Empyreal Dreams, a different approach to Literature!

Featured in Second Life's Showcase, Empyreal Dreams is a very interesting sim. The result of the work of two creators, one based in England and one in the United Sates, it aims at creating a visualization of famous literature and poetry. It opened in November 2010 and it is a work in progress as more works are being prepared. When you teleport, you land in a Steampunkish teleportation area with several destinations available. Click the different posters to immerse yourself into the amazing world of words and how strong they can be.

The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

It is an ancient Mariner,
And he stoppeth one of three.
`By thy long grey beard and glittering eye,
Now wherefore stopp'st thou me?

The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
" 'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door;

The Bluebell by Emily Jane Brontë

The Bluebell is the sweetest flower
That waves in summer air:
Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirit's care.

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo

In 1815, M. Charles-Francois-Bienvenu Myriel was Bishop of D—— He was an old man of about seventy-five years of age; he had occupied the see of D—— since 1806.
Although this detail has no connection whatever with the real substance of what we are about to relate, it will not be superfluous, if merely for the sake of exactness in all points, to mention here the various rumors and remarks which had been in circulation about him from the very moment when he arrived in the diocese.

The awesome photos were taken by London (applause!!) and you can read the beginning of each of the pieces of Literature featured right underneath the pics. London and I enjoyed this sim very much. Do drop by! To keep updated on Empyreal Dreams latest news, click here for the blog! This is a sim worth a visit for sure. Artistically very well conceived with extraordinary results, Empyreal Dreams invites its visitor to revisit classic pieces of literature. Congrats to its creators!

Discussion @ LnL: Money Makes the Grid Go Round!

On Thursday 20th Jan at 2pm prompt, we'll be having another discussion in the Lounge. This week: Money Makes the Grid Go Round: Some people (like our lovely Lizzie & London) make wonderful things for sale. Some bring their RL work into SL. What alternatives are there, to making (and spending) money in SL? How important is a stable economy to the survival of the game as a whole? Does money even matter here? We'll be discussing these and other related questions. Hope to see you all there.

Wow, thousands!!!

It was a year ago that a visitor counter was rezzed at LnL! It is always interesting to see how many people drop by for a visit. Yesterday, one year later, we have reached the 29000 visitors! London and I managed to capture the moment! Thank you to all of you who visited LnL and who have shared this adventure with us. :)

This Thursday's discussion "Ethics and morals in SL"!

Thursday Discussions are back! On Thursday 13th Jan at 2pm we'll be having another discussion in the Lounge. This week: Ethics and morals in SL. Are they the same as they would be in RL, and why? Are there any universally-understood "rules"; things we should or should not do, or is it all completely subjective? How do you come by your own personal ethical code for behaviour in SL? We'll be discussing these and other related questions. Hope to see you all there.

The Black Heart of Babbage!

For young and old in Second Life, a challenge is always something worth our attention, especially when a mysterious hidden story is at hand! Loki Eliot presents The Black Heart, a New Babbage Chronicles Game open to every resident of SL. This game takes place in New Babbage, an industrial town populated by steampunky eccentric characters. The story starts when an archeologist dug up an ancient statue, inside of which a heartbeat could be heard. One morning it was cracked open and whatever was trapped inside had disappeared.

To add to the mystery, the archeologist went missing leaving a few items behind, a bag of letters and a map. In this game, you need to progressively uncover the story, figuring out clues one by one. Click on everything, grab clues everywhere and you may even ask Babbage's residents. Explore as much as you can!

Make sure to take a note of all details and to check the map of New Babbage. Every now and then taking a rest and rethinking the path taken so far is important. Sometimes even the most unsuspected places hold an important clue.

It may get a bit difficult at times! You may feel like you need to retrace your steps back and review your notes.
This game is very interesting and you have a lot of amazing places to discover!

A few hints:
> Create a folder with the name *******NEW BABBAGE (the asterixes will make that folder appear at the top of your inventory, right after the default folder).
> The Landing Point is crucial. It gives you a lot of information!
> Grab a Landmark of every location you find relevant so you retrace your steps back there if needed.
> Pay close attention to all the objects/letters/notes/etc. you find. ALL are relevant at some point.
> Also visit the blog here and the Twitter feed here to catch up on the latest news!

London and I enjoyed this game a lot and had a great time. Congrats go to Loki and to all who helped for the amazing job they did with the story and the interactive approach (there are online resources you are given like online short films)! The Black Heart of Babbage is waiting for you!

Updated: We have been posted @ http://twitter.com/babbagemystery :) Thank you!
