Kiyomizu Bon Odori LB Festival

LBsBonsOdoris2017s01

In celebration of the Obon Festival in Japan, Kiyomizu is holding a Bon Odori (Bon Dance) festival in-world, where you can win dozens of summer and Obon-themed prizes from lucky boards. There’s also a small market and a bunch of freebies and cheapies. (Check out the loads of free poses at the A&R Heaven booth!)

To be eligible for the lucky boards, all you have to do is sit on one of the poseballs that is rotating around the center stage. (The poseballs bear the text “Join in LB” over them.) Your avatar will perform the Bon Odori dance. After 120 seconds have passed, you’ll get a message in local chat that you’ve joined in “LB Members.” You can then access the lucky boards. Note that some of the lucky boards have more than one prize!

The event runs from August 6 to August 21.

KAGAMI 2017

 

Kagami

From the people who brought you Rin-Ne and Ubume comes another summer Japanese horror event: Kagami 2017. Like last year’s Ubume event, Kagami 2017 features both a market with all manner of horror and Japanese festival-themed goods and an immersive HUD-based role-playing game with multiple endings (and oh-so-many ways to die).

The game will start on August 12, but starting today you can enjoy the market and win some mini-prizes from the festival-themed games that are sprinkled across the mall.

The event runs from July 17 to August 28.

Halloween Hunt @ Snow White

snapshot_014-1

The Japanese skin and clothing store Snow White is having a store-wide mini-hunt for the month of October. There are four tiny pumpkins hidden in the store and the surrounding area (including the little house next to the store). Buy them for $L0 each to get a full witch outfit, a preview of which is shown on the store blog.

For hints about where to find these tiny pumpkins, head inside the store and click on the hunt sign to get a notecard. (Don’t worry, the hints are in English!)

Happy Hunting!

Pumpkin of Panic – Trick or Treat Hunt

map.png

The Pumpkin of Panic event is officially open!

For a complete bilingual (English and Japanese) guide to the hunt, see my blog here.

In short, the hunt consists of knocking on doors that are adjacent to each shop stall. Trick or treat at the SIM every day to collect all of the hunt prizes!

  1. Each day (beginning at 9 am SLT), only a certain number of those doors (typically two) will open. The prizes are free for that day only. If you miss getting a day’s door have no fear, you can purchase them the next day for 50l.
  2. When the door opens, a text input box will appear via script in the upper right corner of your screen. Enter “trick or treat” into the box to get your prize.
  3. There are tons of shop stalls (three levels of them, to be exact), so knocking on all of the doors every day isn’t an efficient strategy. Fortunately, the event creators are kind enough to offer hints about which doors to knock. These hints can be found around the SIM.
  4. In the example below (which is for October 1st), the posters indicate that you should knock on two doors:
    • One of these doors belongs to a shop that “is lined,” that has decorative ghosts, and that sells pumpkin carriages.
    • The other door belongs to a shop that has a Japanese decoration motif, sells hair, and sells its wares in delicious looking boxes.

*POTETO* SUMMER FEST 2016

2016885aad5b446b38b8645d4765dfa37f81

Today marks the start of the POTETO Summer Festival, where you can pick up a bunch of awesome gifts and potentially make some lindens. Be sure to check out the event as soon as possible, because it lasts one day only (or at least the DJ events and the linden giveaways do).

You can find the official post about the event in Japanese and English here, a preview of all the free gifts here, and a promotional video here.

Before you teleport into the SIM, you’ll want to lower your script count as much as possible by removing AOs, HUDs, and scripted items. Because the event is one day only, the region is packed with people clamoring to get lindens.

Once you arrive at the SIM, walk up the stairs and head toward the giant festival stall. Join the free POTETO group (called “Betty Box”) by clicking on one of the the group joiners positioned on the bottom of the stall. Alternately, you can just enter this SLURL into group chat: secondlife:///app/group/a5e4cb34-1172-d255-62ac-1f426fa679b2/about

The gifts are located near the top of the festival stall, where the DJ booth is. You don’t need to be in the group to get the gifts, but you do to get the free lindens.

A total of $L20,000 is being given away through lucky boards and chat camps. There are four lucky boards that give away L$10 each and refresh every two minutes. To be eligible for the chat prize camps, you need to be withing 20 meters of the festival stall and be actively chatting Nearby Chat. Every minute, the camper will randomly give away $L10 to a chatter, and every 20 minutes, the camper will randomly give away a whopping $L500.

Nearby the festival stall is a diner with dozens of lucky boards featuring really cool items, including an animated PT-10 droid that follows you around! You need to wear your group tag to claim the prizes, but unlike the other stuff in this event, these lucky boards are permanent, so feel free to come back after the event is over.

MISAKI FESTIVAL UPDATE

Hello, there! My name is Nadjanator, and Mikayla Ares has very graciously invited me to collaborate with her on this blog, which I’ve been following for years.

A little while back, Mikayla posted a guide to the Misaki Fes hunt. I’ve been running through the event myself and have compiled a more detailed guide, which you can find on my blog here: http://insipidsoup.blogspot.com/2016/08/misaki-fes-advanced-guide.html

It contains information about how to get the grand prizes for the event.
