October continues to be a busy time in Second Life as several new seasonal events and Halloween-themed spots continue to pop up across the grid. One of the biggest highlights this month is BURN2, which is an inworld extension of the popular Burning Man festival and community. The theme for this round is “Radical Ritual.” Another highlight is the unusual art experience “Floating” by acclaimed artists Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost. This unexpected collaboration has an interesting backstory that you can read about on Bryn Oh’s blog. October wouldn’t be complete without dozens of new haunted attractions -- and there is no shortage of new spooky spots debuting in the Destination Guide this month. The Haunted category now hosts over 100 unique spots, including MadPea’s Halloween Ghost Hunt and Pulse Games’ Birthright. Before you explore, don’t forget to pick up your free trick-or-treat bag at Portal Park, too! Here are some new spots we recommend: Free Treat Bag Free Treat Bag! Halloween is never complete without a treat bag. Get yours free at Portal Park and Social Island.

Whole-hearted, creative play induces self-surrender to experience that is beyond the scope of reasoned thought. Event held Oct. 21-29.

But this was no million dollar venture. These were tear-downs that no-one had any incentive to demolish. This ghost town was more than "ghost" in name. When the sun-rays failed and moonlight was the only illumination for miles around, the phantoms and spectres rose from the ground or else stepped from the creaking walls.
