Welcome to Issue 10 of The Primgraph - where the jazz is cool and the writing - and photography - hot!
This month we are taking a trip into the early twentieth century ... to visit New Toulouse - that jazzy region owned by the Duchess of Carnteigh herself, Gabrielle Riel, the Nightingale of Radio Riel and Prim Minister of Edison ... who has built up a phenomenal diverse portfolio in the Second Life World.
Miss Ceejay Writer explores New Toulouse, while Mr Onyx Plutonian talks to the Prim Minister herself about her varied career.
And in contrast to New Toulouse, Mr Raven Haalan visits a very different and fascinating region in Berlin, an area set in the Weimar Republic - that short, doomed flowering of expressionist culture in post World War 1 Germany. And to compliment this, Miss Riven Homewood and Mr Jvstin Tomorrow explore different aspect of the Jazz Age and the Lost Generation.
It's also our Valentine Issue and we have a wealth of articles about this! Readers have sent us their Valentine greetings - and you can have fun guessing whether any of them are addressed to YOU - and if they are, who sent them! In addition, Kittie Munro has compiled some suggestions of delicious gifts for your inamorato or inamorata.
And we have Episode 5 of our exciting new web comic - The Quest for the Golden Prim. We catch up with Miss Emily Lockhart, our intrepid cub reporter, who will let nothing stand in the way of getting a a good story for The Primgraph. And we find out what lies behind the Librarian's claim that our heroine Nan is the heiress to the secrets of the Golden Prim as he reveals a mysterious diary that has come into his possession. We see the preparations being made for the dangerous voyage ahead ... and our hero Ralph faces an agonising choice when he encounters his Commander.
And for the first time we have an exciting new feature ... Lost Chapters from Great Novels. Mr Mako Kungfu's extensive researches have revealed some unexpected early drafts of novels that are well-known, and he is proposing to share them with us over the coming issues. We start with the first of these ... Little Women, Big Wolves.
Mr Onyx Plutonian has visited our library of the month - The Toussaint L'Ouverture Library of New Toulouse - and he brings us a fascinating account of this delightful place.
We have more of our classic serial, The Mysteries of London, and a further extract from London Labour and the London Poor - this month telling us of the Street-Sellers of Stationery, Literature, and the Fine Arts - as well as News from around the Steamlands and other vintage sims.
So, with no shortage of fascinating articles and beautiful illustrations supplied by our brilliantly talented team, we welcome you to this tenth issue of The Primgraph.
