  • Climbing in the Isle of Wyrms

    Hi! its Kath McGill the IOW Librarian here with some info for the large dragon owners,

    Did you know your dragons can climb? Yes! they Can! Not just uphill , but also Straght up, upside down, over and all sorts of scary spectatular death defying feats of wonder!!

    How does one climb?

    Certain Adult dragons have claws located in their hud! Enable the claws and begin your journey!!

    Where can you climb?

    Pretty much anywhere in the IOW as long as it isn't a private residence!! More on that later!

    What happens if I slip??

    Well, if your lucky you can get your grip back, but if not... well, AAAHHAAGGHHAAAAAAHHHA (just joking. Fly is enabled in most of the IOW)

    Can I take a passenger when I climb?

    Yes and no.

    Yes if your saddle has your rider sitting on your back, no if your rider is held in your claws.

    Are there any rules?

    Well, the best one is to relax and have fun with this. Another would be, if you fall, do the climb over so that you can learn what you did wrong and correct it, rather than catching yourself and re attaching at a different point. Good and great climbs come with practice!!!

    Basic climb. The grounds of the Abby of Archaea. and the Abby itself.
    (while some of the rooms are private residences as long as you do not enter the second story floors its ok.

    Your climb begins here Start Climb

    Starting at the Grotto of Kath & Ryu make a right out of the grotto to the dock post once you have reached the dock you may chose to climb to the top of the aquarium or try the Abby challenge, up the corner face of it to the art gallery opening then down the steps to the ball room , then down to the undercroft with out touching any of the floors.

    The cathedral of the IOW. Semi Challenging!


    The outside front of the cathedral up to the bell towers has always been a delightful challenge for the climbing enthusest! its up up up to the bell tower and back down with out losing your grip, and once you accomplish that, its upside down to the cathedral dome where you can hang out for a while with fellow climbers!

    The Tower of Suilven
    More advanced!
    Tower of Suilven

    this is one you may need to do some planning on , but it's pretty straight forward, up, around and then back down!! Watch your step!!

    this climb goes up to 1205 feet. take a breath and rest before you go back down again!!!

    advanced level of climb
    Archaea's Spire, 1054 feet. a bit more complex than Sulivens tower

    your climb starts here Archaea's Spire

    while shorter than the tower on Suilven, this has many many areas that you will need to climb upside down and over and up and sideways! it also has an inside to climb as well!!

  • The Adventures of.....

    Hi everyone its Kath McGill the IOW Librarian!

    Snow has sort of push..er, directed me to mention a project of my own that involves the IOW and St. Tiggys.

    (yeah yeah, Snow ok, OK I will tell them!!)

    years ago I wrote a trio of books involving the creation of Daryth Kennedys hedgehog (with her full permission) and there were some continuety errors in them and... Stuff happened (like I married Ryu and had to deal with work and family and stuff ) so I never had a chance to really fix things until now.

    and its really cool because not only was I able to re upload to SL and republish but also have the first of the series published on Amazon.

    The first book is called Annie Hedgehog, Sometimes.
    It tells the story of a young hedgehog who has been told by her brothers not to dawdle or she might get left behind!

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these books in RL will be used to adopt animals at St. Tiggys in england, Daryths favorite charity.

    So far Clive the polecat (now since retired from adoption) and Logan the wolvereen have been adopted! the animals put up for adoption do change over time, so there is always something needing assistance as well as bandage packs and food and medication for the many animals of St Tiggys.

    You can find my authors page on Amazon.com as Aunt Kath and more information regarding St. Tiggys here! Please consider donating to them as they truly do remarkable work.


    There are two more hedgehog books coming, and!!

    Jan Ross has been kind enough to translate Annie Hedghog into french, so that will be on the shelves soon.

    I hope you enjoy these books as much as I have in creating them for you.

  • IoW Print Shop

    Hi, its Kath McGill the IOW LIbrarian wanting to tell you about some thing really cool, the IOW PRINT SHOP located in the Undercroft of the Abby of Archaea!

    Isle of Wyrms Print Shop

    What is the IOW Print Shop?
    Well, for anyone who has had the desire to have their writing published the IOW Print Shop is the way to go!

    How does it work?

    It all starts with an idea, and then a note card or two!
    followed by a conversation with the printer and having the idea of the story worked out, then from the note card it gets dropped into a series of programs which will then generate a lovely SL book for the author!

    Are there more details?

    Yes, and there are some restrictions of what can be printed as well.

    Ok, the book has been printed in SL, so what now?

    First, a copy of the book is made avalible in the librarys (Iow & Raglan Shire) , It will not be for sale, but it will be free to view for anyone.
    Should the author wish to sell the book they are free to do so, As well, if they are interested in selling it on Amazon, a link to their author page will be placed within the book sellers shop.

    How much does this cost?

    The service to create the books are free! There may be a nominal upload charge for the images but something may be able to be worked out.

    An additional option to this publication is to have a single image created and a note card dispenser placed inside.

    Whats the next step?

    Create the note card! you will find a red mail box next to the printing press, just drop it in there and some one from the staff will get back to you , it's that simple!!
