A Sorceress’s Abode

The sorceress welcomed them onto the roof of her desert citadel, with a view that stretched even to the distant ocean, and offered them refreshments, the juice of a glowing blue fruit that tasted unlike anything else.

The Tiane dress from Luas for We Love Role-Play called for a full-on fantasy mood rather than something more pseudo-historical. The beautiful jewel tones of the dress paired well with the fantastical Fenfruit set from Cerridwen’s Cauldron, which includes both the fruits themselves and two different beverages made from it presented in different flasks and flagons.

The ornate table, with its gorgeous mosaic top, and the leather pouf are both by Lore. The table includes a HUD with several different wood colours and even more options for the mosaic top, which manages to capture a really glassy look.

Dark Fire

Maxwell Graf, the creator behind Rustica, has been on a longer hiatus from creating in Second Life. But yesterday he dipped his toes back in with the release of a versatile mesh fire, intended as a high-quality replacement fire for fire places, torches etc. Of course, since it is fully modifiable, I decided to do something rather different with it and created a demonic landscape with black crystals and fire. The fire can be turned on and off with a click and you can also edit the way the three different meshes that make it up fit together by editing linked parts.

The pose is Dark Matter by Be My Mannequin? and it is perfect for showing off the striking Draugr skin by Fallen Gods, here with the addition of the Orthae tattoo in silver. The hair is by Mythril and it allows you to set various specular maps; here I went for one with a fiery effect to match the surroundings.

Fantasy Faire 2021: Entering Faerie

One does not simply walk into Faerie, even if one finds one of the gates that leads there. Faerie is an ever-changing realm of both beauty and terror and one needs to be prepared for the dangers that lurk within. A trusty steed, bold and well protected by armour, is a good companion for a perilous journey. An enchanted dagger at one’s side might also help, and jewellery infused with charms of good luck.

(Also, as an aside, if you have not read The Call by Peadar O’Guilin, do so if you want to read a truly frightening account of Faerie.)
