Terry Pratchett on Second Life to promote Nation

Postby rentawitch » Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:25 am

I use Second Life a lot and there is NO WAY I would miss Terry on the Nation on SL on Thursday 9th October at 8pm

There is going to be a treasure hunt as well with the chance to win cool stuff!
If anyone comes on to Second Life, you will see me there as Pagan Umarov.

I've visited the Island in second life - it looks good actually - all the bits you expect to see are there, including the wreck of the Sweet Judy, the talkative parrot and the grandfather stone. If you go for it and follow the instructions you can find a set of clues that allow you to enter a competition.

I got myself onto this last night. The island is fantastic, they even have at least one tree climbing octopus. I accidentally discovered the last clue of the treasure hunt as soon as I arrived on the island, though that didn't stop me seeking out all the rest. =D

I just discovered that someone is building Ankh-Morpork, and their looking for help building it.

Might have done once or twice. We sometimes holiday in Bovey Tracey which is only a couple of miles down the road from Trago Mills. So when I was looking to create a character name and saw Mills was available as a surname Trago seemed the most obvious first name.

lol i like your style i used to live in newton abbot and torquay, so trago was a popular haunt, used to get some real good bargains there, like signed editions of soul music in the remainder stock and maskerade for that matter, best buy i ever had from there. But then they got real popular and put the prices up on everything, which was ashame really.
