Pink Jeogeot July 15, 2010

Mysterious pink, er, clouds over the Jeogeot landmass found through the slrul.com site.

My only guess would be that it represents some kind of massive griefer attack on the continent. Or, more likely perhaps, the “error” lies in the map file itself.

The splotchy pink-ness is spread over an area about 5 sims high and 4 sims long, with concentrations in Decimo and Adder especially.

Adder concentration.

Smaller Decimo sim concentration.

Southern extent.

Whatever, it instantly made me think of the pink or fuchsia colored building not too far to the east of this, in Noguri. I decided to teleport over there to see if the building was still in place. It is, for now. The land is up for sale, but is unlikely to go anytime soon, hehe, because the asking price is over 22 lindens per square meter. With land prices continuing to drop, my guess is that the standard will soon be close to 1 linden per sq. meter, as it is in many inland continental locations already (witness: Noru!).

Just across the Linden route from the fuchsia building, and still in Noguri, Baker found about 6 or 7 female avatars practicing erotic dancing techniques, it appeared, with the lone dancer separated from the main group (right) wielding a *pink* sparkly pole of some kind. Just noting.

Baker then flew over to a location on the western edge of the map pink-ness, a nicely landscaped area near the center of Pongsonhwa. Nothing unusual about the environment that Baker could find.

 

“Passages?”

“My father, who is also myself, are glad you like the trees.”

bb:

Thanks, Hucka D. They’re quite grand (!)

Hucka D.:

Norum is looking a little bare these days, outside your forested area. It’s a past time paradise.

bb:

We seem to have gotten quite away from “Carrcass-?”. I really feel good about the Noru land now, Hucka.

Hucka D.:

As you should. Very varied. Trees were part of a finishing touch. Kelly and I are pleased.

bb (sensing that Hucka D. didn’t want to talk about his old, supposed…):

Well, what the heck. Do you want to talk about your old…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

Not really. Thanks, though. I wish to talk about Norum. Grassy Noll… Grassy Knob. The hidden shooter. “Shoot Me”, Cpt. Burr was requested. Sapphire recreated this all again and again in “Norum in the Gazebo.” Col. Ceiling Fan was turned into a shark to begin. Maj. Sweepy View was shot by Chief Ironside. Cpt. Burr shot the chief, in turn. But it is all myth, all story. None of this happened. Or did it all happen exactly as Sapphire had written it?

bb:

Maybe a mix.

Hucka D.:

The 5th escaped — Philip Linden, or Phillip Linden — and the Linden Grid passed through Norum, creating Noru and the others. Sapphire was ready. Or was she totally unready?

bb:

Perhaps Sapphire… hold on…

*****

bb:

I think I’m going to look for the real Mt. Jeogeot this weekend, Hucka D. Or chronicle my adventures in doing so for this blog.

Hucka D.:

There are almost a half dozen of them. Unbaker’s half dozen… sorry.

bb:

Five then.

Hucka D. (ashamed):

Yeah.

bb:

Sapphire obviously claimed to have her House of Truth on one, the highest point in Noru at least.

Hucka D.:

You know there are higher[ now].

bb:

I’m admitting this is a lot more interesting forest than the former one I had in Noru last year, more in the northwest part of the sim.

Hucka D.:

It is still there.

*****

I have to figure out how the toy avatars fit in here. Grassy Knob seems to be a link.

Hucka D.:

Burial mound. Before the Old No Room Cemetery, even.

bb:

Maybe there’s a hole in the side of the hill there to a subterranean chamber.

Hucka D.:

You can figure that out by geomancy.

bb:

His old home, perhaps??

Hucka D.:

You know Gene Fade was the user of Bracket Jupiter and also Karoz. Karoz lived in Norum[ at least]. Is Grassy also an avatar of Gene Fade’s? Karoz visited Chilbo, but it was “merely” Chilbol, then, not as large or as central as Norum. The grid came… Chilbol was wiped out, essentially, or not recognized in the transition. Chilbo was created. Norum was lessened and then deserted, basically. The gazebo sunk into the ground. The play was no more.

bb:

Why would Cpt. Burr come back from the future and shoot himself in the past?

Hucka D.:

Passages. Thank you.

 

Around Noru(m), 01

Filed under: Jeogeot Continent,Norum,Parktown — baker Blinker @ 7:01 am

Baker bikes through mucho empty land just west of Noru in Megi. Looks like most of the land for sale here is going for about 2 lindens per sq. meter.

Then on the east edge of Koni just west, in turn, of Megi, comes a familiar sight of a rock path leading to a windmill along a ridge, a place both Karoz and Baker visited a number of times during their first Noru stay last year. Nice to see some things haven’t changed about the region.

It still looks like the great majority of Koni is owned by CaroForFun Oh and Mylene Mills, who have set up quite a complex of landmarks here, including the beautiful waterfall below that Baker’s taking a dip beneath.

Here’s just some of the attractions of the land. The Grace Temple, Cavern Waterfall, and Memorial Crypt are part of one underground system of tunnels and rooms that The Bakers have visited several times, more on the east side of the sim. We plan to return. 🙂

Then shifting over to a different direction from Noru, Baker also revisits a town called Parktown, chanced upon just a month or two ago for the first time, and finds some additional institutions there, like the quite stylish Parktown Art Gallery. Yet another place he plans to revisit now and then, along with, of course, the whole of Parktown itself, which is now spread out into quite a number of sims. A comparison to Chilbo is perhaps not out of line, although I seriously doubt it has the cohesive management structure of the latter, nor the same community support. Could the 2 perhaps form a kind of partnership in the future?

Finally this same night, Baker pops over to Baekdu from nearby Parktown to look in on the supposed site of Hucka Doobie’s old homestead, talked about, for instance, in this post from last May. The Cabron structure has long been de-rezzed, along with the building with the picture of “Bill” on it. However, Baker was very pleased to find some really nice 2 prim, freebie trees not known about before on the same parcel that contained Cabron, which Hucka D. later claimed to be a gift from himself to Baker. Hmmm…

Whatever the case, the inclusion of a good number of these colorful trees significantly adds to my Noru landscaping efforts.
