Scorpion has created a wonderfully evocative sci-fi experience in Sansar called Scorpion’s Lair. We visited it today on episode 85 (already?!) of Atlas Hopping with Drax and Solas, and it is so wonderful that I decided to make it my Sansar Pick of the Day. The major build is a dimly-lit cathedral-like space with a huge wind turbine where the altar would be found, all located in a fantasy landscape sharply lit from the horizon by a distant sun. Scorpion did a fantastic job creating this space!
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!
One of the best uses of virtual worlds is to enable you to create and curate your own personal art gallery! Sansar user Wurfi, who is an accomplished photographer in Second Life, has made a one-minute YouTube video showing off his new gallery in Sansar:
I think that this sort of cross-worlds pollination (showing off one virtual world to users of a completely different one) will become more popular over time. Who knows, it might even bring some more budding photographers into Second Life! If you want to visit in person, here’s the Sansar Atlas link.
