* 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

\/ Taxi \/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Snatch%20City/37/34/29

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)

Aviary Photo_130904934414204935

If you would like to learn a little bit more you can also visit their Facebook page

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 \/

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.

Happy Halloween Everyone !!!!

Aviary Photo_130593054886165464

I hope everyone has had an awesome Halloween. Pretty much to me all of October is Halloween, so…. I’ve been out enjoying this amazing time. I love Christmas & Halloween sooooooo much, here is my lovely post for Halloween. And, for anyone who knows me probably already expected this. But, I bring to you…..

The Pulse Games!!!!!!

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pulse/216/124/30

Oct. 17 – Nov. 17

Sorry I havent been around to post up all of my favorite places in SL for Halloween. But, I really wanted to do this one. I have been visiting The Pulse Games for a few years now and have loved every single one. This is the 8th Annual & also a mix all of my favorite things into one : haunted house, SL hunts, storyline, & amazing  all together.

Being that this is a haunted house/hunt I will not be posting every little bit. As much as I would love to post up every picture to lead you through. That would just take away from all of the fun. But, I would like to share some snap shots of the inside to give a bit of an insiders view to what you are mising if you havent checked out any of these in the past. Keep in mind they change everything every year, so its something I look forward to knowing it will never be the same.

This year is – Don’t Panic

When you get to the area you will see two trucks outside, and will be sent a folder with the items you will need to participate. Make sure to wear these.

Aviary Photo_130593074110005822

After you have everything on head up the stairs and walk forward you will see a statue to the left there will be a small table near the stairs. There is a rat on top of the table, throughout the entire area you will find these rats hidden. Make sure to click on each of them they have the gifts hidden in them. And you never know where you may find them, so check everywhere.

Aviary Photo_130593103314602501

Dont Panic! / Hidden gift /rat

Dont Panic! / Hidden gift /rat

And then head up the stairs to being your spooky paranormal adventure. Not to give to much of the story away, but you are a paranomal investigator trying to figure out what happened in the most Haunted Home in the US trying to find out what went on inside this freaky abode. Make sure you pay attention to local chat and items you may see laying around. You will need to grab certain things as you proceed through out the area.

Aviary Photo_130593108698071939

This is the first room you come too after you step through the door above the stairs. From here you start checking the different rooms to see what you may encounter. Also, make sure to have your sound turned on or wear headphones. Sounds/lights/shadows are very important.

Aviary Photo_130593104162185114

You’ll find items like a key

Aviary Photo_130593097540959478

sheets of paper

Aviary Photo_130593098672008413

along with other items, and some secret passage ways. That will help lead you through this haunted home.

Aviary Photo_130593101207424589

Some areas may seem to be filled with nothing but dancing ghost’s although, that may be a distraction to what you really should find.

Aviary Photo_130593096563421442

Spooky symbols and dead bodies filled in this area. This is not for the faint of heart.

Aviary Photo_130593107243308274

And make sure to pay attention to everything you see, hear, and read . There are clues you just need to be open to them.

Aviary Photo_130593099816940257

Leading you to areas you may not fully understand.

Aviary Photo_130593043590543035

And to people you may not want to come face to face with.

But, all in all you will have an amazingly spooky time at Don’t Panic from The Pulse Games. The story line and scenes they created for this year are so much fun, and also freaky. I was really excited about this, and they also put in my favorite things which are hidden doorways. I honestly wish I could find more hidden doorways in SL. I would love that.

I hope you enjoyed the tiny little parts I threw in here, I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone. Because this really was a lot of fun. So, have fun explore get lost in this paranormal experience. And, don’t forget Don’t Panic!!!

* Twosome for Tata’s fallowup after-event *

I had created a post before hand to let everyone know about this event. And after being there, and how amazing it was. I would love to show everyone a few bits of highlights from the night. To start things off, here is some information which helped this event come about.

ABOUT MAKING STRIDES

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer or MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight. Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and race money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.

HISTORY OF MAKING STRIDES

In 1984, Massachusetts cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath wanted to find a way to celebrate fellow cancer survivors by raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Working with a committee of fellow survivors and other volunteers, “Margie” created a “move-along-a-thon” called Making Strides Against Cancer to bring people together in an event to move the fight against cancer forward. The first event, held in Boston, drew 200 participants and instantly became an annual city tradition.

In 1993, the event officially became known as the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, attracting 4,000 walkers at events in Boston and in Manchester, New Hampshire. Since then, Margie’s vision has inspired 8 million walkers to participate in Making Strides events in more than 270 communities across the country, raising more than $460 million to fight breast cancer. Margie remained a dedicated Making Strides volunteer until she lost her battle with cancer in 2001.

The progress we’re making because of Making Strides supporters like Margie is nothing short of remarkable. But it’s no time to rest. That’s why we need your help. More walkers mean the next big breast cancer research breakthrough. More walkers mean free lodging and rides to treatment for breast cancer patients who need it. More walkers fundraising mean more survivors who will celebrate more birthdays.
