Carver's End Help!

Carver's End Game Help and Info

Game Requirements

There are 2 things you NEED to have in order to play. First is the CARVER'S END RADIO HUD, it is pictured below. The HUD will give you text and audio messages that are essential to game play. It also has a HELP button that will bring up this guide and a HOME button that will teleport you to the beginning in case you get lost.


You should have received this at the landing area. Search your inventory for "CARVER'S END RADIO HUD" if you find it, right click and choose wear, and it should appear on the upper left side of your screen. If not look click one of the Game package givers at the landing to get a free game package.

Secondly you NEED to accept the PULSE GAMES experience key. Experience keys are second life's method for giving a game or other experience extra control over your Avatar without nagging you for permission every time. "CARVER'S END" will only be using this to teleport you automatically. The first time you encounter and item that is using our experience key you will get the popup shown below.


Select Yes to use the Pulse Games experience key and play "Carver's End". Experience keys are fairly new to Second life and are not supported by all 3rd party viewers yet. You may need to update your viewer or use the Official Linden Labs viewer. For more information about experience keys check out Experiences in Second Life

Game Play Help

Sound is very important to the game so make sure you have it turned up. Explore the town of Carver's End, Read the text and Listen to the sounds for clues. Click most everything, especially Doors, Ladders, Man hole covers, etc. There are a lot of little surprises and extras throughout the game. Join the in-world group "Pulse Games" to chat with other players and get hints. If you get totally lost click the HOME button on the Radio HUD to return to the beginning.

(Please Do Not give away locations of items or other spoilers in open chat or in the Pulse Games group chat. It spoils the experience for people that want to discover these things for themselves and if we catch you doing it, we will ban you from the game. Keep spoilers and item locations to private IMs)

Hunt Items (Rats!)

Carver's End is both a Horror Halloween Game and a Free prize hunt. There is no master list of prizes and we have no idea how many prizes our vendors are putting out. Hunt prizes look like a Rat and may be found hidden or out in the open all over the game. If you find a Rat that is not working please let us know so we can contact the vendor to fix it.

Dealing with Greifers and other Nonsense. 

If someone is being a jerk or causing problems in the game we need your help to stop it. Please tell us the name of the person causing the problem and what they did. You can do this either in the "Pulse Games" group or by IMing Roblem Hogarth directly. As we are not on 24/7 and it takes time to ban someone, remember you can right click them and select Mute and Block to protect yourself. But please get the name to us as they are likely bothering other people as well and there is nothing we can do if we don't get the name. 

Carver's end is across multiple sims in order to help with lag, and sometimes sims reboot so please be understanding and try again later if some part of the game is down. Lag of course is going to happen, remove as much heavy prim attachments as you can to help. Lag is more of a problem when we first open than later on. If you are having real problems with lag please try later. The game runs at lease 2 weeks after Halloween s there is plenty of time to check it out when lag isn't an issue. Using the experience keys is very new to us and there may be unenforcible issues. If you are experiencing strangeness (outside of the game itself) please let us know.

Remember to have fun!
