We’re baaaacccckkkkkk




After a year off Steelhead is back in Relay for Life of Secondlife and the Salmons are ready to hit the track this weekend!! Our camp is on Celebrate

I missed the Salmons last year, the Aether Chrononauts where warm and welcoming and it was nice to be with them. But the Salmons are family and Steelhead is home. This just feels better to be Relaying with them again.


Relay starts this Saturday at 10am SLT and will run till Sunday at when ever we crash but the closing ceremonies are also at 10 am slt. Full Schedule of events is at this page

I'll be there the full 24+ hours and on the track! It's a little smaller *track map* then in past years so I am hoping to make a new lap record. And REALLY hoping the track behaves as wonderfully as it did last year.

also if you can't make it in world, you can donate at this handy link below!! And you'll be able to listen to the Relay events at http://t1radio.serverroom.us:8242 just pop that into your music listening program of choice, I use Winamp..… Read the restWe're baaaacccckkkkkk

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Egregore

EGREGORE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Epic Toy Factory. Egregore  by Mayah Parx.
A fantastical thoughtform of serene darkness immersed in light, a place where expected purpose is relative and surrealism casts it shadow across the land, inhabited by egregors this fantastical place is born of the collective phantasmagoria of its people. All of my photos of this sim can be seen at this link here

Egregore is a quirky but, a bit creepy, sim by one of my favorite sin designers, the toymaker herself Mayah Parx! Egregore has the feeling of a childs toy box scattered about the landscape, with the shops being in giant doll houses made for the giant doll like enhabatines of the sim. Other bits of toys, candy, and some of her past sims, dot the landscape. Be sure to walk on the piano keys!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Dawn’s Promise

DAWN’S PROMISE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Looking Glass.
Dawn’s Promise  by Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee.
A secret place between times where the old becomes reborn into the new. Majestic crumbling ruins dissolve into a sea of glorious foliage. A place where the lost energies of the past are converted into new life. Springs of life-giving water overflow. Flower petals and creative energy float on the breeze. This is the space between the exhale and the inhale. Full of hope and promise.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


I love this sim so much. I want to live in it. It's just a blissful, colorful, calming sim. Marcus and Sharni have scattered all sorts of cozy little nooks to rest in and enjoy the faire day with. I plan to pick up a number of them. They are so delightfully boho and fae like.

That the buildings are on what can only be described as upside down mountains adds to the magical ethereal feeling. Dozens of waterfalls spilling off of them into the water below add a calming effect.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – The Hill

THE HILL | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Titans & Solarium.
The Hill  by Kilik Lekvoda.
A peaceful and beautiful village built into the rolling hills surrounding a small lake. Breathe in warmth, peace, and maybe a little pipe smoke, A place where friendships sprout as readily as the mushrooms beneath leafy green trees.
All my photos of the sim are at this link

Welcome to the magical realm of the Hill. Or, as you will quickly learn, could also be called the Shire. This sim is a wonderfully sunny build that you expect to see Hobbits or a wizard pulling up in a cart at any moment. There's even a party going on! It's a super cheerful sim that just makes you happy to be in.

There are duck, goats, and bunnies, which I love. Also its a grand sim to prance about in that deer avatar from Chaddul Ro in. Whole flocks can be seen at times. That avatar has been a HUGE hit at the faire this year.

This is another of the Roleplay sims and you can learn more about it here

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Chaddul Ro

Chaddul Ro (Searlait Nitschke) | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by The Roawenwood.
An outpost of the Orcs of Chal Khizzur, Chaddul Ro stands on the edge of their territory. In the center of the outpost there is a beacon, rising above upon a tower guarded day and night by the orcs. It stands for strength; it stands against anyone who would douse it, a symbol to be seen to guide those from outside the protective barriers and walls back home. For the survivors that seek refuge from battle. It is believed that as long as the fires of the outposts are kept lit that there is always hope, sanctuary to be found and that the tribe remains strong.


I loved the simplicity of this sim. As an Orc output it didn't need a lot to it. You could feel the power of the orc in the build. The outpost towers gave watch for all those approach and are easy to defend.

Could not find the jail on the sim but I know sometimes they don't rez those till they are needed. I'll try to go back and get it later!

LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!! Ok no, please actually lets not fight in the faire sims. That would be bad. So maybe LET'S DO THIS THING would be better to say.

I have been so excited for Fantasy Faire this year. Last year I got pulled away a couple days and got behind on posting but this year I have a plan and spent all blogger day taking photos and I am READY. Only photos left to take are the item photos to give the wonderful creators more time to get them out. But those will start soon.

I am as usual, showing off my base Fantasy faire exploration outfit in this post. Since the Fairelands Junction has no stores on it, I used it for the base shot.… Read the rest

I am back..

I hope

Last year I went through some, hard times. Lotta crap, lost my post at OKRF, lost our house, had to move, had to stya with a friend for a month and half. It was bad. I was depressed. Only thing that kept me going was Roleplay on Mischeif managed a sim I found last year after Alan Rickman died. Made my first human avatar on a new account as student, then a few months later made yet ANOTHER account to play a Teacher as well. And now I am ooc sim staff!

But that place kept me from going totally into a bad place. The friends I have made there are many and I love it. I am forever grateful to it.

But I did fall back out of sim exploring while struggling to not get depressed. Other then Relay related events I did do one sim, even doing the Christmas shots was hard.. A totally amazing LEA sim telling the story of the Last Unicorn. and I utterly regret not blogging it when I went to it as it's gone now but so beautiful. It was very interactive as well. And the scripting for some of the areas was amazing.… Read the rest

I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to wrap up my posts for this Fantasy Faire. It's easy to forget in all the fun, fantasy and shopping why we are doing this.

But Monday night, during the faire, I was told some news that made it all hit home.

A friend of mine from the Mischief Managed sim told me that they had learned the previous Friday that their father had been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. And i had to sit there, and just think, and realize, that is why we do this. So no one ever again has to be told things like that. So that one day we will find a cure. And until then people like my friend have a place to turn to for help if they need it.

It's for him and his family that we raised L$ 7,378,209 ($ 29,513) in funds. It's for people like my darling friends at OKRF that are going through breast cancer right now. It's even for my best friend's mothers dog that has cancer.

And its for my friend, Chase, that I dedicate all the posts I made this year for Fantasy Faire to.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim – Malfience

Malfience | SLURL | INFOMalfience – Hunt Sim (Rynn Verwood)
Malfience is the world for The Fairelands Quest: The Tale of Exiles.
The blessed realm of Belfience was once an idyllic home to a multitude of peoples: Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Mer, and Dragons. All shared the beauty and bounty of the land, prospering together in peace and harmony.
But the Unweaver saw their joy, and hated it, and set about to destroy it utterly.



Malfience is the quest sim for this years Faire Hunt, The Tale of Exiles * Information here * and it is SOOO worth it to do! You get so much for your 250L or 350L ! I only have photos of the sim here, I didn't take any on the quest to save the surprise. But if you need a guide, Primdolls has put up her usually extremely helpful one here and here

I haven't gotten a chance to go over all the prizes, you get your usual bits of the sims in the first part, and things from many MANY creators in the second. The one I HAVE opened was KittyCats and its a SHOULDER VERSION of the Faerie Kitty!… Read the rest

Bright Haven (Kilik Lekvoda)
A fairytale market town brimming with wonder, happiness and magic. A stroll down the cobble streets might see you breaking out in song accompanied by your woodland friends.







So, at one point while exploring this bright lil town, I made some unholy squealing sounds, flailed about in my chair and scared the cat sitting on my desk. I will show you why in the photos.



The town itself, is lovely change of pace from all the darker Fantasy Faire sims, Bright colors, Pinwheels, and a happy mood just emit from the build. I loved it.



You can see all my photos of it here.

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim – Dangarnon

Dangarnon | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Death Row Designs
Dangarnon (Jaimy Hancroft/Eowyn Swords)
Villains roam the cobbled streets of a fallen Andolys where evil rolled in and blotted out the light. Skeletons of what once was are all that remain. Rotting and crooked the stone houses and towers are a sad reflection of their former glory. Darkness hangs over the land like a heavy blanket suffocating any ray of light. But even here, in all this blackness a shimmer of hope has managed to hide and survive, a tiny piece of what once was this magical place still lives within these dead walls. Perhaps all is not lost yet…


If you don't remember Andolys it was my favorite sim from last year and you can read about it here. Dangarnon continues the story of this fairy tale land, which sadly has not reaced a happy ending....yet. While you explore its crowded crooked streets click the things! There is so much to find in this sim. All tucked away into corners or back alleys.… Read the rest

Sapphire Mirror Lake – Arts and Entertainment Sim (Haveit Neox)
On the first warm day of Spring every year, the people at Sapphire Mirror Lake reconstruct an Iron Age skeleton of what we may call today a mythical beast: the centaur. It is said the secrets of a powerful lost technology are locked in their bones. This year, they have unearthed a 20 meter high gargantuan, but will it speak?
This is the Arts and Entertainment sim of Fantasy Faire 2016, with a central stage for a variety of first-rate performances, and two galleries featuring Fantasy themed art from the collections of some of the best photographers in Second Life.

This sim did that for me. I just, love it.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim – Serenity

Serenity | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by The NeoVictoria Project
Serenity (Kaelis Ember)
They say there are one thousand steps to the top of Serenity, an ancient city, every nook and cranny carved to perfection, smooth curves, beautiful terraces, stunning waterfalls, latticed windows. Built by ageless hands so many moons ago, they also say that those who ascend to the top of the city will discover something more valuable than gold, the knowledge we’re not alone in our fights.



Serenity is a peaceful, somewhat elven looking town surrounding a lake fed by small waterfalls. Everything is clean and sparkling. Candles are scattered about the town giving it an almost holy feeling. And at the center of the town a majestic tree, hung with balls filled with Mistletoe, stands, overlooking the lake below.

It's a really lovely yet simple build. I loved the tree the best.

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim – Echtra

Echtra | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by The Lost Unicorn Gallery Echtra (Loki Eliot)
The land is stuck in time. There is no summer nor is there any winter. There is just a grey emptiness hanging over the once busy town of Echtra and the surrounding moorland. And what of the legends that tell of a great sleeping dragon under the hill the town is built. Will the secrets of this once thriving community be revealed and if they can be discovered exactly who will awake?



Echtra is a descriptively simple looking slightly viking themed sim. But if you have materials on, it is a complex and amazing build. Loki used Sl materials perfectly to enhance this rainy sim. Just amazing. IT

It is also one of the Roleplay sims, The story by the Rickety Weasels, and you can learn more about it at this link. Also this sim and roleplay uses Second life experience tools , and you can learn more about that at this link here. Which will also catch you up on the roleplay.
