EXPLORATION:

LOST ELVEN CITY

I linked in to fog….as I moved forward, I could see a picture gallery so I strolled over to take a look.

The gallery has multiple pictures that literally drew me in….

I wandered back out the way I had come, through the fog to walkways that reminded me of Channelwood.

I found myself on a plateau with no obvious way down…..or is there? I looked carefully around the stream and found my way. This is a lovely sim to explore and there is land for rent in this peaceful sim.

TWO LARGE PLOTS ON WINTERFELL REVERIE

Available late March/early April
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/152/45/26
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/151/155/23

If you’ve been following the Developments in Devokan thread on MOUL or the blog at http://blog.devokan.net you will have seen that the Devokan team is currently in transition to a new set of regions on the OSgrid. As a result, two large plots of land, each 6144 m^2 with a prim allowance of 1406 prims, on the beautifully themed Winterfell Reverie island will become available in late March/early April.

Winterfell Reverie is part of the Winterfell group of eleven fantasy medieval sims and three fantasy Tudor/Elizabethan/Victorian sims. To quote the covenant: ‘Winterfell is a twilight fantasy region designed and inspired by stories, dreams and creative interpretations of reality.’ More details about Winterfell (including the covenant) are on its ning site at http://winterfell.ning.com .

Winterfell is to the north of Caledon, so it makes an ideal base for exploration by the extensive waterways (both plots have direct access to river or sea) or by air. Indeed, a ferry system is currently under development to serve the Winterfell community and even reach Caledon Cape Wrath.

If desired, existing buildings could be left on the land (e.g. Rustica Seaside Cottage and Skye Castles Gothic Keep) for people to furnish as they wish. They are lovely buildings, and work well with the island’s architectural theme. The rent/tier is 3000 L$ per week, payable to a tier box in the Winterfell Estate Office. The estate owner is the helpful and obliging Miss Serra Anansi. If you are interested or would like more details, please contact Dot Macchi before 24 March. Thanks!

PS It’s such a lovely area that I shall be staying here, but in a smaller corner plot. Dot.
