COST FOR EVENT: Free. NO charge for anyone accepted. Free for hunters as well. DESCRIPTION: This is a unique hunt that is done in a classic Treasure Hunt style involving clues that lead to prizes. ▬ Hunters will get a kit with instructions on how to play so they may go store to store and follow the clues for prizes.
HOW IT WORKS: ▬ Each designer will get a kit that will allow them to set up clues around their store/sim. ▬ This kit will include 3 types of clue scripts one can use.
▬ 1 item is REQUIRED. Anything else is optional as long as it follows the rules below. ▬ Items may be new or re-colors/re-textures, as long as they are in theme.
▬ Each store will need 1 path, but you are welcome to set up several. ▬ Each path will need its own unique item, so if you do 2 paths, you need 2 items, etc..
▬ Each path must have a MINIMUM of 2 clues (including start point) and MAXIMUM of 10 clues. ▬ This is NOT a combined total, but for EACH path on its own. ▬ If you do more than 5 clues in a path, you MUST have a mini prize to win in it as well. ▬ Mini prizes may be anything from your store, re-color/re-texture, gift cards, or new items. ▬ More detailed instructions will be sent out in world.
▬ Paths MUST be set up in your own store and/or around your sim, if you own one. They are NOT allowed to be in someone else's store or home.
▬ Extra prizes are most welcomed. These can be done two ways. ▬ Extra prizes to win along the paths themselves. ▬ Extra prizes for actual sale on the side during the event. ▬ All extra sale items MUST be set out for $100L or less each, or at a 25% or more discount. ▬ All extra prizes may be items already in your store, new items or re-colors/re-textures of items.
REQUIREMENTS:▬ If accepted, you will need to join Second Life Syndicate Affairs group in world. We will invite you.
▬ Go to the SLS HQ to get the setup kit. You must have your SLSA group tag active to do so. ▬ We will send out a landmark and information on this location for you when it is ready.
▬ Full blogger packs are required. Only the final prizes are required, any extra prizes and/or sale items are completely optional. ▬ If you do include items other than the final prizes, PLEASE make a note in your blogger pack about which items are which so the bloggers are aware and note items correctly in all their posts. ▬ Even though the event is free, we still would like to show all the items and get as much exposure as possible.
▬ All blogger packs and prize ADs are due no later than Tuesday July 29th at 10pm SL time. We need several days to finish putting the website gallery together. ▬ Bloggers also need time to get first posts started. ▬ This also leaves a small cushion for any emergency issues as well.
