SECOND LIFE EXPLORER
LOST WORLD
Jandai Writer
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Beguile/127/72/23
So after some recent harrowing adventures, it was decided that I should take a relaxing break.  Why I thought a visit to Lost World would be relaxing and a break, beats me.

I could tell straight away this had once been a beautiful place, and that something had happened here.  I wasn’t about to get caught up in a “what happened to this place” again, so I tried to explore whilst just enjoying the scenery.  Not an easy task. I headed in a South West/Westerly direction and marveled at the wonder that was before me.  Picking my way across some rocks, I took some pictures as I did so.

Lost World 1

I finished up on the SW corner and could see some fallen columns…no, not going to wonder what happened here…

Lost World 2

I found a kind of bridge and made my way across it, avoiding the broken bits…but once on the other side, I realised there was a way across the bridge which was underneath where I had walked.
I headed back across the top, and found the way across from the underside…but wait, that is a corridor off to the left…So I headed down a couple of corridors before coming across what appeared to be a sliding door.  How strange, a sliding door amongst these ruins… I opened the sliding door, and to my amazement, I found– (you’ll have to explore and see for yourself).

PURGAL ADGE MARKETS – MARKET STALLS FOR RENT
SkydiverAnarta Fall & SkydiverColorado Calloway

From the notecard:

Shorah All.

Do you make things and don’t know where to sell them? Have you ever wanted somewhere to market your goods on the Mainland? Would you like a market stall and pay no rent? I have purchased some land on the mainland and turned it into a market place.  All you have to do is to donate your 512 land allowance, choose a stall and away you go. Each stall carries a 50 prim allowance. If you want a stall, but do not have the land allowance available, then stalls are being rented for 160L per week for 50 prims

Please contact SkydiverAnarta Fall or SkydiverColorado Calloway for further information

CLAIREHAVEN ESTATES
Sandi Glas
From the notecard:

Clairehaven Estates was established in 2008 to create an affordable alternative to land ownership.  From the beginning, Veronicaa Ninetails and Sandi Glas have worked hard to provide a stress free place to live and play and relax, all within a libertine community of “family” who live together in peaceful coexistence.  We currently have five regions, and though they are not themed, each has a character all its own.  Land is available in a variety of sizes, and priced modestly to better help everyone develop the home of their dreams.  Contact us, or visit one of our properties today.  The landmarks below will take you to the tier boards for each region, and you can visit a land simply by clicking on the tier box and receiving the LM to that particular parcel or island.
