WANTED : Escape duck

EDIT> Sorry, but this event has ended. By popular demand you can now purchase the prize (rare vanda orchid planter) inworld.

Here is a video of what a typical fight looked like:

Earlier this month, Arctic Greenhouse received a shiny package containing a duck to place for Madpea's Duck Hunt. Unfortunately, I was too busy sculpting (and cursing at) tulips to properly care for and place this duck, and he evaded captivity quicker than I could say “flew the coup”. But you can help! Find this fowl escapee and bring him to justice, and we'll give you the free rare Vanda orchid planter seen below!

Now, this dangerous duck cannot and will not just be "hunted". This renegade duck is mad as hell and intends to put up a fight! Talk with our slightly-disgruntled and myopic Robot Trainer in the underground volcanic area, and learn the skills needed to rise up to the challenge of your rival - just a duck, and his will to survive!

This mission consists of 1 small hunt-challenge (finding 2 supporting items) and then preparing for and confronting the duck in a short non-interactive cutscene. The entire mission should take about 5 minutes, and you might even enjoy it! ;)

The Madpea Duck Hunt is going on right now and lasts until the end of this month, so if you'd like to check out the fun or get the free planter you'll have to get here before the month ends.

I had a blast planning and setting this up, and hope you enjoy it - any feedback is appreciated, as this was also a "test project" to see how well a fully scripted machinima-type scene would work in SL, and I'd love a reason to make more in the future if enough people enjoy it.
