On the corner of Beach and East 6th St in the SL10B Wonderous sim, something BIG is looming. You will notice the large green figure which stands South-East and not far from the SL10B Wonderous Welcome Area. If you are like me, your curiosity will take you right to the foot of this monstrous green figure.
Be sure to read the welcome sign and take a look at the sketches by the Behemoth creator, Loki Elliot, which led to its creation here in Second Life. There is a free HUD available that you should wear in order to fully experience this build.
Once you are wearing the HUD, you will be given some quick and easy instructions before you embark on your journey from the base of the tail to the top of the Behemoth. When you get to the top, if your computer can handle it, turn up your draw distance for a spectacular view of the SL10B Wonderous sim. Along your path, click on the little figures pictured above to continue the story and collect the free gifts.
The story is a somewhat cautionary yet charming tale of a brilliant idea that grew beyond its creators expectations. In fact, it continues to grow to this day, far exceeding what anyone could have possibly imagined. Like any good story, there were challenges and conflicts and still more to come, but the effort to support this Behemoth of an idea turned out to be worth every second of it for those that love it.
I won’t give away any more details because you should go see it for yourself. The Behemoth is a story that all of us who are a part of this little virtual world that could, I think can certainly relate to and be inspired from.
Happy Birthday Second Life. Cheers to ten more wonderful years!
Please note that these landmarks will not work until tomorrow, June 16th 2013, when the SL10B sims open to the public.
