Empyreal Dreams

So, in another bout of procrastination I logged in to SL and found Empyreal Dreams.
It reminds me a lot of a  ‘Macbeth’ sim called ‘Foul Whisperings, Strange Matters. (Post on that sim coming right up next).

So, Empyreal dreams has a tribute to Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Owl and The Pussycat by Edward Lear and Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It does not take long to see all exhibits as they are pretty compact sims. The aim according to the creators is to ‘to visualize famous poems and literature using Second Life as a canvas.’. They have done this relatively successfully. I only wish they had incorporated some kind of audio into the experience to make it more immersive.

Warning: You may teleport into a seemingly exit-less room, the exit is is the black hole of ‘nevermores’, it only took me about 30minutes to find my way out.. O.o Once you get out of the Poe exhibit walk straight into the Coleridge poem, it’s really superb, scariest black water in SL, for sure. Once again, it is a pity not to get audio but maybe it was just not working today.

The Les Miserables sim is also good, great authentic textures and a galactic surprise above the rooftops. I am a sucker for a good space scene.
