Contest Update & Thanksgiving Break

Friday, November 25th, 2016






It’s the 25th of November, and that means it’s time to announce the winners of the Dead Man’s Diary grand prize Rare, the Pirate Gold Skull texture. We want to thank the hundreds of people who made the hunt a success! We appreciated your participation and feedback in this little adventure.

Randomly chosen from the people who completed the hunt, we’ve got 10 grand prize winners: Aphrodite Starr, Twistedsatan, Luna Thereian, Tamurello Voight, Kryptic Corleone, kokytos, Farruko Aiten, kototori, Neiang Raynier, & mystcone. Congrats winners! You should receive your Grand Prize Rare today in your tank texture inventories.

While the grand prize Pirate GoldSkull will no longer be up for grabs, we have a week before the next hunt starts, so we’ve decided to extend the Dead Man’s Diary a week and keep the Pirate Map rare available. If you know someone who might want to nab it before next Friday, let them know!

Also, we wanted to give everyone a heads up that we’re taking a short break from our Friday events, partly due to the holiday here in the states but also to have time to get the next hunt up and running! We’ll be back soon with a new event and an announcement.


UPDATE 12/2/16

We’ve delivered all the Pirate Goldskulls, as well as the VialCrown textures from the November contest. If you haven’t received your prize, notecard LiquidDesigns Resident and they’ll sort it out!

Also, there is no event again this Friday (Dec 2nd). We will be back in action Friday the 9th, thanks for your patience!

Bloodlines Hunt: Dead Man’s Diary

Sunday, November 13th, 2016








A man has been murdered! It’s up to you to follow the trail and bear witness to his tale of woe. If you can find all the clues you will be richly rewarded.

The “Dead Man’s Diary” Hunt is running on the Liquid East RP area (below the Bloodlines East stores) for the next few weeks. The rules are simple:

  • Collect 11 Message Bottles containing clues. Wear and click a bottle to get the next clue.
  • Once completed, put all the Bottles in a folder with your *exact* avatar name (not display name) on it
  • Pass the folder to LiquidDesigns Resident, and you’ll have the “Pirate Map” Rare Texture delivered asap, usually within 24 hours or less.

We’re also doing a random drawing at the end of the Hunt – 10 lucky winners (drawn from those who completed the Hunt) will receive the “Pirate Goldskull” Rare texture.

One last thing – we’ve turned off flying to encourage everyone to explore. If you fly, we won’t punish you, but Mars Bracken will think you’re pretty lame.

Good luck and happy hunting!

When: Nov 13th – Nov 25th

Where: Liquid East RP Area

UPDATE 12.6.16

We’ve delivered all the Limited Textures and the Grand Prizes, but the hunt will stay on the East sim (with a nice mesh trophy at the end) and we’ve updated it with our new Hunt HUD to help keep track of clues and progress. Thanks everyone for making this first Hunt a success!

Bloodlines Anniversary Hunting Contest

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

As part of our 7th Anniversary Event, we’re opening up another contest – to hunt for the soul of Lyle Maeterlinck!

There’s no purchase necessary to enter. Prizes include:

– Bloodlines Gift Cards

– A bite or claw from Mars Bracken or Lyle Maeterlinck

– A chance to win Lyle Maeterlinck’s soul

A representative from Bloodlines will be roaming the Second Life grid as a fresh unbitten Secret Avatar. We will choose certain people who hunt them as winners, who will receive a Gift Card and be able to exchange bites with Mars Bracken or Lyle Maeterlinck.

After all the weekly winners have been chosen, we’ll pick one at random to win Lyle’s soul.

How will we select the winning hunters each week? Spam biters will not be considered. We are looking to foster the spirit of true hunting – RP, conversation, seduction, diplomacy – these are the things we’ll be looking out for in a hunter.

We will announce who won, as well as the final winners of the souls, here on the Bloodlines Blog.

So get out into the grid and start hunting! Someone is going to own Lyle Maeterlinck’s soul – it might as well be you!

Happy Hunting!

Bloodlines 7th Anniverary Event – “Halloween In May”

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

We’re excited to announce an official grid-wide Bloodlines Event – The Bloodlines 7th Anniversary Party! It’s been a fantastic 7 years, and we’d like to celebrate. The theme of this Anniversary event will be “Halloween In May”, because let’s be honest, Halloween really should come twice a year.

The event will start on May 1st 2015, and run for 1 week. During that week we’ll be connecting participating Haunts up via the website and the HUDs, so that you can easily travel from event to event, while discovering new Bloodlines-friendly locations. Mars, Lyle, and Noire will be visiting participating locations, and we hope to see you there!

For Haunt owners, this event means a chance to raise awareness of your clan land, club, bar or RP area! The Anniversary Event will provide an influx of new visitors, as well as give you a chance to network with other Bloodlines friendly locations. Players will be able to vote on their top 3 favorite Haunts they visited during the week, and the top 3 Haunts will get banners that will run on the Bloodlines homepage. Voting will start on May 1. During that time, all you need to do to vote is press the ‘Vote’ link next to the 7-year anniversary icon on the profile of participating haunts.

Getting involved is simple:

Location Owners – If you already have a Haunt, just log into your profile, Edit Haunts, and opt-in via the radio button for the 7th Anniversary Event. Make sure to use the Haunt Events calendar to schedule specific times for your events.

Bloodlines players – On May 1st, The 7th Anniversary Event will automatically generate locations in your HUD, under the Haunt button. We’ll also make it clear on the website which locations are participating, so you should be able to easily find the next great location to visit!

At the end of the week on May 6th, there we’ll wrap it up with an official party on the Bloodlines sims, so be sure to stop by. See you there, and thanks to everyone for making Bloodlines a vibrant RP community for 7 years running!

The Pub Crawl is an event for bars in Second Life. Anyone owning a Bloodlines Haunt can opt-in, and anyone with a HUD will be able to participate in the crawl.

What specifically does this mean for Bloodlines players? It means during that week we’ll be connecting participating Haunts up via the website and the HUDs, so that you can easily travel from bar to bar, and meet up for a drink with people while discovering new Bloodlines-friendly locations. It also means you may have a chance to hang out with Mars Bracken and Lyle Maeterlinck, who will be on the crawl as well.

The Crawl will provide an influx of new visitors, as well as give you a chance to network with other Bloodlines friendly locations. Players will be able to vote on their favorite Bars, and prizes will be awarded at the end. Also, Lyle and Mars may visit your bar during the event and share with you a bottle of Vital, Moonshine or Cider, and chat about Bloodlines.

Getting involved is simple:

Bar Owners – If you already have a Haunt, just log into your profile, Edit Haunts, and opt-in via the radio button for Official Bloodlines Events. Lyle and Mars (and everyone else participating) will be picking bars to visit based on 1) The photo in the Haunt profile and 2) The Haunt description text, so be sure to put in as much inspiration as you can!

Bloodlines players – On March 17th, The Pub Crawl will automatically generate locations in your HUD, under the Haunt button. We’ll also make it clear on the website which locations are participating, so you should be able to easily find the next hot location to crawl to!

Contest: Win a 20-Liter or 200-Lumen Container

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Last week, 3 lucky Bloodlines players won a full 5L/50Lumen container just by participating in 5 Bloodlines bite or claw attacks. This week’s contest will be a little more challenging: turn one fresh victim to a vampire or a lycan before midnight SL time this Saturday, and you’ll be entered to win a free, full 20-Liter blood Tank or Cask, 20L Cider Barrel, or a full 200-Lumen Bone or Iron Prism. Any of these containers will satisfy the Curse for 80 long, dark nights. To win, you must be the first one to bite the fresh victim or the first person to bite them after they drink the Wormwood potion, and then they have to fill to 5Liters of Vital or 50 Lumens to turn full Vampire or Lycan. Good hunting and a full moon to all the Bloodlines night stalkers out there…


Congratulations to Azazel87 of The Vampire Blood Horde, loveless Carpathia of Rogue Coven Clan, and Anahi Sheriffe of Rose Noire Horde! Each of them have won their choice of a full 20-liter Tank, Cask, or Cider Barrel, or a 200-Lumen Prism!

Drawing for Free Blood, Cider, or Lumen Containers!

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

This Saturday night, we’ll be doing a drawing for three free Bloodlines containers, filled with 100% pure Bloodlines Vital Blood, freshly fermented Bloodlines Cider, or bright Bloodlines Lumens. All you have to do to enter is share a vampire bite or lycan scratch with 5 of your friends between now and midnight SL time on Saturday. Being the attacker or the victim counts. These don’t have to be shared with fresh victims, they can be with any 5 Bloodlines players. The three lucky winners will have their choice of a Tank, a Cask, a Cider Barrel, or a Bone or Iron Prism. Winners will be announced here this Sunday, so get out there and get your hunt on!

UPDATE: Out of 566 Bloodlines players who qualified by being involved in 5 or more vampire or lycan attacks in the past couple of days, we have randomly selected SissaPantera, LadyYepperz, and TitanCronnos! Each of them will be receiving their choice of a free, full 5L Blood, 5L Cider, or 50-Lumen container. Congratulations!
