It is with great sadness that I bring the news that last Tuesday, the person many of us knew as Nacre Swindlehurst passed away. Nacre was a soul who had seen the world and was shaped by its variety and its joys – and also its hurts.
A few years ago, Nacre lost his wife Kaela (also known to many here), but to everyone’s joy found love again with Banshee. There are no words to describe a loss like that and all the magic of our hearts go out to her in this time of loss.
Nacre was known to many of us as the king of the facepalm pun – a skill he often employed during dances. To those of us lucky enough to sometimes talk to him in IM, Nacre was a warm, open person for whom learning new things was an ultimate joy and who was able to bring forth this knowledge with the happiness it gave him when he himself learned it.
Thank you, Nacre, for sharing your dreams with us. Thank you for giving us your presence, your quirks, your sometimes glaringly bad puns, your warmth and the beauty of your soul.
Go now, my friend. Begin that one last journey that all must undergo alone. We will be here for those you have loved and were loved by in return. You will forever live in our hearts and they are happier places because if it,
Go now. Travel to the white shores. Walk upon the green grass beyond and smile as you see the sunrise. And wait for us there.
Rest in peace, Nacre Swindlehurst.
Just a reminder that this weekend, the clocks in North-America (including SLT) will go back an hour, which means the regular time differences will be restored.
Please keep this in mind in planning your event attendance.
After last year’s success, The Faery Crossing will once again participate in the MadPea seasonal hunt. Unsurprisingly, the theme is Halloween and monsters will be hidden all over the grid. The hunt will begin October 20th.
The hunt uses a HUD (available for a small charge), which will randomly send you to one of the participating regions. Using the HUD radar, you can then track down the monsters and score points. Near the end of the hunt, these points can be exchanged for some amazing prizes.
The Faery Crossing will participate with several regions (Faerie Mere, The Faery Crossing and Wildewood, to name a few), but we are always looking for more suitable participants.
For more information, check the MadPea website.
Merry meet, everyone!

Some say that the land of Ravenfirth started with one little inn that suddenly appeared out of the mists one day. They say that, as time passed, the homely, yet enigmatic nature of the inn began to affect the lands around it, until every corner breathed that air of barely concealed mystery. A layer of calm and beautiful nature, draped over…. something older. Something deeper.

SLURL to MadPea Summer Hunt
This summer, the Faery Crossing will take part in the MadPea Summer Hunt! This is a grid-wide hunt organized by MadPea Productions where you can win amazing prizes by gathering hidden seashells all over the grid.
The hunter package includes a radar which will help you locate the sea shells.
The hunt begins on June 13th! When it starts, we will publish a SLURL to the hunt start location.
It’s SL’s 15th birthday this year and what a journey it’s been!
And it’s about to get more exciting still! Linden Labs have unveiled new (and recurring) features they have implemented or will implement in the near future!
Among there is – hold on to your buttocks – the return of last names!! (dun dun DUNNNNNN)
Linden Labs will soon make it possible to customize your last name. So now all you Resident types will have to go through the same arduous process us Ancients went through and pick a last name that suits you (or something utterly random).
