Decisions Made… July 13, 2010

“Noru Woods… get the picture?’

bb:

I do now (!)

Hucka D.:

Already people are nibbling around the edges. “Why didn’t I think of this?’

bb:

Encroachment might occur. Norum mythology kicks into another gear. Or first gear.

Hucka D.:

Norum separate from Chilbo. As in olden days.

bb:

Well… where do we start?

Hucka D.:

Why don’t you explain what’s going on[ to the reader].

bb:

Reader or readers, I bought my former neighbor’s lots in Noru to the immediate west of my Blue Feather Gallery there. The idea was to acquire a square 4096 to build a new structure. Mission accomplished, but at prices. Heck’s Canyon… well, I’ll just say it came at prices. The Temple of TILE in Rubi remains, I’ll say that. But I’m done. And the Blue Feather Gallery has been preserved. And on the new, combined property: the Noru Wood has been essentially *re-created*, hehe.

Some preliminary pics. Here’s Karoz at the entrance to the old Norum, er, Station I suppose. What would be the proper name for that thing, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

It’s a shed. The Norum Wood Shed. Or just Shed. They were simple people. Still are, for they exist yet today.

bb:

OK, good enough. Then here’s a picture of Col. Ceiling Fan, the shark that lives in the pond next to the shed.

Hucka D.:

No room indeed. Much like Ol’ Granny in the Yeot Pool.

bb:

And the back wall of the shed, illustrating another (midnight environment setting) “no room” example.

bb:

So… the original name of the community was No Room, shortened to Noroom I assume before it became Norum and finally Noru.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Just like [Chilbo was Chilbol].

bb:

And these people, um, had “no room” for some reason.

Hucka D.:

It was named for the shed [actually], which, as you well know, has little room to move around in. It starts there. No room for more in the cemetery, eventually. Widows: knob wasn’t high enough to kill them when they jumped during high moments of despair — at best they might have sprained their ankle in Ankledeep Pool below the knob or mound or knoll.

bb:

OK, I get that I think. What of Chief Ironside and Cpt. Ray Burr?

Hucka D.:

A battleground between Good and Evil is found on the property. Good being the Norums and bad being the Indians or natives that use to live in the much more extensive woods surrounding your Noru sim, extending all the way south to Chilbo and beyond, and north to the Hanja Welcome Center and beyond. West to Mt. Jeogeot, all 5 of them, and east to the… well, just east also.

bb:

Where did the battle take place?

Hucka D.:

Some say in Chief Ray… sorry, Chief Ironside Hollow. Others say on the west side of the present extent of your woods. Some say on the far east side. But I don’t think it was on Sapphire’s property.

bb:

Sapphire’s house, you mean. What I’m now calling the House of Truth.

Hucka D.:

And what of Tired Falls?

bb:

I was going to ask you that. And Major Sweepy View. Person or just simply a view[ toward the House of Truth]?

Hucka D.;

Perhaps Major Sweepy View was killed by Chief Ironside who, in turn, was shot by Cpt. Ray Burr. Perhaps in Chief Ironside Hollow.

bb:

I like the idea of Burr shooting Ironside. Not sure why those names are important.

*****

bb:

I wonder how all this fits with the Blue Feather? Was Blue Feather a chief as well… I suppose we’ve already connected that name to Blue Feather Douglas, as always not to be confused with American Indian musician Douglas Blue Feather.
