Applications Closed, Hunties Nominations for 2017, and February Community Party!
The applications for our 10th anniversary spring Twisted hunt are now closed and all merchant applications have been replied to. Sponsor applications will be responded to in the next 24 hours as we head into final preperations for the hunt start! If you applied and did not get a welcome pack or notification that your application was declined, please contact Rox Arten and it will be resent!
So I'm planning to stay all formally dressed and such for Saturday, but This coming Saturday is the 2017 Hunties Awards ceremony. At least 5 members of the Twisted community have been nominated. We are very excited that so many of our amazing merchants have been nominated. I will be attending the ceremony along with other Twisties who were nominated and our February community party will follow that! I am saying it will start at 4 pm tentatively because I expect that will be the latest, however, the plan is to start the party shortly after the ceremony ends. I will be still dressed formal and others are welcome to dress up in celebration however, no requirement for that will be made we'd rather you come party with us than worry about what you are wearing!
Welcome to 2018 the 10th Anniversary of Twisted Hunts & Events
We are gearing up for an exciting year, this year Twisted celebrats it's 10th year of hunts and events and we plan to make it a huge year long party. We have some exciting themes and even a few new things to celebrate this huge milestone properly! Spring Twisted Hunt applications are now open, and while merchants clean up thier booths from the Krissmuss Holiday Gift Sale event I will be remodeling my sim. By the end of January the headquarters link will be back on the site. Also I will be reworking our website to give it a well deserved facelift! Themes for the full year have been announced (Spring is Altantis, Summer is Sockdolanger (Roaring 20's), Fall is Inferno (Dante's Inferno inspired) and we will end the year with A tropical holiday for Twisted Krissmuss!) and even some new fun like monthly comunity parties and gearing up for a new sale list event we've decided to call "A Little More Twisted...Sale". On top of all that, we invite merchants who have been in twisted but not recently to apply, new merchants who have not been in twisted to apply, we're celebrating and have raised our merchant cap as well as increased the potential number of sponsor spots!
10th Anniversary Year themes all announced early!
Spring is Altantis
Summer is Sockdolanger (Roaring 20's)
Fall is Inferno (Dante's Inferno inspired)
Krissmuss will be A tropical holiday!
Twisted Krissmuss NOW OPEN!!!!!!
As 2017 nears it's end, it's time for us to have one finally event. That's right our annual Twisted Krissmuss sale is now open! For those new to Twisted, this is the one event each year we do that has no hunt component. This is a holiday sale that has a dual purpose, it's meant to help make the holidays less sucky for those who may be finding the current economy putting a damper on their holiday celebrations (regardless of which holiday(s) you celebrate)! Additionally, it's a way for myself as organizer to try to do something that may give something back to the amazing merchants who are so very generous all year long with our 2 grid wide hunts and our summer RFL sale and mini hunt event! We have a lovely holiday shopping village set up for you, there are 60 merchants who have amazing items out to shop, and there is even a gacha market area with a wide variety of amazing gachas! We have a skating rink at the event that will be our event space where live DJs will be doing holiday parties as well.
On a personal note, from Rox, I wish to extend my warmest wishes that all of our community, hunters, merchants, and lurkers alike have an amazing and safe holiday season. This time of year can be crazy and hectic for everyone but is also a time of year where we are heading into the wide open possibilities that a brand new year lays before us. I am very excited for 2018, we will be spending the year celebrating the 10th anniversary of Twisted, which is something very special, as not much lasts that long or longer in Second Life! We have lots of surprises in the works and intend to do all we can to make 2018 our best year to date! I hope you all enjoy the Krissmuss sale and your holidays in SL and RL! <3 Rox

Summer Ending and Fall Applications Opening
Time is winding down, our Summer Twisted Fairytales event ends at midnight tonight and as we bring it to a close, I want to thank all of our amazing merchants for the time, effort and money that went into building wonderful items to sell to help RFL as well as all the extras including the gachas, raffles, and auctions! We really do have an amazing group of merchants and I am honored to get the chance to work with each and every one of you! I would also like to thanks the Relay Rockers who we've worked with for the last couple of years for this event, T1 Radio who's DJ's and hosts have again done events in the region to help bring in more traffic, and to the whole community who continue to be truly amazing year round.
The Twisted Summer 2017 Twisted Fairytales wrap party will be held on July 8th. Time to be announced! This will be held at the event area, and like our Krissmuss event will be a chance for our merchants, shoppers, hunters, and everyone else to hang out and have a good time. Rox will be DJing!
All that out of the way, I have opened applications for the fall hunt today as well, this should give our busy merchants more lead time for planning which was something the feedback previously said they would like to have. Additionally, I have a few surprises up my sleeve in the coming month or so as well so stay tuned!
Summer update... and OK so Rox spilled the beans about Fall too...
Update on Summer, we have about half our store spots filled so far. If you are wanting to apply or know someone with a storey that should be in Twisted send them to the site. As for Summer, yeah, yeah, Rox spilled the beans... so a bit early but Fall Hunt in September will be themed Victorian Gothic with a Red and Black cube (it will not be a red that matches either we've had before but you have to wait to see that part)!!!!!!
Twisted Summer 2017 Fairytales Applications now open!
Applications are now open for the second annual Twisted Summer Sale RFL event! Theme is Fairytales and the cube will look similar to the posters. There are 60 total merchant slots for this event and once we reach that number applications will close!
Spring Hunt Applications Closed and Summer Theme Announcement
Twisted Spring 2017 Hunt Applications for merchants are now closed. All who applied should have gotten either a merchant welcome package or a notecard that we declined the application if they did not meet our requirements. I will be sending responses to the Sponsor applications today! The application has been removed from the site.
The theme for our Summer sale event, will be Twisted Fairytales, and it will once again be a charity event to benefit RFL!

We will leave applications open until these are filled or through the end of the day on 2/15/17 for anyone else who wishes to apply.

Any merchant who moves prior to that PLEASE be sure to notify Rox Arten with a new LM or SLURL to your store, send a notecard if I am offline please, that way I know what the random LM that showed up in my inventory is for! Thank you!

Spring 2017 Twisted Hunt Merchant Applications NOW OPEN!
Merchant applications are now open, there are 100 spots in the hunt, and 10 merchants spots available. Please be sure to read the rules and requirements as we've not added new ones but have in several places clarified old ones where we've heard that there was some confusion or heard that something was less than clear. We've also added an infringement clarification page to help those unsure what we mean when we say we have a no tolerance policy for IP infringement understand exactly what we're talking about!
Twisted Krissmuss is NOW OPEN!
Twisted Krissmuss our annual holiday gift sale event is now open to the public. Grab the location from the link in the sidebar and head over. We will have live DJ events announced in the group during the event and there will be a wrap party at the end! Happy Holidays to all of the Twisted family from the Twisted Team!
Merchant set up open for Krissmuss
Merchants now have access to the sim to set up. Please read the information in your set up packs there are two as the final set up pack contains an item that was missed and is required to be used! If you are NOT able to get to the sim check the notecard listing the logos that we did not get, anyone who's logo we did not recieve could not be assigned a booth and was not added to the access list. This does not mean you are not in the event anymore, just that we need your logo to assign you a booth and once we have it we can get you set up! PLEASE send it to Rox Arten in world ASAP. If you believe you sent it it is very possible that SL ate it. The Information notecard in the Setup pack also contains a contact form to allow you to contact Rox if she is offline without risk of IMs being lost. This is for questions and issues, and you can be as specific as needed. A reply should be recieved in lesss then 12 hours. This form is a web link that is NOT publically posted to avoid random spam!
Spring Hunt Theme/Color Announcement!
As promised the early notice continues for our next event. The spring hunt theme will be "Infinity" and the color will be a shade of green.
END GAME IS UP AND RUNNING AND WE HAVE OUR FIRST SURVIVORS!
Thank you all for your patience we've now corrected teh issues with the teleporters in end game, tested and confirmed that all is working correctly, and after letting those who were in chat at the time know we have had our first two survivors already so we are confident that we've gotten all the bugs out of the set up. We hope you enjoy the madness and fun of this hunt's end game!
End Game will be fixed soon.
Due to a teleporter issue that we've had to go in and correct. End game has been closed back down temporarily we expect to have it back open very soon everyone. Please be patient with us, we're sure you all would rather it take slightly longer as we correct the issue that had the teleports breaking rather then let you run around in an end game that is broken and can not be completed. We thank you for your understanding.
Twisted Fall Hunt has Started!
Welcome everyone to the Fall 2016 Twisted Hunt. As the hunt starts we have been notified of a few merchants who have had RL issues and others in the path of a tropical storm that is expected to become a hurricane who will be delayed setting up. Staff will be working through checking all locations as quickly as possible in the next couple of days and making note of any others who may not be working. Notations of temporary skips will be made on the merchant list as soon as possible and updated as quickly as they are set up or new ones are found. Please keep in mind as is the case at the start of any hunt there are going to be issues. We will as always get them found and corrected as quickly as humanly possible, also for those hunting in these early first few hours, please be aware we are also working hard to find cubes and make hints for any that did not submit hints, and there may not be hints for all of the locations or people able to give hints consistently right away while we work to get locations verified and issues taken care of as quickly as possible!
Now you can have your own army of Twisted Cubes for your desk!
With a HUGE thank you to one of our merchants Voidheart Mistwalker who has put together all the past cubes as papercraft patterns all of you can now have your very own RL Twisted Cube armies! The patterns and instructions can be found on his blog here!
Twisted Fall 2016 Applications Closed AND Next Event Announcement!
We have closed the applications for the Fall 2016 Twisted Hunt. For the last couple of applications you should get a reply by the end of 8/17/16! Merchant setup packages will go out to all merchants and sponsors on 8/25/16!
As is our new goal to help those who asked for more time to plan ahead, as we close applications we plan to announce the theme information for the next event. That said, Krissmuss is our next event, and well, there really is no changing theme for this one, as always it will be a holiday sale event. Intended to help people buy nice gifts for family and friends in SL without breaking the bank. The website will be getting a touch of a makeover after the fall hunt and that will be revealed and Krissmuss applications will open mid October. It will as last year be a sale event at a single location, we will decorate it as a holiday village. That said, the items you make for the event do NOT have to be holiday related since they are meant to be gifts!

We also wish to thank all of those hunters that helped out by collecting hints in the group as they were posted and sharing them when we could not be around to do so. These are some of the things that make Twisted the very special and unique hunt that it is!
We had an awesome wrap party this past Saturday, and were glad so many of you could make it out to the party it lasted more then 10 hours and we gave away L$16,000 in cash prizes to the top 3 best in Twisted Odyssey on our contest board as well as tons and tons of awesome trivia prizes donated by many of our merchants!
Lastly, just a reminder our first ever themed summer sale event will be this June, applications and information will be up on this site soon (within the next 2 weeks) so stay tuned for that!
A Special treat for our hunters and merchants!
Courtesy of one of our awesome merchants, for those who love the twisted cubes sooo much they want one for real life. Here is a link to Voidheart Mistwalker's blog post where he has both the current Odyssey cube and the previous Qi cube available as a paper craft you can download and put together!
Our thanks to him for his time doing this so we can all now torture ourselves with cubes to hide and torment us outside of Second Life!
