52 weeks of colour, silver: Vent du Sud goes underground
But then, I had a thought, which involved Jeddin Laval's Underground City - something I have been intending to blog forever.
Goodness, I could write a ten-page essay on this (but won't). Jeddin is a writer, a scripter, an inventor, an idealist, and a great, great friend.
'Descending Road': a fantasy work but there is more to it than that. He even invented a new way of reading on the Net: more about that in the city too but also on his site.
Jeddin isn't in SL for profit, but to share his ideas, his literature, and his incredible enthusiasm and sense of adventure. There is something to discover around every corner (and the place is BIG). From nightclubs to living quarters, from descriptions of the inhabitants to various features that come alive thanks to sheer scripting genius.
This, for example, is how the race of people he describes in his story sees colour (how appropriate): all with explanations, of course.
But one of the most spectacular parts of the City, to me, is the Birthing Chamber.
Pipes, platforms... and although it's stunning in terms of a build, just to visit, it is another focal part of Descending Road.
The place is really worth seeing. Grab a visitor hud or drop Jeddin Laval a quick IM and share his enthusiasm for a little while. Because to me, he is one of the very, very best parts of SL.
But do, please, go visit the City (yes I know I am repeating myself). But you won't be disappointed.
