Matt and Rai came up Saturday afternoon. We spent the evening goofing off and watching Aryntha quiz folks on Second Life to determine their “’leet haxor” levels. It was pretty funny actually.
Sunday we were going to go and do another phone trip to some sites located up here in the mountains but once again nature showed us that Climate is what you expect and Weather is what you get… We got up Sunday morning to a very pretty snow fall, but this also meant that we weren’t going anywhere and that Aryntha and Rai needed to head back down the mountain before the roads got bad.
I spent the rest of the day modeling stuff for my avatar in Second Life; Aelfyre Twilight.
Here’s a picture of how he appears right now…
Of course it was night time on the server when I took the picture, so everything is dark, but you get the idea.
I’m currently working on his tail-swish, blinks, a horn glow, and other effects which have to be scripted, but so far I’m pretty happy with the Second Life system and I think my avatar looks pretty spiffy. 🙂
I guess I have to recommend SL to folks at this point. The people online are of a fairly high caliber overall and it’s been a pretty cool experience so far. Besides, you can get involved for a one time fee of $10… Cheap!
