MadPea’s Missouri Mystery Motel

Missouri Mystery Motel, a new mini mystery game made by MadPea, is out at 6º Republic and you’ll want to play this one! Note that the rare Motel is required to start the game. So Livvy and I drive up to the front desk in our groovy camping van that we’ve been sleeping in for days on the road. We finally found this motel in the middle of nowhere – thank goodness! I hadn’t showered in days and I was in need of freshening up. We rolled up in the thick of night and were rudely welcomed with absolutely no service. Livvy was a butt and continued to ring the desk bell. After a long day of driving, her incessant dinging of the bell was the last I needed! We’ve been taking photos throughout our road trip so I pulled her away from that stupid bell and took a selfie with her with our state of the art Polaroid camera. What we thought was a fortunate find of a place to sleep quickly turned into our greatest nightmare. Please send help*!!!

MadPea Missouri Mystery Motel | Mine & Yours

MadPea’s Missouri Mystery Motel gacha set is at 6º Republic. It’s a mini mystery game with an achievement and extra prize. There are 25 Commons and 2 Rare items in this set. While most items are static decor, a few items are absolutely necessary for the game to function. Once you have collected all items in the set, rez out the Rare Motel as well as everything else. Cam into the Motel and click the light switch located in the office and select “Game On.” This will automatically move all game pieces into the Motel! How easy and convenient is that?! I love that feature.

A Tale of Two Sisters

April’s round of Epiphany opens on the 15th at 10PM SLT and MadPea has released a very special and exclusive treat for you all. The gacha set, “A Tale of Two Sisters,” has a little game to the story of Soleil and Luna, and if you are able to figure out what the spiritual and intergalactic mystery is, you’ll receive a bonus prize and achievement.

A little addition to Epiphany: We all know that you can use points to redeem exclusive prizes, but Epiphany has added a VIP prize option too for those who spend $L1000 on a machine. MadPea’s A Take of Two Sister’s VIP prize is the Dark version of the Floral Spirit Board. The exclusive prize is the Moon Catcher.

The MadPea A Tale of Two Sisters set includes 27 Commons, 3 Rares, 1 VIP, and 1 Exclusive item, as well as bonus game prize if the mystery is solved. The gacha set features an original mystery story with an achievement and special bonus prize. This set is impressive and comprehensive as there are not only decor items, but interactive ones as well. I did not showcase every single item in the set, but some interactive pieces are:

– The Floral Spirit Boards which are fully functioning talking boards
– Luna’s and Soleil’s Bed which comes in adult and pg versions
– Wardrobe which comes in adult and pg versions
– Ornate Chest (click to open/close, holds a mystery)
– Storybook which gives the story of the Two Sisters
– The Sisters’ Cottage (72li – click to door to open, click fire to light/extinguish, sit on ladder to climb upstairs)

To work the Floral Spirit Board, ask a question by typing it in local, starting with /99 to channel your question to the Spirit Board. The player must be near the board or the spirit will not hear the question. Once the question is asked, the player(s) must keep touching (hold left click) the board for the planchette to finish spelling out its response. Once the question has been answered, another question may be asked in the same /99 channel. The board will reset after one minute if no new questions are asked or all players stop touching the board.

MadPea’s Easter Egg Hunt

The MadPea Easter Egg Hunt is coming to an end on April 5th (tomorrow)! My last post was about the prizes, but this post I want to focus on the notable sims that participated in the hunt as well as some feedback. Like the previous MadPea hunts, my RL tends to consume a lot of my time during these events, but I did try to visit as many sims as I could to capture some magical moments in the adventure.

My MadPea Easter Egg Hunt Adventure

Day 1 – Tagus Enchanted Forest

Tagus | Mine & Yours

When I visited Tagus Enchanted Forest last year, the lush sanctuary was quite pretty. But this year, there’s something much more magical this time around. There’s enchantment and mystery in this beautiful oasis. From thick pine forests to towering waterfall cliffs… to beautiful sandy beaches to dark spiritual corners, Tagus is a land of fantasy for all to enjoy. Home to a variety of animals and creatures, Tagus does offer many opportunities for magical moments.

Tagus 2 | Mine & Yours

Day 2 – Q Isles

I was trolled. In fact, most hunters were as they endured the evil, sinister Easter Bunny that dug a million holes for us all to search through for those prized eggs. Okay, I may have exaggerated. There were only 250. Only. Welcome to the land where I wanted to pull my hair out – Q Isles. Home to fellow Sarai Wise who has graciously entertained us with countless, bottomless hole-y fun, Q Isles definitely made it difficult to find eggs. And successfully caught my attention. GG, Sarai. I did find those eggs. But, yet, I feel like my sanity was lost in the process.

Q Isles | Mine & Yours

Day 3 – Noelia Island

Reunited and it feels so good… We meet again, Noelia Island. And you are still as stunning and beautiful as ever.

Noelia Island 2 | Mine & Yours

Noelia Island is gorgeous in its natural beauty. Identifying as a Mediterranean island, Noelia Island was a welcomed warm paradise with such beautiful serenity. The lush, enchanting green meeting deep, majestic blue is something Livvy and I both love very much. These photos are merely a small part of what this island has to offer.

If you also took pictures at Noelia Island, share them to their Flickr group here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/noelia_island/

Noelia Island | Mine & Yours

Day 4 – Fanci Deep SW

I am a scuba diver in RL so I absolutely love the waters in both worlds. I appreciate when land is dedicated to the colorful and brilliant beauty of the ocean within SL. I was so happy to have come across Fanci Deep SW, only one region out of four in the Fanci Deep sims that welcome all sea creatures and divers to enjoy. Incredibly prime real estate, Fanci Deep is directly connected to the famous Blake Sea. With so much life below and above water from one sim to the next, this is a swimmer’s dream location of endless water and adventure.

Fanci Deep SW | Mine & Yours

My Personal (positive and negative) Feedback – Changes MadPea made from their last hunts:

1. No teams this time around

I am happy the Egg Hunt did not have teams since traditional egg hunts do not typically involve team effort. It more or less preserves that thrilling excitement for those who can’t wait to let their inner Katniss Everdeen out or for those who like to take time in searching for eggs wherever they may be.

2. Still no competitive cash

For the past few hunts, there seems to not be any more daily cash reward for the Top 3 Hunters we saw in the Summer Hunt. Instead points were given out, which I still don’t understand. As mentioned in my previous experience with last year’s Christmas Hunt, if you place in the top spots for hunting, points tend to not mean much and aren’t much of an incentive.

1000 Points to 1st place
750 Points to 2nd place (was 500 points last hunt)
500 Points to 3rd place (was 300 points last hunt)
250 Points to 4th place
100 Points to 5th place

There is a hard cap as to how useful points can be in the hunt system, especially for those who already have enough points to redeem all prizes. The incentive for points does not seem really enticing, especially if the top hunters are already racking up a lot of points already. However, I am glad MadPea upped the points bonus regardless for second and third place since it does guarantee at least one extra Tier 1 prize if they hadn’t redeemed one yet. Still, I’d suggest MadPea gift cards or credits instead of bonus points.

3. The Eggs/Hunt Items

The eggs were the same MadPea eggs used from 2017, yet they are still rather nice and pleasing to the eye to hunt for! Compared to the cute Christmas Toys of last year though, these eggs were a bit harder to find. There were no audible cues nor did these eggs move around once you got close. Super traditional hunt, yet I enjoyed the simplicity of it.

4. Hunting Gear

Not much this time around, but, again, happy for the simplicity this time around. For something so traditional as an Easter egg hunt, no need for fancy outfits, accessories or gear. Optional cute bunny hoppers are available for sale to make the hunt more fun.

5. Radar

I have the same issues with Easter Egg Hunt Radar as the Christmas Hunt Radar from my previous blog post:

  • Favorite Button – This seems to function only as a voting button to vote for your favorite sims, letting MadPea collect all hunter’s votes when the ‘favorite’ a sim. Then, top 10 sims selected by all hunters so far are placed here on their website. Last hunt, I thought it would also store locations of your (personal) favorite sims, eliminating the need to create Landmarks. Unfortunately, that function does not exist (yet!).
  • Hunt HUD Radar size – It seems minimizing the HUD’s real estate on the screen was not an intention. This thing takes up quite a bit of room when opened. The horizontal bar that stays at the top of the screen is clunky with no way to resize. I’d rather the section that displays the numbers be an expandable cartridge, similar to the existing window toggle for the prize display window. As a result, I just moved my Radar all the way to the right side of my screen to only display the Radar section, not even using the stats part of the HUD which eliminates 75% of the clunkiness and keeps my screen more visible.
  • HUD Indicators – The frequency of the HUD beeping has decreased (when getting closer to eggs) which I actually did not like because I rely heavily on sounds (as all gamers do to know when something is near). In addition, the HUD does not display the number of hunt items that can be found on the sim. Not really sure why that feature was taken away since it was actually kind of nice to know the quantity of hunt items there would be to quickly gage the amount of time you’d be spending in that particular sim to find all the eggs.

6. Nice Prizes!

As always, MadPea does not disappoint with the prizes! There were so many to choose from. This round seemed to be more focused on decor which would only be useful to those who own property, but there were a few things that weren’t just decor. My favorite item was actually the Game of the Goose boardgame. It is interactive and actually fun to play in a group of up to six people. If you haven’t already, check out my other post here to see what some of the MadPea Easter Egg Hunt prizes are. All prizes are also showcased on the MadPea Easter Egg Hunt Website as well as their Facebook page.

MadPea Easter | Mine & Yours

Hurry and keep hunting before the hunt ends on April 5th! Or if you haven’t started, what are you waiting for?! Go here to get started!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! If you aren’t hunting for eggs, then you are missing out! I’m sure there are many hunts happening around the grid right now, but for today’s post I am featuring MadPea’s annual Easter Egg Hunt and Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt. You won’t want to miss out on these fantastic Easter prizes so hurry and hunt for those eggs before they are all gone!

MadPea’s Easter Egg Hunt runs from March 22nd to April 5th, and the hunt is a dynamic experience where all egg hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Eggs are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption. Also, for a limited amount of time, golden eggs are being dropped from March 30th to April 2nd! These will drop surprise prizes and lots of points! Please note there is a $L100 fee to participate in this hunt. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Easter Egg Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post. MadPea Easter Egg Hunt starting location: https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Neogene/133/182/150

The Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt runs from March 23rd to April 6th. This hunt is free to participate and all eggs are located on one single sim. To reduce lag, only 25 people are allowed on the sim at one time. There are a total of 70 eggs from a large selection of designers across the grid! Check out all the prizes here.

Test My Limits

I’ve been on a bit of a naughty kick because of a certain someone *cough cough – Livvy* and MadPea’s Club Tenebris currently out at Red Light District literally came just in time. When I saw this set, I knew I had to do something with it. How could I pass up an opportunity to do a kinky picture, especially if she is the inspiration and main motivator for the pictures I create? MadPea’s Club Tenebris was the perfect scene for this sexy set up, showing two sides – domination and submission.

By the way, I’ve been hunting for good tufted wall panels that would give my “red” Master room more depth. I am so particular of what goes in that room and MadPea’s Tenebris Play Wall is absolutely perfect! My requirements were diamond velvety tufted wall panels in red with the contrast of the metal subtly locking the cushions in place. MadPea got this spot on and I am so happy to use this in my Master room.

Other items in the Tenebris set is the Tenebris couch comes with plenty of singles and couples adult animations. There’s also a texture change menu to choose between black or red. The Tenebris Cage looks fantastic with four single sit animations for the submissive. The Tenebris Wall Ring, which comes in the Full Pack) gives cuff props to the submissive and has three single restrained animations. The Tenebris Dance Pole also comes in the Full Pack and has 19 pole dance animations.

The Forgotten Dead’s Playground

MadPea released a unique, rundown playground for the March 2018 round of The Imaginarium, perfect for decorating those post-apocalyptic or wasteland scenes. I couldn’t resist a little fun and introduced a bit of dead into the playground too. Sometimes, there’s more to just wandering around aimlessly and eating brains for these zombies.

MadPea Forgotten Playground | Mine & Yours

There are 18 commons and 2 rares in the set. If you play MadPea’s The Forgotten Playground machine 20 times, then you’ll get the Gift of Imagination (GOI) item as well! Remember, once The Imaginarium event is over, this gift will be retired! Most of the items in this set is animated of some sort, making it a fun interactive set for more than just one person.

The Bouncy Castle RARE makes you bounce as soon as you get inside it, allowing you to move any which way you want in the bouncy space. In order for this awesome bounce house to work, you’ll need to make sure push is enabled on the land and that the bounce house is owned by the same owner of the land (or deeded to the land group).

The Rocket Slide (GOI) is animated upon sitting on the object, playing a sequence of your avatar climbing up the ladder and then sliding down. You can even bring up a menu to allow adjusting for your avatar’s height. The seesaw is cute, having animations for for both female and male sits, and automatically moving up and down once a single avatar is seated. The Merry-Go-Round spins and allows up to 4 avatars to sit on this item with four different animations to toggle through by clicking “swap”. The Swing Carousel spins as well and can seat up to 8 avatars with two different animations to choose from.

Konekowatch Road Rage

We’re all mad here, right? Especially with MadPea’s Road Rage gacha set for Remnant Dark Days that features a grungy-style bumper car arena that really makes for some crazy fun. Just a lil fun pic I did to showcase what a madhouse this ride can be, just like how a normal game of Overwatch tends to be for me – insane. These cute Overwatch-inspired kittens from Cubic Cherry were the purrfect (cute) drivers for this crazy ride.

Let me tell ya – I get road rage while I am driving, and I swear California is full of idiots who do not know how to drive properly. Sometimes I just wish we all drove bumper cars in RL so I can purposefully ram slow ass drivers and idiot drivers off the road to get to my destination! I digress (totally had to vent there). MadPea’s Road Rage, let’s just consider this set such a therapeutic session in SL that is not only fun but gives us all a great excuse to let out some RAGE! AHHHHHHSAKSKJSJAKFKSAKL!!!!

Konekowatch Road Rage | Mine & Yours

MadPea’s Road Rage gacha set includes 23 commons, 1 rare, and 1 Ultra rare (the bumper car arena). The Ultra Rare is the one you really want because the bumper cars actually communicate with the arena to create a carnival-style ride experience that lasts for 90 seconds each ride. Bumper cars automatically pair with the Arena when rezzed within the space. Once the ride starts, a chain at the entrance of the arena appears to keep the space safely enclosed. Once the ride ends, the chain will disappear.

While most some items in the Road Rage gacha set is just decor, there are some pieces in the set that are scripted to enhance your bumper car experience.

In each bumper car prize, there is a prop version with animations and a rideable version. Bumper cars do not require the arena to operate. However, the Ultrarare Arena requires the rideable bumper cars to properly function cohesively in a system.

There are flood lights that you can turn on/off. The Mounted Traffic Light and Portable Traffic Light have a menu to change the sequence of the lights that flash. The traffic lights also function with the Arena ride when it starts and ends.

The loudspeaker can randomly announce custom messages into local chat. Inside of the Loudspeaker is a notecard that has three lines you can put your own messages in. Each line is a different message that will be broadcast in local chat. The default time is set to 10 minutes, but can be changed via the notecard.

The Road Rage official sign can be turned on and off. While on, the sign is scripted to mock a ‘glitching’ experience by buzzing and sporadically flashing off and on.

The Rare Monster Mascot is a beast and looks pretty gnarly in the bumper car arena. You can click the hood to open and close it, and as you do so, it growls at you. You can also click to turn the headlights on and off.

I’ve completed four games so far: Sinister Slaughters, The Tower, Seven, and now Nightmare in New Orleans (NiNO). Despite the limited MadPea gaming exposure, I am an active gamer both in video games and board games so I’ll be discussing MadPea’s Nightmare in New Orleans based on my own personal tastes and perspective. My rating is completely my own opinion and will be different from everyone else’s.

Rating System

Immersion
Visuals      9/10
Sound design      8/10
Misc. (loading screens, environmental lighting, etc)      2/5

MadPea’s Nightmare in New Orleans is a visual treat. Like all the other MadPea games I have played, the adventure takes you into MadPea’s meticulously created world – this time, to the culturally rich city of New Orleans. Last time I visited NOLA was summer of 2014 where heat is no joke, the alcohol flows, the food is fresh and spicy, and the city is full of life. Art at every corner, people dancing in the streets, music in the air, so I was extremely excited for MadPea’s take on such a soulful destination in SL. Nightmare in New Orleans sends you to a handful of diverse locations within the city and each location is amazingly decorated. The space is large enough for exploration (some are massive plots!!) with relevant, high quality decor. I absolutely loved drinking in the scenery and exploring the area, finding great angles to take a snapshot.

Let’s talk about the sounds for this game – I AM IN LOVE! As soon as I heard the voices from these characters MadPea created with animated avatars, my heart just warmed and swelled with such happiness. Yes, yes, yes! The voices were so good! Voice acting is often overlooked in a lot of games and I am just so completely happy that MadPea found talent amidst the SL community. These actors/actresses really made the game characters come to life with not only depth in the voice, but such great flow and idiosyncrasies in speech patterns. Each character spoke only a few lines, but I craved more! I even clicked on characters from a distance away (when I played a second time) because I was too eager to hear the voices again, only to be greeted with the following: “Sally Dupre: I can’t hear you from there, don’t be afraid and come a little closer.” Aw dang it, the game didn’t have Sally voice that line and I was saddened. Sally, I just want to hear another line with that sultry, smooth voice of yours. One more line, please!!!

Big shout out to Dextrum Boucher, Divinity Matova, Laetitia Vella, Sassy Nitely, and Veruca Beck for their amazing voiceovers!

Anyway, as you can see, I am a huge fan of the voice acting in this game. Some other things I would have liked to see more is maybe a little bit of the city itself. Perhaps a scene outside the club in the back alley where players can hear the whines of trumpets and saxophones off in the distance. Or maybe a scene in the iconic French Quarter, just to be further immersed in the actual city of New Orleans. Each scene in the game felt so isolated from one another because they were all so different. A common city scene would have tied this all together a little bit more meaningfully to remind the players that yes, even though New Orleans is so diverse where every corner can be a completely different aspect of the city, it is still one big location.

Content
Creativity/Originality      9/10
Story      8/10

I am probably biased because I just love New Orleans, but this game left me completely happy upon completion that I may be rating each category higher than I usually would. I don’t even know if it is possible to not be creative with anything inspired by New Orleans. That being said, I really loved how NiNO’s gameplay flowed from one scene to the next. The diversity of scenes were greatly appreciated and the gameplay itself was very fun.

Livvy and I played the game together and our favorite scene was the bayou – hands down. It tied in my most fav kind of game play – hunt and prey. I had a lot of fun running around the gorgeous bayou, trying to seek out game clues while shooting zombies in the process. Livvy did not have a weapon (she lost her knife in the struggle with an alligator!) while I had a shot gun (a perk you can play for in Madpea’s Mama Mojo’s Bayou Bargains gacha). She would run around, finding clues while I distracted the aggro’d zombies and snakes that were guarding the area. My favorite part is when as soon as Livvy finds the clue, she zips away, waving “Bai babyyyy! I don’t got a weapon so I runnin’ awaaaay!” and leaves me to deal with the enemies I am trying to eliminate.

The storyline was intriguing (but then again, I don’t know if it is possible to be uninteresting when inspired by New Orleans!) and I loved meeting each character as well as completing some of their missions. The best part in terms of story was the possibility of multiple endings. For NiNO, there were two different possible endings, depending on the way you would play the game. I love that aspect as it creates another opportunity of multiple rounds of gameplay as well as figuring out how to unlock the alternate ending.

Objectives
Compelling      7/10
Variety      9/10

My favorite objectives are the explore/search ones where I have to hunt down specific items. There were a few of those in this game and I LOVED it! In fact, right off the bat, you as the player are kind of plopped into the game without much to go off on, so you have to figure out a way to advance to the next step. The logic was solid in how to search for clues, and what I loved most was that clues for a single mission may not necessarily be in that mission’s location. I love, love, love that previous scenes are also possible places to find clues because the places are worth revisiting with how detailed and beautifully decorated they are! There was a particular puzzle in the cathedral’s private office that I did not know what the relevance of it was to the theme of the game. It felt a little out of place, though it was fun to complete it.

Mechanics
Interactive      8/10
Interface      4/5

I love that MadPea took the time to make character avatars that interact with the player via menu options like a lot of story driven games we see now. Though most interactions lead to the same end result, I’d like to see more opportunities for more endings. When I was a kid, I was addicted to those Choose Your Own Adventure games, discovering what actions lead to what sort of ending. Those were always fun for me to figure out.

It is also worth noting here that the combat portion of the bayou was my favorite part! I had a blast doing that scene and because the zombies/enemies are aggro-based, not just aimlessly wandering around as easy targets, it made the gameplay a lot more enjoyable.

The interface of the game HUD was good – I have no complaints about it. Design was sleek and minimal in that the buttons were collapsible and the overall function of the HUD was intuitive. Great visual design of the HUD as well. Loved the design of the Juju coin. Really wish players got a Juju coin souvenir. In fact, I think MadPea should start one of those destination/attraction coin collection souvenirs as a rezzable prize for each game completion.

Peripherals & Prizes
Outfit/Accessories      3/5
Prizes     4/5

There were two optional outfits players could purchase – 1 for females and 1 for males. The female outfit (50’s style colorful dress) looked cute! The one for male (formal suit) wasn’t my style as it looked a bit clunky on me. The optional game accessories (enhancers) from the Mama Mojo Bayou Bargains gacha set are pretty neat trinkets. Some items are great voodoo souvenirs while other items (such as the shotgun) can give a nice advantage in the combat part of the game. Another cool enhancer is the rare Swamp boat that gives you the license to drive a boat on the actual game’s bayou swamp!

The prizes at the completion of the game are quite cool (for someone like me who likes to decorate scenes). MadPea got some amazing creators to contribute to the awards. If you are interested in seeing all the prizes for MadPea’s NiNO, check it out here.

Overall Game Difficulty      3/5

Medium difficulty. I completed all puzzles on my own except for the last puzzle which are my least favorite kinds of puzzles. I am sure others can look at it and solve it easily in a few minutes, but I was working on that thing for a while and really did not have the patience to figure it out. Thank goodness for the help of that Juju coin though.

Overall Rating       8.5/10

I had a lot of fun playing MadPea’s Nightmare in New Orleans. I know my allocated points actually add up to 8/10, but I felt that because I really did enjoy playing the game, I would bump it up a bit, especially with the awesome visual and sound designs. A game really well made with fun and challenging objectives with great visual scenes and talented voice acting – I definitely recommend this game to everyone!

This game is especially good for:
Explorers/Adventurers (curiosity is your weapon)
Challengers/Completionists (Just beat the game)
Strategists (advanced thinkers who maximize profit and minimize loss)
Creators (collect resources and build your objective)
Socializers (lots of player interaction and engagement)

The Hybrid Theory of Y2K

Music has been a huge impact on my life since I was a child and when I saw that these MadPea CDs (from their MadPea Y2K Game gacha set at Rewind) each had their own original music or voiceover clips, I greedily had to get my hands on them and play them all! With these CDs (10 total) working like they do in RL by popping them into the portable CD player as well as the disc tray of the computer, both items played the sound clips. Personally, I love the portable CD player because it functions exactly like my first CD player I ever had! You pop open the CD player, insert the CD into it, close the lid and hit play, watching the disc spin round and round through the window of the CD player as it reads the disc.

MadPea Y2K Retro | Mine & Yours

FYI – The MadPea Y2K Game gacha has a little surprise interactive activity if you collect all the CDs and use them in the computer (Rare). You also get an achievement from it for those completionist MadPea fans!

The MadPea Y2K Game gacha consists of 26 Common and 1 Rare items in this set. Only part of the set is shown above in my blog picture. Not shown are the full set of 10 playable CDs with original music and voiceovers, 3 different colored portable CD players, 3 different colored headsets, and 4 different colored desk lamps. Also, the modem plays the oh-so-nostalgic dial-up tone we all know and love when we all connected to the internet to chat on AIM, check our emails, or download music. It is amazing how much technology has changed through the years.

Special shout out to the real life talent of the following people who made the variety of CDs possible!

✄ Original Music by: Aitolda Cooljoke, Harter Fall, Pandagroov Windstorm, Stefan Hansen, and Waghorne Truss

✄ Voiceovers by: Krow Ames, Sarai Wise, Oobleck, anesphitia, Mayafayy, Jigzzz Hazelnut, iAmTheMadHatter, Veruca Beck, boldmiss, and Kaylahny
