Midnight Order: Merlin's Secrets

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE:  As part of our Camelot Exposed series, we here at Midnight Magazine want to shift focus to a well hidden power behind the scenes. No one really thinks much about Merlin. He’s the advisor to the King, and mentor of the White Knight. He’s always busy with the dull tasks of keeping the Kingdom running. And he’s just so cheerful, its annoying! Well, that should have been our first clue he is not as he appears. Our investigative journalists did an incredible job unmasking Merlin as none other than the Golden Knight from the Age of Ruins. Merlin is the true architect of Camelot of the Night in concept as well as stone. Midnight Magazine would love to know more of Goldie’s juicy secrets! Just what kind of game is this ancient being playing??

This round of Midnight Order is ending soon. Head over and check out the new additions at Mid point, such as Contraptions new cyberpunk textures for their Bete Noire outfit. Shown above is my Dark Camelot twist to Kaien Cross. From Midnight Order is the wonderfully gothic and holy Shattering Sun Halo by Oblivis Solem. Its animated and has texture options, or you can edit tint it how you like. From Quills & Curiosities, is the Jacquard Blouse which comes with a texture hud. Te Azrael Pants by AsteroidBox has fits for men and women and texture options. For more magical effects, are the RSS DarkAuraStaff with comes with wearable animated magical dust and sprites as well as the staff which comes with a hud to trigger an animation. In the setting, is the Lestat Sconce by Candle & Cauldron. To change the texture, click the lamp and hold a few seconds then release for the popup menu. Lights can be turned on and off. The skybox is by Spires Society and is wonderful gothic scene to drool over. Don't miss it! I hope you all enjoyed my Midnight Magazine idea. Maybe it will it will back in the future. It was fun to write with a different point of view.

Midnight Order: Scandalous

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: Stop the Presses! Oh, my dear dark hearted readers of Midnight Magazine, today is a Daily Scandal for the record books! Remember how, with her engagement to the King, the Queen of the Succubi promised to be a shiny example of Dark Camelot's high minded ideals? Oh but dear readers, you know where this is heading or this column wouldn’t be called the Daily Scandal! Our intrepid photog captured on camera the Queen's secret rendezvous with someone who is definitely not a friend to succubi! In fact, he is the last person you would expect to become entangled with one. Yes, you heard me right. The White Knight, an unstoppable enforcer of justice and punisher of the wicked, was caught at the castle in the throws of passion drinking the Queen's blood right under the King's nose! It's a Shocker! Could the rumors be true its not the King’s awesome power that keeps the White Knight in line? Oh my, the taste of that sweet, sweet seductive succubi blood must be quite a weakness for our nocturnal Lancelot. Stay Tuned, dear Readers, as we confront the King with this shocking image!

Hahaha This is was a fun image to do, 2nd in my Midnight Magazine series. Many thanks to Aarya Phantomhive for teaming up with me for this. There is another version of this image that shows more of the setting, be looking for it!  

Lots of goodies from the current round of Midnight Order. The Bete Noire waistcoat by Contraption with Turb, has something I wish all clothing had, -- alpha channels. You can hid the sleeves, the tie, and all parts so it can fit under the matching coat by Turb, also at the event. The top includes a harness for guns, can you buy the Contraptions sold separately, or add your own. It even has options for left handed, right handed, or both. The top comes with many texture options by hud. And you can also get matching pants for a complete Film Noir badass look. The Order Gauntlets by Static have fits for many avatars. Love them! And the BADs earrings rigged to fit Lelukta human or elf ears. The setting is beautiful gothic skybox, that comes in regular and crimson, Lordhunter Crypt by Spires Society.
