2020 Official Fishslapping Party


Dear Fallens,
You are invited, with very short notice, to this year's Official New Year Good Luck Fishslapping Celebration Party. This Sunday, 26 January 2020, 1-4 pm SLT, at Selidor in the Temple's frozen Pool. For you will kindly be provided music by Two Daves and one fish. Bring your own herring.
I see you there,
Alia

Sunday 26 January 2020, 1-4 pm SLT
TELEPORT to the Temple

I rely on you, spread the word that this is happening.

A personal note
I am the kind of person that doesn't like to share when things are not going at their best, I prefer to keep a curtain and deal with my life out of the spotlight. Unfortunately, there are moments in which you need to share certain information due to the simple fact you can't keep up with promises/deadlines/events, and this time is just a matter of a health issue I found myself into. 
To cut a long story short, after a very basic surgery on my foot back in this September where I had to put some fancy metal stuff into it and sever some bones so I can be all sportsy (Sports!) as usual, a series of events led to the fact that now am forced to lay down since a few days before Christmas. My back is full of hernias due to height and lots of sports. Two, in particular, got really bad because I lost muscle mass since the foot surgery and one thing led to another. I will soon get treatment, and things will go for the better but in the current situation I cannot do more than very slow work of building, adaptation and decoration. I can do minimal photoshop work as the precision of using a mouse over a silk cushion is not great and my keyboard blind shortcuts on my lap are sometimes not precise.... 
So to summarize: I am not sure how long this will last, I hope not much after the treatments and I'll be back to do all I was usually doing, but for now any painting and drawing, so skin work and tattoos and fancy ads, I am not able to. But I can do smaller things with building and libertine even if after a few hours I feel truly exhausted and can't keep up.
So I hope you'll forgive my lack of new releases for a bit, the half-built Athan still closed to public and Yule decorations still up.... but: I hope you can fishslap with me this Sunday and I'll try my best to not fall asleep and typo worst than I usually do.
Always your Fallen that can barely stand now, 
Alia

Temple Updates & last chance for gifts

I've added past event skins, Abyss Dracos and Psychic Pearls, spirit eyes and celtic warrior face tats to the Temple now that the events are gone. Some Libertine things need to be put on sale after yule but am sure there's no rush for that.
Tomorrow am taking yule decorations down, with penguin's help, so go get the gifts if you didn't yet as tomorrow they are gone for good.
Still, yours, the Fallen that can't get up.

Plans for future events, things, thinking of you and letting you know you are missed and am gone just for some. For anything please refer to Sonya, she passes me all info and deals with things.

A new decade

Dear Fallens,
Due to some health issues I will have to postpone the fishslapping and new year special of a week or two. Don't worry, I'll be all ready to fishslap your penguin butts soon but at the moment I am not able to sit at the computer, so this comes from my phone and a lot of cursing over autocomplete.
Hope you are having wonderful holidays and wish you a great decade start, I'll be around soon.
Yours,
Alia

Yule Season 2019


The Season of warmth, family and quiet festivity has started. Yule has come to the Temple in silence on the first of December: first, the Pool iced bringing all the animal families and snow, then penguin helpers kept zooming all over moving boxes of ornaments and setting up tables with hot drinks, tasty treats, and surprises. In the end, the Tree was brought and gifts started to appear, and they will keep appearing until Christmas Day so be sure to keep checking if new ones arrived.
Group notices will be sent during the Season on a weekly basis with updates on new gifts, events and locations with Friendly Trees, a handy schedule is also present at info arches, near the Tree and on this post and as usual helpful Fallens are in the group to give you a helping hoove.
There is more in-depth information about all happening below, check each section you are interested. The Season is here and I hope you will have a warm and happy one,
With my Best Wishes,
Alia Baroque

The Giving Circle: Gifts under the Tree
Every Year I and some friends decide to exchange gifts under each other's Tree. There is no deadline for that and we try to use this as a way to catch up and give our best wishes to each other. Gifts appear slowly under trees and are simple tokens of gratitude towards what good comes in our lives, giving back and forward so we can receive, in any form.


Friend Trees & Gifts locations 


Fallen Gods Inc. & Libertine Gifts differ in each location
There are a few gifts that are the same in each location, but a few change and those are Libertine Baubles and a few set of Fallen Gods Inc. Tattoos.
An additional new set of gifts is added this year as well, a collection of WInterscapes for your home you can collect in all the locations. Hope you enjoy!





Special Events 
Fallen Gods Inc. & Libertine participate in a series of special events that also have Gifts and new releases. Single notices are going to be posted about each, but here's a fast list of all the events that are or will be featuring the brands.

Enchanted Frost


A Freezing and bright round of Enchantment is live, with the "Snow Queen" theme to lead all ideas, it brings you Frost Pearl. Hope you enjoy, 
Alia


A Note about Materials
This edition of skin sets includes also materials option, which uses advanced lighting to enhance the textures surface shine and bumpiness. Inside the sets there are two options to use materials, one with the skin layer and one with the tattoo overlay.

What is advanced lighting? Check this WIKI here

- When should I use the Tattoo materials? Use this option primarily as it allows a better merging with majority of meshes (heads and bodies). It will apply shine only on specific intended areas of the skin allowing a less glossy look overall and avoiding problematic areas as neck seams.
- When should I use the Skin materials? Use this option when the connection between mesh parts is smooth and without gaps, also when you wish your body to be mostly matte ( without shine) and just have materials in specific areas.
- Why does my skin color look different? Using different windlight settings and enabling graphics settings with materials change the overall hue of the skin, as you can see below in the main ad, without advanced lighting Pearl has a warmer tone.

Additional Note: For optimal results tweaking is necessary and it depends a lot by the supported meshes as always, be sure to test your look with a nearby light source and different windlight settings and be an explorer in your best shiny development.

Goodbye to Annon


It's time to let Annon go, unmovable and never changing been now a decade, the Towers have been a symbol of the islands, but in their immovable nature, they need to go to allow Selidor and Athan to flourish and be reborn. The Annon region will be accessible until Sunday 17th November included, after that, I will close the region so I can backup the builds for the last time and dismantle. The region will disappear on November 20th, so I encourage you to visit it until then, perhaps by participating also to the offseason Litfest tours. Have a wonderful stay,
Alia

LITFEST Tour dates:
Friday 15th, 5pm slt
Sunday 17th, 2pm slt

TELEPORT to Annon

October 19, 2011

This next part is the copy of this past June, goodbye to Aear:
I've been thinking about letting go of Aear and Annon since 2013 and never managed myself to do it. Today it's not hard to say goodbye to one of the Regions, Aear, but I still struggle to decide over Annon. They are still the old 2008-2009 builds and I don't feel them anymore as organic extensions and part of my SL world vision. I will miss them, sure, but I didn't spend a day on them in the past 5 years and with the upgrade of prim counts on regions their existence is now uncertain as I can express my ideas on much less space with more detail.
My choice over Annon is still hanging there as I am not sure if I have yet a vision for a new makeover of the lands, but I firmly decided to let at least Aear go for now, so today as the Faire closes to the public and live for a just few days, I feel is the right moment to also let go of the light of the Archipelago

August 31, 2010

And now: a clear talk about money, tiers and open intention
(Please read this if you have a sudden moment of fundraising intention or similar, otherwise skip)
I am not interested in selling them or any contribution for their extended existence, the tip jar was always there so it won't make a difference as I take this choice happily and without regrets. The overall cost of both regions yearly was 2400US$, while their tier maintenance until now averages more than 27.000US$ including purchase and tier price change that occured a few years ago. I paid that amount gladly as I believe in supporting Linden Labs and the grid and wouldn't have done differently if I didn't think I couldn't afford it with my SL income. Considering I still do own 3 additional regions, you can guess my still current dedication to having regions in Second Life. So please, if anyone has a sudden moment of making a fundraiser thinking I am doing this because of a dire need, don't. I won't accept it and is not needed. If I wanted to keep the regions, I would have as I did in this past decade.



The Tower of Annon was built in 7 days for the RFL weekend Track 
that took place in July 17-28, 2010


I hope you enjoyed it until now and will remember the region with fondness, happy memories and longing, but I also hope you will be excited to see the new rebuild and update of the rest of the Arcipelagus of Fallen Gods that I plan hopefully soon.
