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.
I have already profiled C3rb3rus’ urban noir science fiction experience 2077 as my Sansar Pick of the Day, here and here. But I revisited it today at our regular Saturday Atlas Hopping, and I was so impressed by what C3rb3rus has added to the experience that I am making it my Pick of the Day again!
At the spawn point is a new Holomap, which gives an overview of all the locations within the sprawling sim. And C3rb3rus has even scripted it to include little red figures to indicate where all the avatars are located in 2077 in real time!
When you arrive at the spawn point for this experience, turn around and go downstairs into the subway station (C3rb3rus has added some fun, futuristic advertising there). Get on the subway train when it arrives and ride it until the next station, then get off and come back up to street level. You will have arrived at a large opulent club called Palladium, complete with a DJ booth, and an extensive aquarium built into the walls, complete with animated schools of fish, and even sharks swimming around!
With all these wonderful, inventive new additions, 2077 is a joy to explore. Even if you’ve visited before, it’s definitely worth another visit!
And C3rb3rus has hired DJ Puddles to perform for us today (Saturday, February 2nd) at 2:30 pm Pacific time, so come join us! We’re starting the party off with a street rave on the main street, and then moving over to the Palladium club. Here’s a Sansar Altas link to 2077.
