Bloodlines Hunting Contest

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Hunting_Contest

In an effort to encourage the spirit of true hunting, we are holding a grid-wide contest. There is no purchase necessary to enter, and the prizes will be the souls of Mars Bracken, Lyle Maeterlinck, and Noire Luminos.

A representative from Bloodlines will be roaming the Second Life grid as a fresh unbitten avatar. Once a week, we will choose one person who is attempting to hunt them as the winner. The chosen hunter will be able to exchange bites with Mars Bracken or Lyle Maeterlinck, and then be entered to win one of the three souls at random.

The periods will be:

June 1st – Aug 23rd      |      Aug 24th – Nov 15th    |     Nov 16th – Feb 8th

After 12 winners have been chosen weekly, one of the twelve will be picked at random to win the soul, which will also be picked at random between Mars, Lyle and Noire. Then the next 12 week period will begin, with one winner getting to exchange bites and be entered into the drawing for the next soul, and so on until all 3 souls have been given away.

How will we select the weekly winning hunter? 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 each week, who won that week’s bite exchange, as well as the final winners of the souls, here on the Bloodlines Blog.

So starting June 1st, get out into the grid and start hunting! You may just end up owning Mars Bracken’s soul!

Happy Hunting,

Lyle Maeterlinck, Mars Bracken & Noire Luminos

Bloodlines Haunt Update

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Greetings everyone! We’ve added some new updates to the Haunt system that we’re very excited about. We’ve already updated the web profiles, and if you own a Haunt you’ll be receiving an updater shortly. Just rez it on the same sim as your haunt, click it, and select ‘update’.

Included in the Update:

1. For haunt owners:
– Ability to activate / deactivate your haunt from your edit haunt profile
– Ability to add managers to your haunt who can add, edit, delete events, and update your haunt profile.
– We fixed a couple of issues, like the 16 avatar sensor limit, and added options for how visitors on your haunt are counted. Just go to settings > area type, and select ‘region’, ‘parcel’, or proximity, and that’s how your haunt will count visitors. For the proximity mode, you can set the range up to 96m.
– Also, if you accidentally mess up the textures on your Haunt, you can go to settings > reset textures to reset them to default.

2. For Haunt visitors:
-You can now show your support for haunts by setting them as ‘favorites’ on the website, and they’ll show on your profile!

Thanks to everyone who had the great suggestions for these features!
