Picture Book

Picture Book | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it

Picture Book is a fantastical world that expands like the universe everyday. There are obstacles, good folks and not so nice shadow players to meet along the path. Any story Ruby cares about includes conflict. Picture Book is a hero journey and explorers are given the opportunity to write their own journey stories while they visit.

 

Ann Dickerson is the builder of Picture Book in Kitely Grid which is a story telling world. Ann's avatar (typist) is called Ruby O'Degree which she describes as a fictive author and storybuilder in the tradition of characters developed for telling stories such as Sherlock Holmes, Marco Polo, and Cynthia Rawlings.

Talla Adam's insight:

I visited Picture Book and I must say I loved it but it is still a work in progress. Well worth seeing though and another example of the way in which authors, story tellers and adventure creators are turning to the low cost Opensim worlds to express their undoubted talents in the arts.

Opensim Virtual – Community – Google+

Opensim Virtual – Community – Google+ | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it

Maria Korolov (Hypergrid Business) reported, "Opensim Virtual has rapidly become the go-to place for discussions about OpenSim, with 1000 members at last count (Dec 2014). Lots of discussions going on here. People post links to useful articles, share content, post event announcements and special offers, and ask for advice. It’s a friendly, open and welcoming community."

Talla Adam's insight:

Apart from curating this Scoop.IT! news site I also moderate the successful Opensim Virtual community at Google plus in support of, and to promote, a free and open Metaverse of connected Hypergated worlds.

 

Everyone is welcome to visit and find out more about the free Metaverse.

 

Opensim Virtual is also at Avatar Social Network @ https://www.avatarsocialnetwork.com/group/250
