Great Things Come in Small Packages

Hear ye, Hear ye!  The Petite Kingdom is opening!

That is correct, you heard it right! The Petite community will have this lovely place to call home. 

From the moment we learned of the release the petite mesh avatars from Fallen Gods, Inc. Chance and I were excited.   Luckily for me, the female version was released first and Kenzie,  my raven haired fae, was born.  She is inquisitive and curious and this gets her into more odd predicaments than one would expect.   She is also a prankster, and will often pull them on those around her with little thought to the consequences.  She has a great love of anything sweet and/or shiny and is easily distracted should either be put into her path.  Impatiently we waited for the male version to come out, because poor little Kenzie was in dire need of a playmate!  Finally, after what seemed an eternity (but in truth was just a few months) Fallen Gods, Inc. released the male, and Chance's fiery, poetic, incurably romantic fae, Riley came to sweep Miss Kenzie off her tiny feet.   To say we adore our wee creations would be an understatement.  Each time we log in to spend time on them we find ourselves giggling and moving into a state of whimsy and fantasy that we  just thrive in.  We even added a home for them on our land, easily making them part of the world we have created for ourselves in Second Life. 

This week, Strawberry Singh posted about the opening of this wonderful new land, Petite Kingdom, perfect for those tiny beautiful beings to come and play and revel in the joys of being wee ones.  

The official press release reads:

*In January 2012, the first Petites shyly ventured into our world. Curious creatures by nature they were fascinated by our world and quickly captivated the hearts of those they encountered. Offered land for an embassy by Yabusaka Loon, the Petites set up a home, only to quickly outgrow it. Thanks to the quick minds of Alia Baroque, Sharni Azalee, and Marcus Inkpen, a larger space was built for the burgeoning Petites community, but as more and more Petites came to explore our world even this new larger garden paradise began to seem too small.

After much thinking and planning by their friends, it was decided that the Petites must have a place of their own in our world, a place to come together to share their community with one another and with the people who had so warmly welcomed them to this new world. 

Ringed by mountains, a lake as smooth as glass waits poised to reflect the silhouettes of the nine floating islands of the Petite Kingdom. A portal was created above the lake linking our worlds together. Five islands made the journey from the Petites' world to ours before the magic that powers the portal ran out. It was meant to be recharged with the magic crystals gathering from the caverns of the Crystal Mine. Unfortunately the airship that came to pick up the supply of crystals and transport them to the portal was hit by a stray wind current that flipped it upside down spilling the magic crystals all over the Petites Kingdom. 

Now, with half the islands of the Petite Kingdom here and half on the other side of the portal, we need your help! We need you to come and help us gather up the missing magic crystals so we can refuel the portal and bring the rest of the petite islands into our world. The Petites, always a very hospitable race of creatures believe highly that work and play should go hand in hand so wish to make the task of gathering the lost crystals an enjoyable one. Thus, we invite you, out friends, to come and discover the new Petite Kingdom on Saturday, September 29. Come and help us retrieve the missing crystals and stay to help us celebrate the Petites new home with music, dancing and possible surprises!

~Gabby (and Kenzie)
