Magellan’s Grid Scavenger Hunt

Welcome, brave explorers and adventurers! Magellan Linden uncovered an evil scheme by the mad Doctor Talpa to build mind-controlling machines and take over the world. While Magellan builds a machine to counter this scheme, you are needed to gather materials and components — and to destroy every one of Talpa’s machines you find. Magellan has established workshops, a laboratory (even a bar) on the Isles of Ice; travel there to learn more, get equipped and start the hunt!

Visit in Second Life

Magellan Linden needs you! Well if you’re a Premium member he does anyway. Why does he need Premium members? I have no idea, but you can’t help if you’re not a Premium member, maybe Magellan is partying with basic accounts and hitting on girls, he has a reputation for booze and bawdiness. Wait a minute that would mean us Premium members doing all the work!

In the past Magellan used to write chronicles, but they ended around 2005. Magellan hasn’t been doing much since October 2008 when the infamous Nautilus City Investigation took place, you’ll find lots of links about the legend of Magellan Linden there. There you will also get some insight into the nature of Magellan Linden, as exemplified by one of the last known chat logs of the intrepid explorer:

Resident: Excuse me, but could I ask you please to move?

Resident: I mean, with that huge suit you’re wearing, it’s hard for people to walk around you in here.

Resident: Please?

Magellan: Hush, woman! I’m in three different IMs and they’re all more important than you.

Resident: But this is my art gallery. People are here for the opening party.

Magellan: Just tow it out to Weiland or Shenning. I’ll board it there, head south.

Resident: What?

Magellan: Damn it!

Resident: What did I do? Tow what?

Magellan: No, some arty-farty cow is making noise and confusing me.

Magellan: Damn it again!

Resident: Hey, wait, are you talking about me?

They gave Magellan a Mole Tank! I mean, letting Magellan loose in something like that!

Second Lie at Twitter Party

@gwenners I wasn’t gone. I was just horribly lagged for eight months. Second Lie has returned to Twitter, after his surprising and mysterious departure we have a surprising and mysterious re-appearance. I notice this on the same day that I’m seeing a lot of tweets about Magellan Linden, they can both be direct and gruff but I don’t think they’re related!

On the Magellan front, it started with an innocent look at Honour McMillan’s wares and turned into something much much darker after reading a post on The Poultry Report. The word on the street is that 2013 could be the year that the mainland menace of Magellan Linden rears his head. Magellan had completed his most of his exploring by the time I arrived on the grid back in 2007, indeed he used to document his explorations, which mysteriously stopped in 2005. However that wasn’t the last sign of the man, oh no the menace of the man would return to Nautilus.

The Wiki has a page about the infamous Nautilus City investigation, wherein a chat log is shared from an abuse report about Magellan:
