Twilight Town Reborn in SL for Kingdom Hearts Roleplay
I first came across the Second Life tribute to Kingdom Heart's Twilight Town totally by accident in 2006, when I was randomly exploring the virtual world while giving a talk about it at a Creative Commons event in San Francisco. When it fully loaded, the audience gasped. It disappeared from the world for awhile (sad to say), but now it's back, and it's just as beautiful if not moreseo - watch:
There's also rules here for Kingdom Hearts-themed roleplay in the city, which are pretty elaborate -- such as:
We understand people might be visiting KH as a place for their own RP. And that is more than welcome. If you are playing a character that is not approved and part of the main group RP, we only ask that you keep your RP to yourself, not interrupting sim RP, or forcing others to take part in your RP. Example: If you and your friends are having a private Sora / Riku / Kairi RP, and anyone not in your personal RP comes into chat range, take it to IMs. it is not fair to confuse visitors, or to encroach on already in progress sim RP. People found forcing their non-approved characters into RPs will be spoken to by sim security.
Guess it takes a lot of trouble to make Twilight Town. By the way, the screenshot above is what it looked like 5 years ago, when I first blogged about it. Both versions of the city are lead created by the same SLer, Miles05 Reitveld. For his sake, I hope Square Enix has a good sense of humor about fan tributes like his.
