (the packs will also be sent to some of the sailing groups), ON or AFTER 21 December:
Read the instructions included and fill out the quest notecards as instructed.
We call sims on which you will find Scavenger Quests: "Quest Sims."
There will be LMs or SURL in the Scavenger Hunt Quest notecards. and look for and do as the quests ask.
ALL ENTRIES are to be submitted IN A FOLDER called
"YOUR NAME Scavenger Hunt"
and then shared with KirstenMJ Resident
Entries may be submitted at any point up to end of 2 January 2018 SLT.
Incorrectly supplied entries will not be counted - so PLEASE read the above instructions carefully.
There are almost 100 SCAVENGER QUESTS to attempt... you don't have to do ALL of them and the first person to finish is not necessarily the winner here...
- ANSWERS are to be typed into the NC,
- requested Landmarks/LMs are to be embedded
- requested items are to be embedded where FULL PERM
- requested items that are NOT FULL PERM need to be rezzed in a group so that all can be seen & a snapshot taken. This snapshot is then embeded in the indicated spot on the NC this is called your "LOOT HAUL"
- you can sail the suggested routes (a start and end point and list of sims to traverse will be at the top of each Questions card)
you can TP to each Quest Sim
- you may wish to do the hunt in pairs or small groups so that your boat remains rezzed when you go ashore or to the sea floor. Each member of the team must submit their OWN entries to be considered for prize/s.
There are EXTRA CREDIT items, these are highlighted and entirely optional... there will be awards for those who manage to do the most EXTRA CREDIT. Again, first to complete is not necessarily the winner here and extra credit items may require a bit of creativity.
The best of these will be displayed after the hunt at a location yet to be determined;)
The Blake Seahorse Award
-will go to the person who takes the most snapshots of them riding RIDEABLE under water sea creatures on the scavenger hunt sims. To record this the snapshot must show the location of where the ride takes place and must be taken by the rider. (Be aware each snapshot will cost 10L to enter)

and correctly submits these in a separate notecard in their entries folder ALONG WITH a completed QUEST notecard.
