    To the west a forest, to the north a mountain, to the south the ocean and no neighbors blocking my view in any direction.

    Now to begin the task of building and moving in.
    Any suggestions?

    Thank you GM Thowe for removing the floating stew that was blocking placement.

    The room is filled with soft light from the fireplace... Blacksun stands nervously in the doorway. He thinks to himself, "I hope this is not my end, my fate has not been sealed" His lips part and from them comes a weak and frail "hello?".

    The door behind him slams shut, then the tall back leather chair in front of the fireplace begins to slowly move. The only sound that can be heard is his own racing heartbeat and a slow exhale of cigar smoke from the mysterious chair.

    Slowly it turns to face him. The only thing he can see is a mysterious shadow of a person sitting in the chair. Fear now has him in its cold grasps as he begins to stumble on his words "listen, it wasn't my..."

    "SILENCE" says the mysterious woman.

    She slowly leans forward so he can see her face with the light of the fireplace. She wears on her face an amused yet frightful evil smirk.
    "So you are Blacksun? My associates have informed me of your treason.. One which is punishable by death."

    "Listen I'm sorry, its just.. I mean.."

    "SILENCE"

    "You amuse me with your silly ways, and that is the ONLY reason why I shall spare you. let me hear of this treason again and you will not live to regret it understood?"




    *Yes I'm bored* :p

    It was ruined when that bald cardboard cutout of an actor's picture showed up.

    Emote dammit! Not talk louder. Fake some emotion for goodness sake!

    I was thinking maybe an adult entertainment bar shaped like a pair of large breasts. Inside I have an idea to suspend npc dancers in bird cages.

    Now that man knows how to show emotion.
    Granted the only ones he knows are anger, rage, fury and hate, but still...

    The design I'm using as a base has window boxes with flowers in them. I didn't want it to look girly, so I'm putting naked male vendors carrying spears. Nothing says manly like shirtless guys with pointy sticks. Right?

    lol Thank you for the compliments :p.

    I threw that together in about 5 mins, but hardly consider myself to be good at RP or story telling heheh. Watching all you RPers everyday is having a negative effect on me!
    I would love to join PGoH or UP, but I think my John would not be to happy about it. So for now I will stick to my chaos and mayhem with B^L and NmE :).

    I (mostly) finished the design tonight. I take zero credit for this house, the design was one of Ashyn's that I blatantly stole. The only thing I did was change wall and floor colors, and changed the design of the 3rd floor window boxes a bit.

    (Please note, these pictures were taken with the EC simply because the zoom feature makes it easy to take pictures. I in no way endorse using the EC.)

    I have to decorate some time, I would like to do it this weekend, but I will be out of town. I plan on putting in stone countertops in the kitchen (2nd floor room), and in place of the pond in Ashyn's design I think I'm going to put in a soulforge.

    I like the shape, but I'm not too sure about the distinct lack of windows anywhere.

    I forgot to make it public. Right now it's as empty as the pictures. I didn't even log in last night. I was too busy watching a recording of Apple's music keynote from yesterday afternoon.

    Damn Steve Jobs, always making products that make me want to give more of my money away.
