or take note of the times and turn up.
The simulations are realistic in that the action is fast, furious, confusing & demanding as we fight against & with real people role playing as pirates in the 1770s.  The skills involved would be similar to the people going through the real experience at least on a cerebral level.  The realistic visual experience of firing the guns into the opponent ship

Pirate sea battles are now held online on your PC.


Jolly Bonny Anne, ships log, Second Life, June '08 - Chase Speculaas has made a stunning return to the world of Second Life pirate simulated sea battles by releasing his new Corsair pirate ship.  The 1770's sailing vessel is fitted with five powerful cannon on either side and two smaller guns on the bow, making it a lethal fighting sailing ship and the choice of our first rate captains.  The Corsair sails best with a  crew - at least one gunner, and two can handle either side - making it devastating in battle.

Chase Speculaas just released a free update for the brig which basically upgrades it's guns to the ones on the corsair
There's a notecard in the box with instructions
The cannons are the only sort of time consuming part ... shouldn't take more than 15 minutes total though. 10 if you build fast

We will be adding more on the brigantine ships both RL & SL on this webpage in the near future

The longship sea battles are fast and furious - with a two-person crew, the gunner takes on a very important role.  The captain has her (or his!) hands full steering and keeping out of harms way, leaving the gunner with the task of firing on anyone within range.

The brigs are bigger ships - although two hands on deck can still manage her.  The brigs have eight guns, so we need more gunners - if it takes your fancy, join the Jolly Bonny Anne group to be notified of battles,
or turn up on:

After the sea battles we have a melee wearing the SPD Melee system - available free at the dock before we sail.  Its either boarding ships - an exciting fight to the death at close quarters on board - or we all head to the fort - breech the wall with our cannons before entering and dueling to the end - with swords, flintlock muskets and pistols (even the odd rolling pin has effective!).

It's a good band of brothers and sisters that come along and crew on the ships - great friends at the beginning & end of the battles and at the after party in the pirate tavern - but during the melee its every man, woman and child for hisself!
LOL ARRRRR!

GaiaGirl's Photo & Media Studio

As my Second Life friends know, I work as a photographer / journalist in RL & 2L and am happy to do a new profile portrait for you, photograph your event, party or fantasy situation, or work with a stylist to do a fashion shoot for that magazine feature or prepare your photos for a model competition ~ this is the website to collect photographs or order your photo session.

My photographic studio in SL is well equipped, with hundreds of pose balls, animations, backdrops, lighting and three stages: a portrait stage with multiple backdrops, a model stage for large dynamic pictures and a white cyclorama for easy photoshop pics (if you want me to put your portrait onto any background image) – in other words its well equipped to handle almost any assignment from product photos to fashion shoots.
I am also available to do photos on your location.


The 1EarthMedia team is also available to build any item for your Second Life - from castles & palaces to telescopes & clothing.

Our full time Second Life staff can also organise and promote your event or sim location - combining photography, machinima (inworld video & movie making), journalism and website design.

Also, if you require a special build, we can go into the RL to make custom photos of buildings, vehicles and textiles to bring individuality to your Second Life item.
