In Other News: A Magnificent Expedition...

Here's a great read (or series of reads) for all you SL exploring fans - a volcano (semi-affectionately nicknamed Phillip) has reared its smoking head and spouting maw above the waves off the coast of Caledon. A group of intrepid explorers have launched a scientific (and fame/bounty/thrill hungry) expedition to it's shores. You can read more over on Baron Bardhaven's blog here, as well as keeping abreast of the latest reports on Darkling Rose's blog here.

p.s. A big thanks to Darkling Rose for sending me the main link for the interactive adventure - follow it all here!

Hello Miss Rose - it's my pleasure to get the word out on your wonderful expedition - I shall add the main link to the post :)

Yours in Travel. And a Safety Pith!

Thank you for noting the expedition Sir.

For me the exciting thing is that there are 8 (likely 9 when some plot twists occur soon) separate writers each with their own unique style and viewpoint creating this story together, publishing their interlinked stories across 8 different blogs.

On top of being a ripping good yarn thus far (in my never truly humble opinion) it is also an experiment in collaborative fiction and ways to make Roleplay work more smoothly in SL.

Thank you again for your support.

I agree - it's a cracking idea! I'm really enjoying reading all the various versions of the same events and having run a pretty successful Cthulhu based Play-by-Email game in the past, I know just how hard, and how rewarding, it is co-ordinating and stitching together a collaborative text RP experience.
