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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 moved Pirate Cove to Phantom Dreams and the Dark Nights bayou is just over the sim line from the Vieux Carre.

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!

Phantom Rose Inworldz – Magellan Sea Community

Phantom Rose is a proud member of the Inworldz Magellan Sea Community.  I was accepted as a member and moved Phantom Rose to a space in the Southern Magellan area several years ago and have been very glad to become a participating member of this wonderful community.

This past year I have been honored to be asked to serve Magellan more formally as its latest Community Liaison Officer and to contribute some articles to their Blog.   I have already posted two articles; one a administrative “catch up” blog to bring members up to date with the latest committee information and just today, an update on the state of sailing for Inworldz.

I will be re-posting these articles to this blog also.  I hope you will find these posts interesting!
