Odyssey Mythica

Avatar-Bizarre-Manticore-Kit
The Manticore was a beast borne of Persian myth and legend.  Its name means “Man eater”, and was also called “Androphagos” by the Greeks.  It was a Sphynx-like creature with a red lion’s body, bat wings, and a large scorpion tail.  It spoke in a trumpeting voice, had three rows of teeth, and sometimes had horns.  No matter how it looked, it was always dangerous, either ripping men apart, or impaling them on its razor sharp tail.

Twisted Odyssey is a hunt starting on March 1.  It’s a grid-wide hunt with roughly 100 stores involved.  Avatar Bizarre has been a longtime sponsor and co-organizer of the hunt, and this is a sneak preview of the hunt gift, along with the gacha prize.

The Manticore Kit includes the horns, legs, tail, and leg scales.  There are two pairs of rigged legs (small and large for female, femboy, and male avatars), an unrigged tail, and unrigged horns.

The wings are going to be included in a gacha with about a dozen colors.  There will be two rare colors:  Argentum (Silver), and Aurum (Gold).

These have all been materials enhanced for your viewing pleasure.

When the time comes, you can find the kit and the gacha at Avatar Bizarre’s inworld location.  The Gacha will cost 25L per pull (Modify, Transfer only).  The Manticore Kit can be found if you look for a gold and black puzzle box.  It will be spinning.  It will be small.  There will be a breadcrumb trail leading right to it if only you discover the Sphynx’s riddles.

Kirin to Elaborate?

So things and stuff and junk happened.  Blender was summoned from the pits of Hell, the ninth gate was unsealed, and the Learning Curve was unleashed.  After selling my soul, a box of Girl Scout cookies (the Mint ones), and several worthless stocks to the Devil, Blender suddenly felt much easier.  Clothing happened.  Lots of clothing. That’s all well and good, because avatars in Second Life generally like to wear clothes.  Then shoes happened.  There are whole messy hordes of avatars who may be Imelda Marcos in disguise.  Oh, and the wings.  My goodness, the wings!  I’ve reveled in this flood of inspiration lately.

After all, when Inspiration hits, you kind of have to follow it to its bitter end.  Inspiration is like a cat:  It never comes when you call it, but when it wants your attention, God help you if you try to ignore it!

Amidst this flurry of brain activity, an avatar was born.

Meet the Kirin in all its antlered and barbeled glory.

Avatar Bizarre (which is oddly first person) is thrilled to bring to our illustrious Second Life grid a Kirin avatar.  The Kirin, or Qilin, is an omen of good luck and prosperity.  It is called the Chinese Unicorn, though it is usually depicted with two horns.  The Kirin avatar is a delightful bipedal creature with dainty hooves, gilded antlers, and some of the wildest candy corn mane hair you can imagine.

This avatar is fully rigged, and it comes in two flavors:  Male and Female.  Oh, and about nine different colors.  There’s also a demo for the sake of kicking those tires before you buy the car.

Available inworld and on the Marketplace. .
