Isn’t It *ionic*?

1 ionic

The Chapter Four has become one of the events that I anticipate like a child anticipates Christmas. It ranks right up there with Collabor88 and The Arcade for me, not just in terms of the high-quality goodies, but because it combines gacha, half price, two-for-one and under 100L sales all in one handy location. While the gacha room is always the most crowded, I am happy to wander through the other rooms without fear of having someone land on my head or run me over. Don’t let that fool you, though; I simply move into a different section, peruse and buy, then cam my way back to the gacha event to take my chances on the machines 😉

I had a little difficulty the first time I went to this round. First, I was early and landed in the water and I wasn’t alone! There was a small convention of Chapter Four would-be shoppers dog paddling beneath the ocean. When I finally made it in, it was packed and moving was nearly impossible to the point that there were four of us stacked up on top of each other at the landing point. Fortunately, I wasn’t on the bottom; I wasn’t wearing the proper attire for being the base of the pyramid! After managing to extract myself, I tried my hand at the gacha machines. On my first try, I hit a Rare, followed immediately by the dreaded message, “Unable to create object in inventory.” Ah, but it was able to take my Lindens, wasn’t it? On my second try my balance was reduced to -1L and even after buying a 0L demo (my usual method for restoring my balance), the machines weren’t giving up their wares. Dejected, I tried to TP home, only to be told that the landmark didn’t exist. Nor did my studio, the club where I work, and every location I had visited in the past two days. Clearly, someone at Linden Labs was doing their part to protect my remaining bank account!

I waited a day to return and while it was still busy, I was able to shop unscathed. I landed the Rare I was cheated out of the first time and there was no lack of spending on my part. In addition to the lovely gacha items I won from the *ionic* machine, I also scored an awesome pair of boots in another section.

I have learned a new respect for patience and persistence. Eventually they pay off…ironically, for the designers 😉
