Although I am still not able to get back to my second life, I have been hearing vague rumours via email and IM’s that all is not well with the virtual world.
It seems that Everwind has been going through a crisis.
The King and Queen of the realm (the sim owners) have split up, and the King has taken half the world away with him!
Its yet another thing which underlines how unreal it all is, and fragility of the place. That a King can leave his kingdom, and actually take it with him, mountains, rivers, buildings, the lot... It takes a bit of getting used to.
I had just begun to get a real feel for the place, to find a role for Wren and begin to think on how to forge out a permanent place, and now..??
I guess the whole of second life is like that, dynamic, changing, creative and destructive at the same time, that's what makes it unique.
Its like the people who make it, like the thoughts in their head, a virtual representation of their dreams, fantasies and in some cases nightmares. Its unlike anything I've ever come across, and that's what intrigues me.
Hopefully Everwind will continue, and by the time I return things will have settled down.
If not then I guess I can go find someone else's dreams to wander around in.
Don't worry I’ll tread softly!
