It’s that time of year again — when ghoulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night can be found all over the grid. And here, at Prim Perfect, we’ve been chasing after them assiduously to bring you news of the regions that will send the most delicious of shivers down your spine.
Our Region of the Month is the Lovecraft-inspired sim of Innsmouth — a heart-stopping recreation of that lost New England harbour town. Beq Janus has been exploring there; I have talked to the creators of this remarkable region; while Java Jetcity has picked out ten places that you will surely want to visit, especially if you are doing our Halloween Quest.
To complete the Halloween Quest you will need to find thirty numbered pumpkins, which will lead one lucky person to win L$5,000!
Ten of the tokens are hidden in the ten special places in Innsmouth described in Java Jetcity’s article, and ten more are hidden in the ten Halloween places that Honour McMillan has written about… while no fewer than ten tokens are hidden in the pages of this magazine. For details on how to find them, see Page 10.
We’ve also visited Eliza Wierwight of the beautiful Patron store to see her glorious new creation of a home, and Ethan Westland shares all the news about this and about Eliza.
There’s a look at mesh — a year after its introduction to the grid, how are designers working with it? What are the pains and pleasures?
Cain Maven tells us about his journey to become a mesh designer, while Beq Janus chats with several well-known creators who are taking those first few careful steps into building with mesh.
Winona Wiefel is on hand with Advice for Newcomers on making a pumpkin so your home will be decorated for the season. There’s more news about the most recent bargains from Spruce Up Your Space, as well as a feature article by Lacey Muircastle on the Homestuff initiative from the people behind Menstuff and Womenstuff.
There’s exciting news from our TV shows, Designing Worlds and Happy Hunting!, available on Treet TV. And there’s also news of our interactive media experience, The Blackened Mirror — part TV show, part game!
Of course we have free Prim Perfect gifts for you. Gifts are only available in Second Life through our inworld Intellibook version, but look below to discover how you can get your inworld copy too. Amongst the gifts you will find the tokens that will help you win the Quest.
Our team of talented photographers, led by Judith Lefevre, Java Jetcity, Winona Wiefel, Wildstar Beaumont, and Honour McMillan bring you some of the most artistic eye candy from across the metaverse.
All this with News From the Grid and more!
