Second Life Destinations - Le Village de Roqueblanche


Second Life Destinations

Take a stroll through Roqueblanche in Second Life, a quaint virtual village and paradise for lovers of French culture and history.

Professional landscaper and interior designer, Albane Claray, shares her story and inspiration for Roqueblanche:

“My name is Albane and I am a girl from the south of France. I was born 26 years ago and grew up in a small village, raised by my grandmother. A few years ago, when I discovered Second Life, I was immediately amazed by the talent of the creators who, day after day, bring this not-so-virtual universe to life.
 
I watched, I learned, and I, too, began to draw pixel landscapes. It has become more than a hobby, it has become a passion.

Each new empty lot is a blank canvas for me and I have so much fun painting and creating.

I am happy to share this passion with all those who give me the opportunity to create for them, and who trust me to give life to their dreams, their desires.

I will always be an apprentice, a student as this universe offers possibilities to our creativity. We have no limits, no boundaries.

My story and my origins helped me build Roqueblanche, this little piece of my country. I find there the colors and smells of my childhood, the paths traveled so many times, the light of this end of the summer day, when the stones scorched by the sun are covered with shadows, when the old people of the village go out and sit in the square, in the shade of the old trees.

I wanted to share these memories, to offer people around the world a trip to Provence, the land of sun and perfumes. Roqueblanche is my cradle, my heart, and my sharing with the inhabitants of Second Life.”

Explore Roqueblanche today, and should you feel inclined, make it your next home.

Games Made in Second Life - The Crone


Second Life Destinations

This Halloween, explore The Crone in Second Life, a puzzle-solving game with multiple jump scares to get you into the spooky spirit!

“I have done it again,” says Second Life veteran and self-described polymath of creation, Loki Eliot, with utmost confidence. 

And that self-confidence is warranted indeed: just in time for Halloween weekend, Loki has opened “The Crone”, an utterly scary and truly immersive puzzle game, on his home island of Escapades.

For a nominal fee of L$100, the player becomes an investigative reporter, searching an abandoned cabin for clues to find missing townspeople … and the horror begins to seep in quickly: a dark and vast labyrinth of underground mines has to be explored, with only a torch as aid … or weapon against a ghastly occupant perhaps? 

Beware of the crone wandering the cave system, guarding what can only be described as the most horrible secret Second Life Residents might be able to imagine … but if you or your fellow explorers should find it: do not spill the beans before the big day of October 31st … or the crone might be none too pleased!

Will Loki Eliot stop working his imaginative magic in Second Life anytime soon? A legitimate question, as he is often seen wandering other worlds, not unlike the protagonist of his current game. Fear not, he says, because SL is very special to him indeed: “People are still finding new ways to do things because there are so many options in SL and I've been here for over 15 years and I still don't know all the options. You can still do really cool stuff!”

Teleport over this weekend and try your luck against the crone.

Avatars Made in Second Life - BeSpoke Caravan


Second Life Destinations

We continue our Made in Second Life series with a focus on BeSpoke Caravan, a collective of artists and designers creating some of the finest fantasy mesh heads and avatars in Second Life.

“Second Life is a huge untapped reservoir of untapped creative power”, says Mud, head of the artist collective Bespoke Caravan. 

Together with Harry and Xain (who hail from Pakistan) Mud and Genamalfi create fantasy mesh heads out of their Southern California home. They distribute their wares worldwide, by providing ways for deep self-expression for thousands of Residents in our virtual world.

The power of immersing via digital embodiment in Second Life should be obvious, says Mud: “ When you identify as something that's not even your natural body, the physical body can have a rest behind the computer screen while you engage with other folks in a transcendental way. There is magic in that!” 

Bespoke Caravan is a perfect example of the unique possibilities of Second Life, especially when it comes to forming small business entities without geographic or other limitations. Genamalfi, a former jewelry designer with many Hollywood celebrities being her customers, learned 3D modeling from Mud at an age when most people retire. 

The strenuous work with chemicals and sharp objects, required in her former profession, has now been replaced with a handful of software applications and access to a universe of imagination - and many adoring fans of her work - always within reach, inside the computer.

The three young men by her side agree that becoming one with the conception of oneself, within the context of playfulness in the metaverse, is a wonderful way to express creativity and stay feeling connected in a complex world that is often dominated by anxiety and isolation.

Genamalfi loves her crew and she loves creating tools for self-expression. She distills the importance of playing with avatars in Second Life in one sentence: “At heart, we're all children sometimes, and sometimes we're all ancient beings.”

Tap into your creative side and teleport over to BeSpoke to try a fantasy avatar.

Vampires Made in Second Life - Transylvania


Second Life Destinations

Home to the Transylvania family for 18 years, the Transylvania destination is a safe haven for those with an interest in a vampiric lifestyle in Second Life. 

Established in 2004, Transylvania is not solely focused on role-playing, and is instead a darkly gothic environment built for mood and atmosphere with a strict no-combat policy. Walking the streets of Transylvania you’re sure to find the Vampires and Lycans who call it home, but be prepared for other unusual visitors too.

There are four Transylvania Royals who own and run the day-to-day operations of Transylvania. Three of those royals are Transylvania Vampires: Willow Raven Paine (who is also the mother of Transylvania,) Noirran Marx, and Sabbian Paine. The 4th Royal is Joytou Timeless who is a Transylvania Lycan and their pack leader.  

Sabbian shares more of the inner workings and upcoming events:

“Transylvania has always been about the family as a whole working together as equals or as the family refers to as "One Blood."

To join the Transylvania family as either a Vampire or a Lycan, there is an application process and you need family sponsorship. You can find a notecard dispenser for either Vampire or Lycan in the grand hallway in the castle as you first walk in. After careful consideration, the final decision is made by the Royals.

The Transylvania community is not just made up of family members but its visitors and residents as well. We host DJ parties in the evening, and monthly themed events especially around the birthday in August and Halloween where the Transylvania family will host 5 days of events starting on October 28th with a Zombie Sock Hop, Scary Monsters, and Super Freaks, Evil Clown event, Halloween Party and a Dia De Los Muertos celebration.”

If you have a penchant for the dark, attend some of the upcoming Halloween events at Transylvania and consider sending in your application to join the family.


Family members featured in the video:
Vampyres: Kloe Kidd, Hollow, Meka Indigo, Ados Oldrich, Tomaso Franizzi, Wyndiva Magic, and Zarabella Ming Pockets
Lycans: Sheena Oldrich, Raeyn Sirnah, Petra Paderborn, Chopper Gurbux

Second Life Destinations - The 13th Cloud Hotel


Second Life Destinations

This Halloween, explore the creepy 13th Cloud Hotel, a destitute and broken-down asylum in Second Life.

The mysterious 13th Cloud Hotel is a collaboration between friends Lil Brat and Roxksie on the RoxkStudios region

Lil shares her inspiration for this haunted exhibit, “I wanted to try a floating asylum idea I had a few years ago, and we went for it. I love reading about all the spooky aspects of world history, in this case, asylums. 

Roxksie found the project to be a perfect addition to her art region, “Lil approached me knowing that I make art installations in Second Life while owning and managing an art region so I offered her some space. Once the first part had been installed, I mentioned the idea of creating a maze with the hope of making something interactive to explore. This installation is a vehicle for telling the story of times gone past. The older medieval practices that doctors would perform on patients thinking that it could or would cure them of illnesses. Instead of understanding the science of what causes illnesses, they would use things like electric shock to “cure” the ailment or leeches.”

When asked what Second Life means to them, Roxksie shared that since joining SL at age 18 back in 2006 “... the world has become an addition to my real life, where I can do the things that I cannot afford to do offline such as take a weekend to sit on a tropical beach (I live in the UK so there isn’t a lot of tropical beaches to go to). In recent years I have learned to use Second Life as a medium for expressionism which is an addition to my offline real-world artwork. I enjoy creating fantastical immersive art displays and creations that others can interact with and explore.” You can see more of Roxksie’s interactive art on the Roxkstudios region.

Lil Brat also shares her feelings towards this virtual world, “Second Life means a lot to me. It’s a place where you can play with and show your creativity, hang out with friends and explore. There is so much to do and see and it really is an amazing place. Some of my best friends I met in Second Life.” Lil Brat’s other work can be seen at her Dollhouse Forest.

After completing work on the 13th Cloud Hotel, Lil and Roxksie invited friends Squizzle, Echo, and Monki to assist in the 2nd installment of the asylum, called The 700's Labyrinth. This is the horror maze where inmates from the asylum were released into a final realm. Explore if you dare! 

Halloween is the perfect season to do all of the above in our virtual universe: create, express yourself, hang with friends, supplement RL with tropical surroundings and, if you dare, creep people out by visiting an old spooky asylum, in the clouds!


Additional help for 13th Cloud Hotel was provided by Ramisaa Gothly (Scripting Assistance with the Asylum), Solace Tigerpaw (maker of the famous TeaCup Carousel), and Finn Zeddmore (Narrative ideas)

Second Life Destinations - What's Lost Spirits


Second Life Destinations

Discover a hauntingly beautiful region of lost dreams and surreal landscapes at What’s Lost Spirits in Second Life.

Long time Second Life resident, Stabitha aka Sam, has created a nightmarish place, a place of surreal art to explore, and a space where one can maybe confront one’s own anxieties?

Sam explains: 

“What's Lost Spirits is a mix of RL experiences, such as the entry point and the mansion, and the recurring nightmares that followed those experiences. I have and have had, very lucid and vivid dreams all my life. I visit the same variety of places over and over again in those dreams, the feel of the places never changes but the buildings do over time, as well as the people. It is because of them that I decided to build What's Lost Spirits. 

I have a whole world in my head and Second Life gives me the perfect canvas to get that out. Eventually I will have stories that will go with the areas and characters and I plan on hopefully making them into a graphic novel of some sort. That will take years though. So for right now it's an ongoing work in progress.”

Sam has indeed already written two short stories, although she is not sure they are quite finished yet: “The first one is called ’Sam's Story’. The main character has the same name as me. Coincidence? Maybe. It is about how the nightmares started, it is a real life experience. The second is called ‘Terror’. It is a short story that has to do with one of the nightmare characters.”

If you like Sam’s style of visualizing her dark thoughts in the virtual world, we recommend a visit to her store which features some hand-picked (and hand-crafted) imaginative items, perfect for the season. Happy Halloween!

Second Life Destinations - Dwarka


Second Life Destinations

Immerse yourself in the magic and beauty of the underwater worlds at Dwarka, a Medieval Fantasy Aquatic Role-play destination.

Dwarka is an elaborate universe that allows a fully immersive role-play experience underwater. Races that live on land and in the water coexist here, form alliances, do battle, and imagine intricate scenarios within the existing but constantly changing lore of Dwarka. Oh and yes: folks at Dwarka do go shopping, hang out in taverns and educate themselves at the Merbrary, where books are available under as well as above water.

Kei Kawanishi, who runs the place together with colleagues Drakos and Alice Roseroot, explains: 

“Dwarka was created with about 75-80% of it underwater, and the rest on land. There are 3 underwater districts - The elven city, the Mer city and royal court, and the depths. To my knowledge, there has never been an RP sim that offers so many aquatic amenities in SL - EVER. lol ..”

Are you a “landlubber” like an elf, a tiefling, a gnome, or a dragon or do you prefer to embody as a siren, mermaid, aquatic kobold or possibly as kakresha (a hybrid being, composed of the upper body of a human and the lower body of a centipede.) Dwarka has a fully integrated D&D style role-play functionality via a HUD.

As their manifesto states: “Whether you're already an aquatic fanatic and want to take your RP skills to a new level or you're an already experienced RPing nerd who is looking for something new. The destination will bring something for everyone.”

After extensive visits to Dwarka, our team has to agree. 

Kei Kawanishi adds a personal note about the significance of creating Dwarka in SL: “Second Life means so much to me: freedom, creativity, business, projects, family, and friends. SL is NOT a game. It's a metaverse (no, not the Facebook kind). We've been calling SL a metaverse for almost 2 decades because that's what it is!”

And if you are stopping by, don’t miss the many Mom and Pop shops scattered around the sea and land. Hot tip? The “Sea Tangles Spa” where the offer is straight-forward as it is enticing: “Our committed and competent team is here to help keep your hair, nails, claws, scales, skin, and body healthy and beautiful.”

Now don’t delay and submit an application via their Discord or inworld and start roleplaying. Rumor has it that each approved new member gets a spa ticket on the house!

Second Life Destinations - Big Sky Over Florence


Second Life Destinations

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of Big Sky Over Florence and you may discover pathways to your inner self.

Designed by Ines Shelby and Elvira Kytori, Big Sky Over Florence is peaceful, imaginative, and serene in its simplicity.

Owner of the destination, Gnaaah Xeltentat, tells us what his inspiration for Big Sky is:

“I love traveling and more so being near water. I love that feeling you get when your entire view is filled with sky and water. Just being in awe of the magnitude of something so simple as a vast expanse of sky and the movement of the sea. I wanted that feel at Big Sky and I hoped that would be the primary sense you felt when you teleported in. I wanted to keep it “simple” with places to sit and enjoy the views, so people would feel they are “beside the ocean” and remember the times spent by it. 

I’m Canadian RL so I think the destination is a combination of the Muskoka Lakes in Ontario and the east coast of New Brunswick/Nova Scotia. Less defined by a specific place and more so by the feel those places evoke.”

He enjoys hearing about what visitors think of Big Sky and loves seeing the images that are submitted to the Big Sky Flickr group.
 
Gnaaah also shares how Second Life is the perfect escape for him and why he’s still here 14 years later:

“One of my favorite things about Second Life is the sharing of ideas and the imagination that goes into building someplace special. I look at other creators/builders and I am constantly amazed at the creativity involved in all the work they do. In some regards, it’s almost magical. 
 
I logged onto SL 14 years ago for the first time (after seeing a news item about it on television). I thought I’d only be in the game for a day or so and so I picked the goofiest name I could think of at that particular moment. Little did I suspect that over a decade later “Gnaaah” would still be flying into walls and getting stuck in trees.
 
And 14 years later, SL still provides a welcome respite from a sometimes crazy and definitely busy RL. Especially these past two years. After being in “lockdown” the ability to delve into a “second life” and escape the restraints of being stuck at home with limited social connections has been a godsend. 

Friends in game made the “real” world a much less scary place. I’m thankful for being able to log on and escape for a little bit.“

The first day of Autumn is on September 22nd, so take some time to enjoy the last days of summer at white sandy beaches in Big Sky Over Florence.

Greetings Second Lifers!

Today is a really big day for all of us together and we are excited to share that the Second Life portion of CasperTech is being acquired by Linden Research, Inc.

CasperTech has provided various business related services within Second Life for 13 years. Over that time, CaperTech has proudly provided continuous service for tens of thousands of Second Life businesses, and it has remained steadfast in its commitment to the merchants who have depended on those services.

This acquisition will ensure that all of the existing CasperTech services in Second Life will continue to operate without interruption into the foreseeable future, but it also opens up brand new opportunities to vastly improve the experience for our users as our next step in the CasperTech and Second Life journey.  

You can expect to see the same great services that you know and love continue on, with all of the same functionality you enjoy today, but with closer integration into the Second Life ecosystem – and as such, an even more reliable and convenient experience.

We wouldn’t have gone forward with this move if we weren’t absolutely confident that it will be a positive change for all Residents and CasperTech customers.

We hope that you are as excited about this change as we are, and we thank you for your continued support as we all step boldly into the future together!

We have started a forum discussion here for anyone interested in participating with questions.

You can also watch Casper and I on a special pre-recorded Lab Gab today at 10:30am SLT!

 

The Second Life Team
and Casper Warden, CasperTech LTD
