About Alts, Part Deux

Faithful readers of this blog and mere bystanders who may have seen me in-world know that sometimes I’m a Furry (usually on Fursday or Caturday). Last night I was reminded that I have a full-time Furry Alt, though. Another avatar had a mesh body with a great “skin” that you’d typically find on a Furry and I dug out pictures of Delicate Quandray, the Furry alt that I share with my brother, to show off. Turns out I “outted” Del way back in March of 2011 in a post that showed all my alts.

It then occurred to me that I hadn’t logged her in for sometime. After digging out her password (which my brother had changed) I checked her Inventory and took a nice picture.

delicate-quandry-5-december-2016
She’s still a furry but it looks like my brother bought a neko-style skin for her, also snow leopard, but that was a long time ago. She hasn’t breathed the air of Second Life for about three years, it seems so I took her to Splash, one of the more scenic shops in Our World.

Here’s a run-down of the other alts mentioned in the original article, plus one and minus one.

xandah-ressident-5-december-2016

Xandah wasn’t in-world back in 2011 so she wasn’t listed, but she’s made a few appearances on this blog before now. In the last year I’ve updated her skin and bought a very nice full-body tattoo for her. Mostly she’s my dress-up doll. When I see clothes that just aren’t “me” but that I like, she gets them, particularly lovely items from Zaara.

Let’s keep the mystery about this alt going, though I will mention that she has a better (still free) skin from years ago, nicer hair, and was once partnered to my brother CC Columbo. She has few outfits, but she keeps wearing this one. I don’t know why.

usra-ostrich-5-december-2016

Usra Ostrich is still a mouse – Mousra – but still my twin at heart. It would cost a fortune to duplicate my look with her, though I still might do that some day. But she’s so cute now. It is a shame that Loco Pocos have gone away.

zyx-flux-5-december-2016

Zyx Flux is still my gardener. She’s doing a wonderful job at the Arboretum (despite the troubles with the Nevernever creeping through). Since 2011 I’ve filled out her backstory a bit. She’s still a pixy, but not a traditional one, since she’s part [redacted]. She was born blue but has since become brown thought she can still become midnight blue when she’s very angry or in “battle mode.” When she’s older (yes, she’s a child avie) she might be blue again like her cousin-sister-aunt, Zyx.

zyx-5-december-2016

Yes, that Zyx. She’s still blue, but darker. She has a few shades of darker blue and, like her cousin-sister-neice she is sometimes dark midnight blue. I’ve also grabbed a mesh body for her. About that relationship – Who really knows what relationships are in the Nevernever, but she adopts this form in our world when she pops in to supervise her relative, help with her education, or to clean up the kid’s magick messes. According to Zyx, the two don’t share a name. We just hear it that way.

uccello-poultry-5-december-2016_001

Which brings us back to me, Uccello Poultry (Display Name varies). I’m blue, too. Most of the time (NSFW) but I’m not related to Zyx or to Zyx. In the last 10 years I’ve tried to find a really nice blue skin, even trying to make my own, and playing with other colors, too. This is Second Life, after all. Do we all have to be “normal” human colors? I finally found a few and most of the time I am as you see me in the picture above. I am the ultimate alt of myself.

Or am I? NPChar Resident, not pictured, is an alt of mine, too, for when I need various characters for “things” and I still share male alt with my brother, too.

A pilgrimage of the prim in Second Life

The Poultry Report’s own intrepid explorer/reporter, Zyx Flux, filed a report on this topic a while back (see here).

Temple of the PrimTemple of the Prim

There are many places in Second Life from which legends and tales are sprung. As I recently noted, there is the famous Prim Rig of ANWR, itself linked to the deeper legends of Magellan Linden, Heterocera, Nova Albion, et al. Then there is the mysterious fairground at Pyri Peaks from whence Moles were said to have vanished (see here) and the equally mysterious Cape Ekim, involving Professor Linden (see here), to name but two more.

Another such place of mystery is the Temple of the Prim, located in Corsica. This strange site, ancient and perhaps hallowed, lies atop the south-east corner of the continent’s great rocky plateau, at a point where the naked rock thrusts outwards in a shoulder-like ridge. But to reach it requires no small amount of dedication, as to visit it properly requires something of a pilgrimage.

Moar Prims!

The Lab’s official announcement of the poorly kept secret some have called Primsmas – the 1.5x increase in a region’s given Land Impact (LI) allotment or “prim count” – distracted me at my Real Life job today as my mind thought of several scenarios for visualizing the increase.

perspective-on-prim-count

This doesn’t seem like a huge increase. Just 58 LI for the  “standard” 512m2 land plot we should all be familiar with, but think back to those days when your First Land, your Linden Home, or even a getaway parcel was was full and you felt like you needed more space. Fifty-eight prims. If you could have been given that boost, the one or two extra prims you scrimped and saved to get back seems like almost nothing.

And now you have that boost. Thank you, Linden Lab!

The Livingtree Trick or Treat Hunt

livingtree-halloween-2016

My friend Marianne McCann blogged about a Halloween event she is involved with and mentioned it on various social media so I thought “Let’s draw some traffic to my blog with it!” and asked her to send details to me.

Over the last year we’ve done a fair amount of updating to the island, including a full revision of the texture tutorial to reflect current texture standards in Second Life, and two refreshed forest areas. Plus, of course, all of our various store products!

With it being Hallowe’en time, we’ve decided to give you a little bit of a trick or treat hunt. You can find eight cauldrons spread through the island. You can see what they look like in the picture above. They’re all over the island, but none of them are too hard to spot.

All of the goods presented were made especially for this hunt, and are not currently available anywhere else inworld.

The cauldrons will be available until the end of the month, so don’t delay. We hope to see you on Livingtree (SLurl) soon!

If you aren’t familiar with Livingtree, the region is worth exploring even without the lure of seasonal prizes. It is home to Marianne’s store, Pygar Bu’s shop, and the grid-wide famous tutorials by Robin Sojourner Wood plus her store, too. The scenery is seasonal so visiting several times a year means you’ll regularly find new vistas and fun activities.

Real Me. Digital Life. Virtual Spaces. Second Life.
