Gracefully unboxing my new spotlights

Today I continue my slow, but yet continually ongoing, efforts to build a gallery-ish place in Second Life. The land I own is along the Route 3 road in Western Heterocera, which is (from the Wiki): “the second [oldest] mainland continent. It has the most advanced transportation systems of all mainland continents. This includes: a vast railway [...], the most complex road system and internal and external waterways. The Geographical features are unique and are composed of [...] plains, coasts, mountains, corals and hills. Heterocera is the most populated continent, with the smallest percent of abandoned land and also the [...] the smallest percent of places to rent.”

Where I am

Where I am has more of a quiet countryside feeling, however. To get to the public transport one must go a ways North-East to Yucca or a great distance South-East to Calleta (the WARR--West Atoll Railroad--is no more), there is a pod tour that passes by up the road every so often, though.

Being on the second oldest continent (where 2005 lives on!), there are a few historical points of interest nearby, such as this lovely Japonesque bridge with delightful shiny green lanterns:

and this absolutely wonderful Post-Internet-Ottoman-Rococo pagoda/bus shelter thing:


The building I have to house the gallery-ish place is a small one-up-one-down concrete box by Soy. It is awfully nice to have a balcony (I was previously underground), plus the shop window-y ground floor will work well with luck. Most of the buildings around me are Japanese-y looking, so this fits in with the neighbours too (at least I think so...):

Interior will be good for displaying stuff too (pay no heed to the magical broomstick):

Worn medieval fresco of three skeletons.

Stone steps lead up to a small lancet-arched doorway.

Sketchbook pages. A sticker for 'Penlee House, Gallery and Museum' is stuck in the top left corner. On the left page are sketches of a figure with a bob haircut in a dress, seated and standing. On the right page is a sketch of a woman in Victorian clothing seated at a table, reading a newspaper.

Sketchbook pages. A person leaning on a railing, holding a book and smoking a cigarette. A ballerina from the back. A jug, upon which is written 'Milky Beer'. Hands playing a loot. What could be Pan's head?

Updated the Lore glossary with diagrams! New and inscrutable!

Diagram of a person

Also the magic system entry is much improved and less mushy, in my opinion. It has taken it's place as a workable science replacement in-world, as per the original intention. Plus, there's inset and outset borders on everything all over the site now, as it should be of course.

Charles Verlat, The Art Connoisseurs. Two monkeys in 17th century clothes inspect a painting with some seriousness.
