Not Forgotten

I’ve been on SL now for 2 years.  In that time, I’ve accumulated quite a large wardrobe, especially since my little store has made enough money to afford me the chance to reinvest many lindens back into the SL economy.  I purchase quite a bit.  When I started this blog, I really wanted to help people find unique items and locations within SL so that they could enjoy the fashion and the scenes just as much as myself.  I never expected a blog to be so time consuming and difficult to keep up with, however.  It’s even more so because I like to go all out with my image sets because this really is a passion of mine.

I want to share more though.  I want to show you all even more things that make our community and world wonderful and unique.  I can’t promise I’ll post all the time, but I want to try a little more.  Real life work can be consuming but, after all, I’ve been around two years.  It would be a shame to give up now.  I feel like there’s so much more I want to discover and experience within SL. There are so many artists whose creations I’d like to experience.

Style Oven isn’t going anywhere but the image collections may get a little smaller.  Maybe I’ll start posting 1-3 images per post.  That way I can maybe share a little bit more.  That way I can experience a little bit more ^^

Torn Away by Tera

If you enjoy my blog here at Style Oven, you may have noticed that I don’t post as much as I used to.  My best friend in real life has actually gotten me hooked on a really fun mmorpg named Tera, and now, any free time I have away from shooting or designing has been spent unwinding in this vast, impressive, fantasy world.

The game is visually stunning.  These screenshots I’ve presented here really don’t do it justice.  Time and time again, my friend, Mhyja, and I were amazed at the environments that would unfold before us.  Bluehole studios really did do an amazing job with texturing and overall atmosphere.  It’s easy to get lost for hours in this game just wandering around on your mount and exploring.

Combat is actually very fun as well.  This, in all honesty, is my first MMO but since I’ve started I’ve tried playing the games Aion and Scarlet Blade as well.  I keep going back to Tera because Tera really makes me feel challenged.  The PVP system is so exciting when it’s a fair fight.  You really need to think quick or else die quick.

I was around before the game went F2P so I’ve seen a few things go not so well too.  Sadly, many of the exciting vanity items have gone to RNG chance boxes which means you usually pump a lot of cash in just to get what you want (not that SL users aren’t used to buying vanity gear).   You can earn gold in game, however, and buy off the broker so it’s not totally impossible to get things through grinding and not through RL green.

Overall, the game is really entertaining and an excellent experience, especially if you share it with friends.  Customer service could be much, much better but the game itself is entertaining and at times very challenging.  If you haven’t already, give Tera a try.  It’s a free to play adventure that will entertain for hours!
