Sekret Babbage

I’ve always been fascinated by secret rooms, hidden tunnels and narrow alleyways. After taking Miss Junie on her first tour of Babbage I was reminded of a hunt idea that had fallen by the wayside. So instead I’ve taken the liberty of posting a collection of photos of some of Babbage’s concealed, hidden and just out of the way places (or at least the ones I know of).

How many do you recognise?

(No homes were used in this. I know there are various hidden rooms in a few places, and some of the things people have in their skyboxes…)

    I’m willing to put up a 1k linden prize for people to find these places before he posts the answers.

    I know 8 of the locations. Not bad for someone who never tried to find the “sekret Babbage”. Anyone got more than 8?

    I counted 21 I know.  Theres a couple I could swear I’ve seen before, but can’t remember the location of.  Then the couple I havent got a clue about.

  6. Yang Moreau Yang Moreau July 27, 2011

    lol I think I recognize a little over half.

    I know at least a dozen of those.  Having lived a few decades in Seattle, and having explored it’s underground many times, I know these places give a heart and soul to a city – even one as dark and forbidding as Babbage.

    Who remembers what used to be under the CocoaJava Cafe when it was in the Palisade?  I wish I had a pic of that to share but alas!  Maybe Kaylee does?  *grins*

    19 and 20 are easy. And I definitely got lost in the sewers once and ended up in some of the other places.

    I recognize quite a few, but some are a mystery to me.  Is the urchin hideout in Wheatstone gone now?  I used to sneak in to steal biscuits now and then…

  10. Gabriell Anatra Gabriell Anatra July 27, 2011

    I’ve been to most of those, but some are still unknown to me.

    I’ve run across a couple that aren’t there.

    I think I know of all but 4 or 5 of them. It is quite fun to find such places when you are exploring.

    i think i have more exploring to do

    • Dr. Cyberusfaustus Dr. Cyberusfaustus July 28, 2011

      The same must be said for me. Would you like to join me for walk of discovery? Anyone else interested in trying to see a bit more of the city? Just be sure to wear appropriate attire.

      Thank you Dr. C and Nathaniel, our charming urchin guide through the sewers.  We found a few of the spots above and the rest will be for another time.

    Hee! This is great. Most of the ones I recognised could be subtitled “Holes I have Fallen Down”. :D

    Actually, please keep the identities of these places secret. Posting the pictures piques our interest. Posting their identities or locations ruins our apetite for adventure. If you want to post the list, perhaps post it in a secret place somewhere in town?

    there are 2 i can’t identify, but one of those i can take a very good guess at where it is due to the builder’s style, the other i’m less sure about but think i know what lot it is on due to terrain features.
