* Second Life 2015 Advent Calendars *

This is not a typical post. Where its about one amazing specific location, but I do love Christmas time. Everything is so beautiful, and feels so light and free.

[CIRCA] Living&C&D Designs

So, bringing in the Christmas spirit one of the best parts are the Advent Calendars !!!

They are always so much fun, I know these are a bit behind knowing some stores had already started on the first. But, some are starting for the 12 days of Christmas also.

One of my favorite sites when looking for Second Life items is FabFree. If you have never checked this site out, now is definitely the time.

They also put a complete list together for the different Advent’s going on in SL. FabFree’s Advent list

I stopped by a few different stores and snapped a few photos to show what the different advent Calendars might look like.

KittyCatS! Advent

KittyCatS! Advent has a giant board in their shop as their Calander. Click to get the days free gift & you can also get the previous days you might have missed.

[CIRCA] Living&C&D Designs

[CIRCA] Living&C&D Designs Advent another large board inside the shop, sometimes their might be a couple to grab instead of one on certain days. This advent ranges from (L$1-L$75) along with joining their group which is free right now.

Sour Pickles Advent

Sour Pickles Advent has an actual Christmas tree the advent items are located on. Join the free group and you are able to grab one a day.

Fair Play Advent

Fairplay Advent has their advent set up as numbers scattered through out the store. Find the number for the day to get the advent gift.

 

These are only a couple of ways some of the Advents might be set up. Many on the list are free, some require you to join their free group to participate, and a couple have fee’s to join before you can grab anything off the advent.

There are so many amazing shops joining in with the christmas fun, that everyone will find something they love out of these advent gifts.

* Pulse Games – Carver’s End *

Happy Halloween Everyone ~

Welcome to The Pulse Games & Snatch City’s

Carver’s End

Aviary Photo_130904936102904507

Every year I look forward to Halloween, and mostly because I can’t wait to see what comes out for The Pulse Games. Each year it never fails to be amazing & a total surprise.

This year we get to visit Carver’s End, which is set up like a small city. With homes, business’s,

Carvers_end_haunted-carwash_001

 churches, along with some shops you can purchase items, and other things you might expect to find in a city.

Aviary Photo_130904941775936643

The actual thing you are searching for is left to a mystery. But, you will be going from house to house Trick-or-Treating.

Aviary Photo_130904933355847141

Some houses will give goodies, some you may hear a grumpy man telling you to leave, and others you may end up in the home,

Aviary Photo_130904943613404117

or inside different dimension.

Aviary Photo_130904930822733749

To begin you will land outside of the city, you’ll need to cross through the dark tunnel to enter. But before you head in do not forget to grab these items. Or you wont be able to fully participate.

Aviary Photo_130904928696570404

On the left side you will find a box that has all the items, or the right side you can grab them each from the boxes.

Make sure to wear the Carver’s End Radio HUD (as pictured ) The HUD will give you text and audio messages that will help you as you wander through the city of Carvers End. And, in case you find yourself lost at anytime the HUD has a Help button that will bring up a guide, and a Home button to teleport you back to the beginning.

Aviary Photo_130904929677496140

The next thing you need is also very important to play, this will pop-up on your screen. So, make sure to accept The Pulse Games experience key.  By accepting this you can fully enjoy everything there is to experience without having pop ups asking for your permission with every little thing. This way Carver’s End will be the only one teleporting you through the area. (below is what the pop-up will look like)

Aviary Photo_130904929275560334

Sound & text are also very important here, this way you can hear & read the sounds and clues. You don’t want to end up missing something that may have been important, just to be confused later. Make sure your volume is on.

Aviary Photo_130904940637578508

There are lots of prizes all over the city, besides the ones from ringing the door bells. Make sure you keep an eye out for little rats, they could be anywhere. These rats have prizes inside of them. ( Below I lightened one of the rats in the photo, so you know what they look like)

You can even find some of the prizes listed on the Facebook page.

They also have a help page

* Exiled! Reality series hitting Second Life *

Welcome to Exiled!

Exiled-entrance-sign_001

\/Taxi\/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Southfield/94/36/22/

This is the beginning of a its own new world. A new life based on betrayal, lies, and deceit.  A new beginning a semi-reality show based in Second life.

Exiled-about_001

Now stay with me for a moment.

This new show will be called Exiled! and along with it being semi-scripted.  It seems like the people who will be playing the characters will have some openness to improvise onto the characters they portray.

Exiled-entrance-characters_001

I think this is a pretty awesome idea actually. This is interesting and something different in the realms of what we see day to day in SL.

For some full details on Exiled! and if you are also interested in applying for one of the character roles yourself. You can go here \/

https://exiledthegame.wordpress.com/about/

This area will help explain what Exiled! is all about.

And to apply for a part click here \/

http://www.jotform.us/form/51918102070142

This story line fallows 1918 at the end of WW1. The royal family of Italy had been taken down and moved to London. Along with other Royal families being forced out of their homes, along with them having to sell their jewels.

Exiled-entrance-characters1_001

These royal families lost everything they ever knew, and brought them selves down to mere commoners. And even though everything they went through none of them ever dropped their royal tittles.

There has been a lot of thought put into this backstory, along with the characters themselves. Everything is very detailed which makes a great story line and sounds like it will make for some very interesting episodes to come from this. To catch up on the rest of the backstory \/

https://exiledthegame.wordpress.com/backstory/

There are three families in this in Exiled! A Royal Family in Greenwich, Connecticut

  • FarneseExiled-entrance-Farnese-house_001
  • CrossExiled-entrance-Cross-house_001
  • SavoyExiled-entrance-Saboy-house_001Exiled-entrance-Ancillary-house_001

There is also a page for each character, the spots without a photo are still open to cast. So if you see a character who resonates with you. Why not apply? \/

https://exiledthegame.wordpress.com/cast-of-characters/

After finding this page and reading though everything, I decided to visit the lot they have open to explore the land & home that is open. This place is beautiful there is a grand staircase when you walk in that even sparkles.

Exiled-entrance-doorway_001

The ceiling has a very large beautiful chandelier.

Exiled-entrance-chaneliier_001

Along with lovely dining

Exiled-entrance-Diningroom_001

and living room areas.

Exiled-entrance-livingroom_001

Take sometime to explore and read up on this royal family soon moving into SL.

*Second Life L.E.A.’s Reflect the Light *

After some exploring around Second Life’s L.E.A. Sim, I found the first location to visit.

Welcome to Reflect the Light

me-LEA-18-reflect-the-light_001

http://slurl.com/secondlife/LEA18/164.872314/122.893150/22.279003

This lovely area was created by Kiesta Aljon

me-LEA-18-reflect-the-light1_001

As you enter you fallow a story

and also get pulled into different emotions

everything is very bright and filled with these beautiful colors surrounded by a dark background,

allowing these lights to really stand out.

Each sculpture you come across is named to reflect the different feelings

they can bring.

me-LEA-18-reflect-the-light4_001

This entire beautiful piece of art was inspired by lines from a play

“All I Really Needed to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten” – Robert Fulgrum

But instead of using the “I’s” they were changed them to “we”

So everyone could be put into the story.

“We are not the light,
or the source of the light.
But we can reflect the light,
into the dark hearts
of man.”
me-LEA-18-reflect-the-light2_001
There are also these doors you will find as you walk through these beautiful lights.
me-LEA-18-reflect-the-light3doors_001
Each door takes you to areas filled with beautiful lights & sculptures.
me-LEA-18-reflect-the-light6---_001
I hope everyone heads over to this beautiful piece of emotion & light.
You wont regret it.

See you all soon ~

* Exploring L.E.A. *

me-LEA4-umbrellas3_001

Here is the first of my mini-exploration at the L.E.A. Sim in Second Life. Before I dive in and pick a specific spot I’d like to cover, I just decided to wander around.

Wanting to get a feel for what I might come across.

me-LEA4-umbrellas1_001

The great thing I found is every area you visit is completely different from the next.

me-LEA9-birdcage_001

This is such a fun area to get lost in, you never know what you may find. So many creators have put so much into these amazing builds.

me-LEA9-birdcage1-lightening_001

In the post before this I put up links if anyone is interested to learn more about the Linden L.E.A. Sims in Second Life. I’ll add this here if you want to check it out. \/ \/
