The Forest of Kahruvel
I was enchanted.
I immediately began searching the recorded history of Second Life to see if I could find out more about the forest and it's mysteries. I came to discover that Salazar Jack and his family have been patiently replanting, reconstructing and excavating the Forest and its surroundings since the Lindens made their world available again. A world that they had fled 35 years earlier because of a catastrophic event known as The Great Erase. Valdora Grayson's (Salazar's mother) description of the event can be found in her apartments above the Cafe Jack. For his part, Salazar is now collecting the accounts, documenting discoveries and preserving the history of the area with his website.
While exploring the Seaside Village to the Southwest of the forest, I located two maps that showed the extent of the reconstruction.
On the left, the area map. On the right, the terrain map.
I have not included SLurls for all of the sites of archaeological interest housed within the Forest of Kahruvel and surrounding area; it is much more interesting to discover them for yourself. I encourage you to take the time to explore the area thoroughly - you will be left with many unanswered questions...
Whose hand print is this?
When touched, it makes the same noise as the landing spot.
How did this Tako come to be embedded in stone?
My guess is that this is the result of a Physics Accident that has gone unnoticed - not very mysterious at all!
What DOES happen if you ride the elevator in the light house by the village?
