Deep In The Amazon Jungle

The Amazon Rain-forest has always have a lot to offer. Diversity, beauty, creative inspiration! Sustainable life, dense vegetation, and a place we can make and call home.  I am going to work my way through the jungle on a solo expedition to see what kind of amazing stories i can discover using it as my muse. What kind of plants and animals will you find? Are there any dangers? Who is who? Tribes and groups? Marriages and Births?
    And who was it.....that stole my batch of cherries? Was it that Grumpy Chief Maccus that i adore so much?

Contact me if you have any interesting stories, in-world, in role-play. Your Friendly Jungle Reporter Aara Iceghost 

Public noticeboard @ Tapajos

A new public noticeboard has been placed at Rio Tapajos.  Anyone can use it.  Simply click an empty panel and follow the instructions to CTRL-drag a texture and a notecard onto the empty panel.  The texture will be applied to the panel and the notecard will be given to anyone who subsequently clicks the panel.  texture and NC must be COPY/TRANS.

The panel will remain 'active' for 3 days, and will then be reset.

Spirit Colours - Changes

We are making some changes to the meanings of the Spirit colours.

These changes were discussed at the recent Leaders meeting and we think they will bring more flexibility and the opportunity for improved roleplay in the Amazon.

Summary:-


WHITE - safe zone *and* pre-Wisdom Cave new arrivals.GREEN - no metered combat (i.e. using shots/hits from the spirit) but can use roleplay/dice for 'confrontation'.YELLOW - metered combat (i.e. confrontations resolved using shots/hits via the spirit)RED/PINK - metered combat, especially of a sexual nature (unchanged from now)What does this mean in practice?

WHITE
If you are new to the Amazon, you spirit will remain white until you pass the Wisdom Cave. This means people will be aware that you are still learning how things work here, and will be able to make allowances. You cannot be shot and you cannot shoot other people.

GREEN
If you choose to wear a green spirit you cannot be shot and you cannot shoot other people.

However you can now choose …

Height and Camera

We have now included in your stats a height meter. - and since viewers report sizes in different variants (alternative facts anyone?) we decided to go for an algorithm that will reflect your size according to the normal size for prims. so if you are 2m and a prim is 2m, it should be about the same, more or less.
Overly tall people (>2m) will have to eat more often as they would burn more calories, naturally.

If you need help to adjust your avatar here are two (not so new but excellently written) guides:
the first goes about your shape and how to make a realistic one:
