Hypergrid Adventurers Club visits Dune-inspired science fiction world – January 10 2012

The Hypergrid Adventurers Club took a trip from jokaydiaGRID to OSGrid, where we visited an amazing Dune-inspired Sci-Fi area created by Lani Global Systems.

Read on for a summary, some pics, and instructions on how you can make the journey yourself.  Be sure to mind the sandworms.

Our starting point was the region Scooter on jokaydiaGRID, and our final destination was the region Lani on OSGrid.  A total of 19 avatars made the journey together.

Since the region Scooter on jokaydiaGrid and the region Lani on OSGrid are very far away from each other on the Hypergrid (about 8,000 regions apart), we had to make 2 hypergrid jumps and visit 1 intermediate grid during our journey.

Getting ready on the region "Scooter" on jokaydiaGRID.

From there, we all jumped to the region Gateway1 on Sanctuary grid.

Meeting on the region "Gateway1" on Sanctuary grid.

For our final jump, we jumped the region Lani on OSGrid.

We arrive at our final destination, the desert planet of Dune.

You can get this free ornithoper vehicle to fly around. Great fun!

There's also a free personal hovercraft available.

I told you WATCH OUT FOR SANDWORMS ARRRRGH!

The whole area is stunning.  Must-see’s include the sci-fi themed store (lots of freebies), a hidden underground aquifier, and a giant space station far above the planet.  Just walk in the main pyramid and you can find teleports to all these different places.  Be sure to try some of the quests, too.

Lani Global gave me a tour of mission control. And a cool gun.

If you complete the Rare Radion Crystal quest in the Aquifier Caves, you get this award!

If you’d like to make this journey yourself, just get an account on jokaydiaGRID, log in to the region Scooter on jokaydiaGRID (it’s the default arrival point for new accounts), and then follow these instructions:

Make each of the jumps by following these 4 simple steps
1) Open your World Map in your viewer.
2) In the text box next to the Search button, enter the Hypergrid Address.
3) Click the Search button and wait for the map to move to the destination region.
4) Click the Teleport button.
