    Holy crap guys! I'm giving away free stuff! ... to the winners... of a scavenger hunt... so you have to earn it... yeah....
    Ok peeps here's the rundown...
    Sunday January 7th at 3pm Est i am holding a scavenger hunt using secret chests at the location in the picture below.

    Here is how it will work. I will have 3 secret chests, each locked with an item inside. next to each chest will be a bag. inside the bag will be books with clues to the combination for the corresponding chest. the clues will tell you to go to a certain location and count something at that location (such as how many braziers are in the mage shop named blah blah blah in papua). there will be 5 clues in each book (since the secret chest uses 5 digit combinations).

    a little before 3pm everyone needs to head to the scav hunt house in the picture above (there will be gates, chat spam, all the fun stuff). i will be setting all the bags with the clue books to public all at once, so all 3 chests will be active at once, so spread out among them if you want the best chance at winning. grab your book from a bag, go get your clue answers, come back and try to unlock the chest. 1st to unlock it gets the item.

    DO NOT just try to sit and guess the combinations. the secret chests will only allow 3 wrong attempts before being locked out of them for a full day.

    See ya there

    This was the 3rd one of these I have done and I always hear positive feedback everytime. I'm sure I will do more in the future but it gets expensive giving out the stuff. Anyone else can feel free to host them also. :)
