Happy Halloween Everyone ~

Welcome to The Pulse Games & Snatch City’s

Carver’s End

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)

* 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.

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

* 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. \/ \/

* Mini Series on Second Life’s LEA Sim’s *

This is going to be the start of my mini travels to different areas on Second Life’s LEA Sim’s.

LEA = The Linden Endowment for the Arts

These are basically giant Sandboxes for Second Life’s Artists. They can rez, build, create, and build whatever fantasy’s or ideas they have swarming around their minds. This is a giant collaboration between the Lindens and the art community in Second Life.

LEA-Art-sandbox-alex-.3-odd-mirror_001

This is pretty awesome. Some of the areas I’ve seen already are very wild and abstract. I love this, being able to see everyone’s different thoughts and what they create from them.

LEA14-alex3_001 LEA14-alex6_001

My good friend Alex (alex.putzo) actually introduced me to LEA, he knows I love finding out about places I’ve never been. And I’m so glad he brought me here thanks Alex. Also, took a few snap shots from the spots we stopped by, so everyone can see a little bit or what LEA is all about.

LEA14-alex2_001 LEA14-alex_001

Also, there are a few different pages to visit if you want to know more about LEA.

* Early Valentines ~ Welcome to FRANCE PORTNAWAK – Aquarelle *

Just in time for Valentines Day ~

Along with being my 1st year anniversary post~ Hurray ~!!

It has been one year since I started up TourSL searching the grid for destinations to visit. So, I wanted to find something different. And, I stumbled across one of the most beautiful and dreamy locations that I’ve seen.

Aviary Photo_130681141756672498

Welcome to France Portnawak – Aquarelle

Taxi \/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dreamworld%20Volcano/178/188/22

Aviary Photo_130681143980676391

This beautiful location makes you feel like you stepped into a watercolor painting. There are transparent areas in the trees and landscape that gives off the feel of real watercolors.

Aviary Photo_130681133287952053

The creators of this beautiful piece of artwork brought to life are Lecia Arado & ChimKami. I had spoken with both of them, wanting to get an insight into Aquarelle. I asked where the idea for this place and the watercolor look came from. They told me that they have known each other for many years & are both very tuned to one another. This idea started out with the feelings of being Zen & peaceful.

Aviary Photo_130681124515615538

From the idea of a tree they spoke and discussed their feelings while collaborating with each other to put their feelings into the SIM. Creating the outline of the area, of lightness & serenity everything started to evolve from there.

Aviary Photo_130681129537429527

Into a beautiful misty transparent watercolor world that you see now.

Aviary Photo_130681137559206783

They really wanted the softness of color to show something clean & pure. For them it wasn’t a set out plan. As their imaginations started forming different ideas this beautiful location emerged from them. Showing something that these two are very proud to show & want to share with everyone.

Aviary Photo_130681139261064742

And this is what their moods & imaginations transformed into.

Aviary Photo_130681136328329807Aviary Photo_130681134921476404

There is also a shop at the top. Where some free mesh items for men & women are along with other items that can be bought. All of the profits from the items are used  for the benefit of the SIM.

I hope everyone takes a visit to this lovely place. And being close to Valentines day you could bring that special someone for a perfect date. Their are beautiful spots for photos.

Aviary Photo_130681117252175150

An area where you can get a horse to ride,

Aviary Photo_130681117804576428

And also areas for couples to dance around the painted colors.

There is also a board with the different spots you can TP too.

* Welcome to the Amazon Rainforest *

Welcome to The Amazon Rainforest ~!

Aviary Photo_130661343177189516\/ Taxi \/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Glint/214/24/22

This place is intense. When I landed I was not expecting it to be as crazy and exciting as it turned out to be. When you land here, you will see some signs near you explaining a bit about the land. There is a HUD you wear so you can fully immerse yourself into this area. Make sure to grab that off of the tall sign near the landing.

The first thing I did when I got here was hop on a kayak and started to explore from the rivers. I thought this was a great way to see a bit of everything. From lil’ colorful froggies-

Aviary Photo_130661354638935066

To beautiful birds and native huts

Aviary Photo_130661366086759411

Busted up rope bridges ( pass over these with caution )

Aviary Photo_130661353545496505And I also came near this random opening in a mountain. There was a camera above the entrance, so I  made sure to pass by carefully. Hopefully this wasn’t an entrance for loggers living in the area….

Aviary Photo_130661365130135757

After my tour through the water I decided to hop off the kayak near by and started to check out the area by foot. This is a giant 5 SIM Forest, so there is plenty to view while you are here.

Aviary Photo_130661343177189516

As I was wandering around I found some villages, and I was glad to see that they were all very friendly to me being a new comer. I just let them know I was exploring, they wished me well along with warning me to be careful about the dangers in the forest. I said thank you and headed deeper into the forest.

Aviary Photo_130661338666767918Aviary Photo_130661364347460256I found myself passing by beautiful ruins and waterfalls.

Aviary Photo_130661339614969418Near this waterfall I found a Giant Ruin with two Snake people statues outside the entrance. Definitely frightening, but I headed towards them from my curiosity. This was a very spooky looking area.

Aviary Photo_130661337901873038Not far from here I found a giant Mayan Temple, that even had a secret passageway ( I will leave the entrance for you to find 😀 ).

Aviary Photo_130661362033288031 Then I started walking through the lush forest my eyes wide with everything I’ve already seen, feeling way to comfortable with my surroundings.

Aviary Photo_130661361016761597I ended up getting chased by a crocodile!!!

Aviary Photo_130661336995944183

And as I ran away out of terror, I stepped onto of a snake. Which pissed him off and I was bit. Things were blurry and slightly blank.

Aviary Photo_130661340507789258Now being injured and a bit woozey, I’m glad I still manged to get away. I found a nearby rope ladder and headed for higher ground.

Aviary Photo_130661341188595711The site was amazing from here, being able to see the entire forest.

Aviary Photo_130661351816343085

I spent the last of my adventure sitting above the canopy, taking in the beauty that I saw all around.

Aviary Photo_130661351088268256

So, now you know what awaits you in The Amazon. I say go for it, there is so much beauty to this place. And so much more left to see.

I hope you all take a chance and head into the jungle. You never know what you may find. But, you wont know unless you go.
