The Scary Season

Each Season has it’s own attractions. This time of the year is not only the year’s last loveliest smile, it’s also preparing for Halloween. And Halloween is something particular in Second Life. Almost every sim is decorated for Halloween, pumpkins and other decorations are set out. And whole sims are created just for this time of the year.
For me Inara’s blog seems to be an endless source of exploring proposals. This time it brought me to Ironwood Hills. You can read her description of Ironwood Hills in the Living in a modemworld blog, her post is titeled “Amidst the Ironwood Hills in Second Life.

Although not designed exclusively for Halloween, it’s the right time to visit Ironwood Hills. I strongly recommend that you follow the instructions that you’ll get when entering the sim. Turn “Advance Lighting” on (in Firestorm hit alt-p and check the first checkbox in the Light tab). You will also get a flashlight offered when you enter the sim. Wear it! WOW … it’s foggy, steam rises from the gullies and the flashlight beam adds to the overall scary scenery. Unfortunately my graphic card came to it’s limits when I also turned avatar shadows on in the phototools (alt-p, 2nd tab). But I managed to take at least some pictures before crashing.

I went to Ironwood Hills several times, the first time together with sklavin, slave Flo and slave Ashley. In one part it is heavily raining and there are the rests of a parish fair with a carrousel and a big weel. It is raining cats and dogs and so heavy that you literally walk through a sea. And the flashlight makes the scenery sort of unreal.

My second visit was with Jenny and slave Flo and we had a real good time there and took lots of pictures. When you explore Ironwood Hills, be aware that sometimes you’ll see girl in a skirt full of blood stains sometimes and all of a sudden, scary! And this girl will appear not only once, she is really haunting you wherever you go.

Ironwood Hills is sort of obligatory for those who like the scary season and for those who love taking pictures in SL in a particular environment. To finish this blog post, here’s the best picture I took at Ironwood Hills (at least I think it’s a really good one). Enjoy your visit!

Dear Diary – Back in Charge (II)

It’s been a while that I’m back in charge and over the last couple of days I could take some nice pictures, that I want to save in this blog. The first picture was taken Sunday, Sept 20th, when we spent most of the night at home. That night, our maid Sophie was on duty. She had a lot of work to catch up while we sat outside on the porch of the main house, where I made room for a coffee table and some chairs. It’s just relaxing to sit there at home, to chat and to drink a glas of wine served by the maid.

We also visited Adara Kattun’s new Silent Island. We really like it there and Adara made a very good job. We sent Kitty out to explore it more in Detail, so hopefully there’ll be a longer report about it here very soon. So far, there’re two pictures for this entry. The first was also taken on Sunday, Sept 20th, when Adara gave me a quick tour and invited me to a flight over the island. As mentioned before, I think Adara is a very talented builder, but her flying skills do need to improve a bit. I survived the flight though.

The second picture was taken when we visited Silent Island together with the slaves on Thursday, Sept 24th. After some walking we sat down at the bondage cafe.

On Saturday, Sept 26th, we attended a party and had some fun there. Sklavin had to kneel beside us and we checked every once in a while that she was attentive. That and her overall good behavior and obedience over the least weeks was reason enough to reward her. We did that at Ropers playground, that offers a wide variety of racks and toys among those is this very useful “rewarding machine”, that sklavin was allowed to enjoy. I myself was a bit distracted as I found a perfect viewing angle on Jenny’s behind – yummy.

Beside these activites I enjoyed my togetherness with Jenny and I enjoyed being in charge. I had time with Jenny alone and we also took the time we needed. That’s our privilege. At DaD i took the following two pictures on Saturday, Sept 26th. I do love in particular how my property looks up to me. I can’t get enough of it :-).

That’s it for now. I took some more pictures, but I’ll keep those for myself ….
