First and Second Life at least.

About… July 9, 2010

Route 4, the developed part of which deadends at the northern edge of Ello at this time, continues west in undeveloped form through a number of additional sims before merging into a newly paved and still unnamed road in Spectacle. Heterocera has quite an amazing matrix of roads running hither and thither!

Below Baker bites bikes in Shark, I believe, in what amounts to be a shallow canyon the protected route runs through just past where the pavement ends.

Moving to the woods just south of Heck’s Canyon making up most of the Cisseps sims, Baker stands in front of a decorative teleporter, but is afraid to head upwards because the land here is described as a Vampire Grove. Not that they aren’t probably quite friendly and congenial vampires, but Baker doesn’t want to take the chance, being limited in time tonight as usual.

But in checking behind himself today, Baker finds that he cannot use the teleporter anyways — apparently it’s private. And besides, the hover text at the top, also unnoticed by Baker at the time he took the below photo, states that this teleports one to the Mandala bead game, which Baker knows is just across Route 3B from here (road just to his left in the photo). More on that quite interesting place soon.

Just to the north, also in the Cissep Woods, is this nice cabin with accompanying pond and waterfall. Some hover text just outside the cabin states that everyone is welcome to use it. Interesting, given the land description here still includes the phrase “Vampire Grove”. 🙂

Another beauty spot within the woods, the layout of which is complex and dotted with many small ponds. If I stay in this region for any length, I’ll attempt to make a map so that I can understand the topography more myself.

Moving away from Heterocera altogether, Baker takes a snapshot of a lovely, hazy sunrise near the protected top of Dearheart Hill.

This night, Baker also revisits the Red Leaf Gallery in Hamnida on the Jeogeot continent, one of the closest listed galleries to his Blue Feather establishment on this landmass. It appears to be in a state of reconstruction of some sort. Hope it sticks around — Baker is interested in the name similarity with the Blue Feather admittedly (another red-blue connection).

The empty land of Gukyeol, part of the 4 sim Hanja Welcome Center, is just behind the now incomplete Red Leaf in the below photo.

“Turns out I was a woman all along.”

bb:

That’s a fascinating story, and a little nonsensical. But I liked it! Thank you.

Hucka D.:

You’re welcome. Now to Noru, Rubi, and so forth. You have questions?

bb:

I can’t seem to let go of either. I need both. Red and blue, in essence. Red pill/blue pill. Having cake and eating it as well. Can’t give up Rubi and the Temple of TILE; can’t give up the Blue Feather Gallery in Noru. I’m stuck right now, especially with the duplication of the Edwardston Station Gallery in Ello at Heck’s Canyon. And I’ve been shifting my focus to Carrcass-? of course.

Hucka D.:

Big job. Takes energy. Good you started an A-Z series of posts again. Where to explore next, though, I think you’re asking. Answer: Heck’s Canyon. Maybe Noru. Maybe Rubi. But Heck’s Canyon mostly. New Territory. Energy there. Galleries, you see.

bb:

How’s [delete name] doing, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

She’s adjusting. She’s balancing. Tough. Big job.

bb:

Best to let her glide on her own for a time.

Hucka D.:

But it adds energy to the area. Spice[ if you will].

bb:

I was going to ask more about Ruuster. You claimed the person I met on the Nautilus peninsula, the one that might be Ruuster’s peninsula, is Ruuster himself.

Hucka D.:

It was. Pointed you toward the Valley of the Nye, just the north, and then to Heck’s Canyon itself. H-E-C.

bb:

I’m going to check out more blogs this weekend that write about Heterocera, Hucka D. As you say, it’s as close to a perfect continent as Second Life gives us. But is a return to Sansara in the works as well?

Hucka D.:

The essential energy of Second Life has shifted to Heterocera more, and also the eastern side of Jeogeot, which would include Chilbo at the bottom. Edge. Sunklands is suffering[, though].

bb:

Lill Burn Vallery is vacant mainly. Aotearoa still empty. X-ville [Pine Tree Square] gone. Big Sink — no possible return currently, and no real mythology to latch onto there. It was nice in the winter[, though].

Hucka D.:

You’re having trouble adjusting back to Noru or Norum. Best not to buy the additional Noru property right now. Wait.

bb:

I’m missing something in Heterocera. On the eastern side.

Hucka D.:

Heterocera is mainly about SID and TILE and Syd and Tyle. Good that you are working slowly on the Temple of TILE, unlike your usual building style. Savor it.

bb:

That’s my center now in virtual reality, along with the [portable] Edwardston Station Gallery. And, I suppose, the Blue Feather Gallery still.

Hucka D.:

How to move from personal to general… You don’t know how still, and you must have patience. Carrcass-? will take a lot of energy up. Best to conserve in SL… keep what you have. But there’s another piece of the puzzle missing, and it’s on Heterocera. Eastern side. Or western. Down a road. In a valley.

bb:

What of Ruuster?

Hucka D.:

Controls red Mars and blue Jupiter in one. Holds both in its teeth. Mouth. Ralph Mouth. Mouth of Ralph. Nose of Rose… Equatorial.

bb:

I’m going to have to keep hiking around the edges of the Valley of Nye.

Hucka D.:

Tomorrow. (pause)
