Exhausting and Satisfying

Hey, its about time for an update.

You might think I am too lazy to write here. Truth is, I am too ‘all over the place’ most of the time to focus on proper posting. RL first, that’s pretty challenging since I picked up a new job. Things might calm over time, we shall see. And then SL…. bloody hell, I thought I would never manage to meet all the deadlines for the upcoming October !

It takes me about a week focusing on a theme to come up with the one idea that feels right…then another to begin creating, then few days to improve, polish and finish and then a day to properly box it up, make pics, promote, set vendors, decorate the demo booth …eventually setting up at the event location. And that’s only the Exclusive item. Along that way I get ideas for future items, note them down, come up with Gift and Prize ideas and using the creative breaks to create them, polish, box, etc … So there comes always that point where I am multitasking, switching between projects, quickly setting up for an unexpected event or something that slipped my attention. Its pure chaotic madness, and I admit, I totally love it. Its exhausting and satisfying same time. Sounds familiar? Yeah !

This being said, though I am silent, I am very creative and productive these days.

I found a new toy to play with, an addon to blender that helps creating humanoid characters. So it makes no wonder that 2 products that are available in October are NPCs.

I am truly in love with this kid, gender unknown, fate unknown, parents unknown. But pretty much between dead and alive. It is my exclusive for Ironwood Hills Haunting

That’s enough of time spent on writing – I go back to being creative. I throw the vendor pics in my flickr pool https://www.flickr.com/photos/mandragora-lilith/ feel free to follow me there.

Light Em Up

My 2nd Life

Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark

“Be careful making wishes in the dark,
Can’t be sure when they’ve hit their mark,

I’m in the de-details with the devil
So now the world can never get me on my level
I just gotta get you off the cage
I’m a young lover’s rage
Gonna need a spark to ignite

My childhood spat back out the monster that you see
My songs know what you did in the dark
So light ’em up, up, up”

Why should you read this?

If you visited Dandelion already, then you know how beautiful our land is. Maybe you enjoyed our adventures and maybe you are one of those using the land to chill alone or with friends and take a relaxing break.

And maybe – just maybe – you always wondered if it was possible to live at Dandelion – or to run your business next to ours or even both!

Well now! the time has come.
Since we figured that we are using only the half of the available prims we decided to share our land!

So if you are looking for a beautiful place with lovely neighbors for your store or just your home, then reading this is just the right thing to do!

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dandelion/201/45/24

We are offering 2 quarters or 1 half sim rentals in our beloved ♥ Dandelion ♥
Land Theme: Medieval / Fantasy.

4394 Land Impact

or

You should know that we are interested in keeping the overall feel of our home as natural as possible.
We guarantee that we are doing our best to keep the sim a busy place – and would like to find you share the same interest.

Dandelion Sim Rules

– Pay rent in time
After 5 days of being overdue everything on the land will be returned with no exception

– Theme
Stay in theme with the natural look of the sim.
No neon signs, no flashing futuristic things, no sigh blocking huge divider etc.
This includes no modern buildings at all – All structures must be Medieval / Fantasy style.
Keep the visible overall design appealing for visitors and avoid littering.

– Skyboxes
Are okay at a minimum height of 1000 m (above 3000 is recommended)

– Keep your prim usage within the parcel allowance and parcel borders.
Exceeding the maximum prim / land Impact allowance and Objects outside of your solid parcel boundaries
that are “floating” in nature, or appear to be unattached or “out of place” may be returned to you if deemed inappropriately positioned or lost

– Traffic
An occasional party and events/attractions that create traffic are fine and encouraged – club activities are not

– Remember, it is a MODERATE region.
Discreet activities and displays of sexual nature are allowed only if they are not openly observable.

– Sounds, like everything else are expected to be in theme, natural and not disruptive.

– Mutual respect and courtesy.
Always be patient and respectful with whom ever you meet on this sim.
Our visitors may, and should be allowed to, have a stroll over all parts of the land.
We take often part in Hunts and create adventure quests that require them to search for something on the sim.
If they behave inadequate, remind them kindly of the TOS of Linden Labs.

– No script monsters.
We keep an eye on an excellent sim performance.
Any scripts running .1 or above are considered excessive and must be disabled (it is best to keep scripts under .05 in operation)

If you are interested in joining us at our land, please return a Notecard with the following information to either of us – we are happy to meet with you to negotiate landscaping and other conditions.

37921510352_3b8bc6f400_b

Start : 4th November 2017
End :  TBA

There are rumors about a giant treasure of dwarven origin hidden under Dandelion Daydreams Factory. What ever your motivation is … be it greed, be it adventurousness, you want to claim this treasure!

…………………………………………
Start Hint : Listen to the Bard
…………………………………………

He has songs and a HUD for you.
Get the manual from the book and read it .
Really. If you don’t read it and mess up, there is no way for us to help you and you got to begin from start!
…………………………………………
Quest Part 1
…………………………………………

Explore the Sim surface. Find points of interest and “talk ” to the NPCs.
Most come with a marker stone that talks in their stead except for Ansgar.
The smexy guy is touchable – yay!

…………………………………………
Quest Part 2
…………………………………………

The underground. You find eventually the way into the depths of the land , where the dwarves live. Yessss the area is in sky. And its huge. And you will get lost. And no we cannot help you there, as we get lost too!

………………………………
Experience Tools
………………………………

There comes a moment when a pop up asks you to allow the experience.
To keep it short: you need to accept the experience to do our quest Quest.

………………………………
General hints
………………………………

– if you receive quest items that say ” wear me” – wear them.
– it is absolute required for you to do things in the correct order.
– YOU must trigger things on your own. Do not take advantage of things triggered by someone else or it may affect your game and causes you to get stuck at some part.

This means …if a door is already open , wait for it to close and open it on your own.

– click what ever is click-able.
– read, what ever hint is available.
– Watch chat for individual and public messages.
– zooming skills might be required.
– go close enough to a click-able item.
………………………………
Hunt hints
………………………………

You find hints while looking around, sitting on objects and clicking things like the Marker Stones. Better do not touch the dwarves. They really like to spam you with talking all about themselves..not any useful for your quest.

Helmet: No matter what, do wear your helmet all time in the mines
Lamp: Click it to turn on the light! It may help you to see better.
Pickaxe : You must ,absolute MUST, wear it and keep it attached once you received it !
………………………………
HUD
………………………………

HUD Manual
Attach the HUD
You can minimize and maximize the HUD – just click on the logo
You can at any time interrupt the hunt and come back later, should you need a break.
The HUD saves your progress.

………………………………
Help Chat
………………………………

Attention:
The Dandelion Daydreams Factory Quests are not all too easy.
In emergency , try the group chat :
secondlife:///app/group/5231f664-97bd-7a92-0169-9f4ba7fad806/about
(copy paste to main chat and click)

Hunters can and should help each other, and when we are around, we are happy to help, too! Be careful not to spoil. A lot of hunters enjoy a challenge!
When you give helpful additional hints, do it subtle and if you need to become more precise, keep it to private IM 🙂
Thank you.

And then there are pixies …. nasty beasts, but sometimes really helpful.

………………………………
Hunt Etiquette
………………………………

. Remove all unnecessary scripts / huds / prims for minimal lag for everyone.
. If you have to afk or park for any reason without moving, do so by removing your avatar a bit to the side or find a place where you can sit or lay.
. Use Gestures with sound sparely – don’t be an annoyance for sensitive ears.
. If for any reason you don’t like the quest or prizes … just move on. Do not make a fool of yourself by complaining or badmouthing.  It may not be your taste, but can be pleasant to others.

………………………………
Cheating
………………………………

Ah well, if you absolutely do have to do that, we cannot stop you. Just keep it to yourself
Besides that – cheating might help you in some parts, but not in all.
