    It was my contest entry for the winter deco contest. Anyways it's on Baja, a few screens northeast of the tram yew moongate (just go to the right from the moongate). There's a platform you can walk up to for a nice view, just follow the goza stairs on up. I'll leave it up for a few days but the neighbors are starting to complain (pine needles eeeeverywhere) so it needs to go soon! :p

    Wow, are those the old faction dyed purple lanterns? They look great! A shame that on Siege, with only 1 char per account we can't stockpile things like the garlands, without spending a fortune.

    The contest is kind of on hold, I think Kayhynn has been pretty busy with RL stuff to get all the pics done.


    Yah, I have a bunch more sigil lanterns too, I can't help it I just love em. I could never part with them when I got them from idocs so now I have a zillion. The storage thing is really tough, but I think the garlands are pretty versatile and its worth it to give up a bit of storage for em. Now actually getting them...can be tough. Hard to xshard trade to get enough, tho I think if you get the xmas tickets its 6 garlands to a box and they can be turned with the dec tool. So that's not so bad.

    I can only assume someone who can cook up some of these designs is completely insane. I adore your work.

    Curious, what method do you use to get Gozas up past the first floor?

    also... what are those goblin traps there for?

    I used ladders. Took a while since you place a castle style ladder, then walk up the rungs and then take one more step, place the goza by targetting yourself, then chop the ladder, step back on the goza behind it, and spend half an hour lowering the new goza mat down. :) I can post directions later if you want. The goblin traps are just decorative. I thought they looked a bit like some small trees grown together then chopped down or something similar. The tree wore me out, I kinda phoned it in on the ground area deco. :D

    I can figure it out if I ever need to... pity, was hoping something like that could be done outside of a house.

    I do have the pics. I was blown away by the amazing entries, even if there were only a few ( I think i had a total of 8 or 9 entries for the contest)

    As Sarsmi mentioned, RL kinda kidnapped me for a while.
