SL Ports of Call - a new SL pirate blog has arrived!

I looked about and the combination of a lack of a good SL Pirate blog/website and the fallow remants of the Ships of the Line (which wasn't absconded as the Antiquity Gazette was) struck me as a poor situation, so... I went ahead and rebranded the old Ships of the Line blog to the SL Ports of Call.  The new blog will focus on SL Pirate sims, ongoing events, and more SL related items.  I've added a few locations/SLurls that can be easily arrived at, but if one desires to indulge in providing a bit of information regarding the SL Pirate genre, please feel free to contact me at TheSteampunkTribune [at] yahoo [dot] com!

Breaking news: Antiquity facing a partial closure!

Difficult times have hit the Antiquity sims in SL - it seems that due to financial issues.  As this event continues to develop, with efforts to maintain some of the current sims, and others being put on the open market, the future of the current state of Antiquity and its extensive waterways are in jeopardy, one does have to have concern about the future of nautical combats in SL.  To keep tabs on the developing story of Antiquity restructuring, please visit...

The Antiquity Times story and details
(not as good as the classic Antiquity Times, but alas, that has been shut down... by others... more on that story later)

SL Universe Forums

... and Flickr?


It appears that they have sorted out their issues - looks as if they have consolidated their endeavor, which is now appearntly 15 sims in size.  More details on their effort is located here:

And the Steampunk Sub has returned to port...

I've had a few comments on why the Steampunk Shipyard (SPSY) hasn't been updated in quite a while (longer than a standard patrol).  Alas, I have been meaning to keep it up to date, but the other sites I blog (e.g. The Steampunk Tribune, The Steampunk Travelogue, and SL Jazz After Midnight) have eaten into my available time, not to mention other pesky RL responsibilities.  Nonetheless, I will endeavor to bring it back up to speed, and return to adding nautically-themed topics and issues, as they relate to Steampunk.  Do keep a sharp eye out, as I'll be adding here - at least more regularly than in the past!
