The second annual STEAM: The Hunt begins today! STEAM, The Hunt, the most popular and successful Steampunk and Neo-Victorian merchants hunt starts off with a kick-off party at the HMS Rustbucket, from 6 to 8 pm SLT, in Mieville Doyle (just follow the SLurl to the Rustbucket)!

To outline STEAM, I've taken the liberty of re-printing their narrative...
STEAM: Steampunk Travelers' Event, Adventure, and Megahunt!
Welcome to the second STEAM: the Hunt! This event will start March 1st and run until March 31st, 2010. The gifts will remain available for the entire month, if you can find them!
There will be many Steampunk-themed gifts to find, hidden throughout the grid, in the participating shops. You'll be offered a variety of gifts as you search for the hidden items. Only high-quality designers have been invited to participate, and their exclusive items will be available only the duration of the hunt.
As with most hunts, you'll be given a starting location. That location will give you a LM to the next, and so on. Although you can begin anywhere, we suggest that you start here:
(Mieville starting point)
We ask you these favors:
Please do not contact shop owners directly. All inquiries should come to Perryn Peterson in the form of notecards as IMs are frequently capped. There will be a website and blog as well.
Please respect everyone participating: designers, shop owners, and other hunters.
Please keep your ARC as lower as possible whilst hunting; do not wear a lot of primmy items, scripts, and laggy items like meters and HUDs. These will slow things down for everyone.
If yo uopen a package on anyone's sim, have the courtesy to delete said package or pick up your items before you leave.
Enjoy and bring lots of friends with you!
THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPAPATING IN STEAM: THE HUNT!
