First and Second Life at least.

Villeneuve Forest & Beyond… December 5, 2009

Filed under: Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 3:58 pm

Baker Bloch standing on the island in the middle of Ratzenberger’s Rabbit Head, staring toward the 8 sided small tower just north in the neighboring sim of Villeneuve.

Do these 2 stubby red oak trees have anything to do with the involved mythology? he muses at the time. More later on that?

Top of the tower or small castle. Interestingly there’s a hepagram based design in the center of the 8 sided tower top. As Karoz is checking behind Baker now, he finds that its a Sigil of John Dee, designed to “communicate with angels.”

Baker explores a bit more of the forest tonight than he’s accomplished before, but decides to save a fuller probing until another night…

… as it’s on to the east side of Yd Island tonight, across the high, single spinal-type ridge essentially separating the 2 sides of the island from each other. Kind of, anyway. Here Baker is in Brabham just southwest of Ratzenberger, standing in front of another perhaps peculiar body of water that Karoz presently finds strangely reminiscent of Rabbit Head. Nice waterfalls; fairly realistic. And that’s a beaver home to Baker’s immediate left. A perhaps suspiciously attentive heron looks toward the swimming beaver family just outside. Other water birds dot the landscape surrounding the pools. But as far as Karoz can tell today, there’s only one fish in either the lower or upper pools here (lower).

Note: although a second waterfall is present in the scene here — essentially a duplicate of the nearer of the 2 waterfalls to Baker that separate the 2 pools in question — it strangely doesn’t drain another pool further up but instead just “emits” from the ground. A spring?

To complete the explanation of this small water system, a stream drains from the upper of the 2 pools, only to dead end about 150 meters south near the Brabham/Westbury line (but not on the line, as one might think).

Uh oh. Another big rabbit sighted in Westbury, in what appears to be a small, ocean-side Japanese village mainly composed of clean, white buildings set within immaculately and precisely landscaped grounds. Karoz is checking behind Baker: the rabbit is gone today (!) A dog is near the gate now, not present in Baker’s snapshot below. Has the rabbit turned into a dog?

And the village itself seems to be deserted, as Karoz is finding in poking around more than Baker Bloch did that day.

 

Hole, Part 28064212

Filed under: Jeogeot Continent,Nautilus Continent — baker Blinker @ 9:09 am

Best set of Second Life maps I’ve found on the web, Hucka D. There’s Yd Island smack in the middle of this particular snapshot. *Now*, check this out… there’s a hole in the eastern part of the Nautilus continent that we’ve known about for a while.”

Hucka D.:

I’ve known about it since before The Beginning.

bb:

Alright, good. And this hole is directly above Yd Island. You can see the relationship better here. Actually I’m just going to upload a low resolution shot of that continent into this post… if I have to delete it later I will.

Hucka D.:

Just give credit to the creator in a footnote*

bb:

So you can quite clearly see the hole above Yd. Island now. It would be the equivalent of 10 sims. A little bigger than Big Sink, then.

Hucka D.:

This is where Vileness lives now.

bb:

I knew that was going to come up. This inland sea, then, with the 10 sim hole in the center, is the realm of Vileness, the ancient extent anyway.

Hucka D.:

Something is going to happen in that hole. Pay attention.

bb:

Reminds me, of course, of Nautilus City island rising overnight from the sea last October. We were there almost that same hour!

Hucka D.:

Quite close. I warned you about that as well, if you remember.

bb:

I do!

Hucka D.:

Now you know there is a relationship between Nautilus City Island and the similarly sized Yd Island directly to its north. It’s fortunately, really, for VILE that Nautilus Island formed, for that takes attention further away from his Inland Sea and the hole. The Hole.

bb:

You called him Vile…

Hucka D. (correcting):

VILE.

bb:

Ok, no need to shout. So Vile…

Hucka D.:

VILE. Use your lungs. Just do it.

bb:

Alright. VILE lives or lived in that Inland Sea.

Hucka D.:

The Sea of VILE. Like the Sea of Green except combined with the Sea of Holes. Or Hole.

bb:

Did you know that a 5 year old Courtney Love was pictured on the back cover of Grateful Dead’s Aoxomoxoa album?

Hucka D.:

Study that album. Relate it to Aotearoa. And do some more drugs. Baker Bloch should do some more drugs, I mean. In a pretend way of course (smiles).

bb:

Right. We’ll send him back to the big bong sometime soon.

Hucka D.:

He’ll see the fish, then. Altered States. Collage. It use to come right up to the gallery parcel, in fact, all the way to Rabbit Head. It use to slink right through the Villeneuve Forest you live in now through your 1024 extension. Rabbit Head was a way to keep it from going even further inland. He had to stop at Ratzenberger. This is where [Sea of] Green separated from Yellow [Submarine]. Pepperland.

bb:

Greenup and yellow down, then.

Hucka D.:

Right through that forest it came. You can still see the slime in places if you look carefully.

bb:

I’ll remember that the next time Baker Bloch passes through. (pause) Now back to The Hole. It looks like to me that this is a unique void on the grid, because it is the only one surrounded by mainland. No, wait, there’s one more sim to fit into that group, caddycorner to Mos Ainsley, perhaps interestingly.

Hucka D.:

That’s how they left the grid.

bb:

The, er, Chilboleans, you mean?

Hucka D.:

Yes. They left through The Moon. But they were called Chilbolites. That was when Jeogeot was chilly itself [actually]. Before the clothes and all.

bb:

That’s really a fascinating story about a Chilbo before a Chilbo, Hucka D. But let’s return to The Hole, the bigger one. Wait… know what you’re going to say again… “one and the same.”

Hucka D.:

That’s The Escape. Pay attention now. The people of Jeogeot came to Yd Island. It’s like Oz, only yellower. The Measure is where they left the story of their escape, before the destruction of ancient Chilbol [with the “l” on the end]. (pause) I would suggest you attempt to figure out what’s inside The Hole. Past-present-future.

bb:

I’m assuming it’s not Courtney Love.

Hucka D.:

Love. VILE.

bb:

Whatever happened to Courtney Flats?

Hucka D.:

In a way, you can say the hole was made with a screwdriver. F*ck you.

bb:

Language again! What’s gotten into you??

Hucka D.:

You know. Hole. The Hole. Female. Womb. Emergence. VILE. Vileness. Courtney Flats. Courtney Fats.
