Part of this video was filmed at Lagswell Manor on Renaissance Island in Second Life.  I believe it was the dance scenes.

Ranking in En Garde Top 20

In the middle of August, when I started playing En Garde in Second Life, I set a goal of ranking in the top 100 players.  That happened some time ago, but last night and this morning, I’ve been ranked in the top 20.

October 28, 2010--Ranking in En Garde Top 20

As I’m writing this post, I’m ranked 15th.  I certainly never expected to be doing so well.

I don’t know how it happened, but as of this morning, I’m at the top of Renaissance Island’s Local Champions list:

I haven’t played again since I posted about winning my first game.

Floria’s First Win Playing En Garde!

Since I watched the “En Garde! Tutorial” video earlier this month, I’ve joined the Renaissance Island team and played four games.  Last night I finally won:

After winning the game, I was ranked 502nd (out of 657) with 71 points:

Though I haven’t played again since last night, this morning I’m ranked 485th with 75 points.  I guess some people who were ranked ahead of me have lost since then.

I used the Snapshot function in Second Life to take the first picture and Jing to capture the screenshot for the second.  I then used Fireworks to blur my opponent’s name in the first (to protect her identity) and to highlight my name in the second.
