Thought about making this thread sometimes ago but just got to do it now So yesterday I was flying around a Jeogeot route with my helicopter, and found someone standing on the road down below, to my surprise they were actually 1 of my group's members! I found out from their tag (they probably found out about my group because I used to have 1 of the group's places on a route in Jeogeot). So then I landed and gave them the group's props they said they were travelling on a Yava pod, I asked them if they want to come with me on my heli and they did so we were exploring the roads for a bit until I had to go to eat. Tell your mainland exploration stories!
This isn't about houses, because I don't want one. It's about exploring the new area and what I've found so far. I had issues finding landmarks as only one is in search, so I thought this might help others who don't have time to walk around the whole thing. Other people also might have found some things I haven't, so let me know! The first location is the one in search, which is the fairgrounds. This'll be great for vehicles, as there's an open rez area for the dock and for the airstrip. There are other open rez docks elsewhere, but this is the only one I found for air vehicles. All round, this area is good for flying with the sandbox and security rules. I only got warned once when I was flying a bit lower with my flying boat. The dock/pier area also has a water taxi that goes to one of the lighthouses and the Bellisseria mainland. I didn't find any other similar taxis around the area, so if I missed one, I'd be interested in knowing where they are. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bellisseria%20Fairgrounds/128/128/23 There are a bunch of lighthouses. The most useful is Kuga Lighthouse. It's at the start of a corridor of water sims that end at the old mainland/Pyri Funfair. I don't believe there's a ferry here, though it's set up as though there could be later. The corridor water is deep enough for a small submarine or mershroomie. There currently aren't any points of interest on the route that I could see. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kuga/39/82/21 The Squishy Pickle was tricky to find, as people kept talking about it, but not saying where to find it. I got my free pickle on a stick. No one was hanging out when I was there, but I can see why it's a useful location for parties. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brodovima/116/88/28 I didn't see any signs of the train yet, but there's still a lot of open space in the middle.
A few friends and I will be creating a group for both organised and spontaneous Roleplay in the Blake Sea regions. Given the vast amount of space and potential for discoveries, its the perfect place to create new experiences. We'll be going for a near-future setting where plenty has gone wrong. The specifics are still up for discussion! Most common races and character concepts should be acceptable. We're likely to start out as fortune hunters in dire straights and see where that takes us. As to whether we'll be using a dice system with rules, or go purely freeform is still being discussed as well. If this intrigues you, or you're an orphaned RP'er without a place to call home, send me an IM in-world and we'll talk more.
