The official Notice from outgoing Prim Minister Gabrielle Riel

Dear New Toulouse Residents,

The future of New Toulouse is coming together. I have some good news and I have some bad news. Good news first.

New Toulouse founding resident Henri Godenot has made an offer to purchase 2 of the New Toulouse sims: New Toulouse proper and New Toulouse Bayou.

This means that the New Toulouse estate will continue to exist into the future.

This means that if you live in NT proper or Bayou, you are set. There is nothing you need to do. Your sim remains as is. Your Second Life remains undisturbed.

The bad news.

If you live in New Toulouse Algiers, Bourbon or Pontchartrain, your sim is disappearing. I know how difficult this is for all of you. I have been in your exact position and I know how it feels to lose the SL home that you love. Unfortunately the vacancy levels in all 3 of those sims is too high. They can not support themselves.

If you currently live in Algiers, Bourbon or Pontchartrain, you have 4 options for relocation:

1. You can move into one of the vacant parcels in NT proper or Bayou. Both of the sims have vacant parcels.

I have marked all of the vacant parcels in NT proper and Bayou with large prims of the New Toulouse flag. This way you can walk around the sims and easily see which parcels are available. The parcels are set for sale for $1 L. They are first come, first served. You can claim one or more parcels.

If you find a parcel to which you would like to relocate, BUY the parcel for $1 L. This takes the parcel off the market. If you do not follow these instructions then someone else can take that parcel.

2. You can move into one of the vacant parcels in Witchport. This will be at no cost to you and I will transfer your tier balance to the Witchport meter. Please contact me if you choose this option.

3. You can move into the next “Witch” sim, Witchwoods. This sim will sit directly south of Witchport. This will be at no cost to you and I will transfer your tier balance to the Witchwoods meter..if you have a balance by the time the sim lands. Please contact me if you choose this option.

Witchwoods will actually be the former New Toulouse Algiers sim and it still needs to be developed. You will be able to take a temporary residence in Algiers at no cost, however you will need to pick your items up temporarily as we (Mr. Breitman and I) develop the sim. We will work with you on your parcel selection as soon as we have a map.

The theme for Witchwoods is purely fictional. It will be a dark, enchanted forest that could exist in either Europe or North America. Think Sherwood Forest, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Pagan influences with a dash of Arthurian Legend.

If you already live in Algiers and you feel that you can work with this theme, you can stay put for the moment, for free.

Witchwoods, like Witchport, will be a triple prim sim. The tier rates are identical to New Toulouse ($225 L per week for 117 prims) however they are multiplied by 3 instead of two. This means that a 512 sq. m. parcel costs you $675 L per week for 350 prims. You will have more prims in a smaller parcel.

I do not have an estimated completion time for Witchwoods. I will keep you informed as to the progress. Mr. Breitman and I hope to have it in good shape by the end of January.

4. You can move elsewhere on the grid.
The transfer of New Toulouse proper and Bayou to Henri is scheduled for January 1. After that date you will pay tier to him via his tier meters that he will install. I have removed all of my tier meters.

There are no refunds on any of the tier that remained on your meters. This is per the New Toulouse Covenant. This policy has existed as long as NT has existed.

Here are the dates by which you must move:

New Toulouse proper – you do not have to move. Stay put and be happy.

New Toulouse Algiers – please vacate prior to January 1, 2013, unless you want to make the transition with the sim as it becomes Witchwoods, do nothing and stay put.

New Toulouse Bayou – you do not have to move. Stay put and be happy.

New Toulouse Bourbon – please vacate prior to January 1, 2013.

New Toulouse Pontchartrain – please vacate prior to January 5, 2013.
If you have any questions about the information that I have presented here, please drop me a notecard (my IMs are capping) or IM me while I am online.

I’ll be speaking more about the personal side of all of this in my blog in the near future, but for now, this is all of the key logistical information that you need to know.

Thank you for waiting patiently while I worked on ensuring New Toulouse’s future.
