Gotham Halloween Event.
Read Wesley's article in Extra.
Quite a bit happened this weekend in Second Life. It was the opening of the annual Burn2 art and music festival. But it also saw the anniversary events of Trotsdale and Luskwood (above). There was a Halloween party at the Europa Wulfenbach sim. Making Strides in Second Life had some events. And Senchai Libraries took part in the "Scare Me Silly" fundraiser for Team Diabetes.
We have some about Burn2 today. We'll get to more time permitting.
"Welcome Rangers," Leondra Larsson told the others, "I first want to say how much I enjoyed training and learning with each of you. I first want to say how much I enjoyed training and learning with each of you. You are special. You have answered the call. You have trained and you are ready. This past year at Burning Man marked the 25th anniversary of the Rebar Ceremony. In mirroring that ritual, I am honoring the Black Rock Rangers and the BURN2 Rangers".
"I am going to draw a line on the Playa," Leondra told them. "On the other side of this line, everything will be different. I am going to do that now. ... See it?" People hesitated to answer at first, then were saying they could. Leondra continued, "All step up to that line. Magic of SL, it can be bigger (smile). What you serve is the community. Please, Rangers of the class of 2017 cross this line." And they did, "Rangers stepping up."
Leondra went on, "Now brother and sister Rangers of former years, cross this line with me, and join our new Rangers. ... What we make out of this is up to us. May we serve with kindness, empathy, and helpfulness. May we be the embodiment of the 10 Principles and be viewed as helpers of the community." "And do a whole lot of nothing this week," Miss Suzanne Super Sweet (SuperSuz Resident) quipped.
After that and a few more lines, and a picture taken, the rangers split up to go to different places around the Burn2 grounds.

The largest and longest running yearly art and music festival, Burn2, will be starting tomorrow. Originally called Burning Life, Burn2 is the inworld version of the Burning Man festival that takes place every year in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. It's notable that while coming up with Second Life, members of the early Linden Lab attended Burning Man, and the event was a partial inspiration for the virtual world's development. In recent years, the popularity of the event has resulted in smaller spinnoff events throughout the year, though the "Octoburn" as it's come to be called remains the main one.
This year's festival will take place from Saturday October 21 to Sunday October 29. The theme, which always reflects the real-life Burning Man, will be "Radical Ritual." There are five sims of artistic exhibits and music events: Burning Man - Mirage, Burning Man - Limbo, Burning Man - Alkali, Burning Man - Black Rock, and Burning Man - Deep Hole.
Sadly, the real-life Burning Man festival was marked by tragedy this year when one man ran into the flames of the "Burning of The Man," and later died of his injuries. While no harm will come to your avatar in the virtual event, all visitors are asked to comply with the requests of the volunteer staff.

Shockwave Yareach's "Alien Egg Hunt" is back. In the past, it was a twisted take on an Easter egg hunt. But it fits in fine with Halloween. Players take on the role of someone searching the spaceship "Nostromo" for alien eggs and creatures. To play the game, you need a HUD, which can be picked up at the maze's start, and a gun that can function in the game. You can buy the one at the start for ten Lindens, or use your own. For the later, test it on the display egg to make sure it works.
For more information on the game, read Grease Coake's article from 2013.
