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

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 on 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.

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 for this summer. Yours,
Alia

P.S.
There is a chance I might make the Aear Lighthouse build for sale in rezzers for you to feature them, but I cannot guarantee when.

Awakening


Join us tonight for the Event Also Commonly Known as the Jail & Bail of Alia Baroque, 4-6pm slt, at Midas - Fantasy Faire 2019 with Dj Lainey Thorne.
You will have the choice to support the awakened Midas, goldthirsty God of riches and Bling, or the awakened Ishtar, Goddess protector of the City Gardens and all that grows.

I'll be a servant to the Gods and their will, as their strength will rise by your support and donations which will decide the fate of Midas: covered in gold or preserved as it is with its fresh gardens.

Two special edition skin-sets will be available as donation rewards if you choose to support one of the sides, or both, and they will never be available again.
Thank you in advance for your support, presence and engagement and I See you tonight,
Alia

P.S.
Due to recent Grid changes to windlight settings and a bug that does not allow Firestorm users to apply windlight on regions, the current windlight is not the one intended for viewing. On FS you can use Anime 3pm for a closer idea to what the atmosphere is intended to be or a warm sunny day with strong shadows and cozy fresh interiors illuminating the bay.
