Kudos Spotlight: 3 New Kudos Opportunities

Greetings Tribe!
With all the fishing and vigils going on it's a busy time for lucky tribe. Well don't relax yet. We have 3 new Kudos opportunities.
Our first shop is Framelight [K.O.] Khan Omizu Textures! Wonderful building and fabrics. They have two lucky chairs there. The ones with the signs above them are the tribe chairs.
Our second location is The Mad Catter, cute neko clothes for both him and her! Come check them out at Their lucky board is upstairs.
Finally, one of our newer locations, Onium Dye has added a lucky koin to their Lucky Dip! Get your hazmat gear ready and take a dip! . Check out their great textures while you are here.
I have a special tee shirt for the first three people who send me either the statement, "I'm a fish tiki supporter." or "Down with Fish Tiki". On top of my blog badge they will receive a t-shirt expressing their opinions that Ross was so nice to make for me.
Good Luck!

LDNKBO: Fish Tiki has his day!

While I was in the Water Tiki temple yesterday, cleaning up after the successful vigil over the weekend. By cleaning, I mean talking the snails that live there to keep on moving... I received message from Fish Tiki. It was very demanding even for him. Now I normally don't have any issue with this and told Water Tiki all about it. Water Tiki in his wisdom asked me, "Beast". "Kraken" I answered and the font of wisdom opened up in my mind! It said, if we do what Fish Tiki demands there will be a LDNKBO!
OK, I know what you are asking. What is a LDNKBO? Well its a limited duration no kudos badge opportunity and one is going on right now. Well since all the other Elemental Tiki's have been have gotten so much attention by the tribe trying to bring back Lost Tiki from the LoDK (Land of Dead Kudos), Fish Tiki has become a bit upset. See, he has determined that he needs as much attention as all the other Tikis got added together. So, from what he claims, even though we completed all of the necessary ceremonies to bring Lost Tiki back (with rich LDDKO [Limited Duration Dead Kudos Opportunities]), Fish Tiki is blocking the gates to the LoDK and preventing him from coming back until we do as he says.
Now after doing all of his culinary chores, Blackened Unlucky Fish and Mushroom Soup hunts he now wants us to do his housekeeping. And with all of the Lucky and Unlucky fish living in his pool at Lucky Tribe HQ, there has been the normal and abnormal bickering that happens at family reunions and this has lead to a few, oh lets say, accidents. The bottom of Fish Tiki's pool is full of many dead fish. You would think with 7 Kraken spawn living in there (Air, Water, Fire, Water, Ghost, Tiki and Lost varieties included) all catch able and all chock full of your daily Kudos needs, they would have dealt with the bodies, but it turns out they are very picky eaters. There apparently are 77 dead fish in that pool and they need to be fished for.
I received an odd pictogram before I left to go to HQ and didn't have a chance to decipher it before I joined my fellow Tribers and Tribbettes at the sight of the cleanup. Fish Tiki looked happy as he saw members of all of the elemental tiki's followers doing his bidding. I chastized Fish Tiki for his behavior and broke out my fishing rod. The tribe seemed to pull together to work well toward cleaning up the pond. I started fishing. I didn't catch one all night. After all, what type of bait do you use to catch dead fish? Anyway, if you catch one of the dead fish, on top of getting a little smelly, you get a badge. There are no Kudos associated with the badge, but for all you badge collectors, it's well worth it on it's own. So head down to LTHQ and catch one of those dead fish (uncommon).
I worked to decipher the pictogram, a slice of ham, a well drawn picture of a neko, a children's spinning toy, wavy lines a crude picture of a tiki and a Buddhist Monastery. I figured out what it meant and made my way back to Water tiki temple and found a neko waiting for me on the roof. He asked me not to give his name, but he said he was the unofficial priest of Lost Tiki and proceeded to rant for an hour, he claimed that Fish Tiki was trying to take over and prevent his Lost Tiki from coming back. I looked at his kudos points and noticed he had very few, he said he spends all of his time looking for lost tiki and has had no time to devote to anything else. His main point was, "fish are for eating not giving commands." I wandered away a little numbed after the incident and had to think, had Fish Tiki overthrown Lucky Tribe?
This afternoon I received a message from his Fishyness, "The Great And Mighty Fish Tiki, Keeper of All Things Fishy and slightly whiffy, wishes it to be known that:TWENTY THREE Loyal and fishy Acolytes have removed decomposing fishy lumps from his beloved pond.Also, be it known that - in recognition of SPEEDY, TIMELY, and EFFICIENT fish-lump removal (i.e. being the first acolyte to get her hands dirty), Cherry Kirktown has been granted the honorary title of: FIRST PRIESTESS of FISH TIKI, for the next 2 weeks." Congrats Cherry!
Well I'd like to hear your thoughts on the Fish Tiki disruption. If you have not received my badge yet, please write me a note in world saying either, "I for one would like to welcome our new fishy overlord!", "Oh, come on Miranda, this is Fish Tiki we are talking about." or "Viva la Revolucion!" to describe your stance on Fish Tiki's ascendancy. The first three who send me their vote will receive my I love the blog badge.
Good Luck!

A Postcard from Lost Tiki

Oh oh… it looks like Lost Tiki has really outdone himself this time, and found himself stranded in the Land of Dead Kudos. Ever wondered where all the abandoned, used-up, and plain-forgotten-about kudos boosters disappear to when they're not clicked on any more? That'll be the Land of Dead Kudos. It's a bit like the Elysium Fields of ancient greek mythology… only with grass skirts, lounge music, and exotic cocktails.

Anyway, all good things come to an end, and Lost Tiki has finally decided it's time to come home… there's only one problem - the trip to the Land of Dead Kudos is, traditionally, a one-way ride. There are no return flights. Extracting Lost from this world of missed kudos opportunities could take exceptional measures….

But there might be a way! The oldest Tiki priests recall a forgotten age when the ancient feast of "The Reaping" took place in late August. Opinions vary on the origins of this feast… some folk claim that it was tied up with harvesting that usually takes place around this time of the year… while other (more clued-up?) individuals claim that the festival was actually to do with the reaping of souls, and transitions from the mortal plain to the Land of Dead Kudos.

Here's the plan: The ancient Elemental Tikis believe that - for the duration of The Reaping - it might be possible to open a portal to the Land of Dead Kudos. To do this, they need the power of worship …. more specifically: the power of VIGIL worship!

Event Rules:

The Festival of the Reaping runs from NOW until Sunday 29th August.

If at least ONE elemental vigil is fully completed - at any Lucky Tribe temple - during this period, a gateway to the Land of Dead Kudos will be opened, and Lost Tiki will be able to escape.

A vigil only counts as valid if it has at least ONE vigil virgin taking part in it (i.e. somebody who hasn't won a "completed vigil" kudos badge before now answers at least one of the Tiki's questions).

As thanks for aiding his escape from the Land of Dead Kudos, Lost Tiki will bring gifts - These gifts will take the form of "resurrected" kudos boosters from The Land of Dead Kudos, giving people who missed them the first time round a NEW chance to win these (otherwise unavailable) badges.

On Monday 30th August, ONE previously-dead Kudos Booster will be returned to EACH temple that successfully completes a vigil during the course of "The Reaping" - meaning Lost Tiki could return from the Land of Dead Kudos with up to FOUR "dead" badges.

The exact badges to return will be nominated by the high priest/priestess of each temple (or, in the event of AWOL priests, their second-in-command will be consulted). The badges must be the "standard" in-store kudos booster type badges - i.e. a lucky chair, lucky board, fortunes, or lucky dip. Got something you REALLY want to see restored for a week? …tell the priests!

The resurrected kudos boosters will be placed in the relevant temples, and be winnable for a period of one week… after which, they will slip back to the Land of Dead Kudos (their presence in our reality is, alas, only transient!)

Good Luck! :)

LDKO: Friday the 13th: The Unlucky Fish Returns

Way back when the world was new the Tiki Gods decreed many things. For example that swallows would return to Capistrano on March 13th, that you would always loose socks in the dryer and that on Friday the 13th the Most elusive of Lucky Tribe fish would return to their spawning ground at Lucky Tribe HQ .
Now you might ask yourself, Unlucky Fish, isn't that against the concept of Lucky Tribe? No, Lucky Tribe is concerned with Luck of all varieties. Think of the Unlucky Fish as the Tribes scape goat. When you can't get that chair to flip, it's probably because some wild unlucky fish is hiding under the chair or is in the next region. So do your part in restoring the luck to HQ by catching one of these ultra rare fish.
Oh, if you haven't received my new blog kudos send me a note card telling me "I embrace all forms of Luck." The first three people who send me that will receive my badge.
Good Luck,
Miranda Foehammer
PS. I got my three notecards. Stay tuned new ops soon!

Snap Happy Kudos return!

During a waffle induced stupor, the ferret had a vision of a Tiki with flaming eyes that commanded , in a voice that cannot be disobeyed, that this weeks Snap-Happy kudos should be awarded to:
  1. Qadira MacIntyre ,
  2. Mana Honi ,
  3. and
  4. Louise Dirval

Kudos Spotlight: Kahli's Closet!

Greetings Tribe!
Well Lucky Tribe has another great new location. It is Kahli's Closet. It has some great clothes and boots. This time for guys and gals alike. Come check them out at
If you have ever been interested in shaping the future of the tribe, head up to Lucky Tribe HQ @ and look at the feet of Mentor Tiki for a clip board. Click on it and answer a few questions for Shep. He will greatly appreciate it. There's no kudos in this one, but as Shep says, "You will get a warm fuzzy feeling."
Also if you have not given tribute to the great Tiki gods this month there is the new Lucky Tribe VIP (August) badge that you can get for making a donation at the board at HQ. Think of the termite treatments and Kraken extraction fees we will be having to shell out to free poor Fish Tiki and subsequent child support fees (look closely at your krakens). If you have not received my new blogging badge, send me a card in world reminding me to, "Think of the Saplings!" and the first Lucky Three will get my new badge.
Good Luck Tribe!
Ok folks enough people have thought of the Saplings for now. I've given out the 3 badges for this time. Thanks, keep reading!
