One of the most unusual of times is that in which computers exist and games are tolerated, which happens all too seldom, what with the wide variety of repressive governments in place all over the galaxy, but at least for the moment, we can make Orbs and you’re allowed to download and install them, although for how long that will be is anybody’s guess.
Of course, “approved” games will always be available, but you won’t want to play them, and besides, my “games” are not really games at all — they merely rely on a gaming engine to deliver them and make them useful to you. Continue reading →
I had one of those unfortunate disasters, and lost a day’s work; recovered it by 3:00 AM and have now gone on to amend the orb with embellishments and such…notably a zen walk and some off-sim boats — my first off-sim in the GODD® Engine Environment. There’s so much room on the map, we don’t really need the effect, but it’s fun and useful to know that it’s there to be tapped into if necessary. I made an attempt to FRAPS the orb for you, but halfway through the FRAPS video, I realized that I hadn’t yet placed the guru graphics in the Great Hall, and have yet to put in the chairs at the conference center near the Dance Pavilion. You’ll notice that I’ve done a great deal of bulldozing and piled up some snow-capped peaks all around. Also, the snow no longer gets into the buildings, thanks to Val’s repair yesterday. More about Temple Chen-Rig at the ICW this morning at 6:30 AM.
Approach the well. Nothing need be communicated by text at this time.
Circumnavigate the well Widdershins by turning right and bearing left, all the way around to the starting point, three times exactly.
Then reverse your walk, this time going clockwise around the well three times to the starting point.
Now enter your question or prayer into the local chat and send. Your answer will come in the usual way, expressed as DPK (Daily Personal Karma), which means you will somehow be given an answer in the form of information, experience or realization.
You can’t over-use this item. It has no recognition of the number of times it has been used. This means that you can use it as a daily, hourly or VFC (Very Frequent Contact) Interdimensional Magickal Communications Device (ICMD).
Finally. I’ve been working on this little beauty for quite a while — about 35 years has gone into it at the moment. I’m working on a full-bore Bardo Temple, with 7 giant halls, each with a rotunda and seven chambers with all your Bardo Buddies, like the Horse-Faced Girl and the Blue Round-Eyed Buzbug. Oh, yeah, they’re in there waiting for you. Only thing, there’s nothing in there that’s gonna harm you, mess you up, jump on you, drop on you from the ceiling, shoot you from a distance…nothing like that is going to happen. You can’t drown in the water or crisp yourself into bacon by plummeting into the hot lava. No level of violence at all. Sounds like a loser videogame without violence, eh? Wrong. You wait to see how many folks welcome a game that actually works to free them from organic slavery!
