"Is there anybody there?"

A new round of Enchantment opens on 1 May with the theme of Sleeping Beauty. Augurer of Luminary has created the Beatrice outfit especially for it. Inspired by sleep, the outfit represents a nightgown and robe. There's nothing to stop you wearing it during the daytime however.

The format of Enchantment is very different this time around; the releases are not to be found at an event location, but in the designers' mainstores. (Be honest - with all the events nowadays, when was the last time you went shopping in SL stores?)

To encourage you to make the trip around all the stores, there's a very special incentive in place - exclusive prizes, which will never be available again. You just need to get your card stamped; and everything is explained after the jump.
The Enchantment stamp card - how to use and redeem your prizes

If you buy an Enchantment release from any of the participating designers,  you'll find a stamp card inside when you open the package.

Wear or add your card or cards, go to each of the stores and click/touch the Enchantment stamper machine you'll find there and it will 'stamp' your cards. It works on multiple cards at the same time, so it makes sense to wear them all when you are getting your stamps.

When you've collected all 20 stamps, you'll get a message in local chat giving you the SLurl to the secret prize gallery where you can redeem your prizes.

IMPORTANT! When redeeming your prizes, ONLY WEAR ONE CARD AT A TIME.

Sorry for shouting, but if you accidentally wear more than one card when you redeem a prize, all the cards you're wearing will be 'spent', and you'll only get one prize. You do not want that to happen!
Wear all your cards when you are collecting stamps, but be very sure to only wear one card at a time when redeeming prizes.

Once you've made sure you're wearing only one card, select your prize and click the machine. You can check what the prize contains, or redeem your card. Once you confirm that you really do want that prize (Gimme!), voilĂ  it's yours!

The cards are also transferable - so you can give either full or empty cards to friends.

Honestly, the prizes are very impressive. If you think visiting 20 stores is a lot of effort - trust me, for what you get in return, it so isn't.

There's a fatpack of a special hair from Mina, wimples (five colours!) with detachable crowns from Luminary, a special pose prop from The Annex, jewelry set from O.M.E.N, and so much more.

You can also choose from any of the prizes - just because you bought from Store XYZ doesn't mean you have to the take their prize if you like a different store's prize better.

The Listeners

"Is there anybody there?" said the Traveller,
Knocking on the moonlit door;
And his horse in the silence champed the grass
Of the forest's ferny floor;
And a bird flew up out of the turret,
Above the Traveller's head:
And he smote upon the door again a second time;
"Is there anybody there?" he said.
But no one descended to the Traveller;
No head from the leaf-fringed sill
Leaned over and looked into his grey eyes,
Where he stood perplexed and still.
But only a host of phantom listeners
That dwelt in the lone house then
Stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight
To that voice from the world of men:
Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair,
That goes down to the empty hall,
Hearkening in an air stirred and shaken
By the lonely Traveller's call.
And he felt in his heart their strangeness,
Their stillness answering his cry,
While his horse moved, cropping the dark turf,
'Neath the starred and leafy sky;
For he suddenly smote on the door, even
Louder, and lifted his head:--
"Tell them I came, and no one answered,
That I kept my word," he said.
Never the least stir made the listeners,
Though every word he spake
Fell echoing through the shadowiness of the still house
From the one man left awake:
Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup,
And the sound of iron on stone,
And how the silence surged softly backward,
When the plunging hoofs were gone.
