Sansar Pick of the Day: Keep on the Borderland

Ambard has created a sprawling, moody medieval experience in Sansar, called Keep on the Borderland, where you must explore and interrogate various characters you encounter, in order to collect shards and solve a mystery.

Ambard describes it as follows:

On the outskirts of the known world stands a mighty keep. For centuries it has stood, protecting our lands from the threats of darkness and despair. Lately, the monks of the keep have been fighting to keep out the darkness as the magic that protects the borderlands has started to fail. You have been summoned to return power to the monks by finding four powerful shards hidden throughout the borderlands. Will you find the shards or will you fail like so many before you. The borderlands await you: come and live the adventure!

Can you solve the puzzle?

Sansar Video: Follow the Dancing Bear

Sansar user Wurfi has created a wonderful, beautiful 5-minute YouTube video that really gives you a representative sampling of the 1,396 public Sansar experiences created to date by the social VR platform’s wildly creative users (as far as I could tell, the only Sansar Studios created experiences included were Aech’s Garage from the movie Ready Player One, and the Sansar Social Hub):

Enjoy, and please be sure to share this video with your social networks!

Sansar Outfit Outlay: Chisaki

You know, when I first heard that the Sansar development team at Linden Lab was focusing on dressing custom avatars, my first thought was “meh, I’d rather have custom skins first“. But now that I can see all the creative possibilities, I think this is a brilliant move. Dozens of new human custom avatars have appeared on the Sansar Store, and over the weekend I signed in as my alt, Vanity Fair, Sansar supermodel 😉 and picked out a new custom avatar to style.

The Chisaki Asian female avatar is a custom avatar created by KandyBrainz, for sale for S$500 (about US$5.00):

Also available from KandyBrainz is the futuristic top-bun hairstyle, for S$250 (about US$2.50):

As with any custom avatar (well, within reason), you can dress this avatar using any clothing created using Marvelous Designer (and any shoes you buy from the Sansar Store should work with it as well).

Vanity Fair is wearing:

  • the Chisaki custom Asian female avatar (there is also a second version with makeup available);
  • the top-bun hairstyle;
  • a black tracksuit jacket, one of the new items of clothing available for free in your avatar’s Lookbook inventory;
  • a pair of black matte sports pants, which I picked up for free quite some time ago, and which I cannot for the life of me find again on the Sansar Store (I think they were these ones by Tremaine, but I’m not sure);
  • and a pair of black old kicks sneakers by Wow (S$99 on the Sansar Store).

TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: S$849 (about US$8.50 or CDN$11.30)

By the way, I have tested and I can confirm that custom avatars can wear Marvelous Designer-created clothing originally intended for both male and female avatars. You might have to do quite a bit of tugging and adjusting in Lookbook, though.
