Surviving Second Life with some pro tips thrown in.
(Written with the help of my friend, Gigi)
Second Life has been a social game that’s been around for over a decade now. There’s not much point to it. There is no end game. It’s just a place where people can socialize in a virtual realm. It’s a place where I have met many friends and a few fuck wits. It is still a place where I will log into for a chat and have a nice relax. Like all games, if you can call it that, there are rules. So here is a very loose guide for surviving Second Life.
Appearance matters. If you look like a noob, you are treated like one. This is completely shitty but true.
Avoid “Breedables.” They cause lag and suck the linden out of your wallet. On an off note, you can’t see them breed.
Singing in a Karaoke contest does not make you a professional singer in Second Life.
Never cam or send real life pictures. You never know what porn site they might end up on.
Meeting people in real life is going to be a disaster 90% of the time, unless you know them for over 4 years and even then, they may end up being a racist redneck from Jersey.
Most female avatars are male. Very few females are male avatars.
Second Life is overrun with narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths and a few borderlines. All the gaslighting can be exhausting.
Ghosting is a thing and a lot of the Second Life population is dying of cancer.
If somebody asks you to pose on the ball, say no. They just want to ass rape you.
Nobody in Second life is ugly in Real life.
There are modeling classes in Second Life. Passing this course, does not actually make you a model in SL.
AFK hookers are a profession in Second Life.
Never give out your password to anybody. (Not even the love of your life in SL)
Very few Second Life relationships last longer than a month.
If you are going to “disappear” and “reappear” as an alt, don’t hang out at the same locations as before and try to pick up the same women. We know who you are, dipshit.
Gachas will ruin your life.
Don’t put your home landmark in your profile. People will stalk and put tracking devices there. (Welcome)
Flexi is not sexy. Neither is white hair with bad tans and 80’s eagle tattoos.
Don’t be too judge-y in SL, even with the people wearing cow utters carrying a milking machine.
People will judge you.
Free stuff isn’t always good.
Organize your inventory and label those fucking folders.
Second Life is filled with perversion and some nice music.
Everybody has alts and sometimes, they are dual logged.
If you want people to speak with you, then keep your dick in your pants.
Make your dick size realistic if you do need to have it hanging out.
Chat hubs are a cesspool of stupidity and will melt your mind.
Being an SL designer requires hard work….repeat….HARD WORK. It is not easy, and you will not be rich.
Use the Firestorm viewer. (Welcome)
Make your crosshairs private.
Learn to cam. It will help you shop in a place with tons of lag.
If you went the extra mile and bought a mesh body, match the neck to the head. I can’t take it anymore.
If you go to a club, it is not a rule that you have to play a gesture constantly.
Don’t beg for Linden and do not give money to beggars.
Most Dom’s are subs.
If you must meet somebody in real Life after knowing them in Second Life, be sure to ask them their penis size. There is such a thing as being too big.
Sometimes, your ex boyfriends turn out to be secret furries.
Women will send you stolen pictures / fake nudes. Just quit asking for them. Match the hands / face/ breasts/ to all the pictures dumbass.
Don’t log off naked.
There will be times when you will somebody literally screwing anything. Just turn away.
You don’t have to voice verify with anybody. They just want to hear your sweet angel voice to jerk off to.
If you are going to combat in SL, realize there is lag because SL is not built to handle combat. So you do not need to say every few mins “Why is there so much lag.”
Hope this all helps. ❤

Quest 18: An Exhausting Situation
When you reach Maghed and give him 2 gold bars. He is going to give you a new quest.
Basically, you will need to run around and kill a few Gahaz bandits and go back to Maghed.
Quest 19: Obtain Golden Desert Coin.
This will send you in the desert again – so you will need your shovels and compass.
You will need to travel pretty far in the desert (where it’s marked on the map) and dig up some coins.
Center yourself exactly in the middle of the mini map quest circle. Keep digging there and you will get 5 coins.
You won’t get a coin each time but keep digging there.
Once you find the 5 coins, ride back to Valencia and talk to Afuara.
Hand over the 5 coins to him. He won’t give you the next quest.
20: For God’s Sake!
The Black Spirit will be pissed you handed coins over to that troll and call you stupid.
He will tell you to go talk to Zobadi. Just do it and let’s get this questline over.
Once, you meet Zobadi in Valencia, he will give you yet another quest.
Go steal a storage key from Afuara (F6) and go to Arehaza – which is the town to the east of Valencia.
21 Quest: The Same Method
Once you speak to the storage keeper – the Black Spirit will give you a quest.
Go back to Valencia and find King Sahazad
To see quests 1 thru 6: Click here.
7th Quest that you get from Afuara is: Grave Robber’s First Steps.
You will need to go on your horse/camel into the desert where it’s marked on the map.
It’s a good idea to have a compass on you. You can buy compass parts on the marketplace.
You need 3 parts and attach them together to get the compass.
Make sure to have your shovels. How many? That is up to you. If you are new to this quest, I would bring at least 50.
You can find shovels at a materials vendor in Valencia.
Find Afuara’s Flag for the next quest.
The 8th quest: Find a luxurious decorative necklace.
This sounds harder than what it is. I literally only used one shovel and you can see how far away I am from the flag.
Once you find the necklace, drag your happy ass back to Valencia and hand over the necklace to Afuara.
9th Quest: Second Suggestion. Find Zobadi and speak to him. Go back to Afuara. (Because that’s how gossip works)
10th Quest: Zobadi’s Information
You will need to go to a temple just outside of Valencia city.
You talk to this kid and he tells you basically “Z” is a big ass crook and you move on to the next quest.
You jump back on your horse and ride back to Valencia to find that bastard. (because you probably don’t have anything better to do)
Of course, he’s missing. What an ahole!
12th Quest: Tracking Zobadi……because why not.
Right by the sign, is all of Zobadi’s friends. They are all pretty much useless when it comes to information.
Pro Tip Talk to the midget first.
You don’t need the other two friends quest. Just the midget one.
13th Quest: Tracking Missing Zobadi
You are going further out in the desert. Bring your compass and your shovels.
You will find Zobadi playing with rocks in the desert and not even the good kind. Click him for the next quest.
To be continued……
I know many people are having trouble with this questline and since I’m having to re-do it with my season server character; I am going to post it here.
What you will need for this quest line because you will be in the desert: Compass, Shovels, Water, Star Anise Tea (if in the desert at night), horse or camel and your weapons. (At bare minimum)
You obtain this quest thru the Black Spirit and you will need to find “Afuaru” for the first quest: Valencia Grave Robber.
Second quest is relatively simple – Steal a book from the Royal Palace. Quest: Finding Valencia’s Treasures.
Just on your navigation and just go straight to the book.
Third quest: Afuaru’s Hobby’s. He wants you to steal from three people marked on the map. In order to steal, you need to stand behind them and when the circle menu appears, hit F6.
Sometimes, it takes multiple times for you to steal the item you need. If you fail, keep trying.
Bring the items back to Afuaru.
Afuaru being the weirdo he is, now wants you to give those items to 3 other people marked on the map.
Go to each person and hit chat and then go back to Afuaru when you are done.
Quest: Give me first, then we can talk.
Next quest: Now that you can read. Use navigation and go read the book. Coming back to Afuaru.
Quest: Grave of a King. You will need to hop on your horse or camel and go northeast to Valencia castle.
It’s not very far. You will see three guys outside of Valencia Castle. Go inside and follow the long path to where you are underground.
You will see this stone ruin thing in the middle of the room. The circle beside it – go in the middle and use the tool that Afuara gave you.
A strange creature will appear and you will have to kill it. (It’s not hard to kill)
Go all the way back up to the top, get on your horse or camel and go to Valencia and see Afuara again.
To be continued…..
