We’re excited to announce the next official grid-wide Bloodlines Event – The Gallery Tour 2018! Last year’s event was such a great success, we’re excited to see what everyone will come up with this year. It will start on September 3rd and run to September 28th.
The Gallery Tour is an event for people who wish to show off their collection of Bloodlines Rares. It doesn’t have to be a bona fide gallery, it could be a dungeon or a room in your house, or any place you like to show off your collection. Also, to win you don’t necessarily need to have the largest collection of Rares – judging will include looking at the style and atmosphere of the place, organization etc. Anyone owning a Bloodlines Haunt can opt-in, and anyone with a HUD will be able to participate in the tour.
What specifically does this mean for Bloodlines players? It means during that month we’ll be connecting participating Haunts up via the website and the HUDs, so that you can easily travel from gallery to gallery, and meet up with people while discovering new Bloodlines-friendly locations.
For Haunt owners, this event means a chance to get your location on the map! The Gallery Tour 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 Galleries, and prizes will be awarded at the end. Mars and Lyle will be visiting participating locations to help with the final judging of the top locations, and we hope to see you there! On the final day (Friday September 28th) we’ll be having an event on the Bloodlines sims, and we’ll give away the prizes.
Voting will start in a few days and run until September 28th. During that time, all you need to do to vote is press the ‘Vote’ link next to the Gallery Tour icon on the profile of participating haunts.
Prizes (Awarded at the end of the Month):
Gallery Tour Participation Rare – Given to anyone who opted-in their location to the event. (Limit one per avatar)
10 Runner-Up Rares (Silver Crown) – Given to the best 10 Galleries (or more if judges decide there are more worthy runners-up).
3 Top Rares (Gold Crown) – Given to the top 3 Galleries. These will also receive a banner on the Bloodlines homepage for a week following the event.
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 Gallery Tour Event. Make sure to use the Haunt Events calendar to schedule specific times for your events.
Bloodlines players – The Gallery Tour 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 month on September 28th, we’ll wrap it up with an official party / awards ceremony on the Bloodlines sims where we’ll deliver all the prizes, so be sure to stop by. See you there!
