NOTICE: Paramour Shopping and Hedonism Have Moved

It was with considerable sadness that I logged out of RefugeGrid for the final time this morning. It has been my home for the last three years and I will always fondly remember the many, many parties and other good times I've had as a resident there.

Sadly, all good things must come to an end and Seth made the reluctant decision to close the grid. Real life has made it both impossible and impractical for him to continue hosting and supporting it to his exceptionally high standards and I both understand and support his decision. I do hope that perhaps one day he'll be able to return to virtual worlds. In the meantime, I want to extend to Seth and his partner Bambi all my love and best wishes for the future. I've loved every minute of it!

Paramour Shopping

When Seth announced the grid's closing last week I had many, many very kind offers from a large number of grids to host my long-standing Paramour Shopping region -- a location that sees more than 2000 unique visitors (distinct UUIDs) every year, and the home of the widely used Clubmaster Danceball, my increasingly popular PMAC system, and a wide variety of other club items and a huge collection of statues that I've made. I've also been hosting weekly Sunday evening parties at my Hedonism region for several years.

It wasn't easy, but after careful consideration I have chosen to make Littlefield Grid my new home. I know many people will immediately be concerned because due to licensing restrictions all of the LFG shopping region content is not exportable to other grids; however they have very kindly set things up to ensure that my new Paramour Shopping region has full export permissions, so everything you find in my region can be picked up by anyone from any grid.

It was important to me to continue to offer my products without restriction or hassle, and they've very kindly made that happen. Please note, though, that content found in other LFG regions must remain export-restricted.

As of Monday Feb. 5, 2018, you will find the region at: LFGrid.com:8002:Paramour Shopping

As you can see, the region is identical to my RefugeGrid version since we simply OARed the old one and loaded it in LFG. I may slowly add or renovate it but I wanted to maintain some continuity for the time being. I do plan to add some PMAC furniture in the not too distant future.

Many of the items you'll find here are large and may take some time to transfer so please be patient. For highly complex items or ones with a huge number of animations it could take as long as 4 or 5 minutes to appear in your inventory. If for any reason you have any difficulties accessing the region or obtaining items, please let me know.

Hedonism

Similarly, I will continue hosting my regular Sunday night parties from 5pm to 9pm grid time (8pm to midnight EST) and will be doing so in the identical venue. Everyone is welcome! You'll find it at LFGrid.com:8002:Hedonism.



I'll close by thanking Seth once more for his friendship and the wonderful grid he hosted for these last few years, by thanking Littlefield Grid for their kind welcome and the very easy transition of my regions and inventory, and thanking all of the other grids who have extended offers to me over the last week.

I hope to see many of you very soon as I start the next chapter of my virtual life.
