NEWS:

MOULagain

Keep your eye out for concurrent events! Donahoo’s Cocktail Party and Karaoke are just some of the events that are making plans to run concurrently with SL.  Guild of Messengers is also ramping up to help keep folk connected. Some events will be moving exclusively to the Cavern. Please keep me advised on any plans you have. I am also looking for reporters who will let us know what is going on in the Cavern, or in any other ‘age’ they happen to reside in. IM DMom2K Darwin SL or Dudemom_2000 over MOUL Forums for further information.

Those marker missions……oh how they drove us crazy. I kept pretty much all the notes I ever made playing Uru and I consider this the gem of my note collection – a set of the best maps of the city and marker missions made by mark_AF. I had the priviledge of meeting him in the Cavern during Live and was able to thank him for his contributions.  City Maps  Thank you again, mark!

EXPLORING SECOND LIFE – DECAY
Jandai Writer

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Twas/180/95/30

Random teleporting to places with interesting names saw me arrive at a place called “Decay”.

Decay Landing Point

The first thing I saw was a waterfall – large and lovely to look at. What surprised me, was seeing the tanks at the top with coloured liquid dripping from the taps. I never did find out just what they were used for – the liquid dripped into the waterfall, but did not seem to change the waterfalls water in any way.

Decay scenery4

I only found a few signs of where its name came from. Mostly it seems I found sculptures and scenery.

Decay scene

I decided to test the waters, and found they were not too deep to wade in. Past the waterfall and a sculpture at its base. There was a small camp fire to the right, but I didn’t stop there. I waded over near what seemed to be a tractor on fire, and after inspecting that (the rain should be able to control the small fire) I explored the crooked house nearby. I found some enormous ropes holding onto what seemed like an island in the sky, but I could never find a way up.

I have some pictures of Decay, including a cave I managed to find half way up a sheer cliff. Don’t ask how I got up or down, I’m still not sure myself.
