After months of frantic preparations, the mushroom cave in Shivar is ready for an historic moment - the 8th birthday party celebration of the most vital, trustworthy, erudite, and incisive newspaper in the metaverse - the Alphaville Herald.
Herald founder Urizenus Sklar and managing editrix Pixeleen Mistral invite our readers to join us as we celebrate the power of the virtual press to enlighten, inform, entertain, influence policy, and provide a convenient earth-friendly wrapper for piscine foodstuffs in transit.
The festivities are scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM SLT / 8:30 PM CDT / 9:30 PM EDT on Thursday October 6th with a traditional contest - wrapping pixelated fish in a discarded Herald newspaper.
The winner will be awarded a plywood cube.
While wrapping fish is normally the highlight of Herald parties, a surprising development will allow Herald readers to judge Rodvik Linden building skills and political leanings for themselves. Is Rodvik Linden's gift pony a sign of anti-vigilante sympathies?
Look for a diverse crowd of party people as SLebrities, virtual world students, and obvious alt accounts visit scenic Shivar sim http://slurl.com/secondlife/Shivar/191/161/44 to dance the night away.
