hi Natalia. I was wondering if you could also write something about elves/fairies. Becose you also know a lot about mermaids. I would really liek to become a fea for instance so could you please liust some spots or something?

-x-x-x- Haylie

SLNatalia said...

Haylie, Ive been to a couple of fantasy sims that have areas for Elves and Faes...in particular, Avilion Grove/Avilion Isle and Elf Circle (ElfHaven). Elf Circle is probably the best area, since they have regular events and a whole community. Isle of Wyrms has dragons, but I also see Fae's there. These are all in the Travel Guide :)

There are also some smaller spots, like Faerie Grove and Faerie Gardens.

I want to be a Fae one of these days too. Have to get my wings :)

Haylie Cortes said...

thank you very much:) i think you will look great as a Fae:)

SLNatalia said...

Haylie, heehee thanks. Now I just need the right set of wings and antenna :P

Check Qinan (SL) said...

Natalia, thank you for all your posts, they are most informative. I wish I had read them before I jumped into SL, it would've made for a nicer transition I think.

Anyway, do you know of anyone who is playing or building a soccer/futbol sim? Thx - Check

SLNatalia said...

Check, thanks :) I saw soccer/football fields in Virtual Morocco, Bollywood, and the old Parioli (Rome) sims. Ive never seen them play inworld, but Im sure they do...

You might want to ask the sim owners or check to see if there are any soccer/football groups :)

Aura said...

Hey Natalia, wow you have got a great list compilied here: ) I was wondering though if you have ever heard of the game called Tiny Empires, it is played through a HUD and runs in the background of SL while you are playing. It is a game based in the era of fuedalism and I think it would be a good addition to your list : )

Hi Aura :) Heehee I actually have seen Tiny Empires...its a bit controversial, so I stayed away from it. But I really should take a closer look at it. Thanks for the tip!
