Back in the day I heard rumors about a race of mole people that secretly lived under the world and would one day rise up and conquer us all. There were even screenshots as I recall.


They lived in Grigiano and other nearby cities for a bit, being an elf they befriended me and I will never name names. They are real, real sweet, real clever, real funny, and realy humorous. :D I love the mole ppl.

correct me if i'm wrong, but it seems all of this boils down to:

1) FIC - urban legend that became real-ish, albeit sarcastic in tone

2) Mole people - created to be an urban legend and.. it is!

3) Hippos - too much to even try to summarize.. products, legends, gods

4) Haunted areas of SL - this one is a true SL Urban Legend. there is no final conclusion to what's behind some of the strange goings-ons, except for that at times.. in certain places.. it's better to leave the lights on. ;)

5) Ruthed - it happens, it's a bug. but seldom enough to incur some legend-status.

there were a few others mentioned as well, the inescapable S&M Dungeon, the underwater creatures, SL planets in space... Havok 2.. heheh.

-

i'm at a loss to think of any others myself, but i was happy to see the Mole People mentioned. they're one of my favorite legends of SL. :D

i agree with previous thoughts on the subject of how SL is developing it's own backstories. adding a richness to our history besides technical, building, feature, etc.. histories.

-

oh yeah! and Torley's time travelling! that's a decent inclusion, yes?

Like many 'upcoming features' that are repeatedly piuhed backl (Havok, HTML, Stablilty), the promised Mules have been in a slow dev cycle since the Charter days. This is one of their most secretive projects, some of the amazingly innovative technology for this is seen in Pony Linden, who is a stress-test prototype.

Too bad they were all slaughtered by Marcos Fonzarelli to use their essence to make his builds shiny.

I heard one:

There is this guy in SL, who is so hideous that he can not get a date in SL. He has resorted to dating sheep instead of avatars. I don't know if there is any truth to this.
Kind of spooky, eh?



It was a goat not a.. oh, nevermind, I have no idea... *hides*

There is only ONE




No, seriously, I have this on the very best authority, there are no 'Lindens'.

Just one oddly dressed geek with strange hair living in a squalid festering room packed with servers and a huge bank of keyboards and monitors, existing on take out pizza and high caffeine soda.
He spends his entire existence pretending to be this that or the other 'Linden' and spinning unlikely tales about 'just over the horizon' enhancements that never seem to materialise, resolutely ignoring incoming eMails and making the odd public proclamation that sends the economy into an even tighter downward spiral.

His name is - ah, but, no names, right? You'll just have to take a wild stab at it.


But it's definitely true, I mean, doesn't everyone already know?

Paolo Portocarrero's third nipple. Toast's aunt's best friends's hair dresser saw it one time.

Is that what has been happening at Zero Medici's warehouse in Miramare?!?

There are body parts floating in a vat of chemicals there!

That's exactly what I thought!

Until I went and met them...

It's true, there's two oddly dressed geeks manning the LL office :)

Oh, and the one who said he was Bub was definately male. Well, I didn't check his attachments, but he sure looked male...

The other one said she was Jeska.
