Forty people play a cross-reality, mini ARG (Alternate Reality Game) locative story quest as part of the 8th LAMP residential in Marysville, Victoria, Australia.
The video shows mostly one of the four teams doing the challenge. The mirror build in SL of the old house where we had the workshop, has clues within puzzles that point you to real world locations and real world locations pointing back to Second Life as part of a quest to uncover the truth. Based on a fictional story by Gary about early settlers, an ancient spell book, witches, the war and evacuated school children, the quest moves into the grounds, secret parts of the building, a nearby sculpture garden and ends in a chanting fire ceremony. Other media involved included live mobile phone, role playing, walkie talkies, framed photographs (with hidden phone numbers), websites, cards, placed props/objects. Many seen in the video.
