I was one day old, no money and no clue what to do first. A very good friend of mine suggested I check out Thothica SL. He said it was good place to start and set as home. I took his advice and found it in Search. I teleported to an island called Twilight.
At that time, Thothica SL took up a big part of the island. I thought it was all the island back then.
It was full of paintings and sculptures. There was a cute little village with a pub and shops and apartments. I joined the Thothica SL group and was able to set my home to Thothica. I had planted a root
Eventually I discovered a class for newbies taught by Brenda Goodliffe in the Venice Plaza at Twilight. It helped me understand how to get around in SL, pick up or earn some money. She also has a very nice gift box with Landmarks and freebies.
I was getting braver about adventuring out.
