Hazardous? Well, they do warn you!

The first time I ever came to visit Hazardous, I was falling rapidly before I had even registered that I’d landed. One false footpaw and I was tumbling base over apex, wondering if I’d get a soft landing. Fortunately, this little wolf’s rear has excellent padding and I made it with nary a scratch. When I returned to get pictures for the blog, I was a little more careful. However, there are many ways to fall, just from the Landing Zone. Try getting in the bath …

When you do finally make it to the surface, the landscape is pretty arid (this is coming from someone who lives in the UK, so anything that’s not able to have water squeezed from it is “arid”),  and has a peaceful but desolate feel. The important thing to remember when you wander around is that not all is as it seems.

Which Way?

Which Way?

There are too many features to list here, and more little secret “doorways” to other parts of the SIM than I have the time or the wordpower to mention, but I would encourage you to find the well. I am not going to reveal what’s in it, but it’s worth a look. It’s easy to get lost in Hazardous, though. However, there are several handy signpost, some of which really do justify using LOL (which means “Laugh Out Loud” or “Laughing Out Loud” for those that are still using it incorrectly!)). I don’t say that lightly. This wolf does NOT do text speak. Make sure you find the signposts, though. They won’t help you find your way, but they’ll make you smile.

I’d also recommend finding the lighthouse, which is a great spot for budding SL photographers and there are handy seats on the cliff opposite it. I’d suggest you try the various seats around anyway, they are loaded with great animations and most will suit couples and singles. You’ll also find a cute Tea House at the bottom of the ravine, if you manage to fall down. It can often be done without trying …

One of my favourite parts of Hazardous is the steps down the outside of the cliff to the surprise at the bottom. I love the imagery here. In fact, the whole SIM is reminscent of lost childhood (as my husband pointed out) and has a wild, lonely sense of desolation that is also a very peaceful one. Perfect for the blogger that likes to explore the grid in peace …

On another note, the designer and owner is a charming fellow and is very kind to those of a furry persuasion, which cannot be said for a lot of SIMS. If you run into him, you’ll be made welcome. I think this place is beautifully designed, well-thought out and also serves as a pleasant hangout, with Intan to help you find some romance if you want it. There’s a reasonable chance as there are often visitors in Hazardous. You’ll rarely be alone in this wilderness.
