Honey the Conqueror

This is Honey Bernandes, owner of Vivid and the FIRST vendor of the game to have survived!
She beat the lag monsters and the stone monsters and came in 20th after dying ONLY 6 times!

Honey feeling a little bit worried...

Honey, tell us, what did you think of the game experience?
This is Super Amazing...I always enjoy MadPea Hunts, but this one was by far the Funniest & Unique. Can't wait to see what will be the next Hunt & wait for it anxiously :D

Were there any surprises?
The parts I was surprised the most was the Eye Statues / Golems & end where Glass Floor breaks & you fall to the Tomb Gifts

Going to kick some Golem butt!

Honey, we’re curious.. what was your favorite part?
OMG so hard to decide...from beginning to end was my Favorite...but the part I mostly laughed was the Eye Statues. Sharing the time with Vamparo (my partner) and just having fun makes it awesome

Did you get stuck anywhere or needed help?
Umm...I personally didnt have any issues, but did need to ask for a hint at Garden of Dreams...when they said "Far Away", didnt expect it to be at the end of the World LOL!

We saw that you died only 6 times, that's really impressive! What was your secret of surviving?
Oh WOW! Welllllll, I actually died 2 times on purpose to start over with my Partner...I think doing the Hunt with him was the best part. He died so much I would laugh very hard where stomach was hurting. But don't worry Babe, you eventually Survived :D
As per my secret? I'm play a lot of Online & Video Games (including Tomb Raider) so I felt in the Zone LOL!

Honey's partner, Vamparo being just a little frustrated with the Owl Guardians

How did you discover Second Life and how did Vivid come to existence?
A friend mentioned to me about Second Life...I was curious & like most, I got addicted. I became a DJ & enjoy it to the fullest, which I am still a DJ, but wanted to try something new, which made me decide in starting my Store & it has been a nice Journey. One of the 1st Hunts I did from MadPea was Sanity Falls & since then I have done pretty much all MadPea Hunts. Recently decided I would love to participate as a Vendor. I got accepted to The Lost Treasure of the Inca Warrior & it has been an honor working with such a great & well organized Team, I would surely love to participate again.

Please tell us a little bit about your store and your products?
It’s still in the process of Expanding...But I mostly sell Female Clothing (Mesh & Non-Mesh) & a Few Male, which I have been working to place a lot more options to sell, including Shoes & crossing fingers everything turns out well.

Finally, what would you like to say to the Peas that have not done the game yet?
What are you waiting for!??? I tell that to my friends, when I talk to them about MadPea Hunts "This is not a Traditional Hunt & I can assure you will enjoy it...DO IT!!!"
Special Thanks to ALL The MadPea Team!!! Their creativity is mind blowing & unique...You are masters of HUNTS & Keep up the great work <3
Check out this awesome prize that you get from Honey after completing the game! A full outfit for both sexes! Most definitely worth dying for. :D

Then there was ONE...

She hunted for the virgin eyes, snapped the electric eels in half and slayed the stone golems... She persistently played for 7 hours and 15 minutes, died and was resurrected 19 times....
Ladies and gentlemen, we present you our Survivor, Xill Flux! *loud clapping*

First person to survive the Devil's Cave - Xill Flux

Kiana met up with Xill to talk about the adventure. 
Kiana Writer: What was your secret of surviving?
Xill Flux: Mostly it was just a matter of knowing where each of the deathtraps was and avoiding it on your next runs. I've done a lot of obstacle-course type play and dealt with severe lag on a fairly regular basis, so avoiding death was one of the easier parts.
Kiana Writer: What was the hardest part?

Xill Flux: The Astrology door. I couldn't figure that one out at all. I ended up having to wait until someone else managed to open it, then see how they did it.
Kiana Writer: ooh yeah.. might need some googling there, but yeah, that's our most challenging puzzle in this game
Kiana Writer: Have you played our games before or was this your first one?
Xill Flux: I've played a few. I try to make it to each month's game, but I get distracted quite often.
Kiana Writer: What were your favourite things about this game?
Xill Flux: Well, other than the prizes; I liked that it had a bit more of a gameplay feel than most of the standard hunts. It's also nice to see such heavy use of mesh, since it's still not often used in sim builds.
Kiana Writer: Would you say that you play mainly for the prizes or for the experience?
Xill Flux: Most hunts I'd say for the prizes, but this one was a lot more intricate than most. I'd say this sort of hunt is just as much fun playing as it is finishing.
Kiana Writer: And yes, prizes! We have some pretty amazing prizes in this game.. not to mention, you're getting 10k lindens for being the first! Did you think you were going to win it?

Xill Flux: I really didn't. About the first time I died, I figured my chances were shot, and that someone would make a perfect run in about an hour. By the time I got up, and was told that I was the first, I was amazed.
Kiana Writer: I heard that the person who came second really thought she won and was shocked to see you sitting there by the prize caskets :D Anything you'd like to say to her?
Xill Flux: We'd actually been chatting a good way through the hunt, and she did a very good job. The person who came in third seemed to be nearly three hours behind her.
Kiana Writer: yes, indeed

Kiana & Xill chatting and keeping an eye out
to make sure that stone golem doesn't dare to escape!

Kiana Writer: What are you planning on doing with the prize money?

Xill Flux: I'm hoping to put it towards a fund to have a custom mesh outfit/avatar made, to go with a sim I'm working on.
Kiana Writer: oooh.. tell us a little bit more about that sim
Xill Flux: Well, since I joined SL, I've been primarily part of the Military Community. The whole community is stagnating a bit, and I know there are a lot of small groups who would like to join in, if they could afford a sim. The idea is to make a sim that they can "Take Over", to have a home for their group.

Kiana Writer: That's a great idea, I wish you all the best with that
Kiana Writer: Military.. that might explain your survival skills :)
Xill Flux: Aye. The person who came in third is actually also someone who's been highly active in the military community.
Kiana Writer: Heheh, that's really interesting!
Kiana Writer: Final question for you.. What would you like to say to encourage those who are struggling with the game?
Xill Flux: Hrm. The course itself is mostly a matter of practice. If you have difficulties with a specific puzzle, though, it's definitely okay to ask others for help. Most everyone around here is friendly and have different strengths and weaknesses.
Xill Flux: That, and be careful of lag spikes. xD They can be lethal.
Kiana Writer: lol yeah, don't try to jump past lava then

Kiana Writer: I learnt that the hard way
Kiana Writer: or try to get past the owl pit
Xill Flux: I hope everyone manages to get through without too much pain, and to have fun. xD

Kiana Writer: YAYY!
Kiana Writer: Thank you so much Xill and congratulations on winning!

Xill did so awesome! Stay tuned, the Game will run until May 31st and there are plenty of surprises ahead!

Welcome to the Game!

Welcome treasure hunters & adventurers!  

You are about to join the latest interactive grid-wide game by MadPea Productions!

You will begin on a lovely boat HERE.

Take a safe and relaxing cruise on El Guisante Loco!
Nothing can surely go wrong here, right?

Ancient Incan stories whisper of a hidden cave in the remote mountains of Ecuador where a vault lay sheltered from the light of day, untouched for centuries. According to legend, the vault is filled with precious gems and unimaginable treasures that are ripe for the taking. Previous explorers have left a map that leads to the place the locals call "The Devil's Cave". Scribbled on the back of the map are notes citing encounters with horrific creatures and deadly traps that guard the cave. Many who have tried to find the treasure returned with terrible injuries, missing limbs, and some never returned at all. However, not everyone is so unfortunate, and that is why we're offering you the chance of a lifetime.

MadPea Cartographers have deciphered the cryptic treasure map for you.  This will not be an easy task, but if you survive and unlock the ancient Incan vault, you will be generously rewarded. Ready for a Treasure Hunt of a lifetime!?

The first one of you who completes this mission will be entitled to a reward of:
on top of all the other prizes!


How to begin:  Purchase the HUD from the mystical crate for 100L and wear it. It will set in its correct position on your screen. Once you purchase the HUD it will ask you which viewer you are using. Make sure to select the one you are planning to use for the hunt.
You will receive free HUD updates.

We STRONGLY recommend for you to use the latest official SL viewer or latest release of Firestorm for the ultimate immersive experience of the game.

The Game HUD - It keeps track of your progress and it also has a Health Bar.
You will soon find out what the symbols mean.

Please understand that this game is a point-and-click adventure game.
That means that clicking items will give you clues to advance in the game.
Your ultimate goal is to find 15 items in grid-wide locations, 
eventually taking you to the final game play area where you will be rewarded with


- To HIDE the HUD, simply click the minus symbol on top left corner

- You must wear the hud at all times to be able to get clues and prizes.

- Allow the Windlight settings when entering the sim. It will set the atmosphere for you.

- Reduce draw distance to max 128m and turn up the sounds.

- Please remove facelights and heavily scripted objects.

- Allow the regions you enter enough time to rez, so that you can see everything clearly and not bump into random people and objects.

- The game is full of traps and puzzles. Think about your actions, you can actually die in this game. Flying and double-click teleporting is forbidden.
- To discuss about the game or ask for help, you can join the MadPeas group and talk in group chat. We will also post clues and happenings on our facebook page.


The following rules and instructions must be followed to ensure that everyone gets to have a nice gaming experience.

NO GRIEFING - the locations that you will be visiting are participating only in allowing the use of the area. The environments do not belong to MadPea Productions. Do not grief their other customers, visitors, members or residents. Do not break their posted rules.

GROUP TAG RECOMMENDED -  When you are playing we would really appreciate if you wear the MadPea Group Tag.

MALFUNCTIONS - We are aware it is Second Life which has its own issues that we can not control, such as location logouts, reboots, or lagging and crashing. We have conducted several pre-game walkthroughs to make sure the game runs smoothly where it should, but we make no complete guarantees that there will be no issues during the game.

Should anything happen beyond our control that disrupts or halts the game, we will announce it in group notices at the first possible opportunity, providing further instructions relevant to the issue.

REFRAIN FROM BAD SPORTSMANSHIP - Do not harass other players, do not instigate conflicts, and if you get stuck, no whining and complaining in group chat.
When you enter a new region, give it some time to rez before bumping into everyone else.

GROUP DIALOGUE IS ALLOWED - You are allowed to communicate in group chat and help each other out. You are however NOT allowed to give out an exact locations of items and answers to puzzles.

Please note:  Team play is allowed, however, do remember that this is a one winner for the Linden Prize. Only one player will be rewarded the $10,000L. If that player previously agreed upon a split of the reward among team members, that is at the winner's sole discretion. We at MadPea Productions will not dispute nor mediate player deals gone bad.
The Winner will receive their prize money on Monday at noon SLT, when the winner will also have an interview with Kiana and have their picture taken for our Blog and FB.

Have a blast! The game will blow you away - literally.
