Today, the Hypergrid Adventurers Club took a trip from jokaydiaGRID to the OSGrid home of Linda Kelllie, a talented content creator who gives away a wide range of excellent items (including OAR files of entire regions) on her website LindaKellie.com.
Read on for a summary, some pics, and instructions on how you can make the journey yourself.
Our starting point was the region Scooter on jokaydiaGRID, and a total of 10 avatars made the journey together.
Since the region Scooter on jokaydiaGrid and the region My Place on OSGrid are very far away from each other on the Hypergrid (about 9,000 regions apart), we had to make 3 hypergrid jumps.
From here, we all jumped to the region jump4000 on OSGrid.
For our next jump, we all hopped to the region GermanGrid Gate on GermanGrid.
And finally, a jump to the region My Place on OSGrid.
After we arrived, Linda Kellie met us and welcomed our group. Thank you again, Linda, for contributing so many free items to the community. You work is inspiring.
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

The reverse trip is still impossible. The jump4000 to scooter still generates an unable to verify identity error. I hope to visit sometime.
Thanks Miso. And I’m talolty with you on the lessons that successful games and MMORPGs can teach online communities. That will be the focus of many of my future blog posts. I’m finishing up some drafts right now.As for the 2 games I explored in depth recently, they were “Fallout 3″ and “Amnesia: The Dark Descent.”
