A Quick Look At Rustic & Gothic Decor For those a little behind, Last week two new booster packs were released. One labeled Gothic and one Rustic. Each pack came with new wall tiles, a few deco items, and two 'extras' that came with the boosters. For the Rustic pack, the extra was a Raised Garden Bed. Description of the item given by EA is the following: "The Raised Garden Bed is a maintenance free gardening plot. Once your garden is setup and seed planted, in 7 days you will have a healthy plant you can remove at any time." It can be placed as several sizes: 2x2, 3x3, 2x3 or 3x2. The amount of seeds you can plant depends on the size. It can hold 4, 6, or 9. For the Gothic pack, the extra was a Chest of Sending. Description of the item given by EA is the following: "The Chest of Sending allows you to send your extra items you do not want in your house to your bank without ever leaving your house."

If you wish to dye this item with natural or tokuno dyes, you must create it using any of the color woods. (It must be a freshly crafted bench, if the bench has been placed once you will not be able to dye it.) Topiarys can be made in the shape of a goblin or llama. They're crafted by using Clippers on hedges or Juniper Bushes. (Be sure to set your clippers to topiary!!) They can be cut to face east or south. Distillerys are something many players have wished for and finally received. They're crafted by tinkers and can be made to face south or east. It will take 4 heating stands (tinker), 1 copper wire (stealable item & rare loot from pirate ships), 2 Metal Kegs (blacksmith) to create one distillery.

I apologize that it took me so long to post this information. This week I will be posting deco ideas I've found with these new walls and items. If you have a screenshot or house you'd like included pm or icq me (107296451). I will also be starting work soon on my New Magnicia house spotlights as well as my Gilfane town pictorial. Have any requests? Let me know.
