Welcome to II. DEADPOOL. II – Dark Experience
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fantasies%20III/74/220/22

0829Thurs_002
The sims description reads:
“Aged elegance reborn. DeadPool .. a new experience to be explored.
The bygone disco days are being reborn, or rather, rising from the dead!
Zombies roam the overgrown and wistful spaces of the forgotten amusement park’s edges,
while in the center the old roller-disco flashes with lights,
and pumps out music from amazing DJs for our patrons to dance to.
Skate around the fringes of the party, or take your chances in the park.”

The Opening Party is Saturday Sept. 7th starting 6am-slt- UNTIL

30.08_042

“Woooo!”, we exclaimed as we read that, and explored onwards to put a descrip into our own words…

30.08_064 (2)
Here you will find Carnay in Carnal-veil, mashed with fun horror, & clingy zombies
(They do watch your every move)

 0830FriGothCircus_036 0830FriGothCircus_037

There are Merry Go Rounds, mini rockets, UFO rides and a large Labyrinth to play hide and go seek in.

 30.08_025 30.08_086  0830FriGothCircus_03130.08_053

There is  a club here set in an crumbling theater, Where the DJ was packing them in.
stop in for the party and meet new folks!

30.08_102
If you don’t feel like clubbing you can hang with your buddies on the benches and dark misty corners of the sim.

 30.08_071 0830FriGothCircus_042

This sim is stimulating, with colorful lights, eerie moans, creaks, pops and hisses.
Comical & Gothic like characters, all in a fun yet sinister amusement park.

Fall In Travel Troopers,
Its time for Part 2 of 3 Mainland Mayhem!

Today we continue with our operational maneuvers thru the mainland.
Our strategic goal is to pin point and locate interesting sims for your delight and eradicate our enemy- boredom!

CHO

Marching forward & Boots down we enter Kissling, a sim fortified with older shops running since 2003.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kissling/138/59/71
Feel Free To Browse, & Save a Linden or 2. There are very unique items here. (I’ve even found a Raggedy Ann Doll!)

Mainland Mayhem2 10

Kissling is a quirky town with hyper cars, trucks and taxis that WHIZZ around corners and up and down each street very quickly.

Mainland Mayhem2 9 Mainland Mayhem2 7

While you wait by the cake shop you will notice a trolley or tour bus beckoning for you to board it.
Go ahead hop on! It moves very quickly, so hang on to your Cyrup (wig), As It travels across sim borders onto several towns.

Mainland Mayhem2 8

When the trolley paused in The region of Boardman, We decided to take a look around & investigate.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Boardman/191/20/24

Mainland Mayhem2 6
This is A small suburban community set in a nice, quiet region without stores and looming towers.
They have an Open Air Market, A Town Hall run by Jack Linden, A Quaint Church, which has small town USA’s charm and appeal.

0814WED4_009

Wander the Boardman sim. You can rez in designated areas, set out vehicles to drive, or boats to navigate the long meandering river into other sims.
********************************************************************
Our next tour of duty brings us to Frog Rd. The LM provided is the starting point.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mavericks/71/42/32
Here you may rez your own vehicle, or board the idle city bus.

Mainland Mayhem2 2

This Bus can hold up to as many friends that you bring with you, and will carry you all on a very long scenic route past unusual builds, stretched bridges, streams & mountains.

The Mainland holds some of SL’s oddest & oldest communities,

Mainland Mayhem2 1
If any of the lands piques your curiosity then by all means saddle up and explore!

Ahoy Shipmates!

A vast array of pirate ships and galleons, all of which are for sale, line the harbour and docks.

SL Destinations: Forgotten City

Greetings fellow adventurers,

04.08_steam12

Today the Wife and I ventured into the AMAZING Forgotten City.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_007

04.08_steam11

A Steampunk world of Gears and Steam, Industry and Automatons,

04.08_steam10

04.08_steam20

Air Ships and Rockets set over many levels.

04.08_steam9

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in settings inspired by The Industrialized Western Civilization during the 19th century’s British Victorian era or America’s “Wild West”.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_022

From the starting point in the lower City you will find information and a teleporter to the many other activities and points of interest.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_004

We started our visit by taking in the sights by Hot Air balloon, and then by Boat through the winding canals.

04.08_steam19 0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_034

Brass Autobot Citizens can be found occupied, or walking the streets tending to the workings of the city, along with many clockwork cats.

04.08_steam17 04.08_steam7

On the Toy Factory’s platform you are able to buy many of the vehicles, buildings and objects found around the city.

Here you can sit and enjoy some interactive games.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_014

There is a racing track with cars free to rez, or if you fancy your chances fighting extraterrestrials, an Alien hunt game.

04.08_steam21

Still feeling in the mood for activities? Why not take a chair lift to the mountain summit and compete with friends in the long distance ski jump.

 

04.08_steam1

After that you can dance away into the small hours in the ballroom or relax at the sausage stand.

04.08_steam2

Many of the buildings are available to rent so if you enjoy your visit as much as we did you may want to make your home there too!

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_016

 

‘Til the next time 🙂
