Red Barn

What a sight – for this photoshoot, I had a great time visiting a stunning region called “Isles of Scotland.” Listed in the Photogenic Spots category on the Destination Guide, “Isles of Scotland” is truly a magical place with a beautiful landscape and a wonderful rustic, welcoming flair. This location was a perfect match to showcase this new release from Medieval World and a few gifts I picked up over the last few days. In addition, Medieval World recently released new accessories and clothing for male avatars: two complete outfits and leaf pauldrons in several colors are now available at Medieval World Mainstore and Marketplace.

Premium members are now able to set recurring events in the Upcoming Events tab available at secondlife.com. Premium users will be charged L$10 for listing a one-time event or L$50 for submitting an event that recurs up to 12 times. Basic members will be charges L$50 per event listing. Marketplace was also updated with a few more refined options to your search – “Limited Quantities” and “Demo Items” can now be excluded from your search options in Marketplace.




Starting today (Tuesday, Jan. 14), Microsoft is no longer providing support for Windows 7. The end of this era will also affect Second Life
®; future viewers will not be tested in this operative system and subsequently any bugs, glitches and system failures will not be fixed. Technical assistance and software updates will no longer be available and the system will become increasingly unstable - If you’re still running the decade-old operating system, it’s time to upgrade!

New York City Nights

We are a week into the New Year and many of us already started working on personal resolutions for 2020. I have to confess: I’m not the type of person that has the “New Year, New Me” mindset or takes the time to write down monthly goals. Instead, I’ll go with the flow and if a challenge crosses my path, I will tackle it, head-on. Being organized and planning ahead has been part of my personality but, the New Year’s always goes by without a single post-it; maybe is the alcohol? I raised a glass to 2019 and celebrated how great last year was to me.

My first post of 2020 is here and why not starting the year with something completely out of my comfort zone? We all know that urban merchandise is not often featured in The Good Gorean but, that doesn’t mean I won’t appreciate the fine things this side of Second Life
® has to offer. When I set my eyes on the recent releases of VoluptasVirtualis, Tentacio and The Forge, I knew it was time to go back to the streets of New York City and have steamed pork buns for dinner in Chinatown. After that, how about dancing the night away at The Box? Let’s face it – nothing can go wrong with this dress and this pair of boots.

Season of Change, Season of Snows

As the New Year approaches us with hopes anew, here is to wishing you one more year of success, happiness and prosperity. Not only have we looked back upon memories but we also focus on what improvements were implemented in Second Life® during 2019 but I question: is role-play still going strong in Second Life®? What has Linden Lab® reserved for us in 2020?

The popular Premium Linden Homes, Marketplace upgrades, cloud migration, Bakes on Mesh, improvements on script performance and other script-related issues were successfully completed by the Lab over the course of this year. On May 15, 2019, the Lab released their first batch of new homes and houseboats to premium users. The demand for these items was so high that the Lab promptly added more land to the Bellisseria continent to host more homes for their customers. On Monday, Dec. 16, Linden Lab® released a new line of Linden Homes. A total of 1600 Victorian Linden Homes in four styles are now available to Premium members in beautifully Victorian-themed landscaped regions. June of 2019 also brought us a reduction of the tiers for full and homestead private regions. Homestead private regions were reduced from $195 to $179/month and full regions from $249 to $229/month.


Premium fees also suffered several changes: the monthly subscription fee was increased from $9.50 to $11.99, the quarterly subscription from $22.50 to $32.97, and the annual fee was increased from $72 to $99. The Marketplace commission fee was also increased from 5% to 10% while the Marketplace Product Listing Enhancement fees were reduced by 10%. Across the web and the grid, many Second Life® residents were displeased with the recent changes; a group of residents released an online petition, suggesting better communication between Linden Lab® and residents to better understand the needs of each side and the possibility of negotiating Marketplace’s fee. This year was also marked by the introduction of Linden Lab’s® subsidiary company, Tilia Inc., as users were forced to share their personal information including their social security number to cash-out their $L balances.

YouTube series “Second Life’s Lab Gab with Xiola and Strawberry”, and the Second Life® Blogger Network are two other projects that came to life in 2019, but I now question if they are yet to survive 2020. On Wednesday, Dec.18, Xiola Linden announced she will be departing Linden Lab® in early January of 2020, halting the production of this most-loved series. The Blogger Network team continues to promote SL™-themed blogs however, with the departure of the community manager, I fear the feed might become repetitive or not receive proper updates. In addition, there is the potential of affecting SL™ social media channels. Although the marketing team does a wonderful job in interacting with the community in social media platforms, it should be also used to recruit new users by offering introductory rates, posting and sharing more often about community-related news, art and lifestyle, and how many wonderful role-play worlds we have outside of the mainstream Medieval genres.

Role-play is the best feature Second Life® has to offer and if this sounds biased, it’s because it is but, my opinion doesn’t make it a lesser truth. Here, you can be anything you want - from reincarnating Jesse James in Tombstone, AZ., or becoming a lone space-gunfighter like the Mandalorian, possibilities are endless. Second Life® has the right communities to enjoy an immersive role-play experience and create a storyline like no other. Although a few role-play genres like Gor have been decreasing in numbers, the majority of players migrate to other role-play worlds, maintaining their dedication and daily logins to this virtual world. The community has been stable over the years with many experienced role-players taking the role of guides and administrators behind the scenes to welcome friends and new users in this fun ride. Personally, I believe role-play in Second Life® is here to stay and last many years but we must promote this hidden gem properly and abundantly. When Marvel, DC Comics, Game of Thrones, and most recently the Witcher and Mandalorian dominates today’s social media and pop culture, we have one job – to show the world we have it all here and  much more.

In 2020, the Good Gorean (and the GE Maps) will continue to promote role-play in and outside of Gor, and keep you updated with community news – visitors are welcome to submit any role-play events to be published in this blog or request a sim review. I would be delighted to explore your role-play region and write about it.


Linden Lab® has many more projects lined up for 2020:
  • New Premium Plus subscription plan;
  • Ability to change first, last or both names for additional fee at an estimated value of $39.99 (more details to be released);
  • Environmental Enhancement Project (EEP) will introduce new inventory object for defining the environmental settings, up to 4 sky layers, parcel level control and more;
  • Several viewer updates such as improvements to texture managing and caching and 360° snapshots; 
  • Animesh enhancements;
  • Improvements to Marketplace interface with mobile-friendly layouts;
  • iOS Second Life® App for iPhones and iPads
   
   Are you ready for an amazing 2020?

"In the thinking of the Wagon Peoples it is called the Omen Year, though the Omen Year is actually a season, rather than a year, which occupies a part of two of their regular years, for the Wagon Peoples calculate the year from the Season of Snows to the Season of Snows; Turians, incidentally, figure the year from summer solstice to summer solstice; Goreans generally, on the other hand, figure the year from vernal equinox to vernal equinox, their new year beginning, like nature's, with the spring;..."

Happy Holidays from The Good Gorean

Preparations are underway for the most wonderful time of the year and we are just two sleeps away from Christmas Day. This year is ending on a cheerful note and it’s the perfect time to look back and prepare to write another beautiful story in 2020. My last post of 2019 will be published sometime next week and I’ve planned to cover a number of topics linked to The Good Gorean, GE Maps and the state of role-play in Second Life® but for now, let’s make memories.

Just like many of you, it’s time to take a break from the computer and focus on my real life family and friends. To my family and friends in Second Life, blog visitors, Flickr and social media followers: I hope all of you have a relaxing and wonderful festive season, and to The Good Gorean’s visitors and sponsors, best wishes for a happy holiday season and my sincere thanks for your loyalty and goodwill throughout the year. Without your engagement, your contributions, and your involvement with the GE Maps and this blog, I would not be blogging today and enjoying our role-play stories.

The gift of love. The gift of peace. The gift of happiness. May all these be yours at Christmas.
