27,151 Items Series

untitled

I’m not sure how many people think about this; that part of their SL is their possessions. Their items they bought made or were given. A lot of Bloggers know all about organization and I find we are all pretty anal about it. I admit I am now on a separate account but my old account was 5 years old it had more than 50 thousand plus items in the inventory I don’t remember. This is new, a new account and still I blog and still I’m Anal about how things are organized.

But I took a break from SL recently just a long break I didn’t know what to do I was angry at the drama I love sl for the rp, that’s why I use SL i just happened to become a blogger and creator. But now my break is over and I keep thinking RL I’m a minimalist but in SL I own 27,151 Items and I’m actually not sure what they all are. So I’m gonna go through each item with you, in between all of my sponsored blogs and explore what I have, and why I have it.

First we are going to start with what is Aki’s normal look what is the look I have and that’s the canvas every thing will be based with:

My SL sister pointed out recently that despite you know  the fact this character has been kicked into looking like this; tortured and her body physically altered. Oddly enough she looks like my SL sisters character more.

I wouldn’t call Omena (the character above) modest and that’s perfect for this mid summer gown; it is long and flows well it’s included with a handy colour hud and Paper Moon does do all mesh bodies apart from Aii’s.

Who is evil now…..

What if Snow White was the daughter of what corruption was? With black hair as black as a raven, and lips as red as blood? What would that mean for our fairy tales? We are not all Princesses….

Feature: *pm* Vintage Astronomy Rugs – Corvis @ The Coven

There are only 2 (3 if you count today) to get your butts down to the Coven and pick up Paper Moon’s earings of the rugs I have been vying for my whole Secondlife for. Astronomy rugs! I literally wiggled all over after the Fantasy Faire seeing these. I admit I lost a bit of Omph after the fair. It was a lot and a lot of conversations etc. I fell behind in blogging and I fell behind a lot everywhere.

Sometimes I want to remind people even in real life, just because it’s your favourite pattern and it’s called a ‘rug’ doesn’t mean it’s destined for the ground, darling if it’s your favourite get that on a table display it and be proud those who judge you for what you do with your rugs are those who are too afraid to make a statement.

SO whether you’re a statement maker like me, or you actually like rugs for a floor, go get yourself some Astronomy rugs to help your dreams anywhere in your second life.
Table: Jian – Conqueror’s War Table
Blood: + Hemomancer’s Aura (upper leg L) + {aii}
Flower: + Deception Flower Bloody + {egosumaii}
Chairs: *_*C-Outlet*_* Melie Chair

Also at The Coven is the *pm* Vintage Astronomy Rugs. 3 different rugs with vintage illustrations of 3 different constellations: Leo, Canus, & Corvis. Only 2 LI as rezzed. Adds a perfect sense of otherworldly charm to any home decor, or a touch of darkness to bring comfort to your dark dark souls.

 

Why I Relay

Snapshot_031

It might be hard to believe, but none of my immediate family on one side has never had cancer. That side of my family I never met and so I knew my grandparents died of a hearth malfunction and old age.

But on the other side my Grandmother had Breast Cancer that was the cause of her death, and my Grandfather had a tumor in his brain. I Was too young to really remember my grandmother on that side, she didn’t speak English and I didn’t speak her native tongue, what I knew was she made wonderful pastry, she loved to watch Xena and she used a lot of garlic in her cooking. My grandfather was another story he lasted longer and was actually murdered – the cancer tumor in his brain would have killed him, but no the care taker who thought he had a lot of money did. I knew my grandfather until I was thirteen. Around that age two years before I had been diagnosed with a deadly disease and a disability. I was told at a very young age that at 15 I was going to die.

By the way I didn’t. When forced with mortality in such a young age, it really alters your idea of life and death I never felt bad for my grandparents dying of cancer, and the term cancer in my own life grew to be very synonymous with my own disease. I wasn’t afraid anymore nor in Canada at least I didn’t pity anyone who had cancer. Cancer patients had a chance. I was just told I was going to die and I didn’t have a choice. I won’t tell anyone what I have but Death the chance of just not waking up one day is still very real.

My own mother went into Microbiology to study cancer and I grew up trying to oppose it. I was an academic rebel I didn’t want to do anything typical for a long time probably because death just is my best friend these days.

I’ve actually become a successful (not like money successful in anyway HAH!) successful Environmental Scientist. My supervisor calls my program “Soil Organic engineering.” we could call ourselves engineers some days. But we’re not anything like engineers, and the only thing we will save is lives before they get Cancer. I tried to go to medical school as my mother wanted me to. I did for 2 years I was in an intensive program and I found I wasn’t interested in the live body, and not recently dead bodies either. I quit and I moved on to the arts kid, and I didn’t do well there. And then I took up some environmental Sciences.

I  know how hard it is to be a researcher every day. It’s not sunshine and roses and it’s hard to get funding and companies want to get in on your work if you will have their opinion in the paper. People pay you off sometimes. OR your institution makes conditionals (I lived through this one recently). All in all I will not be curing Cancer.

What I can do is to support it, and perhaps it’s harsh that I’m not attempting to cure cancer because someone in my family died and mostly for scientific process, but we all have our own ways of doing things. Sometimes I think it’d be easier if I just suffered through anatomy, but I didn’t and it’d make much more sense in donating money to Relay than going back and wasting 40k to 80k trying to get my doctorate in medicine, only 1/8th of that usually goes to research (fun facts).

Maybe what I study will benefit cancer sometime I mean it could be. But I’m not wired to solve cancer. I’m wired to protect and rejuvenate soil from conventional farming.

That is why I relay.

I’ve been complaining forever to my best friends that I can’t play my favourite character since Ozryn closed. Granted Cendre was never in Ozryn, but I realized that I could do something with her when Sohma released this armor. I’ve been pestered to bring our Unseelie into game, but never had a reason to. The St. Monica Chest Armour can bring out your colours, or easily for those of you albino’s wash you out more. Comes with a HUD with  five colour designs associated with it! Play with your inner Fae, or your inner Art Attack with the St. Monica Chest Armour.

 

 

Mooncrest Tour – The Community, class time

Snapshot_156

It may seem like I’ve been dancing around Mooncrest without a sign of any other life forms, but it’s not. I’ve been taking photos in the wee hours of the night when everyone is already sleeping or gone to work. But I’m not innocent, I have spied on the others in this community, I’ve asked to take their pictures. And now I’d like to introduce you to a few.

I’ve been to a lot of ooc meetings before for ic reasons and for ooc discussion. I remember I used to go to a lot of them when I started rping on sl, and continued until the end of the ‘old’ days of roleplay sims and I learned things. I stopped going to them when the people leading the meetings were repeating information I already new, and the people leading/teaching were not teaching, they were just c/p notes taken by someone else, or they didn’t know how to ‘teach’.

The second day of my time on sim I was invited to the ooc healers class. I was hesitant a first, but I thought the only way I was going to get to know the community was to go to the community events. I’m glad I did. I learned more in Ashildr (mystybaker) ‘s first aid class for an ooc meeting about medieval first aid than I have in three years in SL Roleplay ooc classes.

Snapshot_005

Just a few of us in the first aid class

Of course that’s not to say sim combat classes are not somewhere you learn things, in fact if you can get into your sims combat class do it, combat is the place where you will likely screw up majorly if you don’t understand a sims combat system.

I won’t give up too many of the things that Ashildr offers in her classes because then you wouldn’t need to go, but a few points that I think the incoming possible community needs to know about the sim healers system itself.

Snapshot_007

Ashildr 

In class we reviewed two different aspects of healing and first aid, rp basics of first aid and healing for roleplay. And lastly details about each. I’ve left a lot out of her lesson below, simply because I think she does a better way of teaching, and I think any roleplayer should attend. Mooncrest is so fortunate to have such a good teacher with them. And so the two we reviewed :
►1) The divine side of healing
►2) the practical side of healing

It is important to understand that the different disciplines [cleric, shaman, druid, ranger medic, paladin..] will see injury and illness differently.(Ashildr, 2017)

1) Clerics, shamans, druids – will all say some sort of prayer/perform ceremony or ritual before and during healing. This is often times to call their deity, spirit, or elements to aid them, but its also thought to help cleanse space and bless the person before they begin to do practical healing.

2) We tend to stay away from magical potions (in RP) for healing. The reason is, we want people to RP together.

3) There is cause and reaction in play with healing.

4) Be familiar with realistic complications and realistic healing techniques.

All of these points are super important, and often now healers on sims rely on clerical healing, and forget the realms of realism within healing. I often too often see healers click their fingers and you’re healed. I’ve always since then resorted to playing characters that demand to be healed by a practical healer, because I love to see people to put together their knowledge of how to heal things naturally.

Snapshot_006

The class got to a point of questions so I pursued the  question that can make or break a sim sometimes.

[2017/03/10 17:50] Ashildr (mystybaker): Any questions on the divine side of healing?
[2017/03/10 17:50] Alva: maybe both divine and the first one
[2017/03/10 17:50] Alva : can any of the classes resurrect characters?- with or without assistance?
[2017/03/10 17:51] Cora Zeami: Good question

[2017/03/10 17:51] Ashildr (mystybaker): Healers have the ability to resurrect but that would fall under the “Major” spells in our rules. Let me pass that to you

[2017/03/10 17:51] Alva: okay good to know ^-^

[2017/03/10 17:51] Siocritter (siobhan.bauhaus): May I interject from an admin point of view? Whether a character or not can resurrect is very much a character by character thing. Some healers can, some can’t, and yes it would be a major working regardless. Also, not only those classed as healers have that ability necessarily.

[2017/03/10 17:53] Niccia Straaf: wouldn’t recommend someone like Fay raising you though… she’d probably steal your soul or some such lol

[2017/03/10 17:53] Siocritter (siobhan.bauhaus): Yes, read the fine print
[2017/03/10 17:53] Siocritter (siobhan.bauhaus): I would also advise, just like with healing, always check with the player via a quick IM
[2017/03/10 17:54] Siocritter (siobhan.bauhaus): some may not wish to be, for whatever reason, so it would simply not be successful if you tried
[2017/03/10 17:54] Siocritter (siobhan.bauhaus): and now *goes back to sitting quietly* I’m done hijacking your class 🙂

[2017/03/10 17:54] Ashildr (mystybaker): Also, there is some benefit to joining a guild and ICly learning to resurrect.. but that doesn’t mean someone unguilded can’t do so. We all have our spells and abilities but within a guild, it (using the term loosely) would involve some sort of team work – e.g. being mentored ICly

Sio (Admin extraordinaire)

I might mention above are two players (one is our admin) but two others were present I forgot to take a picture of Nicca, and Raz another player was there too, but she hid under her alpha simply because Raz is a big dragon, and would make you look at her leg or ass in the smaller than her classroom.
