The Twisted Hunt is a time-honored tradition of horror, mayhem, frustration, and anticipation. You either love it or you hate it. Well, okay. Sometimes you love it and you hate it. Twisted Hunt is not for the faint of heart, or for the die hard hunter using Area Search or any of the other hunt cheat methods. It isn’t that those methods don’t work. They do. Just not well, when it comes to how merchants are encouraged to deal with things in this particular hunt.
If you have never done the Twisted Hunt as a hunter, be warned: Objects in stores can be named so it looks like the hunt object to Area Searchers. While there is a 10 *visible* decoy rule, merchants ARE allowed to hide empty hunt object decoys in walls and under floors. If they aren’t visible, then hundreds can be used. HOWEVER, the real hunt object is always supposed to be within 30 meters of the store’s landing point, and it cannot be hidden INSIDE another prim with only a tiny corner sticking out.
There is no hint blog, but if you join the group chat going on incessantly during the hunt, you can ask for hints. Other hunters will help out, and there are volunteers giving out hints of the last known locations of any given hunt item. Oh, and by the way, merchants can and do move the hunt item, sometimes more than once a day. You have been warned!
As an organizer, I’m privy to the themes before they’re announced. So I’ve created an avatar I call the Time Tripper. It’s a bit horsey, a bit draconian, and a whole lot of weird. This is just a sneak preview of the actual avatar. I will also be making some gacha fun using the theme of Time.
In any case, the Twisted Hunt begins September 1, 2014. This is the 12th Biannual Twisted Hunt, and we’re going for a full rewind of all the past colors and themes.
