KOJ of Yavin IV at the Second Life Science Fiction Convention

The GNW team caught up with Master Tanira of the Kalway Order of Jedi who briefly explained the purpose of the Science Fiction Convention and its larger cause:

“The Second Life Science Fiction Convention has two purposes, one is to promote the science fiction communities in SL and second is to benefit the Relay For Life Cancer charity in SL.

This is the second year we have participated and the idea is to let other sci fi fans know that Star Wars is alive and well in SL

Proceeds from payment of the larger display plots goes to not only the tier payment but for RFL, in fact this year all six sims are in conjunction with the ACS sim (American Cancer Society) and is across another bridge from here. Most display groups have a kiosk that people are encouraged to donate to.”

The in-world slurl to the convention is given below:
