EDER D’URU UPDATE – July 21st, 2009

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

The following was sent out in a notecard to members of the Eder D’Uru group in Second Life.

* * NEWS * *

EDER D’URU GUILDS MEETING HELD SUNDAY – Summary & Chatlog available upon request. Some of the highlights include:

* Jeff Lewis announced, “We have a nexus now!”
All linking book podiums in the sim are now linking to the new nexus and explorers will need to wear their KI in order to use it. Adding links is just like in Uru: click the KI symbol next to the book on the stand. There currently is no default link (exit) within the nexus, so users should register at least one link before entering. Although there are alternative modes of travel within the cavern (ferry, walking, etc.), visitors will be encouraged to have a KI when exploring Eder D’Uru.
There will soon be an option for residents to have their own nexus podium with a choice of making it private or public. Also, the building team is considering adding a private category for each resident. Minkata will not be accessible through the nexus, but a linking book to it will be placed in the new library currently under construction.
Users who encounter any problems with the nexus should contact Nadnerb Tebaldi or JeffeJ5005 Lewis.
* Jeff hinted that there will be additional new uses for the KI coming in the next month or two.
* The Summer Journey is expected to be released this week (see below).
* Ghaelen Winnikow announced that the Guild of Healers will be holding a special weekend session of the regular mediations this Sunday to gauge interest in holding sessions on weekends (see below).

The Eder D’Uru Summer Journey focuses on the sim residents. What does Krell believe? What was DeAnn’s most exciting time in Uru? Who taught Ktahdn to broadcast music in the cavern?

Visit the residents in their homes or favorite locations in the sim to learn the answers to these questions and more to solve a simple puzzle for a prize.
