November News

People have been finding MOSP and I am glad. Traffic is up over 2000 on some days while I have been over on the aditi grid learning Blender, hence my body is counted less often. Explorer numbers (as in folks hunting) are down, photographers and filmers up.  All good.

A big influx of new folks is on the way. MOSP has been accepted into the next MADPEA adventure, The Enchanted Frost Hunt. This fantasy storyline will take participants to fifteen locations during their search.
T h e  S t o r y  B e h i n d  T h e  H u n t:

A sorcerer, dark in spirit and craft, happened upon the Princess Enid in the forest one day. So besotted was he by her beauty and compassion he sought to keep her by his side always. To this end, one night while she slept, he crept into her bed chamber and plucked 15 hairs from her head. With each strand he pulled, he captured one of Enid's memories of her life before she met him. When Enid awoke, she found herself in a beautiful garden. She had no memory that this was not her home and when she saw the sorcerer, she had no memory that he had stolen her away in the night.

Every morning he comes to visit Enid and every evening he leaves, after spending the day basking in the glow of her kindness and love. Each evening when he leaves, he carefully replaces the lock on the garden gate. An enchanted lock he has fashioned from the strands of hair he plucked from Enid's head. A lock that has braided her lost memories together and makes it impossible for her to ever remember who she is or who might be missing her. As long as she never finds her lost memories, Enid will stay in the secret garden, locked away from her kingdom. Unable to free them from the frost that has settled over the land in her absence.

Once the player has completed the game (meaning that they have found everything needed)  they receive prizes.
Rez time will be turned down or off in the sim during the first high traffic weeks of the hunt. It will likely be a bit laggy and not the best for filming anyway. If you are in the middle of a project or have a deadline and need rezability, please contact me and I will do what I can to help. 20 minute rez times will return at the end of the hunt.
