0) Join Fallen Gods Inc. Official Group (Invite in local chat from HUD giver. Group is free to join.)
1) Get the Hunt HUD from Fallen Gods Inc. in Selidor: here
2) Wear the HUD: it offers a map teleport to you, use it.
3) The HUD also gave you a hunt hint in local chat. If you missed it, press the HINT button to get it again.
4) Find ~GLORIA~ Flawed Pearl. It looks like a pearl in the middle of metal ornament. Click it, and the HUD congratulates you in local chat and offers you a new teleport. You have to be close enough to the pearl for the click to register, in a few locations you might need to fly.
5) Once you have found all the pearls, the HUD will teleport you to the Treasure Room where you will get all the prizes! Either click the item in the middle to receive all of them, or go one by one clicking the stands. Please note that some stands are there just for symmetry and don't have a gift inside.

Q) I found a pearl, but didn't get a gift!
A) That's right. Complete the hunt and you will get all the gifts at the end of the ~GLORIA~ Hunt.

Q) I closed the teleport map by accident, how do I get it up again?
A) Click the HINT button. That will repeat the next hint to you, and if you are not in the right region, it will pop up the teleport map again.

Q) I forgot what the hint was!
A) Click the HINT button, it will repeat the hint to you in local chat.

Q) I found the pearl, but clicking it doesn't do anything!
A) Check your local chat. You might be too far from the pearl, sometimes you have to fly to be within the reach. Or maybe you did get it, but the map didn't pop up. Press HINT button again to see if it will repeat this location's hint, or give you the next one with a map teleport. Also try right clicking the pearl and then choosing 'touch' from the menu. Make sure the item you are clicking is called ~GLORIA~ Flawed Pearl, and is not a promotional stand that just looks similar. Also make sure you are not clicking an invisible part of something else in the way.

Q) I've searched and searched and can't find it! Are there any extra hints?
A) You can ask for help in Fallen Gods Inc. group. Be polite, and also ask for the extra hints to be im-ed to you, to avoid spoilers in the group chat. Fallens are usually very helpful and friendly. You had to join the group to get the HUD, but if you already left it Fallen Gods Inc. group can be joined by copy-pasting this in local chat and then clicking:  secondlife:///app/group/ed1aa2db-9919-01c0-1573-624f32aad180/about
Q) I'm banned from a store on the hunt, am I now stuck?
A) Nope! Contact Sonya Marmurek and she'll help you out so you can still finish the hunt.

Q) I can't go to the next region because it's Adult rated, am I now stuck?
A) Nope! Contact Sonya Marmurek and she'll help you out so you can still finish the hunt. However, please note and be forewarned that there are several Adult rated regions in the hunt, so it might be easier to change your viewer's preferences so you can visit Adult rated regions.  Click this link for info

Q) I can't go to the next sim because it's Adult rated and I'm a child avatar, what should I do?
A) Preferably change into a non-child avatar and keep on hunting. You don't have to be an adult human, try any of the funny critters, or a dinkie cat, or even the free blue orb avatar from Fallen Gods Inc.

Q) What happens if I crash? Do I lose progress?
A) You shouldn't, nope. The HUD saves your progress to server every time you find a pearl, but since we all know how reliable SL can be, it's a good habit to click SAVE button in the HUD often to make sure it did exactly that.

Q) Do I have to finish the hunt in one go?
A) Nope. Feel free to log out and continue later. You can also detach the HUD safely and continue later.

Q) I think I'm in the wrong place!
A1) If in doubt, teleport out, for example your own home, and click HINT button again for a fresh teleport to make sure you are where you should be.
A2) Check from the hover text of your HUD what is the store name you're asked to visit. Then click STORES button and choose the same name from there. This will give you a landmark. Use it.
A3) If both of these things lead you to the same place, you are definitely in the right place.

Q) There's a lot of buildings here, which one is the right one?
A) Some stores have other stores nearby. Check your HUD, it says the name of the store you're supposed to go to with a hover-over "Visit <store name>". Make sure you're in the right store: usually the stores have their name on top of their door, but the very least you can see it from their vendors. Sometimes the beacon of the teleport guides you the right way, too.

Q) I swear the pearl is not in the store!
A) Sometimes that's true. Some of the pearls might be hidden in the surrounding area of the store, not in the actual store building itself. Read and follow the hint.

Q) I want to go back to a store I visited earlier for important shoppings!
A) All the stores have landmarks in the HUD. Click STORES button and find the store you want to visit from the menu, then click it to receive the landmark.

Q) I'm clicking a gift giver stand in the Treasure Room and nothing is happening!
A1) Make sure you're close to the stand. If you're camming from across the room, nothing will happen.
A2) Some stands are there just for symmetry. They will have general GLORIA logo instead of a store logo on them. You can also right click edit check their contents, if there's just a script there and no box, it has no gift in it.

Q) I want to visit the Treasure Room again!
A) Keep the Completed HUD. When you want to re-visit the Prize Room, just wear it and click HINT button. There will be local chat text, ending in a SLURL to the Prize Room. Use that to go back. If you picked the gifts one by one, the HUD won't show the local text, but if you click HINT anywhere NOT in Selidor, it will pop up the map to return to the Treasure Room. If you are already in Selidor, it won't work.

Q) I'm buried under all these gifts and cannot move!
A) Open them one at a time and remember to caffeinate between loot-sortings!
