The Green Mire II - A Journalist's Perspective

The word was that the two boys who had gone missing from the Green Mire swamplands all those years ago weren't dead... Not so urban legend whispered that they were alive somewhere, just perhaps not here. Some talked of alien abduction, others of kidnapping. The old drunken journalist down by the swamp certainly was of the latter opinion. Lately he's been talking of proof though, waving around a shabby letter, a promise of information and more for those two grieving families. I had to take the chance when he wanted help, if only I had known where it would lead me and what I would find... 4 1 2 3 
I still want to believe... 5 The Green Mire II is the much anticipated conclusion to the interactive game playable at the beautiful new MadPeas SIM. The original storyline continues, taking you now on a grid-wide search down two alternative paths - the Journalist and the Believer. Each path costs L$100, for this you receive a HUD; a notebook / portfolio which page by page will guide you across the grid, offering a clue for each location. Each must be completed to move on to the next. Once you reach the end - all is revealed to cynics and believers alike along with all of the amazing prizes! (Not all of which are shown here by any means!)

O Shepherdess Where Are Thyne Pastures?

The last lamb was exhausted and weak. It looked up to the centre of its tiny world, the shepherdess, the benevolent caretaker and the source of all goodness, and it silently begged for water. "Oh my dear... I am so very, very sorry..." - whispered the young girl, and hugged the little woolly body closer. "There has been no rain for ages, the pastures are fenced, and we are not permitted into town. But I shall not leave you alone, my dear." The thirsty, exhausted girl kept the thirsty, exhausted lamb in her arms, and she was waiting for whatever fate was mapped out for them.
Shepherdess
As far as gacha machines are concerned, I made a vow some time ago. "I shall play one gacha machine three times, and I shall be happy with whatever I receive" ... and, oddly enough, the spirits guiding those machine handles reward me with rare or ultra rare pieces amazingly often.

Many of the items I'm showing you here are from the current round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, already duly introduced by my swifter-than-the-wind fellow blogger Vyl here. You can tempt your luck at Acerbus Silva until August 31st (or, according to the notice you receive when landing, until September 8th), so you still have a few days to walk around, pick and play.
Dress: "Mei Mei" by May's Soul in Green (common) - 75 L$ per play.
Headpiece and collar: "Lifa" by Zibska, full set with colour HUD (rare) - 50 L$ per play.
Face jewellery: "Miradi'el" by Keystone in Onyx (rare) - 50 L$ per play.
Necklace: "Eloise Chain Collar" by The Forge in Black (common) - 75 L$ per play.
Hand jewellery: "Aaliya Hawk" by Luas in Metal (common) - gacha machine available in the shop, 50 L$ per play.
Sheep: "Sheepie" by Adore & Abhor in Licorice - a previous Zodiac Event gacha prize now available in the main shop, 50 L$ per play. I'm a RL Aries so I'm quite taken with this sweet cutie, you know...
Skin: "Fairy" by Mudskin, blogged here.
Nails: "Basic Prim Nails" by Candy Nail in Monotone 10 - 70 L$.
Hairbase: "Curls" by EMO-tions in Black - a previous group gift.
Eyes: "Immortal Eyes" by IKON in Sage - group gift June 2014, now available for sale in the main shop (150 L$).
Pose: Gesticulate - an old gift from the FabFree Headquarters, not available any more.
The picture was taken at El Laberinto Perdido, the latest build by Romy Nayar - quirky and bizarrely cute, as her creations usually are.

When I paint my masterpiece

11 Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble
Ancient footprints are everywhere
You can almost think that you’re seein’ double
On a cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs 10 Got to hurry on back to my hotel room
Where I’ve got me a date with Botticelli’s niece
She promised that she’d be right there with me
When I paint my masterpiece 9 Oh, the hours I’ve spent inside the Coliseum
Dodging lions and wastin’ time
Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle, I could hardly stand to see ’em
Yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb 12 Train wheels runnin’ through the back of my memory
When I ran on the hilltop following a pack of wild geese
Someday, everything is gonna be smooth like a rhapsody
When I paint my masterpiece 19 I left Rome and landed in Brussels
On a plane ride so bumpy that I almost cried
Clergymen in uniform and young girls pullin’ muscles
Everyone was there to greet me when I stepped inside 13
Newspapermen eating candy
Had to be held down by big police
Someday, everything is gonna be diff’rent
When I paint my masterpiece

Sketch Artist

17 Knock, Knock, Knock. No answer, no reply. Looking around, he checked the number on the building, it had seemed such an unlikely spot after all. Reaching into his pocket he pulled out a folded note. Torn from thick heavy paper, its edges feathered with fine graphite lines, the fade out of some sketch were overwritten with a confident hand. The address was right, and the time... 16 "Hey" the call spun him on the spot. There she was, the girl with the sketchbook. Grinning, he moved to walk toward her until she held up a hand. "No" she paused, letting her bag drop to the ground, crouching to rummage in it, and rising again with a sliver of charcoal in her hand. "Stay just where you are." As she spoke, more like her appeared, each with sketchpad in hand. Soft murmurings of voices drifted across the lane to him as they nodded to each other. "The light here is perfect..." she said, settling down next to her bag on the cobblestones, her hand already tracing the lines of the building behind him onto the page. "Now, take off your shirt." 18 Changing things up a bit, with one for the bois. More from District 5!

District5

2 L'école d'art had an expansive summer programme, sending students across the continent in search of ideas. 1 Each student, talented in their own way, packed up their new bags and went out to explore. 3 Everyone was given their choice of equipment, the tools of their trade with which to hone their craft. 4 8 Some would work in marble, others in fabrics or oils. 7 Each began with pencils and paper, wandering the streets and lanes of strange towns for inspiration. 5 All would come together in the end, in the name of art. 6 Ah... Depraved Nation. NEVER disappoints. If you haven't been to District5 yet, where have you been? What have you been doing? Eh? Wait! Don't go yet! *chuckles* Here's what you can expect.
1 SIM - Five themed areas like the spokes of a wheel. From cheerful and rustic, to grimy and sordid - there's something for everyone. Here's a little of what I found - with more to come soon!
