So wenge is a type of tropical wood that is popular with guitar and bow makers. Hm. So I delved into a heretofore unexplored area of SL, that of weaponry—namely, the bow and arrow. Not a pleasant experience, my friends. Oh, and the bow and arrows don’t work like you THINK they will. Oh, no. The bow and arrows think you are going to shoot them, and nothing else. So if you want a picture of yourself shooting, why, you have to have someone ELSE log in and take your picture while YOU are in mouselook on a SEPARATE computer shooting! Yep, that’s the only way it works.
If you have ever read Robin McKinley’s superb novel The Blue Sword, then possibly this look will ring a bell with you. It’s quite a bit like I imagine Kentarre of the filanon looked like. At any rate, if I ever consider picking up a bow and arrow again, please just stop me!
