Steampunk Destinations: The Flying City of Lilith



As I return to reviewing Steampunk locales in Second Life, not only have I found some perennial favorites gone (e.g. Armada), but new ones cropping up.  A bit of research can provide intriguing results...

Additionally, two new factors seem to have emerged in SL Steampunk - a focus on formalized RP, and an infusion of more fantasy aspects into Steampunk (specifically "magic", but there are other varients.




One said destination is the Flying City of Lilith - a skyborne city with supernatural entities and roleplay dynamics.  Alas, upon visiting a number of times, the sim seemed a bit desolate, and a trip to their forums showed the last entry was at least one month ago (August '13).  I'm a tad  concerned that interaction on the locale may be limited, but please do consider a visit, enjoy the atmosphere, and make your own judgement, at:

Steampunk Destinations: The Clockwork Spiral


The more I write about the Gothic realms, the more I've become aware of its intersection with Steampunk (my previous in-depth genre).  While searching about for the "master list" of dark realms for SL, I came across an  interesting  destination - the Clockwork Spiral.

The Clockwork Spiral is not only a very nicely done floating city, but its also benefits the National Kidney Foundation - an extremely worthy cause!  With a plethora of unique Steampunk and Gothic products - many of which are special limited editions by outstanding designers, one can lose track of time at this locale.



The wide streets of the Clockwork Spiral - ready for your shopping  adventures!

Unfortunately, I learned of this endeavor rather later (e.g. yesterday evening), so do consider visiting today (Sunday, the 22nd of September), as once the clock ticks to midnight, the sim will be gone!
