Simploring 2019 (55) Green Story (III) – Beach

“Welcome.
You will meet rain, snow, and sea.
take a breather from here
pause to think
walk at a slow time…
Green Story”

With these words you’re greeted when you enter Green Story. I visited Green story in 2018 the first time (read: Simploring 2018 (7) Green Story). After publishing my simploring report I got a hint from Annie Oh (anniebrightstar) that there’s another part of Green Story and I went exploring this wet part (read: Simploring 2018 (10) Green story (II)).

Green Story (III) Beach – Overview and around the landing point.

Inspired by seeing new posts about Green Story on scoop.it SL Destinations I went revisiting on Sunday, April 28th. In fact not much has changed. The snowy part with the many aurora borealis, which I visited first in 2018, is more or less unchanged, same goes for the second and wet part of Green Story. What’s new is that there’s a third part now. The three parts are named Aurora, Rain and Beach and can be reached by a teleport board, which is not as difficult to find then it was back in 2018. This said the welcome letter makes sense … rain, snow and sea.

Impressions of my enjoyable visit to Green Story (III) Beach

I focused on the Beach, as this was new for me. It’s what you’d expect from the name a large sandbank with an according long beach. There’re some tents, a salespoint for ice cream, a surf school and some scattered places to relax and enjoy the atmosphere and the sun. I followed the thought which Dior (Rich Canis), creator and owner of Green Story, wrote into the landmark’s description “You have to relax here. You have to think here. You Banks here Another memory.

A great beach to relax be it alone or with friends or with your love. Thank you Dior for creating this 3rd part and for sharing Green Story with the public.

Simploring 2018 (10) Green story (II)

After I published my simploring report about Green story on January 23rd (read here) I got a message from Annie Oh (anniebrightstar), who runs scoop.it (link is listed on the sidebar under Other links: scoop.it SL Destinations or read here). She told me that I missed a part of Green story, a part that isn’t green either but wet, and gave me a landmark to it: Green story II

You can reach Green story II either by this landmark or by a teleport hub that is close to the lighthouse of Green story but not easy to find particularly at night. This time I had still daylight and found it.

Impressions of Green Story II (1) – upper left pictures show the tp board at Green story

Green story II is in a skybox about 3.500 m above the sandbank of Green story. And it is really wet! The environment is set to night and there are many lights, light effects and fireflies – and reflections of the rain and puddles. Again Green story II is a fantasy world, a conglomerate of cosy huts and spots, of ruins and art. You really can get lost in thoughts when wandering through the rain or when you sit down and just admire the light effects. I recommend to switch the music on, it’s a radio program with piano music (at least during my visit). There are no nothern lights but the moon shines through the clouds and provides a mystic atmosphere.

Impressions of Green Story II (2)

Don’t cry when the sun is gone,
because the tears won’t let
you see the stars.
In my heart lies a memory
to tell the stars above.
I’ll never forgt meeting you here,
our love is like the wind,
I can’t see it — but I can feel it

is written on a wall just above one of the many cosy spots.

Impressions of Green Story II (3)

Green story II is a place for lovers, very romantic. There’re also several spots to dance. It’s another place to dream and to mediate, to live in your fantasy. Thank you, Dior (rich.canis) for sharing Green story and Green story II with the public. I enjoyed my second visit as much as my first!

Simploring 2018 (7) Green story

Tuesday, January 9th, I went on a simploring tour late night after Jenny had already left. I looked up scoop.it (link is listed on the sidebar under Other links: scoop.it SL Destinations or read here) and choose Green story as destination.

Green story – overview

The sim’s name “Green story” is misleading, there’s no green. Instead Green story is a larger sandbank somewhere up in the North, something that doesn’t exist in the physical world. It’s cold, it is snowing, it is windy, the sand is covered with snow where the wind hasn’t blown it off.
The island is dominated by a big lighthouse with an attached scaffold, which purpose isn’t comprehensible for me. At the foot of the lighthouse, is a small hut and from there a broken railway track leads to an old railway car, that is used as a home.

First impressions of Green story

The rest of Green story is mostly empty besides some elks and goats. On the top of the dune you’ll find a windmill. A bit away from the main sandbank is a small island with a campfire and an empty residential shed. Up in the sky is a suspension bridge held by ballons, that might connected the small island with the main island before it got loose and went up in the sky.
With the sim’s windlight settings you see northern lights everywhere that produce a very pecialatmosphere together with the permanent snow falls.

On the top and at the foot of the lighthouse at Green story

Green story is created and owned by Dior (rich.canis) as far as I could find out. The landmark description doesn’t contain too much about the creator’s intentions and ideas “You have to relax here. You have to think here. You bank here another memory.”

At Green Story: the old railway car and sitting at the campfire on the small disconnected island

Green story is pure fantasy, a mix of several fantasies, a bit like a dream that doesn’t make sense often. There’re several really cosy spots to sit and to mediate looking at the northern lights and warmed by a fire. The snow storm at the top of the scaffold is not really inviting but the view from the top is great and luckily in Second Life you don’t need to protect yourself against the cold too much.

Green story: the suspension bridge and other impressions

All the inconsistencies of Green story, of this artful creation, give reason to dream and to mediate, to let your mind wander or to simply enjoy the beauty of the northern lights and of the atmosphere.
Thank you Dior, for sharing Green story with the public. I enjoyed my visit!
