«Elf Dream» is a social group which exists into several virtual worlds.
Its purpose is to offer the experience of the immersion in a world of
beauty and warm relationship. To connect together everybody
interested in the «Elvish» ideal of an harmonious and
free social life, into nature, beauty, friendship, freedom, humour,
etc. The theme of the Elfs is a good start for this, since
«Nice places attract nice people»!
Elf Dream is building a network of friends and places, to
be ready to welcome new people who never went into virtual worlds
The group exists in
OSGrid, facebook, Google groups and LinkedIn.
If you are in one of these, I encourage you to join these groups,
in order to keep contact whatever happens.
Our hangout place, in Vanya Sulie,
This troglodytic house is much larger than it looks,
with five large rooms, each for a different activity.
Video: this second Elven village was build for the 9th birtday of Inworldz, and it remained several months on line.
Further we visit the elven village itself. I could add several types of new houses,
entirely in mesh.
This new house, entirely in mesh, was built especially for the IW9 elven village.
I had no time yet to texture it, so I used existing textures. Note the realistic hill,
not the cartoonish «Second Life mountains»
Video: this Elven village was build for the 8th birtday of Inworldz, and it remained several months on line.
We were allowed to build in dedicated places.
As this was too big a work to complete in time, I reused ancient builds, which appear as lower quality today.
But I still could do the small elven homes (under the trees) with top level quality: mesh, smart texturing, etc.
Enjoy this visit, and the immersion in a beautiful world, while hearing some nice inspiring New
Age or space ambient music
Video: This is a project for a large elven temple,
into lands which would be entirely consecrated to
Elf Dream. This project remained visible for two or three
months thanks to the initiative
Inworldz Cultural Endowment (ICE)
Elf dream guidelines
charter in the virtual says: «Free Elven group. For us, being
an Elf (or any being of the light side) is the ideal of a better
world of nature, beauty and poetry, together with wise, kind, loving
and open people... If your way is to commit to the Elven path, then
come make the dream come true».
I am glad
that until now everything went fine without any other formal rule.
Here are however more accurate guidelines for Elf Dream:
Dream» fosters the Elvish ideal of a free, pleasant and kind
character species are beings of light, or beings of nature, living
into nice and harmonious places.
lands are elven style, but not Middle Age: it must look wonderful.
Other themes like modern elves must find their place too.
common chat and places, we avoid nudity and the joys of the bed, so that
everybody can feel welcome, including children. But we may have places
for all the tastes, arranged so that no interference can happen.
-We encourage a peaceful and non-sectarian spirituality, as a bringer of profound
experiences and harmonious relationship, or solutions to numerous
collaborative and exploration roleplay.
usual social rules, like avoiding drama, intolerance, aggression,
non-violence and harmony, especially with avoiding allusions to hunt,
meat, alcohol, political scheming, etc.
problems which may happen, the ideal of a free, pleasant and kind
social life is worth some spiritual work for mending our behaviour
and feelings, when they cause issues.
Dream be a place where people succeed to do so.
Dream be a place where people are able of making the vision true into
their hearts and into their life experience.
These guidelines were designed from the sometimes harsh experiences
of groups in Second Life. More
detailed rules may become necessary when we are more numerous.
However, formal rules having their own inconveniences, it will be a
Proposed Elf Dream lands charter
The purpose of the proposed Elf Dream estate would be to offer the
experience of the immersion in a world of beauty and nature. However
to accommodate several themes, it would be divided by altitude:
-From 0 to 1000m: sea level. General public, with only nature, fantazy, Fairy,
Elven or New Age builds, provided that they are beautiful. It would be
formed of islands in a sea, or lands blending together continuously.
No intensive roleplay, especially no fight or ugly creatures. OWOS
chart with theme restrictions. Privacy volumes restricted to homes or
enclosed areas. Not intended for shops, but some selling can happen
discretely, with small signs in the theme.
-From 1000m to 2000m: No building (save caves hanging from the 2000m level)
-From 2000m to 3000m: Modern Elfs continuous platform. Same rules as ground
level, but modern or scifi items and technology would be allowed. OWOS
chart without restrictions.
-From 3000m to 4000m: no building.
-From 4000m to 10000m: shops, stores, skyboxes, building platforms. Privacy
volumes allowed without restrictions. Builds would be staggered to
minimise mutual interferences. Adult content allowed without
restriction inside the privacy zones, provided that it is beautiful
and angelic (and legal).
Privacy zones are an Inworldz feature in the process of
implementation (see Mantis
67), allowing for a real privacy without caming or spying.
Waiting for it, safety orbs are allowed. They will be forbidden once
the privacy volumes are available.
chart is for allowing a free flying and boating into private
lands, by removing obstacles such as no object entry, etc. Estates
adhere to it in a voluntarily basis, but then in Elf Dream it will be
mandatory. It contains protections on theme, and on abusively low
flying or buzzing over.
