NEW PLAYER RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
Nalates Uriah

Nalates started an interesting thread (like Nalates can’t EVER NOT start interesting threads, lol) and reading it I started thinking about missed opportunities and thought that a rather big one had been missed, hence my post on that thread. I posted it yesterday so as per usual it will either be a thread stopper (somehow I have that knack….) or I will get flamed by the yadda, yadda, yaddas of the forum. Let’s see where it goes.

D’NI WORD OF THE DAY

EXPLORING SECOND LIFE
JOURNEY TO INNSMOUTH PART 3
Jandai Writer
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/29/221/25

(Short summary: Our intrepid explorer has landed on what she thought was a stopping point on her travel itinerary. Once there, she found the immediate area to be barren, charred and falling apart. Upon coming across a sign, she realised she had been dropped off at the wrong location. Coming to grips with that, she started towards what she thought was the town and hoped was a telephone. Along the way, she finds 1920’s vehicles, some rusted, some in good condition – on her path. She wonders about the age of these vehicles, as time appears to have stopped in the area. As she starts to cross a bridge, she sees a strange unfriendly looking creature on the other side. She crouches behind the car and takes a picture with her polaroid camera. Then decides to head in a different direction than that of the creature).

I have to admit, I was shaken to the core by the creature I had seen. My picture didn’t do it justice, but there was no way I was hanging about to take a better one. I needed to find a way out of here, and I needed to do that NOW.

To my immediate right, was a street with dilapadated old buildings and in the distance I could see some sort of a park. Again, there were 1920’s style vehicles parked here and there, and it was becoming aparent this place had been left like this for some time.

Looking-South-(and-away-from-the-creature)

I started down the street, and saw what I hoped was a refuge, a church on the right hand side. Even with doors of the hinges and the seating all askew, I still saw it as a place of hope. I ignored the dirty walls, the broken windows and the dust of unuse on the seats, and even the bits of ground which had pushed its way through the floor. I had never been more aware of my mortality than at that moment, and for the first time in what had probably been years, I prayed to be safely out of there.

The-Church

Feeling somewhat rejuvenated by my little sojourn into religion, I crept out of the church. One thing was for sure: I needed to find a telephone, and hope it worked. I didn’t want to contemplate that a telephone may not work here – it was just too hard to carry on if one thought like that.

Walking south, I reached the playground I had seen from the distance. This must be the centre of town, although right now, I was beginning to feel it was a ghost town. Creepily, there was some play equipment turning around, almost as though some children had only just jumped off. The sounds in this area were making my skin crawl…

The playground was almost a centrepiece with buildings surrounding it on all four sides. One looked like a theatre, one an opera house, one a liquor shop, and what I had been looking for! a sign post read: Telephone your telegrams from here!….well, telegrams was kind of old fashioned, and the candlestick telephone in the picture didn’t help my unease…but what sent my shoulders sagging was the state of the building – there was no way I was going to be able to telephone a telegram or anything else. The building was falling apart, and anything that was left inside was long destroyed by the water and other elements coming through the broken glass of the windows.

I can’t describe my disappointment. I was stuck in an area where time had stopped, a horrible creature was nearby and I couldn’t find a telephone to get help. What was I going to do?

Info on note

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.

SPRING CLEANING SERIES
Riana Eiren
We know we eventually have to do it….Riana has some great tips on how to do it.

Here are more tips for your Spring Cleaning:

1. So you have a lot of scripts! Since there are SO MANY scripts and since they usually sport useful titles, a ranged letter folder organizational method may be useful. (A -D, E – I, J-M, N-Q, T-W, X-Z) You’ll be able to slot your scripts into the letter range folders depending on the crucial letter in its title, and find it again the same way.
(if all works as planned) That said, there is no One Size Fits All Method. You may prefer to organize by type or something else.
——————————————————————————-
2. If it works for your CD collection, why not for your sound collection? Like things together…Jazz over here, reggae over there…ok, maybe we don’t have jazz and reggae, but we have environmental and–you get it.
——————————————————————————-
3. Textures, textures everywhere and not a spot to sit? No fear! There’s an abundance (indeed even an *over* abundance–of texture organizers on the market–have a look at Xstreet. You’re bound to find *one* that helps out of all that there are, but in addition to that, consider the methods/tips suggested for scripts and sounds.
——————————————————————————-
4. Have an item you know you’ll *never* use/wear, but you got it because it was such a good deal, (or free)? Or bought it and then found out that you didn’t like it or it didn’t work and now you can’t bring yourself to get rid of it because then the money will be wasted?

If the item is Trans, consider regifting  it or donating it to a cause like RFL, care of May Rose. If you have more than two or three items, feel free to box them first. 😉

If the item(s) are no trans (like so many), put them in your “unused” folder. Then, if you don’t use it, and the item was free, tell yourself that you don’t *have* to take every free item you see; it’s like being loaded down with fat–you have the opportunity to be a whole new you!

If you don’t use it and the item was bought/unliked/didn’t work, tell yourself that it’s ok  to make mistakes; you spent the money on a learning experience, and now, that same money is going to purchase you a makeover!
——————————————————————————-
And for those who need a little extra support, look up the “Messy Inventory Support Group.” It really exists! I found it by accident when I was looking for something else. Now, I have to go and organize some more. =P
——————————————————————————-
Do you have a special tip or tool that you use to whip your inventory into shape? Don’t see it here? Send it to DMom2K Darwin and maybe it will be featured in an upcoming issue or the blog.
