Note: SL is short for Second Life. It’s a virtual world. Kind of like an MMO sandbox. Everything you see was made by someone. I’ve had an avatar there for 11 years. It’s where most of us went when The Sims Online died.
“Long ago there existed people with a mastery over the elemental forces of nature. The Obsidian Order commanded energy and matter through a mystical science known today as Alchemy. They created many-Obsidian Chimeras website
wonderousthings, massive structures that defied physical law, and animals that defied the natural order of life. The Order left behind many things for us to discover, but no clues as to what happened to them. For a civilazationto have gained the powers of the gods and then vanish with no trace is not only mysterious,but alarming. No one knows for certain where the Order ended, or how, but we do know now that their secrets can be ressurrected.
The discovery of Alchemy in the ruins of the ancient order has opened up a world of new possibility. Alchemy, a science of deconstructing matter to its most base components and then reconstructing it into something completely different, has given us the power to create amazing beings known as Chimeras.
Chimeras have become commonplace amongst the budding alchemists of the newly formed Obsidian Circle. We thirst for more knowledge and have erected a massive library to collect and cultivate our understanding of this forgotten science. Someday we may too

And so it begins…
It all started when this guy, Big Red, almost knocked me over the first day I was at my friends’ Chimera place hanging out while they were setting up.
And then, during the grand opening, I went back and marveled over these beauties.
My friends own this place and rent stalls to others. This pretty display belongs to Lorelay.
And here are some more of my friends’ chimeras. Look! Bunny ears! They turn their heads and follow you as you walk by. It can be kinda creepy.
They walk around too if not told to sit. This is Orange Sherbert.
They all have distinguishing traits that can be passed down through generations. You know how much I love my genealogy. Nick here has snowflake eyes.
This place is also full of cool steampunk stuff… not that it has anything to do with Chimeras. It’s just cool.
Let me introduce you to Punk. He was just a newborn here!
And look! He got a binky!
So, at this point, I was sold. We went to the main area for the Obsidian Chimeras and I joined the group. While there I got to click this and it showed what color my stones (eggs) will be.
But not this one. It’s Buck’s color. He gifted it to me! And, it’s time for her to hatch!
Introducing Magma! Her hide is phoenix fire, hence the name.
She has these beautiful deep fairy opal eyes.
I introduced her to her dad Sunrise. Sunrise has a mother and father.
Note from the future: I’m reading this before it publishes and the “mother and father” mention has me cracking up! I may have spent hours already tracing Magma’s family tree. Indeed I really have fallen into the rabbit hole this time.
This is her mom Lioness. She has a special edition fur. She’s
*cough* Me again, from the future ya know? Sooo… there are these ones like Lioness that have no parents right? And
Magma wonders if she will be this big one day. No, Magma, you will be bigger! She will be colossal. For a young Chimera, that’s the largest size!
Next, I introduced her to some of the other babies living there. On the left is a female named Pearly Mae and on the right is a male named Pete. The next day I noticed another girl was brought in named Opal Fae.
And last but not least she got to meet Punk. I just love Punk. He belongs to my friend, and one of the co-owners of the land, Alice.
That’s her. I’ve known her over 6 years!
Perhaps they are a bit unsure of each other?
Sorry, Magma, I gotta leave you now! Expect to see more of her adventures in Second Life and chronicling her growth and maybe even training and breeding! Oh! And here are a few random pics I took with her…
