Today while hiking discovered another fabulous former lair of the Mossman civilization I decided to call Mocksity. Hey, I didn’t think about it when coining the name but there is resonance with another “pretend” city called Monkey City, from the Mythos planet and, specifically, the Mythos country of Wazob. Maybe I can play on that connection more later. Anyway, I actually chose the name Mocksity to reflect a kind of merger of Rock Deities and Mossmen at that location. Rock + Moss + City = Mocksity.
I’ll have photos soon of this city, which is, once again, along RIVER, as is Moss Main/Moss Most already described in former posts. It lies between the Moss Main/Moss Most complex and the portal system on same in Frank Park further downstream. I’ll also try to create a map of the RIVER showing the relationship between all these Mossmen related places.
To SL news now: Decided, at least for the present, to re-create the Edwardston Station Gallery in a simpler and hopefully cleaner and leaner fashion. The Rubi properties are still up for sale, although I’ve considerably jacked up the price on each. I’ll also have snapshots of that restoration soon. Have to decide what collections go where if I follow through with this plan of opening the ESG back up. Am trying to reduce amount of large size textures as much as possible.
I have still not decided if the craft Baker Bloch found at the bottom of the Ross Sea is The Arab, and, if so, whether it is from Mythos.
Come to think of it, The Abomination might be tied to Mossmen activities on the plane of toy avatars because, in the 7th Yale collage, the Abominable snow creature has the hand and sceptre of one of the Mossmen toy avatars (Gene Fade himself?). I now think the Abomination is tied to the presently non-corporeal Temple of TILE: both are based on the 3×3 pattern. The Abomination represents the Linden Grid, and nearby Hilo Peak, the highest of the low (SL underwater) peaks stands for Urtahra, the pre-Linden world that the square based grid was superimposed upon. Probably this means the Temple itself stands for this Grid, then, also based on square tiling as it is.
The Diagonal (Rubi) also stands for The Grid, then, in microcosmic form, as representing a single sim of this grid.
