OK, I’m sure some of you know I’m a huge computer geek. That’s why I made Pacific Northwest Graffiti in the first place. I’m a web nut. Anyhow, I just signed up for Second Life and It’s pretty cool:
So, “Why is this Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game cool anyway. It’s just another shoddy MMORPG, right?”
Well, here’s the kicker. I setup a Pacific Northwest Graffiti user group in the game.
One of the coolest things about the game is that you can make things. If you can do 3D graphic stuff or write code, you can create 3d objects and/or write scripts that will make them behave in certain ways. For instance, you can create a spray paint canister that sprays paint on things in the world: Like the one here.
I’m saving up my L$50 a week game allowance (you get for using a free account) so I can buy some of these. Once I get enough of them, I’m going to give them to users in our group and we are going to go paint the friggin virtual universe. If I get enough people, it would be cool to get some land and make a writer’s paradise. I can do basic 3D models and I’m learning the scripting language (since I code for a living it shouldn’t take too long) so maybe I’ll make my own spray cans and markers before I have to buy them.

Look me up and send me a message. If you are an active user of the Pacific Northwest Graffiti forum, I’ll let you into the PNG user group for free (I’m charging other people L$25–translates to US$0.25–to join so I can cut out the riff-raff)
