  1. Creator Jenaia Morane describes Braided Lives as “a multimedia, multiplatform initiative designed to bring people from around the planet together to create, collaborate, and build community.” It currently features a music installation called Songs for Ukraine. Jenaia has been a Resident for over 14 years, telling us, “the most important lesson I’ve learned is that people are people wherever and however they choose to appear, and virtual reality has a lot to teach us about what it means to be human.” As a response to the overwhelming emotions that many of us feel these days as a result of chaotic global events and uncertainty about the future, Jenaia applied those values to Braided Lives. As one of countless people who saw the devastation of the Ukrainian invasion and felt a frustrating sense of powerlessness, Jenaia realized “What I am, however, is a storyteller who has learned that sharing our stories through song is one of the best ways to open hearts and keep hope and courage alive in the world.” Jenaia goes into great detail on the various goals of the Songs for Ukraine project: Entertain, Educate, and Inspire: “Bring people from around the world together to enjoy live music that supports and celebrates Ukraine. The concerts are held in recreations of places in Ukraine - e.g., the subways where people are living to escape the Russian bombs. These spaces are meant to give attendees a sense of what the Ukrainians are experiencing, including the hope and courage they’re displaying through their music. (Each live concert is broadcast in both SL and on the web so that anyone, anywhere with an internet connection can enjoy them. They are also recorded and archived so those unable to attend the live shows can listen later.)” Support and Educate: “Though we do not collect money, the “Songs for Ukraine” concerts provide information on more than 14 organizations that are offering aid to Ukraine. We also share poetry by Ukrainian poets and are starting to interview and post the work of Ukrainian artists and musicians.” Build Bridges: “To be effective, the work being done in virtual spaces needs to become readily available, easily accessible, and seen as relevant to the rest of the world. This is where music has a vital role to play: it crosses any and all boundaries, opens hearts, and reminds us that what we have in common far outweighs our differences.” Walking through the region feels like an episodic journey through space and time, as each section has a unique aesthetic and feels insulated in a comforting manner. The air of serenity makes it easy to relax, and art pieces are perfectly balanced with the natural beauty of the outdoors. Eventually Residents happen upon a seating area on an enclosed square of sand, reminiscent of a zen garden. Just past that, a literal approach to the concept of a word tree that provokes visitors to think about familiar concepts in a new light. Jenaia’s endeavor to foster resilience, hope, and connection features banners with inspiring quotes at the entrance and multiple stages for speaking and/or performing. There is also ample room for quiet contemplation, as one can see at a memorial for Ebbe Altberg, who many Residents remember as the CEO of Linden Lab until his passing last year. The poem “Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep” encourages the reader to live in the present moment and not be focused on the past or weighed down by grief for those lost. All are welcome to visit Braided Lives. In a world that teaches us to be constantly moving, allow yourself to rest. You deserve it, maybe more than you know. Video Production Credits: Draxtor Despres Musicians in order of appearance: Cylindrian Rutabaga, Frogg Marlowe, and Raspbury Rearwin. Braided Lives Braided Lives is a multi-platform initiative designed to bring people from all walks of life together to tell their stories and collaborate on the creation of a more equitable and sustainable future. The concept was born in response to the isolation, stress, anger, and frustration that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing racial tensions.

  3. Hello Everyone! I am looking for people who have experience in SIM/ group RP management. I am starting a new Political/Government themed project that will have a bit of role play in it but for the most part will heavily be involved in managing the finances, policies, infrastructure and running of sim and group. I will be financially backing the group as far as purchasing the land, financing the group but I would like the main council to start making decisions from the start from the budgets to what land we need to buy, activities, what infrastructure is needed, political involvement and so forth. The group will have full autonomy over the finances, rules, development and every aspect of the project. I therefor am looking for a handful of people to act as the first council (Council of Ministers) in order to get things up and started with decision making. Each member of the council will manage the budget for there respective department and vote on each matter that comes before it. The following positions I am Immediately looking to fill before I sit down with the council as a whole are as followed with a description. Councillor for Land and Development: This position requires someone with a understanding of the land transaction system here in SL as well as building up a SIM, LS , building and scripting. NOT saying that this person will be responsible for building and scripting the sim but anything that is needed for the sim Infrastructure, scripting, terraforming, or building this councillor would be the go to and oversee these areas.

Act as dominant person on council for these matters and have the ability to handle the budget for there respective department. Councillor for Political Development: This position requires someone with a understanding of government/political affairs as well as some knowledge of role playing. While the main Idea of the sim is to develop a mock government to run a sim and it's land as opposed to traditional management, some elements of Role Play will be incorporated here.

This position is tasked with getting across the general message, Ideas and overall goal of the project to it's members and prospective clients.

  5. I understand that politics is an extremely sensitive topic for most people on both the web and in real life. I am wondering if it is ok to talk about politics in Second Life? If not, what are the consequences that will happen to your Second Life account? Will you get banned or something? I've witnessed that the banning happens often in virtual worlds and websites for children and teens, but I am curious if that same rule applies to here.
  6. It will be the year 678. For more then 500 years the World of Comraich has known only the those of Valgard, Telrae'dor and Zuben. In each of the last ten years, rumors of border activity, unusual sightings, and even attacks have been reported. The Dyrling Rangers report a change in the flavor of the forest, the Euresu Oracles warn of coming strife and the Valgarin Shamans claim that the fabric of fate has been ripped. There sits on the three thrones each a king and queen but their rulership may soon come to an end. A dark prophecy predicts, "In the time when all three thrones stand in dispute, we shall return." Within days of the Autumn Equinox, in the year 677, three dire events came to pass. First, the King and Queen of Valgard lost their only heir and the clans prepare for war. Second, the King of Telrae'dor takes ill to his bed, his son and heir a Dubh Gentry. Civil war seems on the brink of eruption as some of the noble houses are rumored to support Aethemarc, the son of Queen Winifred. The King and Queen of Zuben celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary, and rumors spread that the Queen is pregnant. That which has not been seen in more than half a millennium stirs and that which was fallow shall rise again ... Opening 2018 Comraich is a realistic fantasy world geared for political role-play between player factions striving to win one or all of the three thrones. Created originally in 2004 for a private Ultima Online shard, we are delighted to finally bring this world alive in Second Life.

The custom mesh sim is being crafted by the professional build team of SOF Designs, with more then 15 years of combined experience in SL building. The fiction represents a combination of approachable popular fiction blended into a realistic depth that should appeal to any fan of historic earth cultures. An automatic solution to manage the complexities of political faction role-play is under development; a completely player driven story line without the bias of seers or admins.
