EXPLORING SECOND LIFE

JOURNEY TO INNSMOUTH PART 2
Jandai Writer
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/33/222/25

(continued from: What?  Innsmouth?  That isn’t where I was supposed to be dropped off!  I couldn’t believe it…I had been dumped in the WRONG place! )

‘Don’t panic…everything will be just fine’ I thought to myself, trying to remain calm. 

It seemed like the best thing for me to do, would be to find a telephone and call the travel agent.  Surely this mistake could be easily rectified.

Looking ahead, I could see an enclosed bridge, and ignoring the fact that it was tilted to one side, I headed towards it as it seemed like the closest thing to a proper shelter I had seen thus far.  Testing the wooden flooring, I found it to be solid and stood just inside the entrance and out of the continuing rain.  I stayed there for a while, drying off whilst I contemplated the predicament I was in.  Once dry, I started looking about some more.

It was then I noticed the old rusted car on the Western side of the covered bridge (the direction from where I had come from).  It looked like it was from the 1920’s.  Lamenting the waste of must have been a lovely looking car, I stowed my luggage within the covered bridge and continued east.

Rusted vehicle and my shelter

Coming out the other side of the bridge, I noticed another broken 1920’s looking vehicle.  Then before I had even had time to wonder about the similar ages of the cars, I could see another 1920’s vehicle sitting on the road ahead of me.  What WAS this place?  Had time stopped here? 

Old vehicles from the covered bridge

Finally the rain seemed to have ceased.  I was able to venture futher from my shelter and couldn’t believe what I could see.  In the area I had arrived, it looked as though a fire had raced through at some point.  All the houses had the same dark, almost charcoal appearance.  The trees were all charred and burnt, and some of the houses and even a church only had the shells remaining.  Shivers ran down my spine and I decided to head further east just as the rain started again.

As I came to the car I had seen from the distance, I stopped short.  On my left, ahead of me and across the bridge was some sort of creature.  I couldn’t see it properly from where I was standing, but it did NOT appear friendly.  I crouched behind the car and took a picture with my polaroid camera.

It was hard to see the creature properly through the bars of the bridge railing, but the picture was the best I could do, as I did not want to get any closer.

Creature through the bars

It was time to go a different direction…

URU Cavern Skydivers moved here when URU game shut down 2 years ago.   Now the URU game is back up and running most of us have rejoined our friends there too.
Our place here in Bestone was a home for all of the ppl that came from URU to SL.  From there we scattered to other areas in SL.

The property will be sold and and any profits will be donated to Eder Gira
as no individual in the group can make a profit from the sale.

TWO LARGE PLOTS ON WINTERFELL REVERIE
Dot Macchi
Available late March/early April
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/152/45/26
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/151/155/23

If you’ve been following the Developments in Devokan thread on MOUL or the blog at http://blog.devokan.net you will have seen that the Devokan team is currently in transition to a new set of regions on the OSgrid.

As a result, two large plots of land, each 6144 m^2 with a prim allowance of 1406 prims, on the beautifully themed Winterfell Reverie island will become available in late March/early April.

Winterfell Reverie is part of the Winterfell group of eleven fantasy medieval sims and three fantasy Tudor/Elizabethan/Victorian sims. To quote the covenant: ‘Winterfell is a twilight fantasy region designed and inspired by stories, dreams and creative interpretations of reality.’ More details about Winterfell (including the covenant) are on its ning site at http://winterfell.ning.com .

Winterfell is to the north of Caledon, so it makes an ideal base for exploration by the extensive waterways (both plots have direct access to river or sea) or by air. Indeed, a ferry system is currently under development to serve the Winterfell community and even reach Caledon Cape Wrath.

If desired, existing buildings could be left on the land (e.g. Rustica Seaside Cottage and Skye Castles Gothic Keep) for people to furnish as they wish. They are lovely buildings, and work well with the island’s architectural theme.

The rent/tier is 3000 L$ per week, payable to a tier box in the Winterfell Estate Office. The estate owner is the helpful and obliging Miss Serra Anansi.

If you are interested or would like more details, please contact Dot Macchi before 24 March. Thanks!

====
PS It’s such a lovely area that I shall be staying here, but in a smaller corner plot. Dot.

SERENITY MYST
Issis Ceriano
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Budantsev/168/160/38
From the notecard:

Serenity Myst is a new retreat for writers and artists.  Decorated in a bit of steampunk, a bit of myst, and a bit of nature.  Whether you’re looking for a quiet place to write, read, or work on your artwork, Serenity Myst is open to all. Along the side is a garden set up for book readings and a stand that’s open for showcasing artwork.  If you want to book a reading or an art showing, contact Issis Ceriano.

Fans of books and art are welcome to visit any time.  Or anyone needing a quiet place to escape for a little bit.   No living quarters are available, but there’s plenty of good spots for chilling out for an hour or so. Much of the steampunk furnishings come from the March Steampunk Hunt.  The main building was purchased by me before the hunt.  The tethered shed is from the hunt. Most of the Myst decor comes from the store Things You’ve Myst that’s closing this month.  Other decor comes from my stores or my own purchases. Myst themed music is provided by three different players.  Two in front of the main building, another on the second floor.  Only one can play at a time, but each plays a different soundtrack.  Click their bodies for instructions.

I am an executive owner of Marion Margaret Press, publisher of genre fiction, managing editor of Whispering Spirits Digital Magazine and Whispering Dragons Digital Magazine, and I run Claw and Quill Writer’s Guild, who hopefully will come to know Serenity Myst as home.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

 A tradition for many hundreds of years, May Day Baskets are popular
 among children and meant to demonstrate the joy of gift giving.
The history of May Day dates back to pre-Christian Europe as a
tribute to Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers. Flower-centric
festivals are customary still today. Often popular among children,
the first day of May has slowly evolved into a celebration of giving,
once referred to as “bringing in the May.”

The tradition of May Day begins with a basket or container brimming
with flowers and small gifts. The May Day basket is quietly and
secretly placed on the doorstep of a neighbor or loved one,
demonstrating the gift of giving without receiving.
Children and adults alike can participate in the joy of the holiday
by making a special basket for a friend. Gather fresh spring flowers
and small branches or twigs to fill a decorative container that is
sure to delight its recipient. Try these quick-and-easy ideas to
create a charming May Day basket.

HIRO PENDRAGON ON THE SHIFTING FOCUS OF VIRTUAL WORLD PLATFORMS
Hiro Pendragon (Ron Blechner)  – Pixels & Policy blog

“This year will see increasing corporate and academic use of virtual worlds for private, individual ventures. Marketing efforts in virtual worlds are pretty much frozen solid, but will thaw a little proportionate to the recovery of the economy.”

Interesting article by Hiro Pendragon (Ron Blechner) – well worth the read.
