NEWS:

MOULagain

We were chatting over D’ni Refugees yesterday morning and the subject of the Pods came up. Astro provided a great link to the Pod Portal calculator.  Also we are getting our fair share of newbies to the MOUL metaverse so here is the link to The Help Desk for those links and goodies you want to know. Finally I found this gem again (need to be able to read PDF)….  Only use if you really, really wanna know….

Tichelle has been faithfully keeping the KI list updated with the folk who are in here as well as MOULagain and I have been trying to add to it as I find folk. Everyone thank Ti for the incredible job she has done to get this together! (See in-world newsletter for notecard of SL folk KI numbers) To find others you may have missed who never came to SL please check out this thread (be advised, it was up to 18 pages when I last looked, lol):  KI Number List

So much to learn, so many people we are getting to know again. Let us make the most of this! Again, I would like to remind folk that if you can, please donate via PayPal to help Cyan keep this running…if not now, at least keep it in mind in the coming months (scroll down to bottom).  Link

Dot says, “Someone from Winterfell got in touch with me re Myst mentions in my profile. It turns out that he has a sim inspired by Tomahna. I checked if he would be OK about the D’ni Refugees being told about it, and he is (and he was pleased to learn about the return of MOUL).” The sim is lovely and has Tomahna inspired touches. There are several photo/art galleries here as well as a library to see. Thank you, Dot for letting us know about this and thank you, Ray, for such a lovely build and I hope to see you in MOULagain soon!
