In which I am outfitted for duty and patrol the colony

My next priority after furnishing my home was to get myself properly outfitted for my duties as a Gardai.  A quick bit of  scrying revealed that Colonel McMahon was active so I sent him a message asking what I needed by way of accoutrement.  He replied that a uniform and horse were in order and that he would take me shopping to get them. 

Our first stop was the main store of Mr. Mako Magellan, one of Caledon’s premier clothiers, and one of the three landholders of the Magellan colony.  There he gave me the funds to purchase the Caledon Light Horse Ceremonial Outfit which included the Light Horse Dragoons Ceremonial Uniform, Hunting Boots and Regency Court Sword.  After taking a few minutes to adjust a few pieces for fit I cut quite a fine figure.

In which I adjust to my new station in (Second) Life.

First, dear reader, please, accept my apology for the unusual length of time since my last entry herein.  As I relayed at that time I have undergone something of a sea change in my station.  Whereas I have until recently been a mere vagabond traveler, albeit a well mannered one, with nary a single L$ to my name nor a place to call my own, I now find myself with an actual residence and a position of some responsibility.  Although, I am still pennyless.  As you might imagine this has rather shifted my priorities.  Rather than being content to simply stroll about the countryside I now had certain tasks which demanded my attention.

In which I return to the Sandbox for further experimentation

I return once again to the Sandbox to see if I can successfully command a wall to rise.  Since my previous session I have read more of the works of Mr. Morgridge wherein I found a treatise in two parts detailing the method of communicating commands among linked primitives.  In short, the method involves the use of the power word llMessageLinked to pass commands and parameters from the master prim to the recerivers.  If you care to read the entire explanation I refer you to the following  (part first part second.)  As this would be the crux of the operation for my Maze I was eager to attempt to adapt his formula to my needs.  (more…)

In which an eventful weekend leads to many changes

When I returned to awareness on Saturday last I received notice of the NCI Shamrock Hunt.  As I had no particular plans I took up the challenge and translocated to the site of the first shamrock.  What followed was a jolly romp through locations scattered all about the grid. 

There were 42 shamrocks to find.  Some were devilishly difficult while others were immediately evident.  Along the way I was treated to a display of the great diversity of talent and ingenuity of the NCI membership.  Each shamrock provided the location of the next one in the chain as well as a gift freebie.  Many of the stores had other freebies available as well which I duly collected.

In which I chat with old friends in front of the fire and have tea with some new ones

Having had my fill of wrangling with walls I sought out a more sociable diversion.  Pulling up the map of Caledon I noted that there were four souls in Kintyre.  I wanted to get a more complete tour of that duchy; so, I translocated there to see who was about.  One thing I noticed straight away, once the scene had resolved, was that the church I had seen on the Eatern island was no longer there.  It had been replaced with an open air pavilion.  While that is pleasant enough, I suppose, I will miss the church building, especially the grave yard.
