Where Have You Been?: Two Sides of October

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, which sug­gests things to do and places to vis­it around the Sec­ond Life Grid, we approach the month of Octo­ber in two dif­fer­ent ways: The Bri­ar Woods present a pleas­ant Autum­nal scene, while the Ride of Doom lends a Hal­lowe’en-ish feel­ing to the pro­ceed­ings. Both are well worth a visit!

We also sug­gest a cou­ple of oth­er venues that might be worth your perusal.

This show airs on Octo­ber 25 and 28, plus Nov 1 and 4, at 12 noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific.

Where Have You Been? S02E20: SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik dis­cuss the SL Top Haunt­ed Places Tour & Hunt — a unique list of Hal­lowe’en loca­tions and events in Sec­ond Life.

The show will be broad­cast on Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT (8pm and mid­night in the UK), until the end of October.

Where Have You Been? S02E19: Rosehaven Caverns

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik vis­it the Rose­haven Cav­erns — a new devel­op­ment that enables you to nav­i­gate around the estate under­ground! The show goes out Sept 28, and Oct 1, 5 and 8, at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT; 8pm and mid­night in the UK.

The sys­tem is grow­ing every day and each of the caves are built by dif­fer­ent denizens of the realm, mak­ing this a huge col­lab­o­ra­tive expe­ri­ence to explore and get lost in.  There’s a sub­way entrance in Lau­danum lead­ing to the Under­ground, a mine shaft out­side a goth­ic cas­tle on the oth­er end of the realm lead­ing into the tun­nels, not to men­tion a hand­ful of secret pirate tun­nels. Each res­i­dent par­tic­i­pat­ing adds their own style and imag­i­na­tion to their design and then con­nects to the nexus.

Where Have You Been S02E17: Susan’s Diary


In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik make a pre-Hal­lowe’en vis­it to “Susan’s Diary”, at Delacruz Park, owned by Ser­gio Delacrus, an Ital­ian builder and pro­gram­mer who works as a free­lance VR Expe­ri­ence cre­ator, 3D mod­el­er and tex­ture artist.

Not only has he cre­at­ed prod­ucts and expe­ri­ences in Sec­ond Life, but he has done a sig­nif­i­cant amount of work in Sansar as well. His expe­ri­ence, “Susan’s Diary”, in Sec­ond Life involves a miss­ing child: to solve the mys­tery of Susan’s dis­ap­pear­ance involves a HUD-based game, hunt­ing for clues, and find­ing the pages of Susan’s diary to unlock the mys­tery of her fate. There’s also an asso­ci­at­ed YouTube chan­nel. It makes for an excel­lent pre-Hal­lowe’en entertainment.

“Susan’s Diary” is part of a larg­er games park with flight rides, roller coast­er, boats, hang glid­ers, bungee jump­ing, a sci-fi area, and a fly­ing drag­on — all free to explore. The tele­port to “Susan’s Diary” in Delacruz Park is right by the main land­ing area.

The episode pre­mieres on August 31st and runs on Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day at noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time (8pm and mid­night in the UK) until Sep­tem­ber 10.
