Turning of Alle

Alle has got his turning on Fogo Loch and is our baby vampire now. Congratulations to Alle and Epic! Here you can find some selected pictures from the turning and the copy of speeches during the ceremony.

Perseus about Alle: Allemanikes Abeyante is 4 years and 8 months. He joined Bloodlines and Fogo on 6th September 2013. He lieged to Count Epicurious Klees. He really is an unique guy, and a challenge to everyone who really wants to know him better. He is quite a surprise. No one would think that he would become one of the most present members at Fogo. He even lives at Fogo Village now. Alle is a really sensitive guy, who loves his friends and who needs to be with people. He believes everyone is connected, no matter how far we are, physically meaning. I am sure that, as long as he is aware of his limits, he will be a great and powerful vampire. I still remember the valuable ideas he suggested to us, while creating Fogo village!

Epic about Alle: I am pround to say that Allemanikes Abeyante has done me the honor of lieging to me. He is extroverted, optimistic, versatile, and spontaneous. Playful, high-spirited, he constantly seek new and exciting experiences. He is are enthusiastic about almost everything. He approach life with curiosity, optimism, and a sense of adventure, like “kids in a candy store” who look at the world in wide-eyed, rapt anticipation of all the good things they are about to experience. He is bold and vivacious, pursuing what he want in life with a cheerful determination. He has a quality best described by the Yiddish word “chutzpah”—a kind of brash “nerviness.”I can say that I learned a lot also guiding him in the paths of his second life starting now.

The speech by Alle: I am the one that makes your mind fly, I 'm your start and end. And you are all fallen, scared. All is vanity in this world will, everything is sad, is pop, it's nothing. Who believes in dreams is because they already have a dead soul . The evil of life lies between our arms and hugs. But I 'm not what you think. I'm not exactly what the churches think. Churches abhor me. God created me so that I might imitate night. He is the sun, I am the moon. My light hangs over everything is futile : riverbanks , swamps , shadows. How many times have you seen spending a veiled figure, fast, figure I will give all happiness. Figure that kiss you forever. I was. I am. I am one who always you looked and can never find . The problems that plague the Gods . How many times God told me quoting João Cabral de Melo Neto, Alas, alas . Who am I? How many times God said : My brother, I do not know who I am. Gentlemen, come to me, come to me, come. I let them in spins fascinating, living in castles and in darkness, and in darkness you will see all the splendor. What good you live at home as you live? What good paying bills at the end of the month religiously, power bills, gas, telephone, condominium, property tax? All of you are Faustos. Come, I arrastarei a pretty wild life through a shallow and vain mediocrity, which is what you deserve. Their very human insatiability , have lips, delicacies , drinks. I'm Allan Silva Jhonattan the wild spirit of the black forest.

 Dark Side

There's a place that I know
It's not pretty there and few have ever gone
If I show it to you now
Will it make you run away
Or will you stay?
Even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out
Will you return?
And remind me who I really am
Please remind me who I really am
Everybody's got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody's a picture perfect
But we're worth it
You know that we're worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?
Like a diamond
From black dust
It's hard to know
We can become
If you give up
So don't give up on me
Please remind me who I really am
Everybody's got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody's a picture perfect
But we're worth it
You know that we're worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?
Don't run away
Don't run away
Just tell me that you will stay
Promise me you will stay
Don't run away
Don't run away
Just promise me you will stay
Promise me you will stay
Will you love me? Ohh...
Everybody's got a dark side
Do you love me?
Can you love mine?
Nobody's a picture perfect
But we're worth it
You know that we're worth it
Will you love me?
Even with my dark side?
Don't run away
Don't run away
Don't run away
Promise you will stay

Cleopatra's Bodoir

Well guys, there is still one house more to visit. The house #4 where Alle invites us to taste all the luxury the world can give. A perfect decadence where the wine of your choice is served 24/7 accompanied by the finest delicacies. Four chandeliers of this room can turn the darkest night into the brightest day. And can you resist the seductiveness of the color Red? You haven't expect that all in a small village house, right?

Looking at the picture above you probably would like to tell me, that this room has already been shown on Chris Chronicles. That's true guys, it was already mentioned here. But only as a part of a bigger entry about the village and with one picture only. So, I thought it would be unfair to Alle not to give him the same attention as every contest participant got. Well, you may be also asking why Cleopatra's Bodoir? Well, just visit Alle and play with the poses. You'll get your answer.

The naughty side of Jonathan Smithy

We still have some more houses to visit. So, today we are going to invite ourselves to the house #2 decorated by Jonathan Smithy. And here we see another very good example that perfectly fits the village spirit. What is more welcoming and appealing when you are get a bottle of a nice dark ale? I guess I could spend hours behind that table drinking ale, having some funny talk with friends and observing the village life through the window. 

And well, let me be very honest to tell you that the nice and relaxed home like feeling is not the only thing that attracts my attention here. I am also very interested in a darker side of Jonathan. I don't know whether he is a vampire, a lycan, a hybrid or a human, but there is definitely a darker side inside him. Look at this corner! I think it's more lycan related. Cause why otherwise he placed the picture of that Big Moon above his bed? Or the Moonshine drops around that guy's mouth on the wall?

And as the title of this entry suggests, Jonathan also does have a naughty side. I am not sure what it is yet, but look at the expression of that pumpkin face. He is definitely up to something... Don't let this charming smile to fool you...

The Lonely Vampire's Nest

First a good news, guys. I am glad to inform you, that everyone has survived the Haunted Hotel. Although there is no check-out policy, but we could seal the deal with the Hotel management. A big bottle of Aged Moonshine, a couple liters of blood and a sacrificed virgin helped a lot to come to the agreement.

Another good news is that I am recovered from the Haunted Shock and can continue showing you the Village Decorations. But first - please, remember to sign in for the Scavenger Hunt by October 16th. The Hunt will take place on Saturday, October 19th and there are still volunteers needed.

So, today we shall visit the House #5. Once I entered I got the strong feeling of a Lonely Vampire's Nest. You know, vampires are always traveling in style. It doesn't matter if they stay in a small village house or a big castle - they always create that simplicity of class and comfort. Looking at those pictures it's easy to realize who is the owner of the place. But that simple comfort is so appealing and inviting that you can't resist just to take a sit on that sofa and have some rest before running away. Who knows, probably it's just exactly what is expected of you.

If you never met him, you might being asking yourself who Sky is and how he looks like. Well, you've already seen him in the previous entry about the Haunted Hotel. It's the laughing guy with the axe in his head. And you can see another picture of him at the end here.

And here is Sky:

The scariest night on Fogo Loch

Tonight was the scariest night on Fogo Loch  as Rhys Calhouon has taken us to the Unguided Tour through the Haunted Hotel. Some guys were scared to death before the tour started and left. Some needed to change their underwear several times during the tour. I am not sure how many of us are still alive. I am writing this entry now hiding in the closet of the hotel, but not sure how long it will take before they find me...

So, you understand - it was a great success. And for those who couldn't be there, just ask that creepy wolf on LP for the Landmark and make your own experience.  But I'd say it's much more fun to do it in a group. So, take someone with you. You can also ask for the LM from anyone who was there tonight. And here there are some impressions of the Haunted night. Spoil alert! Don't look further if you prefer not to know what awaits you at the Hotel.

And let's thank Rhys and his little creepy assistant for the wonderful experience.

The consolation

Well, it was a bit tough to choose a subject for today to write about.Cause too many things were happening at the same time. But I guess, first things first. I've already introduced you the winners of the Fogo Loch House Decoration Contest: Page and Snow Well I think it would be completely unfair if I don't mention the other participants. All guys have performed a great work and have shown a lot of creativity. So, I just keep showing you the results. And they are the winners as well - hey were officially granted the Consolation prize (or as our King says, the Surprise Prize).

Meet the House number 3 decorated by David. I don't know this guy well, so can't tell you anything about him, so let's just look at his style. Probably something more for a castle room than for a village house, but it's definitely appealing.  Probably we see a good potential here for him to become a Royal. And definitely an eye for detail and a good taste.

I guess I have to ask David where he has bought that bed and that chair. The chair would definitely fit the spot near the Fireplace. Perfect to sit on watching the flames and smoking a pipe.

Last Fogo News, October 10th

There are some recent changes on Fogo and you can feel it in the air. I noticed it at the same time I came there on the LP. The air was filled with a strange haunting sound. It was playing on my nerves and felt as if it could suck the last hope right from my heart. And if it wasn't enough on its own, I could hear the creepy growling sound from time to time. All together it turned the usual cosy LP of Fogo Loch into a real horror place. I've searched for the source of the sound and finally found it. And here it is - the Wolf from Hell who was placed on the sim by Rhys Calhouon as a teaser for the upcoming Tour through the Haunted House. The event is planned on Saturday, the 12th, Noon SLT. I hope you guys have read the Notecard by our Duke Fire. No special preparation is needed. Just take your usual Valium. Or make a joint to calm your nerves.

And I hope you've also read the note by our other Duke Servius about the upcoming events for the weekend after. On October 19 (yes, it's Saturday again, but the different one) the scavenger hunt will be organized on Fogo Loch with riddles and nice (and hopefully funny) time together with the family. There are also some Linden rewards for the best explorers. And to all Royals - I hope you can volunteer for a team leader position and give a notice to Servius by October 16 th.


Well, and our Prince was very productive (or hungry) yesterday. I will not describe the bloody mess he might left after his usual vampire feeding, but I will certainly mention the two new family members he brought to Fogo Loch yesterday. The first one is Wilson from USA. I haven't met him yet. And the second one is Bret from Florida USA. I was there when Bret was turned into a bloodtoy, but pity enough I forgot to spy and make a picture of that transformation moment. Anyway - here is the very first picture of him on Fogo Loch. He was just one day old yesterday, so I guess he needs a lot to learn and can use some friendly advice.

Formal Dance Party

As I told you yesterday, guys, we had a nice Formal Dance Party on Fogo Loch on Monday. I didn't tell you much about it as I wanted all your attention to go to our House Decoration Contest winners. But I know that you are craving to see some hot studs in their formal dresses. And that's completely understandable - guys in tuxedos are really hot. So, today I present you a lot of pictures from the party.

The party was decorated by Randy Firebrand (Fire). And he did a very good job. Champagne and light refreshments were served by the grumpy Butler and the obliged maiden while the guardians were watching the doors. Our King Perseus has even offered his own heart for the couple dances. I guess he didn't use it since the spring, so it was still full of courtship dances and mating behavior that brought a lot of fun to the party.

Well, and now let me just to introduce some of the guests:

Perseus and Wayne


 Randy or Fire


Rhys and David

House decoration contest

To celebrate the new village and to stimulate the creativity of Fogo Loch , the house decoration contest was announced. The guys who got their new houses in the village could take the challenge and exercise their decorating talents.

The results of the contest were announced yesterday on the Formal dance party of Fogo Loch by King Perseus and the village creator Wayne. The party itself, nicely decorated by Randy Firebrand was a success. But... the winners first.

The second winner of the contest was Snow. Funny, but Chris Chronicles appeared to have a separate dossier on this guy as just a couple of days ago I was invited to visit his home. So, please enjoy the rustique style of the "wolf whisperer" here in this entry.

And now our full attention goes to the winner of the contest, the Fortune Teller Page. The Fortune teller? Well, here you see why. He seem to give spiritual readings and predict the future for the guys who are in an urgent need to know whether they meet a Prince on a White Horse or can make a Fortune by demonstrating their dancing skills in a strip club. Or any other question else.

Not sure if Page was using his magic charms to effect the results of the contest, but I have to say, his decoration is impressive. It fits the spirit of village and the fantasy theme of Fogo Loch. It's very detailed and thoughtfully combined. It fills like those cosy antique shops of 1000 and 1 things having almost everything you might need at the moment. I bet it's full of magical amulets and potions for any purpose. And the most important - it's low prim. Wayne emphasized his admiration for a very efficient prim use for this project.

And here is one more shot of the house. I know guys, you always like to know if someone has a bed, how big it is and what animations are included. Well, here is Page's bed - it's quite warm and is suited for two (or even three). And as for the animations - well I'd say - knock at the door of the house #1 and ask if you can test them yourself. And if you can't fall asleep there, just look at the chart hanging on the wall. Just observing it for a minute or two and trying to understand all those sophisticated ways destiny hides from us is exhausting enough to fall asleep quickly.

Unfortunately Page couldn't attend the party, so I can't tell you how sexy he looks in his tuxedo. But hope to get the answer soon. Stay tuned, guys!

Snow - the Family Man on Fogo Loch

Today I continued meeting the new guys on Fogo Loch and making some little chats to get to know them better. I thought it might be interesting for you to tell more on some of our inhabitants. So, meet Snow. He is a nice and friendly guy from Canada. He was born in the winter, the time when snow dominates the most of Canadian landscapes. That explain his name. He is a very open and friendly guy who eagerly makes a chat.

Snow lives in the village in the house number 8. He was very kind to invite me to visit him there. His decorating style is simple, but it fits the character of the house very well. It's rustique as the village life is supposed to be. Two chairs and a wooden sofa - enough place to sit for friends and guests. Yes, Snow likes the family feeling a lot as well as he likes making the new friends. That is exactly what attracted him at Fogo Loch - the family feeling and a lot of nice guys. You are welcome, Snow, it's nice to have you as a part of our big family. Of course you are curious if Snow has a bed. Well, he doesn't. But that big piece of beer pretending to be a rug on the floor can be a nice alternative to a bed in its different aspects.

Snow is lieged to our Duke Randy Firebrand. He is fascinated by wolfs and lycans and wants to become a lycan himself. But so far he is just observing the life on Fogo Loch inside his human form and learns. Once the day will come when he becomes a lycan. And so far he is just running around the Fogo Loch like a playful cub and wiggles his tail when he sees his friends. Enough potential to reach his dream.

Well, guys, you might want to know more about Snow. I'd say the best to get to know him better is just to meet him inworld.

My room on Fogo Loch

Inspired after visiting the village I talked to a King about a small house on Fogo. But all houses were occupied. On the other hand, being a Royal I could get a room inside the castle.  So, now it's official - from now on I live in the castle of Fogo Loch. Fire was very kind to make a new sign and to provide me the key. Well, guys, when you see a strange scary dark figure  walking through the corridors of Fogo Loch Castle with its eyes half-shut and making funny noises, don't be scared - it might be just me on my way to the castle bar for a shot of my sleep medicine.

The room has its own Fireplace. And fortunately this is the silent one - it doesn't report to me about the status of its log consumption! That would be nice to sit here in front of it with my friend Jack Daniels.

There is something very special about this room. It's situated perfectlyinside the castle and lets the sun rays to create the beautiful shining effect. Actually. the cosy style of this room reflects the feeling of Fogo Loch very well and feels quite home. And one very nice thing of living in a Castle. There is a room service, so I get my breakfast presented every morning. 

Just one strange thing in the room was the plant growing along one of its walls. King told me that it has always been there. It was created by the strange ancient magic spell nobody could get it undone. Well, I like that little piece of nature in my room and decorated it with a bench and a gas lamp, so it would look like a small piece of a park. My own piece of park inside.

There is also a bed in the room, but I shall not show you it. Those who feel curious are very welcome to visit and see or even try that bed together with me. Hehe. Well, actually I need to buy a new one. This feels a bit too short.

And I found a very interesting surprise inside my room. There were a kind of a small glory hole on one of its walls. So I can spy on my neighbor Hansel.
