RFL Day 3 – Information Overload
It’s the beginning of Day 3 and I’m lost. I’ve seen sp much great stuff my brain topped off about 50 things ago. Anything new just displaces something that’s there already and I’m trying to find ways to keep track of it all.
I don’t have enough money to get everything I want right now, and I wanna keep track of the shops, designers, and outfits so I can get them later.
I’m grabbing landmarks from the shops, but renaming them in my inventory so the thing I’m interested in is in the name along with RFL and the shop.
As an example: I just saw this really nice Morning Coat at Rebel Hope Designs but I can’t afford it right now. It wasn’t on the purple vendor so I know it’ll be around later. I grabbed a store landmark and it reads:
! Rebel Hope Designs-RH Engel J, Monarch Bay (213, 83, 27)
This is great but I’m missing two pieces of information. I renamed it to:
RFL Morning Coat : Rebel Hope Designs
Now all my RFL scavenged LMs get sorted together in my inventory and I know what the heck it was I looking at so when I go to hunt it down I don’t get to the front of the shop and think, “Buh?”
As I’m walking around, I come across stuff that I think might be cool to write about or ideas that I’d like to hold on to. Ya, that lasts until the next — Oh Look! Shiny!
I opened a Notepad document on my desktop and I’m keeping notes as I go. It takes a little disciplline, but it’s something to do while I’m waiting for the rez. By jotting down the stuff as I go, maybe I’ll be able to figure out what I did after I get done and can keep the trains of thought from becoming derailed.

Remember to do a story on the Treasure Hunt
How to type all this stuff!
Right click, grab properties, copy in-world, paste in Notepad.
Ok, these probably seemed obvious to the old hands here, but I’m not really used to documenting my in-world activities. This is working for me at the moment tho and I hope to avoid the issues I ran into yesterday when I had a picture of a shop and couldn’t remember which one it was and had to spend 20 minutes flying around trying to find it again so I could write about it.
What about you old hands at this? Any tips or tricks to share?
