Karoz sits on what’s been called Bill Hill in the last post of this blog. Not sure it’s a name I want to stick with, though… perhaps it’s a historic name of some sort, carried over from another, larger, perhaps even nearby Bill Hill (?) But anyway, Karoz believes it to be the center of his circle as depicted on this map of Jeogeot. He is in the calm in the middle now. Coolie.
He’s looking directly west here. I consider this the most interesting view within the whole property, perhaps.
Looking toward the south and back we see White Pool sitting close by as well. That’s Blue Pool directly in front of Karoz on that first snapshot here. Both are about the same size, with White Pool being the paler and less deeper blue (duh) and also the shallower. Both have 4 fish swimming in a circle within, their only animal life. Blue Pool has 4 yellow fish and White Pool (Pale Pool?) has 4 darker, redder fish. Pale Pool also has two clumps of bamboo growing from opposite banks of its small shoreline, along with some eelgrass. The closest plant to Blue Pool is a draceana, about a meter to the south but not visible in the first snapshot above.
Then we continue to circle around behind Karoz to see the Big E sitting on the ground of the property now, in its northeast corner more or less. One can also see the particle maiden grass immediately behind Karoz, which gives us a reference point for comparing this with the picture before.
Looking north this time, we are coming around to the edge of Blue Pool again. Directly in the center of this photo is a century plant found in the Bluedrake sim, free to copy. At 2 prims it looks quite nice. The single teleporter on the grounds of the property use to be just beside this plant, but I decided to create 2 ground teleporters and insert them in the House of Truth and Big E (or Big Schwa, depending on which way the broad side is facing). There’s still a rock path leading to this spot.
Drawing back further out. You can get a better idea of the size and shape of “Bill Hill”, which lies in the general center of the 4096 base of the property, or parcels 2, 3, 4, and 5 on this former map. I’ll make a new, more detailed map asap. More accurately, the hill or mound, which can also be described as a ridge, begins at the very center of this 4096 square and proceeds directly west for about 16 meters (or about 1/2 the size of a square 1024 parcel with 32 meter sides). Basically, then, it runs directly along the line between parcels 2 and 3 according to the earlier map.
The top of the mound, at 134 meters elevation, is about 10 meters above the bottom of the 2 meter deep Blue Pool (or 8 meters above the surface). The top of the ridge is also about 16 meters due west of the center of Blue Pool.
View of Bill Hill from the west, with Blue Pool between the hill and the viewer now.You can clearly see the draceana I mentioned before now (the multicolored plant to the right of Blue Pool). , although I don’t think it’s quite focused in in this picture.
Drawing further back from the same angle as before. Suddenly the relationship of the newly modified Temple of TILE becomes apparent: it is hovering just above the tree level of the property, as the Edwardston Station was before it in Noru, and also Horisme. The point of the recently added circle-based tower of the temple points directly to the center of Blue Pool immediately below it. This is indeed the focus of attention for the property.
There is also strong reason to believe that the Blue Pool represents the Blue Feather Sea of the Maebaleia continent as a whole, in microcosmic form. As such, it may also stand for nearby Rubisea, which has direct connections with the Blue Feather Sea. I’ll give more reasons for these judgments in future posts.
Drawing even further back, then. I’m looking from the sim to the west of Noru (Megi) which is now up for sale, or at least the great majority of it is. Thus its vacant quality now.
You can also see a viewing rock in front of the Victorian House (House of Truth), which marks the western boundary of my Noru properties and also sits on the west edge of the sim itself.
Another shot of Karoz on Bill Hill looking west. He is one with the pool and so on.
A look down at Karoz on Bill Hill from in front of Big E/Big Schwa. And I’ll leave this poor little hill alone for now. 🙂
