Festival of the Sister Moons

Celebrate the return of the Sister Moons during this festival Dec 8th-16th on the Pandora Hometree sim.  This is an important time of festivity for the Na’vi clans as they come together to celebrate the reunification of the Sister Moons.  Pandora is one of several moons circling the gas giant planet of Polyphemus in the Alpha Centauri system.  This celebration includes many tournaments, ceremonies, gift giving, and sumptuous feasts.  Na’vi healers gather together to share knowledge while warriors and hunters compete in tournaments to test their skills.

This is a social time when unmated Na’vi search for their one true mate for life among all the clans.  And it’s also a time when those who left their clans to mate (and joined their mate’s clan), can reunite with long lost friends and family.  It is a good omen to be joined as mates during the Sister Moons.  And a child born during this time is considered blessed doubly by Ewya.  This gathering helps to bring together the bloodlines of the Na’vi clans and to help them avoid inbreeding.  Na’vi are not permitted to mate with their blood relatives.

The moons are visible for a period just under 2 earth months, during which time many events will take place.  The festival is a mobile one as Na’vi avoid depleting one area of resources.  Their path follows the food.  When a region’s hexapede population is culled, the festival moves to a new location and is hosted by a different clan.  This time can be from 7 to 10 days on the average.

The winners of tournaments will be awarded honors and status (xp points) and often a new weapon will be made for them. Healers can also gain by participation in the healing ceremonies.  With the recent intrusion of humans there is some concern that they will disrupt the festivities.  The general feeling is that a show of numbers may deter the humans from any interference. There was some talk of letting them participate in some of the events.  (skinwalkers.)

Talking Tree of Voices

Talking Tree of Voices

Na’vi Bliss has made it possible now for you to just touch the tendrils of the Tree of Voices and listen to your loved ones past.  This tree comes with two options for ground cover, one color change and one that is purple.  When rezzed, all parts rez together and are not linked together.  TizZy prefers the two ground covers together, but for prim saving you may choose which suits you best.  Tree is 13 prims or 15 prims total if you use both ground  covers.  Where to buy in Second Life: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Freedom%20Island/122/83/3000

Fantasy Flora

Fantasy Flora

Fantasy Flora

Fantasy Flora is a collection of flora and tribal living items made to fit environments of forest living and ideal for building natural environments and used in role play on private sims.  The items are built to be low prim so that decorating isn’t inhibited by the number of prims. Many trees and plants are 4 prims or less. Many are interactive with the plants glowing when you approach them.  They may spit toxic elements when you touch them, or you can sit in their branches and on their leaves.  Many of the plants and living items are inspired from Willow Zifer’s Pandora role play experience and the James Cameron sources about Pandora, the sci-fi environment of the movie “Avatar.”  Many of the plants are bioluminescent on midnight settings and they are large and brightly colored like the plants in the movies.  Several plants, such as the poof ball tree, scorpion plant, and hermit bud plant are modeled directly from James Cameron’s designs.  Other plants are made for a mystical environment.  Because Willow used sculpted prims, organic and tribal textures, and fun scripts, these low-prim items are quality and look good at all angles.  You can build a whole forest on a very low budget with most coming in packs of 3-7 plants or living objects.  Visit at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pegase/176/170/1045

Click here to checkout this comic created by Txon Menari (Al Abonwood), Eyktan of the Txe’lan Clan on the Pandora Hometree sim in Second Life.  This is a very visual way to see the story and characters of a clan that made a new home on this island sim.  The Txe’lan are fearless in battle, loyal to their brothers and sisters, and ready to defend all Na’vi from the sky people who invade and destroy.

Great to see your creative work on this, Brother Txon.  ℝ☉☉ -┢┦ÅÅAAA ! !
