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.

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.

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.

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

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:

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

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!)

The Perfect Setting – Beck Howard’s Landscaping at the Dark Fantasy RP HUB

Dark Fantasy Role Play Hub

dark fantasy full view3

For role play, atmosphere is everything.  I was fortunate that a friend of mine, Beck Howard, was available to help create the foundations needed to make Dark Fantasy so special.  The above picture helps to illustrate what I mean.  I gave Beck my “vision” in words,   “I picture a spooky mansion up on a hill. And I need to build a Graveyard and Swamp.  There needs to be a natural flow.”

From those minimal words, Beck created a very natural rise from my Graveyard and then back down.  As my thoughts came together on what would be the Interactive Elements for the HUB, Beck honed in on each area.  She used such creativity in “sculpting” the land.  Terraforming is an art in Virtual worlds.  An Beck is an artist of great talent.

Since I had been brought in due to my sim, Phantom Rose, who’s Graveyard and Swamp had those dark elements needed for this genre, I created the HUB’s Graveyard and Swamp with some similar elements.  Beck managed to make a nice cohesive design plan around them.  We collaborated on many aspects, not just the landscaping.

She also helped me finalize my design on the Mansion and helped decorate as well.

I love the very dark gothic touches she added to the decorations!

She also created a small pond area.

This next picture is one of my favorites snapshots I took.  Its extremely real life looking!

I took this picture of the stream I insisted we needed.  I love the moonlight glistening off of the water

This is a picture of the Wolf Grove (entrance to the Lycan interactive) in progress.  Although not completed, you can see how natural the setting is, with the trees and slight rise, that gives the landscape interest.

We have almost completed the Project.  It has been a labor of love; both of Role Play and of Inworldz.  I have been so lucky to have Beck and Rath join my team.  We all brought our strengths to this effort and it was truly a wonderful experience for me.

The Inworldz Role Play HUB goes live very soon.  I hope you all will stop by and see what we all have created to promote Role play at Inworldz!

The Devil is in the Details – Dark Fantasy Hub @ Inworldz

Yikes!

The Demon subgenre at the Dark Fantasy Genre Role Play Hub, is really impressive.  The main build is by Rathmeous Dagger of The Realm of Vondur at Inworldz.  Rath has made an incredibly evocative area to introduce new and experienced Role Players (RPers) to Demons.

You can see the intricacies of Rath’s build.  I added some great sound and a fun interactive task.  I won’t ruin the suspense by telling you the task that must be performed.  I also had a lot of fun creating the Guide:

Follow her instructions and you will receive your Amulet of Safety!

Fail and you may find yourself stuck in Hades for a long time…  MUAHAHAHAHA!

Thanks again to Rath for his great builds.

My next blog post will be on the fabulous work Beck Howard contributed to the landscaping of Dark Fantasy!

The Inworldz Role Play Hub is scheduled to go live December 15th.

Be sure to keep watch for this exciting addition to the grid!

Dark Fantasy HUB @ Inworldz – The Drow Are Coming!

Drow1

Drow Warrior

This week I want to give you a sneak peek of the Drow area of Dark Fantasy.  Built by Rathmeous Dagger, the Drow area is a great immersive  look at this elusive creature!  Rath has wonderfully depicted the subterranean caverns in which they dwell.

Drow2

I am working now on a fun and scary interactive Role Play for those visiting this portion of the Dark Fantasy HUB.

I won’t spoil the surprises by explaining here.  You will just have to visit the HUB when it opens to find out!

My thanks to Rathmeous Dagger for being a great creative collaborator and all his hard work to bring the Drow to our Dark Fantasy HUB!
