Ragnar does the Great Viking Bake Off

with 7 comments


Ragnar’s been watching way too much television lately, especially the Bake Off competition series which in his case should really be banned.  This is his idea of a darn good feast and it’s held in Odin’s Hall by unKindness who so thoughtfully provided Ragnar with his ideal home.  There’s been lots of blogging pictures of the outside of this Hall and it really is magnificent with prizes of scenery and landscaping as well as the building and contents.  So here’s  picture of the inside of said Hall.  Gorgeous isn’t it? Click on the above picture for a huge version – a bit like Ragnar’s axe 🙂

The other unKindness gacha I’m featuring today is the La Confiserie gacha, and I’ve rarely seen such an amount of yummy cakes and display cases.  I’m sure Ragnar could have gone mad on the products but he wanted to make sure the extra deer got baked as well.


Here’s the Home & Garden products I used today in detail:-

Have map, will travel to Magnum Opus!

Magnum Opus - Twisted - Travel Desk unit

I’ve been visiting selected stores in the Twisted Hunt – on until the end of March. It has to be like that because the hunt drives you nutz anyway!  There’s no clues, just the slurls of the store. And the gifts are so well hidden, you have to marvel at the ingenuity of the store holders 🙂  Check out the blog – here.

I met Mr. Jetcity of Magnum Opus at the recent RFL Home & Garden Expo – one of many interesting and pleasant designers – so seeing he was one of the participants of Twisted, I went to his store to try my luck. Not only can you pick up the first prize within 30m of the landing point and famously unobservant me managed that lol… but there’s also a side hunt to win another 4 gifts. If you manage all that, you end up with a fabulous set of themed furniture on the subject of travel.  Jag is a comparatively new designer with a rich historically oriented style. His store just started in mid 2015 and already has a fair few items to purchase.

You can choose the hard or easy route for this side hunt so I thought, well doggone may as well do the hard route. I had much fun and frustration in equal amounts!  Try it, you’ll enjoy it! I’m not giving away any clues  <—- evol

Magnum Opus - Twisted - seating

Travel set pieces:

Luggage – rez as a coalesced object, there’s three luggage pieces here – LI 3 in total

Seating – look great in a themed building – Land Impact of 9 for this substantial seating, there’s 8 single poses for both male and female plus 5 couples animations

Ottoman – to match the seating. Land Impact of 1

Wall Art – a map to plot your route along the ancient mariner’s way – LI 1

Desk – my favourite piece – rez as a coalesced object – the chair is LI 2 and the desk is LI 3 with map and light censor included. The light has a great particle effect that really sets the scene.

From Twisted’s website…

“Twisted Virgins, Beware.

There’s a reason the Twisted Hunt earned the title of ‘Hardest Hunt in SL’ – and we mean to live up to that title again this time around. We promise you a full month of box-hating, obscenity-shouting, desk-kicking, brain-melting fun… a bunch of other people commiserating and shouting obscenities right alongside you… and some of the best prizes some of the most Twisted designers on the grid can wrack their brains to come up with.

We think most Twisted Survivors (and yes, you DO earn the title ‘survivor’ when you complete the hunt) would agree that this is no place for the faint of heart… but, we also think they’d agree it’s about the most fun you can have in SL with your pants on!”
