Wow, so its almost Christmas! Time has flown by quickly this year. I have had many personal changes; some sad, some exciting.
Phantom Rose, too, has had many changes this year; some sad, some exciting.
On the sad side, I made a very difficult decision to leave Inworldz, closing up all my stores and my sims. And then of course this year Inworldz closed. On the exciting side, I expanded Phantom Rose into several other grids!
“So exactly what the heck have you been doing for Phantom Rose, these days Lannorra?” you ask. Not as much as I would like to, is my reply. LOL.
So here is a summary of where I am and what projects I am working on:
Great Canadian Grid
The Great Canadian Grid is my flagship location.
Phantom Rose with a subtle steampunk flair!
I added a freebie store at the Boutiques at the Square! There you will find many customized freebies for your holiday decorating. You will recognize the bones of these items mostly from the Linda Kellie collection, that I have re-textured, colored, added animations and otherwise made a bit unique.
I will be adding some 24/7 quests for visitors to earn some unique prizes.
Although not new, I want to remind you that Phantom Mists is open and is the official home of Mermaids of the Mists! It has a full sim of underwater delights for Mermaids, Mer folk and Divers to explore! Marine life, coral reefs, ship wrecks, Mermaid Dance pavilion with an original Mer dance animation that I made and more!
3rd Rock Grid
3rd Rock Grid Phantom Rose Egyptian Adventure!
I am almost done with the scripting for the characters needed for the Interactive aspects for this sim. The Case of the Missing Mummy, has a collection of NPC, mesh and cutout people that guests are able to “talk” to. Each character will have valuable information about the mystery that could lead a guest to finding the Missing Mummy and winning a trophy and medallion. The characters each have their own personalities, with various levels of helpfullness. Some give up their clues easily, others will be evasive and annoying! Perserverence is the key.
While the mystery is not completed and implemented yet, the sim can still be visited. There are balloon and camel rides, and many sites to discover. The only build not completed is the Lotus Rose Palace, which needs work on the inside. Due to RL issues, (my parents illnesses/passing and a physical move), I have been running behind my original time table. But I do hope to have the Mystery up and running in the first quarter of 2019.
Phantom Rose at Digiworldz!
Um, well… nothing. My tentative plans are to make a 1920’s, Great Gatsby style Phantom Rose. At this point, all I have done is the Logo. LOL. So many projects… so little time. 🙂
Right now my PR var is a sandbox, where I work on small projects. But as I finish projects that are in progress now, I hope to free up time to start on a new version of Phantom Rose.
My work at Discovery Grid is not about Phantom Rose. Long before I conceived the idea for Phantom Rose, I had a castle named Dragons Heart.
So at Discovery my land is Dragons Heart and I have been puttering around making a castle and Dragon’s Lair, etc. Its an 8×8 var, which is HUGE. I had no idea how large til I got it and realized just how big that is! I have to teleport around the var as its too big to just fly. However, it gives a ton of water space for boating and lots of area between builds.
Well, I have been working on the Medieval like Village called South Port. It’s coming along and been fun. I am mainly using freebies that I customize and some things I buy. Low stress and comes together more quickly.
The Castle is mostly done and the Dragon’s Lair is impressively sized! I do not have a TP system in yet, but feel free to stop by and see what I have been doing.
I hope to get the 3RG Mystery up and running this winter. I have some other very interesting things in the works, but it’s too soon to talk about them. But there is a big news thing coming… hehe. You will just have to keep checking my website at: www.phantomrose.com and my blog to see what I’ve got up my sleeve. 🙂
Thank you to all my friends and those who are interested in my work and Phantom Rose. My website will be reaching a milestone anniversary of 12 YEARS in 2019! Phantom Rose in Second Life opened its doors to my first renters in July 2007. It has been my pleasure to share my creative vision with you all.
Wishing you all a Happy and Joyous New Year!
