This is not a place for public debate – this is a helpful place. we all help each other slive an aquatic lifestyle.

[10:03 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance – please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and huds. We’d like you to dress low lag.

Fantasy Faire is still going strong, and the fairelands are absolutely beautiful this year. Our own Echo has done a BEAUTIFUL job on the SWF region and you must check it out!

At the Faire, I’ve release two purple/gold recolours – one for nemissa and one for riptide – and the cost of them goes 100% to RFL.

Also on the fairelands is Aii, with the riptide tail if you didn’t manage to get it at Engine Room, as well as a second colour hud to go with it.
[10:45 AM] ?????? ??s???? (Neve Nebula): If the busy-ness of the faire gets too much, don’t forget you’re welcome to explore, swim and hangout at mermade’s Crystal Coast whenever you like, we’ve got 35 meters of cool clear water for when you need to chill after you’ve shopped. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Crystal%20Coast/231/106/37

[11:00 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: This meeting is now adjourned. Remember our SWF goals:

  • to assist those considering an underwater life
  • to increase awareness in the general public that there is an underwater option
  • to make mer resources (events, projects, groups, retailers, sims, designers) visible and easily accessible
  • to assist, as possible, with the viability of mer resources so they may continue to be available to the community
  • to promote the conservation of rl oceans, lakes and waterways and the nature that relies on them

Now go mingle and explore! Thanks for joining us this day!!
