"Ancient European empires have always been a personal favorite of mine, and I often find myself in Persian, Roman and Greek-themed role-play regions. I am continually amazed at how much detail and effort builders put into their role-play regions, and if you are history buff, Second Life® may be the right place for you. The public is welcome to visit and experience what is like to live as a Roman soldier, a Greek goddess or the merchant selling produce in the town’s market." Read more on the blog.

"What's up SL family! it's been a long time coming but we are finally back with Season 2 LWY. As you all already know, this is a passion project for me. I worked hours and days on end trying to make this visual come to life for you all. My ultimate goal is to keep showing just how realistic roleplay can be in second life if you just use your imagination." Click over to YouTube for more.

"This entire @secondlife virtual pregnancy thing has been wayyy more than I ever expected and being able to use the @avlovemomma body really helped me add that realism into the experience.

"I grew up around scientists. My father was an engineer who designed and implemented complex instrumentation for scientific research at a Carnegie R1 university. He was also an amateur astronomer. As an only child, I spent much of my time with scientists, allowed to “follow around” on field work and freezing in domes open to the cold night sky. My becoming some sort of scientist was a forgone conclusion if not somehow pre-ordained." Read more on the blog.
"The door slides open. Ivo’s arm draped around her neck, barely able to stand, bleeding out of the fresh wound. Arianna holding onto Ivo’s hand, dragging her wounded lover through the door." Read more on the blog.
"Cyberpunk fiction gained momentum in the early 1980s—William Gibson's influential debut novel Neuromancer, Bruce Sterling, Rudy Rucker, K.W. Jeter and Katsuhiro Otomo's manga series Akira are some of the authors and novels most associated with the movement, who solidified cyberpunk as a subgenre. In addition, early films such as Blade Runner and The Matrix Trilogy further popularized this genre, reflecting a new perspective of a technology-induced realm of bizarre, hard-edged and high-tech subculture of hackers and rebels; thus the origin of the movement’s name – high tech (cyber) with counter-culture (punk)."

"What's up SL family! Well, we're three weeks (3 rl months) into my pregnancy and so much has already started to happen my body. I still can't believe this is MY body housing a baby! I'm still using the beta avlovemomma pregnancy body throughout this pregnancy journey and I can say that this body definitely has added to the experience. This video is going to be a little crazy after the 45 minute mark because I kept losing space to record- sorry guys! But anyways, enjoy this video of roleplay with light commentary as we go for my first maternity doctor's visit. I'm excited!" Click over to watch the video on YouTube.
"Night City, 2077, in a time where corporate rule, power struggles and impotent government have been the norm for over forty years. The streets are filled with crime, drug lords, black market body modifications, cyberware and addictions to braindances. A town that Detective Ivo has been attempting to protect with a high degree of success. He was so successful at his craft that the corporate giant Arasaka had the government expel him from the city after a major event which found him running from his own fellow officers in the Night City subway."

"The Holiday Season is not over yet – we are soon to cheer to a New Year and hopefully to a better year than what 2020 had to offer us. Many of us agree this year has not been the most joyful, but we need to remember and count our blessings. Keep your hopes up – I strongly believe in a few months our lives may go back to normal; until then, let's stay virtual." Read more on the blog.
"One of my all time favorite things to do in Second Life has always been role play. The reason I decided to play Second Life were because of some of these role play communities. I remember early in my Second Life, I used to hop around between this role play community called Rocky Valley and another called Dead End. I met the majority of my current friends at Rocky Valley, this cool boarding school style city that really kicked started my love for immersive role play." Read more on the blog.
"There's a new weaponry in town and I couldn't be more excited to show off the first and new release from Edo World, the "Naginata" Pole Weapon. Edo World comes to us as a sister store to Medieval World, one of fantasy creators who is frequently featured in this blog - if you enjoy all things Japanese, Yi Ti (Game of Thrones) or Pani (Gor), visit the store, grab a landmark and go back often to check on new releases."
