In Art, clownskis, Lapara on November 28, 2017 at 4:20 pm

Olde Astarte – Today Clownski’s Department Store has unveiled its newest window display, just in time for Christmas.    Mayor Clownski gave a long and impassioned speech prior to the curtain coming down.

After discussing the vision of the city, the curtain dropped, revealing a beautiful window display.  The story of the window is scrolling on the digital readout mounted to the ceiling.

Annual Christmas Tree column arrives

In Lapara on November 23, 2017 at 2:28 pm

It is that time of year again.  The ice ices over the roads, and things get colder.  That means this years Christmas tree arrives in town!

This year the tree arrives from the new national forest, chopped down locally.  It is on it’s way to the new “winterfest” grounds behind Clownski’s!

This year will have the Tree Farm, as last year, an industrial alley, stalls, and whatever else fits.  Clownski’s has also been temporarily expanded, with Santa moving to the new SECOND FLOOR this year! Not to mention the hundreds of decorations throughout town.

New Roof put on the General Disaster Insurance Building!!!!!

In Uncategorized on November 16, 2017 at 6:46 pm

November 16 – Lapara – News so big, it has to have it’s own article.  For years (and years) an eyesore existed on the eastern part of town.  The General Disaster Insurance Building, originally made with prims, and a cheap texture never had a roof.  The three walls of the building is not constructed as an equilateral triangle, and construction was near impossible.

The issue here is that to put on a roof took too many prims due to there being no easy way to line up the edges without an entirely new building.  Conversely, this meant most photography was banned de facto.  You won’t find good images of this side of town.

This has grated on the good senses of the powers to be for so long, and with the recent training in a mysterious and secretive building technique, a new roof has finally been constructed.  At a cost of only 3 prims!

Finally, after many nosebleeds, and height sickness, we have one less hideous issue in Ye Olde Lapara Towne!

Conquest of Astarte is Complete

In Uncategorized on November 2, 2017 at 2:42 pm

In the early hours, the Lapara Militia conquered – with no resistance – the last completing segment of land between the Second Life RailRoad(SLRR) and Route 1.

Immediate plans call for a State Forest, with possibly one municipal storage building.  Astarte did not have a decent prim farm in the same manner that Lapara always has, and this will hopefully fulfill that need.  The city design, overall, is that the edges of town are generally sparse in prim usage.

General Clownski would like to thank all of his renters, tippers, and other supporters for making this years long plan come to reality.
