Phantom Rose joins The Great Inworldz Discovery Tour

discovery-tour-sign_001

I am pleased to announce that Phantom Rose estates has joined the The Great Inworldz Discovery Tour!  This tour has 22 sim stops on the latest map.  Phantom Isles is stop #4.  Each stop lets you disembark and explore the area.  Then you simply click the boat rezzer to continue on your way!

 

great-inwz-discovery-tour_010

I have set our stop up at the big island in Phantom Isles.  There are two docks.

The first dock has the Tour’s official temp rezz boat, graciously provided by Bridget Jennings.  This boat takes a captain and 2 passengers.  First click the sign on the beach if you are starting the Tour from Phantom Isles.  Then simply click the box on the dock, to rezz your boat and receive instructions on how to use it.

The second dock is for anyone using their own boat and want to dock and explore.  The Port of Phantom Rose (2 sims away) also has a rezz area for sailors to put in their own boats.

estate-block-mapHere is a simple block map of the estate layout.  The tour will take you to Phantom Isles.  If you sail there (vs TP) you will come into the estate from the Iz’s Oceans.  Phantom Mists is the first sim and has extensive underwater development, perfect for Mer folk and divers.  You can either enter the Port of Phantom Rose and sail thru Phantom Nights or you can choose to sail the open waters of Phantom Dreams, past Pirate Cove and into Phantom Nights to reach Phantom Isles.  Phantom Rose is my flagship sim.

pr

There you will find the Phantom Rose Opera House, The Ruins, The Vieux Carre, Serenity Beach Tai chi, Rock the Dock, rental homes and much more.

I hope you will take a tour thru the extensive sailing sims available at Inworldz and that you will choose to visit Phantom Island at the Phantom Rose estates!

Phantom Rose Inworldz Lewt System

starter area_001

Months ago, I mentioned that I had invested in the Lewt System (by Goblin Wares).  This product allows a creator to totally customize a Role Play (RP) Quest/Craft system.  It includes the ability to add a game economy with Merchants along with the items you put out for guests/members to collect and craft.

Its a complex, yet easy to use system for the creator.  It requires a lot of thought and planning.  You need the items, recipes of ingredients needed to craft these items, “nodes” that allow participants to gather the resources needed, and crafting stations used to make each item.

Whew!  Yes it is a lot of work, but it has been fun.  I wanted to offer guests and group members some RP activity 24/7, where the time zones didn’t matter, nor did having anyone else with you.  Lewt can be done alone or with friends.

lewt welcome_001

You must be a member of the Dark Nights RP group.  It is free to join.  Once you have done that, you will be able to use the portal up to the members only area.  On the first level you will find a teleporter that has the Lewt area destination.  Taking the TP lands you here at the Lewt welcome center.  There you will find information, examples of some of the advanced lewt items, a note card giver that gives a complete list of recipes available and the upgraded Lewt Magic containers for sale.

You will see a book on the shelf that you will click to receive your starter kit.  This contains a free basic pouch.  It is not necessary to upgrade, but Magic ones are quite special.

magic containers_001

Upgraded Magic Containers for Purchase

 Your starter kit will also contain free tools to wear when crafting and beginner recipes to walk you through the process.  You are given Overview, Instructions and Advanced Lewt Note cards.  You can also take the note card with the complete list of recipes to date.  I recently added a brand new item, Voodoo Skull Staff.  And remember, there is NO cost to participate.  The resources are all there to find and once you get them all, you can make the item for free.

I put a lot of great details and high quality textures on them.

So, now you ask… How do we get this great Lewt, Lannorra?  All you do is find the Lewt resources that are placed around the estate and harvest them.

resources_001

Here is a picture of a Ravenwood Tree, with two raven nests.

resources_002

Here are two Metal Mines.  You will find multiple resource nodes.  This is because once a resource is harvested, it disappears and goes dormant for a period of time, in order to keep people from “camping” a resource.  Once that one is gone, you need to go find others to complete your list of ingredients.

cloth resource node_001

This is a basket of cloth that you can search for just the upholstery you would like for your beautiful carved chair:

examples of carved table and chairs_001

Advanced recipe items.  You must find the recipe to make these.  Hint, check around the Lewt area for these.

more crafting stations_002

This is what the recipe scrolls look like… when you see one click it!!  Collect all you can find so you can make more great Lewt!

 If you are wearing your pouch or magic container, you can gather the resources and they will be used when you craft the item at the end.  Once you have resources it is often necessary to use several crafting stations.  For example, you collect Ravenwood logs, but will need to craft them into planks to use to make your item.  In that case you will need the wood sawing crafting station:

crafting stations_001

For now all the crafting stations you need are at the Lewt Starter area.

crafting stations_002

However, soon there will be crafting stations in other areas.  I try to make things logical.  So if you are looking for a recipe for a Demon Table, I hope you will think to look at the Demon area for that and some resources.

I hope I have whetted your appetite and you will drop by and try out the system.  I will add new items as time allows.  I also still have two hunts that are offered 24/7 also.

Vampire Blood Hunt (gather blood drops) and the Demonizer Hunt (harvest lost souls of ghosts).  Quest information is available at the Dark Nights Welcome area and the first floor of Bon Temps Mansion, which also has examples of all the prizes you can win if you complete the hunts.

(PS.  I am now working on Merfolk Lewt, stay tuned for more on that!)

After over 8 years of continuous operation, it saddens me to announce that Phantom Rose in Second Life will be closing down in December.

Opera house xmas_001

The Phantom Rose Opera House was one of the first of its kind that opened in Second Life, hosting many new artists both in Opera and other types of performances. My website, http://www.phantomrose.com has some videos and many photos.

Phantom Rose winter

Due to the much greater cost of Second Life, I have finally “hit the wall” financially and I can no longer justify trying to pay such a large amount of money here, when at a more reasonable rate I have more prims, more land and more creative opportunities at Inworldz where I have also been set up since 2010. You may have seen some of my posts about it. Last year, I split my website into either SL or Inworldz on the splash page and my blog serves both grids.

Opera house xmas_010

It’s sad to have to close Phantom Rose SL. For over 8 years it has been my home, my creative muse, a wellspring of numerous friendships and the place of so many great memories!

swan lake winter

I want to give all of us one last Christmas season at Phantom Rose SL. To that end, we will be doing a 12 days of Christmas event bonanza!   I hope many of you will take the time to come say goodbye to Phantom Rose SL!

I will be kicking off the celebration on Dec 1st with a fan favorite:   A Trans-Siberian Christmas music Lightshow! Check out our calendar on the website for all the events, concluding with a Snow Flake Ball at the Opera House on the 12th. I have also designed a commemorative Phantom Rose ornament that I will be giving out as a free goodbye gift to all our visitors. I will be closing Phantom Rose on 12/27/15.

It has been a joy to offer you my creative vision. And the many kind words of encouragement from so many of you, have meant so much to me!

Phantom Rose lives on at InWorldz – 5 sims of my creations and more immersive than ever. Stop by and see what I’ve been up to.

Phantom Rose – Inworldz Turns 3 years old!

OH2_001

Phantom Rose Opera House at Inworldz

This August is the 3rd Birthday for Phantom Rose at Inworldz!   Not only does the sim turn 3 years old, but I just underwent a huge conversion from a full sim to the new 2×2, Quad sims.  So now the estate consists of Phantom Rose, Phantom Mists, Phantom Nights, Phantom Dreams and a scenic, Phantom Isles.  I have been working more than a month to redesign the spaces and even out the primage.  But before I tell you about the conversion, let me give you a little history.

I have long felt that competition is a good thing for products.  And I have lent my support to many of the new grids that started to crop up along side Second Life.  I immediately like Inworldz more than any of the others.  The founders seemed more responsive, they strove to give transparency and legitimacy to their grid and they were further along than others I visited.

I rented land to begin with.  I took time to look around and visit sims and shops.  I liked what I saw.  I told people at the time that I considered my time at Inworldz like a “cottage by the lake”.  A place to visit and have fun.  Not my home, but definitely a vacation home.  Over the time, I decided to get a sim; the pricing was really good and the prims plentiful.  I played around… for long time I was a woodland fairy.  It was a lot of fun and no stress.

Three years ago, I realized that I wanted to expand my Phantom Rose empire and Inworldz was the right place, so I changed the name of my sim to Phantom Rose and started redesigning.  In Second Life, my sim is gothic castles, but here in Inworldz I wanted to do something different, so I decided to concentrate on New Orleans and the bayou.  I felt they gave that decadent, fading beauty that makes a great backdrop for my “gothic romance” theme.  While Inworldz Phantom Rose is not the same as Second Life Phantom Rose, they do share similar elements.

In both grids there is a spooky Graveyard.  Here is a picture of one part of the Inworldz graveyard.

They both have a ballroom called “The Ruins”.  At Inworldz, the Ruins is an old mansion.

Snapshot _ Phantom Rose , Phantom Rose (159, 95, 51)

And of course, both grids have the Opera House!  I built the Phantom Rose Opera House at Inworldz with inspiration from a real antebellum mansion, Longwood.

The new conversion has given me much more space, although not more prims.  This required some big changes to Phantom Rose.  I have moved the Dark Nights Role Play area to Phantom Nights sim.

dark nights_002

It now has a larger surface play area and still has the upper members only levels.

dark nights_008

dark nights_007

I have added the Lewt system quests and also two other 24/7 quests with prizes to keep you busy!  I will do a blog post on the Lewt system at a later date.

I also added some new rental homes

I hope you will drop by and visit this month to help us celebrate.   The Phantom Rose Estates is part of the Magellan Sea Community and has access to the Iz’s Oceans.  Many of my Magellan neighbors have awesome sims and its really worth coming out and exploring our area.  Hope to see you there!

Warmest Regards,
