Medieval-Fest on Raglan Shire ends with a Flourish!

The Completely retooled from the ground up JOUST is today’s big event as we say goodbye to all things Medieval!

Prior to the Joust will be the Best in Show & Parade as folken’ trot their mounts out, decked out in custom horse attire & armor or whatever the current Medieval Horse finery of the day is…. 8)


There will be Prizes & Glory (as the sign clearly says!) and afterwards…  The start of the JOUST…  STAB STAB STAB STAB ARGHHHH!!!

Seriously, I don’t know who thought riding a horse in full armor with a long A$$ Stabby Stick was a good idea but HEY.. WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE JOUST & JOUSTING GLORY!!!


Immediately after the Joust will be a live musical performance by Keeba Tammas at the Jousting grounds stage as we once again bring our Medieval-Fest to a close….


Thank ye to ALL who helped make this years Festival as Eventful as it has been and we hope you enjoyed the past 3 weeks!

No longer is it enough to merely find your way through the nearly impossible to navigate labyrinth, find the Throne Room. AVOID the Dragons hell bent on your demise, FIND the item you seek and then ESCAPE with your life…

Oh No… That’s just not enough anymore…

Nope, Now there’s Traps! Obstructions, PUZZLES to figure out in order to advance, MUMMIES who wander the halls and… AND.. AND….

A Scripted Health Meter and Combat Aspects!!

*You’ll be provided a weapon scripted to be used to fight off those Mummies that stalk you in their never ending thirst for LIFE FORCE….. AHHHHHHHHH

You can DIE in there… EEEEEEEEEEEEK!

The Various Traps, The Mummies, Deadly Gas… The Dragons…. All of it can effect your health and if you DIE… (eeeeeeek), You will be transported back outside to the Start of the Maze to start over!

Along the way , you’ll find Health Power-Ups to regain your lost vitality as you employ new tactics, logic and SHEER FORCE OF WILL to overcome the Maze and its obstacles!

This is by far the MOST Challenging Maze that’s ever been built & easily the most fun as well!

So come on out Saturday and try your hand or cheer your friends on as brave maze raiders attempt to emerge victorious and in ONE PIECE!

Trophies! Prize Monehs! Dragon Maze Glory!

We’ll go over full details before the event starts & a sneak peek at some of the rules can be seen in the graphic above.

Raglan Shire Welcome Center™ Update

Welcome Center update2

WELCOME CENTER INFO or ‘How I learned to Love Lettuce’
By Zayn Till – Three Time UFC Welterweight Champion.

With the advent of the new tree city, one of the important concepts in addition to presenting a magnificent build with many places of interest to see and explore was to bring our Prim/Li count wayyyyyyy down to a more manageable state. Proper build concepts, incredible imagination and the use of mesh helped to significantly accomplish just that and now The Tree City on Raglan Shire is something that I and many others are proud to call home. (my nephew and niece want to live there!)

For the Raglan Shire Welcome Center™, in addition to decreasing Prim/Li, we decided to take a different approach on presentation and practical functionality.

The Welcome center as I originally conceived it and as designed and implemented by folks (either long since gone from Second Life or rarely on anymore) was a place where people could get information about our community, either it’s history and current goals, rules (HA RULES) as well as links to our Raglan Shire merchant shops or community areas of interest be they public landmarks of places to see and visit or resident run areas on the various sims.

In addition we also wanted to have some STUFF! Free stuff that first time visitors could snag to help them in their exploration as newcomers to the Raglan Shire community and what being a Raglamuffin™ is all about. Over time it became a place often visited & laden with helpful information but also, a very prim intensive area as people with land rights put out more and more freebie items in single boxes.

The New Welcome Center will still offer information on our community, it’s history and unique non role play (BUT SILLY) culture that focuses on creativity, collaboration & friendship (powered by waffles).
It will still have some excellent items available for free for people, including just about every gesture I have ever created and a host of useful other ‘Thing-a-ma-bobs™’ that people can pick and choose from donated and provided by a host of lovely individuals.


There are a few new differences on how we will be maintaining the Welcome Center.

One of our newer goals is to drive traffic to our merchants who keep shops on the city(and by doing so, help us pay for the ridiculously high tier that Linden Lab charges me each month).

We love our Artisans & Artisan merchants!

Just wanted to make that clear. 🙂

Many of our Merchant Folken™ offer their own excellent freebies, but it makes no sense to expect them to place all of these out at the Welcome Center and not at their own shops. So we want to offer information at the Welcome Center that people can easily view that will then encourage them to visit said shops where in addition to procuring any freebies, they can also view the complete inventories of our talented merchants and their wares (which they work very hard to create).

The other change is that in order to keep the prim count as low as possible I will not be allowing anyone to place items out at the Welcome Center on their own so that we can control the prim/Li count.

We will now be offering A vendor system that will house all freebie items at the Welcome Center™.

If you (either as a Merchant or non Merchant) have something you would like to have at the Welcome Center as a freebie, Please package up what it is you would like to offer as a FULL PERM item and state which perms you want it to have… OR send a Picture and landmark to your shop. You can also send a link to your marketplace listing.

Send all items,pictures, LM’s as described above to:
RaglanShireWelcome Resident

We appreciate you working with us as we continue to maintain the Raglan Shire Sim in the most efficient manner and we thank you for being kind enough to consider others and your desire to offer fun free items of interest as well as information!

Thank you!

Also a big thanks to our Welcome Center Director Mz. Peaches™ Latrell for managing the welcome center as well as the folks behind the scenes who help make our community as friendly and welcoming as possible.

Remember that Raglan Shire is a community that is open to anyone and everyone regardless of size, shape, real world status quo, beliefs, orientation etc. and as such when we say welcome, we mean it! 🙂

Artwalk 2016 Comes To A Close


It Was Amazing & Hedge-Tastic!

This years Raglan Shire Artwalk was a glorious exhibition of art & creativity on so many levels. Sadly it comes to a close today but not before we send it off with a proper artistic & musical bang! Starting at 1pm SLT its live music from the amazing Keeba Tammas followed by the incomparable Ganjo Mokeev at 2pm!

Big round of applause for Karma, Panacea, Etheria, Kage and the whole crew behind the scenes who made what is possibly the biggest logistical nightmare in terms of organizing everything …appear so seamless to those enjoying the past 5 weeks. From coordinating with the artists, to hedge layout & design, to graphical elements, scripting, building, hosting & greeting,  all of it and so much more! Everyone involved deserves a rousing HOO-RAH & a nip of a fine vintage!

*raises glass*

To the Artists whom the entire ‘Walk is for and about: A Huge THANK YOU for participating and displaying your work, for putting yourselves out there, for sharing your creativity and for making all of us realize that Art is something (while often taken for granted) akin to chicken soup for the soul!

(along with actual chicken soup!)

*toasts the artists*

Break down begins tonight as we prep the new Tree city for the 2016 SUMMER OF WOOT™  look for details and once again:

Thank You Everyone!
