Spring is coming! And to encounter the increased level of sunlight by the stylish way, I have released fashionable steampunk Sunglasses.

Steampunk Flip-Lense Sunglasses. Made of certified mesh-wood to protect the rainforest!


As special feature they come with flip-lenses and six different lense colours. Yes, makes them look a little nerdy, but nerdy is the new cool! Especially if you are a steampunk!


The also come in Walnut...


...Ebony. The black & gold combination is lovely, isn't it?!


Also new in my store: Art Deco Fanlights: keeping you cool and illuminated, and this for just 1 Li!

The rules are rather simple: write your idea for each number into a notecard and write your name on it, so we can identify you later! (Hint: you don't have to name each number, but each number which gets chosen, wins!)

Here are the rules in their full epic lenght. I wish you happy naming!

Balloon Battle Part 3 - Results

Too bad I missed the battle this time. Instead I was battling a RL cold. Seems I have won at least there!




Nevertheless the third part of our tournament was another great success, so I've been told. So was the after-battle-party!

This time the tournament saw also a little modification: We introduced an altitude-limiter. I know, sounds complicated, but its basically just a invisible megaprim-platform to prevent balloons from rising too high.
The aim was more intense fights and preventing balloons to escape the battle by climbing out of sight. Both seemed to have worked very well.

The Winners of both round 1 and 2 were: Baroness DeSade and Ala - congratulations!

I hope to be back in the battle next Thursday though! Hope to see you all there!

New Shoregate Battle Balloon Tournament - Round 2 Results!

Was the first battle already a success, this time has been really a blast (no pun intended)! I didn't expect that we would actually hit the 20 Avatar-limit of the sim (hard to believe, but New Shoregate is a homestead after all!) - but we did!




So we had no less than ten (10!) battle balloons circling and firing at each other! How great is that? The amount of lag was surprisingly low. At least on my end: I barely noticed the notorious rubber-band effect or delays when steering. Not bad at all for a sim both at its prim- and avatar-limit!

Also a big thank you to Randy Quander again for the spectacular photos!








Ok, enough rambling, here the results:

Winner of the 1st Round: Some (thats me, if you haven't guessed already) and Emma.

Winner of the 2nd Round (and 1500 L prizemoney) : Silly and Lynnbexter.

The winners landing after a hard battle!


After the fighting was over, it was time to celebrate in the nearby Morlock's Revenge Pub!


Congratulations! Both rounds were damn tough fights - but very enjoyable nevertheless! See you all next Thursday for part three of the tournament!
