SL Destinations: 3 Sims of Dark Fun

Boo!

Hallow2

Did we scare you? :p

We are breaking the silence, blowing the dust off the blog’s wall & back from beyond the spirit world to bring you a dark treat.

This is a rather late post for the hallowed holiday, but wanted to get this out at least ON the night lol.

Featuring 3 spots to check out if you haven’t already. Bryn Ohs Immersiva, Alice in Wonderland, and Nuville Horrors.

These sims have been around for a while & can be visited at anytime for a nice group outing, all are interactive as well as scenic.

We hope you get to enjoy!

***********************************************************************************************************************

Immersiva by Bryn Oh: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Immersiva/35/154/23

0906Sat1_003

Find and click the messages in the bottles to follow a story, Click on the microphones to hear it being read to you.

This is a very dark sim, You will need to use the sim’s WL and wear the free headlamp to get around.

0906Sat1_004

Be careful, You can be killed & sent home by Mr Zippers, a mad robotic type bunny zipping randomly about the sim.

This sim is Eerie, Spooky, Intriguing, & worth a visit.

Slightly Dark & Twisted with a Sprinkle of Whimsy, This sim is beautiful and a delight to explore.

You will need a group tag to access the grounds,

From the landing with the adorable bunny-walk inside the tree where you fall down the deep and long rabbit hole.

1015blog_023

Look for the “key” (Group Invite) near the table and bottle., Climb through the small door to get to ground level.

1015blog_001

And…The adventure begins! A treat for the eyes and a great op for fantastic pics!

SL Destinations: Warbug

Time to kick the tires, light the fires, check six,bingo to Mom — Got it?
LOL, Are You In Aviator mode after reading that?

Bravo Zulu! 😉

 Today’s post brings us to a fun sim that is best enjoyed with a partner or in a group.

There are some regulars here and I’m sure they wouldn’t mind going thru tacticals with you.

 0401War_004

Warbug is an aerial combat game designed by Arduenn Schwartzman, It is one of SL’s popular,long running sims.

You fly small carnival like planes that perform aerial tricks, race against others through an asteroid obstacle course, & engage in dogfights.

 0401WarR_012

0313Warbug_010
It was a lil tricky maneuvering the controls on the 1rst voyage, but once you get the hang of it, you will be targeting shots and dropping bombs in no time.
0401WarR_001 0401WarR_005 08.04_018

08.04_011

24.03_009
We had a hilarious time… mostly crashing. LOL!.
But, In between the fun, Throttle Back & park in the hang out spots, or browse the shops filled with quirky gadgets and fun items. (Ewww- They have a Fart Hud for sale!lol)

 0401War_005 Snapshot_001

 0401WarR_008

You can purchase your pudgy plane on the sim or marketplace, they are very inexpensive.
You may also win 1 in the lucky chair, or fly a demo when you click the windsock located on the runway.

SL Destinations: Forest in Spring

Hello All
It is near Spring, and daydreams are looking forward to change of scenery, change of clothes, change of how and where we
spend our leisure. I know most will agree, After the long Winter months we are ready for said change.

Most may be thinking ahead to Summer and a nice hot beach somewhere, Or perhaps like me… a happy medium, cool but not
COLD.
…Maybe a place where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.
The comfortable mist and fresh smells ..of Earth, of Trees…of Grass.
Until the last of the snow melts or the freezing rain ceases, We can immerse ourselves in Second Life and get a sample of
whats to come while waiting for Mother Nature to gracefully move on to the next season in RL.

There are many Forest and Parks in Second Life, Choosing just one to blog about was a challenge,
So We will just list some of  the photogenic places for you to check out.
Since Nature inspired this post, We Transformed our avatars into Dryad Tree Spirits and set the pics to words.
We hope you Enjoy ♥

 0309Tree2_024

Affinity in Abundance, Mind & Soul may Radiate…
In the strength of Plural, unions we can create.

 Snapshot_007

Together, Spiritual growth gives insight to inner Evolution
A foundation of deep roots, nourished by virtue & altruism.

 0309Tree2_017

Let Uplifting praise always fall like heavy rain…
Speak love into life, life into love, & never pain.

0309Tree2_019

Kindred Hearts, Filled with hope & promise…
Sharing a journey brings such sweet calmness.

 0309Tree2_022

0309Tree2_023

To care, and be cared for, makes you feel richer than a King.
Basking in its warmth like the sun in the purest of spring.

We have landed safely and analyze this destination in full detail for you.

This simulator is set in a crater with multi levels that reach from the surface to deep underground.

 0222space_008

The Moon Base is a fully functioning center, equipped research rooms, a medical bay, a green house, and docking platforms.

 0220space1_010 0222space_003

These multi levels are accessed by lifts and corridors sealed with pressure doors.

 moon 9 0220space1_001 moon 7

There is a feeling of solitude and isolation here., Stark, depicted like the real deal.

 0222space_007

We noticed traffic in & out of the sim is extremely low to nil and agree it would make an ideal spot for machinima,
photography or RP.

Revan and I grabbed the 2 freebies offered which are pretty cool in themselves

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fort%20Nowhere/128/129/1103

We looked through the vendors & bought the Dinosaurs we fancied, and then proceeded to the ground level for a look around.

 0203Dino_008 0203Dino_005

This sim has a simple layout, similar to what it may have looked when Dinosaurs roamed.

0203Dino_002

Sound effects, Smoking Volcanos, crunchy underbrush in the forest adds the the immersive RP.

 dino 4 dino 6

We had a ball as we battled with LOUD trumpeting growls and snarls as we charged.

 dino 5 0203OutnAbout1_006

Kicked up dust stomping and running. Splashing in the water or munching on green or flesh.

 dino 3 0203OutnAbout1_010

Wanders the busy creator is very friendly, accomodating to visitors and, loves to hear feedback.
We hope you get to see this place for yourself, grab the freebies and have a great time role playing!

Welcome Winter Warriors!,

Fancy something different from sleigh rides and building snow men?

1217Surf2_004 surf walking on ice

Well here’s a new spin on winter activities that may just be “cool” enough for you!

1217Surf2_009 surf Us paddling surf chi paddle surf rev paddle

How about surfing in the cold?!, a Real Life craze for extreme surfers.

1217Surf2_012 18.12_055 surf rev 1217Surf2_019

These thrill seekers will travel to icy shores in search of the perfect wave, and now it has come to SL found on the beautiful Coral Reef Island.

1217Surf_011 surf ice flow 1217Surf_009

This stark Arctic scene is surrounded by mountains, broken ice flows, and huge crashing waves for you to surf.

surf mountains 1217Surf_001 surf big wave

We both had the feeling that if we were to shout an echo would bounce all around the mountains lol

1217Surf2_006 surf arch  of ice surf penguins

Although there is an atmosphere of dead quiet and isolation here, the sim still retains a feeling of coziness.

surf deer 1217Surf2_008 surf butterfly cage 1217Surf_008

So, If you don’t feel like braving icy waters you will find a few quiet spots to sit, relax, and watch the waves roll by.

SL Destinations: 3 Realms of ART

Welcome forward everyone!,

Revan and I are always exploring dozens of sims per day.
We’ve come across so many beautiful & fascinating destinations in Second Life.
Some places are very small, and not much to them to do a full post on,
but still made a big impression on us that we saved landmarks to revisit at another time.

You can imagine the substantial collection we have, we like just about everything lol
With so many LMs in possession, We thought to condense some choice favorites in categories.

Our picks in the “3 Realms” series will be of the Arts in this post.
Art forms in SL are interestingly diverse, With unique perspectives and creativity.
Please take time to support the Art community, refer and patron them frequently.

PORT BEAT CUBES
Look on as we cover the historic, the fun and the interactive.

************************************************
The Terracotta Soldiers (TP)

 TERRA ARMY 1

This SL replica of ancient funerary art is AMAZING.

 TERRA ARMY 3

Here are the RL facts for this: In 1974 these figures were discovered by local farmers in the Lintong District, Xi’an, Shaanxi province.
The figures include warriors, chariots and horses, & varied in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals.

 TERRA ARMY 2

These terracotta statues represented the armies of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang.
When he passed, They were buried with him to protect the emperor in his afterlife.

 TERRA ARMY 4

************************************************
The Port (TP)

 PORT circles

Loved Loved Loved this place!
This sim is a mashup of eclectic art galleries & media.

 1201Sunday2_006

The Port is a sandbox of sorts for those into machinima, Offering LOTs of resources, & helpful tips.

 PORT trees 1201Sunday2_004

It also has exploratory tunnels, caves & interactive art to play with.

 1201Sunday1_009 1201Sunday2_002

Enter the building called the “Pencil factory” to see innovative & successful past projects that were launched in SL.
We haunted this place for a couple of hours LOL, & had a BALL here!

1201Sunday1_001 PORT Cookies Sound
***********************************************
Echoes in the Garden (TP)

 FISH TOO words

This is one of several interactive installs in SL, by Artist Rose Borchovski.
Echoes is a continuation of the story on a character named Beth and her Grandchild Lot.
This sad and haunting tale comes about because of war.

 FISH TOO heads 1 1201Sunday_013

Bound by rules restricting them of what they can and cannot do,
Beth and Lot were forced to flee their home because a war had started.
They were separated in all the calamity, and Beth never found her grandchild again.

 FISH TOO heads pigs 1201Sunday_016

The Artist injects so much emotion into her creations.
You can feel the fear, the loss and pain of an upcoming war and separation.

FISH TOO phone

Other installations by This artist can be found here:

SL Destinations: The Water Lantern Festival

Well Hello There,

After a few weeks of intense exploring, We finally slowed down enough to do a post today. YAY!
