Elle in InWorldz: Raglan Shire!!

OhmyGlob! I found Raglan Shire in InWorldz! w00tw00t!! Extrovirtual has a branch there for tiny avatars, so of course, I was able to be my black bunneh self. Bought a gypsy outfit from Teal. There are shops and the Museum and Welcome Center and lots to see, but the most incredible thing about it is...the Great Tree!!!! Grown from a seed of the Great Tree Steve in SL, InWorldz's Great Tree makes Steve look like a sapling. I couldn't even fit it into a pic. It is HUMONGULOUS.

In SL, we all take on different personas as we feel they fit us. For the longest, mine has been a steampunk/NeoVictorian explorer. While I am still very much a steampunk in my heart, my experience now feels very different. I feel like the wanderer I was when I first came inworld.

I was asked "Oh, you are a gypsy?" Well, yes. That seems to really fit me now more than anything else. I parked my wagon behind the post office. I am enjoying the gorgeous water and bridge views, but it's like having an itch, this wanderlust...time to explore.

Elle in InWorldz: First Day!

I thought I would finally check out InWorldz. Not only was I pleasantly surprised, but found myself wondering "Why aren't more people using this grid?" It felt stable, looked good, and felt like SL to me. The starter avatars were not bad at all. The one I chose wasn't too far off from my normal one anyway. Normally I take a welcome center pic, but forgot. When I arrived, I felt lucky that I was already grid-familiar, so I didn't need help with the UI or what to do. If I was brand-new, I think I would've been very confused. A mentor was there, but I wasn't sure if there was a person behind the avatar or not. They didn't interact with me beyond a greeting. So I hopped off the island ASAP and tried to get my looks more together. A lot of familiar creators are already there, so it wasn't too hard... 

It was actually in InWorldz that I recognized the "gypsy" persona fit me best. They actually have an active gypsy community in there that goes from sim to sim. InWorldz has a lot of potential for those who want to move/have an alternative to SL. Some aspects of it are rough in places and reminds me of SL back in the day in a good way, but trust me...it's not bad at all.
