More Sansara Wanderings April 28, 2009

Baker Bloch walks from the Temple of TILE in Hibdon to the large, forested island next to Graduation Island explored last fall. Only forest on this particular island, though. And rock. Lots of trees and grass and ferns and rock.

A little while back, Baker requested help from a detective agency based in Grignano concerning the “mysteries of Sansara”. Perhaps they thought the request was a little too broad or maybe a little too daft. Whatever, he hasn’t heard back from ’em yet.

Another forest, this time a non-Linden one in the Pomponio sim. This one covers about fifth of a sim, and is densly packed with pines. A strangely out of place wood prim sits in a small, square clearing in its center.

More evidence that TILE is everywhere. All Things, as Hucka D. put it.

Albion Park, quite near the forest pictured above. Not extremely large but nice. On granite, and next to the Pomponio Volcano. In fact, I would assume, without checking, that both the forest with the wood prim at its center and Albion Park both share a border with this *smoking* Linden protected volcano parcel. According to the land description, they also apparently hold SL College classes here at times.

Then Baker Bloch popped over to the famous Forest of Kahruvel preserved by the Phyneas Jack Memorial Trust, specifically to check out the living quarters of Enja Mysterio, a long term resident of SL and apparently one of the few permanent residents of the forest. Turns out that I tied with Ms. Mysterio’s blog for the 94th most popular blog in SL, har har. What this means I’m not sure, but here’s the list in case you wanna check.

But in checking today more about Enjah another ahah! moment occurred. She and the detective I called up have one and the same user! Hmmmmm… well, that’s an interesting twist! Have to think about that more.

Baker Bloch also found another sim border fissure, perhaps as long or even longer than the one Wilsonia just found, but not as deep. Quite interesting; I wonder how many there are like this in SL? I know they have something to do with the much greater limits on terraforming that use to be in effect.

Such as we have an example of here! I don’t have time to send Wilsonia looking for these towering pointy peaks, but I can deduce from this snapshot they’ve got to be at least close to 100 meters high apiece.

Blochs’ also visits Wilsonia’s beloved Snow Region that night, taking this lovely twilight shot of ski slope with rocks, mountain, and moon.

A pop over to the Okinu sim, then…

… completed by a visit to Kissling. *More* weirdness here (as I found out a couple of days ago). A friend of *both* Ms Mysterio and my long time email friend Headburro Antfarm named Nish just posted about visiting this sim on her Big Orange One blog, as well as the Lusk sim. I’ll have more to say about that and Nish’s super-nifty Sansara explorings herself as soon as I have time. That’s all for now!

  1. […] beyond the +/- 4 meter limit imposed on this continent, he thought (but not parts of Sansara… see here for examples). He must check into how people can sidetrack this […]
