Orient Express Hunt – Indonesia Path

The Orient Express Hunt, organized by Best HOME Deal, runs through October 31st, 2014, and is comprised of six separate hunt paths: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand. Each hunt gift costs 2L, so it’s not quite free. But it’s close!

I previous blogged the Cambodia Path and the China Path, and since I seem to be going in alphabetical order here, why not move on to Indonesia?

This is a short, seven-store path, and the gifts include:

Informational notecards with locations and hints can be found at the hunt signs at each location. There is no order, so it’s easy to pick and choose. Have fun, and happy hunting!

Orient Express Hunt – China Path

The Orient Express Hunt, organized by Best HOME Deal, runs through October 31st, 2014, and is comprised of six separate hunt paths: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand. Each hunt gift costs 2L, so it’s not quite free. But it’s close!

I blogged the Cambodia Path earlier, and now it’s China’s turn.

At ten stops, this is one of the longer hunt paths. And that’s not inappropriate, considering how huge and ancient China is! I couldn’t display everything, but the hunt gifts on this path include:

Mieville Halloween Village 2014!

When Wyvern Dryke, the awesome fox behind Lantian Flox, mentioned Trick-or-Treat doors at a fishing contest last night, I had to know what he was referring to. It turns out, you can go Trick-or-Treating at the Mieville Halloween Village this year! The village will be up from October 4th through November 2nd, which is great, because you will want to take your time.

When you land, be sure to grab the free Trick-or-Treat HUD. Wear it and, as you wander through the six themed areas of the sim, click on the doors you see. If the light’s on, you will get a treat from one of the many creators participating in the event. If the light’s off… Well, just try it. I dare you.

Not every participating merchant was set up when I explored there, but that may have changed by the time you get there. There was still plenty to do. Aside from the Trick-or-Treating, you can carve custom Jack-o’-lanterns courtesy of Chimeric Arts (You can’t miss the pumpkin patch near the entrance.), shop for Halloween decorations and costumes (for avatars of all sizes), play Gacha machines, bum around a spooky amusement park, read some spectacular gravestones, and more! You’ll also find quite a few freebies beyond those you’ll get from the doors; some merchants have them out, and Cog & Grog has a fine selection of their steampunk gifts on display.

Also, it’s a beautiful sim. Just saying.

Orient Express Hunt – Cambodia Path

The Orient Express Hunt, organized by Best HOME Deal, runs through October 31st, 2014, and is comprised of six separate hunt paths: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand. Each hunt gift costs 2L, so it’s not quite free. But it’s close!

I intend to finish all of the paths, but I started with Cambodia because — full disclosure here — I helped with the research for the Kittycat’s Creations gift.

Cambodia prizes include male and female outfits from Tiffany Designs; a painting desk from Cake Fox; a texture-changing rug from The Rug Shop; a texture pack from Les Sucreries de Fairy; a Buddhism oasis from Akeana’s Architecture & Accessory; beach chairs and an umbrella from Stitches Creations; and a Cambodian treats tray from Kittycat’s Creations.

The Cambodian treats tray includes fried tarantulas that are also throwable. Great for Halloween!
