Pappy Enoch Dodges Assassination Attempt!
Location: Hellbilly Paradise
It's my darned fault. Oh, Pappy, can you EVER forgive me?
I had set up our mainland parcel so that group members in Pappy's group could rez items. Stupidly, I forgot to turn on the "autoreturn" feature for other items.
Pappy visited his Moonshine still today, after doing some hard undercover reporting for the Alphaville Herald about the deaths of Sion's virtual chickens in SL (hence the chicken-suit).
Someone moved a few items from nearby onto Pappy's land, including....
A virtual nuclear weapon.
Yes, that red sphere in the photo is a "Plasma Nuke," a nefarious SL device that can go off to make a server crash. But I think that Pappy's readers at the Alphaville Herald were just showing their opinions of his fine "Ritin' Skils an' elly-cushion in jineral," as Pap puts it.
In all, I returned seven items to one unnamed SL resident. I don't know if they were all nukes.
Pappy would have been one big fried chicken, otherwise. Seems like overkill to me: get him dead drunk and you could pluck him with ease.
Update for Sept. 28: Bomb removed & neighbors warned. I fear that the big store next to Pappy's junkyard, not our Moonshiner buddy, might be the target of a business rival. Now only members of Pappy's group can enter the plot of land and no one can move items onto the property from nearby. In short, lesson learned.
