Depths of Lake Ushindi - A Tribute to Lady Crimson

It has been a sad week for the gorean community in Second Life. The passing of Chrissie Crimson has affected not only her family at the Black Pearls but also several dozens of players that knew and played with Chrissie over the years. Back when the Rebel Reivers made its presence in GE, Chrissie and the Black Pearls supported and helped our group grow. We shared endless hours of good role-play and combat. I will never forget the fun times we had together. My heart aches for her real and second life family. 

To me, Lady Crimson’s avatar always reminded me of a mermaid. Her beautiful long blonde hair often stood out from the crowds of raiders and her passionate, polite, and respectful role-play was one of a kind. For that, this post will be my tribute to Chrissie. I also prepared an obituary which will be saved in the archives of The Good Gorean blog for the family and friends of Chrissie. If you would like a copy inworld, just message me.

"Lake Ushindi is a large lake in the jungles. "Ushindi" is a word in the inland dialect, not in Gorean, and it means "victory." It received its name for some victory, over two hundred years ago, on its shores. The name of the tiny kingdom or ubarate that won that victory is unknown. This lake is drained by two rivers, the Kamba and Nyoka. To the west of Lake Ushindi are floodlands, marshes and bogs. Much of their water drains into this lake. Further east, past the marshes and bogs, is Lake Ngao. Shaba, a Scribe and Cartographer, was the first civilized man to circumnavigate Lake Ushindi. In certain areas of Lake Ushindi that are frequented by vicious tharlarion there are high poles without platforms. Certain criminals may be rowed out to these poles and left there, clinging to them for their very lives. The black Ubar, Bila Huruma, uses these poles to decrease crime within his ubarate."
