The Best of Second Life™

Where will you teleport to today?

Silverleaf – Realms of Aledar

This is another place I just happened across on my travels. Now, primarily this sim is a roleplay and combat sim. However they are happy for visitors to wander around providing you wear the tag provided at the landing point and dress appropriately. That’s not too much to ask now is it? Especially as a notecard with LMs to places you can get free attire is provided as well!

I’m not really a roleplayer myself, though I confess to really loving the Gorean and Medieval styled roleplaying sims for their architecture and landscaping. This one is very, very well put together. It’s low traffic and I had personally never heard of it before teleporting in. But I imagine the reason it is low traffic is the sheer volume of sims of this nature out there now. With so much competition and saturation it’s a wonder any of them ever get visits. This is one that thoroughly hope works out though, as it really is marvellously well put together.

Medieval Style Village

The sim is Silverleaf and the Realms of Aledar parcel consumes 26000sqm of this and professes to offer fantasy roleplay. There is a primarily medieval feel to the sim with some quirky steampunk elements. The owner of the area here is the Silverleaf group, the owners of which are (as far as I can tell) Asytra Minogue, Ariel Liveoak, Akiko Sakai and Aerith Fhang. Much of the building, including the wonderfully homely tavern, is done by Asytra and Akiko, which is great to see. I do enjoy seeing places where the owners have played their part in creating some of the buildings as opposed to buying absolutely everything in.

Anyway, there are vendors around from which you can buy merchandise and also rentals there too. Though, as far as I can tell the focus of the sim is community building and roleplay. It’s a beautiful place to explore or hangout and their friendly approach to non-roleplaying visitors is refreshing. It’s another one of the most beautiful places to visit in Second Life™ and for those interested in fantasy roleplay in Second Life, this could be a very good place to start. It seems they’re very much interested in having new people join their community here, paticularly if you’re something a little different to the elves, pirates, druids etc. The story of Aledar is offered to you upon arrival if you wish to take part in the fantasy RPG element of it. There is also a free combat system available as well as a notecard offering landmarks to places you can get free attire that will fit you in perfectly. So it really is possible to get going with the roleplay at no cost whatsoever.

All in all it seems like a community that is still very much getting started. Though, that means it could be the best time to get involved for any keen roleplayers! Whether you wish to roleplay or not, however, this is a great sim to visit for anyone with an appreciation of that medieval style of island.
