* Pulse Games – Carver’s End *

Happy Halloween Everyone ~

Welcome to The Pulse Games & Snatch City’s

Carver’s End

\/ Taxi \/

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

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.

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

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.

* 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.

* 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.

* Welcome to the Amazon Rainforest *

Aviary Photo_130661368156790874If you are looking for some excitement and possible danger this is where you want to be.

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.

* Burrito Bell SL’s in-world Taco Bell *

So I’ve been doing some searching, to see if there are any fast food chains in SL.

To my surprise I found my favorite one 😀

Taco Bell Woo=-

Well, in Second Life we have Burrito Bell instead.

Welcome to Burrito Bell – \/ Taxi \/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cedar%20Creek/183/51/25

Aviary Photo_130651820067302235

Everything is set up just like the fast food chain. You can grab some tacos, burritos, and other amazing items from the menu. 🙂

Aviary Photo_130652463927818122

The fun thing is here, you can even hop in the back and act like your an employee if you want. I think its pretty cool that this exists in-world. Instead of trying to hunt down a restaurant or something like that. It seems a lot of food places In-world are set towards romance or special events. But, this is a great place to bring family and kids. And you don’t have to be dressed up any certain way to go here.

Aviary Photo_130651821387358555

There is even a drive through. So you can take a car and swing by to grab your food. But, to do this you’ll need to join the group on the SIM to rez your car on the land.

Aviary Photo_130652464373168749

Theres plenty of seating inside too if you want to eat inside.

Aviary Photo_130651821912534502

And here are all the menu items, and the drink options are to the left of this sign.

The reason I started searching for any food chains, was because I was all excited when I saw that Taco Bell has a new app where you can Get a free Doritos’s Loco’s taco when you order off the app. Haha I love those things, so I grabbed it up. Apparently they are going to be doing this until they hand out 1 million tacos.

I hope everyone enjoyed this post as much as I have 🙂

If you’d like to swing by Burrito Bell here in your Taxi 😀

* Parfum de Cristal’s beautiful winter wonderland & Advents *

Being in the Winter/Christmas Spirit, I have been taking full advantage of this time of year. From decorating the home, to visiting Santa, and checking out all of the amazing Advents that are featured this year in Second Life.

From checking out the list of different advent calendars to grab up some great Christmas items from. I ended up finding this amazing winter wonderland, where one of the advents are located.

This place is beautiful

Theres a lot of amazing stores with great gifts at all of those locations.

But, back to Parfum de Cristal’s beautiful winter wonderland –

Aviary Photo_130628576356252909

Right after you land, the first things you’ll see is this beautiful home along an icy river, and also Santa sitting upon a train, scooting around a Christmas tree.

Aviary Photo_130628591851090156

There is also a lovely lighthouse a bit into the distance that you can walk to, climb to the top and see a view of the surrounding area.

Aviary Photo_130628581590982843

The first two spots I ended up finding were buried in the woods a bit. One was the icy Carousel that is so pretty. And also this small little winter park that looks perfect to Christmas photos.

Aviary Photo_130628580346004832

Aviary Photo_130628585271739265

There are lots of beautiful areas for photo op’s here.

Aviary Photo_130628575238445993 Aviary Photo_130628572055929834 Aviary Photo_130628566026991963

Along with the beautiful mountains, you can find this gorgeous house sitting a top a hill. And right in front of the home you’ll find three grazing reindeer.

Aviary Photo_130628590748876736 Aviary Photo_130628593685084524

Besides the reindeer you can find many other animals around this SIM. Even a Polar bear and Penguins floating on a mini ice burg.

Aviary Photo_130628589793890139

You can also go sledding and do some ice skating 😀

Aviary Photo_130628573722071676 Aviary Photo_130628579078760988

And before you decide to leave, don’t miss the chance to watch the Northern Lights bounce across the nights sky.

Aviary Photo_130628588807176554

” It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas “

I love this time of year, its so full of love.

I hope everyone takes a trip to this lovely snowy area. I’ll post up another taxi below. Also, don’t miss out on the great gifts from the advent calendars.

* Happy Halloween !!!! Don’t Panic! ( The Pulse Games ) *

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!!!!!!

Taxi \/

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!!!
