Things a Noobie Should Know by Devlish Beeswing

Noobie Stuff.
There are things to buy, to wear, to use, and to build with, there are three conditions that apply to such things.
No Copy this means you cannot copy it, you only have that one version of it. If you give it to someone else you will no longer have one for your self!
No Mod This means it cannot be changed, its appearance is FIXED. So if it is not quite what you wanted don't buy it.
No Transfer This means this is yours and cannot be given to anyone else! You use it, store it, or destroy it!
If you put something down on the ground, it will probably end up in your lost and found folder sooner or later.
Do not keep making copies of things you will run out of room at the worst possible time!
Make Folders to keep frequently used items, like your current body and shape.
Learn how to move things around in the inventory, create special folders, clothes, footware and other categories. If I told you mine it would spoil all the fun of exploration.
Learn how to use the inventory search function. Try (Worn, then highlight an item then remove (Worn, see where you are in the inventory. Make notes of usefull things you don't do often. Learn how to edit things, so get a pose stand. Don't pick-up every free thing you see, you will fill your inventory quickly enough as it is!
Make a copy of your self BEFORE you edit your appearance!
Use the mini map and Map to find your way aroundeven consider walking (Joke).
Use the Search function to find Places, People and things that interest you.
Learn how to fly! Learn how to emote. Learn how to make friends and not piss people off! DON'T SHOUT!
Keep within the personality of the av that you have created!
And the most important words in S/L Help, Please & Thank You!

The Roissy/Blackthorne Creative Writing Group Meets Twice Each Week!

The Roissy/Blackthorne Creative Writing group meets in the Palais Brew, the coffee shop upstairs in the Palais Gallery on Wednesday at 5:00 PM (SL) and on Sunday at noon (SL).

Some people come with poems and prose to share. Some writing is about BDSM and some writing is about the everyday feelings of everyday people. Some come only to listen. Everyone is welcome.

We do not criticize. We share our thoughts and our feelings. We learn to know each other.

What follows is a poem from one of our members: Laika Karu

Cyanide Child

Hey Cyanide Child,

Who will you take tonight?

Will it be the one with the sweet-boy-grin and the devil-in-his-eye
or the other one
with the amazingly
soft and gentle... handshake (that took you by suprise -
he being such a tall man.)

Wondering what it would feel like
if he
touched you...
would you... melt?

Would you?
(like butter in his mouth)

Such a tragic thought honey,
to drown in your own bloodstream.
~Laika Karu

Laika uses words which tremble, to shock, to entice, to interest her reader. The spacing makes the ambiguity of the poem even more delicious.

Such poems as this one our group reads and disucusses and thinks aboutl.

Please join us.

Contact elizabeth weinberg for help and assistance.

BTW: The Roissy/Blackthorne poetry slam will be held at the end of June. Consider sharing your work for great prizes.
