We thought a lot about what to put on sale, and we realized the best gift would be... everything. :)  So from now until the end of Monday, 26 Nov 2012, our Store Credit (a.k.a. gift cards) are HALF OFF. :D  It's very easy get your discount:

1.) Come to the ~Lantian~ Main Store at Schazm:

2.)  Wear your "Lantian Flox" group tag (membership is free).

3.) Buy from the special Group Discount vendors.  We rezzed them right at the landing point, so you cannot miss them.

Important : Remember, to buy a gift for someone else, use the vendor's "Gift" option because they are No-Trans.

Buy as many as you like, keep them as long as you like.  Our store credit never expires!  :)

Any questions? IM Wyvern Dryke. :)

New Group, Gift, Make Your Own Ornaments & Animated Art

Dear ~Lantian~ Friends,

As Fall season deepens into Winter, our thoughts turn to swirling leaves, piling snow, and the whoosh of wild wind.  These changes are all embodied in this update, as follows:

First, there is a new Second Life group, like a breath of cool, fresh air.  (This group is in addition to the mailing list, of which you are probably already a member.)  We are closing the old group, "News @Lantian Tower" and opening "Lantian Flox."  To join the new group, log into SL, copy/paste the following into chat, then click the resultant link:

Second, the Group Gift for November is enclosed with this message.  It is one of the Animated Art series, a snowy scene (see below).  Also, anyone who joins the above group can get a copy at our Main Store.  Look forward and left from the landing point, to the new "Info & Specials" area:

Trick or Treat + Mad Scientist's Lab

Dear ~Lantian~ Friends,

Happy Halloween!  Trick-or-Treating is in full swing at the Main Store in Schazm sim.  Come by, pick up a Trick-or-Treating Hud for 0L, and knock on doors scattered around the marketplace.  Remember, you should only knock on a door if the light is on!  Otherwise, you might get tricked.

This year for prizes, we have a mix of old favorites and NEW "Mad Scientist" components that everyone will enjoy: a beating heart in a jar, floating brain, laboratory glassware like test tubes and beakers, and so on.  Plus, as always, we have Gift Certificates for gifts.  If you ring the right doorbell you might get up to 250L in store credit, instantly!

You have to wear the Hud to get the prizes, so don't forget. :)

Oh by the way, we also have the Mad Scientist's Lab from which we stole--er, borrowed!--all the glassware and decor.  There are two versions: one all linked together (71 prims/LI) and one with that version PLUS all the individual decor, glassware, l…

Halloween Tricks and Treats!

Call it Halloween, Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, or just "Wednesday," the Dark Times are upon us again.  ~Lantian~ is offering treats and tricks for everybody, with several new offerings, custom pumpkins, and... (drum roll) the Second Annual ~Lantian~ Trick-or-Treat Event. YAY!

First things first!  Trick or Treating isn't just for kids.  Stop by the ~Lantian~ Main Store in Schazm sim, buy a Trick-or-Treat Hud (it's free), then ring doorbells around the store.  You may get a trick or maybe a treat.  The prizes are a mixture of new and old favorites.  And there's a big secret!  No, I won't tell you.  Okay, maybe a hint: each prize may be worth more than it seems.  I won't say more. Not yet, anyway. ;-)  Trick-or-Treating begins 28 Oct and ends 3 Nov 2012.

Second, the Make Your Own Pumpkin event is in full swing.  You can find the MYOP machines in the Seasonal Area.  Come on down and "carve" a pumpkin of your own design!  Pumpkins double as lights, …

New Stuff - Steampunk, Dark, Garden, Jewelry & Art!

Dear ~Lantian~ Friends,
LOTS of news, so much to tell you about!

First, we are rebuilding the market at Schazm.  It is now split into "Themes" on one side and "Sections" on the other.  So you can shop by what THEME you're shopping for (Fantasy, Steampunk, Egyptian, etc.) or what KIND of stuff you want (Jewelry, Decor, Toys, etc.)  The "New & Sale" area is through the doors and down the path.  Link:

Second, our "Make Your Own Pumpkin" event is back, with more pumpkin textures than ever.  It's so easy to make a pumpkin: just sit at the machine, click one part to change the shape, click another part to change the texture.  Plus pumpkins can double as lanterns which click on/off.  Keep, sell, or give them away.  They're very affordable! Link:

Lastly, on to our new introductions!  They all have a Dark, Autumn and/or Steampunk theme, and come fro…

Let out your Wild Side!


Got a wild side? Of course you do!
Then ~Lantian~ is just for you ;-)

We're feeling a little wild so let's put some stuff on sale!

First, a new unisex kilt, hair feather, and pouch.
Next up, some hanging lanterns with a wild theme:
Dragons, Wolves, & Bears.

Wild Ways Unisex Kilt
"Rustic" meets "rich" in this fine, unisex kilt.  Not just for guys, ladies, get one for both of you!  Thick, heavy leather draped with soft fur, ropes, and delicate, trailing ivy.  All the fine details you expect from ~Lantian~, plus a working pouch.

(That's right, ever wanted a pouch which actually holds stuff?  Here you go!  Plus, it's available without the kilt, see below.)

This eye-catching piece is sure to turn heads in any fantasy, medieval or rustic setting.  Flexible parts move as you walk, including the belt, ivy, feathers, & fur.  No virtual animals were harmed in the making of this kilt!

Fall Freebies, Plus ~Lantian~ Website!

Dear ~Lantian~ Friends,

Hello!  Just a quick note to let you know that, as usual, we are participating in both the Steam and Twisted Hunts.  Both kick off September 1, at midnight SLT, so stop by to get SIX (yes, six!) freebies.  This time around, our prizes are a little bit different.

Steam Hunt

For Steam, we are offering a pocket watch that really works.  Unlike most clocks in SL, this one has actual hands which move around the dial, rather than rotating textures.  And they're sculpted--we made the sculpts specifically for this project.

As always, the script inside is robust but low-lag.  Plus, the watch has tick sounds you can control (3 volume levels plus off).  The copper version is hidden, but free.  There are also Silver, Gold, and Verdigris (green copper) versions for sale.

Lastly, if you'd like to upgrade, there is a "Deluxe" version of each variety, which includes an hourly chime, an alarm, and a Lag-Saver Mode which turns the clock off when no one is around…

New Gig for Wyvvy Events - Friday Fishing at CDS

Hey everyone!  Wyvvy has a new gig on Fridays!  The CDS (Confederation of Democratic Sims), is sponsoring the event.  This Friday at 9pm there will be two rounds of fishing, 750L in the pot for each round. WOW!

In the future this time might shift earlier, and the pot amount might vary, but this gig will continue every Friday for the foreseeable future.  Weekly schedule attached :)  ( Link to blog page:   )

FEESH FEESH FEESH !  - Customs, Contests & More
by Wyvern Dryke

Do you like to fish?  I do!

I have long been a fan of the 7Seas system, and have recently begun creating custom prizes for it.  (If you're not familiar with 7Seas, it is a fishing game in SL which allows you to catch pet fish, rods, and other fun stuff.)

I have made crystal-themed fish for ~Lantian~ and some Steampunk/Victorian-themed fish for Mieville.  They are available exclusively at the fishing areas in Schazm and Mieville Poe, respectively.  See locations below.  The best part?  They are FREE for a limited time -- all you need do is catch them with a 7Seas rod.

Don't like to fish?  Don't have the time?  Don't worry.  After an introductory period, each will be offered for sale at affordable prices.  Please keep an eye on our mailing list or blog for details.

So!  Where can I get these fish FREE, right now?  Here:

Steampunk Goodies!

Hello Lantian Friends!

We've been digging into our Steampunk stash again.  Here is the "20k AquaGear Sphere," inspired by "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."  It has been available exclusively from our Steampunk area, until now.  Plus there's a new purple version never released before!

And three varieties:

* Prims: 5 (art) or 9 (necklace)
* Suggested themes: Fantasy, Steampunk, Vampire, Goth, Mer.
