“Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest
Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”
It seems appropriate that I start this blog post with the first two lines of this famous sea shanty, from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
You ask why? Well it is like this … *inserts image*.
-Hanaya- Pirates Backwoods Rum Still (Hunt Edition)
Today is the start of the Plundering Villages Hunt, and of course, -Hanaya- is participating in it. Who could resist making something cool for the pirate in all of us?
And I did have tons of fun – especially with the custom-sculpted still I made, complete with copper tubing partially submerged in a crate line with tin, filled with rippling water to help the condensation process. The set comes with 8 looped animations, 6 in the menu-driven bench and two that let you tend to the fire and fiddle with the tube apparatus. And of course the rum barrels give you and your pirate friends jugs of rum so you can
get properly wasted quench your thirst.
Speaking of wasted, my fave animation is in the bench – and that is all I am saying. You guys need to discover the rest for yourselves!
The Plundering Villages Hunt starts on September 1st and runs until September 30th, 2011.
-Hanaya- is number 67, and our hint is “In t’ olden days a lot o’ pirates ended up in a shallow grave somewhere by t’ aft door.”
And when you find the -Hanaya- Hunt gift, beware!
