The “Going To The Max” initiative to support Maxwell Graf through the ordeal he and his wife (Lyyric Fei) are going through (which he detailed here) is gaining momentum by the hour. The organising team consists of three people now: Charlotte Bartlett, Sophia Harlow, and Blazin Aubret. More and more talented content creators are joining the cause every hour. As has already been mentioned in my previous posts on the matter, the event will take place between 3 October 2017 and 10 October 2017 on a region sponsored by Callie Cline, and the location will be determined soon. The organisers of Shiny Shabby have graciously donated the booth that will be used by merchants on the event. The event will not be only about shopping; there will also be raffles, live music and other happenings, and there is also a Facebook page for it. You can also follow the hashtag #ForMax on social media favoured by SL users. In the meantime, you can help out by shopping at Max’s stores, both in-world at his Rustica sim, and on the SL marketplace. I can personally vouch for the quality and style of his wares.

On Friday, I bore to the SL blogosphere the news of a notice published on Plurk by Maxwell Graf, one of Second Life’s most respected content creators, known mostly for his medieval-themed furniture and decor, which he sells through his brand, Rustica (marketplace storein-world landmarkblog). In said notice, he explained how he and his wife were getting evicted from their home through the callous behaviour of her siblings. Very quickly, people rallied around to assist him, which is admirable and very heart-warming and encouraging in a very dark era. Already, Charlotte Bartlett of Scarlet Creative (in-world store, marketplace) fame got to work over the weekend to organise a fundraising event for him.

Last year, I wrote of my involvement with Apple Fall’s builds. In that post, I had written about the Portobello Corner Store, which is sort of an ever-ongoing project, with little details always being added. This time, I’m going to write about the Country Hall, which he had launched in the January 2016 round of Shiny Shabby, and which I’ve also been working on. It, too, will be part of my sim design project, and I think it would make a good office with a nice little garden around it. Being who I am, though, I wouldn’t leave it without a fair degree of customisation – which it honestly needs, and not just to make it more “me”.

Maxwell Graf is one of the most talented and respected content creators in Second Life, and, from what I’ve seen in his Plurk timeline, he’s also been an early adopter of the new virtual worlds that will duke it out for a piece of the market in the coming years. He has become known for his brand Rustica (marketplace store, in-world landmark, blog) through which he sells very well-made houses and furniture, with many of them being of a medieval theme.

The Basilique, 29 October 2014

Another historical region on the Second Life grid is going to close its doors, and I am especially saddened to hear that this particular sim is closing. On her blog, Canary “Becky” Beck announced yesterday that her region, the Basilique (Isoloto di Garda) will close on the 30th of September, unless someone steps in by the 23rd to take over the region to keep it alive; if this happens, not only the region, but also the use of all public buildings and furnishings will be transferred.
