CRUX ISLE OPENS!

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Crux%20Isle/30/229/501

More than a year ago, I started a project and was fortunate enough to have a few friends come on board to help see it through. From Monday the project, Crux Isle, will become open to the public. This is a puzzle/adventure (half sim) island and requires the user to pick up a backpack at the start. We have a group “MYSTified retreat” if people want to ask for hints/help during their time there. The attached LM will NOT work until Monday. I hope you all enjoy it.

Shorah, fellow refugees.   I am still working out the technical details for inworld publication, but my first three offerings are available now at #28 Eder Gira.

MY FIRST URU ALPHABET BOOK
MY FIRST BOOK OF D’NI NUMBERS
MY  RELTO BOOKSHELF

The  books run on  repeated loops, so a static plain cover version is aviailable for display. I have added a book of the URU calendar sparks.  So that makes four books to add to your colllection of URU memorabilia. Book covers are separate and free.  The animated content is a separate prim and is L$75 per book.  Future titles will include age guidebooks, artistic landscapes and views of D’ni “Before the Fall.”
